Hear my heart

He sang the words

As they flowed from his heart to his lips

Made the motion of his anguished potion

Eyes closed

Brow furrowed

Hear my heart

He repeated more intensely

This time I see it in a mist

The words flowing from his heart circle his legs arms and wrists

Floating upwards through his chest shoulders and neck

Oh she’s a mess a wreck

Her own heart beats emphatically


His tone lowers

He takes a breathe and once more sings

Hear my heart

More crooning

No more fooling

This man’s in love

A falling dove

Sends her peace

She believes him

We all do

A silence falls across the room

And they disappear

Once more I shed a tear

Never have I seen

One so aloof yet distracted before

Knock on my door

Wanting more

Yet bring nothing to the table

Tell me fables

Caress me in ways

Like sun rays

Feeling good splashing kisses

Those I miss

End this tryst

You imagined for us

In God we trust

And left with nothing more to give

Hopes are sieved

Like sand and crashing waves

I walk away

It does take two to tango

Learn my lingo

Read my lips

Watch my hips

Swing in the opposite direction

Ignore you’re new election

To be crowned my king

So then where’s my bling

I’ve worked hard but there’s no thing

Just a sinking feeling

Skin peeling no more you

In we

Little snippets

Jiminy crickets

The sludge of poison

Her words of white noise is

Cruel with intention

Like water retention

Hurts to the core

Yet continues with more

Without her pills

She waits by the sill

Complains of cold feet

To all she meets

Her thoughts and desires

Has fooled thousands of squires

She now wears a crown

How did they allow

For the poisonous one

To rule the family and sons

The play

You say

Balls in my court

Or so I thought

Play the King Queen and Jack

Lay those cards down

Tip your hat

Messages missed

Air you’ve kissed

Words you wrote

Played and spoke

30 days

You’ve sung I’ve prayed

Almost near your guitar dropped

And locked

Last shows

And then it goes

All away

Say goodbyes but don’t think

The boats gonna sink

It’s the start of something

Palm lines and rings

Removed to lay your hat

And moods

With good intentions

Then no more mentions

Of how much longer

You’re no stronger

Than the rock above the glass

It will shatter

But that won’t matter

As finally you’ll be near


The bridge


Yours and mine

To cross with options

And that’s fine

The bridge infront

Words are blunt

Confused and flow

Emotions grow

The bridge helps us cross

Waters and rocks

Also strengthens

New starts and locks

In new paths

To help us move

Forward not back

But will I lack

What strength I need

Hold my hand and

Help me breathe

Where once was

A thought a pose a rose

We had to build a wall to block the noise

Coming from across the oceans

Stopping our vibrations

From intertwining a simple life

We were fine but now there’s no life

The veil that envelopes us

Choking us

Comes from the country of the free

But in actuality it isn’t you see

From whenst their young ones

Are babes out of cradles taught to perform

For one another but not to search for the other flame

So who is to blame

The mother who was a bother

It comes to light

It was their fight a shotgun wedding

A babe was born

And now he is alone reaching out for what who knows

The fame that never came

I sure hope he finds the spark

Then leaves us to be simple again

Tread softly your words are being read

Then maybe she will see red

Uh oh here we go

Another trip

Down that road

Of birds that sing

And bells that ring

Hearts a flutter

Words to stutter

Stranger tunes

On vibes renewed

Catches and sniffs

Guitar riffs

That crooked smile

Words that rhyme

Eyes that spark

Singing larks

Uh oh here we go

Midnight chats

Screaming cats

Hair on end

Hearts that blend

No I won’t

Allow the rope

To tie it’s knot

Across my heart

Been there before

What a laugh

So heed my thoughts

No stories bought

This thing called love

This singing Dove

There’s only one

He’s number one

When I’m confused

He is my Muse

The day begins

Without sin

Food from the earth

Replenish within

The day starts

A lonely heart

Again no thoughts

Just only let’s start

The dawn breaks

She moves and shakes

Dogs to walk

The pain is great

Phone turns on

The mask is on

Whom will she meet

Their smiles so fake

Afternoon comes round

Ever so fast

Nearly home

A smile at last

The world has changed

These thoughts of blue

The only truth

Lives inside you

At night alone

Let yesterday rest

For tomorrow lies

Another test

What is this for

Why do we exist

To follow a life

Without sin

Got it

Get it

Over it

See it

Believe it

Question it

Narrate it

Make it

Feel it

Don’t drop it

Hold it

Embrace it

Face it







Catching on…
