Distinct Aroma



Smells 
evoke memories.
Unpleasant aromas
make me think of you,
and smile
unkindly.

Not Sure...


Pro's and Con's
 A rational person 
considers

How long before considering
becomes indecisiveness?

Will indecisiveness cripple, 
not make a decision at all?

If no clear decision rises to the top,
just pick one, 
any decision is better than none.

But Wait, There's More - Right?


Yes, it's been wet outside lately,
I might watch some cooking shows later...

But I will not become imprisoned
staring into the 'black mirror'
switching off to life
 watching it get played out by actors.

I want to play in my own drama,
go to interesting places,
meet interesting people
I want to suck 
every last drop of juice
out of life.

Evil Eclipse



When I smile at you
and you don't return 
my gift of happiness

You reveal
your dank and rotten soul 
where even seeds of kindness
are scared to grow.

Revolving Mouth



I'm an addict
But not a gritty or glamorous one.

My words of eloquence 
come out of the same mouth,

that masticates
more than my recommended portion...

I can't fake it...


Connecting with a fake personality
Is as satisfying as holding a doll
in place of a real baby.

Get some Lego out
go make yourself a fake house.

Threat to Womankind


Disease of the soul 
is really what's killing the world.

Inject some love and peace 
into your life

Make your personality, love and caring,
as contagious as possible.

An epidemic of peace
would be great thanks.

High as a Kite


But can we ever enjoy the feeling
without the fear of the fall.

And, can we count on the safety net
to be strong enough when we do...

Passionate Hate


And isn't the power of passion
the same feeling whether love or hate?

 A heart racing ride regardless of perspective,
culminating in different acts.

And regardless, 
we are powerless in it's grip
and vulnerable to the havoc.







What's under the Hood?


A shiny exterior 
can never make up for
an engine with no substance.

Fuel your life
with love and laughter

the cogs of the past 
that keep your life
ticking over

Filtering Life


And perhaps the perfect light
of an eclipse
would add to the beauty.

All of Earth looks beautiful
from space.

And yet we know
 there are horrors
that we filter out.

The Sweet Spot


Whether by force of habit and expectation,
or by necessity,
we are bound to face the reality,
of our lives.

But we must work towards our dreams,
despite the storm of protest
about its value.

Spending your waking time,
making your dreams 
your reality
is where happiness floats.

Fear of Wild Things


Wild love
has fear at its core.

Fear of losing,
that which is so precious.

Fear of getting hurt.

Fear that it will destroy you.

Elastic Heart


A lack of affection
punches the soul.

A jolt of power 
that halts the heart.

Pleasure and Pain

Is it best to have a firm grasp,
or a warm, loose, hold?

In hard, challenging times,
Should we lean back,
firm against the restraint?

Or let go with hope,
that fluttering,
will occur,
and not a plummet.

Calm after the Storm



Because it no longer beats,
it sighs with resignation.
This heart is now
a hardened muscle
in rehab

High Achiever



I guess achieving highly is just in the blood.
What has she achieved you may ask?

This high quality woman you see before you,
and that alone is enough!

The Scent of Perfection



Waft that shit around with pride,
because you stand out from the crowd.

You are a high achiever,
you've perfected your craft.

You're a perfect arsehole.

Shine Bright Like a Diamond



Because sparkling fingers
are no where near as precious

as the smile on my face
when I spend time with loved ones...
