Stolen Moments

Love finds a way...

In the eyes of another I would be thief. It matters not to them of my own hearts grief. Or the emptiness that dwells inside, A hidden heart that long since died. Lives half-lived with others twined. Trophies set proud, polished and shined. Yet something missing, an aching hunger. A desire unfulfilled from a heart much younger. Homes and lives left alone each night. But the yearning...Read On

Living in a dream

Spouting Shakespeare and living in a dream, Nothing will ever be what it seems, With scraps of paper fallen at my feet . John Lennon glasses and a beatnik shirt, Everyone’s so different it almost hurts, The words I write all start to taste the same. I listen to a song but I can’t hear the beat, A melody is heard playing further down the street, I catch the mood in my hand as it...Read On

Where Were You

Where were you  When the love died Did you notice Did you care We are passing like ghosts  Unaware An empty hollow feeling  An echoing shout of sorrow Of loss Fills my very being Bounces off the chambers Of my abandoned core. You encompassed Inhabited Were indwelling for so long But have now vacated And the source The reason The purpose for the change Escapes my vision My seeking My...Read On

A Life Of Wondering

Lots of different feelings

Sometimes we laugh and everything is great,  Other times it's silence and moods. It's a crap shoot to try to relate, I don't ever want to intrude.

I sit here and wonder are you okay, I smile and give you a kiss. Everything is okay today, We're back to...Read On

Doppel Day Dolly

The day I met my friend.

He called me useless and stupid, but I did find my way to the fashion store. I got there all on my own. The only trouble was, I was already in the fashion store, and I watched myself liking the very same dresses that I liked. I didn't know what to do. The...Read On

Mollys Dreams - Chapter Five

With my face pressed against the window, I watched the miles rushing past as we headed south. The tears running down my cheeks could have flooded the big rivers of the north coast, but they had started to dry up as we left the lush green pastures of sad-eyed dairy cattle behind. The coastal landscape became a dry blur of trees that kept flashing past my eyes. Every now and then there was...Read On

Beautiful Smile

It could have been real?

“Bloody hell!” I got up and switched off the alarm. My roommate brushed his teeth while looking outside the window.

It was from Love143, and it caught my attention. I opened it and saw a picture of a smiling...Read On

Volumes

If silence speaks volumes then it doesn't matter how much oxygen is expelled from my lungs for you, if one breath can strip you to the bone and shake each monster you've molded my face to. Whatever you've shaped us into, I'll be in the dark and would rather keep the moments where I looked into the bare essence of someone, someone who could return such a rare gaze, and never flee from what...Read On

Wrong

Inspired by someone I know

All her classmates say That she must be gay That she's strange and unadapted With her short black hair And the clothes she'll wear That she'll never be accepted That she had denied Every boy that tried That she would not let them near And that sealed her fate She just can't be straight Maybe even one to fear But her lifetime long They all have been wrong Though they fail to comprehend...Read On

Love’s Pleading Salvation

A poem of love and passion.

The labyrinth of the heart  is full of hopes and dreams, entrapments and schemes, and dances to a blues harmony. The heart bleeds and scars, it writes the novel of life of defeats and victories, and sings an ode to the soul. I feel a hot breeze burning, conflict of power and submission, blood sizzling through my veins, conquer and be conquered. Lost under a black moon, ...Read On

The Answer is 42 (addendum to The Professor)

Professor Bachusrand wrote, “=42” on the wall. He stopped and looked at what he had written. Then he rappelled down the inside wall of the tall tower, where he had been working on his equation. When he reached the bottom, the old lizard celebrated by running around in circles, jumping up and down, and singing. “The answer is 42 . . . the answer is 42. Whoo-Hoo the answer is 42,” sang...Read On

A dog will pine away if its owner dies: a cat will do ANYTHING to survive...

Aunt Melody had always loved cats. Not just the real thing, mind, but cats in any sort of representation be it picture, figurine, tacky plastic toy or nasty knitted thing she picked up at some table-top sale or from a charity shop. Over the course of my lifetime – forty-two years and some – Aunt Melody had gone through more than a dozen assorted moggies of all sizes, shapes and colours....Read On

Valerie

Everything dims around me,  a bulb's filament fading fast,  the light along warm hands cautiously  receding when we reach for one another. Our hearts like two darkened continents afloat,  struggling to collide in our new forms. Consuming me now just as much as the first time  I tried to unravel your mysterious layers,  the clues and fissures entwining our maps,  connecting the...Read On
