Deep Sea Blues

His shipwreck haunts me tonight, a waking lullaby I’m obsessed and it summons me down to play My dress vanishes into treacle blue, anchor heavy Pearls glide from me, an eternal translucent loop “There’s nothing for you down there” but he’s waiting With cerulean kisses and that long familiar touch His cobalt kingdom envelops me

Nightingale

Nightingale, how much gold, to own your sugared song? A melancholy lullaby that lulls me to my slumber long Nightingale my gilded cage is waiting here for you With sweetened almonds, crystal spring and milky honey dew Nightingale I promise you, I’d adorn you when you sing A ruby ring upon your claw and diamonds

The Last Visit

And he knelt at the graveside clawing at the crimson dirt Was misery ever so wretched? Or silence so gnawing? The earth as thirsty and fruitless as his soul without her The tender roses dried up, their pinks a brittle unloved russet And he spoke, demanding his answers from them Words uttered, a singsong mantra,

First World Christmas Tree

  Place the last gleaming dewdrop on my soaring snowy tree. Pristine white, pearl strands catching the peaceful candle light Candy canes hanging from the twinkling feather boughs My Christmas castle, it’s buried deep in a flurry of parcels Place the bright guiding star on my sweet snowy tree Tiffany jewels a world away from

Down By The Riverside

  Down by the riverside, hides all the white lies By the muddy bank he stood with bloody hands and ruined suit Down by the riverside, hides all the white lies His reflection locked and murky is not the prince in her fairy story Down by the riverside, hides all the white lies For in

Will You Wait

Will you wait for me when the Autumn moon is blurred in the olive river When the leaves have died and I’m not by your side to kick them up together Will you wait for me when the storm bears down and you tremble in the street In your thin blue sweater with no umbrella

Fragments of Her

They eyed her, wandering abandoned in the darkness She, a guiding light where the two paths merged Their white princess, leader of the sacred armies Naked feet tenderly absorbing the ferny floor And as a dappled deer she sensed her fragility The feathery touch of the breeze told her they had come It grazed her
