Bring out those unsolicited claims
Witness in your heart pretentious gains Blowing worthiness of splendour and gold Tell me this isn’t true or revoltingly untold!
Say ye, thee wise men Born into the stressful messy den Unfold thy lids, covered with years of dust Belong to this song, make no precipitating fuss!
Rush thee now, whistle on fours Turn that wind dial, hush then some more Terror draw you out of your circle Enter my square, begin now that ultimate quarrel!
This one is for you
You will recognise it If you are the true, my baby boo!
Your eyes like deep pits Enriched with years of grandiose soul Your skin more glowing Rife with melted chocolate and honey All of it encouraging me so much more!
Your hands so divine A pleasure for us, all mankind But mostly its your heart Hidden in depth, but shouting out Cream-filled, pure, delicate and refined Honestly spread even, a fine gold-mine Waiting and ready for me to entwine!
The search has just begun
The find of an intelligent being To interact with and be part of the scene!
Wishing on a rare kind of star To humour and bring out the hidden dark!
Waiting for the magnanimous universe To select, delete, investigate and uncurse!
A graze of good fortune, in much abundance Droplets of good luck on this prance Filled with stupendous hope and lit up darts Giving a firm but gentle nuance!
Worries aside, fear and expectations by the side Extremely good thoughts and focus in mind The skies are looking positively clear Brimming full of my endless cheer!
02 January 2019
I was born today
Many years ago, they say!
Repeated year after year Changes, bright and clear!
Onwards, without any fear Some normal, others extraordinary 2018 was my sanctuary!
I grew, I understood, Realising many of life’s lessons A culmination of past errors and misfortune Rounded now my itinerary!
But even better still, it is today 2019, will be my year of breakthrough Fearlessly leading, guiding, ready to adapt, stay and sway!
Free of the shackles placed on me, now in the past Free at last, watch me fly, into this world so beautifully vast!
Gratitude to my friends, even my foes For you have always kept me on my toes!

The complicities of love
Laid bare emotions Fulfilment of devotion Enriching dormant dead imagination!
Intricately binding at every pore Feelings of astonishing galore Ring in the new, lovely dew Enlisting joy as one of the many few!
Picture perfect at a glance Try it then, take a seldom chance Feel not barred nor battered nor inflicted Ending may vary, worth it even if restricted!
Promises and vows
Rich in binding thy very now Open to the merge, souls conflicted Bear this in mind for when indicted!

Unchain my soul
Unhook my desire Unbind this precious fire Burning my entire!
Unsing your devoted words Take me on a voyage, leave the dirt In line with this situational birth Unsaddled, muddled back on to earth!
Separated and freed Falling away, into the sheets No…No…. Hesitation rises deep Back towards you, I want to leap!
Protect my fall, usher in your call Chained now, beginning my crawl!
Art – Nautical Chain by artist Billye Woodford
Tell me what’s your addiction?
Or free are you from all incapacitations?
Many are there, recognise we just a few Enhanced feelings of goodness Reinforcing behaviour, even rewarding You feel like new!
Seemingly innocent, careful to ignore High price we pay as a society Financially even worse in fatality!
Worth not this short term reward If its end is a lifetime long term way backward!
Find your passion in something else No better time than now, restart Many are there: music, knowledge, growth even art!
For you are an important part of a whole Forget this not, respect yourself, body and soul!
