Blue Cinderella Rock Song

Poetry

Flying crazy  And loopy sounds  Those loony tunes  House breaking moulds  Silver tights  And bright blue shoes  A light of fancy  A daring spy    A ruthless dream  A tearful song  A seamstress  Stream  Ten hours,  Gone  You’ll never text  Too sad,  Too bad,  Forget, forget  A fearless sight  Smells of ashes  Speed of light  True singalong  Tap dancing night  To loony tunes  A daring spy  A flight of fancy,  A seamstress  Stream  Too mad […]

Sea Salted Skin

Poetry

Your bright materials I will never forget The love The scent The hugs Those kisses The ones You owed me Yet never returned That icy, shadowed Bridge you never Dared to cross Fearing it would Crumble Under Your Feet Lest your soul Fill the river in Drowned sorrow Before wearing That suit Sea Salted Skin Too self-enchanted With those sonnets, second-guessing Our exchanged verses, Doubting The authenticity Of these free rhymes Yet the image Of […]

The Sound of Silence

Poetry

Don’t dare speak up Repeat with me Milady sleeps Fast-forward streams Solarium nights Lavish details Siren-tailed corpse Breaking the silence The sound of deathbed Amnesic smile Subtle, sublime, Such inner fight The prima donna That got the part She was no singer! Her saddened rhymes Lady in waiting She’s held at bay Translucent playground Far, far, away No-one’s an angel A gusty room But don’t be fooled Breaking the silence One sleepy mirage Got only […]

Untangled And kind, All bewitched And profound Like a poet Gorging […]

I feel I love I grieve, For your dark Materials Forever Buried Six feet under, Preserved In amber Safely within the Deep and tangled Confines of old Cinematic streams I feel I love I grieve, For your dark Materials Forever Buried Six feet under, Preserved In amber, Safely within the Deep and tangled Confines of those Bloodied dreams I feel I love I grieve, For your dark Materials Silenced are Those words For fear Of […]

Stony Silence Fighting Light Voice enchants Like a crystal Sunset Gone, To the point Of no return Smiling Without A smile, And, While smiling, Wavering, Wondering, Like a crystal Sunset Gone, To the point Of no return Slides away, She won’t Decay Like a crystal Sunset Weakened Word Womb, Breaking Waves Smiling Without A smile And, While smiling, Waiting, Wandering, Gone, To the point Of no return She won’t Decay, Under purple Dusk, She slides […]

A night at the opera She had not yet had Philistine poet Blasphemous, mad Oh my good lord My mamma did play Full blast Nessum Dorma At my father’s wake She may not have known The story in full, Yet surely she could - Caress tenor wool The whole church Went silent - All but for Mum’s cries The music Went dormant My dad Reached the sky And what she all wanted - That music […]
