Rose Garden

The seasons, here you watch them come and go, like lovers that change every time the spark of unnamed delight, turns and drifts over to another soul   Just as you’ve smelt the roses, their summer blooms start fading; leaving but a thorny note of regret, as petals fall, hope and belief dissolving   NowContinue reading “Rose Garden”

Disguise

I thought I knew you and so I Dropped the façade, that measured guard; Protection from enemy eyes –   Then through a trembling night we waltzed A shy courtship in the shadows; You gaze, though soft, never wavered   My hardened heart began to heal As gently I believed again In a love thatContinue reading “Disguise”

Alive

When you love, like a rocket into space You launch a once secret piece of yourself On a thrilling ride into the unknown – And part of you clenches with choking fear For there you are, exposing your true self Opening to the world to reveal your Tender vulnerabilities, those hidden Secrets now they stirContinue reading “Alive”

Forbidden

At love’s mercy she cries softly Dreaming of another’s body In the darkness, the cold silence Of the doubt that binds her firmly   Is it so wrong? – she asks as fear Keeps her vision blurred, so unclear; The demon’s voice inside her mind Is taunting all that she holds dear   And trappedContinue reading “Forbidden”

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”
