Mowing The Snow

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 14, 2014 by dc

You leave me gasping for air
Like there’s a chill on my lungs,

A frost in the air,
All kisses and shivers,

My neck hairs
A wild, dancing crowd
At a winter carnival.

You leave me longing to hold you
Through days, weeks and seasons,

A hibernation extended,
All clocks running skyward,

All dizzy and dazed in my driveway,
Wide eyed at midnight,
Mowing the snow.

Let’s slump
On the ground
All angular,

The world

Your face
In my neck,

A gentle kiss
On my throat.

Let’s disappear,
Find a corner
Amidst the hustle,

A hideaway,
A sanctuary,

Close your eyes,

We breathe as one,
Beat as one

As the city blurs

And we are taken
By the moment,

All twisted limbs
And hush.

To Love

Dawn’s tickled birdsong
A dew fresh hallelujah
Alive in your eyes

I Slipped This Under The Bathroom Door

When the moon cries its silver
Or the sun spreads its smile,
It’s you in my mind,

You in the daydreams
That creeps across my face.

To lose you to circumstance,
New demons or sadness
Would unplug my heart;

We have the world at our feet,
Why push it onto our shoulders?
Why pull the clouds to our eyes?

I want to crown you on hilltops
And dance through the years,

Spinning with pleasure
And saluting the magpies,

Tasting the raindrops
And skipping round ladders,

We were born to weave wonder,
Please stay in my smile,

These heartbeats I cherish
Could stretch out for miles.

Weekend Cottage

He’s electrified

By dust cells,

Stirring porridge

By your side.

Fresh Pillows

Your hair gracing fresh pillows
Like a crown before a coronation,
A summer sun resting through blue skies,
A leaf floating gently down stream,

Your beauty in glimpses,
Occasional smiles,
Your hand on my thigh
As I drift somewhere golden.

French villages high on wine,
Dutch streets slowly winding,
London bars hiding kisses and whispers,
Our heads in the stars as we sway.

I hold you and dream till the sun breaks,
Alive in your arms like the new storms,

In two hours you’ll be gone
And I’ll be left thinking,

This night has been stolen too soon.

I will live forever,
As long as that may be,
Tasting the wine on your lips,
Brushing your face against mine
And tumbling high,

I will feed on fresh air
And stare through the rainclouds,
I will wander strange streets
And sing myself off to sleep
Through the storms.

As long as forever may be
I will drift through the seasons,
Hands cupped with laughter
And recollections of love,
Touching your smile and sharing its life.

We are Living for Weekends

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 10, 2009 by dc

The pendulum swings heavy,
You’re invisible,
A week seems like a lifetime.

Chicken chatters in the pan,
The radio seeps,
All the memories smile.

Even distance has answers,
Thoughts can be golden,
We have journeys of laughter.

This absence gifts us daydreams,
Patience is vital,
We are living for weekends.

You are the Daylight

Love is the flicker
A second before sunrise,

The scatter of dew
Before dawn splits its colours.

You are the daylight
Through the cracks in my curtains,

A breath on my neck,
a subtle smile as I roll.

We Kiss In Hallways

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 8, 2009 by dc

We kiss in hallways
When we pass,
On porches before we enter,
We’re like magnets in a bottle,
Two ants sharing
A single grain of sugar,
Two clouds meeting
And covering the sky.

In taxis, on buses and trains
We whisper our love,
Your words the sweet songs
That I never tire of hearing,
Alive in my mind
And pushing me forward.

We kiss at the end of streets,
We change angles,
We warm up each other
Through winter,
We’re like TVs with the lonely
But more magic than that seems,
Two bodies resting together
And hatching a vision of dreams.
