Dilettante

Join the dots,
Of my tears.
Hear the fears,
In my heart,
What do they say to you?
On my knees,
In deep freeze,
And praying,
Don’t go down that hole.
Don’t go down again,
No, no, no.
We both … Read the rest

New Years

New year’s eve,
Brazilian style.
Nephews, nieces,
For a while.
If this don’t make,
You smile,
You’re not a child,
Inside.
I know you are.
You want to share,
But you’re going spare,
Inside.
They fill the room.
Different faces,… Read the rest

Dark Streets

Walking down dark streets.
Darker thoughts follow him.
Where does he begin?
No story left,
The warp and weft,
Of life he wears,
His cares in every stitch,
Yet rich with ideas.
He looks for ancient patterns,
In a tidal … Read the rest

Blame

Blame,
Taken fully, or not at all,
Either point untrue.
Along the line,
Which joins the two.
Where do I stand?
The call is up to you.
I cannot judge,
Lest I am too easy,
Or too harsh,
But I … Read the rest

The Question

He’s  sentimental,
Just a fool.
With his dreams,
Or so it seems.
Moon light,
Scented roses,
Pose a question,
That pulls,
At his heart.
Can he start?
He must,
Or he will go mental.
Thinks he’s got a virus,
Maybe … Read the rest

Humanity

Listen well in quiet rooms,
There maybe something there.
Speak soft amidst the noise of crowds,
And your voice will be heard.
Act when others do not dare,
They are full of doubt and fear.
Be generous when you have … Read the rest

What Must be Done

Structure imposed,
On the structureless.
Meaning imposed,
On the meaningless.
The beauty of chaos,
And the pointless,
Juxtaposed.
Reality paper thin.
Trying to make sense,
Where do I begin?
Will someone ask,
What’s going on?
They don’t know,
So I … Read the rest

Distance

You keep your distance,
Its hard to explain,
But I won’t complain,
Just give me a chance.

I really don’t care,
Actually I do.
Perhaps I am untrue,
Maybe I am a liar.

I have no defence,
Total transparency.
That … Read the rest

New Chapters

Never deny
Who you are
What you did
Or said.
Unreliable voices
in the head.
Take care
I am here
You are there
But together
We turn fear
Into friend
Look back
Was it ever
Really there?
Stories don’t end… Read the rest

Poetry

Poetry,
Is not ballet.
Daggers drawn,
Before the dawn
Appears.
No choreography,
Here.
If you really want,
You will pay in tears.
We measure,
Each one.
Seems you are debit,
My son.
Begone!
No, stop. Listen.
You can get this … Read the rest

No Idea

No idea where I take this don’t want to share.
Mental illness,
Is not a disease,
But please me,
Don’t walk away,
From me

Sometimes I think stoically,
You can burn the past.
It won’t last.
Will always bite you … Read the rest

Forget It

Happiness, step on my mind.
Take liberties,
Where I find,
But not with you.
Stew me out,
I can handle it.
Show me the door,
As I kiss you,
J’adore.
I got more,
Than this.
Don’t take the p**s.
So, … Read the rest

Hearts

The ruptured structure,
Of our lives,
Denies,
The truth.
If you want proof,
A heart so broken
Can’t be put back together,
Unless someone,
Picks it up,
Walks with it,
Runs with it,
To fields of rapture.… Read the rest

The Ghost

Thoughts whisper,
Through his mind.
The air feels strange.
The room so quiet,
And so he stares.
Hacks around ideas,
He doesn’t like.
Pages on the floor,
Only fit for fire.
Takes another look.
Is there any pattern here?
Gets … Read the rest

Purity

You don’t get confused,
By the body of Christ,
And so I rise.
Three days,
Just to look at you,
I don’t want to lose.
I choose my moment,
So specifically,
I don’t judge.
Romance,
I will not comment.… Read the rest

Development Arrested

Development arrested,
But tested,
To the limit.
I could never be a man,
Just a child,
Inside.
Some women thought me handsome,
But the ransom,
Once paid,
Always brought rejection.
Overlaid,
With fear,
Self doubt.
My heart is open,
Tell … Read the rest

Sui Generis (Unique)

The facts,
I cannot take away.
Take you on a holiday.
We go bohemian,
For a while.
You say I am out of style,
But don’t detract from,
My smile.
I act like a child,
I know,
But it drives … Read the rest

Enough

Sordid details won’t go away.
Try to kill them,
But they stay.
You can’t run and hide,
They hunt you down.
You never lied.
I know you tried.
Now its all gone.
What of his poor son?
I will not … Read the rest

Standing Ground

Magnify, sanctify,
Hallowed be thy name.
Did you stand beside me,
As I looked for fame?
No one held my hand,
So I am just the same.
I came asking,
Now I take the shame.
You came looking for me,… Read the rest

Dancing With No One

Would you have me dancing with no one?
No communication, or emotion.
Beauty repeats like flowers in spring.
I have only one thing
In mind.
A kind expression,
And so it grows
From there.
Once the bareness
Of despair.
The … Read the rest

The Seed

She was more than lips and eyes,
A certain sadness perhaps I could repair,
But our exchange on the stair
Told of something else.
She didn’t need me.
Yes, she had a comic book beauty.
To want a woman so … Read the rest
