The Dawning Night

The sun, she stoops to kiss the sea Reluctant touch, as fatefully Her colour bleeds away from sight Cedes to murky realms of twilight But until then she glows fiercely Defiant of her destiny Rebelling against her night foes Though caught in death’s spasmodic throes Up above an erupting sky Signals to all a warningContinue reading “The Dawning Night”

Prophet

The sweet light that you bring, shining To the depths of my stormy mind Filtering through the tears, it makes The most colourful of rainbows   Then in the sanctuary of your calm This peaceful place, love seizes me And holds me tight, while watering Seeds of hope you long ago sowed   Are youContinue reading “Prophet”

Distraction

You’re most vulnerable Absent distraction Nothing to hide your Bubbling emotion   You thought the reverse That with time and space You’d at last find a Break from your mind’s race   But there is no calm No stillness and ease When really, deep down The soul is diseased   Image: Edvard Munch, The DayContinue reading “Distraction”

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

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”

Fool

Unsatisfied, you spend days Searching for something more Craving all the answers, You yearn for something better, An antidote to your banes, And for life to be flawless.   But whilst you do, the present Slips away forgotten, and lays In tattered shards, as ghosts Of a forbidden future Haunt your dreams, Stalk your wakingContinue reading “Fool”

Won’t you

Won’t you come dance with me? And let go of fear As we flow through the music, Dive into ourselves   Exploring those treasures, Precious soul secrets, Hidden within they Wait for melody’s light   Won’t you come sing with me? And let go of pain As our voices rejoice, Entwine through the air  Continue reading “Won’t you”
