Without Cause

no matter the
offence,

i’ll remain as
mindless..

and keep on
hugging
you,

so, please look
out for me
too,

when flushed
of pink

as the
human tint..

runs screamin’ from
my skin and the
veins in both
temple
s

start
flexing,

and i’ll do my honest
best not to give
you cause..

to look out for the
red lights
that

make these nights
so long for
you.

i love you, no
offence.

Unready Write

These Letters Written by Famous Artists Reveal the Lost Intimacy of Putting  Pen to Paper | At the Smithsonian | Smithsonian Magazine

not ready to write
but i will
tonight,

if not for you,
for fairness
and all
its

futile
promise,

not ready to
bleed,

and still i’ll
spill it all
tonight,

you’ve earned
each word,

as well as any
you’ve not
heard.

SHADOWBOXER | bardofthewoods.com

boxing days
away

bare
knuckled,

i don’t want
trouble

yet find it at
each bend,

if you ever catch
my shadow

arching
over..

best we clash on
civil terms,

life’s a tough love
teacher
and..

we’ve much
to learn.

Through Wires

A Telephone Pole At Sunset Photograph by Pete Ryan

helping someone help
me when i don’t
need the
bother..

grounding storm or
it’ll knock
out..

row of swaying
poles,

or rose,
the signal tower,

my lifeline leads
out to sea..

but i’ll still reach you if
only through
wires.

Truth’s Tight Rope

“be honest..”
cries the
heart,

like it’s always
an easy

option, yes, it’s
the fairer
one.

but in being true to self
risk is run of
hurting

soul i vowed to
love, pet and
protect

but sometimes thorns
are what we
get,

with caring tone
of course,

even though you’re
strong enough
to hear it
harsh

i respect your
right to
know

my truth if
you’ve..

asked, no matter how over,
under or just right
you react.
