The Tidal Wave

A tidal wave arches overhead
Marbled with translucent ripples,
In a delayed trajectory,
Like a capture by still photography
Look within and you will see it was long been building
For it is crammed to the rafters with hate
Run you may, but you’ll not escape it’s reach
Resign to your fate instead
Let it sweep in
Break on the preemptory before making inland
To wash over you
And all who brought it to exist
To loose their prejudices
In the soak
To be baptised anew
Ushering in a new beginning,
Free of the endless cycle of hate

Naive To Be True

The naive two

Reached out to each other 

As their fingers touched

Sparks flew 

Like spiderwebs of a lighting strike 

And the equivalent of thunder rolled in their souls 

To awaken them from every other peripheral distraction

As their eyes met

And their pupils dilated in synchronicity 

All they could see was each other, and no other

Fulfilling a prophesy that each had been long foretold was their destiny to realise,

But seemed far fetched to believe,

And neither let go of the other 

Either then or now

For, if none of us are naive to begin with

None would be brave enough

To unlock the fairytale that life has in store for us.


Grace is full of knots
Ring it out, son
To find blood-splatter
Plenty here to forewarn
A man was drowning in despair
It’s like a self-fulfilling prophesy
That no one could do anything about
To save a musically-gifted soul
From his traumas
Drawing in the surrounding darkness
And forming a noose
For the reset was a drug too tempting to resist
And he was an addict of a sort
All his tragically short life
