Abusive Repetition


Setting yourself up

For yet another fall

Another vicious cycle of repetition

When you said it wouldn't happen

You thought you knew it all

No change in circumstance

Not wanting it at all

One day could be your last

There'll be no one to call

You used up all your credit

All the help offered before

Is there no more

You'll end up all alone and lonely

Ramshackled on the floor

Telling yourself again you'll change

Get your life back on track

Depending on mentality

You might just finally crack..

Blooming Gorgeous..


Fragrances permeate all around

Leaving a sweet aroma

Openly inviting all

Wildlife to their blooms

Ensuring the cycle of life

Revolves and keeps turning

Sweet innocent blooms that hold so much power.

Breaking Free


Wanting to break free

Stand out from the crowd

Be what I was meant to be

My own unique me

Having some colour, shape and form

Not falling into the grey shady norm

Of what society dictates and expects

Wanting to feel a sense of liberation

Creative muscles being able to flex.

Drunk On Love


Punch drunk on your love

Intoxicated by your charms

Heady with sensations

When held in your arms

I crave you when I can't have you

You're like a fine wine

I have an addiction to

You keep me coming back for more

Just to get another sip of you...

Expressions Of Love


Explosions of love

Fill my heart and mind

I want to let it all out

Feeling I won't be satisfied

Until it's confessed

All said and done

To be spontaneous for once

With passion and enthusiasm

By making the first move

As I declare my love for you...

A glimpse of humanity

Now digitally synced

With the computing age

Evolving, expanding

By the click of a button.
