Night Rider

Turn an eye to the
lonely sky
with billowing clouds
pregnant with rain
hiding a waning moon
winds are screaming to the night
ti's an omen
so they say

Heed where ye travel
beware what ye do
above all whisper
the words ye shall say

For he rides
in the dark
searching for men to slay
would it be the ones gone wrong
with debauchery and lie
of the evil
that men do

Keep a razor sharp eye
take care lest you stray
into a cold and darkened night
he is waiting to take your soul
and there is no giving back

Sydney Xmas Limerick

At Christmas in Sydney it's hot
(wintry and snowy it's not)
So on the nude beach
Remember to reach
And smother some cream on your bot.

reflections

i look at the girl in front of me,
she looks back, confused.
a girl who i thought was my twin flame,
my partner,
somehow seems so dissimilar to me.

sometimes i wonder what i did to make her feel this way,
did i wear the wrong thing?
did i come across as something i'm not?

but she fooled me too.
i thought we were the same.
she made me feel secure.

i hope one day i can look back at her,
and feel the connection that i once did.
something strong,
something empowering.

Piccalilli on Rye.

I quite like plastic sandals,
dick shaped candles,
and big assed women in my bed,

I like artistic folks and dirty jokes
and piccalilli on rye bread,

I like big gay men and Tony Benn
loud mouthed scousers and Steevv-en, Fry,
I like The small faces and whisky chasers
and come home Lassie - made me cry!!

I like the upturned curl
of shitting dog lip
the hurl and swirl
of big girl hip.,,,

(Deeeep breath)

The Witch's Teapot (Hallowe'en Contest)

Spider legs sprout and canter forth
With glorious joy and dark purpose.
Pottery tips and clackety-clicks;
A dance on the dusty wood surface.

Then a pause and a shout,
In celebration no doubt,
"Oh happy, happy day!"

Such relief it expects,
"We are going to have guests!"
Tonight, a most wicked soiree.

It's been far too long
Since our Mistress did feed.
Months! No a year, yes indeed!

THE BOND

And the old man said to them
Grasp this bunch of brooms
But if you can't then tell me why
As iron,
Nothing can compare to a united family
But, when there is hate and
Insensitive sentiment
Then, nothing is more dangerous

To be in the future
You must make love with the present
And make peace with the past
Look beyond the flesh
As blood is thicker than water
You will see the reasons to mend the broken
To tend wounds and to let go
off the pieces

falling stars

 

 

Another shooting star

I refrained from wishing,

having watched it

disappear

 

 

Rain

Do you ever feel like rain?
Unable to stick to anything
Instead, you make everything around you seem gloomy wherever you go

Sometimes I feel like rain…
I cannot seem to stick to anything
Unlike snow
Every time I try to
I slip and fall onto the muddy wet ground
When the sun comes out
It tries to lift me up
I fall again
I cannot seem to do anything to change it

Disposable

We were so close. You gave me joy and I could tell you anything,

            believing you cared.

Knowing you would be there for me.

Then something changed,

            and you threw me away.

You only care about them,

            yet you still claim to be my best friend.

You reassure me that I'm loved,

            that I'm valued and cared for.

But when I need you most you ignore me

            and only care for them.

Like I'm invisible.

You see me struggle,

You hear my cries for help.

Line and Circle 2.0

What cut me in half?
I was a rolling tire
Leaving too many tread marks
On the backs that got too close.

Oh, how I mistook the Messiah;
Ring marks and
Broken wedding rings.
Misdirected by the Hungry Ghost.

Allergic to mirrors and responsibility;
Just a half circle on its back.
Fill me with ice cream and give me a lolly.
Oh, how I annoyed even myself.

A return to your kiss; a
Warm wet circle that
Tattoos a promise on my chest.
My heart and a second chance beneath.

CYNOSURE OF YOUR EYES A POEM OF 2014 READ BY1350

I was 18
really wildly romantic
became poem
for many a poet
very cute when young
composed romantically
world loves it mostly

also keep changing avatars
logos and your signatures
gals will fly in
like butterflies
guys will silently admire

I'm since aged
yet my mind is very fresh

love to compose
love poems

as we dance prance and romance
every day in beautiful France

Taking the tears

As time took the tears
and threw them
through the years
finally falling into the future’s
fluorescent flames of fear .
Where everything
I hold deep and dear
suddenly starts to disappear.
Then that's when
my world came clear.
Revealing the reality
that I am alone.
Alone and
on my own.
