Careless Words

careless chiselled words
boldly carve into my heart
while i bleed for you

Your Whispers Echo

Between the boundaries
of dreams and nightmares
your whispers echo
drawing me away 
from reality
into phantasmic
where truth and lies
walk hand in hand
Your whispers echo
where desire knows
no beginning
no end
Your whispers echo
where love is 
but sweet words
on angels wings
Your whispers echo
where lost lovers
paper the walls
with images
and old love letters
Your whispers echo
chanting love spells
in the shadows
of my dreams

each beat of my heart measures
your footsteps
as you turn around and walk away
from me
this time it seems it will be the
last time
I wind the old clock standing in
the hall
pious hope to wish and wait for you
to return
listening to the tick-tock of the
old clock
each beat of my heart measures
your silence

As day lies
in the blush
of evening pastels
Night unfurls
her dusky wings
Sweeping shadows
and night shade
gently gathering
the darkness

is there anyone out there
in the wide blue yonder?
do you ever wonder?

if there's any somewhere
in the vastness of space
why avoid the human race?

will they be coming soon?
or have they already been?
are they pink or are they green?

are they from mars or the moon?
did they leave a legacy
a hybrid, or two, or three?

Darwin's evolution
or alien revolution?

Stargazing last night and saw this fabulous rainbow moon! Do you believe in aliens?

Through misty haze
where dusty snow lays
thoughts take flight
to giddy heights
the delusion
the mirage
the illusion

Between the cluttered echoes
of human experience
the voice beneath the silence
whispers to the spiritual being
'Reach not high up
But deep within'
