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…”

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

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

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”

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”
