I Slipped This Under The Bathroom Door

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 9, 2011 by dc

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.

Out to Sea

They gathered
And embraced
As a body of black ash
Floated out to the sea,

A distance forgotten,
The sweet brew of good times
Fermenting with tears.

She will be missed,
Like biscuits from a tin
In a kitchen filled with smiles.

Sail safely,
Sail sound,

Love’s swimming with you
Wherever you’re bound.

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.

Beautiful Reverie

The city smelt sweet,
Everything seemed right
Even the sunshine followed me
As I spoke to strangers
Like a high on life salesman
Unleashing his patter
To a crowd waving money.

Shadows were lit up with smiles,
Laughter weaved
Through the breeze
And tickled my tongue,
Nothing felt wrong,
It was like an epiphany
Or at least a great dream.

You were the beautiful conclusion
To a day that made my life
Or at least contained an upturn,
A fortune of riches
Kissing my lips
And holding me close,
A lifetime of wonder.

It seemed nothing could go wrong,
Words became pictures
And the pictures became stories
Filled with pride, love and glory,
Hope and adventure,
Mountains seemed smaller,
The world was our oyster.

Every kiss pulled a heartstring,
Every moment was speeding,
I felt giddy and blissful,
The world had never
Seemed so alive,
Birds spoke words in the garden,
Idiots dared to dream.

Another Heaven Swells

I awake and the morning
Has not yet met your eyes,
Beauty holds its stillness,
Silence keeps its style.

The day has split its yellow
But it’s resting at your feet
And the light is slowly shimmering
In patterns sat unique.

Moments come from nothing,
A dawn that wants to scheme,
A golden glow that paints the room
And swims between our dreams.

Anything or Nothing

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 18, 2008 by dc

It could be anything
Or nothing,
A country walk down a lane,
A stroll through a forest,
Underwear in the brambles,
Loving arms by the oak tree.
There are roads
That we could travel on,
There are words that don’t exist,
There is time
To kill and wallow in
But the time
Is ripped to bits.
It hangs on the oak tree
And rustles in the bushes,
It staggers like lovers
And saves both our blushes
With dusk.
