The Mystic And The King
The Mystic and the King

~~~~~~~~~~~~~1~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The valiant king rode across
A perilous mountain pass, which
Led to a mystic who could
Dispel the chance of death at war.

He roved along the rough terrain
Through rows of shuddering pine
His journey had no sojourn till
He'd drink the...Read More

Broken
I know it's over before we start talking.
I feel the cold on my skin because you don't touch me anymore.
I taste the blood in my mouth because you don't kiss me anymore.
I stare at the ceiling and stay awake because...Read More

I'm Just Getting Started
The cold dark night is behind me, I still feel it's chill
But I'm just getting started
An unfamiliar path, dividing into an unfamiliar fork
Right or left I have not one clue
A tremor of excitement begins its upward trek from my toes

As old as time.
Love is following me.
I wish it would die.

As Old As Time Itself
As I grow older, I ponder what it really means to be, and why so much hatred exists.
I think about out where humankind went wrong, and why we constantly speak with our fists.
In the beginning, humans were designed to be...Read More

Ireland
Water crashes against an unmoveable stone face.
As white foam blows high like star's in space.
My gaze reaches up and over rolling hill's of
beautyful green grass where bird's fly soaring high
looking down on a wonderous land as old as time but...Read More

Let me be
Let me be
The mirror on your wall
Telling you how beautiful and bad you are.

Let me be
The one
That will wash away the pain hidden in your pride.

Let me be
The one
That will fight, protect you and also die when you die.

Let me...Read More

Better than you
Just because we have been on the street for an unknown time,
With faces as pale as wax,
Watching poverty sing,
With a sweet voice caroling like a gold-caged nightingale.

You think because we are poor, obscure, plain and little,
Therefore, we are soulless and...Read More

Heartsong
When desire awakes..
The lingering ghost of years lost
Eyes hold each other up in prayer
Indeed,they pray in songs.

Wicked paths hands a'tracing
To a journey of no return
On bended knees and sheer reverence
Stripped of all else,but a smile

Reasoning is lost in this primal...Read More

Fooled, broken and dumped
The aircraft landed in Nigeria,
The day, 27th December, year 2018
And the airport taxi brought him home,
Mornings and afternoon's
Filled with sounds and sunshine
Amongst the family.
The affluent splendor of his foreign accent herald the days
Yuletide season! He's come from abroad, well, Europe.

What is rain
But drops upon a window pane;
With form and shape
Of natures liquid grape,
Their journey spent
Exhausted by their long descent.
They rest a while emboldened by their feat,
Savoring the warmth of the sun’s embracing heat.
Not ice nor sleet, but the purest...Read More

Hear
Stuck in front of camera
waiting to hear the cut
Speaking words secondhand
And thinking all unthought
And letters old as time
cower in the shadow of forgotten
and communication
Just 
lines of ones and noughts...Read More

Sun goes down until twilight hours of dawn
under the light of a corner street lamp. 
A performance stage, casts, leading me on. 
Awestruck audience at the fickle vamp. 

Pacing back and forth in high-heels to heat 
every wink of the...Read More

Rain
Morning opens its sleepy eyes to find
spring has made its debut on the world.
A gallimaufry of tender sprigs and shoots
lie beneath the soil, waiting to be unfurled.

Rain is determined to wash the earth,
and sunshine moments are but a boon,
April flowers...Read More

Loved Like That
It's as old as time
Pure and simple
It's unrestrained and
Spreads like wildfire
Gods love is holy forgiveness
And I wanna be
Loved like that

Like an infectious disease
That purifies and cleans
It forgives your sins
And sets you free
I've heard the stories
And seen his evidence
Now I've gotta...Read More

All Still Dance
we dance the old dance
as old as time itself yet

in the desert sands

There's a story,
As old as time,

Cute little girl skipping thru the woods,
A big bad wolf who follows behind,

She's Carrying goodies for her Grammy,
She does it with love and because she's kind,

The wolf trots ahead,
He's a mastermind,

He eats her Grammy,
