Sometimes occasions come our way,
Inspiring memories good and bad.
The occasion that is now close at hand,
Brings me memories of my dad.
The things he taught me have stayed in place,
And have become a map for me to tread.
As he told me about the things in...
Another layer sustained.
Another level to the wall,
To shield me from the pain.
Another hour, another day,
of longing to be free.
Another night inside myself,
Praying for reprieve.
Another heart, another soul,
Reaching out to mine.
Another glimpse of something...
I’m great, fine, spectacular. In a way
I relish every night, and I live every day.
I live, I laugh, I write, I sing,
I wonder what the new days will bring.
Then I get home, and I take off the mask.
The day, an almost impossible task,
Is finally over, and so I lay Down,
who needed lyrics for a track he made. Let me know if you like (if you care), p.s., always available to write more for those that need it, i also do vocals:
“In Darkness Let Me Dwell”
(Deep spoken vocals/:32)
Winter's tendrils, crept across the land,
Another night has come and gone and here I sit all alone
wondering what the hell I did wrong
Trying to pick myself up and carry on
Though it's tough when you have been beaten up by life
Lost your will to fight
Trying not to listen to the voices in your head
Fighting against the...
and be inspired to write. In 2000 I was on a boat in the Greek Islands and one moonlit night I was sitting on the bow of the boat looking and the stars. I thought and wondered if there was someone out there for me. So I wrote this. It seems a little corny now. The photo is...
journey, And I travel my last weary mile, just forget if you can that I ever frowned
just remember only my smiles
forget unkind words I have spoken
remember some good I have done forget that I ever had a heart ache and remember I've had loads of fun
forget that I have...
Have you ever wondered what it would like on the other side
Have you ever had a person
Who could make you drool, but now he makes you cry
Have you ever hoped for a better day
Have you ever hoped that the pain would wash away
When he touched you and you screamed
She lies easy in my arms
This dimly moonlit night
Her body supple to my charms
She moans with such delight
I brush her hair back, find her neck
And kiss her softly there
My lips they trace her gentle curves
They make her arch and swear
While fingers brush and pinch and...
I have let the light go,But not let the dark in,The pain from withing spreading my fears,You and I,Standing here alone,We are like each other,The pain consuming me,This world is nothing but a dream,A peace of a shattered memory,Here we go,The secrets we never shared,Each time we...
in your hair
As we were stood atop the cliff
On our trip to Scarborough fair
I remember your soft brown eyes
How they sparkled as you smiled
We were in love and life was good
We were young and running wild
I remember the soft green field
When we made love in the rain
Each and Every Night
So much do I miss you that
Each and every night as I close my eyes
My heart sees your sparkling eyes, and your smile.
So much do I want you that
Each and every night as I think of you
My heart hears your sweet whispers and your...
I see the window to my soul instead. It's like a broken mirror i can't see through,
as the pieces won't be picked up till you've bled.
And I realised, my eyes, they cut so deep,
for the loneliest reflections never smile.
My shattered entity was all I could keep,
by making every...
From the safety of the womb
To an antiseptic room
As I started on my journey
From the cradle to the tomb
I never thought to wonder why
Life so quickly passed me by
Now Death’s sweet voice entrances
She smiles and she advances
And my spirit she will cradle
eyes expresses nothing but cold and distant
My smiles are only because I'm enjoying
No, I don't miss anyone.
Past is not what I want to look at anymore
Few people are those whom I don't want anymore
I gave and gave and nothing I received
Now I'm tired of giving so I left all...
i know i might just light this joint just for the touch , just for the rush
you dont even know the half of it , mad ruckess
tangled brain , im feeling like a hand puppet
cause she dont know im alone , im on my own
comatose , im feeling sick but im still posted up at...
Everything I write
Gets twisted into a fight
No matter how I feel
Words I have to conceal
Feelings I'm holding in
Pain and Hatred within
Trust has been shattered
My heart been tattered
Just cause love was lost
Thrown away at what cost
For another chance
My heart is as deep as the Hudson River. Its fresh with unpredictable currents. Once a murky barren zone is now the object of a mid summers swim.
My mind is a twisted Christmas peppermint stick. Its stale and forgotten in your grandmothers garage, along with...
like the rest
I will always be
What they can't see
I'll just be myself
Never have the wealth
Nor the fine cars
Can't give you the stars
Don't own a Rolex watch
Clothes don't match
Saying that comes from the past
Nice guys do finish last
I am very giving
Work hard for my...
Waking up in the morning,
another day dawns,
I rush to my computer,
I flip the cold box on.
As it's familiar sounds start,
Time to pour a cup,
I rush back to sign on,
To see if he's already up.
The "Sign In" is complete,
Today begins anew,
I gesture "Good Morning...
Just in case
You put a smile on my face
Making my heart skip a beat
Soul is now whole and complete
Challenged the depths of my mind
Darkness no longer left to find
Things you make my body feel
Wounds are beginning to heal
Sparking a brand new imagination
Friendship built on a...
Do not be afraid of life,the pain,the peril and the strife.Do not shrink with fear and dread from the things that lie ahead.
Do not be afraid to try-for no goal can be too high.You may fail but don't complain,you can always try again.
Do not be afraid to speak,to adventure and to...
I knew better
I put myself in this position
Just when I think I'm winning
I start losing
This game called love
It's so confusing
A vicious cycle with no conscience
No remorse, I made my choice
I sacrificed my heart
Was torn apart by feelings I let loose
It's a noose...
your breath on the window and the sand dunes covering the playground, this isn't even the right house but there you are, calling me backwards,
And tomorrow with that leering idiots refrain,
Well suppose, just for a moment, I don't need either of you, let it rest under the...
The way they walk, talk and stare..
I take from each movie a scene, a glance, every love word they share...
The way they hug, caress, the way they look in each others eyes..
The way they kiss, the way they smile..
in my head I'm replaying those scenes..
cannot clearly see
What is the use of ears
if you are told you cannot properly hear
What is the use of the mind
if you are told you do not really understand
What is the use of the World
If the best philosophers call it just a Metaphor
What is the use of your Self
When you look into someone's eyes, you can see everything.
You see emotions and their journey.
Their heartbreaks and their fears.
Their memories, maybe even eternity.
Now, look into my eyes,
And tell me what you see.
Can you see the darkness,
That lives deep within me?
that I will go mad
it is also quite possible
that also you will go crazy
thus the possibility of you and me
seeing through the Game of Life
why don't we thus decide
to take one day
at a time
than her own brother?
Spent so much energy
I tried for the best.
I got to know you the best.
I got to see you grow
In ways others couldn't.
Trust was gained then lost
At the cost of others.
That's when you know
Life isn't truly fair.
It's not when you don't have money
She cries each night,Never does she show her pain,Always hiding her face,How long can she stay strong?How many more days must she play along,Raw emotion in her eyes,Fear crawling up her spine as she wipes the tears,Looking down at her scars,Looking at her reflection as she hides...
On the platform I watched with fascination the lovers at the station
Lost in tender admiration
I had to turn my gaze away.
For the first time in a long time I missed your smile today.
Living life at a pace, agents to please, speeches to make and deadlines to keep.
The only time...
the door swings its motions
the air rushes through
the cycle it seems
But where is
what makes it new?
the people walk past
Below me the ground,
Above me the clouds
I stand upon the epicenter of the world
I am at ultimate peace and harmony with myself
I stand where my body and spirit
Are at one with the universe and the cosmos
I gaze upwards to see a celestial
Divine of ambiance within the clouds
The clouds unveil...
As a veil in your thoughts and dreams
Image of my red lips and red hair
Is what you remember
But no life is behind those thin eyes
While the real ones gleamed that colour
Like the rest of me
Shards tearing us apart
Or perhaps we were always torn...
so clear so
mercilessly and unavoidably
obvious that you
really do not need me
I just don’t know
how should I express
for this radical gift of honesty
perhaps it will do
if receive it
with a smile
chewed by my
path I take
Goes with me too
I can work alone
And think it is fun
To start a task
And see it done
I can sleep alone
For once I'm there
My dreams will take
I can stand alone
And face the fight
I will not run
If I know I'm right
But love alone
I can not do
brushes and paints
cannot do without
cameras and fancy lenses
sculptor needs a stone
or a piece of wood plus
hammer and chisel
yet we poets still
believe in using words
shadows and silence
I planted this seed...
watered it with my blood...
tried my best to shine...
my inner light upon it...
so it might prosper...
but as it broke through the soil...
I knew it was fragile...
maybe I sheltered it too much...
perhaps I didn't give it...
as much as I...
Broken pieces, shattered all around
We heard the sound, when it all hit the ground
Torn pages, in the book of my life
In the pain and strife, seems like a losing fight
Empty spaces, covered in clutter
My heart skips paces, and my words come in stutters
I see the places, where the...
In the gloam
deep in the forest
where the faeries sleep
There is one who knows
She knows the full measure
of you; the flame your smile kindles
The ache your brown eyes afford with every stroke
And the wake you leave in your leaving.
In the gloam
deep in the forest
woke me up
just in time
to not allow this
to come back
i was really
since it was much easier
to go get out of bed
her litter box
than it would be
to empty my mind
should the dream
be allowed to
I can't hold it in anymore
I shattered my own heart
Now I'm breaking down
I'm falling apart,
so listen to me now
I'm not okay
I'm not alright
This is the truth
I'm not Fine
My walls are crumbling Down
there's fire and hell all around
I can feel myself slowly...
