River of Time. 

Somewhere in my mind

I’m an old man, 

Lost

In the roots

That twirl & vine

Over speeding thoughts

& lightning nerves. 

And where memories flood

My eyes

I let the waves

Wash over my daydreams, 

Recurring on my shores

Like they were never meant

To leave me dry. 

Somewhere in my mind

I am an old man, 

And though youth

Rubs on my face

You can still notice the

Droplets

Where the river of time

Raced over.

Speechless. 

She had a way

With her

Tongue, 

Carrying thousands

Of words

Around the places

Sugar tasted sweet. 

& though

She won’t confess it

She knows

Her strengths, 

Using it to speak through 

Doors

That open for

No man. 

She has a way

With her

Tongue. 

And I loved it most, 

When it silenced the world 

Around me

Without having

A single word 

Leave the edges of

Her lips, 

But taking them from 

The poetry 

Hung

On my own. 

Moon Blessed. 

She was

A soul

Bred by so much

Shadow

She thought

The night

Was where she belonged. 

But everyone else

Saw how

The sun

Shone on her, 

& even despite it being

A star

It still gave her

His light

As if

It wasn’t his

To begin with. 

She was

A soul

Bred by so much 

Shadow. 

But she learned

How to be

Light 

Without having 

To become 

Fire. 

Music. 

You’re my favourite music. & everytime I hear the tune of your name rolling of someone else’s tongue It’d pick my mind off of reality…. 

& wrap strings around my thoughts… 

& shake enough to make me dance. 

You’re my favourite music. And my soul has tuned 

The lyric 

To my

Heartbeat. 

Gravity. 


Come closer. 

Let us be stars

& allow

The gravity 

Between 

To consume us. 

And where we will collide

I’ll put my hands out

To embrace

The force

Of your body 

On mine, 

& lace these fingers

Around you

So that

We never

Have to shoot through

Space

Alone again.
