Tiny Stitches

Can I stitch them up – all the wounds of the world with a smile, a song and a steady hand? Positivity makes me foolish enough to believe my tiny soul has influence   and anything’s possible As optimism blooms in my heart I imagine hurts healing under the miracle-infused fingers of individuals I will try as others do – trust inContinue reading “Tiny Stitches”

What To Say

As I watch your world shattermine does too into a complex mix of compassionand putting myself in your shoes            I’m glad it’s not me            but I don’t want it to be you What can I saythat could possibly take the pain away?There are no wordsand there’s no need             Words can’t heal a broken heart             and mourning has its own unique pathContinue reading “What To Say”

Away from the World (from 1999)

I close my eyes and shut out the earth, Away from all its panic and worth. I take a moment from its hurry, And know I do not have to worry. I look for my emotions, find where they are, My heart it flies so high, so far. My body relaxes, I open my mind, I’m amazed at what I find.Continue reading “Away from the World (from 1999)”

Mirage (with audio)

Lost in a wilderness of loneliness found in sandstorm of desire I reached out and you gripped my hand tight You were the answer I was the answer We were the answer to making it through the night We journeyed through passion-filled evenings until we learnt an orgasmwasn’t enough to dull the pain Weren’t you the answer? Wasn’t I the answer?WeContinue reading “Mirage (with audio)”

Kissing In Doorways

Let’s kiss in doorways rendezvous in closets give Aphrodite a reason to be jealous Let’s indulge in secret pleasures powerful wordless exchanges enough to make Casanova envious For this overwhelming desire our unquenchable need for another we need to make the most of every opportunity Come away from the crowd meet me down the hall            let’s kiss
