Cello

Black hair
Black eyes
Her stare gets you high
Black dress
Black shoes
They dance as she moves
Black look
Black night
Fire will ignite
Black smile
Black heart
She’ll tear you apart
Black song
Black paint
Her cello feints
Black lust
Black desire
a want’n fire
Black beauty
Black Rose
Strikes a pose

Rave’n

All Night Long

Surrounded by people no more

Scent of perfume forlorn

Spirits disinfecting

Souls disappearing

Oh how far man has come

Over time counting to a sum

Oblivious, as the end of life looms

Overwhelmed by deaths toxic fumes

Struggling to find the words

Sadness crying and it hurts

Strikes a moment the world is hushed

Starts the first line of a poetic thrush

▶️

Yes, Yes, Yes

Whispered gently, ever so gently

With every touch felt from the vibe of these words. Echoes in time every syllable and rhyme. Trying to keep, rhythm flowing, tugging hair, nails deep, clawing flesh red and bleeding.

▶️

…tugging hair, nails deep, clawing flesh red and bleeding. Lips to lips, hands clutching hands, legs that entwine like the vines that sprout fruit to make wine. Drunk on the very thought, grooving on a buzz, lit afire by the desire to make love all night long

▶️

…make love all night long

A Heart That Bleeds

A Heart That Bleeds


the want is deep in a love where the heart bleeds…

there is no puncture no physical wound
to release the ache
that grows inside
a heart that bleeds

it boils slow, bathed in tears
it flows over pouting lips
taste the bitterness
a heart that bleeds

the tongue licks
saltiness, sorrows bliss
from days that pass to tomorrow
a heart that bleeds

floods inward
without escape
left to decay
a heart that bleeds

broken and shattered
left alone battered
when love hurts
a heart that bleeds

Nightly Fate


Nightly Fate


Setting sun comes with a fiery glow
Faster faster the horizon darkens slow
How the pain grows as light fades to go

Shades of blue, a line across the sky
Turns darkest at a point most high
Where evil lurks in wait to fly

The hour comes, howls through the air
White knuckle fisting, gloom and glare
Sending shivers, echoes tingling hair

Blowing wind, buzzing the ears
The demon within appears
A tornado, shadows, spinning fears

Ghostly white, dressed in black
Hooded and cloaked front to back
Leading an army of ghouls on attack

Call the Father, Son and Spirit to dance
The good and meek do not have a chance
Without sword, shield and lance

Pulling and groping, sinking down
Hands like branches, vines up from the ground
Pinned and crushing, lungs begin to drown

The anxiety flares, it starts to boil
The ache inside strained from toil
Left vs Right like vinegar and oil

A battle that thrives in the heat of night
Sleepless, left weak, pray to see the light
East beyond peaks, breaches with delight

Songs sung by birds awakening call
Lifting souls from a beaten fall
To honour a new days rise for all

The demon within retreats in wait
For the sun to set behind heavens gate
And unleash the horrors nightly fate

Above La Lunas’ Glow

Above La Luna’s Glow


Above la Luna’s glow
Eyes cast beyond stars
Darkness consumes
All, of a lonesome heart
Wingless blackbird
Stranded on earth
Rooted to ground
Misery found

Above la Luna’s glow
A beacon pulls
Connecting soul and mind
Sucking the energy dry
Eyes shaded black like coal
But shines with a glow
Bright as the moon
An onyx one

Above la Luna’s glow
Waits, a far away home
Ferryman journeys
Collecting passengers
Scarred with the mark
A ticket to ride
Galaxy’s past
Light years away

Above la Luna’s glow
Fades in, new dawn
Witness, the rising sun
Still, planet earth
Counting the minutes
Ticking and tocks
Passing of time
Lost, lost, still lost

Above la Luna’s glow
Returns the yearning pull
Glides the razors edge
A mark left by a previous scar
The ferryman nods
Opens the door
Taking a soul
To a world unknown

Above la Luna’s glow
One will never know
What lies beyond the known
In death, dreams may come true
To close the eyes
For the very last time
A silence grows
As the final breath blows
