The Lollipop

Tell her.
Tell her to throw that thing away.
That sweet.
That sweet thing.
She calls it a lollipop.
At this rate,
It might pop out of her mouth.
Her lips,
Are sucking the life out of the poor thing.
Those lips are doing crazy things to that thing.
She puts it in.
She pulls it out.
This way and that way.
She is making funny sounds.
She is feeding on its soul,
Sucking at it’s life’s juices.
Tell her to throw it away…
It is unholy union,
Making imagination,
Run amok,
With implied notions,
Nocturnal notions.
She is mouthing empty promises,
To all and sundry.
It is a blantant display of indiscretion,
And the poor bystanders,
Have become too willing voyuers,
Excitedly gawking at the cocky lass’ ritualistic endevours.
Once more,
Tell her to throw that thing away.
Ah. The lollipop…..

The Perpetual Pawn

Sunshine drowns lost sorrows.
If only I could drink her goodness with my heart.
Moonshine shines her mysteries.
She whispers silver lit dreams.
In familiar darkness,
I find my id,
Inchoate and calmed.
Holding the future with a glad heart,
My being is nourished and nurtured.
Love is too cunning but too sweet to let go.
Silently I sing private thoughts.
Warm thoughts.
Solitary thoughts.
Forlorn thoughts.
Happy thoughts.
A lonely soliloquy,
Vents certain truths,
In her absence.
A one person conference,
Converses with his spirit.
Hold this hand,
And steal this kiss from these lips.
I’m falling.
In sweet lies.
Bleeding in love.
The perpetual pawn…

A gaze through hazy
Wisps of essence,AGAIN…

A glance at eternity herself,
A glean into the future,
And our story is narrated,
On a clear sky,
Spelling our destiny,
And healing our past,
And mending our deeds,
And misdeeds,

Secret wishes,
Secret longings,
Secret ambitions,
Harbour and lurk behind a smile.
A sweet smile.
A strange smile.
Destiny strays,
As rays of hope shine,
Affirming a distinct destination,
Potent wine,
Steals aspirations,
On a crimson sunset,
Rendering impotent,
A daring mind,
And when the night descends upon the silent Earth,
And when the darkness has embraced our naked hearts,
Destiny will kiss our empty souls,
Destiny will conspire,
To give us a favour,
