Category: Love & No Love


You go on track,

Trying to go faster,

Competing narratives.

Ask you

Will you last here?


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


Perhaps not a woman


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


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


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


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


I do not believe in god,

But I believe in you.

Do you believe in me?

Something of a reprobate.

Closest to Christ

You will ever see

Are all I have to offer.

When angels fall

They fall far.

No … 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

Part Of My Life

It’s part of my life;

Cannot be ignored.

I saw the sky open and followed a voice.

Not my choice, but had the feeling of inevitability.

Where would it lead me?

A cold finger touched my headline

And dread despair… Read the rest

Something Happened

Something happened

And I am head over heels

In love.

Quixotic, dramatic;

But always optimistic.

So I steal

The days

And don’t worry

About it.… 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


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

The Raven

Pretty girl

You looked at me

No idea what you see

Do you see the blame?

And the shame I feel?

Maybe less than half a man.

Never enough,

Looking for normality;

So I built

My own reality.

The raven … Read the rest

I Wish

Walking city streets

Late at night.

I can’t sleep,

The bed still made.


How we used to be;

The memories

Never fade.

Each corner I turn

Where recollections

Still burn,

I really should have stayed.

Back Yard Blues

I am in her back yard.
Not so vain.
Go into the mood.
It’s plain to see.
I am a discard,
A formality.
Whatever the pain
I have no regard.
I see his blushing tears
Weep over me.
He said

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

Nobody here but me.
There’s a figure
Swinging from a tree.
A trait of personality.
Not depressed,
So much to live for
But just could not see.
Where was he going.
Sowing the seeds
Gathered before.
What will he reap
Read the rest


We can’t liberate
Our feelings.
They cascade,
From love
To friendship.
When breathing
Feels like stealing
No lip service;
It’s a mandate.
Rise above.
Can’t get p****d
While doing this
Then it has no meaning.
If you do

Love is a sacrifice
For ever,
Doesn’t matter 
How clever
You are
There is only love.
Deny it
You can try it,
No one will buy it.
To love a woman ever
Is your life
You can’t destroy
Having a

A Song

Here’s a song,
Could be long,
I can’t borrow from tomorrow.
Feel the hand
Take away;
I just feel sorrow.
You were blessed,
Not caressed
Enough I know.
Oh yes,
I outlived my stay.
If true love ever happens

P**S OFF! [Daughter]

How dare you!
My own  daughter.
So petty minded
I have to close
This account.
Expect nothing more
Everything gets cancelled
As I shut the door
Now f**k off
Tell your mum
You are on your own.
How does that … Read the rest
