worthless EMOTION

Tell me your secrets,

lined in silver,
snow lies,
and whispers,
Are we but what?
Yet not what we want,
envisaged, desires, hopes,
to those who have the courage to dream

To live lives

Let us live our lives free from troubles,

behind a veil of self content myrrh
let the champagne flow, ice and bubbles,
and may the fireplace roar, our desires purr
Let us live amongst laughter and cheer,
may our hearts be forever filled with summer
consign to oblivion worries and fears,
and the world continue to fill with wonder.

As for those who can live their lives as said,
no mortal nearer the gods may tread.

What are our friendships?

Fleeting meetings?
Acquaintances, fading to memories?
A splash of colour in our otherwise grey lives?
Or is it something more?
A lasting compainionship,
straining shoulders,
pillars, welcome amnesia,
opioid from life

He said to me 'I'm scared sir'

Do I have what it takes?
The ability? The resilience?
How can I face what we face?
Do what we do?
Get up every morning and take on the world?
I replied.
If courage is to face what we fear,
how can we be courageous without it?
For there can be no light without darkness.

Christmas Toast

May the best you've ever had be the worst you'll ever be

From discomfort, fear and trouble forever shall be free,
May your hearts leave this place full of joy and cheer,
Now lets eat, drink and be merry, Christmas Tide is here.

Love Is

Love is kind, Love is gentle,

Love is forgiving, Love is committed.
It does not seek revenge,
nor is it proud or vengeful.
Love dedicates wholly,
sacrifices regardless,
loves unconditionally.

Love is absolute, irresistible,
It cannot be hidden or ignored.
It fuels our desires, our passions,
It is the cause of our actions,
and the raise from our failures.

Love is everything one seeks,
a gift bestowed, found
It gives us reason for being
and without it we are but empty vessels,
without purpose or direction,
condemned to a life
of passionless emotion

If it is the opium

Forced upon, necessary, but not as so
Is god needed for lessons in morality?
Will human conscience not suffice?
For if religion is the opium of the masses
Schools are the administrator

Walls of love

It won't always be easy,

you and I,
hardships and tribulation
argument and worries.
We will face the storm of life,
and though winds of discord,
and hails of misfortune
must be endured,
our house shall not fall.
For we have built it strong,
upon foundations of trust and care,
foundations deep rooted
in tutelage and dependence.
So that when we face cyclones of contoversy
we shall face it together.
Safe behind our walls


Revelry of Belief

Awaken from your revelry!

The numbers cry
For we can define your false numen,
in figures and explanation.
Sunset, Apollo's Chariot?!
Saturnalia, Christ birth?!
But still the people shout back defiant,
we are happy in our ways,
do not open our eyes to the light,
for we have lived in darkness for so long,
that the truth is painful.

Woken, crash to reality,

the unfamiliar scent,
wrapped around the room.
Hair draped across my face,
an extra arm sprouting across my chest,
from the nameless body.
Not a Salome Ann Duffy body,
though I'm sure the allure was present
if now faded.

And now once again,
I escape the cave of whatsername,
to my next pursuit

Empty Pursuits

What do they hope for?

those who pursue it.
It does not heal or enlighten,
strengthen or richen
It is the most shallow of all pursuits,
and indeed the pursuers,
shall soon find them selves falling amongst the grains,
for if all you existence amounts to
is chasing fame for fame's sake,
it is a life built on sand
and liable to come crashing down around you.
