Finally Complete

Clouds of grey,
No sky of blue,
When each day,
I’m without you

But comes that time,
Not oft’ enough,
When the sun doth shine
And I set off

Across the ocean
Back to you
The plane in motion
‘Come on crew!’

Get me to
The one I love,
Fly me in,
From up above

Back to her
I do race,
That metal bird,
Doth cross the space

A finally back,
There in her arms,
Oblivious to all,
But her sweet charms

That pretty face,
Those luscious lips,
I’m whole again,
And now complete

Once Upon a Time

There once was a time,
Nothing made sense,
No reason or rhyme,
A life of pretence.

I was always alone,
In miserable solitude,
Love unknown,
A different longitude.

And then the joy,
Of two as one,
As girl met boy,
’twas a miracle done.

And then I knew,
With all my heart,
All I wanted was you,
And life did start.

Now I know,
You’re my everything,
You fill my heart,
You make it sing.

Joy and happiness,
You bring to me,
All I want,
Is for us to be free.

Together forever,
Never apart,
Eternally united,
One single heart.

Wilbur Took Flight

In honour of Wilbur’s first flight and the woman that I love I have penned, well typed off the cuff, a short poetic celebration of both.

Wilbur took flight
And headed for sea
An incredible sight
A favour for me

No one would expect
A blackbird to fly
O’er the ocean intact
No one but I

Onwards he flew,
Disregarding red lights,
Over to you,
Ignoring the sights

Able to do,
This task with such ease,
To fly to you,
Whenever he please

To deliver my message,
He came from above,
And with my gage
He carried my love

He chirped in your ear,
My missive and plan
Soon you shall be,
Back with your man

Though not a dove,
He did surely endeavour,
To be a sign of my love,
Always and forever

Across from an Ocean

Peppermill

 

 

 

 

 

 

Across from an ocean,
There we met,
The flesh first seen,
No need to fret.

An awkward kiss,
Rushed, in our way,
But perfect bliss,
What can I say.

A divide so wide,
Of Eastern promise,
As each we eyed,
On our first tryst.

Then after that time,
Of heavenly splendour,
The ultimate crime,
We’d always remember

I had to leave,
The law of the land,
I could not breathe,
As I held your hand

To fly away,
Across the sea,
Until that day,
When with you I’ll be.

It will come,
There is no doubt,
As riseth the sun,
You I ca’never be without.

I’ll Change My Flag

Chain

 

 

 

 

 

Alone again,
On this desolate isle.
Trapped in a chain,
No desire to smile.

Dreaming of then,
When together we were.
Dreaming of then,
When together we’ll be.

Thoughts of us,
Lift my heart.
Thoughts of us,
Never apart.

Days will pass,
Night times too.
No need to ask,
I’ll come back to you.

Time it does drag,
Until that day.
I’ll change my flag,
When we find a way.

I love you, Ionia.

Revelation! From the Treetops

The ‘double top secret’ project from my post of a few days ago, ‘Holy Crap!’, is now completed and can be revealed. So without further ado, except for the obligatory drum roll, here it is.

A Poetic ProposalIt is available here:

Amazon US

Amazon UK

I have been working on a small collection of poems, a humble effort that I have now published on amazon. Most of you that have been following this blog for a while will not be surprised to know that the entire collection is dedicated to the love of my life, Ionia, the inspiration in all I do. This includes a personal message for her, and this book is my version of shouting my love for her from the treetops. The poems are all based on love and separation, as you could have no doubt guessed.

I would also like to have a blog tour (some time in December) to publicise the release of this, my first, but hopefully not last, published work. If you would like to sign up and help me out with the blog tour please let me know in the comments.

I Feel Like a POME

prison cell

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
I feel like a POME,
Stuck on this rock,
Waiting to come home,
Watching the clock.
 
And when the time comes,
I travel with glee.
The jet engine thrums,
As I fly o’er the sea.
 
Then we are together,
The whole world right.
It should be forever,
This heavenly light.
 
But before we know it,
The hands have turned.
It really is shit,
We should have learned
 
Time has passed,
In the blink of an eye.
We should have asked
The gods in the sky
 
To stop the passage,
The passage of time,
When we’re together,
And life is sublime.
 
Dedicated to my version of heaven, Ionia.
