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

you there?

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

Salty Secret

Where were the tears that day? Our loss must have voided my heart. Each time I taunted with emotion, my soul would squeeze even tighter. Then, past a wet wind’s […]

Safe Place

My throne upon wet stones. Waves crashing making me get lost. Howls of violence outside stop me dead in almost silence. No one would follow me to where I could […]

Last Call From Beyond

There was an alone never felt before. The night giving way to the morning. I watched the mist dance. Skin crawling from a day’s long. As I sat paralyzed thinking […]

Grave Turn

I’ll stand that day, at the foot of your grave. Just past the last of those who cared. My presence will be for a moment, give a second for each […]

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.  

For That Moment

I sat one day. Alone, on a palette chair. Sit in spatters and their quiet stories. Did watch as pebbles danced in entertain. For granted, I was easily led. So […]

Heart Attack

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

Kin

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

Tainted Blood

A lonely peer, a doorway. Most still lay asleep. Strangers, cloaked as lovers. Lineup…for the rabbit hole. Their smiles, fake, and you know it. Will, did not lead them here. […]

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 […]

Forgotten Notes

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

The Red Road

I walked a path less travelled, on a road covered in red. Evergreens bowed before me, to welcome back an old soul. Draped, lonely…in silence. A still that became my […]

That Song

I remember that song. Every note just for me. Sweet melody, aimed straight toward my heart. Our souls in tandem with the music. I’d bathe in the cast of your […]

Lonely Heart

It barely even beats. Doesn’t matter though, now. Given this heart… only to stare at strangers, thinking that for a life’s blink, that stranger could have been you. I tired […]

No One Cares About Superman

I’ve saved the day…so many. With a cape that’s now tattered and torn. Bullets are starting to pierce me, with an ego that’s badly worn. I do not wear any […]

Dark Fantasy

Oh, beautiful moon, why do you tease me? With fantasy, I know is not real. Darkness always has another plan for me, where light can never celebrate. I dare not […]

Whispers From You

A lull from the hillside early morn, like a whisper from you. I stood in the chill… …with a tear reminder, of what I’ve lost. Sweep me up, walk with […]

Come To Me Again

If my trial has ended, why do your stones still lay at my feet? My deepest wounds will never heal until their forgotten. No, always they fester, they ache, like […]

A Mermaid’s Lullaby

A hill where a mermaid danced, lay marked by a single stone. Tales left to imagine, on the night’s when the harbour’s alone. The land once rose above her, to […]

I Can Tell its Home!

Grant me that yesterday tomorrow. I want to run again in November rain. Taste once more, those raindrops. Pinch me because I’m alive. Let me feel it to the bone, […]

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 […]

Moonlight to Morning

I remember nights that seemed only for me. Everything still, silent…time fixed. I sat by shore, lost in its wake. Watched as mossy moorings danced in captivate. The moonlight stretched […]

A Ways From Anywhere

Wintery winds howl, calling a bluff. The sky’s story turns dark, when only halfway. Each of my breaths, more and more breath. They followed in dance, but leave me too. […]

Mask of Deceit

Your smile must have been a mask, that allowed you to deceive the unsuspecting. As the cold steel cuts through my flesh, I wonder if it was I, who handed […]

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, […]

My Redemption

My memory is all I have to adore you. A broken heart still bleeding for attention. Before the picture fades, I pray for a lost connection. My fault bears a […]

My Misery

Why can’t I smile and mean it anymore? Is it because of my friend, dear Misery? But, I’ve known her now, more than anyone of flesh. She whispers constantly in […]

Like a Dream!

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

The Brothers

Eight tracks and underage, hard rock for the teenage, one summer eve, surrounded by kings. They rolled their tokes, shared loose smokes, and bragged, of sweetheart flings. I watched all […]

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, […]

One Day in May!

One day in May,will forever be.When a gift was born,and bestowed upon me. One day in May,as flowers grew.Love, true love,that first look at you. One day in May,20 years […]

Still Searching for My Sunset

‘Every morn…I look up for a brighter sun, to cast away clouds that still pursue me. Told that time will move them forward, patience should be a friend. Though, all […]

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.

Until I See You

 Until…I see you, my heart will save your place. I’ll gather the missing beats, store them just in case. Until I see you, my love is forced to pace. Until […]

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 […]

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 […]

Bastard

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 […]

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 […]

In the Stars

This is not who I want to be anymore, someone with his eyes fixed to the ground, distracted, wondering, wanting…wishing. A glimpse of hope for this cancerous heart, lied buried […]

As You Wish

I will concede to your wishes, we’ll leave the rest to chance. There’s nothing left to take hold, time to sever the branch. Poisoned are the seeds, laced within the […]

You and I

What have I done but love you? I’m not an enemy to your soul. Covetous hearts created this divide, while coddling indifference. They scattered us, you and I, like pieces, […]

I Can See You Again

I could not hold my breath any longer, your back to me that day. I expected so many things until, until that moment when you turned, to shed a tear […]

Reaching…

I’ve done what I have promised against. The cross I bear weighs heavy with fault. I’m sentenced to wander, hopeless and trapped in self-pity, with only regret to keep me […]

Tibbs

By the rickety rim, farewell till the morrow. Moonlit, as stones were kicked. Our colloquies went on. Foolish I, you… the antics, ne’er be by flesh more longer, but by […]

Am I still?

Am I still… a string of your heart? Or does it lie frayed, too torn apart. Seasoned now, but still we’re broken, enough has always been, left unspoken. See my […]

We were the Warriors

Indolent Saturdays poking things with sticks. We ran the back hills of our home. Three soldier foray, we flanked…pretending. Skinned knees and eye pokes, no bother, as we’d rather dare […]

Disturbed

Ululating beasts disturb the rem of my fantasy.I lie cowering from the tap, tap, tapping.Scads of hurt chase sweet dreams into nightmares…just this time don’t awaken me.

Weathered

A haloed nimbus, like a surge, it comes on without forecast. Emotions raw, cold, the flashes like lightning. Still I have neither a hand to squeeze, nor an ear to […]

For a Spell

Quotidian stories they share, sitting shoulder to shoulder. Those confabulating chaps with their doddery routine, fidget on a bench of stone. Each muster for a spell, hoary old fellows chinwag […]

The Rain Made Me Do It

I surveil the abstract of rain drops as they slither the outside pane, it’s journey, merely a moment in time. Each tiny drop, they dazzle like fireworks synchronizing with my […]

For Granted

Blare my name, call me to the table, wake me up early… just one more time…

The Torment

Again, I lie awake, assuaged by the stillness of night, a clock ticking, then tocking, slowly teasing me with dawn. Soon the fringe of daylight will edge toward tomorrow, exposing […]
