Love, Peace and Wonder

I stand before you, tired and meek

Frail, withered weak

Have felt the stinging burn of fire

Melt my skin, thick in mire

The pain endured to great to resist

Ride the glide, as a razor rounds wrists

Cutting in, not too deep

Tingles the flesh that yawns to sleep

The flow is slow as light fades to a glow

Where peace, finally felt, seems real

On my knees, I kneel

With the strength left

Saved, so as to express

To you, to me, see my face in the mirror

Showing all the scars of horror

My true spirit lives inside of me

Not in a garden, a promise of heavens glory

Not among the blessed martyrs

Or those taken as innocent youngsters

Here in me, with what passion I alone can muster

Announce my freedom to live in love, peace and wonder

His Journal Bled In A Black Red





Page after page, hand drawn images, shadows cast lowly visages
Never the two shall ever meet, though desire craves to greet
Sharing tids, of bits, of pieces, a puzzle begins to reason
The constant pounding as a boy, beating drums at deaths door
A shell covers his true form, hiding from a raging storm
Shades that fall, sight darkens, blackbird sings, the night harkens
His journal bled in a black red, thoughts exploding in his head
Page after page the final image, a moment frozen, captured in a message

These are the words that end a picture story
Created in the darkest colours, a black red only
Greys lightly caress, day’s that are blessed
Etched across a face, forever depressed
Lines that break tips, furiously scratching
Tearing the pages, fibres screaming
A secret held from roving eyes
Reveals a truth from constant lies
The joy of being lonely is a disease
It pains, it buckles the strongest knees
Repeats, reciting a prayer
The courage to stand square
Eye to eye in fear, bound us both
Pledge a loves never ending oath

Lips Press

Closes her eyes as his lips press

That night, the first kiss to last

His hands caress, her flesh

Memorizing the curves that dip and rise

Absorbing the trembling beat, silently cries

With each kiss planted, a smudge remains

It burns painfully sweet

Yet yearns painfully for more

The taste of her blooms nectar

Stains his lips a honey sheen

His tongue tingles between

Her open, swollen, petals

With every thrust invading her vessel

Hips rise and buck to meet

As toes curl sensually sweet

His mouth, his lips, his tongue greet her feet

Sucking and licking a ticklish treat

The moistness of her core calling again for more

In whispers she implores

She wails to screams as he penetrates her womanly door

To her heart shared from the care it breathes

Swallowing whole the unity of two

The desire to feed a starving fire is freed

Time stands still, gravity fills the thrill

Tangled all night long in ecstasies song

Together peaking in moans that long

To taste the mix of loves drink

Her mouth takes in his stick

As she savours their flavours

And licks her lips inviting

He closes his eyes as her lips press…

Dedicated to Lovers ➰

Beautiful Sadness Splashes All


Sorrow plants, a pond reflects
Dampened earth, soaks the heart
Lilly pads float, to reach the sun
Flowers bloom, to catch her eyes
Ripples wave, to sounds of cries
Stinging tears, that trail and fall
Beautiful sadness, splashes all

Place of peace, in meadows hold
Embraced by winds, that softly kiss
In storied song, of natures bliss
Love is found
Closest to ground
Memories kept, held to recall
Beautiful sadness, splashes all

A forest green, buzzing with life
Bluebirds sing, in trees above
Butterflies float, bouncing along
Dragonflies dip, then dive
Bees do it, in the hive
Storybook tale, long and tall
Beautiful sadness, splashes all

A right of birth, the first breath dubs
Happy-go-lucky, born to be free
Dorian Grey took the Devils deal
Possessed by his reflection seen
Through a mirror, smoke and screen
Truth concealed, drowned in alcohol
Beautiful sadness, splashes all

A Poet Strikes A Pose

Alone in a pool of darkness, feeling a tug, slowly, pulling, under

Helpless cry, no one hears, is there, anybody there?

Begin to feel the water fill, air expelled, bubbles floating still

Fighting to stay above but darkness won’t let go

Taking hold of its desire to own, a dying heart sinking down

Darkness never lies below the line, its truth is to consume

Leads the mind sinking deep as memories fade they weep

Fighting to stay above but darkness won’t let go

Disappointment led the way, a heart turned brittle and grey

Tears washed by rain, into the sea, cleansed of hurt and pain

Baptized for the final time, sins forgiven, no longer afraid to die

Fighting to stay above but darkness won’t let go

Peaceful sunrise fills the skys, below the surface darkness smiles

Streams of light try’s to reach, where a treasure sunk besieged

Lifeless outstretched arms rose, a poet strikes a pose

No more fight left to stay above because darkness finally won
