For today’s blog I have decided to make a return to Lion Hearts and another poem for the coming tour.
Rapture is a bitter sweet story of sensuality that finds its raison d’être from the Lion Hearts essay Departure.
For those unfamiliar with Lion Hearts, I will quickly fill in some gaps. We have two lovers, parted by war and distanced by miles, they battle winter with lonely hearts and by spring are reunited.
... how often have yeez had these kinda moments?... when ye say something droll, or meant to be dripping in sarcastic acid?... and it goes winging straight over the head of yer target?... their mind/brain/substitute-for-thinking-material just misses the point completely?... a lot, huh? ... I had a cracker today, and I realise, that yes, Mabel, I REALLY , REALLY have to get out more...
How sweetly the light doth shine, as summer warms from winter’s rhyme! This week we have another poem, an update on the tour and for the first time ever, an extract from my book!
The Lion Hearts tour is a week closer and an opening date in Lambeth has now been confirmed. The gig will kick the tour off on October 31st and is currently the only London date planned.
There comes a moment in every man's life where he will lay eyes on a beautiful woman and his heart will sink and his head will drop. He knows he has fallen in love instantly and in that same bittersweet flicker of time he knows she will be the breaking of him.
She sat in front of him, radiating with the glow of a woman who had ruined countless men before him and had loved deeply every single one of them.

I have always loved history, especially war history, and on this date in 1941, the British Navy sunk the German battleship Bismarck in the North Atlantic near France.
The Bismarck was launched at Hamburg, Germany, on February 14, 1939. At 823 feet long, Adolf Hitler believed that the start-of-the-art battleship would mark the rebirth of the German Navy. The British Navy heavily patrolled ocean routes from Germany to the Atlantic Ocean, though, and only German submarines were able to move freely in the Atlantic Ocean.

I lay broken at your altar
seeking solace in the night
one precious moment
to feel everything and nothing
Wrap me in the colour of white
baptize me in the flame of truth
cleanse my heart of this wanting
free my soul from this need
I am bound to you
your lips,they quench my thirst
your touch,it quiets my hunger
your love,it strengthens me
Faire le yeux doux le amour
this dutiful servant
I kneel before you
faithful and exposed
Moonlight ripples over the water
Wind dances through your hair
Whispered promises in the dark
I look away from you in love
The sound of your breath
beside me in the dark
The feel of your skin
You drape your arm across my breast
Fingers tangled in my hair
thumb caressing my cheek
You, sleeping at my side
What dreams quietly dance upon your heart?
Out the window
fireflies journey through the night
quivers of light in beat with your heart
cicadas sing a lullaby
My life before this?
Nothing. Empty hours,incomplete
doubting,wanting yet fearful
I give to you
the blood in my veins
the breath in my lungs
the life in my body
I will gently fold you into my heart.
On a starry night you will see many stars and depending on where you are and what time it is some stars may appear to be shining brighter than others.
Talented people are everywhere and you are one of them. You may be unaware of how bright your light is shining. We all need to find and utilize our inborn talent to its fullest potential.
