Category: Looking at You

Looking

You go on track,

Trying to go faster,

Competing narratives.

Ask you

Will you last here?

No.

Speeding away

From controversy,

No no no.

Climatic changes

In our lives

Leaves us strangers

To truth,

So we tell lies.

A truth … Read the rest

In Passing

Touch,

Perhaps not a woman

Demands.

I guess you know

I was in love with you.

No demands.

Hard as old boots.

No, not commanded.

The suspension

Of proclivity;

My activity

I forget to mention,

Just a story that passed.… Read the rest

Face

Your face

Is everything I need.

You are beautiful,

And my creed

Is honour.

Respect and duty

To the man next to me.

Are you faithful

To this memory?… Read the rest

No Shame Or Blame

What tares like a passion

Can drift; can lift two people apart.

Who good heart

But not meant to be.

I know you are over me

But where does that

Leave me?

Apportioning no blame

The shame is mine.

But … Read the rest

Passenger

Took a woman for a date,

But I arrived late,

Apologising like a child.

This was my fate.

She said ‘Don’t bother

This place is great.’

I took the menu;

Let’s go wild,

The most expensive

Bottle of wine,

That … Read the rest

Falling

I love a precious woman,

She can come when she please;

I do not tease.

My integrity is every thing

I have to offer.

I hope she takes it,

Because guess what?

I fell in love.

The queen of angelic… Read the rest

The Joker

I can’t fake it;

You can trace it to memories

I chose to forget.

Will never leave me

The begotten one.

I don’t live

In regret.

You bring purpose

In the shine

Of the smile,

And gentle laughter

That touches … Read the rest

Film

If you don’t want to laugh,

Or cry

You are missing

Something.

What jelly

In your head

Counts for a brain?

Is he insane?

Possibly.

But he remains

The same.

Not seeking fame.

More a notoriety;

That’s the suit

That … Read the rest

Within Again

There is a stage

In the address of man,

Who could do better?

But how he can.

Immorality revoked,

He must perform,

Lest chokes

In the air frame,

Limit his scopes.

But the torture

And the rage

Within him

Threatens … Read the rest

Head

Let’s take a drive;

See what’s mine.

You have nothing.

Committing no crime,

But you blue it away.

That was yesterday;

Tomorrow you will be fine.

You loved, but hurt several times.

That is the curse

That is humanity.

 … Read the rest

Marriage Plan

I know I can be difficult to manage.

But that’s what makes a marriage.

We are partners in time,

Locked together.

You watch my back,

I will watch yours.

Wherever we look,

We don’t look at the score book.

That’s … Read the rest

The Footballer

I watched the sun come up today;

Naked trees

Beneath a cloud of grey.

But if you can’t ping a forty yard pass you are nothing;

A footballer, that’s what you are.

Call this the baller.

We do not do … Read the rest

The Quiet Man

Don’t worry about the noisy ones,

Too obvious.

The quiet man,

More dangerous.

No one knows him.

Invisible underground;

Can you find him?

Doubt it.

But sounds you may recover on radar,

Because he can’t shut up.

He leaves a … Read the rest

Look, But Don’t Go In

Look, but don’t go in.

The mystery that lays within.

No escape.

He is driven

By a passion

That lies within him.

No subterfuge,

No lies;

They only

Compromise

Our endeavour.

We don’t go on forever.

So we must be … Read the rest

Believe In You

Bravery is not

The knowledge

That you win;

Embrace

The possibility

That you can.

Do your best

Out there my son.

Smell the field;

This is where

You are from.… Read the rest

Strung Out On Heaven’s Light

Strung out on heaven’s light.

I’ll be good tonight.

The strangers came today,

To take me away.

A nuisance to society

They said.

Don’t believe it;

Every kiss I gave

Was meant for you.… Read the rest

The Touch Of You

The touch of you

Sends a transformation

Through.

This ain’t no blind desire

You may say I am in.

I love you, for you are

No distance ever too far.

But just the thought of you

Leaves me inspired

To … Read the rest

I Speak On My Terms

I speak on my terms,

The only terms

I own.

I wish you well,

But our hearts

Swell

With prospect.

So much to do,

So little time.

I can’t reject my nature,

A creature

Of my own.

I loved,

I … Read the rest

I Wish

Walking city streets

Late at night.

I can’t sleep,

The bed still made.

Remembering

How we used to be;

The memories

Never fade.

Each corner I turn

Where recollections

Still burn,

I really should have stayed.

For Your Eyes Only

I hold your hand
And feel the fear inside;
You never met anyone like me. I am no threat
Forever in your debt.
You saved me once.
I must repay 
I watch the sunlight
Cascade into an empty room
And

Struggle

You are in the corner
And you can feel the pain,
Taste the blood
In your mouth
And carry on again.
So much to lose
But more to gain;
Unaware
Of the crowd
Baying for your blood tonight.
For their
