Droplets

Slow descending salted tear I did not ask you to be here
nor circumstance which does appear for which you to my face adhere

I’m no longer quite the man no will possess to what I can
my destiny got up and ran and hollowed out a life to span

so much of all in floods I miss a hand in hand a unique kiss
a portent of impending bliss that all the negatives dismiss

when many times our smiling broad the closeness hours did oft afford
where virtue indeed its own reward has now been swiftly put to sword

for now the colours still have their name but vibrancy is not the same
I have not the chance even to claim that any other might be to blame

perhaps when passed this veil of dark a life (of sorts) one might embark
no more for sounds of her to hark nor time to run upon her mark

will pictures have much less a wrench whilst muddied thoughts might lose their stench
and elegance so chic and French may not be solely her entrench

I need not telling of where to start though others try it to impart
be still therefore my beaten heart as rent it is and torn apart

Remembrances Day

One year to the day I dared to dream
a Cheshire cat who got the cream
cross seas and thru where once was home
to Harbour Bridge and Opera dome

the day that passed will e’er reman
with vision of you just the same
the gentle touch surround my face
with glowing brush of softest grace

I pine for times between us close
and fight the demons most morose
to seek to look, perhaps to find
the happiness I left behind

for you the cause of so much joy
enlightened as you did this boy
who never felt now such the loss
where life reveals now sanded gloss

I pray you well my sweetheart fair
as I sit here and you lay there
in other life I hope to find
better circumstances us will bind

for now I can but weep, lament
whimper dark and malcontent
the world holds no more which to smile
the streets and screens no more beguile

without the dawn to hear your voice
an endless slumber would be choice
yet wake I do, albeit late
to drowsy frown and cursing fate

for in all I see and all I do
the constant essence hints of you
the anchors and routines I know
the signing off of love, Coco

The Worst Sorrow

Do you regret what you have lost when it’s you who seemed to throw away?
do you presume it might be there should you miss it another day?
do you worry for the pining and the disembowelment of regret?
do you crave some quick oblivion to help you to forget?

Was I wrong to let her go, I could not bear to see her sad?
was I wrong to think in time that I would for certain drive her mad?
was I wrong in thinking truly that my love must set her free?
was I wrong to think it best that she should no longer count on me?

Can I live with what I’ve done and will I ever feel again?
can I make it through the longing and the ever-biting yen
can I reconcile the weeping that it never came to pass?
can I console myself in knowing that she deserved a better class?

I can but hope in all the turmoil that she of all might find her peace
I can but hope that rid of me the negatives for her will cease
I can but hope the pain I’ve caused her returns to me where it belongs
I can but hope before my death I might atone for all those wrongs.
