The look he gave was one of such disdain
As if he caught a whiff of open drain
He promised he would never come again
I stripped the sheets from bed where we had lain
He thinks that I’m to blame for his desire
That somehow I ignite eternal fire
That burning in his groin will not expire
But I am just a fan to take it higher
The thing he can’t abide is found within
Discomfort lurks beneath that perfect skin
And what I think is beauty labelled sin
He sees himself as lost for giving in
Compassion is the love that I will show
This hate of self a pain I also know

The Art

When beauty walked into the room I drew
My breath and wondered had he asked for me
As if my language I forgot I knew
I stood before him struck so silently
An artist with my canvasses of lust
So huge in public gallery not hung
But beauty isn’t something art should trust
For surface isn’t where our work is done
Undress the beauty show what lies beneath
And let me draw your breath into my soul
The canvas of your heart has sparked belief
A brush of lips and I have lost control
I stripped my love and now I have to find
The art to capture beauty in the mind

The Journeyman

A wander through the backwater that day
A fly was hooked and baited on the line
The listener who had so much to say
And talked as if they owned the whole of time
Seduction of the mind a subtle art
The conversation lingered in the air
The mind is often route to find the heart
The thoughts are planted left to blossom there
The ripples of the mind that mark depart
For backwaters are places few would choose
The culmination so close after start
But what is gained we never truly lose
A chance encounter brief and bitter sweet
A journeyman will leave after the meet 


It transpired
When I enquired
Eternal fired
Yet love expired
I am left
My warp not weft
Not quite bereft
But we are cleft
He was right
No troth to plight
That torrid night
We saw the light
Judge has gavelled
We unravelled
Path untravelled
Rid me of
That hand in glove
From push came shove
I’m out of love


Cover me discover me and take what I have left
For you I can be nothing but without you I’m bereft
Only when you offer do I notice what I lack
Now is all we have and we are never coming back
Fill my empty crevices with ectasy and pain
When I’m feeling better you can fuck me up again
You are what I need to make my life an empty place
We can make a void and we can fill it up with space
Take our lives and hide them in the loneliness we share
Promise me tonight that in the morning you’re not there


I must remind the baptist brotherhood
Not just in Westboro but let’s be clear
That Jesus was for love and doing good
Not hatred, bigotry and causing fear
An international day against the hate
Of gay and bi and trans and all things queer
Now that is something to which I relate
On every day and not just once a year
Remove the blackness from your heart for gays
Our fellow human beings all are parts
Of tapestry so rich in many ways
A weft and warp of many loving hearts
A happy rainbow day my friend to you
Our love can paint the world in every hue

The Rainbow

My family is all around the world
The rainbow is how we identify
The L G B and T flag is unfurled
I see it and it makes me want to cry
For freedom isn’t shared in equal parts
In places they would kill someone like me
I look at Russia and it breaks my heart
That people aren’t allowed to simply be
But I’m a human just the same as you
A brain, a heart, a life that’s mine to live
So why do others judge the things I do
My life it isn’t theirs to take or give
I hope one day that every one will see
The rainbow signifying liberty
