Life’s Too Real

Life’s too real on many days,
On those I wish you’d come to stay.
Come to me, come to play,
When life’s too real together we’d escape.
Life’s too real when it really hurts,
But when your here the pain desserts.
When you come joy asserts,
I’m ten feet tall, your armoured sir.
Life’s too real when it’s kicking my arse,
And only you can make that pass.
Giving me the strength, the strength to last,
Protecting me, healing me, with spells you cast.
Life’s too real on days like this,
I wish it’d leave, just go, dismissed.
To be replaced by you in a seismic shift
To make life worth living, the gift you give.

Flickering Leaves

Where does desire go?

I taste it on my tongue

I feel it slide down my throat

It seems to expand my heart

I’m burning up

Flames trapped

And no one can tell

No one can see

This heart of mine

Will I lose her?

Will she forget about me?

Flickering leaves

The secrets shown

The desire revealed

And no one can tell

No one can see

No one that is…

Except me,

And that tree

Summer’s Gone

Summer’s gone, Autumn’s here.

The leaves will turn and fall til next year.

The winter will follow bringing its cold.

We will feel it more, as we grow old.

But spring will come to warm our heart.

Summer once again, where the cycle starts.

This year a blur, so much, yet nothing done.

So slow, yet so fast, this orbit of our sun.

Summer’s gone, Autumn’s here.

Losing precious time, our biggest fear.
