Favourite Blue Sweater

And fear scratched my throat, a feral creature Nostalgia and panic a pallet of olive and scarlet Diverse in my being leaving me custard flimsy He and his favorite blue sweater, faded and frayed as the time Raven hair damp from the season and that scent, Washing powder, eager cologne and fondness My knuckles breaking

Stop The Shooting Stars

Stop the shooting stars For I cannot wish on them once more At the end of this forgotten street Where dreams and stars shall never meet Stop the shooting stars From fizzing from the dark sky Stop the shooting stars from gleaming in the eyes Of couples holding hands so tight and children gazing in

Again

I messed it up again I felt you slip away like ice and then I’m talking to the moon again, ‘cause you can’t see The simple words I cannot speak I messed it up again My form a silent cloud of thorns and when You try to clasp my hand again, I always struggle free

Take me to the sea

The ocean calling pulls me from my grimy city dream, a mirage of cerulean depth Stumbling blindly towards the shore, a magnetic pull of my sign Weary limbs alive in liquid sapphire, an aqua medusa born to join them Each strand of hair a rainbow on the glittering surface worshipping the sunrise The shimmers play,

Vanished
