Snap chat masking me
What is Masculinity?
His story is mine.
Wheels of the divine?
Magnolia tears screeching
Preaching can’t reach in
Chat rooms and emails
Soul ties and habits
Are they devils or detail?
On the ropes and off the rails
All is vanity
All I’ve got is me
Hands low chin tucked backing up.
Trying to give a
Swing for upper crust
Walk on to the uppercut
Dying to give a
Mourning a mauling
Stabbing at stepping forward
Falling without love.
Ballads and parables
Man of cool to manacles
Just a wailing wall
I stopped by your poems
Hugged them line by line
Our heartbeats fell as silken petals
This long lost love made Courtney Pine
Silence eavesdropped on mystic kisses
Eager vibrations rekindled the affair
Your swirling prose meditative.
My unchained cadences cohesive
Perceptive curtains arrange our winds though
Love isn’t lost if the heart’s still beating
Is this mine or our evocative secret?
A final kiss on our achievements?
The silence still eavesdrops
The longing lusts evermore.
The ship has sailed, but the sea lingers
Her fingers still fondle my timbers
The spine kindles like tinder.
Blocks shading the so-called rub of the green, my heart beats turn to cinders
When I look into the future and remember I kiss my present with the question.
Why does the sea linger?
19 stone smile was bad, like Mike in 87
Until I met the real miss jackson with her hips and twisted melon
Quiet dog and a fruit cake for whom love was a never.
18 years were two words and (an) escaped life sentence
The mirror separated the pedant from the peasant.
In the future an atheist would bring a Christian to repentance
Dating was a time of the month, lust seemed so feral
It was perpetual rebounding until I found my level
If you’re travelling without moving, how do you know haven’t settled?
The love of love was a drug and for pot I never kettled
Not a man united but experience made for a read devil
Making music without producing, I lied to heavy meddle
Hope my nemesis forgives me for being the herb to her petal
Not everyone’s cup of tea but she knew I deserved better.
Would have loved sons but clouds didn’t produce our weather
My love story’s a challenge
With every page I’m counting blessings
I thought my 19 stone smile was bad like Mike in 87
I was a child then and a child then
After 36 months of emptying my vessel to find my forever
I grew up and realised she was simply the start of the lesson
With the examination my ties were shredded
In 6 years of wrestling I’ve done turn buckle swallow dives
My heart learnt to swallow knives
To see if they would cut it I found myself to lose my mind
Sometimes you need a bare soul to grow into your shoe size
Now my 19 stone smile is someone’s 10 or 25
As my smile
Is now mine
I’ve been that over zealous Casanova
My supernova’s sleeping on me
Now the flow’s diluted with copious suspicion
Can Jesus still save me if I abort this mission?
I screen time hoping my fears stop watching me
I need those collard greens to replenish my pasture
I’m pastoring my reasoning, preaching prosperity to my pondering
Drowning in the flood of next steps
I am the last breath of a frog prince
The kiss of death may be my only hope
If resurrection is for believers am I agnostic?
I’m weaving memorials with prophecy like a cross-stitch
Cull me or crown me, I’ll live or learn what loss is
I am a badger calling a spade a spade in a game of hearts
I’m on a bored walk hoping cupid can re-tip that dart
I am 180 degrees of honesty on reflection so I know in part
I impart jewels of liberation like engagement rings through inception
Is the kiss of death classed as a public sign of affection?
If so I’m collecting autographs hoping to sell them to the highest bidder
Storage wars rumble on and if I lose I’m a sinner, if I win I’m a saint
Without honour in defeat there’ll be a new past to date
So I watch and wait for that one six o’ eight
