Romanticising Sentences (with audio)

I romanticise your pen and paper –  all the words they spill and carry There’s pleasure in imagining you chewing on your lip  as you match letters and emotions together You shuffle the words with an expert hand dealing them into exquisite sentences I’m entranced by the artistry caught up in the romance –  I fall in love with the languageContinue reading “Romanticising Sentences (with audio)”

Two Wrong Notes (with audio)

One wrong note at a time a fumble of loud mistakes too noticeable to cover up  too obvious to pretend it didn’t happen One stumbling scale after another I should be able to play better than this Is there any way to incorporate wrong notes  so they sound purposeful?  One heart trying striving to improve but effort doesn’t always lead to brilliance some simplyContinue reading “Two Wrong Notes (with audio)”

Red Light (with audio)

He’s a red light Nothing good ever comes from loving men like him I need to put on the breaks as my heart starts to race I should stopI really should stop He’s a red light I nudge the accelerator  shutting my eyes keep driving straight into his arms –  destined to become  a tragedy of mangled hearts I should stopI really should stopI flatten the accelerator to the floor SoundContinue reading “Red Light (with audio)”

Leaves (with audio)

The weather is grey as if it can sense my thoughts about you During a solitary walk I whisper your name to the trees –  each syllable holding a tapestry of memories  In my ashen mood I take refuge under the hemisphere of an evergreen I sigh into the leaves hoping they’ll send messages on the wind I miss youContinue reading “Leaves (with audio)”

Restraint (with audio)

If I took the restraints off my thoughts  I wonder where I would end upWhat pathways would they lead me down? What fantasies would they indulge?

Lone Lights (with audio)

A lone light glows across the street – an amber intruder upon midnight shadows I wonder what’s going on inside that house is it something that shouldn’t be exposed? There’s an odd sense of comfort knowing I’m not alone and someone else’s awake There’s consolation in seeing other lights shimmering in the night We’re alone shining together in the darkness –  an unlikely communityContinue reading “Lone Lights (with audio)”
