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

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

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…

Bowler hat

Of grey

A resting smile on your face

As you walked by with a scruffy dog

Ever so busy sniffing the earth

Dark shades on but I caught your stare

Do I dare


I’ll just trace the lines on your skin

In the air

As I breathe the sun in

A deep exhale then my fingers reach

Your sun kissed lips

Do smile when they reach the cleft of your chin

The canvas almost filled with my

Fingers recreating your face

There it is done

Your face in the air

The pull

The pull

From me to you

The strain

Amongst the pain

The hurt

The hole in shirt

The pain

Has left me lame

The spark

The cries of a lark


Of long lost forages

The ties

Your chains and lies


And ancient titans


Festival happenings


Now the true test


Paid the penance


Rested on a shelf

My turn

No more Yearns


Now we shall see


You owe me nothing

Just as I owe nought

But it somehow feels

Like you’ve been bought

Is this real

What I sought

Or just a game

Of crosses and noughts

‘Twas fun

Drove to the sun

But where we landed

Rain and wind

Had pelted

Magic lost

Greed lustre has cost

The earth to find

No more sparks a bind

Light is fake

Nothing’s left to stake

Was a blast knowing

Your journey was over

Let us down gently

Good folks and gentry

It’s all now staged

There’s no rage

Just sadness left

Will cry tomorrow

As it will be the last

Nothing left to chance

At the devils section

Amongst the mix

You’ll find sunshine shades

Don’t forget to blow kisses and wave

Let me know

The care factor won’t show

Is buried in the snow

Deep into the crevices

Of your arteries I’ll flow

And charge you again in 10 years or so
