Comfort

samuelpye  
I held the reins firm, 
as thunder rumbled through the mountain surround,
my horse reared with trepidation, 
echoing my thoughts and sentiments, 
with her reassuring might I pressed on,
with the bitter cold I felt the warmth of my jacket and balaclava,
one with my warm bloody beast,

Understanding

samuelpye  
With this,
I gave it everything,
with you,
I gave it all,
with this,
current technology,
energy transfer,
fresh vigour,
humble valour,
sea salt kisses,
sun kissed lush meadows,
soft deciduous,
prickly evergreen,
wisdom from the mountains,
compassion from sea,

Weevils

samuelpye  
Ascertain,
figures of strength,
companion,
the voyage,
vessel,
recourse,
stood before her bows,
crashing waves crush my doubts,
swell,
defining course,
reverberations of a pacifist,
weevils in the biscuits,
soldier and sailor, 
share another damp cigarette,

That and this

samuelpye  
Cool evening air brings promise of a new tomorrow,
soothing, 
softening hard tension,
like a stiff drink,
time to think,
subtle shadows,
paranoia fades as fear becomes the norm,
taking hold of myself,
I grapple with my worst,
the habits that ruin me,
melancholy that stifles my obligations,
the desire to overcome,
to improve, to run again, to be strong, 
reliable and there for you is here,

Sleep

samuelpye  
Your dreams,
your deep dark demanding sleep,
drenched in romance,
I forget everything else, 
I forget everything,
carrying with me, 
toxic intoxication, 
wrapped around the same imagination,
the same truth, 
the same tree,
the moon and it's solid place,
branching out into the sky, 
Earth and its surroundings,
clouds pass gently by,

Armour

samuelpye  
Summer in France, 
armour piercing,
 stated with chance,
 heart felt emotion,
 trouble that chimes,
 like a rocking old dog,
 felt tip pens,
 trouble again,
 foreign ambassadors,
 to the student teachers,
 form beleaguered,
 I don't want to chance it,
 fasten me firmly,
 so I can fly high,
smile soft winds,
I love the breeze, 
French, 
France, 
soft firm fight, 
give my partner,
my completion,
my armoury, 
stand behind my shield,

Free From

samuelpye  
She finds me,
between the leaves,
studying the coffee,
facing the future,
hugging the past,
blessed for good comfort,
thankful for support,
sleeping outdoors,
at ease with the peace you bring,

Sera

samuelpye  
Rivers that thunder through canyons,
some bantering,
some chartered,
some held on,
some belonged to those with good course,
the uttering of which were remarked by the sense of belonging,
guess without fear of that which is not known,
devoured by wicked strikes of the darkest miserable and the most harmful hurt, 
capture that which you need to wrap around like a freedom flag, 
upbeat, in the know, 
the loop of heightened tension,

Blush

samuelpye  
Love, heartfelt flexible truths,
well practised,
updates, code, and version too, 
thankful all the while,
protecting the freedom to gather my thoughts,
shame moves us forward,
collective acknowledgement of weakness,
sound communal strength,

Metrics

samuelpye  
Rampant,
with an attitude to match,
spark,
smile and laughter,
heartless sin,
carefree,
strong control,
steady hand,
a creaking ocean liner,
lost at sea,
counting the days,
measured in swell,
fraught with uncertainty,
your opinion counts,
though metrics may differ,
survive for this,
our love,
