Poem: Lies

Words and actions – unmatched. The truth is shrouded in mystery. So far back in history, That I begin to doubt myself. The effort applied to closing my ears and eyes, While you reveal a lie, concealing what should, Be known. Why spend more time, more energy, Entangling yourself in a web of secrecy? ForContinue reading “Poem: Lies”

My Love….

My eyes did not widen,  Like heavy husks of tea-soaked bread, I lay idle, unable to move. Submerged in the viscosity of my own tears.  How could you leave me all alone on this planet? After all of these years. They say a heart heals in the hands of time. So why does mine only hurtContinue reading “My Love….”

Poem – ‘Try’

Swallowing pride, Suppressing suggestions of surrendering, To the doubts damning me from within.   An attempt to achieve, Guised more as an attack on my ego, Failure must be coupled with Cheshire cat’s grin.    To try, An action well-known to the brave. Yet not even an acquaintance of I nor him.    Trying toContinue reading “Poem – ‘Try’”

Poem – ‘A’ Is For Attraction

Enveloped in an aura of eternal amor. Any armour I adorned, Has been undone, it has been torn.    Most magnetic is the mystery. My mind is mute from misery, As my heart mends from the lover before.   ‘A’ is for attraction, The feeling of acceptance, Of an emotion more alien and more raw.Continue reading “Poem – ‘A’ Is For Attraction”

Poem: Present/Future

  We only have the present. Regardless of what we want in our futures, It is the ‘now’ which takes all of the credit.   Living in the moment, An experience unknown to many. We disown it in exchange for a chance to oneday own a moment,  Which is nothing more than merely a ‘maybe’.Continue reading “Poem: Present/Future”

Poetry: Change

A leopard can change its spots. But cheetahs never do. Changing your mind is one thing. But changing your heart, is about as easy as making a mountain move.   2020 A new year, a new you. This year will be different. A false promise? Or does here lie the truth?   Do you needContinue reading “Poetry: Change”

Poem: Winter

  Cheeks flushed crimson, Embers crackle, As the smoke billows beyond the seams of the Oak smoked door.   A faint glow from within the forest, The little cottage. Offering temporary relief, From a permanent frost.   Brave the wind, the rain and the snow. A feat too difficult for now. Yet a necessity forContinue reading “Poem: Winter”

Poem: La Familia

La Familia, Blood’s thicker than water. A ‘V’ for Vendetta, If any were to ‘runneth’ over.   Sibling feuding subsides, Eyes are dried as, The belly of the beast rolls over in submission. Fist fights in a blink of an eye become, Nothing more than a memory of augmented vision.   La Famila, The Family,Continue reading “Poem: La Familia”

Poem: Stress

Stress. The subtle strangler. It manifests itself in many ways. A fabrication of the mind. Sending cortisol coursing through our veins. Life – so full of precious pressures. So petty, so small, minute. ‘A busy life is a happy one.’ A lie disguised as truth.

Poem: Home

Where is ‘home’? Is home my little brick house by the sea, corroded by gale gusts and seagulls? Is home the place in my mind, that place noone else can see of? Does my heart lead me home, where my parents still reside? Or if migrated, is it instead the place where I first beganContinue reading “Poem: Home”

Poem: A Parent’s Love

A Parent’s Love Embers of amor engulf us as you touch my face once more. Held in your arms as closely as the day on which I was born. You have loved me from the moment my heart began beating. A childhood spent with you, If only time could be repeated. Although I will growContinue reading “Poem: A Parent’s Love”

Poem: Rejection

Stinging like the barb of a hornet, Heckles on my neck, shocked, stand upright. I’m in disbelief.   Stormy skies swirl above me, My mind, clouded with an overcast of doubt. Why didn’t they just pick me?   I thought I was good enough, But what good is water if absent in a drought?  Continue reading “Poem: Rejection”
