The Reset Button

The Reset Button

So many guises in our years, Whose to say when it all becomes clear. Signing forms and forming smiles, All the while it still reviles. One door opens; another closes. I press reset for my mind’s repose. And begin again with a fresh slate. A new chapter, A new challenge (they say). The thirst for...
Blue Lights ‘til Sunrise

Blue Lights ‘til Sunrise

  Ominous sounds ring around As the city pounds the street (There are mouths to feed)   Harbingers of mortality, distract banality Of weekday repetition (we daren’t make the admission)   A regular sight, from morning light Blurring beacons with night skies Wailing sirens provide the cries   A dying youth, a drug-fuelled plight More...
I Smile at Mirrors

I Smile at Mirrors

  (Dedicated to my Mother)   The scent of your perfume fades from memory Until a stranger passes by, then I smile Closing my eyes to remember your face As I breathe in deeply   I stare at stories in the dark Illuminating the empty seat beside me But I smile widely at the screen...
Long & Lost Family

Long & Lost Family

I gaze at the memories forming before me (which happens quite frequently) It’s no less lovingly Fleeting moments that I never let pass by   I ingrain your habits in my mind Although they rile me I turn my eyes blindly Because they make you smile (if only for a little while)   Only visits...
Gender-Based Woes

Gender-Based Woes

  We gloat in our tribes As though superior Judging the exterior (But this makes us inferior)   It is curious to see So much animosity But we create this Not trying to placate this   These gender-based woes Cloud our souls Searching for What? A fantasy of expectations Lessen the relations We perpetually seek...
LISBOA

LISBOA

  Your children departed briefly Only to return swiftly Enticing me with their journey of smiles So much affinity Though we never met Yet And then we drank in the skies With each other’s eyes In contemplative adoration Of this feeling of elation   My feet tread upon your cobbled stones Ears bending toward the...
No Questions to Ponder

No Questions to Ponder

  There is something serene In the gleam of your eye it calms the internal chaos   No more questions to ponder as I only grow fonder of a now, somewhat altered status   As I drown in your lips Hands pressed close on my hips swaying gently in sync to our hearts   Matching...

Wednesday’s Child

A melancholia haunts me As I savour days gone by I blame the inner workings Of a mind that cannot lie   To myself or any others both a blessing and a curse Striving to rid myself of shadows It seems enlightenment’s just worse   A perpetual smile saves me As it masks the internal...

A Transparent Heart

The hindsight of the past Illuminate question marks in future Thoughts tumble through my mind Some unkind (Though thankfully fewer)   These day to day wanderings Never follow a simple path Always taking a more difficult route A harsher commute But incurring no wrath   Small moments gain my attention I need this impact to...

Cold Heart Warmed by Daylight

The dawn air swirls like mist from the lips of frozen maidens with romantic stares An Arctic morning brings such beauty Sullied only by youth with ignorant stares   The smiles become a grimace To protect the hearth inside But my heart is warmed by daylight the frost not matching the cold of mind  ...

To Heal and Damage

A cycle of turmoil that repeats Yet completes It is strangely fulfilling (although quietly killing) all manner of wisdom I accumulate through learning it still leaves a yearning   The path to true clarity  so full of disparity between logic and emotional thought I get caught such mortal torment is typically fraught   With a constant...

Fairweather Love

  The smiles seem only forecast When the sun creeps behind the clouds A cue for our union is then allowed   So starry-eyed and blissful Our laughter sprinkles the air and all those around that stand and stare   For every moment our eyes meet I wait for your presence to disappear so far...
