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

Let your mind be…

Let your mind be the lover, that Catches your body when you fall Holding you tight, giving you strength; Courage to keep fighting your fight   Let your mind bring you the passion That will invigorate your heart Burning blaze, rising from a spark To shine a light through despair’s haze   Let your mindContinue reading “Let your mind be…”

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”

Sunrise

Waking mercy of the sunrise Won’t you show me where your strength lies Furnish hope and give me courage To endure this earthly body   For the limits of the flesh Weaken resolve, crippling the soul And the numbness of a frigid night Is stealing joy away from sight…   You wonder why it allContinue reading “Sunrise”

Wilderness

Ahead it stretches, all around – The wilderness, this unmapped land A forest thick to infinity, and valleys so deep The light doesn’t reach their hidden corners, Where dark secrets grow in empty fathoms Hollow, yet laying contentedly In stillness, much unlike the restless Chambers of your bleeding heart   Watching, you marvel in silenceContinue reading “Wilderness”

Goddess

I hear, before I see her With her voice like molten gold Weaving through the trees it fills The spaces between with glory   And I feel, tug on my heart A firm pull, but not ungentle Sure and true, like wisdom’s whisper Guidance from a future that I dream   Then I glimpse, midstContinue reading “Goddess”

I will be

When you’re feeling all alone I’ll be there to guide you home Though the road may weary you I’ll make sure your path stays true   When the sun sets for the day I will drive your fears away And though dark the night may be With my light I’ll make you see   ThingsContinue reading “I will be”

Despair

Hungry echo of fear, Dormant whisper in blood Chews away at threads, In the fabric of time.   Gnawing at the soul, As life seeps from flesh Convulsions numb love, Wounded body fading.   Into the night, Into darkness As passion grips a mind, Holding onto a dream.   But as answers disappear, Hope morphsContinue reading “Despair”
