“Silent Applause” by Slings & Arrows

This is my journey end
a start to finish my wish
a place where solitary is my carnival
a taste of purpose
all said is done
between the two
who rest on trust
to be still with ground uncommon to most
applause gift the few
silenced in beauty
I am your crowd
in single number
you
throw me to the lions
of self believe
what am I to do
with my silent applause

“Secrets & Forevers” by Slings & Arrows

A kiss to you my sweet
taste me your finest
dance my tongue on your appetite
you hold me in blue
against your heart of petal
song my bird in tune
in bloom I breathe so full of you

I hear you play with elegance
a women’s touch is my executioner
brave my heart to taste your mood
your temper will flame my will

This is my only hope
to brush against you
in secrets and forevers

“All Mine” by Slings & Arrows

 

 

It is the strength in me that lets me stand in front of you
not my money or my looks
though it helps to be rough around the edges
this I have learned from you
my mind counts your heartbeats
paints them into a picture
crafts them into a dream
I love waiting for you
you leave a hamper at my door
it’s wicker weave squeaks with hidden treats
one by one I build my smile
yes I do smile these days
not my favourite hobby
the invisible weight I carried was all mine
it’s pockets filled with trouble
fingered to a high polish
but now I smile when your wicker hamper
arrives for me
