If I could summarise

 
it was
unrehearsed

a missed
pedal slipping
under foot.

Just dropped by
to say hey
one last time

tell you
it was
wasted
breath

an
afterbirth

a bitter
desert song.

twinkles of stars like eyes
in the skies
reminds me of misted eyes
silent goodbyes
all said in the mundane
days before...
side steps into the parrarel
and it is sunshine again
and there we are

itch

 
 
scratching
black blood
into virgin
sheets
 
blending
out peace  
in different
shades

200x's of attempting a soul cleansing


a milestone?
perhaps not for some
for myself?
I crawl on my belly
across this finish line
bruised, bloody
and brilliantly battle worn
cramped fingers—
stained inky
parchment still wet
as final words silently echo
and salted tears
of pure unabashed emotion
ripped from the darkness
of once buried
now tumble free
sliding down a pale cheek

escaping
into




a brand new existence.

You said our words don’t belong to us

  
on tombstones
they are all
we’ll have left

an ethereal submission

Something called loss

 
Can it be defined anymore
in the midst of old boats
clinging to crumbling harbours

that laughs
at the irony
of life jackets.

A compass flits
in all four directions

it isn’t broken
just measuring
how water floods

and I feel it—

I feel it holding
this fragile shell
decaying in
its own rot

that calls out
Mother, Mother
to ragged sails

I’m coming home.

shifting sands
I can't build castles anymore
the turrets don't look right
the moat is filling up
no I can't
not anymore
I'm looking up to the stars

an excerpt from a bipolar sufferer.

 



oceans don't apologise to shores
after touching them—

i don't
either.

Inopportune inspiration


it's when I'm busiest
or most unobtainable
that I feel the pull
of images or ideas
bombarding
perfect lines
or lightning-strike phrases
thoughts that need capturing
flirting in momentary genius
spectacular in all that's coveted
yet, only to self impress
of that moment in rare unique
a peek of lost wonder
glimmering in pure possibility
especially as it slips away,
to flee upon the winds  
of lost inspiration
with only
a shadow remaining.

forever speaking my mind
when necessary

a vanquish of dark with your certain light.


Theirs, is a rarity
born of an unwavering likeness
recognized by words
which morphed into
their shared religion
spoken to each other
in verse, haiku or prose
yet always
with a depth of truest affinity
conversations of a lifetime
done, by way of stanza
rolling lovingly into stanza
words that unite
their understandings
reassuring minds, bodies and souls
that loneliness,
now foreign
would forever be



unknown.
