A Healing Heart...


Traversing the valley

Of broken hearts

Learning all over again

Healing slowly

Beginning to see

Light at the end of the tunnel.

A Spring In My Step...


Enjoying the first rays of spring

The scents of the flowers that bloom

Basking in the enjoyment of such beauty

After winters bleakness and gloom.

Beautiful Spring


The heart lifts up a little

With the onset of beautiful spring

Lighter, brighter mornings

Hearing the birds that sing

Flowers pushing through the earth

Ready to blossom and bloom anew

Bringing fresh fragrances, bright colours

To the land once more

Creating uplifting and vivid views

Another yearly cycle is in motion

Mother nature has a new spring in her step.

Bittersweet Ink...


Forgive my poetic heart

For it is full of tangled up emotions

Conflicts and confusions

All of which need to be

Bled out from time to time

Written out in a bittersweet release

To my heart and mind.

Cuts Like A Knife...


Invested so much time

And effort in people

Never getting nothing back

People you thought loved you

Stab you in the back

Sharp jagged blades

Repeatedly put in

Now those rose-tinted glasses

Are firmly thrown in the bin

Toxicity blown out the door

Back turned on phoney and fake

A lesson learned once and for all

Never repeat that same mistake.

Fooling Around...


Played the joker, the fool

Played the games

Broke all cardinal rules

Now the tears of clown fall

A masquerade has come to an end.
