Premium Member The grave that was a heart
I didn’t want to leave you in the place where you had died
The doctors heard  me singing as I sat by your side
And the people with cut fingers and burns from   the chip oil
Wondered what was happening...Read More

Premium Member SPEECHLESS
The back of my head is attached to source
The straight bent double 
Faces in blind spaces 
Anxious anxiety bared
Running late into the cold laugh
Avoiding the lamp
Slipping round corners 
Hiding under the heart’s thunder and hoping no one sees

This be where...Read More

Wayne and Tracey - A sonnet duet

     Would you compare me to a summer’s day?
     No chance, you look more like a wet week-end
     But we’ve been married 30 years, this May

Time Stopped For Fear
Time stopped for Fear
she held her breath and then
stepped aside politely and
tiptoed 'round the bend

And 'though she kept on going
she slowed down to a crawl
until it seemed she hadn't
kept going on at all

Thus Fear felt respected-
so powerful and large
that he...Read More

Beware the Bugbear
I've heard a very nasty tale
I'm told it's likely true
that if you are a naughty child
The Bugbear might eat you!

The Bugbear- what is that? you say
it sounds harmless enough...
But names can be deceiving and
they say this goblin's tough.

He's been around...Read More

Thesaga of Suzanne the snowflake and Cyril the racist ware squirrel part 2
And there the story might have ended 
But the bite on Suzanne's thumb 
Throbbed and became distended, 
'I must say, I feel a little rum', 
she said and lay down on her bed, 
but as she fell asleep a patch...Read More

I Want To Thrive
I had just a taste of the good life.
Now all I seem to have is strife.
One thing after another, problems galore;
Until just living feels like a chore.

There has to be more to life than this.
All I’m asking for is a...Read More

Premium Member HEAD WAYS
Thinking burns holes
Pulls the rhizome from the soil
Adulterises birth
Acts like an overdose on ice
Brushes intuition off the ledge 
Spoils the smell of bacon cooking 

It drags something in and sits it on the sofa 
A weird creamy mass that never...Read More

Holdin' Back Sunday
Weekends go fast
Time is a curve
And if you drive a car
Watch out you don’t swerve
Watch out you don’t swerve
When you come ‘round the bend
‘cause you been holdin’ back Sunday again

Death and dishonor –
All those ugly words
Always hovering closer
Like malevolent birds

I am holding a mike 
Racing a bike
Don’t know what to do
What don’t u give me a clue!?!

And then I started singing 
Now there is no stopping 
No, you can’t stop me 
From who I want to be 

Now I...Read More

Premium Member DETOUR

Journey starts
Journey ends
Start with heart
Round the bend

Purpose arts
Purpose trends
End with start
Spark fond end

Passion flings
Passion gains
Stretch each spring
Mark feel plain

Detour here
Detour there
Now seed cheer
End nowhere

Premium Member Same Old Song
It's the same old song
 of love and the world gone wrong
that endless need and want
 that walks in the shadows of democracies haunt.

Is it a dream, some wild restless interlude
 of sleepless nights and dreams that exude
the love of...Read More

The Urge
I admit I have a weakness 
And it comes in many a form
It sneaks upon me in the night
Or sometimes after dawn

In fact it strikes at any time
I can’t resist the urge
I feel so helpless when it comes
As all my...Read More

Partway round the bend
Is where I spend 
Part of my time 

Some of the time 
Completely gone 

Other times 
I’m like lost dimes
Or chimes

Being          seeing 
Partway round 
Keeps me sound...Read More

The Heart And The Hormones
I'll try to convey what I'm trying to say.
Bout the difference between heart and horny.
It is something that I in the past didn't buy.
Cause I thought that it just sounded corny.

But now I've had time to think and to dote.

Premium Member A Bend in the River
I lay on the dry silken grass.
Tall thin reeds hide the sun,
but not the deep blue sky.
I watch the woollen clouds
chasing each other,
feel the soothing breeze,
listen to where the waters meet.
The river flows, a soothing strain,
sonority unrestrained.
Lethargy grips my soul.
I...Read More

Upon the slow flowing river,
     Suddenly swans 
Scud quickly away.

From round the bend I gracefully glide,
     I am the queen of them all.

And quickly my king arrives.

The dance of love begins.

The Mountain
I heard of a tale
Way high in the mountain 
You'll find everlasting youth
If you drink from the fountain 

No one has ever laid eyes 
To say that it exists 
An adventure I'm ready for
To explore and go find it

His clouds were so happy and so were his trees

His poor dog got rabies and went round the bend

Love funds warm play

A precious glow

When my long day's journey's over,
And my dues have all been paid,
And I've had a chance
To glimpse what's 'round the bend,
When I reach my patch of clover
And to my final rest am laid,
Will I find it's all been worth it
