Here’s a selection of my poems. Enjoy ………………………
A Kiss on the Lips Whilst Loving
A kiss on the lips whilst loving
Brings with it a gut wrenching
Brings with it a nerve jangling
To be made whole.
Is tender and soft and
Tolls on the bell
That hangs in the heart.
It is brutal and cruel,
And yet awakens the soul,
to love life and death
And of a pulsing
To be one.
and holy as God’s breath
on a summer’s eve.
Let Me Be
Let me be a point, between two other points,
On the edge of the map of your world.
Let me be a dot on your horizon.
Let me rise like the sun in the dawn of your day
Let me… please ?
Let me be a space in your mind
In which you find peace and restoration.
Let me be a fire that keeps you warm,
Let me be an indistinct sound
That echoes teasingly and tugs
At a beautiful memory.
Let me be a footstool so that your feet are never weary.
Let me sing a lullaby to ease you into sleep.
Let me be the bird that eats the crumbs
That fall beneath the bird-table that you keep.
Let me be the full stop that gives you pause,
The comma that helps you breathe
A word that spins and spirals
In your mind and makes you tingle
to the core of your being.
Let me be balm to your wounds
Let me be the calm to your storm.
Let me… Please?
