The Guardian

Posted in Writing with tags , , , , , , on 16/02/2019 by GeoSolus

Love me
Hate me
See if I care
There is no burden
That can’t be shared
I’ll carry you
If you fall
But I won’t let you fall

Be just
Hold trust
And play fair
There is nothing in life
Too hard to bare
I’ll pick you up
When you are down
But I won’t let you fall

Consequence

Posted in Writing with tags , , , on 14/02/2019 by GeoSolus

No hand held
Just a fist
A threat
Then a sorry

There was no one there for me
But I’ll be there for for you

I’ve been there
Done that
I know the score
Carry the scars
And what’s more
I survived

I burn bright
Hit hard
But that doesn’t mean
I don’t care

A Man And His Shadow

I am the wolf
Elusive and wild
Watching you
Watch me
As I approach
From the cold
Fire on my breath
Hell in my heart
Pumping blood
Like a raging river

I know no forgiveness

Nature made me
What I am
Now I return
The favour
With sharpened wits
Tempered thoughts
I devour
The forgiver

Beacon

Nothing happened
Nothing will
This balance
Must be struck
A status quo
This I know
Is not a game
Of luck

A mind full
Of fantasies
If only
They were true
I’d build a world
Where I could feel
Then let that light
Shine through

Dice

We play a dangerous game
Not for the gains
But because death is a certainty
Whether we play or refrain…

The Alliance

She took a band of gold
And placed it on her skin
Wished for sweet forever
To the high notes of a hymn

A song for all those lovebirds
With a light spring in their step
Hope bursting in their hearts
And a promise to be kept

But time saw the gold vanish
And sorrow in the song
A discord in the romance
A fissure in the strong

Hope soon turned cold
As hunger slowly grew
And love no longer felt
That she could remain true

So she took some printed paper
And placed it in her heart
Crisp, new and shiny
The promise fell apart

And time saw her youth vanish
Like a dead fish in the sun
Dried out and fading slowly
Still wishing for the one

Blunt

The edge dulled
Too many battles
That last conversation
Proved fatal
The end bypassed
By some strange
Twist of fate
We had a moment
That no longer relates
And I dive
In to this hopelessness
Hoping it concludes

Never mind
It doesn’t matter
It’s past
It’s gone
But not as gone
As I am
