I don't need Happy

There is madness in my veins
pumping with a restlessness,
driving frenzied movements,
frantic notions, impulsive deeds.

It speeds through thoughts collected,
scattering focus to the wind
holding my footsteps as they fade,
not for long, in one single place.

Please, you must stop, I need to breathe,
I need to find rest from your driving need to….. what?
You’re carving away at my soul, wearing down my feet,
release my burning muscles,
still my heart, it pounds,
allow me to trust what I believe,
I don’t need happy, I just need peace.

Scars of Love

picture source:
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

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

picture source:

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.
