Tattoo

I’ve tattooed you on my heart

And I’ll always have you with me The mark you left The marks you leave each time Magnetic ink of blood Drawn to itself Living within you


I’d like to say I know for sure It would give you the impression of confidence and aspiration I could up and fly away I suppose England would be an incredible opportunity To study and to travel Behold history wherever I went But I’d see your face in every new acquaintance And my dreams would turn to nothing in my hand

(I’m glad I did)

A cathedral Captured in the evening skies As the sun sinks down Casting its rays Sideways Through images Yellow Red Green Glass menageries Lighthouses in the brick walls The square archways Cover and shield Saints Sinners The grey corners Filled with the silent Ghosts Of captives Slaves of the stones Surrounding their souls There A candle burns for one All Those who seek The close vastness Freedom Found within this fortress Worship and pray Weep and smile Share and shed what you may Confess and be cleansed Peace and grace They wait for you here Between the pillars In every shadow Caught somewhere in the cobwebs The fragile dust Whose fingers have graced The wood and stone

Sanctuary

Words lift off the page Flow through the open wells Into the mind Soaked up by my spongy brain Stored away in the unknown crevices

Pulled out in unconsciousness Processed, sorted All meaning and life-giving essence Sucked from the corpse Digested to nourish the soul Giving a pulse to my veins
