Why I Love You.

You walk a line that nobody else does

You see what others cannot

Your perception and attraction to truth

Emboldens you

Ignoring fear

But feeling it none the less

Bravery and compassion in the moments that really count

As playful as a puppy

(I hope this never changes)

Embracing the ridiculous

You throw off inhibitions

And dance in the street

High on life and living in the moment

Intelligence and wit

Combined with vulnerability,

They smash together creating explosions of sensitivity and passion

Everything you apply is done fast and furious

Fuelling my passions

You are my muse

You calculate while I philosophy

You feel everything

And understand easily

You cannot be swayed easily

Yet you know when to humbly concede wrongs

The perfect mixture of pride and humility

Why do I love you?

How can a woman stand against you?

You smash my barriers

Despite my resistance

A crumbling sappy mess

You are the form of my dreams and the prescription from the universe

Siblings

Eternally bound by a marriage of blood

Forced to spend a life time with persons who feel free to offer their opinions with out invitation

Unlimited

Normal bounds are crossed and left upon the stoop

Some become eternal friends and soulmates

Whilst others use military strategies to bomb and destroy

Mortal enemies

Attack and retreat

……………………… Attack and retreat

The ultimate competitor

And the cheapest of friends

The keeper of expectations

The betrayer of all secrets

The comforter and the abandoner

I shall call you Sister or Brother

I will protect you like no other

Cascades

Faraway above the precipice

Sunlight sharpens the water

Blades and shards flash like sharpened steel

The sun and water are the great Illusionist with his Assistant

They collide together on stone and sand

Crashing together like a Giant smashing glass


Monster

I strain to hear it

Humming faint as my own heart beat

Gentle

Constant

Calling me

Like a smitten sailor to sirens and the vicious rocks

Gnashing at me with vicious teeth

I hold out my hand to it

I know the risk

I reach for it anyway

Desire to tame it

Out weighing the dangers

Let me tame you fierce monster from the depths

With all the rocks the wind the dangers and the risks

Let me lay my hand upon your head

Calm the fires from your belly

Be the dragon that stays itself

Be powerful and larger than life

Hold your strength with dignity and ferocity

People know not to stand against you

I look you in the eye

The gnashing ceases

The sirens song is silenced

Finally we stand as one

Equal

Eye to eye

The vibrations and hum

Filling our bodies

Now, I can caress your face

I hold it in my two hands

I kiss your cheek

Finally

Friends at last.



New Resolutions (Despite the Cliché)


Nothing stands in my way

But I drag false things into my path

Neediness

Rejection

Like stones piled before me

I build

Holding myself back

Overwhelmed by the vast plains of possibility

This year, I shall throw down one stone at a time

I hold a chisel and mallet in my hands

A shovel lies by my side

I will seek out the things that hold me back

Fear shall not shackle me this year

Determination

Confrontation

Love will be set aside for now….. an incurable romantic …… it will never be far from my mind (smiley face)

But ambition…..

YES!!

The blue prints are drawn

Time to start building

Onwards

Upwards

Sometimes settling a little

But never going backwards.

New Years Eve 2018

Zeus speaks this year, “I will celebrate the turn of the year by  lighting up the sky with my own works.I shall remind humanity about their frailty and simplicity.”

I feel the hairs rise upon my neck

As static as the sky

As hot as the earth

As cold as the wind

Mans fireworks pale

My life I consider at risk

I ponder my death

But my house is a mess

…..not tonight Zeus

Bats scream in the air as their desperation to feed is mixed with terror by the forces that surround them

Is it war??

Bats appear like bombers in the sky

Backlit by lightening that causes them to scream in terror … or excitement?

Vampires also spring to mind

But even they wouldn’t risk the sky tonight

 

I await to hear festive fireworks from the little town

But they have been cancelled tonight

A couple of illegal crackers are heard

The authorities refuse to light their own

They smell litigation in the air

 

Zeus it is your stage tonight.

You are The Spectacle!

….Are you dancing or mad?

People fake normality,  they place their lives into the hands of the gods as they try to go about their way, pretending not to be afraid.

 

Come the New Year

I bid you welcome

As Hope springs eternal for Love, Health and Possibilities.

 

 

 

 

 

Surrender

Feet are planted

Eyes look up

A small white hankie

Waving Gently

All the weapons

Upon a heap

The queen

Throws her crown

To her feet

An Empire bare

Ready for the taking

No questions asked

She comes without armour

Bending the  knee

Accepting her Fate

Patiently waiting for the opening of the gate.
