The first hour

And leaning in a touch of hands

While looking at the picture snaps

And time so very still it stands

Not wanting moments to elapse

We stole an hour at no one’s cost

As from the mundane we escaped

My cares were sixty minutes lost

As in your voice my mind was draped

Let’s meet again as worlds collide

And I can be alone with you

Tectonic plates our hands that slide

We crack the earth creating new

In shifting you have pulled me near

Those minutes gone so precious dear

Tied Up In Nots

Sitting in the park in the dark not holding hands

Kissing you so sweet so complete not saying no

Talking on your bed so much said not making love

Holding in the night really tight not letting go

Falling into love hand in glove not knowing how

Evening we first met can’t forget knot ties us now

No matter

My orbit isn’t centred where you are

For in my universe you seem so small

My revolution’s fixed on distant star

Another body has me in its thrall

I’ll leave and travel far in outer space

Regretting nothing trusting in my heart

And on arrival there will be a face

The one that calls my name across the dark

Energy so constant in its flow

Tomorrow will not matter I was here

The other will be all you want to know

And from your thoughts I’ll slowly disappear

I know that when I meet him we will shine

The light will carry on through space and time

Not

Wanting you not wanting me

Perverse

Being had not having you

Was worse

Longing for the absence of

A touch

Finding what I wanted was

Too much

Dwelling in a place I don’t

Belong

Sleeping by your side it felt

So wrong

Waking far from you I was

Alone

Asking you to never take

Me home

Loving hating you is where

We are

Wallowing in sorrow how

Bizarre

Youth

I see you standing there

You want to scratch an itch

But do not look to me

For I won’t queer your pitch

This game is not for me

Too big a fish for fry

I know you’re curious

But I’m not good to try

So pick a younger fruit

And taste a sweeter dish

For I am bitter now

And I won’t grant your wish

So find a better man

To lose yourself within

For I am far to old

To be where you begin
