Out of Sight, Out of Mind

Out of sight on a blue blue night. Out of mind? No, you’re intertwined. Out of sight these feelings I fight, out of mind It’s you I can’t find. Out of sight in the failure of light, out of mind it’s a turning world’s grind. Nadine you’re out of my sight, Nadine, I’m out of […]

No Room

TRUMPETS WILL BLAST, ANNOUNCING CHRISTMAS AT LAST, NOT THE ANCIENT MASS OF CHRIST, COVETNESS, BRIBERY, RESOUNDS THE NEW TRUMPET, REPEATING THEIR EVERLASTING SOUND. USHERING IN PROMISES OF HOPE, FELICITATIONS, THE ORIGINAL PROCLAMATION. NOW WRAPPED IN TINSEL, THE GOODNEWS, GLITTERS, SHIMMERS, GLOWS, FLICKERS, DISGUISES THE MESSAGE AS ANGELIC LIGHT. BELLS RING FROM THE BELFRY TIDINGS OF […]

…. Alpha and Omega the beginning and the end, Where did it begin and where will it end? The voice that spoke, ‘Let there be light’ from chaos, void, where the spirit brooded, rang throughout the universe. An instrument of the divines’ voice, Tis music to those with ears to hear. Cockles and bells on […]

Eternity waits.

She woke to find him dead, Her mind went blank, Time ceased, Shocked, Cold, She stood, Eyes wide, Looking at the lifeless body, Cold and forever still. The air rings with the silent question, Why? There are no answers, None that mend or satisfy, Destiny’s seed Snuffed out, Never known, The joy of relationship, The […]

Flickers of Light

To roam those miles in your eyes, Through the lands of your devouring orchids, Covered by lavender and purple orchids, Your garden hides your daughters, A bloodline of high priestess sovereignty, You choose the path you take, Your rights to status marks your best choices, The flickers of light behind each eyelid, My heart thumps […]

Just an Old Fashioned love Song

I’m just an old-fashioned love song, There’s nothing extraordinary about me, I believe in Jesus, Marriage, Children, My neighbour. In today’s world, Where faith is jeered, Marriage is scorned, Children are considered annoyances, I walk out of step, The song I sing is quiet Yet strong, To thy own self-be true, It’s hard to live […]

Tick tock …Tick tock

Tick tock, Tick tock, Tick tock, Time resounds in my ears, I stand on foreign soil, A barren plain looms before me, The splendour of my body dims, I question my womanliness, I spend many hours Analyzing the worth, The value, Of my life. Tick tock, Tick tock, Tick tock, Time, Vicious robber, It lessens […]

Why do deny me?

Why do deny me? When i give you so much pleasure’ you know I satisfy you at your leisure I am just a whore I am just an angel waiting to be fed at your humble table You tease me with your fruit You feed me with your words You mock me mercilessly with your […]

Inkedover

The homeless, we will term them, jackal vultures, circle the nest of notes and coins. Their dissuading odour and unmatched taste off-put potential tippers. If I chuck at them a few coins they bug me even more. One time, when I complained I said to myself they’ve only begging or burglary or buskers. These junkies, […]

7 Well, Jim, you’re dead, you know you are the only one who’s left behind a myth past the valour of his verse. A plinth has been erected, above a sewer, because poets translate muck back into water. The myth holds you versified in youth; I hated writing, couldn’t match my thought, speech likewise, stutters, […]

from Übermanis Geniac

3 Two nights earlier, at home in admiration of my gymness, I had begun to labour on the colours I was going to travel in; blue-grey, acrylic-practical, at first, but, finally, settled on turquoise in heavy cotton hood, a silver zipper, for the feeling of it: light and strong beneath my eyes. The ring was […]

Hello Friend

  Playing my old guitar , Old days like dead stars, falling apart Memories hold me back, they’re trying to Steal my dreams away I’ve never seen such a lonely heart, making my six string Rot and stale. A broken guitar Broken from inside and outside I can hear the screams of pain that has […]
