ShallowBarely hereA ripple in the water.My heart whispers to yoursIts dirty little secretIn words left unspoken. Too clear.Too near.To the core, to the centre,To the goddamn middleOf the soul that resides here. FaintBarely thereA sigh on the windMy hand reaches for yoursScared of a secretThat might leave me broken.

When I say it is different..When I say it is new..When I say pasts are over…Will you see my words true?Because I know that I mean them..Because I know that they’re real…Because I know they say much less…Than what I really feel..But will you allow me to be scared…And will you allow me to wait…ForContinue reading “New”
You built me a bench onceWood as black as my soulIt used to remind meOf a time I was whole. It fell right apart thoughStraight from the startAnd seeing it in piecesWas ever so hard Until I suddenly realizedThat like you and meThis bench in my gardenWas never meant to be. With pieces that crumbleThatContinue reading “Purpose”
Honeyed lies drank from poisoned lipsLaid my careful plans to wasteThose empty words and hidden bitesAte me up insideYet I’m still craving a taste. Because all we really seem to wantIs what might kill us fastest.Consumed by our needsFor the food of our detriment And a sip of the deadliest drinkFilling up on love. IContinue reading “Bitter tastes”
The final wish’s been spoken,The final word’s been said,The final die’s been cast,Now all that’s left’s regret. So I’ll just blast this on repeat,Until I believe those words,Because when all is said and done,Only real love really hurts.
When you know.
Facing the abyss Stare into icecream pints Rocky road bottom And as a simple haiku may show – sometimes you’ll just know when you hit it. Hard, undeniably and unavoidably. There’s some destinies one may not escape. It might be mine to set the new world record for sheer amount of Ben and Jerries ingested.Continue reading “When you know.”
I could spell it out for youBut my words, they hold no meaningFalling on deaf ears,Resting on mute tongues,Fading in deafening silenceAnd would they ever be enough? I would spell it out for youBut my words, they hold no swayOver a focused mindAnd poignant emotionsHastily felt, easily discardedAnd probably never enough. I should spell itContinue reading “Lost words”
When the world goes topsy turvyYou just turn yourself aroundAnd find the upside down wayTo keep your feet on solid ground. Find the balanceFind the meanFind the middleUntil you find yourselfFirmly in the center. It’s just a matter of perspective You need only find what you want to seeAnd then all of a suddenIt’s easierContinue reading “Topsy Turvy”
I just want to feel something againDone with brokenNumbAnd sad. I just want to be myself againDone with mourning,WhatI had. I just want to love someone againDone with lonely,GoingMad. I just want to know myself againDone with excuses,FeelingBad. I just want toWant toNeed toBe just whole again. But I don’t know if I can.
It’s when I stopped looking For you….All the time,Every time,That I found the time. No more staring at the driveway,Or just glancing at the door,Waiting,Knowing you won’t come around no more.No more staring at my phone,Or looking for your name, on the list of who read what where,Waiting,Knowing you’re no longer there. It’s when IContinue reading “Puzzled”
