HOTEL BALCONY

Poetry,
should all these words be a fabric surviving your nakedness
when you get off the shower in time to read my message,
and just before you choke in your chuckle
wondering what my bad habits have fed me today,
the sun rays feeding from the glow of your skin
and reflecting on to my damned mind,
that image sculptured on medulla;
let me steal you for a ride.

Through the flurries let my lips embrace your body
and when you think you’re scared, look into my eyes,
it’s the real you in there;
standing before me in full moxie,
poison in her eyes,
my pride having it’s last.
You should see her stir the beauty of the world,
resting on her head like a crown,
a royalty that got me down on one knee.

Tonight I’m aiming for the bullseye of your fantasies
and I can tell I’m almost there by the sound of your breathless moans
so go ahead and tear the last of my bedsheets.
My backs is all tattooed in your scratches,
sometimes it’s dangerous around you but I’m born for the rush
and you’re at the edge of the world now,
jump and I’ll catch you.
Let’s dive into our space,
an infinite bliss and moments to relive.
In my arms your demons sedated,
we can steal a look at the promised land
just enough not to make a mess again.
Paradise in your lips!
Who mixed your portions?
I want to empty your curiosity,
fill your head with my name
and every time whisper it through a gasp,
like you want me to stop
but the storms in your eyes rage otherwise.
I can read your mind out loud,
the goosebumps on your skin are like braille;
quite a writer you got.

Regret Stare

He was a myopic fool devoid of a future
but she had sunk to her feet in his mire,
blinded by his cozen smile.
She wanted to so badly float his boat
expecting a reciprocal of trust and true love from him
even when he had no flimsy idea of what it meant;
he’d won the favour in her eyes,
held his stones in his pouch,
his bird safe in the cage.

All this time she was barking the wrong tree
but the desire to make it work stole her second thought;
a sucker for love fed on the wrong diet.
He was a scavenger in the night,
left no stone unturned.
That was the only time he loved her,
it was all he was after
and she filled his plate with flavour,
Always the provider.

She showed up to his birthday party in her red velvet dress,
dressed to impress,
only a trophy over his friends
and three months later his line was dead,
when she’d bailed from her mates to make it her best night. Now she had to blow her candles alone,
and top her cake with tears.
The lonely night called out to her senses,
She learned her lesson.

French Nights

The night was sore with lust
She was ripe with desire,
All she wanted was to sail as steered by his mast.
He wanted to dive into her fire,
So somehow he found himself on that waist;
More than just a masterpiece of geometry.
Her lips were caviar in his,
The tang took him to the last grain.
She was made of star dust
Her sparkle stole his sight.
The way he loved her people thought him insane
But she got him on checkmate,
His fantasy’s twin size.
What’s a hippie on crack cocaine?
He worshiped her into his heart.
What other prize should he want
She came with everything else.
The world belonged to him when she was around
And when she bit on his muscles
Then smiled in impunity,
That’s when his pieces came together;
He can’t tame the lengths his smile stretches to.
His world is anchored to her heart
He can never rock away.

Paris And Helen

I can’t remember where we met,
I was thinking with my heart.
And the night we spent,
You made the while worth it,
Took my heart and split it;
Changed me from a Clerk Kent
And only you got the kryptonite.
I can’t get you off my sight,
I’m blind without your light.

I’m Paris from Troy,
My sword is promised to Helen,
Not even Zeus in heaven,
She’s here to stay.

Don’t mind if they don’t treat you the same,
They only know your name,
Can’t see the picture inside the frame,
Neither understand how we rhyme,
Don’t let them waste our time.
Only two in this team,
Am the shield, she’s the firearm.
They wonder how we won the game,
We’re toasting to kingdom come.

A day to another,
Closer and closer,
In this world together.
My mind like a feather,
Looking for another,
You caught me midair.
Within your radius I tether,
Diving hand-in-hand into the future,
You’ve made me a man sweeter.

I’m Paris from Troy,
My sword is promised to Helen,
Not even Zeus in heaven,
She’s here to stay.

The Two Story

You’re mine since the first page,
It’s only right the tale gains to the end
Then a happily ever after;
What we have lives beyond time.

You’re the landlord of my dreams
And I want a room in your heart too,
Tag every moment I treasure with your smile,
I’m only worth in your while.

My thoughts are paintings from your inspiration,
The detail never lies.
Deep inside is a fire,
You’ve fueled a desire.

I’m only known to you,
You cleaned out the skeletons in my closet
And suffocate my fears with your energy,
I’m loving the adventure in this journey.

We don’t care about the destination,
We’ve read all the signs along the road.
I’m strapped in her love,
I’ll make it there safe.

Strawberrys & Chocolate

And you got your mama’s eyes,
That woman raised you right,
That’s why you deserve the best,
I want you to live in my arms.
I’m pinned down by these ties,
That’s the heart’s want,
I gave up the fight,
Always be yours.

Your smile in sunrise,
Like the sun came up for your light,
Your body wrapped up in bed sheet,
You’re my fantasy’s right size.

I got our song on replays,
We can dance all through the night,
Don’t switch on the light,
We might jump into extras,
Just the two of us,
Dare you to the highest height,
Be sure to hold on tight,
Am letting loose.

I’ve tightened up my ends,
I’m suited for the flight,
The weather seems right,
I hope this plane never lands.

I won the ultimate prize,
I’m never getting you off my sight,
You’re the only one to do me right,
It’s you my heart wants to please.
We both know what this is,
Cupid shot at my chest,
You got me the antidote,
It’s time I settle the scores.

The Lornes

I lay at the ocean, the salt through my veins,
Approach with caution, I’m still healing my wounds,
A heart broken, love thrown to the wolves.
A mind taken, my world down the drains,
A tear to follow every question, only pain got me the answers.
I so badly waited on the rain, the fervor washed away in its acid showers,
Where’s the angel on the train, fate and destiny are a bunch of cowards
Scared of the fire sparked by this feeling, our hearts building towers.
No longer drinking on the same proportion, maybe it’ll sink in with ten more bottles,
Vengeance isn’t my intention, I’m done with love and lies.
