Immortal Time (Song #3)

Light slithers through the cracks, Through my smoke and purple night sky and obliterating nothingness Sun rays of pure and absolute delight Hints of beauty Accents of life Tiny drops of something * My life and yours connected by a weak link that I’m unable to strengthen Looking for life in the throws of the…

A silent observer

And I knew that that’s what would destroy me in the end: You thought I meant you would destroy me, your presence When you were wrong, you misunderstood It was your absence I was referring to All along I told you  I knew we would destroy each other But I didn’t mean that your character,…

Water

It’s molten lava that I can’t spit or spew out Driving me insane, burning me from within and is the burn inside, is it me? Or is it the situation, something that’ll ever leave? And I’m so tired of these metaphors: fire, lava, candles Since I’m water, I’ve always been told so But how can…

Grasping onto grass

I hadn’t realised I’d lost myself with you But I had Grasping onto grass and flowers, finding myself again Perhaps freedom suites me well 21/11/15 (15:14)

Mint on your tongue

And the moon’s my only company But for now it’s fine Because night is always warmest when you’ve got hope Even when there’s no reason to hope It’s belief and being certain without reason that makes it all better Believing without proof Knowing without knowledge Hoping without reason Hoping beyond reason * Tasting mint on…

My hopes

And I thought that you’d disappeared But it seems that you haven’t 19/11/15 (22:05)

And then it all changes

And then it all changes When I realise you might come back When I stop feeling and step back and use my reason for a second And realise that what we have is something you can’t find around the corner It might not be the best, but it’s good and it’s worth fighting for It’s…

Merci

Merci Merci pour toutes les choses que nous avons vécues ensemble, Nick Merci pour le nouvel aspect du monde que je ne connaissais pas avant que tu nous présentes La vie et moi Merci des couleurs roses que je voyais partout Merci pour cette beauté dont tu m’as appris l’existence Une nouvelle part de beauté que…

A dream or a nightmare

No matter what I wrote in poems only minutes before I still can’t believe it I still see you in every silver Toyota that drives by I still taste you on my tongue With every cigarette I still picture you facing me on my wall I still feel your arms and your warmth around me…

When I finally discover the ether

Thank you for knowledge Thank you for the way the very air shimmered in your presence And the way the glimmer held even in your absence Thank you for your honesty Thank you for your love Thank you for your time All of the above * Thank you for your body Thank you for your…

Thank you

If this is the only way I can talk to you Then talk to you I shall: You have no incling of how much you have changed me In the month we knew each other I’ve grown, not only physically but mentally I’m so much more mature, reasoned, calm, strong, You brought me to new…

Your absence like a scent

You’re like a scent that I can’t shake off Whether stench or perfume, who knows? You permeate every room I walk into Haven’t let go of you yet With time, the distance will be an easier suit to wear I need time You do too Do I wish you to come back? Right now, hell…
