There’s a hunger deep within calling me,
a voice I can’t quite hear.
My desire for something that isn’t free
is binding me to my need.
There’s a need I have that can’t be satiated,
it calls to you I know.
It tricks me because it needs to be fed,
it tells you I want you.
There’s a want in me that cannot be seen,
a lust that can’t be tamed.
It doesn’t care for truth or what has or hasn’t been.
its just starving for flesh.
Poem twenty six http://napowrimo.com
10:02 all over the world,
It’s summertime and
the cult is breeding.
A solitary music box opens,
a circle game begins.
Let me be your lady for today
in the chemical world.
I’m drowning in a tunnel…
The bombs have fallen.
Poem twenty three http://napowrimo.com
Constrained and bound,
Held at ransom.
Every decision governed,
Free will removed,
It’s ‘for the best’
‘The only way’
‘My best chance’
Rejecting the truth.
And in time I breathe,
The air is clear,
The chains unwind.
Poem twenty-two http://napowrimo.com
A son is carved from fathers love and
Moulded by his hate and indifference,
A mother watches patiently and aches.
Her arms grow weak from holding them up
and her back sore from their burden.
She weeps tears for a future that
though unwritten is set in stone.
Poem Twenty One
What is just in grasp seems so far away,
what can’t be seen seems so near yet
I cannot reach it.
The never-ending torment of frustration is eased
by each shuffling step,
Each worn out sign is rewarded by
a nearing, a getting closer, an almost there
‘This counter is now closed, Thankyou’
Poem twenty http://napowrimo.com
I forgot to write a poem yesterday,
Been reprimanding myself this eve,
I promised not to forget come what may,
To write the words that I really believe,
In order to say what I mean.
Poem nineteen http://napowrimo.com
The weight of words I want to say
is pressing down on me.
A familiar sound, face or voice
and suddenly you’re there.
I feel your presence though it can’t be true.
Every fleeting glance in a crowd
reminds me I should be looking.
Searching for something that can’t be found.
I look at a vast sky that houses us both,
and wonder silently where you are.
I will you to call out to us.
Every month that goes by you recede further,
to unknown corners of my memory.
I fear a day when you are lost completely.
Till then I am just searching for someone who can’t be found.
Poem eighteen – http://napowrimo.com
Guitar starts strumming,
Drums start crashing
And hips start shaking.
Come on down girl,
The night’s young,
The beats beginning.
Move towards the promise
Of an answer and a smile,
And don’t forget to dance.
Poem seventeen – http://napowrimo.com
On a grey old spring day
a girl plays a song,
playing it her way.
Everyone sings along.
He looks at her face,
thinking she looks lonely,
will she take her place?
He hopes & wishes if only.
A laughing face gleams
at the girl & boy sittin’
to onlookers it seems
she’s well & truly bitten.
Poem Sixteen –
Everyday I look
in the crowds for your face
where are you, missing.
