Whispering Voices…

Walking through the city…
Reinventing who I am…

The perfect opportunity…
To become a different man…

Wandering through shadows…
Where no one even cares…

Just who or what I am…
They are totally unaware…

Of all the sins I carry…
The heavy cross I bear…

As nobody ever notices…
Nor hears the whispered prayer…

It’s a place of total freedom…
For the weird, the wise and wrong…

Not a place of judgement…
But a place where I belong…

A sense of shamed community…
For all sinners and their ghosts…

Who walk through life’s falling rain…
But never follow the signposts…

Always choosing the wrong path…
And straying off into the dark…

But the city will never criticise…
Or make any cold sly remark…

It embraces all your darkness…
And covers up all your sin…

It’s a supernatural place…
Where life’s losers sometimes win…

Where rules are meant for breaking…
Not worrying about tomorrow…

Even lending you an invisible spell…
For anyone who wants to borrow…

So I’m walking through the city…
And reinventing who I am…

Looking out for opportunities…
To become a different man…

The Words…

15036

Is it fair to be…
In love with her…
When she doesn’t care…
Or even notice me…
To carry so much…
When she gives so little…
Always staring through me…
Her touch forever eluding me…
So I suffer in silence…
In anguish and pain…
And watch her face twist at…
The mention of my name…
Blessed with such beauty…
Grace, which I admire quietly…
Hiding my beastly face…
Wishing I could be braver…
Should I chase her affections…
Profess my love out loud…
Would she fall utterly spellbound…
From her untouchable cloud…
And into my protecting arms…
For everyone around to see…
That the one out of reach…
Would even so much as…
More than just look through me…
If she felt all this pain…
And saw through my eyes…
Just how much I feel for her…
She’d react with shock and surprise…
Unrequited, I know it’s unwanted…
I know that this is wrong…
And my heart wasn’t invited…
Yet this is so fucking unfair…
She will never be mine…
I’ll never fully taste those lips…
Under the sinner’s moonlight…
Or dance with her past midnight…
Or take to places she’s never seen…
Her on my arm, like a fairy-tale Queen…
So much better kept to myself…
Try not to let her, or anyone else…
In on my secret, that’s locked away…
Until the time feels right and I can say…
Aloud, or whisper these words in her ear…
Without fear of being damned…
Or being dismissed out of hand…
Is it really fair to be…
In love with her, totally…
When she doesn’t care…
Or even notice me…

The Transformation…

EKtgazFcaq0

His words were always…
Lost in translation…

She would smile sweetly…
But it was no consolation…

She understood little…
Much to his frustration…

But when their eyes met…
He felt the transformation…

As a lightning bolt hit…
That defied all explanation…

Like star crossed lovers…
From different constellations…

A fantasy come true…
The feeling of pure exhilaration…

From the very first moment…
And very first flirtation…

Where innocence was lost…
When under interrogation…

Driven by Lust’s power…
And the thrill of temptation…

Which blinded their morals…
And erased their education…

Pure souls slowly becoming…
Solied with sinful contamination…

Walking down the path…
Towards eternal damnation…

And corrupted minds…
Shared unspoken conversation…

As he stood trembling beside her…
She felt his vibration…

When touching each other…
Lost in such infatuation…

But when it was all over…
Came a wave of aggravation…

As the spite and anger grew…
So did each painful accusation…

But time wandered on…
And in space for contemplation…

Blinded eyes were prised open…
Like a religious revelation…

His words are now always…
Filled with guarded hesitation…

As she looks right through him…
Freed from the chains of expectation…

Mermaids…

Holding on to that moment…
Where everything was so calm…

Floating on the ocean breeze…
Far away from any harm…

Chasing double rainbows…
And searching for Mermaids…

Hoping they drag him under…
Seducing him under the waves…

Where demons cannot find him…
And his tormentors have no power…

Where dark spells are impotent…
Even in the midnight hour…

And his soul can be healed…
Given some time and space…

To be able to forgive himself…
Instead of languishing in disgrace…

At all the thoughts and deeds…
That weigh heavy on his mind…

From the insanity of distraction…
To words spoken, so very unkind…

Removing all the dark images…
That constantly flood his head…

And just for one single moment…
Be able to forgive and to forget…

But Mermaids cannot save him…
The Mermaids don’t fucking exist…

They don’t appear in reality…
Unlike the painful scar on his wrist…

As the power of his demons…
Are too much to overcome…

When even in that calm moment…
He fears that the Devil has won…

As it’s too late to find redemption…
And too late to turn back now…

Because even if he wanted to…
He simply wouldn’t know how…

But sealed inside that moment…
It’s so peaceful and so calm…

Where reality is so far away…
And he’s protected from any harm…

She looked at him…
With eyes of love…

Her guardian angel…
Sent from above…

Who nursed her through…
The toughest of times…

And stood by her…
Forgave all her crimes…

That gentle man…
A rock to depend…

When she was broken…
He refused to bend…

And comforted her…
Allowed her the space…

Accepted all her faults…
Wiped tears from her face…

Gave her the courage…
To carry on with life…

He took all the weight…
Absorbed all her strife…

Made life worth living…
And lit up the dark…

As in her desperate hours…
He provided the spark…

That she clung onto…
Allowed her to cope…

It gave her strength…
And provided her hope…

That she wasn’t here…
All on her own…

And she could fight…
Show some backbone…

Knowing he’d be there…
So silent and strong…

No matter the issue…
Or if she was wrong…

Never pointing out faults…
Just seeing her through…

And she never suspected…
She really didn’t have a clue…

“A kiss holds a million deceits”…

No one quite gets her…
No one really understands…

Just a little lost lady…
Reaching out her hands…

Looking for something…
And someone to hold…

No payback for her bravery…
No reward for being bold…

She wants to be loved…
But they only see her past…

The scars and the damage…
Too much history amassed…

As time and time again…
They’ve treated her like dirt…

She’s chosen the men…
They’ve repaid her with hurt…

Not seeing the love…
She could offer to them…

And one by one…
They’ve slowly condemned…

This beautiful creature…
To a life in the shadows…

Fighting a darkness…
That only she knows…

And now she sits quietly…
Waiting for the phone…

Fighting ghosts of her past…
And fighting them alone…

Desperate for someone…
To give her a sign…

To gently whisper to her…
That it’ll all work out fine…

And her prince will come…
Upon his white steed…

Sweep her off her feet…
At heart racing speed…

But until that moment…
She stares out of the window…

Trying to numb the pain…
Whilst her life’s stuck in limbo…
