Desires
Insatiable desires,
Where many a soul have drowned,
Charmed by the hunter’s fires,
As his beast, so tightly bound.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Grey
With scenes of the grey in life,
The disillusioned riot,
The arbitrary is rife,
As they do feed the disquiet.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Lavender
Lavender scents do stain,
Reminiscent of you,
With a sense that remains,
Long after you pass through.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Chance Encounters

A long past chance encounter,
To be undone by my hand,
And yet I still will flounder,
Forgoing the tests life planned.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Searching
A true sense of meaning,
Is difficult to find,
The search is demeaning,
When ones eyes remain blind.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Maze
Lost in a sensual maze,
With the pleasures you have sewed,
Setting my senses ablaze:
Stimulation overload.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Lines
Tracing invisible lines,
You exposed in the moon’s light,
Each line memory defines,
As a moment, so finite.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Banquet
And you words are a banquet,
My thirst rises with the tide,
The passion leaves me languid,
Every time your words collide.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Gilded
Raised tall
Fallen
On the many
Gilded stones
Do crumble.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Hoard me, as you do books.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Ballad
The ballad of you so grand,
Waves breaking upon the shore,
Stroking each granule of sand,
Leaving shells and tempting more.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Streets
Streets empty of empathy,
The wind caresses in vain,
Though it whispers sympathy,
The touch fills me with disdain.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Verse
A collection of verse,
Read with a gentle cry,
Translucent words disperse;
Melodic for the eye.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Life as a Book
Turning pages
Such is life.
A forgotten prologue
Torn from memory
With spilled ink – blood red
The catalyst
For the afterward.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Legends
Immortal salvation,
For lovers of legend,
Light and dark’s fixation,
This affair time mentioned.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Fruits
The fruits of passion,
And stolen sweetness,
Pleasures to ration,
For our completeness.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Close
Inconsistency of breath,
Allow bygone eyes to close,
Reach for the mercy of death.
Your time you cannot oppose.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Touch
And with outstretched fingers,
All so paled by time,
The touch of you lingers,
Thought distant, still sublime.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Descending
Descending into the dark,
Spy the liberty of fears,
Labouring to leave a mark,
Painted with such dismayed tears.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Fortune Teller
Oh my sad fortune teller,
Do whisper me little lies,
Of a future so stellar,
The greatest you can devise.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Diamonds
Soaring on diamond wings,
Above a forlorn sky,
As the fading sun sings,
Tunes for our crystal high.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Walking in the rain cleanses nothing.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Moth
Entranced by a subtle light,
As a moth is so drawn in,
In this endless, lonely night,
The sun is shadowed in sin.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Harmony
Such a refined harmony,
Each single, fragile note sings,
Some may hear it artlessly,
We relish the love it brings.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Spirit
An incandescent spirit,
Empty of all sentience,
Overzealous, incoherent,
A dull glint is it’s presence.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Lighthouse
The solitary lighthouse,
Sanctuary ebbs and flows,
Dark, like gravity, does douse,
The water in riptide’s throes.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Free
If I could be so free,
To be so unrestrained,
Proud poet I would be,
With all the words I gained.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Silhouette
A majestic silhouette,
So proud in every matter,
A roar banishes dark’s threat,
Like glass colour does shatter.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
The Void
And I looked into the void,
My eyes accustomed to the dark,
With my very soul destroyed,
As the darkness left it’s mark.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Memories
My bittersweet memories,
Of ne’er forgotten spirit,
There’s peace in the reverie,
Of your last, final minute.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Inferno
And a blazing inferno,
An all consuming rage,
The flames of your ego,
Engulf on every page.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Flowers
Serenity flowers,
In the depths of this affair,
And so higher powers,
Overlook in despair.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Paths
Following shimmering paths,
To find a once youthful life,
Dazzled by the spells it casts,
As time cuts through like a knife.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Names
With a name forgotten to time,
Though a nature defining sublime,
So, so lost in the wake of your crime.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Pause
A heavily pregnant pause,
As your eyes slide to the floor,
Leaving me without a cause,
So haunted by the slamming door.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Unwritten
Many unwritten stories,
Of a forgotten lifetime,
Unexplored territories,
Left wanting, lost in their prime.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Wind
And the wind does loudly roar,
As shadows dance unabashed,
In a frenzy not asked for,
As glass thoughts are swiftly smashed.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Psychoanalyse
So psychoanalyse me,
And tell me all that I need,
To restrain my soul to flee,
And feel I am truly freed.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Mystery
The mystery of your smile,
Reminds me of younger days,
When you did pause for a while,
Before setting me ablaze.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Shadows
Crushed shadows do compose,
A dark woven midnight,
And so the moon arose,
With brevity of light.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Ashes
Now, ashes to bones,
I cannot believe,
You are just likes stones,
I still cannot grieve.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
My attraction, My distraction.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Cravings
I saw smoke and light,
Coy to it’s allure,
At the start of night,
My cravings impure.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Impulse Control
With no impulse control,
I swallow the world whole,
And as I loose my soul,
I forgo my parole.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Words restrict just as they free.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Respond
And I call to you my beau,
But my words fade beyond,
And even my own shadow,
Has a tendency to respond.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Mirror
Mirror my words so,
With reflective ripples,
Waves dance to and fro,
As the ink trickles.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Reflection
I see my reflection,
She speaks in as sharp tongue,
Devoid of affection,
With all meaning unsung.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Maturity
And as my eyes mature,
And I loose my childhood,
All magic seems demure,
I would see if I could.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Poem
So longing for release,
Ensnared by words of prey,
For this poem to cease,
On my knees I do pray.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Trauma
My reflections of trauma,
My own deadened eyes I spy,
Where tears define the drama,
Of falling from my high.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Extremities

And at the extremities,
Life becomes wild delusions,
Drunk on the complexities,
Of perfumed illusions.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Shores
And so far beyond these shores,
Sordid love is begotten,
With eternal souls at war,
By the last hero’s coffin.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Star Gazer
My sweet star gazer,
Do look to the sky.
My blue moon chaser;
Can stars answer why?
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Pen
My pen moves only for you,
By the end of my sentence,
I will seize all you imbue,
In radiant remembrance.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Love
With my foregone days,
Not so forgotten,
Memories ablaze,
A love begotten.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Restrained
I, gently restrained,
Trembling at the thought,
Of my rainbow slayed,
And swaying distraught.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Fiction
Your words a divine fiction,
Ransacking my true senses,
Empty treasures; deception;
The roots of your offenses.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Mystic
Sleeping with the mystic,
Behind a phantom veil,
My soul unrealistic,
As shadows do prevail.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Bookkeeper
Black ink and fantasy,
Dragging us deeper,
The reality,
Of the bookkeeper.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Calling
And trapped in this quagmire,
I call out just for you,
Be water for my fire,
And save me from my rue.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Words
And when I have no words,
You pen ink just for me,
Words on the wings of birds,
Freeing me from my plea.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Autumn
Autumnal drops of rain,
The scent of old and new,
When shades of Earth stain,
My being feels so true.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
For the strength of me,
I cannot see through,
With my thoughts beastly,
From sanity’s coup.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Twisted
Twisted visions of meaning,
As deception call my name,
Delusions of heaven seeming,
To be evolved out of shame.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Determined
Scarlet tears of loss,
Cried so mercilessly,
For the lines I crossed,
Determinedly.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Two stories of the same words.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
A card so unsigned,
How strange we do find,
A farewell of mind.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Swash
She perched by the coast,
So lost among the wash,
Faded as a ghost,
Entranced by the swash.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Clouds
Clouds of parting wisdom,
Wisps of yesterday’s songs,
Some say that the rhythm,
Will right all of our wrongs.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Contrasts
Intrigue by the night,
Sad truths by the day,
A lifetime in flight,
As the sun does stay.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Holes
And you were digging holes,
Besides the windy road,
Where much wearier souls,
Had so wistfully slowed.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Sky
A sky of unsteady light,
Only stars are visible,
In the contentment of night,
Our shadows invisible.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Doors
And there beyond my locked door,
Hear the temptation of sound,
A promise of so much more,
If only the key were found.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Early Hours
In the earliest hours,
When all the stars have risen,
The time for musing is ours,
Unhindered by day’s prison.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Swollen

Swollen times of pleasure,
Tangled between the hands,
Each breath that we treasure,
Is measured in the sands.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Royal
The taste of such succulence,
Darkened by shades of royal,
Falter at the opulence,
And savour the disloyal.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Moths and Butterflies
And we are defenseless,
As moths are drawn to flames,
Fooled by the resplendence,
Of drawn out butterfly games.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
My unconscious words of devotion,
Are movements of time in slow motion.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Empty
With an empty bottle,
Drained of integrity,
Folly of the mortal,
Downed in such brevity.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Intensity
Hesitant and afraid,
Meeting your intense gaze,
Unknowingly I prayed,
For answers your eyes raise.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Sanity
The stealing of my sanity,
So does this deep inner pain,
Loosing my humanity,
Though the normal I do feign.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Cascade
And I, caught in this cascade,
As my life swift flickers by,
Unraveling my charade,
In water’s soft lullaby.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Stars
Lustrous as a wandering star,
Both as beautiful and bizarre,
You shine upon the near and far,
My emblematic shining star.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Divine Madness
Tempering a divine madness,
Our love has not a border,
Itself an Achilles heel,
Lawless, as it does wander.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Exodus
Oh, such illusions I do see,
And so devoid I do feel,
And whipped by a groggy breeze,
An exodus at my heel.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Peacock
Such a demure peacock,
Blending into the scene,
Far from your vainful flock,
Just for me do you preen.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Ripples
The wind, the clouds and the rain,
They create rhythmic ripples,
Forcing my life past the pain,
Soothing my smallest trickles.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Filters
Looking through filtered eyes,
I cannot see your flaws,
Such devotion I prize,
Though adverse to my cause.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Breathless
And I am breathless,
Faced with such sparkling splendor,
Flawless faces make one jealous,
As youth blooms once more.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Rain
And when following the rain,
Do smell the sweet scent of earth,
And all of which life does gain,
And the flowers it does birth.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Stardust
Snorting the stardust,
To begin our night,
Heightening our lust,
And our pure delight.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Waking
You are a wondrous waking dream,
My sunshine on the horizon,
And just out reach you gleam,
My bright star, forever rising.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Flames
The hot flames licked in silence,
Deep within my burning dreams,
My heart marked w/ defiance,
Though my soul ripped at the seams.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Type
I hear your thoughts as you type,
Each letter a melody,
To be harvested when ripe,
And consumed in ecstasy.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Ages
Living in endless ages,
Never to taste the release,
When time ceases it’s rages,
We never will find our peace.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Confessions
Pen my confessions,
Each and every word,
Write without questions,
Apologies unheard.
—————————————————————————————————————————
Disappear
Let us disappear,
Our hearts in shrouds,
Out of love, not fear,
Far beyond the clouds.

Trust
Forgetting where and then,
Of times of darkest night,
And learning to trust again,
That you will be my light.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Beauty
A beauty so refined,
Yet in rue you do wait,
Tragedy so designed,
So graceful in your fate.

Sunset
Fearing a farewell,
Since the day we met,
Eyes on which I dwell,
Your eyes of sunset.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Fragility
At my most fragile,
With delicate bones,
My heart so agile,
But every beat groans.

Generation
My generation,
Of fateful & hopeless prospects,
Money cessation,
And anxiety complexes.

It’s pleasures duly sung,
With my most intimate,
Pried open with your tongue.

Yearning
My heart dances with the flame,
Of fire’s magical burn,
A beauty I cannot tame,
A beauty for which I yearn.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Sublime
Such beauty I do revel,
In the sublime that you paint,
A palette from the devil,
The blood of wandering saints.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
For all the dark I do think,
And all the the words I do link,
My hand a rainbow of ink.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Lady Luck
Oh my fair lady luck,
Do dance with me tonight,
As we leave them awestruck,
As my fortune shines bright.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Sentinels
Ancient sentinels roam,
Below a green canopy,
Mortals of this blue dome,
Their souls but a fantasy.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Fog
Alone in the heavy fog,
Remembering a tale told,
Hearing the divine monologue,
Comforts in the dark and cold.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Inked
Forever inked on my skin,
Is the mark of my misdeed,
Of a murder deep within,
In the colour I let bleed.

Chance
In this cruel game of chance,
Fate rolls lucky seven,
And as swift as it’s glance,
You’re in death’s possession

Crutch
With coy and playful fingers,
Such a deep lustful touch,
The heat on my skin lingers,
Like a drug, you are my crutch.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Corruption
Viewed by corruption itself,
These deluging memories,
Are drowning my sense of self;
Improper ceremonies.

Blanket
We wrap ourselves in the warmth of stars,
Sharing this magical blanket of ours,
As you regale me with your memoirs.

Treasures
My truth and treasures I guard,
Cannot be just discovered,
Unraveling my mystery,
Leaves me so deeply scarred,
Do not leave me uncovered,
Rewriting my history.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Cocoon

Life in my cracking cocoon,
I do find myself anew,
As seasons change with the moon,
I do bid my shell adieu.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Clocks I
In my haste I ne’er heard the clock,
As my years slipped through my fingers,
Slowing gears and time did mock,
All my life as death lingers.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Clocks II
My clock ticks by onwards,
Believing my own life to create,
And as my chances do rush forwards,
I ignore my delivered fate.

Heartbreak
Forgetting what we adore,
With heartbreak coming so soon,
And as you walk out my door,
I’m left with the taste of wounds.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Rituals
With a letter to invite,
The changing Equinox,
Beneath heaven’s orb’s light,
Rituals most orthodox.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Dancing in the pouring rain;
In the tears of the insane,
Not a thing is left to gain.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Hanging
I’m hanging in wonder,
From stars so far hung,
Hear the sounds of night,
The beat of the thunder,
A song to be sung,
By the pale moonlight.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
The Wolf
The wolf does bring,
Storms of the wild,
As a plaything,
For the exiled.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Thief
And you are the very thief;
Emotional traveler.
What could you want with such grief?
Sociopathic dabbler.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
A Shared Kiss
And who could have ever guessed,
That it would so come to this.
Are we cursed or are we blessed?
A shared kiss on the abyss.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Exposed
Artfully exposed,
Words that never die,
And where they are posed,
Secrets do entwine.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Strokes
Her fading into pale strokes,
With soft lines that mesmerise,
Her words you do need to coax,
Through whispering butterflies.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Flowers
Flowers of love’s high,
To nurture and bloom;
Flowers in the gloom,
To wither and die.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Perceptions
A whispering breeze,
We hear the soft truth of trees,
Perceptions do change.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Meeting
As we met I did blush pink,
Like an immature rose,
In the small café precinct,
My coffee dregs told your prose.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Undefined
Finding myself truer,
Delving into my mind,
To the outside viewer,
I am still undefined.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Pastures
The voice within me pleading,
Your pure indulgence to find,
Such amorous thoughts seeding,
In the pastures of my mind.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Kings
The powerful kings of lore,
They leave lessons in the dust,
Warning of perilous war,
To gain idols doomed to rust.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Sounds
And mere sounds are not words,
Words must have depth and soul,
Meaning to move towards,
So my words have a goal.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Tangled
Oh, to be tangled in sheets,
And not just pushing paper,
And to dream of foreign streets,
With bed breakfast to savor.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Revealing
Viewing my reflection,
Perhaps I had misread;
A deeper dissection,
Reveals what I ne’er said.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
Fate
My fate on a coin toss,
Heads to do, tails to not,
Unprepared for a loss,
Consequences not thought.
—————————————————————————————————————————-
I barely made it to the end.
