My muse has left me…

My muse has left me…

My muse has left me
It thought itself free
It wonders the world
Having forsaken me

Carried away
On a wish and a prayer
Looking for answers
Found god know where

Bound but still separate
In heart and in mind
My muse will return
With love in good time

Hourglass

Trying of playing ifs or ands
Watching the glass run out of sand
Time is foremost on my mind
Pages turn and years unwind
Tomorrow is gone, no more is the light
Anguish unbarring, the struggle, the fight
Decisions will come, time will seem brief
Taken away by the words of a thief

Decisions

Decisions

A fleeting ball of gossamer
Floats precariously on the wind
My soul’s sanity is dependant
On sticking a needle in
I’m no tower of strength
Built so tall and compelling
I’m not a font of love
There is no joy over welling
The line will end with me
Not drift infinite into space
It will never be the right time
The right person or the right place
Hopes are dashed here daily
Don’t come here to have your tears quenched
Truth cleans brighter then cleanser
Lesser emotions must be benched
So gird your loins and enter
Don’t be surprised when I say
I will not lose my center
There, at least, you have no say.

Within

Within

Passion ignited by lust
Burns quickly and brightly
But never lasts for long
To sustain love, you need more
You need intimacy
More than carnal knowledge
To know each other
Inside and out
Without a touch
Without a word
Within

Questions

Questions

If I forgot your name…
       Would  the wind whisper it back to me?
       Would the stars light it in the skies?
       Would the seas spill your secrets?
If my heart forgot to beat…
       Would you breathe my breath for me?
       Would you cradle me in your arms?
       Would you share your life in my veins?
If the world were to end tomorrow…
       Would air still move through the land?
       Would fire still burn?
       Would our tears quench the parched earth?

Chronology

Chronology

This temple…
Will never be rebuilt
Its passages are permanently obstructed
There is no treasure to plunder
No wonders to explore
Leave it to crumble
To fall to ruin
One day…
It will be a wonder
The unpassaged temple
The unplundered treasure
But until that day
It is simply a building
A blight on the landscape
Perhaps we should
Demolish this temple
Give history…
A place to start

Idiom

Idiom

When making folly in the name of art
Do you reveal your hidden heart?
Like every child has a toy
That brings to them a world of joy
There is one place where troubles start

Jealousy plays a major part
Without which wisdom we can impart
It all seems like a hidden ploy
When making folly in the name of art

The story needs a brand new start
Take heed and remember, play your part
It’s a life that most enjoy
No one wants to maim, destroy
But when making folly in the name of art
Repetition reveals the darker heart
