Fist

fistFingers curl

Seeking their centre

And rest

On a solid palm.

Thumb encloses.

Warmth seeking

Meaning making.

Defiance.

Protection.

Feral

Instinctual

Reactive.

Love’s embrace is forgotten

In rage.

Shard

Boy looking scared through the handrail of a staircaseMy mother left when I was three

I remember her at the front door

Surrounded by the winter coats

The National Geographic magazines on the shelf framed her;

Telling my father

She wouldn’t stay.

Her fear and determination

Echoed in my ears

As I looked through

The  banister.

Tousled hair, half awake-

Possibly drunk-

He dies then.

I only realize that later.

Murder…

murder

Illusion

She entered unannounced

Her voice

Soft as an autumn breeze

A lover’s caress.

She silenced the chaos.

Apple scented beauty

Just out of reach.

Soon.

Soon,

She said.

And so you wait.

Muse

My beloved;
Elusive one.
Scent of
Feral honey and
Chocolate.
Satin cloaked in
Velvet.
My heart
Quickens
When you
Exhale.
Words dance around you:

Why, if, may I, when?

Colours blend;
In the gloaming.
Mars and Venus
Embrace.
Your kiss;
Creation
Out of chaos.

A Complicated Love

She threw her pain down
Like a gauntlet.
A toy for a
Small child;
A game.
Badge of courage;
Strength under fire.
Sometimes
Too much truth
Can do much damage.

I Will Try…

May I grow to be the person I admire:
To ignore the thoughts that drag me down;
Search for courage;
Believe in myself;
Silence my doubts;
Create for myself and others;
Stand up for what I believe;
Build a home to nurture the world,
And live without fear.

Alone

The breath of the attendants
Made the candles dance.
She was awake
Dreaming of the past;
His body in the midday- sun
And the light on his shield.
A dream that the ladies
Spoke of.
How was she to know
His life was as
Dispensable as the
Leather cast aside in a
Tanner’s shop?
He was gone;
As was a father and husband.
Could she hold up the faltering temple?
Their son?
With
Woman’s hands.
