WORST ENEMY

Been me
Against me

Battleground:
Deep within where
Dreams are born
But die
When faith
And hope are lost

Beaten down but
Still rising to kneel before
The Father

Hope shines forth
Help is assured
There’s no backing down now

FLUID

Savour me like a massage.
Hot, cold, or even tepid –
I am fluid;
I’ll suit your very need.

Guide me like a shower spray
Soothingly pelting your body.
I am fluid;
I’ll heal your tired muscles.

Enjoy every deft touch
Like a steamy shower.
I am fluid;
I’ll loosen your chronic knots.

Soak up the soothingness,
Like of a scented hot tub
(I am fluid),
To calm your frantic thoughts.

Trust each delicate touch
Kneading your calves and thighs.
I am fluid –
Taming all your stressed sinews.

Absorb every knowing blow
Drumming your torso and back.
I am fluid –
Hypnotising you with rhythm and sound.
