Poems – My Works of Heart

There are times my heart speaks for me, this is the place I keep its voice. – Ash

Young Summer

Send Me an Angel

I haven’t looked up in a while I did…last night you were there as promised with a smile that saved my day

you there?

Two lonely words… I’ve said them a few. They always stare back, when they’re meant for you.

Wilting Love

I held the prettiest flower this morning. It reminded me of you. Sadly, it too had been plucked from its roots.

Harboured Feelings

I had you for a while, then…I lost you to the sea. Alone in these narrows, until the day you return to me.  

Heart Attack

You broke my heart once more. But, it’s OK. At least it felt something.


You were already dead to me. But, I couldn’t stop my heart, when yours did.

Past Eight

Whistles silent, brews stress pinched to the nape. TV flickers black and white but can’t turn it off. Frozen mittens dry from the blessed heat, brings sweat with no one… Continue reading Past Eight

Forgotten Notes

Let me sing to you, my daughter, so I may make the strings of your heart, play music that’s in between.

Drown Me

I can no longer hold my breath. I rather drown, then wade in false hope. You’ve given me every emotion I’m capable of, I’ve fallen hard, so many times. How… Continue reading Drown Me

The Hook

Wonderwall plays the lazy afternoon. Rack em’ before the crowd shows. I can smell the night before from the Ashtrays. Stained carpets, humming I got used to. Friend by hello,… Continue reading The Hook

Like a Dream!

Your heart is like a dream. Once I awaken, everything disappears.

Fall Guy

Just because, I take a breath, leaf-peeping through autumn hues. Chilled zephyrs race tears down a single cheek, that dewy brisk, restorative. I wander along the many tints and tones,… Continue reading Fall Guy

Foggy Love

‘Blind must be the heart, when there is so much colour… all that’s seen is grey.’

Just One

Raindrops lost in a puddle, I have already lost track. A ray of light… just one.

My Rose

“Surrounded by you, my eyes open or closed. Thinking of you, lost petal, my rose. Hoping for you, to change what you’ve chose. Wishing for you, to love me like… Continue reading My Rose

Round Field

All I hear is the wind, the rain…slaps at me. My mind has frozen, but whitecaps still capture. To the bone and in drench, I see the window… where you’re… Continue reading Round Field


Because you changed your mind, all the happiness was stolen, shame your sword still lies deep where it hurts, taken its toll in years, ask me to my face…you bastard, remember… Continue reading Bastard

My Wounds

How do I awake from a nightmare, that cares not that I am asleep? My eyes need not even blink, for every second, the same dread. Taking my licks like… Continue reading My Wounds
