Undercover love

Under the covers we were loving

Outside in the world I was nothing,

Two ships passing on a beautiful night

When we saw each other we fell in love at first sight,

Everything we did was so amazing

Everything was good as we sat star gazing,

Under the sheets

We were everything

But on the streets

Our eyes didn’t even meet.

We lived in different worlds

And they say the twain should never meet

We came from different parts of society

But when we met the connection turned to heat

Our passions over took us and we took it to the peak,

Under the sheets

We were everything

But on the streets

Our eyes didn’t even meet.

I wonder, what you do when we’re apart

I wonder if our love, is written in the stars

I wonder where this is going now,

Is this going nowhere because its not allowed

Because if others knew then they would wear a frown

So we act like strangers when we walk around town.

Under the sheets

We were everything

But on the streets

Our eyes didn’t even meet.

Embrace that which can’t be taken

Losing everything is hard to take

But certain things can’t be taken away

Like dignity and humility

These aspects of life are vital to me

Compassion and tolerant natures

Are what we need to keep

And being kind and sharing equally

All this can’t be lost only given away

All this gets forgotten in life today

All these precious qualities fade to grey

In a world that has forgotten love always overcomes hate

Because power is the greatest thing that no one can take

And it is not something anybody can fake

And those who share put the greedy to shame

For these people fight to help the needy each day.

Selling my soul

Selling my soul for cash

Selling my integrity to get by

Doesn’t appeal to me,

Exploit what I think and believe

Doesn’t sit easy with me

But I am in real need

I am bleeding from a wound that won’t heal

I am haemorrhaging money

And its a pain to me

Because money is like a disease

Infecting us with debts we dont need

So how how do we break away

Do we comply and play their game?

Or do we regail against it time after time

I find it hard to simply get by

But selling my soul seems wrong

What I got you cannot buy

Integrity or is it just foolish pride?

Am I about to fall and lose it all?

It’s hard to know but what’s to lose

When you have nothing anyway

What is it they can do to add to the pain

Of the harsh life of scrimping and scraping to get by

I’d like to know

Do I stay true or do I sell my soul?

Whirlpools and vortexes

Whirlpools and vortexes

Drawing me in

But I tread carefully in between

Colours are bright

And they are abounding

My spirit self

Is leaving my body

Aspects and fragments

Of who I am

Slip in and out of view

And my heart is pounding

In this cosmic dimension

This kaleidoscopic dream

This is a journey

Through astral travelling

I dice in a vortex

And I am assailed by visions

Of colourful patterns

And distorted images

And I am sent flying out

And deep down into a vortex

Where galaxies and planets

Are arrayed before me

Then I am suckled at lightspeed

Into a kaleidoscopic theme

Where every colour of the rainbow

Revolves and spins at high speed around me

I rotate head over heels

And spin spiralling down

Only to rise up

And explode into light

I am dismayed like a firework

On a dark ebony night

And as I fly like a pinball

From void to void

From dimension to dimension

I see a conscious flow

Of past and prest experiences

That tested me so

Ending in a warm luminescent glow

That takes root within my soul

And it tells me somewhere in that maze of portals

Is my path to my spiritual home

But will only find it when it’s my time to go

And slip from this mortal coil with love in my heart

And kindness and compassion deep within my soul.

Beautiful day for pondering

Sunshines bright on this Valentines Day,

Though there is a chill breeze when you’re in the shade,

Temperatures high for this time of year,

Has love left you happy or are you in tears?

A perfect blue cloudless sky makes me wonder why

Anybody would ever be down on such a beautiful day

We all should just let love carry us away

We should let our own temperatures rise

And allow our hearts to be open wide

Sitting on a lush green meadowside

Let your passion flow and feel the joy deep down inside

Then later I will stroll along a sandy beach

Feeling its grains between the toes on my feet

Then I sit on rocks staring out at the vast sea

Watching its power as its spray washes over me

I love nature so much I feel deep inside of me

As all this beauty abounds I just and mindfully breathe

I lay back and then I take it easy

Then when others gaze at me and wonder why they don’t see me

Washed away in the spume and carried away

I feel the immense sea take me

And as its suffocating me

It also eases and caresses me

And as I dissappear from life there is no misery

Except maybe for my family

But I needed out from this life so I hope they forgive me

But even in my final moments I give and share love with you all

This act is not selfish at all

I needed to change my story because it stalled

And I’ve ended it so that I can start it once again

On a beautiful day like this it’s a fitting end.

Obscured sight

Fight or flight

Our obscured sight

Leaves limited views

Which we choose

For we never knew

There was more to be seen

Within conscious minds

Awakened and aware

We are far from blind

But instead we realise

That we now are blessed

With insight and foresight

Of which we could have

Only dreamed of

Within our limited belief

That all we see is a there is

But then in your ignorance

You found bliss

And shut out all the possibilities

Of how diverse and abstract

Life can actually be

When you let go of the illusory

And set your mind completely free

To find your true conscious reality

Where you can grow

Within your own creativity

Building a life of positivity

That may see you living out your life

Far more happily.

Toxic ways

Guarded against toxic people

Sometimes we shut good ones out

What can we do when we put up walls

That’s the flaw when you choose

A life of negative rules

To protect yourself against the fear

Of those who may try and assail you

Life you see can be bitter and cruel

And nothing can make you ammune

Except the experience of going through this hard life that brewed

And around us toxic people choose to add to all our pain and stress

But the more we learn how to deal with them

Then we may get a better understanding how to overcome them

With out shutting them out and instilling walls

That serves to divide us one and all

So here is my defiant call

That you will not force me down the same

I won’t play your toxic games

I will rise up once again

Showing my tolerance and kindness each day

That will reflect upon you the stain of your ways

And manifest upon you the shame

That will hopefully change your ways

And us needing to build walls to shut them out will now be saved

And life will seem less depraved

With the ending of these toxic ways.

Critics are suffering souls

People criticise out of habit

A negative trait and they can’t help it

The problems that they wrestle within

They place on us manifesting

The same misery and stress

That find themselves in don’t be duressed

For their focus on you that seems obssessive

Is caused by envy and we should offer them forgiveness

For all they are going through causing them to be this way

Is sad and spiteful in everyway

But they are victims of their own circumstances

And they are suffering from a lack of self love

Being them I guess must be really tough

So rise above their judgement and bitterness

And focus on your bliss within yourself

And find your way to your own happiness

Because as a better person you are blessed.

Valentines day pain

No one understands the pain

Of true terrible loss that flows through the veins

Of losing a child on valentines day

Then ask why you not celebrate

The love abounding on this occasion come what may.

I’ve suffered and still go through this pain

But I still feel love but the hurt won’t abate

It washes over me wave after wave

My heart is broken and my soul can’t be saved

So I blank out valentines day

Because it is simply my worst day

Mh only solace is that the pain that won’t go away

Is all I have left of my baby girl today

Maybe that’s why I won’t let the pain fade

Because I will be left with nothing and so I keep that eventuality at bay.

Creepy tale and nightmare

A shudder in the dark

In a nightmare scene

Trepidation caused

By a howl and a scream

Many understand

This is a frightening theme

Not a nice cosy little dream

But a paranormal horror

That beggars beyond belief

A twisted face and gnashing teeth

Testing your spiritual belief

Fearing all will end in grief

Something wicked lays underneath

Waiting to devour

And feast in your soul

Something hideous

And out of control

Floorboards creak

And old doors groan

Chilling you too

The very maarow of your bones

Wondering what lays in wait next

Just then a garrote

Slips around your neck

Your airway constricts

And your rich deep hot blood flows

And death will follow next

This is a nightmare that will test you yet

You wake up and see the scar round your neck

Proving that you participated and that maybe you are blessed

But don’t get complacent yet

Because you’ve moved from this world into the next.
