Shared Burdens

battered and bruised

shattered and drawn

fading away

into the gray



dragged down

those deepest depths

the fear is real

sleep escapes



only but a heartbeat away

from what

I don’t know

headlong crashing into life

fading away from the blue



hearts are breaking

I can feel it, can you

let me carry your sorrows

let me shed tears for you

and

take them when they come

Through a Glass Darkly

gazing into the mirror

shadows flit on the edges

pulled into the centre

my shadow self

stares back

battered bruised

pain etched across

my shadow scarred face

hands reaching out

we embrace

become one

acceptance

peace

Flames of Desire

Another lust-filled homecoming poem – dedicated to my love ♥

your ravenous desire

sucks the air from my lungs

oh, our reckless desire

we are burning up

turn the flames up higher



feel the heat, the beat

keep the fire burning

that moment when we meet

let me feel your desire

…..

tonight, my love

I will have you

Clarity

only when we acknowledge

that we are all mad

will it all make sense

and

mysteries, contradictions

will no longer be

……..

life stands still

clarity achieved

Whose Rules

like shifting desert sands

rules keep changing

greedy corporates

keeping the leash short



work hard, be honest

play by the rules

it all comes to naught

they fuck you over



hung out to dry

despite playing fair

they don’t care

you still fucked
