There’s Something About You

Theres something
Something about you
In the way you talk
The air where you walk
From all the pain I’d felt before
Theres something
Something about you
About the way you hear my thoughts
Without a word
Without a look
You know
My own mind; more out of touch
Theres something about
Something about you
About the way your eyes hypnotise
Recognise the pain
And wash it away
Theres something
Something about you
Something about the way you know
Everything about me
Without a word
Without a look
Your touch;
My medicine


How do they do that?

Your eyes

Picking the locks of my mind

Crumbling the walls that the years built

Warding off the demons that lay beyond them

Transforming me into something new

Once I was a caterpillar, creeping cautiously

Now, something content and beautiful

A butterfly, beautiful enough to be loved

And to love unwavering

Are They Better?

Bitter words spoken
Are they Better?
or worse than
those left unsaid

Shouting, screaming, tears
Are they Better?
Or worse than
An unnaproving silence

Arguments and fights
Are they better?
Or worse than
Not being yours.

A Wish

I wish upon a star tonight,

Let all be well come morning light.

May all our woes wash away

And our pain disappear for just one day.

Lucky in Love

Into our hearts you walk on all fours

Leaving a mark upon it with your paws

A wagging tale and grinning face

A loyal friend in this lonely place


You give so much, asking little in return

On this earth only briefly, you’ve no lessons to learn

Yet so much knowledge you endow, you teach us so much

your life; only a fraction of those that you touch


How did we get so lucky? What did we do to deserve,

Someone so kind, who’d never duck nor swerve?

A protector always, no care for their own pain

No issue do they have when you’re going insane.
