They arrived made like electric

Their touches proved to be eccentric

But scored him a hat trick

In a game whose thread I held to trick

Flowers and words


Like unseen snakes

They evaporated in my pores

Like powerful rakes

They gathered love to be stored

Like powerful waves they whispered

Sending shivers with cages for imprisonment

Like the fingers of Christ

They opened my eyes to the cool

Flowers and words


Flowers and words

Those cheap but potent poison

Seek to graze my stubborn grass

Which machetes and mowers failed to tamper

Never say never is a statement of surrender

Failing me miserably in the game of love
