crazy moons

we can’t choose them
they fall
conquer us

and our minds
are absent in
the present

they remember
things in different
shapes and shadows

they fall
conquer us

and our minds
are flashbacks
and throwbacks

bad and more
bad as they
sign out the
good

logic

i see a
piece of me
on a part
of a broken
mirror

a piece that
chases the
lost of
a whole

never connected
never connected

a piece of
me that
was never
really me

what do i see
what do they see

a piece that
is there

a piece that
isn’t me

tablet

silhouette of us pressed
on a photograph left
a history of our past
winding through my
thoughts as i re-examine
the sweet early years of
our dear life
short-lived by the horror
of one rainy night

i feel your cold hands
visiting me while
i dream about you
and your absence
makes me long
for you first thing
in the morning

my tears re-visit me
over the cycle of years
and i travel the road
without you and
this is more than
a misery unwanted

darker are the nights
bluer are the days
abandoned like me

you left me dreaming
a home with you
but you’re gone

molten fair

journal pages and
coffee table
this evening
is a coloured feast

starfish aquarium
in moving sphere
of glass and water
therapeutic maybe

signs across the
foreign skies
full of lullaby stars
distantly heard

my square window
peeps the world
outside where she
meets my eyes

lemon lights

car dreams of
alligator seat-belts
and petrol exits
from the red tube

zoom and bang
over-speeding
the streets are
tantrum fires

distorted gps
risky roundabout
slippery tracks
wheels on grass

nowhere we don’t
know where we are
we’re overdosed
with lemon lights

rain is

rain is a
beautiful
flow that
sometimes
one’s eye
cannot
see

rain is a
rhythmic
sound that
sometimes
one’s ear
cannot
hear

rain is a
reminder
that
sometimes
one’s mind
cannot
understand

rain is a
blessing
that
sometimes
one’s heart
cannot
feel

the Now

drinking deliverance
delivers me
out there

change is a process
changes me
inside

finding rest
finds me
better

love is a friend
loves me
forever
