The Truth about Love

Close your eyes

if your heart so desires,

the surrounding forest

does not disappear.

The trees stand tall.

The grass still grows lush.

Animals make a home

and the birds a nest.

If I close my eyes,

the forest remains;

it lives.

As does this forest of love

I keep hidden

within the parts of me,

where light has no reason to travel.

It grows still, for the ways of nature,

life and the sun,

though easily perceived,

are seldom accepted.

The Lilac Sky

‘The Lilac Sky’

I seek the path that

takes me through

the lilac sky

framed in rose coloured glass,

to the road beyond

the limits of the eternal sun.

I seek the universe within you,

that something, which

you seek in me;

the light catching fire

in your eyes

and the dance of a smile

on my lips.

Who is the sea and who am I,

I do not know.

I just know how to flow like the waves,

to and fro.

I flow without question,

I flow without hinderance.

I am destruction.

I am absolution.

I am the cradle of life.

I am a cemetery.

The giver of life

and home to death.

I am. I am. I am

I am beyond thought.

Where comprehension ends,

I begin.

Oh, I could warn you.
I could tell you to walk away
but I know you,
as I know myself,
and I know this
just as well;
you will fall,
oh you will plunge into
the depths of deep dark wells
and valleys stark cold.
You will let your heart break;
you will let it shatter,
bend and mould.
You’ll do it all one time,
then ten times again,
until the torture begins
to seem a sweet strain.
You will do this all
for the love of a man
to which you never
held any claim.

Devil’s Kiss


Mina the Magnificent
Liquid blood simmered
beneath her devil-kissed lips.
Once the temperature raised
two points and a half,
the blood boiled to the surface
as she sucked him in.
Exhaling poison into his lips,
inhaling life while he chokes,
in moments, disappearing
within the wisps of velvety black smoke.
