Fragments

I dreamed a memory as clear as day
But forgot on waking till this daysnight
As words found home and lifted a fog
Instantly transported to sleeping insight

I know it well for it plays on repeat
No words but their lack silence complete
Barely seconds then gone with a wish
To lift uncertainty not leave with a kiss

So why then the dream of deja vu
Without a twist to brighten the tale
Only a torture I’ve lived many times
A singular reminder of how loves fail

Choices

 

 

Choices choices choices

None made

None kept

None known

Choices choices choices

One step

One loss

One home

Choices choices choices

Too soon

Too far

Too hard

Choice choices choices

All gone

All left

All scared

Too Long In The Dark

I wanted to believe
That hope didn’t lie
I was never deceived
True love couldn’t die
And for all my failings
Though I know I’m blind
That smile sent me sailing
But that smile isn’t mine
In a second I was torn
Not in choice but in torment
I saw my hope as forlorn
What still remained of fate spent
So what then is left to say
When ones dreams are broken on rocks
And no matter how hard you pray
Your face will not hide the shock
Left alone just too long in the dark
What sparks now and then never makes flame
And though we may reminisce about the start
It seems that time will never come again

stolen hours

Did it show or was I able to hide

Beneath the laughter behind the smile

Neither forced or in anyway untrue

A feeling I know well when I’m with you

The moment my heart broke in agonising pain

A moment I would live a thousand times again

It was always a folly of my own invention

A pain I caused so will never mention

A scream that deafened contained in my head

Threatened to overwhelm refused to relent

Ignored by shear will shut down at its source

To enjoy the hours that long consumed my thoughts

I have never known such a smile and eyes that laugh

Able to lift my soul in an instant obliterate any shadows I feel cast

For those hours I would sacrifice all

Without thinking I would happily fall

Because at its core I know only this

Those stolen hours are a granted wish

 

 

Missing you

For those moments that now will pass

Without you smile without your spark

I wish words back that once were said

To remain in silence locked in my head

For once freed they could not be ignored

To live as we were to live as we should

An invisible line forever now drawn

Between us in present the past now gone

Though as then they still hold true

Those words of love those words that flew

But maybe contained in an ignorant bliss

I would be saved the pain of what I now miss
