I promise to return.

I loved the day when the swords
fell from the sky
and you and I did nothing
but dance to avoid them
until we tangled into one.
Even in that illusion
I’ve never felt something so real.
And even if yours is a face
I’ll sinfully forget,
I’d hope that time is kind enough
to let this memory remain.
Know this,
I only let go assuming I’d be back again.

Gospel

Apologies for the time away. 

What is it that you whisper in my ear,

As we lie underneath these sheets,

This is yet another dream, I fear.

One where I know when I awake,

I’ll have dried tears running down my face,

And you’ll fade into the faintest memory.

So while we’re here in this world of white and softness,

Let me lean in close and hear you say something softer.

For your words are Gospel

And although you’ll not witness me kneeling,

I’ll still bury my face in your neck.

And really, that’s worship just the same.

Star Stealer

Not sure where this came from. Maybe a dream. Maybe my imagination. But it’s here now.

Dear, you’ve stolen all the stars in the sky,
You’ve draped it in a veil.
As I look to heaven all I see is the ink you’ve spilled

But if only I could utter
A single sentence or phrase
Of a promise I once made.
For you, star stealer, I’d scream it
Out into wind
So jackals would prick their ears up
And hear of the promise I had made.

I’d said stay with me forever,
I’ll give all my time to you.
For you I’d move the mountains
Even an ocean or two.
As forever stood before us
I heard the sirens ring
A fire it had risen
And set a lit your bed.

And then you were burning too
Your shape turned into smoke
It rose and blotted out the sky
And every star as well.

Fantasy

You smell of fantasy,

like a book so old

that the dust on its surface

pollinates my skin.

And as I let myself

breathe all of you in,

I think of all the words you’ve uttered,

Every umm, snicker,

And lost train of thought.

My mind wanders the rails

They came off

and as I place my ear against

the cold bare metal,

I swear I hear the echoes.

I can’t help

but have such thoughts

blossom in my mind,

For whenever you are near

I am always so restless.

A Vision of You (II)

As I collapse

Into yet another dream

Of you,

my eyes can barely

Keep themselves closed,

I only know this once I am awoken

For in the dream,

Nothing distracts me but you

I am unaware of anything but you

And I cannot lie but say

That even after awaking

And cursing my eyes for their failure

It is you that still occupies my thoughts.

I reason with myself

That my eyes only open

In fear that I might follow you

In my dreams forever

And never awaken again.

Ode to Soul Savers

You are a gift
To my soul,
For you water it
With an essence
That only spills
From your lips.
You shimmer it
With a light
That doesn’t cast
A shadow,
And yet
leaves others
and myself feeling
Just as safe
As if we were hiding
In the shade.

Circles

Inspired by the words of the wonderful, Himani 🙂 

My search has me
Wandering in circles.
For years I’ve wondered
Why this is?
Why is it that we,
Who search for the wonder of love
Always seem to finish where we start.
Love seems to be the journey
To finding those first footsteps
We left in the sand,
All those years ago.

So Long, Leonard

This poem is dedicated in memory of Leonard Cohen. One of the Great ones. 

cw9r6wuxuaai5h0

I can smell
the cigarette
smoke
in your voice.
The shade of dark blue you wear,
so dark
it’s almost black,
is the vision I
witness
When I close my eyes.
And within
the depths of this blue
I see smoke
Unfurl
Words
And I am reminded
of how much
you loved them.
You treated them
Like children,
So tenderly
was the way
they emanated from you,
I hope
the place you’ve gone to
Is as blessed as we have been
to be swayed by your words.

Some More

I could

write and write and write 

And still there would

Be space and more

on paper,

hand and fingers willing,

For me to write about you

some more.

Fracturing The Light

tumblr_mhzaxcQmsL1s0a4soo1_540

Parts of the bed where
The light beams streak across
Are merely markers for where
You and I are meant to be.
It’s a sort of beginning,
And sort of end.
This is where we become
Children once again,
Tackling each other
whilst fracturing the light.
