To share a story

The time that I find myself a- slipping into the desperate clutch of madness; that is the time I know I need to write, to let out all emotion’s waves, channel them;   Chasing them all into the day, for all to read the profanity of insanity’s whispering; the other voice inside my mind, itContinue reading “To share a story”

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”

Surrender

When she sang to me, her voice rode the air The sounds making love to the universe While her golden hands threaded through my hair And teasing and tempting she held me tight   When she smiled at me, my soul reached the sky Leaping and soaring on the wind’s currents To my fears andContinue reading “Surrender”

Revelation

So now you know the truth my dear, I’ve revealed all to thee; The battle fought behind closed doors – Brooding gloom of the past Now liberation sings sweetly, That there’s no more to hide; And blessed is my twitching heart – Calmed now you’re there inside   Image: Girl with a Pearl Earring, JohannesContinue reading “Revelation”

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”

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”

Across the void

I call; my voice falls on deaf ears – Words echoing into the void They’re searching for a listener, And the person who’ll chase my fears   I beg you, if you hear my cry You’ll give me a signal at last So that I may have my answer; May know the truth before IContinue reading “Across the void”

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”

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”
