Indecent (collab)

By Cassa Bassa and Bree Leto My love for you is indecentit doesn’t fit neatly into the mouldI am an outlier in every book of sinNo amount of purity resists my passion Offer me your vigourand I will return it ten-foldYou have never known a love like mineI’m a wildfire and raging storm Come!

Soups and Forks

She eats her soup  and wonders who the people are in front of her They call her mum it makes her uneasy – she doesn’t know who they are She spills her drink down her shirt hating the man she’s been told is her husbandHe wipes her chin as she glares at him – she’s not a child She scratches atContinue reading “Soups and Forks”

Mondays (with audio)

Will you love me on Mondays when we’re tired and don’t wanna work? Will tender feelings still be there when we’re at our worst? Will you smile on Wednesdays if you wake up and see my face? If I fail and make mistakes will you still extend grace? Will you treasure me on Fridays after a week of highs and lows? Will theContinue reading “Mondays (with audio)”

Soundtrack (with audio)

I think of you from time-to-time play our record listen to the opus we wrote Hearing old songs memories from a life-time ago fills me with sighs We had exquisite moments scripted some breathtaking lines even now they make me smile We were a beautiful melody a symphony of intricate emotions until we ended in tragedy I don’t write songs like ours anymore myContinue reading “Soundtrack (with audio)”

All That Matters

I spent many months in confusion then through the fog I saw your face I’d never felt love like that before so you’re all I’m chasing now During my blind foolishness I sought solace in other things in the warmth that others provide and the strength they can offer me But this pure love is consuming me and everything else onContinue reading “All That Matters”

A New Love Story (Villanelle)

I don’t want to live my life in purgatory The time has come for me to move on I’m looking for a new love story Our relationship is in dangerous territory Mistrust and insecurity have started to spawn, I don’t want to live my life in purgatory Our life together is a sad inventory And now with the battle lines drawn I’mContinue reading “A New Love Story (Villanelle)”

Because there are times when I slip down deep into the abyss I hope you will be brave enough to climb down take my hand show me the way outand if I can’t stand please hold me tightand carry me towards the lightContinue reading “Carry Me Towards the Light”

Rearranging Stars (with audio)

(Ballad of the Stars) At first glance my soul loved yours but our star-signs spelt disaster I didn’t know we’d make it with the universe as master When I read our astrology my mind fell into deep despair you told me not to worry you placed a kiss upon my hair You said you’d shift the heavens rewrite the pathways in theContinue reading “Rearranging Stars (with audio)”

There’ll Be Dragons

Adrift with me on a sea of complicated emotions it’s uncharted territory We’ve heard there are dangers ahead we’ve seen the maps the written messages people have left warnings of firedrakes and destruction Yet we forge on keeping faith in each other despite the chance of wreckage and ruin As we sail into the unknown it’s likely there’ll be dragons but with the fireContinue reading “There’ll Be Dragons”
