Untitled – Kind of …

some kind of pain

some kind of joy

some kind of beauty

some kind of despair

some kind of life

……..

what’s it all about?

Tears

tears from above

go whence?

after they fall



tears of love, grief, joy

cutting paths

leaving scars



at journeys end

what becomes of them

do they remain?



as  vessels filled

with pain and love

to heal or to harm?



either way

they have a story to tell

which must be heard

Rainbows in Her Eyes

fluttering eye lids in the morning light

cascading hair across her visage

my love lies in a gentle slumber

slowly the gateway to her emotions opens

fluttering eyelids reveal what lies beneath

 unleashing the emotions

lying behind the portal



they spring forth

revealing all the colours of the rainbow

the colours of love, lust, longing

desire, happiness

sadness

the rainbow in her eyes

I am privileged to see

and partake in all the colours
