An Appropriate Lie [Original Poem]

It’s crystal clear

Mutual attraction

Then all her pain is inside of you

Not even a fraction

You dare not move aside out of fear she’ll reject you

But was she ever yours is the question you’ll ask few

Those who have witnessed your last testimony

And know you’re sincere in your tall told stories

They’ll look to the sky and grace god with a wink

And pray the realisation occurs in the second reserved for a blink

Because you need to realise that while it’s not fair

You’re leading her through a storm that’s not there

And she’s about to provide you with her fair share

Did you ever stop to think of that cross to bear?]

Or was this when you woke up from the nightmare?

She starts to speak and ignores those behind you

The ones that stand their ground and pull through

They’re all smiles and it hurts to laugh

Now that you’re prepared for the aftermath

You’re right there in front and she starts to cry

And you’re left locked in the shell of an appropriate lie.

Just How Many? [Original Poem]

Just how much sleep must I have before I awaken?

Just how many times can I hope for anyone near?

Just how many times can I slip through life in my slumber?

Just how many scares must I go before I know fear?

Every night, every day, every second and hour

Just how many mean I’ll be here this year or next?

Just how many months can go before I finally meet you?

Just how many lifetimes can run out before there’s none left?

Just Another Place On Earth (Original Poem)

Where are you now?
Your tiny thoughts?
Everything you wish you were
Locked away in the box?
Where are you now?
What can you see?
Is there somewhere, some place, some time
You can spend with me?
I know what you are
You’re in my sights
I know all that you desire
I live your life
Heaven knows where you’ve landed
And heaven lies right here
Half of your world in the distance
Your better half is near
For I’ve seen what lies
In one man’s worth
You fight forever where you’ve landed
Just another place on Earth”

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

We Insist Upon This Realm (original poem)



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
