do you care for me at all?
i scream above the smoke,
eyes are flitting,
vision blurred,
grey pouring down my throat.

was there any truth at all?
touch me, make me fall.
was there any truth at all?
take me, take my all.

am i going mad for you,
my darling sacred first?
will you shake my mind tonight,
shake me till i burst?

will i ever find you again?
i'll keep squinting through the smoke,
close my eyes and count to ten,
hanging on to hope

we suffered for this art,
we bled upon the pages,

we suffer for our hearts,
and cover up the grazes.

in all their glory

keep your heart burning with love and rage,
as long as there's something shaking the cage,
as long as it's beating and writhing and feeling,
watch it fly
from ceiling to ceiling.

keep it beating through the pain,
through laboured beats,
through guilt and shame,
a battered heart can still bring joy,
like a small child's chosen scruffy toy.

as long as there's a lesson learnt,
for beautiful light a candle is burnt,
in every bruise there hides a story,
so flash their colours
in all their glory.

crazy sunny

glows and glows of little pleasures,


shining through,

the subtle smiles, the shifting glances,

at lights shining new.

shimmer for me, golden honey,

you know you can shine,

today is glowing crazy sunny,

like today is mine.

the wind is tapping on my back,

softly nudging me,

there’s shapes in the clouds,

i’m guessing and laughing,

at things i think they could be.

start with a kiss and end with the rest.

great big singing mouths with nothing to say,
with minds far beneath them screaming away,
people see and minds start to wander,
what are their motives, i start to ponder...

a kiss is a moment of love in some.
others pure lust, and others for fun,
a kiss is a moment craved by all,
how can it be an action so small?

and who am i to judge a moment of another?
deep in the shadows, under the covers,
deep in the recesses of somebody's mind,
that moment is theirs, and not mine to find,

for your lips can declare a thousand emotions,
it is but a drop in a swirling blue ocean
the taste of a droplet can reveal a dark depth
a kiss, oh that kiss, is complex to confess

watch how it smoulders, the strongest will fall,
feel how it burns, fight the siren's call,
start with a kiss and end with the rest,
keep those hearts beating out of those chests.
