Urge

I wake in a shower
Of light, crying.
You are no longer here.

What shall I do
With these tears?
How can I placate
This ache?

My heart is drenched.
I need to swim.
I need to flow.
I need to bathe

My hopes
In a tide of longing.

The Flare of A Star

A whisper, a word, a call from afar
Tenderness floods the bottomless heart;
Scars take flight and clamour to part,
Minutes quicken in the flare of a star.

If I Could

If I could reach the stars,
Grab a fistful
And give them to you,
I would.

If I could guide the sun
And make it shine
Upon you,
I would.

If I could charm the trees
And tell them to dance
As you walk pass,
I would.

If I could cajole the moon
To send you deep kisses
Steeped in red wine,
I would.

If I could entice the sea
To spell waves
In your name,
I would.

If I could be your duvet
And keep you
Warm at night,
I would.

If I could whisper these words
And make them
Sail across the sky,
I would.

If I could do all these things,
My heart would sing
And that would be grand,
It would.

Winter Sun in Arabia

IMG_2014-0.JPG

On the highway, at the end of day
Tiredness melts in a golden
Moment, washed clean
By the dancing sun.

From deserts of longing,
Greenness flowers, a miracle
Some might say,
Yet I know how signs

Scatter joy and passion,
How gentle is the wind
That bears us on the way.

Christmas Kiss

Underneath the mistletoe,
Longings flutter like the snow,
For know you this pretty Miss,
You’re my sweetest Christmas kiss.

Ardour

Despite the wheels of time,
our love shall always rhyme;
Wherever feet do tread,
with thee my mind is wed.

Keen for the taste of you,
I feast on every clue;
Unlocking ancient pain,
what was is not in vain.

And now I take my bow,
beauty a sacred vow;
Your body feeds my soul,
for desire keeps us whole.

Everything

Nothing is a spear that pierces the heart,

Nothing is the hollow when you depart.

Nothing is a space devoid of meaning,

Nothing is a crutch on which I’m leaning.

Nothing is life shelled of your smooth skin,

Nothing is a trip that cannot begin.

Nothing is a word that smothers the verb,

Nothing is a cloud that light may disturb.

Nothing is pain but within there is this,

Love is everything that feasts on a kiss.
