ShallowBarely hereA ripple in the water.My heart whispers to yoursIts dirty little secretIn words left unspoken. Too clear.Too near.To the core, to the centre,To the goddamn middleOf the soul that resides here. FaintBarely thereA sigh on the windMy hand reaches for yoursScared of a secretThat might leave me broken.
When I say it is different..When I say it is new..When I say pasts are over…Will you see my words true?Because I know that I mean them..Because I know that they’re real…Because I know they say much less…Than what I really feel..But will you allow me to be scared…And will you allow me to wait…ForContinue reading “New”
You built me a bench onceWood as black as my soulIt used to remind meOf a time I was whole. It fell right apart thoughStraight from the startAnd seeing it in piecesWas ever so hard Until I suddenly realizedThat like you and meThis bench in my gardenWas never meant to be. With pieces that crumbleThatContinue reading “Purpose”
Honeyed lies drank from poisoned lipsLaid my careful plans to wasteThose empty words and hidden bitesAte me up insideYet I’m still craving a taste. Because all we really seem to wantIs what might kill us fastest.Consumed by our needsFor the food of our detriment And a sip of the deadliest drinkFilling up on love. IContinue reading “Bitter tastes”
Facing the abyss Stare into icecream pints Rocky road bottom And as a simple haiku may show – sometimes you’ll just know when you hit it. Hard, undeniably and unavoidably. There’s some destinies one may not escape. It might be mine to set the new world record for sheer amount of Ben and Jerries ingested.Continue reading “When you know.”
I could spell it out for youBut my words, they hold no meaningFalling on deaf ears,Resting on mute tongues,Fading in deafening silenceAnd would they ever be enough? I would spell it out for youBut my words, they hold no swayOver a focused mindAnd poignant emotionsHastily felt, easily discardedAnd probably never enough. I should spell itContinue reading “Lost words”
When the world goes topsy turvyYou just turn yourself aroundAnd find the upside down wayTo keep your feet on solid ground. Find the balanceFind the meanFind the middleUntil you find yourselfFirmly in the center. It’s just a matter of perspective You need only find what you want to seeAnd then all of a suddenIt’s easierContinue reading “Topsy Turvy”
It’s when I stopped looking For you….All the time,Every time,That I found the time. No more staring at the driveway,Or just glancing at the door,Waiting,Knowing you won’t come around no more.No more staring at my phone,Or looking for your name, on the list of who read what where,Waiting,Knowing you’re no longer there. It’s when IContinue reading “Puzzled”
A blanket of snow Covering a broken heart Won’t make it colder. Wait just a second Did I really just write A legit haiku? Yes. Yes, YES I did About love, as usual Guess I AM a poet.
‘It’s ok.’They tell me.‘You were just brainwashed,by him and the scene he painted.’ And I’ll smile a crooked smileAsking them ‘what brain?’‘I lost that way before him.’‘I’ve always been out of my mind.’ ‘It’s the heart that he stole.’‘And the love that he took,that now leave me feeling empty.’ It’s when their helpful eyes hardenIt’sContinue reading “Crooked smile”
