Love is a regular verb. That’s where its regularity ends, however.
Where is the refuge for lovers denied? Why do the liars prevail? Safe is the harbour of rotting remains Never again to set sail. Dry are the tongues from the spilling of tales Steep is the drinker’s descent Into the waters where dreams went to drown All of the treasure is spent.
Old excuses Tigers toothless Time moves ruthlessly on. Old excuses Blind and muted Find your truth and be gone.
I play my heart until it burns. I give my love with no returns.
She dances inside a dream With moving mirrors Posing Closing. She grasps at passing echoes With quivering hands Seizing Freezing. I forfeit my intentions With restless resign Holding Folding.
I recently entered a masturbation contest. The competition was stiff. I came...
Success seekers Cannot wait Success seekers Set a date Full ahead and Blinkers on Full ahead we Can’t go wrong. Success seekers Build a dream Success seekers Kick and scream When the world will Not obey When the world Designs delay.
Certainty is rarely more than a lazy, closed mind.
We strip down to silence When words fall short on feeling, To measure each expression; The least, the most revealing.
The flicker of the flame Restless thoughts in echoes fly Inside the picture frame A sordid smile deceives the eye.
We exist in a world of constant flux. We strive for security, when the only...
We pluck bright flowers from the soil To dress our lovers with a smile We need not kill, we need not spoil Just walk together for a while.
You are a butterfly. Avoid the catcher’s grasp. Rest on the open palms of...
The Grieving Magician
The grieving magician Conjures a memory Of the love he lost In the forest of fear. With a flick of his wand She sweetens the twilight Flirting with the moon Serenading the stars. Oh that he could once more Feel his heart surrender To her soothing spell.
Skin deep caress Weightless, shapeless Silence undressed Fake this, take this. Lust is a dream Shaken, taken Bound in a scream If now, what then?
An Earnest Engineer
We were not born with blinkers We were not forged in fear Imagination built us - An earnest engineer. We dressed the days with wonder And whisked the nights away To worlds of our creation Where dreams came out to play. No worries could distract us No voices could restrain Our hunger for adventure Our thirst for new terrain. We were not born with blinkers We were not forged in fear...
We all dress in one skin. One heart beats within.
Strangers walk among us Lost in the labyrinths of their minds Where thoughts beyond thinking Are ships slowly sinking And quietly so For the storm does not blow In the depths Of a blinding dark. Strangers steeped in shadows Immobilised by a blackened brain A world without seasons A realm beyond reasons To dream of a day when The pain will decay In the shallows Of shining light. ...
Dependency stains relationships. Self-sufficiency is natural and healthy, but it...
Sometimes I want to wrap this world in a blanket of compassion, dressing the...
Waves of Wisdom
Wisdom is a public good It cannot be possessed For private thoughts have equal share When openly expressed. The rolling tides of Reason Are ageless as the wind But only flood the channels of A chaste and gentle mind. Arise in waves of wonder Stay humble and be true Let silence stir the ocean And wisdom come to you.
Even when the relationship is a good one, love can be spoiled by attachment with...– Sogyal Rinpoche
Sandy skies in waning light Drown the day in desert night Weaving waves of creeping cloud Granting stars an ancient shroud.
Get on the property ladder, they say. Climb the ladder to success! It seems many...
Let us talk incessantly Until no words remain And actions serve expressions Too carnal to contain.
A smile is a flicker Of a flash Of a spark That flies To the dark of a mind Re-designed To ignite Fresh eyes.
If you would love me Without needing Show me Without leading Stay true Within Reason Run free Within Season Let go Without weeping Chase dreams Without sleeping… We might trade the ocean for sky Ignite every flame we defy.
