Heartspeaks

Dear Soul,
you left today
without packing your bags
I was still sleeping
a string of beads fallen besides my bed

here in this realm
among those who love you...
there was a stillness
and my poems spoke in hushed whispers

on this twelfth month
...I think of golden dusts
floating around in the valley
and bright reflections of the sky on cool lakes
I am thinking of rain on glass windows
and water-bore in waterfalls
the sunbeams in the morning
of sunflowers and roses
I think of unfinished poems and promised collaborations
I think of your voice

I'm thinking so many things

Soul,
the poems you left us are mementos from your heart
and I will tend your flame  in my heart until I too reach the stars
...today will pass
and so will I
but our hearts and souls essence will live on in our poetry.
*tumodo kono koupusanku, Nung koguli timpu nga sundung tu oruhai...gopuson ku no tinan nu om potodoon Ku no ikau kumaa I'd libabou*
*Farewell my love, if I could turn back time, your journey to heaven would start after my embrace*

breathe, fly, bloom, destroy

 
Do you remember
coffee-soft mornings;
warm sheets of paper
stained with porch light
 
the careless arrival
of Virginia rain ruining
frequent strolls of moss
 
how the forest still
knows you; still shakes
with your roll of laughter
howling through the green.
 
Did you listen  
when I asked you
by the river  
if you were proudó
 
if Iím the person  
you thought Iíd be
without the spark
I lost, long  
gone.  
 
Today
my friend,
Iíll love you  
like I mean itó
 
love you  
in the blackness
of closed lashes
and falling stars
 
for part of me
doesnít know how  
to say goodbye
 
part of you,
Iím sure,
never will.

"To question...to pick up any grain that feels to the self as truth-eternal learning- That is what I hope for" -Souladaretease   2014

you were
a fabulous caterpillar
so it's easy to imagine
the kind of butterfly
you've become

shine on

The ballad of mini murder-foot

 
He owns me,
this cat  

shadows toes †
relentlessly  
to the kettle, †
bathroom  

rides on shoulders  
up the stairs, only  
to abandon us  
at the top  
in favour of †
a good scratching pole  
and his favourite cushion. †

Some mornings I wake  
and he is just there;  
his soft head pressed †
against mine  

the rattle of his purr †
plucking whiskers  
like a gold harp  
as I dress in half light  

and he boards the neck train  
down to the kitchen †
where he shuns his full bowl  
eyeing up Marmite toast  
and the last dregs of milky tea †
in my upturned mug. †

Sometimes, I wonder †
if anybody else is doing †
the exact same thing  
at the exact same timeó  

if there are millions  
who have opened †
their hearts and homes  
to allow balls of destruction  
to choose them back  

and maybe thatís the lesson †
fury has to teachó  

to cherish, is not to expect  
something perfect  

sometimes it arrives vexed  
in bundles of tangled chaos;  
others, it will lay quietly †
at your feet  


itís a risk we take  
for love.

- Service Update -

 
itís been  
a while  
since I
allowed †
myself †
to read †
your †
book  

but here †
we are †
sixteen  
fucking †
chapters
deep  

as I  
am  
reminded  

that all  
the best †
parts of me †
are hidden  
behind †
stiff †
pages  
and †
white  
cloth †
flags  

.  
.  
.  

Iím tired, †
babeó  

tired  
of my  
skirt  
thinking  
it can †
speak  
for my  
cunt  

tired †
of the  
downfall  
of †
every  
thing †
after  

.

Blanket Sam

Thereís a pile of throws
in the doorway
of an empty Debenhamís

moving until the mountain
produces threadbare hands,
teeth, a dirty face

eyes that stare out
from beneath cloth
long called home.

Hey thanks, he says
as I hand him hot tea
in the cold city wind.

I sit with him for a while
as I drink mine, talk a little,
make us feel human

until he suddenly says
ĒI know Iím a twat, but
Iím also your best friendĒ


truth spinning out
long into the relentless
march of night.

Couldnít stop
thinking about it, as I
walked Piccadilly

through the festive
hustle and bustle
of St Annís Square.

All of us
have been here,
buddy

all of us
right here
with you.

kept in chalk

 

 

last time  
i went to  
bluewater  

i saved up  
20 weeks of  
pocket money  
to buy cheap  
smokes & †
tinnies,  

we'd  
all board  
a ninety six  
bus until †
we reached  
that pit  

in jackets  
failing to  
keep us †
warm  

with †
coontail  
extensions †
blowing in  
our racoon †
eyes,  

today †
i don't even  
notice the  
man made †
glass  

or the  
christmas  
lights that  
glow on  
elegant †
reindeers,  

i notice  
white chalk  
still standing  
proudly in  
all it has  
witnessed  

how  
my blood  
should be  
stained on  
the quarry  

knowing  
parts of me  
died upon  
white peaks. †

The Second Language

 
I spend half my life
cutting written lines
that I donít believe  
†are aesthetically  
pleasing
††in some  
bizarre  
††ritual of perfection

 
I canít tell you
††how much I hate that first verse

 
how I wanna rip it from the root,
††throw it pissing and screaming
into the river, watch the vowels
††drown in their own soup

 
and I wonder about recovery
 
††if I can leave this here awkwardly
while it grinds my lips to dust;
††if I can allow it to rot

 
the way that it exists in me
††before I polish a tongue
into something  
††palatable & strange
 
vaguely  
††human

Along the Shore

Shifting sands
Along the seashore
Driftwoods
Broken seashells
Incessant waves
Lapping indifferently
On gravely shores
A jetty
Where boats dock
I think of you
Safe haven.
