when solitude knocked

a letter sent ;

left unopened and thrown away.

a cold snowy wind once blew

and now disappears when solitude knocked.

 find all that is free;

dig deep –

a thought left incomplete.

in the rain

the raindrops fell and found

all to that was bittersweet

a letter sent ;

left unopened and thrown away.

a cold snowy wind once blew

and now disappears when solitude knocked.

i’m on fire

i’m on fire

and i’m tired of talking about it

tight as entwined fingers,

we once were.

the perfume drifts in the secret

and perhaps a distant thought pricks.

i lived within the definition of the game.

and i’m on fire;

i’m tired of talking about it.

her hair, soft and elegant

i fell in love once

and that was the only time.

to trust and to be burned,

it was all a lesson learned.

find me, soft rains in lonesome days

the woman once i knew disappeared

and left me in the season of wanting

the woman once i knew disappeared

where did she go?

i do not know

i fell in love once

and that was the only time.

her hair entwined between my fingers

her warn summer skin once melted with mine

now freezes in an iced moment cubed

i would have taken her empire.

i’m on fire

and i’m tired of talking about it.

tight as entwined fingers,

we once were.

the perfume drifts in the secret

and perhaps a distant thought pricks.

i lived within the definition of the game.

and i’m now on fire.

a favoured waltz

in the upstairs window,

the waltz glided across the floor.

in the candlelight flickering,

someone sets themselves free.

the scab of what had been torn off

and the memories just bled out

locked inside of a prison of self reflection,

in the upstairs window,

the favoured waltz glides across the floor.
