Nothing and Everything
I ain't got much for nobody,
I ain't got much of anything.
But I've got you, and that means a lot
Cos you're my everything.

Cry For the Show
I don't often cry,
Because when you ask,
Is when I finally do.
I do it for you.
To show you that you scared me.
To show you that I care.
To show you when you went away,
I was scared that you weren't there.

Going Nowhere
All my friends are going places
Whilst I'm just filling empty spaces
With a lack of talent and dark humour
Consoled with 'You're just a late bloomer'

Rock
I wish someone loved me
Half as much as I love you
Not necessarily even romantically 
As long as thier love was true
I wish I had a shoulder to rely on,
Or that life would leave me be
Instead of throwing hurting hearts
To pile painfully on top of me
I wish I was more than a sister or friend
I wish I was the cure for your pain 
I wish I could take it all on board
So that you'd never feel it again
There are so many things that I wish would be
Most of which won't ever come true
The best I can do to heal your wounds
Is to never stop loving you. 
And I wont, sister.

Longing For Melody
Sing me a song, my sweet love,
Lullaby my broken blues away.
Let me stroke your cool, ivory skin,
And dance my fingers across you, if I may?
Sound me a soulful, tender melody,
As I wishfully long for you in dismay.
I lust to entwine my own tune with yours,
If only I could play.

Where The House Once Stood (a Narrative Poem)
A breeze in the trees,
A wind in the woods,
A holler in the hollow,
Where the house once stood.
A brick in the bracken,
Flames of red on the green,
Wreckage in the shadow,
Where the house had been.
Ceased laughter from the river,
Silence, a horrendous cost,
Of the carnage of the building,
Where the life was lost.
Was it a flame in a furnace?
A fire in a barn?
Arson in the attic?
Whatever, it was done.
They never found her body,
Perhaps she made it out?
No, the fire was inescapable,
She died without a doubt.
The infant in the corner,
Who used to sing and play,
They forgot to warn her,
And so she died that day.
A small pile of ashes,
A slow but steady stream,
Mourners lining up the walk,
Where the house had been.
Tripping through the trees,
Wheezing through the woods,
A pale slight girl was glimpsed,
Where the house once stood.

Literature
Glamorous Guise
Why! The sun doth shine on such a pretty lady,
Of wondrous hair and skin!
But I wonder, if you knocked on Heavens Gate,
Would they let you in?
What secrets do those bosoms hold?
What lies behind those eyes?
Would we find the truth within,
Which your form denies?
Do those slender, gentle hands
Hide a glamorous gun?
Should we be enticed by those full lips,
Or should we turn and run.

Literature
Before Your Time
Dirty brown, let my earth-clod hands take yours,
Grasp me tightly, like winding tendrils on a tree.
Hold on, as I pull you from the dark muddy soil,
Wind your scarred arms with mine, lean on me.
Climb up and out, grab my firmly rooted feet.
Scramble skywards, into my arms open wide.
Shake yourself free of the violent dark  dirt.
Don’t sit in your grave before you’ve died.

Literature
Time Traveller
I’d hold your hand whilst they beat you up,
I’d wipe your tears with my thumb.
And before I departed, back to my future,
I’d say "for Christ’s sake, tell someone".

Literature
A Mother I've Never Known
I’m reaching out into the gap to you,
To the mother I’ve never known.
Love me as you swore you would,
Don’t leave me on my own.
Take me out from the blistering cold
Of being in isolation.
Hold me in your loving arms,
Rescue me from damnation.
You owe me my childhood.
You owe me a living.
I’m giving you this opportunity,
I’m trying to be forgiving.
I’m willing to forget the past,
If you promise to be in my future.
This time we’ll make it last,
If only you would respond.
I’m reaching out into the gap to you,
Wishing for a reply,
But I’m guessing if you had wanted me,
You would’ve never said goodbye.

Flicker in the Dark
Sometimes
When the world is full of darkness
There is a flicker -
A flame.
A flame that could turn into a fire -
In to a blaze -
Into a light.
A firelight that could burn all.
That could eat away the darkness.
That could light the world with flame,
And once gone
Could bathe it in light again.
Could bring it happiness.
You are that flicker,
That flame -
That possibility -
That chance -
That hope -
And you could catch alight,
And eat away my darkness.
Or you might not.
You could be that flame
For me to see.
To give me hope in my darkness,
To hold me through times of trouble,
To guide me through the sea of black,
Until I might find the light myself.

Literature
When The Tide Comes In
And when the tide comes in,
It'll come in by itself,
Cos in your heart
There's no room for anyone else.
And when your boat sails,
And mine is left behind,
I wave good-bye
With a closed off heart and mind.

Watery Lover
And over the lake,
I heard a voice
As soft as butter mellow.
Persuasive and silky,
from the depths
My lover called to me.

Literature
Hope
Somewhere, in a castle old,
In a wood, deep and dark,
By a gurgling stream and
a crackling crone,
In a creaking oak as old as time itself,
Lies a glowing bee.
In a creepy, contorted tree,
By a hysterical brook and a
Screeching spinster,
In a wood that howls by night,
In a castle old and crumbly -  
the bee is hope,
And if we can find it in a
Tree, castle, brook or crone,
We can find it anywhere.
Anywhere at all.

Literature
Sun Dream
Dreams of you and dreams of I,
Were sailing through this dreamers head,
Adrift an ocean in the sky,
Of oranges and subtle reds,
Water-coloured cloudy thoughts,
Blended to a pastel teal,
And offered haven in their ports,
To any dreams I wished were real.
The beauty that this world displayed,
Would feed my ever hungry eyes,
Yet starved they stayed for all the days,
That you were absent from my side,
The Milky-Way above the palms,
The sunrise in a foreign land,
All did fall like shooting stars,
For longing of us hand in hand.
Your natural beauty ebbed and flowed,
Like waves upon my dreamy shore,
Receding tides that never slowed,
Were chased until my feet were sore,
And as the sun lay down to die,
Your face appeared a little while,
And lit my ever darkening sky,
With just a momentary smile.

Musician Poet
I wish I were musician
So I could sing you a song
I wish I were a poet
So I could write you a poem
A poem that sings a song
A song that's written a poem
I wish I were both
So I could sing and write a poetry

Literature
Weapon
Words are the expression of an author,
Their soul and mind which pour forth
Onto the page they write upon, yet
They
Hurt, open the wounds that were so
Carefully sewn shut, only to be ripped
Apart at the seams by a single syllable,
Nothing
More than any other syllable, but so
Much more powerful, like the difference
Between a drizzle and a hurricane.
More
Than the steel razor that brings a red calm,
The red-and-white pills that numb fear,
The tight rope that brings the dark peace,
Because
You don’t understand, because your ego
Matters, but our lives don’t, because what
You have done and what you will do you
Can’t
Imagine, you can’t comprehend, you can’t
fathom. Not until you walk in our shoes,
Until words are no longer used as your
Weapon.

Breaking Apart
The silence stretches softly
as you slumber here in my arms
Perhaps you’re dreaming of me
when I hear you sigh
(and it’s the most beautiful sound I will know)
I can’t tell if it’s sorrowful
or if your dream-self is smiling
but as my tears fall upon your head
as I pray that my shaking body doesn’t jostle you awake
(I’m trying to hold still, my dear)
as I quietly gasp for breath
and hold you just a little bit tighter
(Forgive me)
as I ponder upon the loneliness that we both will face
(I’m sorry)
I desperately wish for one more day
(I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry)
to spend with you and your perfect innocence
to hear your laugh one last time
to see the way you look at me
and to see the way you blush
when you catch me admiring your smile
Farewell, my dear
May you find your happiness without me
And may I learn to live without the light you freely gave

A Daily Dose of Unmethodical, Raw Inspiration
Too far from grace
underneath the golden
watch which sets my pace.
I tread carefully,
but not without haste.
My mind pretends to keep 
up, and as such,
is covered in the 
paste of my past.

Approximately Forever
How long will you be here she whispered one night,
I stared out of the window to the distant moonlight.
Thoughts overtaken by a question now posed,
I held her so close, her eyes tightly closed.
What is a lifetime, how long is a breath,
will it ever be over even as I go to my death.
Then one night she whispered how long will we be here together,
I stared out the window and thoughtfully replied, approximately forever.

I will never be an architect
Because I can’t see the numbers
And they slip from my fingers
Like a dream of flying
In morning light
I will starve to death on dreams

Babygirl's song
And babygirl, I still remember the day you left me alone
You broke all your promises, now I don't seem to have a home
I'm still trying to catch the breath that you fucking stole
You left and now I feel empty deep inside my soul
And babygirl, I'll be waiting if you change your mind
You broke all your promises, but I'm still trying to keep mine
I'm still trying to keep our history inside my head
You left and suddenly I feel oh so fucking dead

An Angel Came For Me
Once upon a wicked time
My angel left me in the vain
Decaying every vital sign
As my soul fell for my bane
But then in the vicious dark
A silhouette with stretched out wings
New sparks of life pounce in my heart
While the graceful stranger sings
The carol's lyrics leave me dazed
Idolizing agony
But to not succumb to waste
I ask her if she came for me
Step for step the distance shrinks
Her lips tell me that I'm the one
That she wouldn't mind my kinks
Suddenly, the veil is gone
As I catch a short-lived glimpse
On my new angel in the shades
Seeing carnage on her limbs
All her feathers are just blades

Literature
Arms Length
I measure trust by the length of my arm,
Thrust out from danger, safe-guarding from harm
The negative space where love might exist
Twixt palms and breast if I didn’t resist.
I measure love by the empty spaces,
By words I don’t read in hearts and faces;
In the silent distances I can run,
And the things that my gentle heart has done.

Poem - Mirror of You
Mirror of You
If I could show you what I see
strength of limb, turn of smile
curves so pleasant to the sight
would you see yourself in these?
mere description is not enough
photos are inadequate
when I attempt to tell the crowd
of the beauty you possess
memory robs the truest form
centered on the focus found
blessings for the mortal soul
when I’m lucky you’re around
no angel sent from heaven high
nor a demon I’d dare entreat
one is from a place I cannot reach
the other would damn my soul
you’re instead the best of all lots
another person of from the earth
perfection where it may exist
flaws where the excitement lives
both in and out, mind and form
emotions pure in their humanity
I’ll share these words as last resort
as a mirror of you to the world.

I do it for you.

To show you that you scared me.
To show you that I care.
To show you when you went away,
I was scared that you weren't there.

With a lack of talent and dark humour
Consoled with 'You're just a late bloomer'
I wish someone loved me
Half as much as I love you
Not necessarily even romantically 
As long as thier love was true

I wish I had a shoulder to rely on,
Or that life would leave me be
Instead of throwing hurting hearts
To pile painfully on top of me

I wish I was more than a sister or friend
I wish I was the cure for your pain 
I wish I could take it all on board
So that you'd never feel it again

There are so many things that I wish would be
Most of which won't ever come true

Longing For Melody
Hopefully, it is hinted at enough within my poem, that you can guess the subject is a piano? I have always wanted to play a instrument, but have neither the commitment nor time, and this reflects my feelings about that.
