Bitter Cold

March 27, 2015

The bitter cold
Chilling me
Right to the bone
A cold night
It’s March,
Trending April.
What is this
The cruel cold
Canadian climate
Even after
Twenty five to life
I still feel
The bitterness
Of these nights
Right in
My empty soul

You are my World

March 26, 2015

You make me smile
When the world turns it’s back
You are the force
That stops the attack
You are the presence
So beautiful and pure
You are the one
Making me feel secure
You are so gracious
Kind to the very bone
You make me happy
Even on my nights alone

Disengage

March 25, 2015

And with those
Two little words
She changed
His life forever:
I’m done.

Work

March 24, 2015

Work can eat away
Any semblance of a life
Just going crazy

Feeling close

March 23, 2015

Locking eyes
Locking lips
Seeing you
In my grips.

Kissing hard
Kissing soft
Forgetting pain
Feeling aloft.

Sleeping soft
Sleeping sound
Rhythmic breathing
So profound

Hold you close
Hold you near
Finally forgetting
All I fear

Never any good

March 22, 2015

I’ve never been good
At expressing myself.
Emotions spill out
And role off the shelf.

I’ve never been good
At understanding others.
It’s challenged me
To empathise with my brother.

I’ve never been good
At feeling like me.
I live in fear
Of what you’ll all see.

I’ve never been good
At much of anything.
Feeling empty
Can really sting.

Longing For You

March 21, 2015

You are so beautiful
Slipping through my mind
Like an old film
Playing on a loop
Your smile illuminates
My mental projector
Blasting my heart
With warm soft light
Longing for the real thing
