My Secret Hiding Place

Once upon a time 

When my heart was very 

Young up into the 

Sky my eyes would 

Gaze upon the clouds floating 

So very high above

With my dreams out 

Of reach my mind roamed hither

And yon quite freely

To a place where those

Who sought to hurt me could never 

Go no matter how hard

They tried to find me

The land of forbidden daydreams

Bid me to come alone

My Own Space

Within the cage of your expectations 

My heart is entrapped 

Longs to be free of your mind games

All my heart desires is a place 

To call it’s own 

Where it can roam unchained 

My needs are quite simple a 

Rented room will do

Anywhere I can call my own 

Where you cannot follow 

Seek to stifle 

My independent thinking

Long Ago

On a lazy summer

Afternoon we lay within 

Each other’s arms

Upon a hammock

Ever so slowly rocking 

Within the breeze

When no one else

Was looking we stole a kiss

From each other

As the sun fell over

The distant horizon the moon

Sailed high above us

With each other

We fell head over heels

In love long ago 

Woman’s True Beauty

The older a woman gets all she has left

Is the inner Beauty

Or ugliness she has chosen to cultivate

I would rather converse with a woman

Who looks are plain yet pleasant

Then suffer a pretty women’s contempt

Like a candle her smile lit up the room

When she walked in took my

breath away – my heart go pitter pat

A good woman is sweet as honey

A bad woman spoiled

And rotten tis best to be avoided

Come My Dearest Love

​Like a hapless moth to the 

Burning flame

Your eyes draw me all the

Closer until

My trembling body finds it

Self nestled

Within the harbor of your

Embrace shielded

From the chaos of our world

My own father’s

Cruel hatred who killed your

Dearest love

Come my darling take me to 

The heights of 

Pleasure let us share together

The life force

Taken from our not quite so 

Innocent prey

Replenish our life and powers

The Seaview*

Against all odds they raced to

Save the world

Within the depths of the deep

Blue sea from 

The Maws of giant creatures

They escaped 

Overcame enemies within and 

From without 

Yet managed to fire the missile 

On time to 

Extinguish the fire burning our 

World to a cinder

To sail home as hero’s in victory
