Complete

Each walking couple
Each hand that is held
Reminds me of us
And our brand new world
You’re not at my side
You are here in my heart
I’m thinking of us
And how right from the start
Every thought spoken
Every smallest deed
Has increased the love
And deepened the need
For you.
Just you and no more
Like nothing I’ve felt
Like no one before
I could list out your virtues
Recite all that you are
But it’s simple to me;
You’re the best fit by far
So I see you in others
As I walk down the street
I’m dreaming, believing
You make me complete

Island Sanctuary

A need to rest, mind at ease
To reach the island sanctuary
Beach, sun, palm trees
A return to self as primary
For self care, a chance to repair
To remove the grinding stress
Time to observe, breathe in fresh air
Clear mind, remove guilt and regrets
De-knot shoulders, feel alive
Reflect, work out what’s true
From fear cease to hide
Get back to being just you
Consider the solace in another
Think about what they might bring
Deliberate a life together
Maybe change everything
Seek a place to be calm
Oasis in a sea of strain
Safe, away from harm
Recover out of the rain

Battles of the Exes

Battle of the exes
Fight to the end
Final landed blow
No longer a friend
No longer civil
Trying to lay blame
Wherever they will
To avoid the shame
Of a bonding fail
That might be due
To their actions
Don’t continue
To hit out at me
When I gain zero
Can’t fix this mess
Neither of us heroes
Neither of us evil
We just tried and fell
Fell short of the goal
But no need for hell
In trying to point fingers
To assess exact whys
Dragging us to negatives
Make us each other despise
Stop this tirade
Just rest and calm
Move to be still again
Don’t attack or self harm
We’ve both learned
Both added to heart and mind
Repair and heal
You will another find

Try to be Happy

Some things in life are simple
Some out of your control
You can overthink it all you like
For a lot, you’ve not got a decision making role
But there are some steps more considered
That result in big forks in the road
Where a choice will lead to change
Build paths anew, make other paths explode
The pros and cons can be listed
You have to weigh the good and the bad
Consider the impacts on love ones
Maybe gamble to find the thing you never had
It’s not possible to see the outcome
You can see the damage to be caused
So such decisions need time
Not taken lightly, they cannot be forced.
In the midst of a dilemma
Overcome by concerns and fear
Sometimes the decisions are still simple
Follow you heart, be yourself, keep hope near
Be all you can be
Try to be happy
You will do the right thing.

Melancholy’s Veil

She’s stands alone near tube train rail
Forlorn and low, under melancholy’s veil
Her eyes are dark, devoid of light
Her heart a shadow black as night
Whomever she has lost or left
Her soul was torn, her hope bereft
A broken woman, sad and meek
Lacking the will to live, too weak
To raise her head or meet your eye
She shrinks from life and wonders why
Her path became so overgrown
To force her down, all on her own
With thorns and ghosts and things to fear
No way out, and no one near
Her footing lose, no way to climb
No meaning, no plan, no positive sign
The tube arrives and on she steps
An empty shell since she left her ex.

Physical Love

Hearts pulse
Pressure raised
Synchronised
To one phase
Flow and motion
Harmony
Coursing passion
Serenity
Sparks jump
Ecstatic bond
Physical love
Firm and strong

Leavers Remorse

Going through the motions
Looking like I’m really here
In my head I’m away with you
A last dance filled with fear
That I will always be alone
Just me, no partner, no sound
I miss you terribly; it’s pain
I fear never having anyone around
What if I got it wrong
What if my sights are set too high
What if I shouldn’t have ended it
Shouldn’t have reacted the other night
We’d be happy now, with hope
We’d be making love once more
I’d be able to be present in the day
Knowing “an us” was in store

Incomplete and Happy

It’s wonderful to be incomplete
To not be done, be on a quest
Searching, changing, learning
This won’t be as good as it gets
There’s more in life to go for
Even if you’re happy with your lot
Have joy in days and nights
Appreciate all that you’ve got.
It’s good to want, dream big
Not feeling absence, seeking more
A solemn vow to find someone
To embrace, together life explore.
Fulfil your heart felt desires
To be you, be seen, be loved
In time to find an intimate one
Who is all others placed above
Until her hand I find, with faith
There’s joy in every forward step
Incomplete and happy,
I just haven’t found her yet.

Echoes of Intimate Us

Bonded, bound.
To those blue eyes
Secret soul I found
Ultimate loving prize

On a path to joy
But took a turn away
In one step hopes destroy
Lamentable sad day

Haunting azure glow
Echoes of intimate us
A love I will always know
Now reduced to dust

Room to Let

Mind ticking over
Without focused care
Thought jumps to thought
Frantic, erratic, nothing there
There’s a hole far inside
Your mental space vacancy
Thinking once used for you and I
Means heart and head lie empty
It seems even when apart
You resided deep within
A modelled version of you
Where I knew what was happening
A room where I always had a view
So when we said no more
You left me twice, once for real, then
You vacated my internal penthouse floor
I’ve mentally bounced around
As I care take your room
Lonely, with a constant sense
You’ll be back soon.

But you never will.
