When you’re gone..

When you’re gone

Sacred forest, Meghalaya

In the game of love, I’m your pawn.
But I won’t cry when you’re gone.

In the saddening darkness, you’re my dawn.
But I won’t cry when you’re gone.

In the midst of lust, you’re my porn.
But I won’t cry when you’re gone.

The seas and the sun,
The laughter and the fun,
The brief moments of desire,
The dreams that spark a fire.

Of times I will cherish,
In my memory, you won’t perish.
My heart will ache for love, lost and lorn.

But darling,
I won’t cry when you’re gone.

You Say You Love Me

You say you love me but you keep asking me to change things about myself. What is it that you love about me if every time we talk there is…

Plastic Unfantastic

POETRY

The currents and Swells in the Andaman Sea Bring Excess Plastic to the Beaches of Ko Lanta.

Photo. James. G. Brennan.

The overbearing plastic reality
Laid out before me
Like some horror movie filling my
Heart with dread.

Permeating the beauty on this beach
With an ugly heartless soul,

This soul of human development
For a greedy corporate dream.

No end in sight to stop this blight,
Our oceans choke they scream.

The currents have been bringing up an unusual amount of plastic from Malasia and Indonesia to Thailands coastal region. Thailand is also very guilty of plastic waste in the seas of course.

Thank you for reading. J.

O Perfect Love Despairing

O Imperfect Love Despairing

A POEM

O IMPERFECT LOVE DESPAIRING

LOVE !!!. I was told you were a beautiful thing
Butterflies, sunflowers and blue skies
Endless, fruitful and full
Rapid heartbeats, kisses and passionate nights

But alas, tis but a lie
You are a deceitful wretch come to steal the joy of youthful love and flee
To set the heart and flesh on fire without reprieve
Then cast down and stomp on it with glee

A thief — That is what you are
Your trail of broken, hardened hearts trails behind you
An almost numberless numb throng
An army of despaired souls cursing the day they crossed your path

But alas you wicked soul continue on your conquering quest
The next doe-eyed lass and puberty stricken lad
You scheme and plan till your deed is done
Then wring your hands in an evil triumphant laugh

Oh!! Love !! Had I known, I would never have opened my heart to you
You set on fire then remove the coals
You fan the embers then withdraw the life flame
You work the furnace then close the shop

You look on as winter sets in
The cold ice hardens the heart
Devoid of warmth, it’s beat slows down
A numbing pulse all that is left
Why Love? Why do you cherish the anguish of suffering souls?
Love-lost children, you leave us alone
Alas, you didn’t tell us that the power to sustain was beyond us
A power so great it demands us

We strive and strive and fall and fail
O!! hearts of men — is this suffering quest worth our blood and sweat?
Should we not accept defeat and reclaim our lot?

And declare that love has won
Love — the mighty one has won again

Broken

I tried to protect it.
Still.
I ended up,
with a broken heart.
How do you mend this?
Before falling apart.
