    If Only They Spoke ...

    I Missed Your Smile Today.

    On the platform I watched with fascination the lovers at the station Lost in tender admiration I had to turn my gaze away. For the first time in a long time I missed your smile today. Living life at a pace, agents to please, speeches to make and deadlines to keep. The only time...

    A spell of sorts by moi Anticipating,

    The moment of soft arms Wrapping around shoulders broad, Chest to chest, Lips to lips, And mouth to neck. It is what it is, because Nature designed it so The horizontal dance of two. And of all the fanciful play Acted out in act One, two and three, Cannot suffice to abate The...

    Stalking

    It never rightfully belonged to me But I wanted it nonetheless, So when you were distracted and couldn’t see I took it, I confess. I thought that it might take a while For you to realize your mistake, And though I felt guilty in my guile I held it close, for love’s sake...

    Connecting the dots by moi Excuses.

    The Winds Of Time

    You are lost In faded colours of Summer's smile Memory. The world we had now locks me out I tear and strain in desperate style You drift away, I scream and shout My blood dries in the vein True love just means real pain. You are lost Until moonbeams send you from the skies To cut...

    Deeper Stranger.

    Shaded by a cloak of their own design and

    societies demand lay the observers the thinkers - Predators. Is it their choice or their nature? The latter whispers the wolf but he would, wouldn't he? A predator after all is not malicious, Merely a slave of his nature.

    Lyrics and prose choose to confess the darkness

    Hope is held, hope is found.

    It's within us all, not just laying around. It's there where your heart is and it's behind your eyes. That's why we feel hope can be lost, when one of us cries. Take care of your heart, catch your tears. Then you'll have hope throughout your years.
