Remember

To listen to me reading poem click here 

 

I used to want it all

but now I gather free fall

white petals floating on an ether breeze.

 

The fire & the rose have burnt a huge hole

I’ve done so much of nothing

since we’ve been.

 

Other’s talk of love

how little they know,

of waft of weft our inner harmony:

 

& when I think of you

my heart still skip soars

a living breathing grace

 

an entity,

 

where the trees sing for us

of early sun & Spring solace

Spring solace still to come

 

that lasts a Summer lifetime:

forever you & me

our  lemon dreams.

Cloud moment

2016-01-09 15.30.29

 

 

A hundred thousand

moments pass me by

 

& still light glistens

on the leaves

 

the world replays

this seamless dream

 

this life.

 

We had our chance

it seemed too much

 

to bear

 

your violent love

your heavy step

 

yes, something in me

met you there

 

& left you broken

on our private shore.

 

A hundred years

it passes like a day

 

& still the light

lies golden o’er

 

the stream

 

you & I are dreaming

in our sleep

 

forever in this moment’s

fragile thought.

 

 

 

Fool’s gold

2015-09-02 18.27.32

 

 

Your voice it

sounds the same,

through time it

 

bounces memory.

 

We laugh as if

I’d never left:

I always leave

 

as if our love

is not bereft

of living.

 

I know that

you’re still mine,

a twist of soul

 

padlocked

from the cold

buried deep

 

in summer dream:

the key you

threw away

 

not knowing

it was gold.

 

So tell me who’s

the fool? Who thought

time would heal?

 

Or find you

someone new

to play our tune?

 

Your voice

it sounds

the same

 

& it’s better

to believe that

tomorrow I’ll awake

 

to gold again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rewind

 

2015-08-08 14.16.10

 

Returning to the

same place, hands

across ocean, eyes

 

wide open now.

 

Cold crisps me

skin burns

bones ache

 

who would have

thought there was

so much ‘’cold’’

 

in this.

 

Sky high &

wide sunrise

above cloud

 

we hurtle through

infinity never

seeing it.

 

You are mindless

I am alone

in this:

 

searching always

searching to find

a gap.

 

Returning to the

same place as if

this is

 

‘’new beginning’’

 

but the old clings

at the entrance: I forgot

to remember

 

how to live.

 

Somehow I am

un – manned

by this.

 

Time again

 

 

 

Time licks

skin of tomorrow;

lingers on the lips:

 

here destiny’s

afraid to take

the fall.

 

Memories surface

wind across water

rippling my surface

 

bending sleep

to somnambulance

 

we are coming

we are going.

 

 

Midday sun

scorches, empties;

thoughts rectify

 

the guilt

 

 

Time’s left me

stranded; honed

to shred of former

 

fire.

 

Water to water

this island sweats

voluptuousness

 

fruit tumble from

heavy tree & the fish

leap like silver circlets

 

of life.

 

Time is all

I’ve lost, yet still

in dreams

 

I’m seventeen,

waiting to begin

again.

 

 

Miracle

 

 

 

Rain in paradise

you talk of miracles:

 

eyes shine

skin gleams

 

you sweat the

Virgin Mary

 

water to wine

bread to body

 

high on prayer

the mass lingers.

 

Rain on mahogany

you spin your tale

 

you journey with

a flawed myth

 

blood to wine

stigmata always

 

blood drips from

catholic shrine

 

across the ages

you talk of miracles

 

it rains in paradise

I suspend belief

 

this one time.
