OH LOVER BOY

 

Surrendering to your caress

Tired

Not very willing

Though somehow

you

undo

me

My thoughts try to wander

the maze of my mind

My body

in your hands

takes over

is in

charge

Relishes

I writhe

Back arched

Surrendered

Unto you

Oh Lover Boy.

I WRITE

 

I write to make sense

of all that surrounds me

I write to exentuate

all that I have

all that I am

all that I will be

 

I write to share

depths of my soul

degrees of my persona

not so easily seen

 

I write to lay bare

to gain perspective

to view and be viewed

 

I write to inspire

both myself and others

To bring about change

to encourage

to enable

 

I write to write

a compulsion

a passion

A deep-seated need for the power of words.

 

words etc

LAST NIGHT

 

There was a girl last night

At the club

Outside in a smoke screen

Talking about her 20km walk for breast cancer

Short patterned skirt

Tight black singlet – all boobs

Fake Chanel bag, rummaging for fire within

She described the walk……

“Weather was a bitch,

I was hungover like a cunt”

I laughed at the time – drinks helped with that

But now

I can’t help but think

What would my grandma say

Had she have heard her?

The language of the free and easy.

FORWARD MOTION

The steps of forward motion

of  positive thinking

of creative visualisation

are riddled

with pock marks

deep holes

filled with every negative

thought

I have ever had

Often I am able to jump clear

Raise the bar high above

But

Sometimes

They snare me in their clutches

And it takes all of my

energy

To break free.

And when I do

It feels as though

I have to start from scratch

Once again

Build myself up one positive brick at a time

Only this time it is faster

My workload slightly less

Those nasty pot holes

Covered over for the time being

Round and round

in circles I go

Until one fine day

I will reach the heights of

Me.
