My War

My War

I am always present in the world. It’s a conscious decision not to partake in the communion of souls. I like to watch.. from the sidelines, sometimes. I am present in the atmosphere, My breath joins others, creating life with the sun. I am as […]

She’s just a girl

She’s just a girl

What a cliche it all is. That while you stood there, I stared. That when you smiled, I crushed. That when you laughed, it was like a tinkling of beautiful gems. What a cliche I am. That I could not resist. That I couldn’t not […]

The tin woman has a heart

The tin woman has a heart

To all the faces I brace, Against…smile an armour, I use…like a talisman. It is easier to speak of the height of the sun, Than delve into the tin to find soft tissue. It is lighter to talk of the dust that impersonates sand, Than […]

For you

For you

Your smile, forever changing. Now hemming in on my poor heart and taking it places. Then reeling me into your eyes, constantly searching. With glee, it glows; windows light, the soul shines. Pines at mine, that often gives you joy. When shy, my face lights […]

Consistency

Consistency

Rain, rhymes with pain That she can’t seem to feign In loss they gain Freedom, some disdain Light steps, skip paddles Were those yesterday’s cuddles? Whispering on the wind like bubbles? Now you see it, now you don’t, lost marbles? Drifting… on the breeze A […]

Simplicity

Simplicity

No more fights out of this soul Tell me those beautiful words I will listen and believe Look into my eyes that way you do I will look right back into yours Smile into my face And I will smile back with glee I will […]

You

You

I hold you to me, like a constant whisper. A shadow, only I can see. Next to my own as real as the hours in a day. Side by side, my mind drags you along. An insistent companion, you are to my every action. Only […]

You do

You do

You make it better. You, with your cute dimple and adoring eyes. Your funny words and warm smile. You make it easier. When you spend the day writing words I want to read and saying things I want to hear. When I know that you […]
