Stranger of light

As silence bit his very soul, he grew tired of this life. His bones were sore aching from all he had experienced all those years before. The dead in eyes were sore to every blink. Scalding to every touch. The heat he was feeling was more torture than anything else. Willing it to rain, he might aswell of been looking for a needle in a haystack. All that sheltered his tired head was a worn piece of cloth, barely covering his bald patch. Looking to the skies as each burden of light tore him apart with razor sharp blows to his mind. Gasping every inch of dry air filled his slow pumping lungs. All along in the back of his mind the music of yesterday played it's role in his sensitive position. Cautioned by the nothing that was taken over him, how could he go on? These questions filled every splinter of his being.

How could someone who once travelled so far and come through so much be so low and give in so suddenly? Had he given up ? Or had something else predicted his pathway of life? There just seemed to be no answers to his questions. With his head held low and all that surrounded him not mattering anymore. Then all of a sudden a blast of vibration and volt took over his weak disposition. He grew tall and strong. Shaken by what was suddenly happening, what was happening to him? He did not know? Nothing could of shifted him before, now he was taller than ever almost touching the sky. His once tired lungs were working like mechanical systems. His once worn eyes felt no more digging pain. His once crusted face was cold to the touch. Was he dead ? or dreaming? these questions filled his mind.

' Why does the sun hurt no more ' ? ' Why do i not feel hunger or thirst any more ' ? With no one there to answer his questions , where was he to go? Fear suddenly took over this was an emotion he had not seen in a long time. As tall as he stood he couldn't understand all that was changing about him. Every step he took was like an earth moving motion. Jolting even him slightly off course. Where am i to go now? More powerful than ever he ran with excitement. Not been bothered by the huge gaps he left in his path. Freedom was his once again. A smile filled his cold skin. It was an effort to force this smile as his skin felt so tight and hard to move. The sand underneath his feet blew up and over the dry broken ground. Not realising that while he was running and causing the ground to move , he was encouraging life underneath to come through. 

He felt like he could run for ever and never ever stop. Suddenly another sharp light came down and lasered the ground on which he was making so much of. What ? he thought out loud. What is happening? No words or actions followed. He came to a stop. Not feeling tired, not feeling pain. Then out of no where, came a figure much the same as someone he knew before but different. ' Who are you '. The figure stood and uttered not a word. Confused by the silence, curiosity got the better of him. He walked over in his heavy manner. Every thump of the weakened ground beat every inch of her. Not knowing who she was bewildered his changed mind. ' I feel like i know you ? ' , he thought to himself. Walking around her almost making himself dizzy, her eyes followed him with every breath he took. She suddenly opened her thoughts as he was thrown back by knowing what she was saying. To his surprise her lips didn't move, her words were driven by a telepathic form.

' Right ' , he spoke. ' What is going on here '? She continued to use her mind to drive her words through to him. ' I come from far away, a place you have forgotton about'. 'What place'? This made no sense to him at all. Lingering in the air a familiar smell drove a memory back to him. As this grew stronger and stronger so did her telepathic words to him. They were like formulas in his head not written words. Each one made sense to him for some strange reason. A flash of light came again, different than before. ' Run' , she shouted to him. 'What ' ? 'Why '? The look in her eyes made him aware of the danger that would unfold if he stayed. How could he run without her by his side? What would happen to her if he left her? With no answers in his mind, the ground opened up and pulled her in. 'No', he shouted out .

Please release Me

Sitting on the edge of glory
worry just stood still
happiness that he once felt
lost in his own thoughts
sadness was his pill

Please set me free
please let me be me
as his knees dug
the cold dirt filled ground
all he could hear
was his own heart pound

Scattered clouds of grey
that filled the lonely skies
tears that filled him up inside
stinging his water worn out eyes

Patience is a virtue
which to some it comes so near
for others it can hit them hard
making nothing else clear

Screams of the voices of yesterday
filled his lonly mind
almost taking over him
until he was virtually blind

When a tiny glimmer of hope
landed in his path
a leaf that fell so slowly
like a butterflies tiny raft

Where once held a heavy heart
feet of stone no more
a body light as a feather
a soul had been reborn

A free man now he felt
no longer , lingering pain
the chains and shackles of yesterday
will never tie him down again

Don't forget us

I remember the days
when i would go and see you
a loving hand
you would hold out
and teach me my times two

A gentle voice
a loving heart
a wonderful person
right from the start

Always having time
for others
never thinking of yourself
pushing back the housework
to  make a conversation and help

At meal times always a place set
everyones for tea
laughter and chat filled the room
you were as busy as a bee

Never ever thinking
that one day would come
that we would watch over you
now it is our turn

Your loving smile still touches us
at will we wish you well
the happy times we remember
not on the illness that you have
we don't want to dwell

Your heart is strong
your mind is too
were so lucky
to have someone like you

So all that you have taught us
we hold deep inside
we know that you are an angel on earth
your wings you choose to hide

Valentine kisses

When all the flowers
the petels you are to give
have wilted away
love wont go through your fingers like a sieve

Wishing wanting more
than chocolates , cards and much more
when on this valentines day
love comes knocking on your door

Pick yourself up
look at the hand
that is wanting you to hold
treasure the memories
new and old

Kisses so soft
cuddles so near
courage of love
lighting up your night

Listen carefully
love like never before
knowing your valentine
knocked on your door
leaving their feelings
with you, for ever more

Hear the Roar

Wild is his heart
his roar like none before
guarding all that lie in his circle
stars that shine down
glisten in his eyes
that sparlke
Ruffed up hair
that encourages her stare
eyes that are so powerful
prey in his path
looking on at him
eat his way through
it looks awful
King of the jungle
mauling the kill
circle of life
this is how it is done
feeding the cubs fill
Lioness looks on in pride
his tail so strong
as it waves at her
in a flirting glide
He protects her
like no other
after all
she is the queen
she is the futures mother
Run like the wind
faster than the prey
there he is
off on his way
Hunter of the day
he waits patiently
he will catch it
he won’t let them stand still
in the haze of the suns rays
Strength of the time
roaring all around
unsettling fear
fills the safari
stillness sound

Magical Scenes

If for every sparkle
that would fall from the sky
leave us full of wonder
wondering where and why?

Smile that crosses over
as footsteps crunch the undergrowth
lighthouses that guide the lifeboats
as the sparkle shines up high

Skyline of light
bring me your night
bring me your day
wonders of what may come
wonders of your display

Shimmering landscapes
shimmering lights
sparkling dotted dancing colors
bursts of sunshine rays

Bolts of rainbows
after the rain
taste the emotions
filling the air

As each perfect raindrop
falls from a single strand of hair
like a tiny teardrop
then suddenly disappears

Scents of tall grass
scents of blue torn skies
birds in flight
taken cover on the way
oh what a magical day


Drown my sadness
drown my grin
tare me down
pull from within

Taking away parts
leaving nothing there
leaving me isolated
in my own skin

Trails of scented nothing
trails of love before
now the hunger is there
like never, hurt hearts
hung, dragged on the floor

Whistling of promises
given false hope
choking a life
turning the rope

Blasts of laughter
fall from your lips
no more loving
no more touch
of your finger tips

Leave now
leave before
do not wait
for me to open the door

Sea of humour
there simply is none
once there was happiness
no one has won
