Lifes bitter sweet song

I thought you were 

my forever love,

I pined 

when you were gone,

I pictured

 your every move,

Not to think about you

 seemed so wrong,

But now, you 

are a faded memory,

I struggle 

to see your face,

I have learnt

 from  times legacy,

I am

 now full of grace,

I have found another love,

The cycle moves along,

The wheel is

ever turning,

In lifes bitter sweet song.

Gossamer wings

You brushed my life, with gossamer wings

Held captivated by your promises of things
Then you flew away, leaving an indelible mark
A gap, a need, a place that felt so dark
Changing my soul forever, all for naught
But the life cycles of butterflies are short
From this memory springs
Love,Yearning,Sadness, Learning and Strength

Trembling on the cusp

​Trembling on the cusp

Of new ideas

It’s ever thus
Creativity falls like rain

Harnessing

More the strain
Seduced by promises

Of more and better

Application spatter
Soliloquy or monologue 

Or floating

Thoughts like thistle down 
Trembling on the cusp

Need to ride the wave

Harness the power

Be brave.

Walk by the sea

​Aromatic plants remind me of the scent of you

As I close my eyes,  imprinted with your image,  true

I hold back a sob, as your loss cuts me deep

I seem to miss you badly, waking or asleep

As I walk by the sea, and breathe the air, ladened with brine

I replay our first encounter, in this mind of mine

The warmth of the sun, portrays the feelings of joy

As I dip into my memories, of my time with you boy

The sea breeze is setting in, bringing goosebumps to my skin

As I relive our passion, a time without sin

The sound of the waves,like huge rolling sighs

Conjures the picture of the depth of your lies

The feel of the shells crushed under my feet 

The pinpoints of discomfort, prick  my feelings of defeat

The vista to the horizon, with the setting sun plunging into the sea

Reminds me it’s time to set myself free.

For my own sanity

​I want you to like me

I think you understand

I hope that our friendship

Will stay until the end
I wanted you to love me

The stars had seemed so right

Those early hedonistic days

Then you stole off in the night
I wanted us to maintain, that special bond

Those special shared moments

That our relationship was based upon

Then you showed they were shared with others, a premise bogus

I think I have been holding onto a relationship, fantasy

It was a relationship built on shifting Sands

That I just didn’t see

I must cut the bonds for my own sanity

Alternative way

If you are feeling at a low ebb
Despondent unable to cope with lifes web
Heartbroken, unappreciated
Clothed but feeling stark naked
When you want to give up,stop, look for hope
Regroup, retrench and for a moment,be a castle in a moat
Find your essence, the centre of your being
Retreat into your inner eye do new seeing
Let go of all the things you can’t control
Hold all your strengths and blessings to extol
Grieve for dreams unfulfilled
Wishes and hopes that have chilled
Then parcel that grief and toss it away
Breath deep the scent of the happiness bouquet
Find small green shoots to nurture, even in the devastation
Don’t give up, hold on, it’s all in the interpretation
Find lifes alternative way.

Memory Book

For the bemused and bewildered, a memory book
Sets out main events, to reminisce and look
I am bemused and bewildered, by your behaviour
Trying to understand it, taste the flavour
The trouble is, that memories vary
My grasp on events, is contrary
Are the vignettes of life, just pantomimes
Was it smoke and mirrors, no substance, a crime
I need to preserve the essence of us
Treasure the best, keep hold of the plus
Preserve the real, stop looking at rust
Wipe the tears from my eyes, the books,a must
Paste in the photos, add words to describe
My memory book, for a dream that has died.

Forever Love

I thought you were my forever love
I pined when you were gone
I pictured your every move
Not to think about you seemed so wrong
But now you are a faded memory
I struggle to see your face
I have learnt from our times legacy
I am now full of grace
Now I have found another love
The cycle moves along
