SHADES OF MY SOUL

0704e5e9e8e8c367e31cf65f9888d877

Shades of many shades in my soul
Has been turning me around in my bed
Drinking tea from a ceramic tea cup of chinese origins
Driving myself into a rollercoaster of dirty emotions
Needing to speak to someone who knows my pain
Big bangs of loosing control of my own sanity
Sparks of fire
Smoke
Peaceless nights
Spectacles intact
Windscreen shouting in danger Turning everything upside down Concious of a cold
Shivers in the night
White handkerchiefs of a 19th centuty gentleman
Paddles in muddy weather of raindrops
Washing my soul with laxatives, painkillers, eyeing that meth
Just to numb the pains of shades in my soul
This glass of wine
This cup of tea
This mug of porridge
Staring at a fish bowl, gold fish trying to find Nemo
Loss of you baby
Loss of myself
Loss of my existence
Loss of my identity
Loss of my sanity
Dances
Make no careless whispers in the night, upholding a strength of possession
Say a prayer of broken hallelujah to the single lone star in the blue night sky
Pastures of broken frontiers green with fertile lands
Seeking mercy
Searching hope
Feeding faith
Harvests in summer
Tales with static meaning of surprise dates
Wanting to shed off weight of grief without horror of pain
Partly cloudy
Shades of many shades in my soul

A VALENTINES’ DAY HAUNTING

They say she died on Valentines Day
Stabbed by her lover’s mistress
14th February 1750 they say
I hear clanging of chains
I think it is just the wind
Nay it is not
Even the spiders on the wall weave their web faster
Soon as midnight beckons
Feeding stops

I AM A MAN OF UNCLEAN LIPS

guy-praying

I have been weakened by temptation
Almost destroyed by sin
I have lied without mercy
Stolen without regard to men
I am only made of dirt
Lifeless without your breath in me LORD
Forgive this man of unclean lips
Lips that have led me to the arms of mistresses
Lips that have made me become a mistress

BAREFOOT POET

barefeet

I walk these lands on my barefeet
Tasting fresh earth with my toes
Toes that twiggle with anxiety
Have i lived enough in these lands
Have my words taught or inspired
Who is it that knows me
Knows when my heart is aloof
Or even when my mind is blank with white

MY FORBIDDEN VALENTINE

bad-weather-93871

One more kiss goodnight
Could be the end of me saying goodbye
Your lips have been too real for me
Taking me to a world i recognise not
Imprinting on my body
A language no one else can speak
My bossom cannot translate
All the carefully crafted sensations
I have come to know from your chest
