Love’s Only An Answer (Original Poem)

 

Last night as I lay sleeping
A thought occurred to me
My friendships are so fleeting
None are meant to be
I awaken with a firm resolve
To connect firmly with my past
But then I make the same mistake
Of assuming that will last
And I never seem to learn I was wrong
That a soul can only answer
When you felt it all along
And I never seem to learn I was wrong
That love’s only an answer
When your questions are all gone

Within Us All [Original Poem]

Every day there’s a question
It plays with my soul
I find only one answer
Which way do I go?
Do I try to move one way
Left and not right?
And when the voices descend
Will they say day is now night?
And the strength within us all
It cries out for a weakness
To make the right call
And the fears within us all
It relies on our silence
To ensure that we fall

We Insist Upon This Realm (original poem)

 

WE INSIST UPON THIS REALM

Long and distant whispers
As unquiet as the soul
Fill the rooms around us
They bring comfort to us all
Close your eyes and listen
And believe there is a place
Where echoes of our confessions
Inform the heavens of our race
We pray that our sins cause commotion
Among those standing at the helm
And they look kindly on the parliament where we insist upon this realm

Waking Heavy (original poem)

WAKING HEAVY
I’m coming ’round to my expensies
Can’t afford to love you less
You and I breach no defences
We’re free to choose if we confess
Throw me to the lions, sit amongst your prey
I’ll tend to our pride, let them know it’s ok
Teach them nothing is missed, keep their child in two minds
One may slip from sight, the other they’ll find
Waking heavy asks much of us
The weight of the love left when we cry
The sight of the soul asking why.

The Moonlight Bides It’s Time

 

When you call out at the midnight hour
The moonlight bides it’s time
Wait until the day in motion
Has no place as yours or mine
This moment belongs to one and all
Never shed it on this date
The creatures of the sky and Earth
Bask in this fine gift from fate
And you forever see reflections
Of the world within your eyes
Giving in to your temptations
Pure tension in disguise
You reach out for my tender kiss
And you hope it hits the spot
But in her mind, love is precious
And forever’s what it will cost

No Need For Escape

 

 

 

It’s a day without the cold
Yet I feel there is no heat
There is something on a clear day
That makes me so incomplete
And I look outside the window
Hoping it’s just a phase
All these long surpressed thoughts and feelings
Surround me in a maze
There’s no means of navigation
No sign of a new fate
No way to know the answer
Yet no need for an escape
And then you pull up outside the window
You make your way into our house
No longer are we in danger
We’re as tender as a mouse
There’s a means of navigation
I’m in such a stronger state
And in the maze of my emotion
There’s no need for an escape
