Burnt To Life

My life was numb living through the hours in a disconnected haze nothing to look forward to except a colourless sunrise Then you came along  and with you I felt something             seen and safe I felt something             no longer alone It didn’t last now you’re gone but I’m no longer numb I still feelContinue reading “Burnt To Life”

She’s (with audio)

She’s absolutely beautiful – gorgeous in fact and there’s no way on earth I can compete with that So I’ll paint on a smile pretend that I’m fine ignore the ache in my heart that you’ll never be mine She’s absolutely stunning almost too good to be true and I wish you all the best even though I’m not with you

The Clock

The numbers on the clock change again I watched them tick over reminding me that another minute has passed and I’m still awake I observe my staccato thoughts wondering how to quiet this frantic mind My brain talks with my anxiety about possible futures –  they’re all what ifs and maybes of things that haven’t happened and I can’t control The numbers on the clock change again the one constant force in life theContinue reading “The Clock”

Hungover (with audio)

I’m hungover from thoughts of you and everything we exchanged last night My mind aches from knowing we’re tiptoeing along the line of right and wrong I’m hungover from the reality of what we’re doing The morning light always reveals what was hidden in the safety of the dark I’m hungover from you and I have twinges of regret but not enough toContinue reading “Hungover (with audio)”

Lemon Trees and Marigolds

Lemon trees and marigolds Browning grass beneath my toes Crayfish in the backyard creek Soaking shoes and muddy cheek Kicking legs on rusting swing Listening to nature sing Cubbies built on vacant land Fortress in earth’s wonderland Drawing on the paperbark Fleeing home before it’s dark Humid nights in hot lounge room Lightning strikes and thunder booms Memories from days ofContinue reading “Lemon Trees and Marigolds”
