Tenderness

Tenderness

Delicateness makes tenderness more vulnerable. Not all can understand, that tenderness has more than one side: depth of empathy for others makes you yourself more vulnerable and may lead you the more easily to pains than others of less sensitivity. The consequence is that these tender wounded martyrs by too many beatings get their surface rough that fools the eye concealing badly covered wounds that still hurt constantly in depth. The deeper sensitivity and tenderness, ...

Attempt at some self-definition

Attempt at some self-definition

Drifting lonely as a cloud of no more stuff than dreams are made of is the dream of my existence, floating aimlessly on seas of turbulence with no more meaning than a passing night of dreams and of no more than that. My life and person is a dream that passes on to change into some other dream perhaps of no more validity than any dream of great stuff writ in water to immediately be ...

Stealth

Stealth

Let me enter you but without tears and pains, to have a peep around your mind, investigating feelings and vibrations just to get to know you to sort out and harmonize our music and discover other universes than our own with no hard feelings and no stealth at all, but just the contrary: enrichment, to find out how it all came about that we two found a common tone that keeps resounding in our hearts ...

That's me

That’s me

Can I ever forget Those who forgot Can I ever forgive Those who can't, Can I ever think more Of those who think less, Can I ever share  With those who don't Can I love those That fail to love, I can of course, why? Because I care ...

A naked flame that lights the virginal flesh

A naked flame that lights the virginal flesh

The love that should be loved, By lovers who can love, Love is tireless for some, Love lies in our hearts, Sometimes void of love entwined, Not for the lack of desire, Minds willing with bodies not, Impulse with one, rejected by another, Focussed on fulfillment, Abandoned by defect, Not by default.  Love shouldn't be conditional, Far from the truth,  The norm is not always the norm. Life has to give before it can take ...

The Lane Between Two Roads

The Lane Between Two Roads

A favourite later poem, being an honest descriptive writing from the experience of actually being there and remembering the different impressions awoken, including from local news items at the time. Pic.: is of Cox's Walk   Walking Cox’s Walk, Dulwich, in 2009, enduring haunt from childhood, largely untouched since the last steam locomotive thundered through in 1954. Sadly, as for all who grew up in suburban London during the post-war years, with radical changes since ...
