Missing You

You’ll never know
how much I’ve missed you.
It’s been so long since
I have kissed you,
or seen you smile
or seen you laugh,
I think of you
and I’m in half.
I long to put my
arms around you,
give you a hug
like I used to.
I miss the way
we used to row,
and how you would
call me a cow.
I miss our random
all the drama
and complications.
I miss cooking you
your favourite meal,
and you telling me
how you feel,
about the things
that really matter,
talk of clothes
and endless chatter,
watching movies
and tv shows
it’s all been lost
and my heart knows.
It’s all my fault
and I’m regretting
leaving you and
never forgetting
all those times
they’re precious things,
your memory
makes my heart sing.
And ache as well
it drives me mad
and all the time
I’m feeling sad.
but in time I
hope the future’s
graced and I
will see your
pretty face.

They nurture their seeds.

Lovingly they’re blossoming

beautiful flowers.

Love Is A Slow Burn 

It’s a passionate flame

Igniting souls with its

ferocious flicker and

scorching intensity.


Its hellish damnation

is its fiery nature.

Emblazoned with desire

for its beloved spark


to combust in kindled

sweet nothings. Smothered

the glow is extinguished.

Loves waning’s a slow burn


Ones lust is cremated,

the other walks away.

Their passion still burning

leaving, their warm hearts scarred.

Time For A Change 

When you love somebody dearly

but the relationship’s estranged,

and you feel taken for granted

maybe it is time for a change.


Alter your own expectations

and take people for who they are.

You know nobody is perfect

and perhaps your opinion’s marred


by idealist perceptions

of what your connection should be.

it could be your own attitude

that’s causing all the misery.


Even true love wanes with pressure,

give your heart time to beat alone

Leave your trusted soul air to breathe

because a person’s never owned.

Harvest Moon 

The clouds are iridescent

in love with the moon tonight.

The stratosphere’s glowing in

it’s celestial delight.


Crescent illuminations

enlighten wisp nebula.

In darkness it’s a cosmic

orange orb of plethora.


The twilight lies with passion

as the heavens float on by.

The lunar cast enchantment

Is embedded in the skies.


Hearts are bound in fluorescence,

and the night will harvest love.

Embracing moonlight dreamers

in their sanctity of lust.

Warm And Fuzzy

Incoherent hearts

lead our senses astray in

their endless pursuit.

Love’s an illogical thing,

its force both warm and fuzzy.

I don’t want your love

something is amiss,

your heart is made of stone

I don’t want your kiss.

I don’t need your words

sharpened in their charms

Never will I find

comfort in your arms.

I don’t need your soul

breathing down on me,

putrid eyes of hate

all I ever see.

I don’t want to give

your abuse my head,

truthfully I cry

inside I am dead.
