Ignorance 

It’s the new disability 

Gnawing away in blinkered minds.

Not understanding to acknowledge 

Opinions not able to bend,

Reason with or open to expand.

Arrogant in its slim margin,

Not able to see another view.

Content in self satisfaction,

Ever blissful in its comfort.

Dreams And Wishes

I dreamt about you last night

tripping in eyelid flutters,

drifting in bizarre slumbers 

entranced by illusions of you.

.

If only our dreams were true.

Wishes, dreams, at night with you.

Dreaming wishes to come true.

Just so that I can see you.

.

I dreamt about you last night

in my woozy sleeping arms held

you tight. In reverie we

left heartache behind to live.

.

If only our dreams were true.

Wishes, dreams, at night with you.

Dreaming wishes to come true.

Just so that I can see you.

.

I dreamt about you last night.

Imaginary laughter,

chimerical and hazy

fantasies enchanting us.

.

If only our dreams were true.

Wishes, dreams, at night with you.

Dreaming wishes to come true.

Just so that I can see you.

.

I dreamt about you last night,

told you everything will be

alright. Moments together

we will treasure forever.

.

If only our dreams were true.

Wishes, dreams, at night with you.

Dreaming wishes to come true.

Just so that I can see you.

.

I dreamt about you last night,

and awoke in a gloomy dawn.

Wonder if you dreamt of me

knowing you do you love me.

.

If only our dreams were true.

Wishes, dreams, at night with you.

Dreaming wishes to come true.

Just so that I can see you.

.

I dreamt about you last night

eternally keeping you in 

my sight. Our eyes will meet one 

day, embracing our faces love.

.

If only our dreams were true.

Wishes, dreams, at night with you.

Dreaming wishes to come true.

Just so that I can see you.

.

Wishing to see you,

dreaming of you.

Loving you forever.

Colours

Chromatic vivid colour

Of nature beautiful, bright,

Lucid, kaleidoscopic

Outstanding in its delight.

Ultra brilliant hues in 

Rainbows radiate sparkling 

Spectrums found in everything.

Just For A Moment 

Just for a moment I 

thought I saw your face It’s 

following  everywhere 

and haunting every place.

In the daylight shadows

and corners of my eye,

glimpses of your pretty 

face I let out a sigh.

Knowing that it’s not you

and it could never be

when you’re so far away

two hundred miles from me.

Wish I’d never left you

was such a fool to leave,

in my faults I caused pain

together we both grieve.

For the time that’s missing

and both our hearts are lost.

Thought I did the right thing

but heartaches been the cost.

Just for a moment I 

imagine I’m still there,

One day babe I will be

for you my love is bared.

Never doubt a minute

somehow I’ll find a way,

over the Severn bridge

back home forever stay.

Awaken 

Awakening in chorus song birds of the morn

Winging in on the tails of pink and purple dawn.

Arising the new skies in paler shades of blue 

Keepers of the future and unknown days of new

Embracing fresh feeling casting aside regret.

Nights slumber in passing brings paths untrodden yet.

Whimsical 

Wishing washy whimsy,

Hoping dreams aren’t flimsy.

In cloud moons so ditzy.

Magic and creative,

Scatterbrained and native,

Impulsive, evasive.

Chasing rainbows always 

Airhead bubbles. You stray

Light and fickle to play.
