Together Forever

To My Wife

If life is a game

And love is a place

Then I'd ever be

Within your embrace

But now we are far

So far from each other

But soon it's not so

In kisses we'll smother

When time is a memory

And space is a dream 

Together forever

Rid of fates scheme

Laying together

On a midsummers day

Gone into the light

Wisped far away


Once school was done
and after your tea
of beans on toast
you went with Janice


to the narrow passages
behind the ABC cinema
evening creeping in
she next to you


getting the jitters
street lights
here and there
casting shadows


making pretend giants
and you'd pick up
from the ground


and put them
in your pocket
what do you want
them for?


she asked
make myself
a cigarette later
you said


she said disapprovingly
you mustn't
that's horrible


and those
left over cigarette butts
have got
people's spit in them


but they make
good cigarettes
you said
her face grimaced


you took in
her red beret
to the side
of her fair hair


her blue eyes
on fire
if I did that
Gran'd spank me


well and truly
Janice said
trick is
not to be caught


you said
a rat ran by
and she screamed
a rat ran by


my foot
she stepped back
and grabbed your arm
yes you get them here


at this time
of an evening
you said
I shouldn't be here


she said quietly
Gran thinks
I'm in the park
well as far she knows


you still are
you said
but that's lying
she said


no it is being
careful with the truth
you said
you walked along


the passageway
and came out
on to the New Kent Road
and at the front


of the cinema
with its big billboards
and little photos
of the film being shown


and what was
to be shown
you peered
at the photographs


Janice beside you
how about
I bring you here
on Saturday?


you said
she peered
at the photographs
then at you


it's a cowboy film
she said
yes and its got
good gunfights in it


and I can practice
how they do it
she frowned
not sure


if Gran'd let me
she said
say you're with me
and she will


you said
she didn't look
bit her lip


treat you
to an ice cream too
you said
how much will it cost?


she asked
you said
but don't worry


my old man will pay
he usually does
she bit her lip
a little more


have to ask Gran
she said
you said


then you walked
along the road
past some shops
then stopped


at the fish and chips shop
smell that
you said and sniffed
she sniffed


isn't that good
you said
she sniffed again
smells of vinegar


she said
and fish and chips
you said
she looked at you


her blue eyes
lit up
by the light
from the shop


want some chips?
you asked
I've no money
she said


I've got 6d
that'll get us
a bag to share
she nodded


so you both
went into the shop
and the warmth
and the smell 


and the noise
from some radio
blasting out
a Bill Haley song


and ordered a 6d
bag of chips
and added
salt and vinegar


and walked out
and across the road
and down Meadow Row
the moonlight bright


lighting up
the beginning of night.

Dead By Dawn


Deep is the day and slower than night

Whose Gulf is the starry Night

Mad, somber, faceless forms,

Blind masks of bale, woe and fear.


Dreams uncomforted, lying awake;

I rouse the All-In-One; Dead by Dawn!

Some thoughts.

Thoughts Like Waves

The fears that threaten,

To face one's life,

On terms not one's own,

Can bring euphoria, strife,

Or a wild combination,

Like a key to a lock,

It can either move mountain,

Or leave one in utter shock.


Your they twinkle...

Your merry...

Oh "Tides of the Heavens",

Don't leave life in such a hurry,

For there's so many things,

That you won't and can never know,

But believe me my love,

You will be back, should you choose to go.


For life is a circle,

No beginning, no end,

And living in truth,

Your whole being shall mend,

Temporary chaos,

Can seem very wrought,

On a soul who can't seem to undo

What they've thought---


Was the truth.


With that, 

Change comes tumbling down,

Then, in the blink of an eye,

Your smiles turn upside down.


We all live with threats daily,

This not new to us,

Soon you just reach a point,

Where it's not worth the fuss


To be angry or vengeful,

Or feed into some dare,

Where your life is, is here,

Not your thoughts over there.







Author's Notes/Comments: 


Just a poem. We all think things. 

Just sometimes we may 

not have the skills or awareness

to use the power to 

let things go, as letting go

In the mind is what is important. 

Then moving on is very easy,

Even if there is changes we must live with.


The thoughts come in...

The thoughts roll out.

Like the "tides" of post poems... 

And waves of emotion,

Hold onto your whitecaps,

Life can be a rough ocean!!

Asshole Smite

Sad smiles and long nights,

No more calls, no more fights.

Walked out the door and turned off the lights.

Sit in silence and recall your bites--

I'm never right.

The wind howls red




Fingers frozen, jacket tight, the merlot leaves taking flight

Foot steps long ,quick in pace, better hurry home, you are not alone

The wind howls red, the chill runs deep, you should be in bed, to Grandmas keep

The bramble cottage comes in sight, everyones sleeping, there is no light

You skip closer, just a little more, oblivious to the danger lurking beyond the door.


The Night

The darkness arrives
And yet something wakes.
The sun goes to sleep
Covered in the blankets
Of the horizon.
The moon wakes up 
To take the sun's place.
Where the sun once watched over,
Now the moon does the same.


The creatures below sleep 
Both in comfort and discomfort.
The creatures move about 
In the shadows
Untouched by the moon's light.
Quietly they sleep.
Stealthily they crawl.
The night is quiet,
With silence the night wears on. 


Light and Dark

I don’t wake till the sun goes down

And the dance floor lights

Beat in my chest at 150 bpm

My heart to match

Eyes glow in the dark

As the dark crawls in

We all dance

Like people possessed

But it’s an energy that doesn’t stop

Heat and bodies melt into haze

Flashing lights display the world in slow motion

Or are just speeding us up

Thousands of nights at warp speed


Transcend time

Underwater Trying Not To Drown

Sorrow filling my lungs

Choking on the tears

Crushing my heart

But I’ve never felt so alive

Underwater Trying Not To Drown

Cinders to ash, ash to smoke

My soul caught on the breeze

And left this empty corpse behind

Far behind and not looking back


Why can’t we go back to who we once were?
