Scars of Love




picture source: https://za.pinterest.com/pin/375909900130642199/
Here is a tale from the heart that is mine
all I have said and I’ve felt inside
big is the touch you have left on me
I am marked by you, it was you set me free

...we collided with a thunder in a dark deserted street
through storms that raged in skies and under feet

our wish, our desire, our ruin, our defeat
a story that’s written, preordained we'd meet

we fought and battled, satisfied our love
followed senses, while sense, mmm, not so much

we have scars
from the claws
of our love

now it’s time
I can start
no matter how
getting over you
for as long
as I find
myself
again

for as long as I find myself again©

A Pledge




A pledge is a pledge,
requires reverence upon acceptance,
kept and honoured as it is, for the rest of time,
never to be revealed nor renounced,
a binding promise to silence,
even with the shifting hours
as they change and mould who we are.

The Cracks of Time









Crack upon crack,
gathered by passing time,

crack upon crack,
marks of my placement
in this world,

crack upon crack,
inflicted on me, or by myself,
some by choice whilst some had to be,

crack, crack, crack,
the maze of a fractured self,
re-connected by the grace
of heavenly spirits late, late at night.

You may find fissures, you can see the cracks,
but I do stand before you, broken, I'm certainly not.

I know I'm an addict

I know I’m an addict.
Know too, I know
there’s no substance capable of stilling
the restlessness alive inside me,
of silencing the voices,
always, always calling,
of relieving the tension in the spring
within my muscles and my nerves,
of freeing my physical body
the way only my mind can set me free.
Which? ......that's my choice to make.

Absolution

Long is the day whose end you can't foresee

narrow the ledge of bliss for lovers to dance

never-ending the breath of life when death stands at your door

eternal is the road we walk to lasting absolution.

Some things are forever

You’ve shown me to fly,
I followed without reservation,
entered with you into the grounds
retained for rapture and devastation.
Unable, unwilling, to leave this park,
you fed me with your possession.

It’s cold now we don’t fly,
the howling wind my sorrowed call,
ice slices through where
your presence’s been withdrawn,
my hunger, this need, unsated, remains,
your claim on me, forgone.

In the Land of Dreams

In the land of dreams
exists a time,
made from purest bliss
of both body and mind.

All too vividly you are shown,
the now, through the wonder of a child,
touched by an awakened consciousness
it exposes truths from lies,
subjugated to the deepest possession of your flesh,
thus ingrained in your being till the day you die.

Just a few ever get to have it all.

ADD overdrive!!!





I want to observe,
you like to be observed,
I crave the anonymity granted a stranger,
you thrive when your presence is acknowledged,
being a part of, escapes my desires,
you slide past strangers, turn them into names.

When you capture my attention, be warned I’ll lift you high,
higher than you’ve ever felt,
I’ll stretch your depth and your limit,
I’ll tie you down with ropes of fire,
I’ll burn you if you do not know when to tell me it’s time to stop…

I hold my breath
slowly expend
the number of breaths
I am meant to breathe
