Broken

Dear Love, why does it hurt so much When all the pieces fall apart An aching wound, a bleeding hole; Though I once yearned to be alone Sweet love how did it all go wrong When was it that our paths diverged? What took us travelling on this course; Or were we doomed right fromContinue reading “Broken”

Serenity

Take me far from civilisation Where, in the mellowing twilight haze, The sea meets the sky, a whispered touch Like the luring kiss of temptation; And to infinity your eyes gaze Singing to serenity’s calling There’s no need for a destination When you’re content, to wander life’s maze Caught in the beauty of the moment

At the end of the day…

You surround yourself With noise and clutter Distractions and people And tasks to be done   Filling the day, you While away the time As you avoid the truth, Keeping up the facade   But at the end of the day When the night falls There’s no one but you, Nothing but your mind  Continue reading “At the end of the day…”

Blackout

It comes, sometimes so sudden Like fog in the mountains, Descending into every rise And fall of the slopes and valleys; Erasing all sense of up and down, as The whole world turns a numbing white   Only it’s black, black and hot As a burning sensation rushes to your head And sparks of concentratedContinue reading “Blackout”

Honesty

Why was it that when you were here, The words would not flow from my lips? I could not open up my heart And clenched within, my sonnets stayed Held like prisoners in a mind that Stumbles over forbidden dreams   Yet now, whilst far away you are Words burst forth like a stream inContinue reading “Honesty”
