Dance of a Thousand Kings

Dance of a Thousand Kings
By AJ O’Brien.
For my wife, Pauline.

If I could I would catch a dream
a dream filled with love
and wonderful things.
Holding it locked within my heart
until a time when we were apart.

Then this dream of our love
would rise from within my soul
and together we would dance
as an angel sings,
the dance of a Thousand Kings.


The enemy on X street


Soft the pillow
but heavy
so so heavy.
Like a mountain heavy.

She, the law breaker
must be strong,
for hope has danced here
far too long.

Pushing, holding down
fighting a losing fight.
She needs absolution,
not tears
to put things right.
