The moon speaks in glyphs
on the faces of young girls,
where miracles tear
at their souls,
rescue is nigh and
ignorance is bliss.
in the dead end of the red carpet
selling flowers hustling for gold.
These are all kids caught up in the crossfire of circumstances some rarely make it out OK!
What can I say about mirrors
except that some colonialists bought and painted country's with its reflection
or as they would Jo-Kingly recall
Give a monkey a mirror and he will think he's a God
Inspired by John Ward
You'll notice him in the busy streets of Peru, dodging vendors and laughing like the sun.
You'll notice her at a small diner past 2 a.m, lost in thought, melancholy notes on their smile.
You'll notice him on a street corner wearing bold colours and singing about the lives he's lived and the fools he's loved.
You'll notice her on mountain peaks, soaking in the wind with twigs in her hair.
You'll notice him weaving flower crowns and writing in his journals, squinting into the hot sky with dew on his lips.
You'll notice her kneeled on the side of the road, comforting a small animal with the voice of sweet honey.
You'll notice them, dancing at sunset, colours streaking across their face.
You'll notice them running through meadow fields in the early hours of the morning.
You'll notice them laughing like the wind, smiling like velvet, with whispfill sparks in their eyes as they sit by the waves at dawn.
They are the sun and the moon
The sky and the sea
Fire and the ice
They're not likely to tell you who's who,
In fact they're not likely to tell you who they are at all.
But even without the spoken reveal
Even without the clarity of meaning,
When you see them.
My lover he is shameless
He gifted me a watch
But spends his time with someone else
with their eyes
will always be louder
than their words
do they meet in secret
to plan my demise
or are they perfectly evil
on a whim
have never been
this is not on me
May your life stretch out before you
As a rainbow, on which you glide,
In health, joy and happiness.
May you walk
Through fields of flowers,
And see beauty
In the way things are.
May the love I have for you
May there always be
To share love with you,
And wipe your tears away
With their kisses and caring.
May you never make the mistake
Of punishing yourself, or others.
May you be free to
Throw away early conditioning,
Which might separate you from yourself.
Allow the light and wisdom
Which lies deep in your subconscious
To be set free.
May you see your life's purpose
And create and fulfill your destiny,
May happiness be with you always.
You are poison.
You are venom.
You are the villain in my tale.
You are the bully in my life.
You are the nightmare keeping me awake.
You are the monster under my bed.
You are the wolf chasing me in my dreams.
You are all of these things.
And God gave you life and brought you to me.
The way this medicine makes me feel
It’s my reminder that my heads not right
I don’t think like you do
My thoughts are too fast and come with flames
My anger is swirling in there as well
Raging thoughts of self harm
My little pills dizzy those anxious thoughts
Slow them to a less frenetic speed
Put me to sleep and make me dream of peace
When I met you I knew what the end would be
I knew this was temporary at best
People like us don’t get the fairy tale
Happily ever afters are for normal people
You told me all about your past
It was all too easy to predict your future
I accounted for everything in that moment
I accounted for everything except for my heart
I never meant to do this
Why did we fall in love?
At least we had us
Even if just for a breath of time
To anyone who has ever fallen in love with the wrong person
Be patient with me
I’m still a work in progress
Somedays I seem put together
But that paint’s not dry just yet
One day I’ll get this right
