Black strands of hair
trapped in fibres of silk
Five days after I’d been and gone -

Moved so far past you
and that.
– Jen

Heaven bows
as the city sleeps
beneath gossamer wings
While I stand at the window
awaiting the Sun
Wide awake in my dream
– Jen

stormynights

Focused on the horizon
I prepare my eyes
to watch you leave my Life
But I can’t prepare myself
to see you live my dream
with someone else.
– Jen

There’s no light
on the Moon tonight

I’ve gone to the dark side
and I will be there a while
Consoling my Soul
Repairing my Smile.

‘I like to think that we had it all, We drew a map to a better place. But on that road I took a fall, Oh baby why did you run away?- Maroon 5

‘I miss the taste of a sweeter life
I miss the conversation
I’m searching for a song tonight
I’m changing all of the stations

I like to think that we had it all
We drew a map to a better place
But on that road I took a fall
Oh baby why did you run away?

I was there for you
In your darkest times
I was there for you
In your darkest night

But I wonder where were you
When I was at my worst
Down on my knees
And you said you had my back
So I wonder where were you
When all the roads you took came back to me

So I’m following the map that leads to you
The map that leads to you
Ain’t nothing I can do
The map that leads to you
Following, following, following to you
The map that leads to you
Ain’t nothing I can do
The map that leads to you
Following, following, following

I hear your voice in my sleep at night
Hard to resist temptation
‘Cause something strange has come over me
And now I can’t get over you
No, I just can’t get over you

I was there for you
In your darkest times
I was there for you
In your darkest night

But I wonder where were you
When I was at my worst
Down on my knees
And you said you had my back
So I wonder where were you
When all the roads you took came back to me

So I’m following the map that leads to you
The map that leads to you
Ain’t nothing I can do
The map that leads to you
Following, following, following to you
The map that leads to you
Ain’t nothing I can do
The map that leads to you

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Yeah yeah yeah
Oh oh

Oh, I was there for you
Oh, in your darkest time
Oh, I was there for you
Oh, in your darkest night

Oh, I was there for you
Oh, in your darkest time
Oh, I was there for you
Oh, in your darkest night

But I wonder where were you
When I was at my worst
Down on my knees
And you said you had my back
So I wonder where were you
When all the roads you took came back to me

So I’m following the map that leads to you
The map that leads to you
Ain’t nothing I can do
The map that leads to you
Following, following, following to you
The map that leads to you
Ain’t nothing I can do
The map that leads to you
Following, following, following’

[Against the odds]

In-between blue Sky
and calm Sea

I
glanced
right
into
Eternity

And You were there
still beside Me.
– Jen

You come at random times
overpowering Me
tugging at my Soul
whimpering and whining
like a Child…
Yet,
I’m left inconsolable
Never finding You around!!!
– Jen

[Frozen]

The
fire
we
fought
was
the
fire
to
be
fed -

Now we freeze
from the inside out
on summer nights
on icy beds.

Draped in Lace
and Black Satin
I come to meet You again

Quiet as Night
Sure as morning
This time I’ll stay until the end…
– Jen

[Cloudless]

Cloudless
and
Calm
in
Sky
and
in
Mind

I could summon You
with my thoughts
like Once Upon A Time.
– Jen

But in this jungle you can’t run, ‘Cause what I got for you, I promise it’s a killer, You’ll be banging on my chest Bang bang, Gorilla – Bruno Mars

You were a favourite sweater
Warm and close as my skin
Before unraveling
Turning into shreds -

No semblance now
of the sweater
I once so loved
and could not
bear to shed.

[Rant!]

She will never just hit like
Oh no
That would be too easy!
She will always relate
Bypass your pain
Take your story and make it hers!
She’s (just) been there
and done (just) that!
Matters not the rarity
or severity
UGH
Every freaken time!
(And perhaps she was also
contemplating a post
like this one…
In that case,
ya I’m talking about you!)

Parked by the tens
alongside the bay
They seek love
in cramped confines
And I’m so out-of-place here
the only one ‘Down To Fish’
because that was the bait
but when you ask me to go fishing
you better have the tackle
and what not
because this homie don’t get caught
into hooks like that!
– Jen

True stories remain true… LOL.

bluehue

Matters not
where you’ve studied
or what
I want to know
that you can read
my mind
my eyes
and answer questions
before they’re posed
I need to know
that you’re in touch
with your Soul
In tune
with your feelings
That you can
steady my nerves
with the calmness
of your breathing
That you can turn sound
into silence
and vice-versa
Because
when the Sea churns
and the winds
turn violent
That
is how you’ll
hold on to me.
– Jen

[It's what ya do!]

You connect the dots
from your Heart to Mine
You fill in the blanks spaces
in My Mind
You colour My days
when it’s all greys
You bring Me to Now
and hold Me in place.
– Jen

[Mmm, tell me more! LOL]

There is substance
in 2am text messages -
Not just alcohol
but
giddying
sobering
truth.

[About last night]

I pushed you so hard
I fell off the Earth with you -

Landing
somewhere
all
by
myself.

Persistent rainfall
tapping against the skylight
bringing your messages
I listen attentively
to your remorse code -
Missing
you
and
wishing
you
back.

[Rest in Peace Children!]

splash of colour

Today, you murdered their love story
Quicker than the beat of their hearts
you snatched Hope and Possibility
Twinkling dreams in their eyes
gone with the Glory
Today, their Souls crossed the border
into Divine Sanctuary -
Forever freed from Earth
and the evils that be.

[Get Up]

‘Get up and walk away
Tell me you’re okay
Get up and scream
Pretend it’s only a bad dream
Get up from under the weight
Of this cruel fate
Get up and counteract
Don’t let Life win this attack.’

[The Silence Of A Heartbreak]

whitewashed


‘When it hurts just to close my eyes
I know I’ve cried too much
When My fingers feel so lifeless
And numb to even touch
I know that pain has weakened me
And tried to bring me down
I go in circles in my mind
When I find you’re not around
The silence of a heartbreak
Seem so deafening to hear
My breaths are short and painful
And so I gasp for air
All that’s left is a frame of me
In which I once existed
Gone with you are my Heart and Soul
My being you took and exited…’
– Jen

(This was written in 03 I’d say. It’s never been posted before. I’m not really a huge fan of my writing, but this gets a 10/10 from me! Lol.
Oh ya, sixth day of rain so I’m loving it!!!)

[The Ugly Side of Man]

Time is ticking
Never skipping a beat
I fall behind
With weary feet

Crimson skies
In the midnight hour
No visible escape
From man-made power

Up at dawn
Exhausting my brain
Looking for ways
To ease the pain

War wages on
Another day sets in
A new day to wonder
What is their sin???
– Jen

You are there
in the quiet corners
of my darkness
Whispering to Believe
Flashing glimpses of Truth
Telling me to Trust -
You are there
urging me onward
through the night.

[Requiem]

‘Most vulnerable at Night
the Moon seeks me out
Playing upon my emotions
Preying upon my Soul
Until I fall asleep
humming the tune
of a Requiem
I have never ever heard.’

‘Oh, ain’t nobody calling. Ain’t nobody home. What a lovely day to be lonely! – Broken Bells

‘Girl, take a seat
Rest your weary bones
Your secret’s safe
In my hands

Tell me about the years and
Let me buy an hour
Maybe help me to understand

Oh, ain’t nobody calling
Ain’t nobody home
What a lovely day to be lonely

You’re holding on for life
Holding on for life, love
Holding on for love

You’re holding on for life
Holding on for life, love
Holding on for love

Light another cigarette
Burning in the cold
Waiting on the street
For your man

You’re trying not to look so
Young and miserable
You gotta get your kicks
While you can

And in the Latin quarter
Sitting on your own
What a lovely day to be lonely

You’re holding on for life
Holding on for life, love
Holding on for love

You’re holding on for life
Holding on for life, love
Holding on for love

Well,
you
might belong
to another time
Still you have to carry on, yeah

No
where
else to go
and you never know
what to hide and what to show, no

You’re holding on for life
Holding on for life, love
Holding on for love

You’re holding on for life
Holding on for life, love
Holding on for love.’-

july12thfullmoon
Rain falls down
as I pull up your file
Closing my eyes
You are here for a while
Driving with Me
down the road in-between
The sweetest ride
on which I’d ever been
Closing the drawer
I manage a smile
Knowing the case is wide open -
That the trail runs hot and wild.
– Jen

[Rain and Full Moon? Yup, my mood is erratic!]

Standing in place
I look back
with steel gaze.

I do not fear
turning into salt
My only fear,
not seeing your face!

Coffee runs cold
like the blood in my veins
Seeing you there
feeling nothing remains
I walk on by
to the place in my dreams
Without you, but altogether
I’m alright…it seems…

Everything changed

when you were coming my way

I heard the sweetest tune

from miles away

Now that you’re gone

backwards it plays

Making no sense

like US in many ways…
