Quiet Ones

Quiet souls observe the sounds that ears do not allow.
They often know what’s being said
Behind all things said out loud…
By listening to the corners of a smile,
And to the style of words,
Through speech and diction –
Decipher lies and catch
glimpses of the truth.

Old Faith

I was born asleep
into the land of sheep,
Where God was King and
E V E R Y T H I N G
was in His Holy keep.

I was told of his forgiveness,
yet reminded I was vicious;

Born with sin, and next of kin
to the wrongs of the malicious.

After Hours

At sixes and sevens,
At eight and at nine…
See you close to midnight.
Quick fixes and heaven,
It’s late, we don’t mind.
We’re lonely, so we go for a ride.

When night starts to creep,
It’s the hour to haunt.
The living’s asleep,
They don’t know of our jaunts.
We meet under streetlights
By roads like a tomb
And practise our secret knocks
For secret rooms.

Dark Is The Night

Dark is the night
for the eyes that don’t glow.
In the absence of light,
all you have is your soul.
If it’s hopeless,
then daybreak
is too far away.
If there’s hope,
you’ll know morning
will come anyway.

Strawberry Waves & A Red Painted Smile

“What can you see
When you think of me older
Will I grow colder, will I be wild?”
I can see you my dear,
As clear as a crystal,
With strawberry waves
And a red painted smile.

 
You said it sounded
Like a beautiful dream.
I can see you as fiery
As the wings of a seraphim –

Strawberry waves
and a painted red smile
Coffee past midnight,
impeccable style.

For You.

Ask some folks
to tell you what they hate
about yourself, and you could get
a list so long, its heavy weight
could leave you deaf,
and numb and blind
to all the good you
want to find
within your soul
before you’re old… 

But
never mind
their words.
It all depends
on who you’re asking.

All Of It, Fireworks

I don’t need heaven.
This world is enough.
Some say everything here was made just for us…

A Fearsome Thing

I raged like a bear in a cage
With my brain like a warplane,
Heart like the devil in chains…

S P E A K

Speak to me the words that I crave
as much as rain after a heatwave.
Tell me I’m strong, remind me I’m brave,
Speak to me tender, so I don’t cave.

Writer’s block

Writing books are staring
blankly up at me.
I get it man, you’re empty.
Give me time, and I will fill you up with something beautiful.

H E R M A N A

You’ve got a secret smile
While I’ve got a secret mind.
You’re steady as a tree
And I crash just like the sea.
Through storms and brighter days
And our everchanging ways –
In every step of the way, I find
I’ve got all of you.

My Heart Is My Home

I don’t have a heart
That yearns to be conquered.
Unless it’s a prize,
Nobody can “win it”.
