Distraction
CLARYT 2h
How do I cope?,
Without you here,
Do I ****** a million words that have no association to you?,
Do I work my fingers to the bone until I'm too tired not to cope?,
Pistols at dawn with my own thought process,
Who will win?,
You.. You win.. Every time.
You always will

Kiss me there,
Like you would kiss my mouth,

Make it hurt so beautifully,
But make it soon,
I'm craving it, you, us

Stake My Claim
CLARYT Feb 7
If I took a cup of water from the Ocean,
Would it notice?,
I would, I’d know ,
If I stole a snowdrop from the ground,
Would the earth know?,
I would, I’d know,
If I stake my claim over your heart ,
Openly ask before taking,
Will You allow it?,
I stake my claim before you now,
Will you?,
Be mine until the last ocean runs dry,
Until the final snowdrop dies?........

She's evasive at best,
I beg her nightly,
Come visit me, please,

And my mind is too,
I need her here,
I need the velvet pillow of release,
Release from consciousness,
Just one night uninterrupted,
I long for her,
I long for sweet slumber

I know we're on a roll babe,
I love the time we share,
I know you love me now though,
I've yet to travel there,
These voices in my head dear,
They toy with me so much,
I worry you will tire love,
I'm not afraid as such,
Just thinking way too loud but,
My quietened mind is close,
For you have made a promise,
And you, I trust the most,
Just tell me that you love me,
And love my quirky ways,
So we can get to living,
Our next one million days...

Redemption
CLARYT Jan 19
The void I felt before the light,
I begged the moon with all my mite,
I never knew that you were there,
To kiss my face, and stroke my hair,
I thought you were but faint a dream,
I dared to fantasise extreme,
You hovered over me that night,
And when I died, you gave me life,
You're just within my grasp my love,
Can almost taste that velvet glove,
Keep looking forward, right at me,
Don't lose your focus, now you're free,
That sweet redemption we have searched,
Love's a right, we both deserve.......
I love you!

I've cried,
Been denied,
I've sobbed,
And been robbed,
I've been clean,
Been obscene,
But you?,

You have tamed me,
Never maimed me,
You have loved me,
Soared above me,
Freed my sorrow,
Cupids arrow,
Yes, you,

Always have,
Yet I love you,
How is that?,

you violated me,
I was young,
You remember?
What you've done?,

Saw you lately,
Felt the same,
But I'll always,
Know your name,

Winter, dark days,
Many names,
Doesn't matter,
They're all the same,

I have solace,
Take a note,
Someone loves me,
He's my coat,

He's my blanket,
Keeps me safe,
You can do one,
See my face?....

Like a cancer,
Over my shoulder,
That essence had a stab at it,
It failed,
It's my turn, let me be,
It's my turn,
I will succeed where It failed,
I promise to adore,
I swear to nurture,
The gift from the gods,
The gift, it failed to see......
I pray this gift remains with me,
But, it lurks, always, lurks....

Impending Shift

There's a storm brewing,
A shift in air quality,
The prelude to a monsoon,
That hush before the deluge,
But this storm is not headed our way,
This storm, his one will bypass you and I my love,
For this reckoning is heading for those who wronged you,
A reckoning, not of your making, but for your benefit,
Yours and mine, let it be, leave it alone,
And let us begin our transition,
They will emerge unscathed, but told, informed.......

That Dream
CLARYT Jan 7
You know the one,
Where we are wrapped around eachother,
The outside world is but a soft whisper,
A dreamlike state envelops us,
All we see is eachother,
All we feel, is eachother,
Fitting like two pieces of a puzzle,
Loving like two frantic beings,
That dream,
You know the one,
Where we fall into each other's personal space,
And the things we do do eachother need no explanation,
Where nothing else matters,
Nothing else matters,
But you, and I,
That dream....That's the dream I dream tonight...
And always, until I make it our reality...

Floating in this sphere,
But somehow all the gods around us,
Chose to bring you here,
I've never had a lot of friends,
And strived to do what's right,
But this feels like a golden fleece,
You've brought me back to life,
How come the gods chose me for this?,
I don't deserve it surely,
Your love envelops me so much,
You give it out so purely,
I thank them every single day,
For bringing you to me,
And pray you never leave my side,
How come, I'm lucky me?.......

Stare Off

I'm sat here quietly, eating my tea,
My dog is here also, staring at me,
She's just had her meal, so why is she looking?,
She munched at it happily, while I was cooking,
Her eyebrows are raised, and she's sat bolt upright,
She'll raise her paw lovingly, poor little mite,
Or is she just greedy, and wanting it all?,
I should banish her from here, into the hall,
The both of us staring, with gazes so bold,
And while playing this stare off, my tea has gone cold........

Clean off my feet,
And now I'm enveloped by you,
Distracted by the monotony of life,
I missed it, when you drifted in............

Lord Mountjoy
CLARYT Oct 2019
The night was fun,
She felt quite drunk,
The taxi left without her,
She wrapped her shawl,
And shed her shoes,
The night was all about her,

She walked and sang,
Quite merrily,
So unaware of danger,
A shadow showed,
A figure pounced,
She stood to face a stranger,

Her eyes were wide,
She shrieked with fright,
His knife rose up to cut her,
Her throat gaped open,
Her blood flowed downwards,
Her flesh sliced up like butter,

Excitement grew,
He felt the rush,
And moved on to her gut,
His knife took on,
It's own cruel life,
He continued with his eyes shut,

The moon gave off,
An eerie glow,
Blood tasted just like wine,
Another fix,
For lord Mountjoy,
Strolls home to plan next time....

Hedge Witch
CLARYT Oct 2019
She sits at night spinning spells of love and luck,
Splashing over hair, then hiding under rocks,
Chanting affirmations over darkened mirror,
Making talisman with earthly blessings for the wearer,
Waxing moon, waning moon, full or half or crescent,
She will make it go away or teach someone a lesson,
Your deepest wish she'll grant, for that is the hat she does,
She draws upon the ocean tides without a hint of fuss,
But never will she use her power to hurt or mame or ****,
A hedge witch only beckons love, but not against your will,
An alter made from beauty, with the softest female touch,
And vestments worn with good intent, to bring to you so much,
Next time you see a hedge witch, tilt your head and say hello,
As she may help you out someday, and you would never know.

Round silver handle,
Peeking through the crack,
Black light,

Right in the middle,
Light bulb swinging,
From the ceiling,
And all my horrors,
Piled high in stacks,
Like magazines,
Jam packed.

Dip it, your brush,
Into my ***,
And sweep it across my mouth,
Grip it, my throat,
Squeezing your thumbs,
And slowly begin to move south,
Kiss it, my breast,
Taste with your tongue,
Savour the mound with delight,
Sup it, my ***,
Drink from the well,
Make art with me, into the night.

Set to pounce,
He eats your sweet dreams,
Every ounce,
His cloak of nightmares,
Creeping in,
When you feel dodgy,
It begins,
The paranoia,
Endless tears,
The constant sleeping,
Silly fears,
A fresh assessment,
Doctors room,
A new prescription,
Numbing doom,
Your death averted,
This time round,
But with the devil,
You'll be found........

No! Just a dream.. Again.
Always, just a dream

Deception
CLARYT Jun 2019
If only I had known back then,
That you were all hot air,
I would have run away and then,
Washed you out of my hair,

The love we had felt real to me,
You did a splendid job,
Your acting skills were so on point,
But now, you're just a ****,

The plans you made behind my back,
They've all become so clear,
The single pictures you would take,
And have done for a year,

Perhaps it's my fault, I don't know,
I should have seen the signs,
Deception from the one we love,
Just ******  with all our minds......

This very day I was snatched from the edge,
My toes were just teetering over the ledge,
My mind is as clear as a brand new fish bowl,
Yet I made preparations to cease with this toll.

A mixture of chemicals, low mood and fear,
Made me think I no longer want to be here,
While I love all who know me, doesn't prevent,
Stop the world, let me off, I'm done paying rent.

But a voice on the line tricked me into defeat,
Using guilt tactics, promises, lies and deceit,
So I'm back to the lull of survival mode now,
For a while at least, step off the ledge, silly cow...

I Saw A Feather Today
CLARYT May 2019
I was walking along watching only the sky,
When I saw something out of the corner of my eye,
It was floating and dancing with a mind of its own,
And I wanted to catch it, and bring it on home,

It was whiter than snow and was fluffed like a cloud,
"Oh, look at that" I found myself saying, out loud,
I was told as a child, should we see such a thing,
It's our angels, sending a clip from their wings,

A reminder I'm told, Of our loved ones who've passed,
such a feeling it gave me, it was quite unsurpassed,
For to catch such a thing and to hold it with me,
Filled my heart with a glow, and my sorrows set free,

If you see a white feather, try to catch it and run,
Bring it home in your pocket, show it to everyone,
Tell them what it might mean, spread the love and the joy,
I hope mine was my mother, saying "hello, and enjoy"......

You pile of steaming hot crap,

And so I was on the lookout,

Why do you always turn up,
At the most inopportune time?,
Can't you see I'm busy?,
Can't you see I'm content?,

you sneak around leaving black sludge,
Shovelling despair and anguish into my bag,
Making it heavier as the minutes drift,
So heavy, I can't carry it much further,

I see you,I saw you and yet,
There's sweet FA I can do about it,
Other than crouch down and endure the deluge,
So bring it, let's have it,

Because, when you're done,
I may be broken, but alive,
I will be on my knees to be sure but,
I will always get up.. Always......

Recipe For Love
CLARYT Apr 2019
All you need is fair a heart,
And mix that in, with pure of mind,
Sprinkle in romantic thoughts,
And add some love, just use the rind,

You'll need a pinch of *** appeal,
And just a smidge of naughty thoughts,
Room temperature is always best,
For when you take your clothing off,

The kindest words work best this way,
And don't forget to blow a kiss,
And mind your mood as you begin,
And don't forget to make a list,

A candle red, with rose oil rub,
As much as you can muster up,
Mix all of these together well,
Voila!, a recipe for love.....
A very playful take on one of my many love spells..

My Immortal
CLARYT Apr 2019
Yours was snuffed out,
Yanked so rudely from me,
Even before my own life began,
A flash and, what the hell?

All I have are pictures,
Stories, I haVe no scented memories,
No.... Visual comfort etched in my brain,
All I have are vague accounts,

Yet somehow, I feel you with me,
Not all the time but, certainly,
When the bottom falls out,
And I feel spent,

Your face pops right in there,
To be sure, a serene face,
A father's face, a tragically young face,
Too young to be gone,

Yet you are, gone I mean,
But only in person,
You're never gone from my heart,
The man I never knew, yet love,

For in spite of your death,
You gave me life,
What a gift,
I'll never stop speaking your name,
Harry to some, Junior to others, daddy to your sons,
My lovely dad... To me,

That way, you're never really dead, are you?.........??
My father died a young man of 26, when my mother was pregnant with me..
All I have are other people's accounts of him.. And I cling to those accounts, I also speak of him often, and I speak to him.. That way, he's never really gone..

She Loves Me, This I Know
CLARYT Apr 2019
Her ball of fire never ceases to rise for me,
I trust her everyday,
She juggles the two with perfection,
Her ball of white replaces the fire for me,
And between such mind blowing awesomeness,
A sheet of glass it seems,
Glass with ripples and life swimming beneath,
Life, death, renewal, constant,
Her ebb and flow, her to and fro,
Pushing then pulling the tides for me,
Her changing moods, her four main cycles,
All for me, all for me....
And you
Mother Earth, Gaia, the things she does for us, so we can survive,
Please let's stop hurting her..
