Recently, I had this lovely opportunity to work with my dear friend, Lauren of Lauren M. Hancock Poetry and Prose, to write & record a piece together. Lauren is a poet, painter, violinist and above all, a wonderful, sweet & kind being. Please visit her blog, where you’ll find her heartfelt, soulful, raw poetry, prose & spoken word and her beautiful artwork. My gratitude to Lauren for reaching out to me, to make this happen.
The breaths I take The steps I sway When I dance on my feet My ground is change
The heights I stare The case is space The light has shades The dark isn’t just pain
I see the sane When I saw the chain I tear the deep When I drop the waves
The colours I blend The Universe I paint The eyes then glare The divine through pen
I expand upon an inner sense of personal justice social soul well meant
I know I know the ability for personal growth
is well rooted deep within, for every passing second my efforts are tirelessly sown,
my chest expands my heart, it flows rich with breath, mighty effort stallion-like strength – continuous insistence, and sound temperament.
our steps in time pirouetting groundwork yours and mine
our knowledge together brought closely in life we stare down the precipice and soar, divine,
unknowingly yet aware we become entwined intent and more this World we explore
for reaching our Universe’s heights sights and sounds enriching our abilities our minds implore.
Violin track & artwork by Lauren and video & sound editing by myself.

Naked & Rough Skin
Please don’t breathe on me with ease Coz I’m gonna freeze your breeze with my heat
You seem to see me as if I’m a treat But I’m here to trick your deeds with chills of my screams….
The heart is eyeing my phase while I am crying The air in my body is heavy the way I am sighing The mind of mine is red diamond when I am mining
The fire is burning my track that I trace on thin icing The demons are scratching my face while they’re dancing My feet are loosing the balance, so I’m simply sliding
Time is chasing the zones that once were hiding The walls of this form are cracking & now they’re falling I’m unchaining my case that was suppressing the deeper calling
My voice is whispering to burning stars as they keep shining The soul is grounding my whole in soil as if I am dying This all is enlightening the core, it’s so exciting
After Reliving, I took a time off from WP….and now I’m coming back slowly….I’ve certainly missed you & your lovely writings / art….I will try to catch up but if I can’t, then a new day & a new beginning. Here’s my new poem / spoken word – Eyeing my Phase.
