Shall we Dance

Around the succulents

The rockeries

The beds of mint

Shall we dance

Barefooted

With blades of grass

Beneath as cushions

Shall we dance

Holding each other

Twirling and laughing

Never letting go

But the song is ending

It’s in the air

As crisp and white as snow

Hurting

With every breath

I’m not crying for it was fun

For just a moment

Was number one

Letting go

Fingers linger

Only the tips

Our digits whisper

Want

I want

Classic of you

Words of want

Ringing true

I want

All of you

Mixed up words

What now Mr Blue

I want

An idea or two

I want it now

Just a few

I want

You always do

What will you give?

In return Mr Blue?

I want

Here we go again

You call me up

And give your name

Just so you know

A name won’t do

I want much more

All of you

I love thee

She whispers into the air

When she wakes

When she sleeps

I love thee

When she walks

When she moves and speaks

I love thee

When she bathes and sweeps

I love thee

When she reads and weeps

But most of all

She loves him when his home

For keeps …

Have I told you

I need you to help me get through this

Things are falling apart

The jigsaw pieces won’t hold anymore

The ice now in my heart

My voice is low and trembles

new depths to this blue

Soon there’ll be no purpose

If life is without you

Egg shells

Are so fragile

Just like your mind Not agile

Since he left you abandoned

Head spinning and broken

We’ll pick up the pieces

I love you he teases

Stole your thoughts then he laughed

Broke your brain stabbed your heart

You forgave, sad and blue

But your brain blew a fuse

Always nervous anxious and tired

No blue pill, very wired

So amongst the shells we walk

We listen you talk

He’s back now you pray

But he just wants to play…

Time on Earth

Should be all it promises

Sunshines and lollipops

Unicorns and horses

But listen while I spill a spool

Of loneliness and heartaches

Where trees Sway

Stairs are long

and winding

And sighs escape when they may

So jig it up

Drop a few, mix it if it pleases

The plan to plot

No sadness you want

So drop them as you need to…

White Knight

Laughs with ease

Dimples in cheeks

Smiles and pleases

To all the masses

He knows no fear

Solid as a rock

Mopping strangers tears

A little jig here

A rose for you there

The White Knight is busy

Fair maidens he cares

So bat those fake lashes

Shed foxy tears

Whenever the White Knight

Is heard and appears

If you’re in distress

Ask him any question

He’ll never digress

He craves women’s attention

He is called the White Knight

On his stallion he gallops

I’m sure he has pleased you

Did he sing you a ballad ?

You were real

You were real in my dream

But then I woke it would seem

I was down on my knees

Eyes lowered hands clasped bleeding

A soft touch on my shoulder

I feared to look I was older

Tired and sore fearing what lays

Ahead as I dropped knowing I may

Get whipped from soldiers

Taunted by them

For weak am I but still worked for them

Come you whisper to me softly

My name you called and sad for knowing

Bonny was I once upon a time

The world my oyster

But now is a crime

You helped me rise follow me you smile

No one else saw you invisible was I

We walked down wet paths onto the stairs

You hold my hand I could only stare

Now I know I’ve left this world

With my love I remember you so…

December

I’ll always remember

The light in the clouds

You’re eyes and your brows

The smile and the nerves

Too fast all a blur

December babies

The mother carries

The babies of truth

Honesty and sleuths

Mistakes and misgivings

Move on is for living

Hiding the hurt

Resentful and flirt

Like butterflies to flowers

Have super powers

To make others smile

Whilst all the while

Cloak you in love

White clouds from above

Know this too

Always are blue

Yet continues to live

For love is to give ….
