Communication Breakdown

Who are you forgetting me

Message in bottle sent

Thought like waves across the sea

Written words you never meant

Where are you belonging now

Sharing all I gifted you

Want to stop my longing how

Changing isn’t what I do

Why did constant come to end

Can forever never last

Like a book to freely lend

Future from disrupted past

Question you don’t give your word

All the silence I have heard

Advertisements

The grace

The bitter hides within

But in will always out

The dark that has been cast

No shadow in the doubt

To lose the love of self

Neglect can habit form

No wonder then the care

Became so tired and worn

Humane has ceased to be

The anger lacking hope

A human being sad

Whose goal is just to cope

What problems do they face

And there but for the grace

Falling

A river urging onward to the shore

The banks a prison stop it flowing free

The force so natural surging in my vein

Restrained I could not choose what I would be

My course was dammed you would not brook my dream

But I will flood convention and destroy

My rocky bed was not what you desire

And you no longer thirst that I enjoy

I am the sea my heart now saline washed

My ocean just a drop in your disdain

My flow won’t ebb so dry the pointless stream

My passing will allow you to remain

And if you ever think upon that spring

Just know I don’t regret the falling in

Being

Contemplating all I never was

Reflecting on the paths I didn’t take

Cogitating what and if because

Perception of the self is what’s at stake

Steps I’ve taken wonder were they go

A merry dance that somehow landed here

Worry in my head and yet I know

That nothing can be worse than what I fear

Time to put a stop to all this thought

Procrastinating traps us in the mind

Clear my head and take a little a walk

The joy of not quite sure what I might find

All I never was will never be

And thus I am a human being me

Jasmine Tea

Take a glass of jasmine tea and sit with me a while

See the frown that’s on your face transform into a smile

Life can take us places that we never dreamed were true

When you need to feel at home I’ve time to share with you

Life is an adventure but when things are getting rough

Just remember gentle can be just strong as tough

Use your heart, engage your mind before you choose to fight

Just because someone is wrong does not give you the right

Child you are so lucky having everything you need

Choose the path of kindness and I know you will succeed

You will leave your teacher soon beneath the shady tree

But tell me of your hope and fears and drink some jasmine tea.

Roundabout

I went to work. I wandered home. My life was simplified.

For I was there and all alone with no one at my side.

The roundabout of love for me was not an easy ride.

No pity please! I can survive. I’m made of stronger stuff.

That playground’s made me realise that I can be so tough.

I have my health and sense of self, for now that is enough.

I see you look. I see the eyes. You want to ask me why.

Am I aloof, unpopular, or simply high and dry?

That sombre and unsmiling man who watches you pass by.

You turn around. I feel your gaze. You pierce me deep inside.

And all the pain and hurt that over years I’ve tried to hide,

You comprehend and validate then gently put aside.

You take my hand. You swing my heart. You turn my insides out.

You want to change my life and that you can, I have no doubt.

I go to work but simple has become more roundabout.

Being: Human

So take a little look at me

I wonder what your eyes will see

Perhaps my disability

Or all the things I cannot be

More than a sexuality

I’m deep in my complexity

With spectrum seen disorderly

So when you try to label me

Make sure it’s three dimensionally

In being human I can be

A mass of possibility

A friend to you potentially

So open up your eyes and see

There’s good in all humanity
