You whisper to my body Simply by the dark way you say my name; Your eyes are filled with a tense loaded heat, I make sure my reactions are secret, Many times I have learnt to hold my ground Because I worry I’m a prize to you ‘The chase’ is a game for you; ToContinue reading “Secrets Between (Sestina)”
Today is my birthday… my blogging birthday. A year ago today, I posted my first few thoughts and now we are here together. I’m surprised I made it. Happy Birthday to all our secret thoughts! I wish I could shower you with gifts and watch your eyes light up, but I have no presents toContinue reading “26th April: My Birthday”
I bet the “My Name” part of this post is why most of you are here, but we’ll get to that in a minute. I am thrilled to announce that two of my poems will be published in an anthology trilogy called Through Loving Words: A Poetry Collection, Volumes 1-3 with City Limits Publishing. MyContinue reading “An Anthology with My Name (Published)”
Shut it down Shut it down, shut it off. Removing one small page of poetry is of no importance nor any loss. No one will know and no one will care. To pretend any of it matters really isn’t fair. I am consumed by disgust for my own creativity and clumsy words. When I readContinue reading “Down”
When you ask me how I am And I tell you that “I’m fine”, It means I’ve cried too many tears And breathed a multitude of sighs. If my words seem pretty vague, Well, I do it by design, Because I don’t want you to know, Underneath I’m not so fine.
I am the guardian of your secrets The ones you keep inside The truth of who you really are All the things you try to hide I do not judge concealed thoughts Or the secrets that you carry You can tell me anything I’ll listen without commentary I keep confessions safe and sound I protect them until my death I will not speakContinue reading “The Guardian (with audio)”
I kept my secret smile for you today. I almost gave it to a man who was trying to steal my heart, but I pulled it back just in time. Smooth phrases and witty words, even with my guard down, I didn’t give it away. You see, my secret smile holds all the things IContinue reading “Kept for you”
You broke my heart in so many ways but I never told you about any of them. I covered them up with humour and laughed at it instead. I hoped you’d never hear the ache in my voice during all the times we talked. I smiled so you’d never see the loneliness in my eyesContinue reading “Broken (collab with audio)”
Should we share our secrets?Do we dare be so brave?I’m not sure this is wise,Should we discuss what we really crave? If you tell me that you want me, Then I’ll tell you I want you back. If you whisper that you think of me, I’ll confess you’re my soundtrack. If you share that youContinue reading “Sharing Secrets (with audio)”
Our true desires hide themselves in the words we don’t say. Our deepest temptations silently pulse behind our every controlled movement.
