There was no escape
Too young
Too weak
Trapped by circumstance
From birth
We seek
A way out
A way forward
A reason to be
More than they make us
More than they see

These fractures now mended
These bones won’t comply
To the rules of another
Who won’t even try
A change of perspective
Or a thought
For the hurt
That veils you in darkness
As you rise from the dirt

All the words from love lost
Become swords over time
As you bare out your chest
To cut out their crimes
And the mind becomes static
Charged with a sense
A purpose and reason
That demands they repent


The Temperate Flush

Posted in Writing with tags , , , , on 22/01/2018 by GeoSolus

The throne of infancy
Between her thighs
Where the sands of time
Become pearls

All the wealth in the world
Still cannot buy
The most precious of gifts
From a girl

She may have grace
And an elegant pace
All the teachings
Of a social caste

But a mother she knows
What will break
What will flow
With a love that will always hold fast

So be wary my friend
Not all sexual ends
Will bring you what matters the most
The conception is fast
But the love will not last
Unless a mother
Is the chosen host

The Wanderer

Posted in Writing with tags , , , , on 18/01/2018 by GeoSolus

A mystery
A dead bolt slides
The dead of night
A child is stirred
Without fright
His sleepy eyes
Rubbed in to focus
To catch a glimpse
Of those among us
A solitary
Little girl
Quietly laughs
Finger to curl
Follow me
She slyly says
For we are one
And yet I’m dead
Arise my boy
Shake from your slumber
For one and one
Is now our number
With sleight of hand
And shadow play
We shall dance
Until that day

The Creator

A cold beer and a cigarette
Wired to the machine
Writing a requiem
And purging old dreams
These days have been counted
Each breath on the clock
Giving heart to the world
Before that heart stops

Just a voice in the dark
Drowning in noise
Reflecting a life
A life that destroys
The promise it made
At the point of creation
Another mistake
A sharp deviation

From the word to the act
An elaborate myth
That robs you of hope
Then asks you forgive
Their ways of deceit
Their treacherous tongues
As they kill all you love
Then hand you the gun

Vengeance they say
The cold hand of death
Be righteous with fury
It’s all you have left
But you lay down the weapon
And pick up the pen
For each thought recorded
Will live past your end

I know it well
I can smell it
See it
Feel it’s consequences
So at first scent
Glimpse or echo
I shut it down

One step back
For better judgement
Do not sympathise
Cut straight
To the chase
With a stone cold face
And the truth
Will burn them down

In His Image

Iris V1 PNG

She said
Be more, be better
Aspire to inspire
With line and with letter

Forever can form
In the dreams
In the hearts
If you mold their souls
And teach them your art

Shooting Star

Posted in Writing with tags , , , on 08/12/2017 by GeoSolus

Counting the rounds
From her ivory tower
Watching the silhouettes
Scurry below
A well oiled bolt
Slides back from the chamber
With a ten mile smile
And a nose full of blow

Brass necking
Brass Cases
Ding on the floor
All that abhors

On the hair pin
In the ranks
The brass
In the pocket
Pumping rounds
In to the banks

Old ghosts are in the shadows
Blades drawn under cloaks
With merchants of suicide
And media smoke
The silhouettes fall
Each round counting down
And the survivors are left
To polish her crown
