white sheets

My soul is trapped in your white sheets We talk of time and things dear your breast half-exposed untouched but dreadfully near The dawn beckons something new taunting, teasing, tempting me away from the comfort of your white sheets a thousand times I’ve turned away from your familiar touch grown cold a strand of hair falls across your tired face …

faith

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 Faith is an invisible force which you cannot see or hear or touch or taste or smell Yet the essence of all we believe cannot exist without faith You have to have faith to believe the sun will rise tomorrow and you will …

what is the answer?

This is a post from beagle’s blog: Out of touch with Iraq Reality We just passed the 3,600 US military personel killed in Iraq mark. I can’t help but think of the children and other family members of those who have died in this war. Today president Bush said this (quoted from the New York Times): “I fully understand that …

her dreams have gone to bed

The wind whispers between raindrops of yesterday’s past the memory of her last kiss fades to black She can see her happiness stagger out the front door into the arms of another perfumed night Her broken dreams have all gone to bed haunted by ghosts of lines left unsaid In the morning she can see the sun hanging wearily on …

farewell to lanzarote

holiday ending eyes feels the blues coming on return to normal — airport blues I have tan bodies no bikinis fading with the sand

more holiday haiku’s

cool blue liquid space making bubbles like the fish breathe underwater — three little sparrows on my balcony stealing bread to start the day

another lanzarote update

There’s something about scuba diving that is both relaxing and scary.  I like the idea of floating in 3-dimensional space and breathing like a fish, but the thought of something bigger than me suddenly deciding I’m a part of its food chain, scares me. Still the joy of diving outweighs the fear. I met up with my dive guide, a …

Lanzarote

Greetings from Lanzarote.  Day number three and I’ve been in serious chill mode and enjoying the time to relax and take in the sun.  My impressions of Lanzarote so far are that the island is a nice place to escape to if you want some piece and quiet.  The beaches and the resorts are not teeming with overzealous noisy holidaymakers, …

I thought about doing some hiking as well, but I don’t feel like lumbering around hiking gear and diving gear for such a short break.  So diving it is! I’m looking forward to escaping this god awful UK weather! It’s freaking July and we …

oblivion (first draft)

Old man saddles up to the bar says I need a liquid transfusion of your best cold stuff It’s the image of her eyes filled up to despise all the stupid little things I’ve done I’m haunted by the sounds of her sobs in the dark when she thinks I’m still asleep I stare at the ceiling and the cracks …

self-actualization

Mthrfckrs better realize, now is the time to self-actualize. – Saul Williams, American Poet Every now and then, I find myself slipping back into the abyss, that place where other people insist on defining me, telling me who I am and who I SHOULD be, according to the standards they mete. And then my old friends, doubt and confusion, take …

chemical attraction

When I need a goodnight’s sleep I mix myself a cocktail Of chemicals There’s a couple of ways To make the mix Either solo or in pairs But by far The sweeter brew Is that made by two All you need is a little Up and down motion A pinch of friction And a dash of emotion Add some heat …
