• Butterfly Kisses

    Arousing from sleep Too sweet are your kisses  A butterfly caressSweeping gently across my cheekTrying to seek my heart Slowly aware of youI breathe you in Our breath interminglesWe are oneMy child, my love, my boy ❤️

  • The Pink Room

    Rosie stands in her bedroom and marvels at the pinkness of it all. It’s oozing pink. The girlie-ness of it all overwhelms her. The fabric of the curtains remind her of dandelions in the wind and the golden lining sparkles in the sun.Looking around the excitement of where to place her things is almost too much. Underfoot her carpet feels like soft sand and the warmth of the walls envelope her like a cloud. ...

    Like the blossomFrom the pink cherryYou bloom High in the sky Reach for the moon Your soul searching for itself  You'll find it thereHidden by the sun Waiting for you Take her hand And lead her to you  Real beauty often doesn't last.

  • For You

    My fragile part brokeAs my heart caved I’d poured my heart into youBut you drank itSaving it for others LeftMute,numbMy soul deserted me Alone with no value ..........  My jigsaw landscape Could be pieced together It would be my beach retreat A place for me to blossom I resolved to find myselfAnd give her the loveI have in abundance She made me laugh againShe made me cry A stronger outer shellBut my fragile part still craved He walked in when I was ready ........

    Looking backI see myselfLooking in Looking in too farI’ve lost myself Need to tear myself apartTo remouldAnd rearrange Put me back togetherRe-piece who I seeWhat she means To me Make me completeSo I can competeOn the same level As you No mask neededIn a war With oneself No need to heedWhat we’re told we needIn this game Of to and fro Let it go.

    An envelopeYou two areAs you protect and link InsideYou overlap and divergeSpilling your memoriesAnd merging onwards You close it sometimesCarefullyNever tear it You retrieve each other back ......... I open itAnd I see a pullIt presses you togetherAs it should be Your envelopeIs sealed nowNo destination needed It’s freeIt’s free for it’s journey ...........

    You seemed like someone I’d likeBut as you silently watched meYou looked straight through me You saw beneath my enthusiasmInstantlyTo the uncertainty below I thought I’d entertain youThought I’d win you overBut you knew more than that You smiled with meMade me feel part of your groupBut your eyes told meA different story  You weren’t there to scold meYou had solidityYou weren’t there to judgeYou just watchedAbsorbedMaybe a protector Eventually I was silencedNo leap neededA quiet road began I was rightI like ...

    They took her in and she whispered to them "I think I'm God". She’s having to whisper cause the only other person she told seemed freaked out - she’s not sure why. She’s been holding this in for so long - she could burst - thank god it's out now - what a relief - they can all move forward - it's great - after a wee rest they can ...

    Circled by confusion Dissolving water, earth and fireIts higher than the airA process of engulfingThis ameobaIs enlargingAs it sticksTo what it's searching for A state of what is notIn a place where it must beSo to outer space I place it Castaway from the here and nowTo take me from the lightAn interplanetary trip An envelope of cosmic rays Surrounded by this unityA merging of solidity Atomical transfer - mystery To outer space I'm placed A barren landscape lies untouchedAs a cry of fear ...

    Dark Horses  In the warm light of dayDark horses run freeHaving no need to be heeded A freedom exudesBut a stampede is haltedAs they glide to a common goal A string of beautyWith pearls of wisdom A weave of loveSent from above Ideas being formedEntwining like danceEnticing each other to play They merge together Like a river flows Setting dominoes offon a path no one knows...........
