I have Cut Off my Love [poem]

Posted on Updated on

i_have_cut_off_my_love

I have cut off my love
for you
Like sailors stem the strident tide
(I did it only to survive)
Pushed all the crazy paving way outside
That I no longer have to walk beside you

I have strapped up my arms
with glue
A jacket strait from padded cells
All wrapped up in my little shell
I hug myself in vain [my private hell]
That I no more can throw myself around you

Meditation on Midnight (2010/2011) [sonnet]

Posted on Updated on

With heaps of darkened ashes stretched behind,
[Like dusty shrouds with traces (twisted time)
Of shameful things as well as the sublime
Of all the kindly deeds (and not so kind)]

The fading moments take their deathly toll;
While scythe-like shadows hover round the bell
The last remaining shudder sounds the knell.
(See the coffin decked in bright burnished gold).

Nothing Stays the Same [poem]

Posted on Updated on

nothing_stays_the_same

Even though our faces take the same form every day,
Secret changes happen there (the realful underplay).
The time will come when –
Looking in the mirror at our eyes –
We’ll see that transformation comes
And realise
Time flies.

Flotsam Jetsam [sonnet]

Posted on Updated on

flotsam_jetsam

Appearing like the dawning of a day,
She slowly made her light shine in my soul.
Exploding like the sun’s horizon play,
While diamond facet glistening glows unfold.

Now mesmerised by all the shades I see
Or feel inside; and torn apart by grey
And empty prisms swathed in filigree,
My golden splash of glare becomes dismay.

When moonly tides turn waters into foam,
I feel my full desires begin to drown.
My passion waxed and waned (no more to roam);
All light delights and gleams you now confound.

The maiden of illusion fades once more
While I am all washed up on distant shores

Strangled [song lyric]

Here is a song giving my personal take on organised religion – which I believe to be one of the greatest troublemakers in the world. Religion tends ultimately to bring death and destruction rather than life and creation. This world needs spirituality rather than religion…

You Didn’t Even Know [song lyric]

Posted on Updated on

you_did_not_even_know

This is a little song (in style naive) which I wrote many years ago in praise of my ideal woman (who probably doesn’t exist)

 

 

When I looked into your eyes
And it took me by surprise
I saw you — I knew you.
Never thought that it could be
Doesn’t come that easily
I loved you — it’s all true
It all happened to me.
