We Have To Live

We have to live

In this darkened world.

We have to live

In this lightened world.

Despite the horror and the lies

The torture and the murder

We have to live

In this darkened world.

Despite the hatred and the bile

The evil and the rage

We have to live

In this lightened world.

Despite the angst and the vengeance

The fury and the bloodlust

We have to live

In this darkened world.

Despite the hubris and the bluster

The othering and the smothering

We have to live

In this lightened world.

Despite the bigotry and the vitriol

The crowing and the ignorance

We have to live

In this darkened world.

Despite the gore and the slaughter

The rottenness and the stench

We have to live

In this lightened world.

Despite the vileness and the vanity

The twisting and the spinning

We have to live

In this darkened world.

We have to love

We have to listen

We have to give

We have to live

We have to dream

Unknot our troubles

Spill hot tears

Dispel cold fears.

We have to see

We have to hear

We have to touch

We have to taste

We have to feel

Discover the flow

Unroll our hands

Make love below.

We have to live

Nourish the beauty

Cradle the surprise

Travel through sex

We have to reach

And be together

And see the light

In this wounded world.

We have to live

We have to live

We have to live

In this lightened world.

Two

Two hands
Two hearts
Two minds
Two silences
Two bodies
Two laughters
Two souls
Two passions
Two visions.

The tracks
Of all the earth
For living.

Two spirits
Two travellers
Together.

L’Amour

Love is the only thing one should live for.
Love is the only thing one should consider.
Love is the herb that soothes ancient sorrows.
Love is a wave that carries us to new worlds.
Love is warmth for the jaded soul.
Love is a hat to be worn in all seasons.
Love is light illuminating the darkness.
Love is fire, linking heart to heart.
Love is an ocean in which happiness swims.
Love is the sun, the moon, the wind, the stars.
Love is time dissolved in laughter.
Love is touch healing old scars.
Love is a smile greeting a smile.
Love is a charm, the way to stay calm.
Love is fragrant, freshened by passion.
Love is care, bathed in devotion.
Love travels far across seas and lands.

Wouldn’t it…?

Wouldn’t it be lovely if we lived by bridges instead of walls? Wouldn’t it be lovely if we acted out of love instead of hate? Wouldn’t it be lovely if we didn’t discriminate in any shape or form? Wouldn’t it be lovely if we saw the good instead of the bad? Wouldn’t it be lovely if we spoke tenderly and not callously? Wouldn’t it be lovely if peace rather than rage was the answer? Wouldn’t it be lovely if we could rise and rise and not despise? Wouldn’t it be lovely to forgive and rest? Wouldn’t it be lovely to picture the best? Wouldn’t it be lovely to live in bliss? Wouldn’t it be lovely to seize the thread? Wouldn’t it be lovely to stay undead? Wouldn’t it?

We Only Have The One Life #2


We only have the one life,
Why the fever and the fret?
When our duty is to love
And kiss before sorrows set.

We only have the one life
To touch and explore and dream;
Body revealed, mind-lamps lit,
Tanned in the unceasing gleam.

We only have the one life
To get naked in the sun,
Shorn of gaudy dress,
Hardened shells undone.

We only have the one life
To breathe and think and fuck;
Goodness within our grasp,
Riches won, wonderstruck.

We only have the one life,
So no need to drown and frown;
Joy is there to be savoured,
If wanting looks up not down.

Forever

We can only live in the moment
Forget past sorrows, dismiss ancient
Pains, look to tomorrow, smile.
Rise,  dance, kiss your lover,
Create beauty, follow the sun.
Make love, sigh,  revel in the wonder
Of it all.  Now is now is now is now.
The past is a land of closed borders
Time to follow our natural orders.
The impulse burns bright, why crouch?
Stand tall, savour the music, the world
Alive with rich possibility, spinning,
A globe of gladness waiting to be caught.
We can only live in the moment,
For death’s date is coiled like a snake.
The strike can arrive anytime, unexpected,
Expected, a sudden surprise, a lingering
Event. So live the life you want,  let your
Senses unfurl, a glorious canvas absorbing
New memories, the tenderness of touch, Secrets unlocked. Dance through the sorrow,
Unshed your baggage, travel light, walk
Onwards into a future, blossoming,
Fresh heights.

Love Letters

1)

Stillness descends

The faint hum of bees

Circling the flowers,

You engulfing me.

 

2)

I love you for your style,

Nothing less, nothing more.

 

3)

You make me happy.

Happy as summer,

Bursting with colour.

 

4)

No need for words

Just the wind and the murmur

Of your touch.

 

5)

A golden dawn

Nurtured in tender kindness –

Open to love’s breeze.

 

6)

Moonlit magic

On the cusp of loving –

Words ripple and sway.

 

7)

From night’s fragments

Brokenness healed afresh-

Whispers made whole.

 

8)

That sense of joy that comes from the unexpected gift

Never diminishes.

 

9)

I remain astonished by the brilliance of your light, a firefly in the

Midst of life.

 

10)

Nothing can ever fall into place until we touch each other with our

Bodies and our minds.

 

11)

That moment when the world slips away and all my senses focus upon

You, repeats itself as the hours tick by.

 

12)

Even in those moments of quietude, the conversation is sparkling, a cup bursting with exuberance.

 

13)

Your love, pure as the Summer sky, ripe as Autumn fruit, fresh as the

Winter dawn, fecund as Spring’s growth, invigorating as the sea breeze.

Your love, potent and potable, undying fire.

 

14)

Feeding upon your light, the sweet mysteries of earth are eternally replenished.

 

15)

In the space between night and day, there you blaze, burning away the haze.

 

16)

The music of your voice holds me in thrall.

 

17)

Scatter the past, serenade the present, and dance along the emerald path into a luminous future.

 

18)

Unfurl your hand

And understand

That love travels

From land to land.

 

19)

Open the window and hear earth’s spirits singing of transcendent sex.

 

20)

Don’t cry for the past that has flown,

Love lives in a place to be known.

 

21)

Your voice on the mountain,

A sacred fountain;

Your laughter in the trees,

Lightened by the breeze.

 

22)

We meet in our minds and our flesh,

See how the world glistens afresh.

 

23)

What I love

Is to sit

With you

Stare, simply

Smile.

 

24)

Love bubbles

A wellspring

Of wonder

Soaking

Body and soul

Restored

New dawn.

 

25)

Only your love to scatter the sorrow,

Only your joy to welcome the morrow.

 

26)

You never forget those moments that make you smile,

A blanket of peace enveloping the soul.

You never forget the laughter and the tears,

The lighted hopes of the eager heart.

You never forget the touch and the loving,

Renewed by joy, kindred visions.

 

27)

Let’s grow young together.

 

28)

The night it shines so bright

Our love gives breath to light

The day it gives us space

To revel in all this grace.

 

29)

Let’s feast on all the joy there is to savour.

 

30)

Gratitude is the glue that keeps me entwined with the spirit of you.

 

31)

I want to give you

My self unadorned.

I want to taste you

Within and without

I want you.

 

32)

No more words now – let’s kiss and swim in this lake of togetherness.

 

33)

Riding the sorrows

Stepping here to there

Luminous visions

Coming up for air.

 

34)

I want to kiss the dew from your thighs.

I want to see you shiver with surprise

And watch hope waltz through the frontiers.

 

35)

Your beauty

Shimmers

Like a butterfly

Gilded by the sun

Lightness undone.

 

36)

Wandering through this glittering world

Wondering when we can just kiss and curl.

 

37)

From sea to mountain, you are my fountain.

From valley to peak, you are my heat.

 

38)

You never forget those little acts of kindness.

Like moments of stunning splendour, they stay

Etched on the heart forever.

 

39)

Beauty is the song I know

Beauty is the way to go

Beauty is beneath and above

Beauty is the print of love.

 

40)

In the deep midwinter, when darkness is at its deepest, consider

The spark waiting to be found.

 

41)

The hour it gives us time

To see our bodies rhyme.

This beat where we belong

As words slide into song.

The years spell a tune

Invoking earth and moon.

The terror falls away

In amorous array.

 

42)

What matter seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, years – when all of time flows towards thee?

 

43)

I gaze and gaze at your unquenchable thirst, a blossoming ready to burst.

 

44)

Turn the page and we’ll pen a story studded with stars and loveliness.

 

45)

Love is like tea,

A warming way to serenity.

 

46)

Knowing you live upon this earth fills me with unfettered zest.

 

47)

Numerous are the ways in which I am joyously uplifted by your presence.

 

48)

Wherever I step, memories glow in the sky – they never fade.

 

49)

In daylight and twilight, this desire pulses bright.

 

50)

The kindness of your smile is what keeps me from sinking into the abyss.

 

51)

I quiver beneath your hungry lips.

 

52)

This heart rises on the wings of desire,

Strengthened by love’s incandescent fire.
