Touch - Pause - Engage

Touch - Pause - Engage

Do you remember
When we mixed our drinks
And told each other
The world would be ours?

Do you remember
Our mocking rivalry
And mocking others
And crazy dancing?

I ran down the road
The day before your flight

Do you remember when you left?

We met again
Although I don’t think
You’ve found what you need
And I don’t know
If I need what I’ve found

I do believe the world is ours

The Seduction

I've been writing a few things as songs, lately, as opposed to poems. When I've got enough I'll record them all together but it won't be for a while, so I'm going to be posting lyrics up here occasionally just so I feel like I'm doing something. They'll make more sense in musical form.

The Seduction

See me with your eyes
Attract me with your smile
Touch me with your words
Play me with your sounds
Draw me with your mind
Steal me with your heart
Tempt me with your hands
Take me with your strength
Take me
Inside
Inside
Inside
Inside
Throw me with your power
Catch me in your arms

Forest

Forest

There was a clearing in the forest
A mile down the road
I thought that when I grew up
I would sit there with my love

Now there is a tangled fallen tree
And a constant puddle from the rain
I visit sometimes on my own

If you love me, let me know
And if I love you, we can sit
in the puddle and climb the tree
High enough to spot
A new clearing

Latinate

I've been away from home the past couple of weeks, doing some sad things and some happy things. As a result I've neglected my blog but now I'm back at the laptop and will attempt to resume normality for a while!

This little thing popped into my head this afternoon, inspired by a friend who taught me the last line yesterday. Thank you, D x

Latinate

You give me false hope that you might pay attention
What starts with excitement gives way to high tension
I think, when you don’t look in my eyes but through ‘em,
“Futue te ipsum et caballum tuum!”

Distraction

Can't quite put my finger on why
this distraction picks up pace
Gravity won't let it fly
Only invisible space
