Smothering

Such interference; such control
It drives her round the bend
No trust; no sense of letting go
No hope of being friends
Just suffocation; in her face
Taking autonomy
Asphyxiating any breath
Where is her liberty?

A prisoner to another’s heart
A slave to their command
A hostage to their temperament
And serf in life remand
Where freedom is a distant shore
A flight from here to there
Where only dreams see sun chink through
This unending nightmare

I Had A Dream

I had a dream about the world
The world all cloaked in fear
Ruled by this overwhelming force
Or so it would appear

But then came a brand new order
That took hold of all the fright
Caressing it with kindness
And bathing it in light

And with compassion’s touch
Doors and ceilings opened wide
To conquer all the bounds of fear
Washed over by the tide

And liberty and freedom
Were released to roam at will
Subduing guns of terror
Scaling up the highest hill

For bullets held no power now
Unable to do harm
As peace reigned in magnificence
Together with a calm

And although fear still existed
The feed was love and honesty
With openness and pureness
Wrapped up in tranquillity

And so fear’s self just vanished
Replaced by universal care
Shining with a luminescence
That was forever there

And in that very dream
The heartbeat of the world restored
Turning from the pulse of violence
To one of acceptance and accord.
