Connection

Sometimes it’s not what’s said or done Not words, but silences between Where an echoing stillness guides You to a place of quiet peace; There a secret space awaits, and Only now you dare to open Up to trust, whilst comforting eyes Teach a different kind of lesson   Painting by Antoni Caba

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…”

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”

Harmony

The tinkling notes of birdsong Come wavering down the aisles Spreading midst the columns, Joined by weaving vines   Eternally strong, the stone rises Starkly against those gentle Faltering tones that flicker, Tentative in their serenade   Manmade and natural beauty Just for this moment standing Side by side in perfect harmony, A whispered glimpseContinue reading “Harmony”

Hate

Hate you strike, without a thought A sudden tempest on a calm spring day Plucking at the cherry blossoms Their fragile petals, fair like snow Now stained with blood, and the tears Of too many punctured promises Dreams that will never come true As the storm sweeps them from sight   Up above, a burningContinue reading “Hate”

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”

The woman she can be

She’s seduced by confident looks The promise of protection She’s unsure, unsteady, unknown Straight into his arms she runs   Confused bird Wings still growing Dazzled child Heart in awe   She’s told her thoughts don’t matter And that pleasure’s not for her She just has to listen and please For now, let go ofContinue reading “The woman she can 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”

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”
