Touched

My world it turned to fog

I didn’t want the detail crowding in

And so I blanked it out

Specifics aren’t where I wish to begin

I’m crawling back to life

I cannot stay in limbo ever more

But not yet standing up

I wonder if I’ll ever leave the floor

And you who put me here

So proud of all that you have done for me

But I forgive you now

Your hatred cannot stop me if I’m free

You think that I am weak

Refuse to play your petty little game

But you can’t touch me now

For I am here and I have found my name

Same:Difference

Everyday is different

Everyday the same

Everyday my difference

Others seek to blame

One day I may falter

One day standing tall

One day this will alter

Barriers can fall

Everyone is special

Everyone unique

Everyone has questions

Answers that we seek

We can make a difference

We are much the same

We ensure that different

Isn’t cause for shame

Duel

Was taken for a ride I knew I’d like it

Unspeakable the things that have been done

And if your mind was opened you could try it

I fear you’re not a liberated one

So highly strung I sense that you might snap it

Restrained and yet you’re not a bondage fan

I look into your eyes and I can see it

Depravity it permeates this man

Release yourself I don’t know why you fight it

The urge is just a part of who you are

Submit and you will be allowed to bite it

No taste that can’t be found in this bazaar

Desire and lust can be a heady mixture

You look like you can handle what’s to come

My gauntlet’s thrown and so we have a fixture

Your pistol’s cocked so I can draw my gun

Here I Am

Who’s the captain? Where’s the ship

Crest of wave and then the dip

Nearly drowning half afloat

Out at sea without a boat

Lost in desert shifting sand

Nothing quite as I had planned

My oasis now mirage

Little problem looming large

Soaking wet or arid dry

Life’s a bitch I can’t deny

Struggle just catch my breath

Here I am but so bereft

The Normal

The window opens just a crack

A breeze to stir the dust around

The stranger’s gone and won’t be back

My feet are firmly on the ground

He came and stole my breath away

The wind was taken from the sail

I never thought I’d see the day

That I’d be fresh and he’d be stale

My strength is not in arm and fist

But I’m a man of soul and mind

And finally I said desist

No longer need that love unkind

The dust will settle soon and then

The normal will return again

Being

In being only his I am myself

Not sharing makes this specialty unique

I saw a man and stepped down from shelf

He answers all the questions that I seek

In being only him he is divine

Simplicity and strength within his smile

Imperfect yet we fit when we combine

I want this to continue for a while

In being only what we’re born to be

We bring such happiness upon our heads

And others disapprove or disagree

But why are they concerned about our beds

In being only human we’re the same

And love is not a source of guilt and shame

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
