Love AcrossIf all you've got
Is a pen and paper
An email service
Or instant messenger
And all you want
Is to love somebody
Far far away
Far far away
All you need
Is to express those feelings
Share those thoughts
Help them see
Your love across oceans
Love across nations
Love across stations
As a possibility
Beneath These Murky WatersA burnt wasteland
Glistens before me
My head above
Two feet below
I inch forward
The landscape shifts
The landscape shifts
Now every step
An obscure risk
These murky waters
While The Dust SettlesThere is always a trial
When dust takes flight
The common man's plight
For parched are the lips
And stale is the bread
And faint is the voice
With which secrets are shared
There's nothing like idleness
To make a tongue wag
Till nought is a mystery
And all is commotion
While the dust settles.
Today you mock me,
Staring at me in a grey demeanour
Pelting my frame with your stones
Today you honour me,
Showering me in a wet confetti
Laughing and crying like a drain
Today you comfort me,
Soothing me gently with easy breezes
Lulling me gently to sleep
Today you berate me,
Stormy and wild as they come
Howling your passionate fury
Someday you'll leave me
Taking your whims to some other lad
Leaving me uncertain;
Heart BurstI have gone and come so many times
The fun is gone like sound from mimes
Wind from chimes,
And rhyme from rhymes
For love is not about
Or climaxing at
The question becomes what comes next?
An angry text?
An empty bed to find no rest?
If none of these appeal, then first
Search for one who makes your heart burst.
Like a CocktailWrite me a cocktail
Make it nice and strong
Help me to forget
How my life has gone wrong
Put it in a shaker
Shake it up good
Yes, I'll have that on the rocks
'Cause life is never smooth
Now pour it out gently
Don't spill a drop
I need to savour every moment
And every plop
For like a cocktail
Life is mixed up
And I want to believe
That at the end, I'll take a sip
Raise my glass
And I'll be pleased.
Sometimes...Sometimes, a heart must be broken.
Sometimes, harsh words must be spoken.
Sometimes, from dreams we are woken
To find life's not a-jokin'.
Sometimes, our choices are bad.
Sometimes, we lose what we had.
Sometimes, while we are sad
We forget how to be glad
Yet sometimes, after we've fussed
Sometimes, despite the cost
Sometimes, even when lost
We find solace and trust
And sometimes, grey skies do turn blue
Sometimes, we can start anew
Sometimes, our dreams will come true
Yes.. sometimes, even for you
So when there are signs
That you've come on hard times
Hold these words in your minds
Because sometimes... sometimes...
Happy Howloween!In fevered pitch
I groan and twitch
As pain bestrides
My body's width
With maw outstretched
I yowl and wretch
A grizzly sight
A sickening stench
Then burning rage,
My mind: deranged!
The final stage;
A beastly being
A moonlit scene...
Say, what am I,
Easter, 2014I rose from bed this morning
expecting of the day,
a dreary-eyed wondering
of all that comes my way.
I'm lifted from my sleeping,
and woken from my dreams,
walking through the open roads
in sunlight and moonbeams.
I live again in promise,
another day to face,
another way to live this life,
to yearn and smell and taste.
Resurrected in the light
of everything I've learned,
I'm breathing in my second chance,
reborn again, returned!
All I NeedI need Your mighty hand
For the seasons seem to be off
Winter wants to stay on this land
And Spring comes whenever he pleases
Though I need not Spring to be happy
Winter may stay forever
But Your warmth is all I need exactly
For I will never grow cold
Come to the TreeCome to the Well, to the Well at the Tree
Come and look deep in its waters, said He
And I'll drink with you if you'll drink it with me
And the more you drink of it, the more you will see.
One cup for the price all who drink here must pay:
Once you start to see, there's no turning away.
What's seen can't be unseen; the images stay
At the back of your eyelids by night and by day.
One cup for confusion, the choices you make,
Seeing all of the forks in the road you may take;
Always aware of how much is at stake
On the path that you choose, and the ones you forsake.
One cup for the burden of knowing too much,
No longer with blissful nescience as crutch;
One cup for the loss of the common man's touch,
Set apart by the vision you clutch.
One cup for the thirst that grows as you drink,
One thought needs the next as a link needs a link.
One cup for desire, to step on the brink
As the water wells upward, and let yourself sink.
One cup for ecstasy, rapture of sight,
Grasping the World in a swirl
Arise!I can feel the coldness in thy veins
Thou art dead, yet alive
Put in death’s foul bane
Tears wail for thy afflicted body
Well weep no more
I have brought life to thee
Thou wilt no longer snore
Arise, and shout in glee
Upon the WatersThe tears that drip from my repentant eye
Are waves that crash upon the rugged shore
That is my past, my pride, my every lie
I clung to, wreckage from my dark before,
Relentless as the sound of weeping swells,
And deep as one could dive in pain and woe,
Their brimming is dimming all the haze of hells
I plunged in headfirst not too long ago.
And all my lungs were filled with water black,
That seized my body into dying throes:
No heroes there to pull my spirit back,
No feelings anymore. My body froze
Beneath the surface. My suicide.
I died. I'm dead. No way ahead but dread,
No floating on the waters of the tide,
I died, and nothing--nothing lies ahead.
But in death's stead, I found a life ahead
That rose up from the waters of the tide.
So great it was, I trembled in my dread
For I was dead and drowned in suicide.
In fear and tears, it was my doubt that froze
First, and then there was no turning back;
The Spirit shook me into living throes
As I confessed the deeds of this heart black.
HatingMy chest is on fire
Every time that I breathe in.
My lips have made me a liar;
Though lying is a sin.
At night I can't contain
My mourning erie cries.
And although I try to refrain,
Water falls from my eyes.
My mind is sometimes blue,
And my mind is sometimes grey,
So many things to tell you,
My voice won't let me say.
Some times I wish I'd let go of
This memory that keeps me reeling,
'Cause to hate something you used to love
Is such a painful feeling.
Risky GiftThe love you cannot earn
Is the love that you don't want
Because you can't control
Whether you deserve it or not
The relief it would bring
Is not worth the cost
In helpless pain and agony
If one day it were lost
How long will you hurt
Before you look up above
To swallow your pride
And trust in His love
THE KNIGHT IN BLACKTHE KNIGHT IN BLACK
Fantasies tell only whispers,
though his name still lingers.
Many recall this legend,
and I can feel his presence
Riding to claim his reward.
Wind rushes by,
and a determined look in his eye.
On a quest in search of one thing,
no longer controlled by the king.
He rides for the broken,
knowing their wounds are open.
He rides for us,
always creating a fuss.
for a fight to create.
Finally able to attack
because the Knight in black,
NaPo XIII. Epistle: To LoveDear Love,
I sought you more than most
And you became my end.
Perhaps you are obscure,
Perhaps you twist and bend
Much more than I would like,
Much more than life requires.
Come back and sweetly stir
The candles into fires.
My first I have forgotten
My last is yet the same.
The day-to-day unveiling
Of all done in your name
Leaves me the fool, the guarded.
Oh love, you do not boast.
You wait and watch my progress
For I need you more than most.
Until He ComesThe second coming
Is not a warning
To dwell upon
Until His coming
Shall we be waiting?
Our Lord's return!?
Our task is given!
It has been written!
We have a mission!
That must be done!
To shine our light
Make the world bright
Present this sight
As his welcome
For when Christ cometh
Though no man knoweth
In faith we soweth
We faithful ones
Think not of when
Think not of where
We must prepare
Until He comes
