Forgiveness the greatest gift that one can bestow
Although I fear that there are many, who still do not know
That through relinquishing all our anger, fear, bitterness and hate
Our lives can be replenished, our destines realigned towards a greater, more fulfilling fate
One of true freedom within peace, love and happiness
Let's share the message and banish both theirs and our futile sadness

What stirs beneath my waters 
My love, I fear you will never know
Even though, you're with me daily  
you're just too afraid, there, to go
To taste love's honey nectar 
you must first become the bee
Gather up all our precious, fleeting moments 
Darling, please share yourself with me 

Do you yearn to feel my fire, breathe inside you 
even though you may get burnt? 
Darling, throw open the drapes shrouding your heart;
dispel all defence strategies you have learned
Drink from my soul's well of euphoric essence
My love, I'll give it gladly, all, to you 
Feed ravenously from my body, mind and spirit; 
please, allow me to feed freely from you too

Know, time is not on our side, my love 
I feel our love weaken, rapidly, day by day 
I am in such dire need of your love's nourishment 
and yet you only pick, meagrely, from my buffet
All the ingredients we need, we have right here
It pains me, greatly, to see your confusion and dismay
Darling, take my hand; release your fears and soul to me
I promise, through open honest love... we will be ok

Peace at home 
Peace abroad
Peace in hearts
Peace in thoughts

Peace in words
Peace in deeds
Peace when angry 
Peace when in grief

Peace through adversity
Peace through fear
Peace towards strangers
Peace towards all held dear 

Peace to your neighbour
Peace to your friend
May Peace soothe the world's pain 
...causing all hatred to end

electric lights 
iridescent jewels of night 
City splendour 
 ...what a sight

urban blight
Homeless souls' forgotten plight;
amidst such wealth 
how can this... be right?

Dream Falls

full moon 
archaic majestic heart healer
stars bright
my boon 
In awe; mesmerised by her splendour 
my heart welcomes the love she renders
my pain  
her ethereal moonbeams tender
My mind
set free
she is the night's sweet solace lender
unwind me 
sleep beckons; it's time to surrender
comforted in pools of silvered sheets
Dream Falls
with renewed wholeness... I feel complete

very much alone...
surrounded... by other's needs
silent... comfort craved

My Bittersweet

You are my bittersweet
        my should not
               but I just can't help myself

My missing puzzle piece
        and yet
               not at all
You are carved from an entirely different jigsaw

You and I 
         could never fit!

Not without reshaping ourselves
         and everyone around us
                  not without cutting out
                                       of our very own souls

         why does that knife still glint in your eye
                   awakening a darkling
                           nearly dead
                                 place within me
                                         which, craves stimulation

Do I really
         so badly
                need to bleed?

         when I know the pain caused
                 would be so devastatingly unbearable  

A festering wound 
         which, could never heal
                 a sickness 
                        which, would erode my soul

A deep scar 
         which, would disfigure 
                 both myself and my loved ones
                        for life

You are merely an innocent
         yet selfish
                 "what could have been" love

A handsome bound book 
         which, beckons for me to open 
                   to peruse its enchanting narrative
                           to purvey its unread alluring plot
                                    to experience
                                             but only within my mind

An illusion
          an unobtainable ideal
                  a prayer for an antidote to a broken heart

A happily ever 
                  a never

An "if only I knew then, what I know now"

A secret of the heart
           which belongs to only me

A guilty pleasure that makes my day
          even when I promise myself 
                   that I will
                           and must ignore

By you
           I have even been marginalised and mislead             
                    lead into a melancholic state of morose
                            of near mind-altering madness

         and time again 
                 I have ridden your waves 
                         to my own destruction 

I have been swept up in your sultry surf
        allowing your patter 
                 to wash away my pain
                         and the sense of being
                                   so overwhelmingly

I have felt your empty words fill me 
         the swell
                as your tide 
                         drew all its fickle
                                                  towards my shores

      for those blissful moments
                your waves of words 
                                 my parched 
                                           and fragile
                                                  needful sands

I felt loved 

As then
       you made me your moon
Your life giver
       your saviour
                your sanctuary

I felt intrinsically the sheer pull between us

        but alas
                it is all in my head
                         and perhaps my heart
                                    it also plays its part


You are
        just a beautiful daydream
                a mirage to my unquenchable thirst
                         a figment of my fertile imagination
                                  my Loki
                                            my tormentor

My internal deafening scream
         which can never 
                be heard!

Melding Ministry

Enraged embassies evoke endless emotional turmoil
Symphonies of finely tuned voices soothingly serenade
Mundane mindless maleficence, muddies innocent minds 
Counterclaims chorus... gentle cosmic consciousness chimes

Indulgent imaginings elude impoverished idiotic ideals 
Heroic hearts meld harmoniously... hindering the hiatus 
Prophetic peacemakers piecemeal profound parables of ministry
Eclectic emissions inspire effervescent empathic energy

Red E'en

Sunset butterfly kisses, painted crimson on the breeze
Auburn foliage bows its head, weeps gently from the trees
Autumn Fall's, majestic, sanguine sky brings me to my knees 
As shepherds delight amidst red e'en
...tonight, so do we!

Sweet Sara (Teasdale)

S inging rhymes still chime, echo in poetic hearts
A we inspiring imagery... such breathtaking art
R edolent infused verses, penned in lucent hues
A mour's sweet caress to her death defiant blues

T eetering on fragile, winged words of whimsical 
E mulating the grace of all things magical
A mbience deftly captured... etched within our minds
S ubtleties of wisdoms, woven in her lines
D arkling undertones danced, disguised by winsome thoughts 
A las... love's sinuous web spun, held fast, heart caught
L ife, just, too rough for her delicate demeanour
E nds tragically; in Love... she was believer!
