Untitled Poem

It's a plain dreary rain
I watch from my window pane
It's time for moving on
But I'm stuck here with the pain
Time is fleetly flying
And patience has me sighing
I've waited here so long
Just knowing this and crying
You left me here forever
My heart about to sever
My life is barren, I withdrawal
I've lost my only tether

Sherlock's Suicide Note

To be VERY, VERY, VERY clear this is an Alternate Universe where Sherlock Holmes has feelings for John Watson and has NOTHING to do with BBC, Hartswood Studios or Mr. Cumberbatch, Mr. Freeman or Ms. Abbington! I love them all in the roles and I do not want the inevitable Canon conculsion to Mary Watson. But this was a contest that I entered and had to withdrawl from and it was to interesting to leave sitting in a drawer. Cheers!

John,

I don’t write poetry.
But I do excel in meter.
I wanted to text you.
But I wanted to make it clearer.
You went off with Mary.
You have your own new life.
I have nothing to here to keep me.
My days are filled with strife.
Cocaine was my addiction
Until you came along,
And now the rhyme is flowing
This is rather like a song
I’ve lost all sense of meaning.
You were all that was good.
I think I’ll take a swim now.
I hear the Themes is good.

Some Scraps of Poems

From now on I need to steel myself from the darkness,
My hard choices need to come swiftly now
One follow another in rapid succession
Time has come to rise to the action and make bold statements
Not always the popular decisions to bear the burdens
A life of single blessedness is a cursed choice
What is necessary is right in God's eye and mine


Staring through crisscrossed eyelashes
Looking for courage in diminutive frames
Time will come soon enough
When light explodes through shattered seconds
Experience the feeling of fractured repose

My Past

My past

A dark corridor
Is where eternity lies
Wrought with sorrow
Pain and Sighs,
You bright up my life in
Like the sun in mid June
Like the sky fills the moon
An illusion of an oasis
You go and disappear
The sorrow in my ribs
Again begins to sear
I guess I’ll never know
The treasure I have found
Until it disappears,
Without trace or sound
The light up ahead
Will guide me home
Never again shall I forget
Where I‘ve come from

Vows

Vows
All anyone can ask
Is to give you all can,
To try not lie,
And to love with all your heart and soul.
To vow to be faithful
Is a large part of what is wrong with this world
We expect too much
Then are upset when it falls apart
Just don’t flaunt them in front of me.
Don’t get trapped.
Be careful.
I don’t want a fixer up model.
Anyone who goes into a relationship
Intending to change someone
Ends up
With disappointments and heartaches
The only person you can count on changing
Is you.
So go into love with your eyes open,
And never end up
With your heart in pieces on the floor.

Comet

Oh my bright and burning star
Some would stay you’re falling
It’s just that you blaze so radiantly
The Earth has turned her back on you
You have a path, a steady course
Returning to give us bliss
Never altering your initial trail
Although we may not see its plan
Some may see a heart of ice
Some may see a trail of fire
I see a journey half completed
And the future yet to come
