Not This Year
I see you laughing and I’m lost in your smile / Just let me / Wrap arms around you and stay still for awhile / Oh I’m so tired …
Summer is here again / Strip off and phone a friend / Have a few drinks and head / Down to the beach and then…..
To the wealth of my lifetime / And the people I left behind / To the questions I got right / and the answers I couldn’t find
They waste their time / Finding fences to hide behind / The fences shatter / when you stop building them up
An eye for an eye leaves us blind, leaves us crawling all around in the dark, back at the start. Always beginning, never going nowhere. Who…
……with her face all kitten
Maybe I yearned to join you there / To hear you breath / To touch your hair / To feel your pulse / To make you sigh / And live our lives in…

Poem for a Lover
As your mercurial eyes rival the sky that glows so high above you, smile my dear and have no fear for you must surely know I love you.
Staring a hole
My eyes stalk out beyond me and gently caress your soul / They push and pull your dignity; they break you and make you whole

Lend me no strength. Afflict me no weakness.

It was(n’t) too late

Cascading light builds an approximation of heaven as Cloud City dances with the wind to its bosom
Poem for a friend
I want to see you mature and find your calling / I want to see you rising up and not falling / I want to see you rolling with the good and …
You know who you are
I can’t imagine how much hate it takes / To blackmail a family with murder, dismemberment, rape / I was only a boy but I heard it all…
S & M
When you’re all tied up your barely human / You’re sex / You’re sin / You’re what I needed
Falling stars and rusted gates
Love Poem (unrequited or otherwise)
You’re something sweet and crazy, something I would break myself to love / I feel so tired, see you see me
Chapter 1 – The Three, Chapter 2 – Th…
The bulk of our story takes place near one thousand years after the birth of these women, in a time and place where beauty such as they onc…
Safe and Sold
Atomize the feelings falling all around here
Black spots dance as fingers push down / Thoughts are very far away, blood is rushing loud
Man walks into a docters office…
Everything looks strange when you see only parts of what you’re meant too.
