Mane flowing like the sun's rays,
he prowls...
across the grasslands of his kingdom:
holding his head up high,
he's not afraid of anything;
that is why,
he is the King... 
of the wild, 

Creeping through the grasslands
...silent and inconspicuous,
from his unsuspecting prey:
he lowers his head,
get's ready to pounce, 
for a minute... 
the whole world seems motionless,
for a second... 
he looks like a part of the golden sun;
to the ground he leaps...
his sharp claws pierce the skin of his bewildered prey

Father's love is a special one
Filled with rough/tumble, games and fun
A job for life... it's never done
Second to none, second to none

A strong, firm hand... a heart of gold
Remembering the wisdoms told
And cuddles when the nights where cold 
You broke the mould, you broke the mould  

You're always there to give advice 
You give your love... not at a price
You navigate me from life's ice
You're always nice, your always nice 

To say I love you... words too few 
From all of your Grandchildren too
So thank you Dad for all you do 
For being you, for being you

An Ode To Black Gold (Coffee)

It's that time again... the night's given way to the dawn 
Insomnia's merry dance has plagued me once more 
My weary cotton-wool head it lifts and yawns 
Fixating on the dark, delicious decadence which I'm yearning for 

Coffee's alluring aroma tantalises me... taunting my impatient palate
This archaic, ebony elixir is so welcome to behold
As I take my first sip, my tastebuds practically pirouette  
When its power erupts I shed, finally, fatigue's sallet
In my dire need it's certainly, to me, a precious Black Gold
The only thing I need now... is today's first cigarette

Set adrift in your eyes, I got lost in love's sea
Shipwrecked in your wake… but do you remember me? 
I signal to you from the embers of my heart
Rescue me, my love, from my Isle of misery

I frequent the shadows; I'm sinking in love's sand
The sun burns my body where you once placed your hands
Salt tears stain my cheeks. Darling, have I cried enough?
Sent message via bottle... hope you'll understand

I've searched the stars, but can no longer see your face
Without your love I feel so desolate... displaced
The shells they taunt with whispers, echoes of your voice
I fear I'll die on these shores if you don't make haste 

I'm starving slowly, denied of the love of you 
I've drawn three words on the beach... yet they seem too few
I pray you'll see them soon and it won't be too late
Before I am swallowed up ... devoured by the blue

Have Mercy...

In your strong sapphire blues I swim beguiled
Lost in translation; alone in your smile
Your sanguine lips cause me to bite my own
A king before me... I melt in your tones

Golden tousled locks fall about your brow
I heed your command... to you I will bow
I'm at the mercy of your every whim
With great precision you bind, tight, my limbs

I'm intoxicated by your prowess
I watch you nervously as you undress
Bronzed chiselled Adonis, before me stands
In anticipation... I clench my hands

Lunar Lucent Goddess

Lunar lucent goddess with silver star-spun hair
Wrap me in your velvet cloak of constellations
Please protect my fragile heart... banish my despair  

For my hope, it grows colder in the cool night air  
I fear my dreams encroach upon near cessation 
Lunar lucent goddess with silver star-spun hair

Please rock away my woes as I say my prayers 
Don't let insomnia cause further frustration 
Please protect my fragile heart... banish my despair
Cast your moonlight upon me, so that I may dare 
Step out from this dark, deep, depressive damnation
Lunar lucent goddess with silver star-spun hair

Touch my soul with majestic moonbeam-fingers fair 
So I can once again feel free, feel elation
Please protect my fragile heart... banish my despair

Now I am rejuvenated through your grace and care 
Light's liquid love will afford me rehydration 
Lunar lucent goddess with silver star-spun hair
Please protect my fragile heart... banish my despair

For You

For You

There is no depth, I would not swim, to reach the safety of your arms
I'd plummet without a parachute into the mercy of your charms
I'd starve myself of oxygen, just to taste the breath of your kiss
Sacrifice my heart for you... I'll be the target you can’t miss

I'd taste from your poisoned chalice, to save you from yourself
Surrender all I have and am; lavish upon you my body's wealth
Take every ounce of pain you've ever felt and I'd internalise it within
I'd shield you from life's cruel sorrows... I'd pay for all your sins

For you, nothing is too great my love, there is nothing I wouldn't do
The only thing I'd ask, of you my love, is that you'd try to love... you too

Illness Unseen

a flame in the breeze
her eyes danced... dazzling with fire
...was misunderstood
even branded a liar

the signs were all there
but took too long to be seen
a disorder so...
profound... an illness unseen

her odd behaviour
now makes sense... can be explained
shame no answers sought
instead... everyone just blamed

a troublesome mind
is so hard to comprehend
mental illness hides...
in a world of judging friends

we've lost another
angel... too tender in years
because of stigma,
ignorance... misguided fear

so please look deeper
when odd tendencies appear
help... do not label
'till clarification's clear

as you just may save
someone... pain too hard to bear
as life's hard enough
...we all need someone to care!

The Tube

crimson-faced steel snakes; 
skulk, full bellied, beneath ground
...devouring free souls
glazed stares course through city veins
parallel lives... never shared

Icarus Love

In your sweet words, I melt like Icarus's wings 
Blinded by the sheer brilliance of your heart's glow 
Caring little to none for consequences 
By now you'd think I'd have learned... that I would know  

Your passion's heat evokes my dreamer-self
Lost in love; hedonistically I glide 
Recklessly, fuelled by spontaneity,   
I summersault excitedly through your skies

No heed will I pay, to how I know this ends
My soul, in hand with yours, just wants to soar free
I will not accept incarceration here
I'd rather plummet to death within love's seas

So when I am found, washed up, upon life's shores
Please do not shed any tears, my love, for me 
For I will have tasted the heaven's nectar 
When with you, adorned in love... I once... flew free

Poetry Sets Me Free

Poetry; it sets me free from the realms of my own mind
Never knowing what the pen is showing until I read and then I find
Words devour my inward thoughts, spilled out for all to see
Verse or prose, it matters not, the stanzas set me free
My drug of choice, poetry is my vice; I revel in its bliss
Poetry's passion elicits, in me, my every licentious wish 

Dispelling encroaching darkness, poetry saves me from my fears
Its eloquence of vocabulary is music to my ears 
Words resonate; I see my fate unwind in clear calligraphy
Poetry, my heart's pure voice, paints its raw emotive imagery  
Its decadence, without pretence, pieces back my fragmented heart
Through scribing out the pain of years; despair I'm enabled to depart

Without my muse and all its cues, I think I'd still be lost
So pen in hand and thoughts in ear, I scribble at all cost!

No matter what I say to you
I can never get it right 
So I imprison the words inside of me
and I let my feelings type 

My heart is true and honest
but it's somehow not enough 
I bend beyond the realms of sense
with undeterred steadfast love

In my saddened heart I know, though
that this, you do not recognise
Through, filters of paranoia 
it's me you grow daily to despise 

I wonder how our journey will end; 
if we'll continue to muddle through
or if your demons will defeat us 
and I'll have lost... both me and you?
