Because there is a girl

mood swings and weird feelings
I try to relax my jumping brain
but it is hard to think
what to say or do
to be what they want
but I want to be
more like me
whoever I am
I don’t know what to do
when I go to my room
where my heart flutters
but makes no sense
because there is a girl
staring into space
screaming to get out


Wild child

cotton shirt, bandanna, bare legs
pale face streaked with tears
of the rainbow country wild
streets of night wait quietly
to see her again, her madness
vibrating love for music
waiting for the laughter to come
and this time it will be forever

Eyes of love

Eyes of love wept
At the glance not intended
For the bedroom door
Had she dared
Touch her heart’s
Need for intimacy
Something dark

Somewhere there is love

Somewhere there is love
it burns when I get too close
so I watch it from afar
all those imperfections
come back to haunt me
in the morning mirror
in the dark of night

A drop of saline fluid

A drop of saline fluid – free from deception – lasts forever;
It won’t corrode your heart of copper alloy,
It won’t erode the monument erected in your memory;
You may go now, where each drop that falls dies.


I watch a sylvan love scene
playing out under the trees
while jealousy tears at my heart,
his hand on that soft cheek
that so easily let mine go,
leaving it sunburnt, arid,
where poetry and passion
now only cold, hard words;
instead of hymneal magic,
distorted colours fill my eyes,
clinging to a forlorn hope;
before that acid
ate through my heart
and left me bitter,
piercing deeper than my soul
could withstand, it crushed
the music within me;
all unravels, as I watch her,
once my lover
sitting in his lap,
the blade heavy in my hand.

Waves on a silent shore

Waves on a silent shore
Wash sad thoughts upon the sand
Of sorrow; a prayer composed
By nature, footprints reveal
Where we once walked –
But now there is silence.

Blue water swells on the shore,
Mermaid’s hair tossed over her shoulder,
Silken tresses, adorned with beauty,
Curl like ocean waves, longing
To kiss her soft cheek.

The breeze is gentle against her skin,
Diffuse thoughts float delicately,
Landing softly; beautiful maiden
Resting on the sand, crowned
With the blooms of a goddess,
Cheeks stroked with morning dew,
Swelling breasts tremble; once cherished
Lover, now begotten mistress
To the bridle of lust’s temptation.

Ghost of innocence

Ghost of innocence,
You took for your own
What I can never give again.

Farewell my love,
Saying goodbye is hard —
You meant everything to me,
I will never forget

Laying my head against your breast,
While you breathed words
Of sweet desire, I loved to hear
You singing the poems of Sappho,
Watching as you brushed your hair,
Slipping on a summer dress —
I loved the bright colours you wore,
Red lips, painted toenails,
Your sharp intelligence, witty tongue
That left me with shivers,
When you looked in my eyes,
Touching my hand gently,
Light reflecting from irises
As I lay mesmerised,
Intoxicated by the perfume
Of flowers against your soft neck,
How I met your craving
For burning desire
With my own tender sighs,
Succumbing to the beauty
Of moonlight on your skin,
Flower petals open
To relieve my frustrations,
Scattering violet, blue and yellow
Until only orange and red
Flash behind my eyes
In our exquisitely beautiful tryst,
Breathing affection against your breasts,
Yes desire — right there.

Then you kissed me goodbye,
Scalding my lips;
Everything is hazy
When I close my eyes
As I lay here alone.
My own heart is anguish
At your hot and cold;
I draw my arms
Across my chest
To remember your warmth —
If only I could look in those eyes
One more time.
