Moulting 

Leave a comment

I shed the skin
of responsibility
and stretch

Arms above
my head
face raised
to sunny skies

lips lift
eyes light
and the pressure
starts to slip
away

where I hope
it remains
lost

Eddy and flow of you

Leave a comment

The river flows
takes my thoughts
of you

Rushes down
currents
so sensually

Caressingly along
every high
until the lows

Reaches along
the edges
Eddies and slows

Comes to blows
with insecurities
and sighs

until these lie
on the bank
of my mind
over thought and
undermined

Waiting for me
to wake up
and push them
back into the flow

Back to belter
images
of mingling streams

with reams
and reams
of steamy
things

If the world stopped

Leave a comment

in the end
the world stopped
And I felt
sick

Not from the spinning
or the changing

But the emptiness
left
In the pit
of my stomach

where your kisses
left a mark
on my soul

States of being

Leave a comment

Slipping through
The surface
Of consciousness

Between dreams
Where we laugh
So much
Our cheeks
Hurt

And reality
Where I wake up
With a pillow
Wet
From my tears

Speak to me

Leave a comment

With very tips
Of fingers
Brushed

So softly
Across cheek
Feeling weak

From fatigue
Craving attention
Comfort seeks

Speaks volumes
Where words
Aren’t required

Just soft touches
Fill volumes
Of need

Plant the seed
Of wishes
Pressed gently

Against foreheads
To feed where
Daydreams lead

Wasting kindness

Leave a comment

Broken shards
Of ceramic
Where once

My faith
In basic human
Kindness
Lay about me

Images
Of bright paint
And happy smiles

Turned to spite
For no reason
Than
The kindness
Behind the gesture

Hate
Hiding behind
“Perception”

Shapes in the clouds 

Leave a comment

From the ashes
Into a summer
Sunset

Disguised
As cloud

A Phoenix rises
Stretches
And circles

Leaving trails
Down warm cheeks

From the utter
Beauty
Of it all
