Sunset in Zadar
Something Old and Something Red

sea, heat to the sun, and
love to the moon; they
told me, this isn't enough
i offered my soul to
the devil; he said yes,
this will be just fine
The Girl He LovesThe girl he loves is midnight, like the blue of the sea cradled by the moonlight.More Like This
The girl he loves is verdant, the very green of the hill kissed by the summer delight.
The girl he loves is coral, as pink as the roses that grow in his mother's garden.
The girl he loves is crimson, red like the autumn leaves that lay abandoned.
The girl he loves I can never be
Because he's allergic to violets,
And violets are too much like me.
She Dances With FireShe dances with fire, a dragon in tow.More Like This
Twirling with flames; graceful and slow
She dances tonight, in a city of ash.
Her feet leaving footprints, where the sand will splash.
Quietly mourning, as time goes by;
Where once she beheld a home in her eyes...
Yet naught but the barest of bones remain,
And so she dances, to soothe the pain.
Camden TownCamden Town is a joyous riot.More Like This
Girls with studded boots and spiked hair. Men standing by racks of colourful plastic and cloth. The fact the merchandise is fake doesn't make it any less splendid. By the station, a man waits in a Spiderman outfit with a plastic police helmet tucked under his arm. He watches a black guy with a bouncy walk go past, proclaiming god's love to anyone who wants to listen.
I turn off the main road and take shelter in more contemplative streets. Regent's Canal smells of still water as I cross it. Six canal boats doze side by side, like lions on the Savannah. Opposite slumbers a three story monster - scarlet paint and decked out in Chinese lanterns. It's a restaurant in disguise.
I enter Regent's Park and sit down on a bench with a lip gloss stuck in the seat. I have a Sainsburys sandwich, still chilled from the cooler cabinet. A man with a heavy coat and a glorious black beard picks up cigarette butts, checking if there's any life left in them. A jogger goes past
* I LOVE YOU FOR WHAT YOU ARE *I love you for all the boys I never knewMore Like This
I love you for all the times I spent with you
For the smell of the sea and warm bread
For the flowers that you put near my bed
For the pure animal that lies within a dove
I love you for all the boys I do not love
Without you I can only see the wide world
The mirror cannot produce the image that was destroyed
The moment between what was and is today
And by forgetting the road I was well on my way
But the hole in the wall did not reveal a lot
So I had to learn about life by the pieces I got
I love you for your wisdom that is not mine
I love you eventhough people consider this a crime
I love you though I know it is all illusion
But my heart is beating in restless confusion
You think you are doubt, but you are reason
You are the sun that will be present every season <>
