Yearning

As I search  the roads of this eternal maze

I just find dark corners and more dead ends 

Searching and searching  to ignite the blaze

With short term lovers or just good friends
Where is the love I am yearning towards

To worship my body and cherish my mind

The soul mate, lover, giver of rewards

The man to care for this heart in kind
 I know that  love is a two way process

Give in order to recieve: I understand

Love unrewarded  no forward progress

As I travel the maze on roads of sand
Hopeless it feels, a lovers touch I crave

Before I am called to the end, the grave.

Dead dreams Live Dreams

Today my dream seems set to rust

Think it’s past it, reduced to dust

Gossamer threads colour my day

Looking at a horizon layered in grey

Sure the dark is pulling me in.
Hold my dreams, in my hand 

Sifting their hues, there’s  a bright strand

Hold that strand towards the light

Twinkling green, then pink, burning bright

Sure the dark is starting to spin.
Twist it round the layers of grey

Life moves on, learn from yesterday

Pick out the issues learn from mistakes

Grasp the new thread with renewed faith

Sure the dark is starting to dim.
Know that some dreams wither away

Hold that fledgling dream and weigh

Twist those colours new bright strand

Hope rebuilt in my hands

Sure the darkness didn’t win.

Tides

Tides

Tides wash along the shore
Ebb and flow for ever more
Relationships also ebb and flow
Sometimes falter sometimes grow
Times of dark and times of sun
Always working, when attached to fun
Sunny moments dispel the grey
Keeping up with feet of clay
Are we walking hypnotised
Just trying on relationships to find the right size
Relationships ebb and flow
Can we work to make it grow

I got carried away

I got carried away by our interaction
I know it was a source of mutual attraction
I got carried away by your seeming caring
Those whispered words and the texts endearing
I imagined we shared something special at times
I am sure we did, but we were fleetingly aligned
You had the others
Then there were your brothers
Our time together intense
In this universe immense
I realised that I had got carried away
The day you forgot my words of yesterday
As one of the crowd I am just a fleeting fling
I will never be around when cupid releases the arrow from the sling
It pains me to release these silken chords
But our relationship will not win any awards
I got carried away and am getting hurt
I am setting us free, my love to divert.

Dream lost….Dream found

Today my dream seems set to rust
Think it’s past it, reduced to dust
Gossamer threads colour my day
Looking at a horizon layered in grey
Sure the dark is pulling me in.

Hold my dreams, in my hand
Sift through their hues, there a bright strand
Hold that strand towards the light
Twinkling green, then pink, burning bright
Sure the dark is starting to spin.

Twist it round the layers of grey
Life moves on, learn from yesterday
Pick out the issues learn from mistakes
Grasp the new thread with renewed faith
Sure the dark is starting to dim.

Know that some dreams wither away
Hold that fledgling dream and weigh
Twist those colours new bright strand
Hope rebuilt in my hands
Sure the darkness didn’t win.
