You Are


In the darkest corners

Of stippled nightmares

And foul, shapeless doubt

You are light


My silver starshine




They ebb and flow
Azure waves crashing
Against my ears
My heart
Some fleeting wisps
Dead before understood
Others thicker than blood
Unheard until too late
I say them in haste
With inconsiderate passion
So I leave them unsaid
Rotting through to bone

Clearing Rubbish


Bits of rubbish left behind

Tossed aside like I was

For something ‘better’

Thrown to the wayside

I pick up the pieces

Collect them in a bin

Staring at them

Pining for the past

With nowhere

To empty the can

Should I leave it be

Accept my burdened fate

Or embrace the refuse

Knock over the receptacles

Of hurt heart shards

And live among them

Sculpting garbage art

From the remnants

Of unrequited love

Clearing Flotsam

Clouds of dark grey

Hang heavy over dreary loss

Blocking light’s true path

The rat race thickens

Warm respite not to be had

With futures in flux

Hopes are memories still held

Unrequited love

Haunts the waking life

Arresting the sense of self

A ship full of ghosts

Amongst flotsam and jetsam

Unknown Rhythms


When thoughts


Drift back

Churning the past

Scars unseal

They purge bad blood

To progress anew

This cycle of mine

Grief, hope, regret, wonder…




Leaving me grey

From root to tip

Vitality draining

And then renewing

In strange

Unknown rhythms

Gap in the Rainbow

In sleeping ether

I am whole

You are near me



I wake with sour courage

Slump out of bed

Nourish the body

Toil to earn worth


An existence of sorts

Void of your color

Where green grass springs

Cold grey resides


Knowing your joyful

That verdant glow

Vivid light yet remains

Grants me warm respite
