Lovitivity v1
Time is the recorder, measuring events that expire
And not the Judge, deciding when events transpire
it silently and anonymously prints beginnings to endings
The world juried our Love affair
Earth’s, Mountains and Rivers observes Us moving as fast as a locomotive
Its verdict mellow,...Read More

The heart is a lonely stranger
found in the darkest void from a shattered life
It will wander endlessly
until the depth of pain has bled all its blood
upon the solitary floor of the mind
To leave a stain etched in the growing mold

Right Now.
If you knew how I feel right now
you’d be drinking too
A breath away from ending it all
Feeling lonely
And a very dark shade of blue
The ceiling is coming down
The walls are closing in
I’ve just had too much
And my resolve is...Read More

Daffodils and My Ageing Aunt

I try to visit her at least once a week
for lunch, or take her shopping, then spend
a few hours listening to a waterfall
of repeated small talk soaking my brain
and wearing away my endurance,
but pretending to hear for the first time....Read More

Practicing for Heaven
Most of the music I’ve written will never see the light of day
I guess it wasn’t meant to be heard here
But that’s okay because still I persevere
Driven by a sense that it’s not for nothing

That there’s an eternity coming…

Clean burn

In the early morning light

With coffee that can float an iron wedge

Words fall out in a steady beat

Not Condemn but to persuade
Say goodbye to the masquerade.
Let Light come in, let darkness fade.
The Word we cannot sugar coat.
It’s what separates the sheep from the goat.
But we simply can’t throw stones.
Or leave the fire shut up in our bones.
We cannot water down the...Read More

Premium Member The Silent Pitch and Sportsmanship
It is not a conversation you overhear,
Like the questions rolling underfoot,
"Who goes there?".
You can see the grass has told
How tall to grow
To the chicory, dandelions and clover.
At the edge of the pitch
Where competition is stiff,
They grow bigger, taller and bolder;
Yet...Read More

Last night
I poured some memories into a glass 
They didn’t fill it, not at all
The bottle was almost empty 
When I started pouring
Someone else’s history
I sipped, gulped, finished it
I always drink too quickly
When I like the taste
Such a stupid thing...Read More

Premium Member In YesterSmiles of YOU

When we were young

We ran in circles 

We had fun

Skipping over puddles

As we played

We’d sing and dance in rain


I often recall

We’d be hugging 

All night long

I'd feel you breathing softly 

Next to me

In vivid memories

The Yesternights

When we would walk

Along...Read More
