Gasping for Air

Gasping for air

Love flutters

like a drowning butterfly,

swallowed up

whole –

Struggling to keep my

head above the

ripples of your heart

Yet still wanting to be

hopelessly – no,

recklessly

flung into those depths

drowning…

drowning…

Violent Love

Violent Lovve

Wild animal

– resonate in me

Violent Love

Tender Brutality

Snake, lion,

tiger or sheep

– Passionate,

almost Violent Love,

to: shy,

submissive,

meek
Only 50 shades of grey?

That is what I

want to say

– That Hollywood crap

you can keep…

I Just Wanted

i-just-wanted

I just wanted

to be happy

As baffling as

that may seem

I just wanted to

spread Kindness

Remove the idea

of being mean

I just wanted

to have Peace

As impossible as

that seems

but it’s ok, they say,

to always have dreams

There is no need to

“stand your ground”

It isn’t yours, for a start

It will still be here

When we’re not around

It’s much better to leave

a piece of your Heart

The Dance

The Dance

Devil’s dancing

in your eyes

tonight my anger’s

turning

lust related

through your lies

and now my anger’s burning

Trust deflated

a poor disguise

today my anger’s hurting

Love forgotten

nowhere to hide

tomorrow my heart is yearning
