Defloration

She told me she was a virgin
She had never heard poetry before
So I put on my best suit
And laid rose petals on the floor
Held her by the hand
And told her dont be scared
It might hurt in the beginning
But thats just normal
Don't rush, take your time
Or you'll just ruin it
The trick is to listen with your heart
And let it move you
Hear each syllable
In the rhythm of your heart beat
Like each word was written
Just for you
Exhale only after each sentence
Inhale at the beginning of the next
Breathe life into inspiration
And inspiration into life
Poetry isnt for the celibate
It can take your innocence
As quickly as it can return it

She told me she was a virgin
She had never heard poetry before
And wanted her first time
To be memorable
So I set up a candlelit dinner table
Had the moon and the stars as audience
As words did the moonwalk on the milkyway
I was but the vessel
Through which they spoke
Words too heavy for my lips to carry
Offered up to the wind
Sacrificial poems to the slaughter
To woo this maiden's heart
A courtship to last a life time
A beautiful walk in the park
That sometimes turns to a storm
A performance once witnessed
You can never be the same again
Poetry is beautiful
Brutal
And unforgiving

When Prayer Isn't enough

When faith isn't enough
They turn to
Sleight of hand gimmicks
To grab your attention
Jedi mind tricks
To keep your affection
While you pray
Their hands are deep
In your pockets

Keeping you hostage
With threats of
Eternal burning infernos
And promises of prosperity
That lie at the end of the rainbow
Exploiting your need to believe
Your priceless search for meaning
Reduced to 10% of your paycheck
While these so-called prophets
Are knee-deep in blood,sweat and tears money
Prayers on the back of bank notes
Broken backs
Held up by illusion
Smoke and mirror sermons
By prophets trying to be God
Misleading the ones trying to find God
So hungry for the truth
That they would eat up anything
That almost looks like it...

When Prayer isn't enough
They'll promise you riches
When all you are looking for
Is God

Right through me

After each
Momentary stare
Each second
That seems to last
Longer than it actually is
You
        See
Right
         Through me...

Today

Today
Is one of those days
When I realise
How much
I truelly love you
And looking into your eyes
Is my favourite
Pastime

FIRE BREATHERS

When the fire breathing men
Were done
All that was left
When the smoke cleared
Were the charred remains
Of open mics
And the deafening silence
Of the truth seeking speakers
The smell of burnt spirits
Lingered
In the air.......

Your eyes

I take deep breathes
everytime I look  into your eyes
Because there in lies
All my weaknesses
The stories untold
The dreams never revealed....

I need to learn

I guess
I need to learn
That the peace
Doesn't last forever
The moments are few
And far between
And as fleeting
As shooting stars
Sometimes...
Just as elusive

I guess
I need to learn
That happiness
Is not all roses
With its beauty
Its brings thorns
Storms
And grey clouds
Its not 
Always sunshine

I guess
I need to learn
That happiness
Lives within all of us
And there
Is hope in tomorrow
When we 
Find happiness
Somewhere
In our sorrow!

Rollercoasters

I never liked rollercoasters...
The thought
Of one moment being stationery
The next you speeding off
To a dizzying height
Upside down
Then flung back up right again
Was just too sickening
They always gave me stomach cramps
And made me puke
I never liked rollercoasters....
Emotional ones too

You are Daddy

We were playing hide and seek
Find me - hug me
When she squeezed her cheeks
Next to mine and asked
"Daddy whats this?"
To which I replied
"Its a beard nana,
Daddy has a beard
'cause he is a boy"
She smiled
And looked at me confused
Then she chuckled
As if she had figured it out
As if I was trying
To pull a fast one on her
And said
"No, you are not a boy
You are daddy"
And with those word's
She stole my heart again....

Maybe I will find answers.....maybe

Maybe if I write it down
It will make sense
Maybe i'll know
Maybe I wont
But I can then say
At least i tried
Because heavy breathing
And crying doesn't help anymore
The tears
Only soak the pillows
And my heart remains heavy

Maybe if I write it down
It will make sense
I dont know why we always argue
Or why screaming
Doesnt make me feel better
I dont know
What we argue about
Or what you say
When you shout
My words bounce off walls
And my heart remains heavy

Maybe if I write it down
It will make sense
Why I love so hard
What I did for love
And what it does for me
And continues to do to me
How love keeps me sane
And how it drives me to the edge of madness
How its both "the calm"
And "the storm"
My ink
Sinks only in paper
And my heart remains heavy
