    Book to a hook, laugh out loud it's not the end

    of the world yet, I shine like a star in the night sky, nobody really likes me but they want to be me, cat in a hat, A B C, 1 2 3, hook to a book This is not a song lyric, this is my poetry

    I want to run in the sun,

    I want to have fun with a gun, I want to go with the flow, I like the feel of the wind on my skin, blowing on trees while I'm naked I couldn't give a **** if anybody sees, I want to take flight with the light, I want to go higher than I have ever been this is not a song lyric...

    Tapestry...

    Weaving pictures in my mind, Of all the things I've left behind. A tapestry of memories, A portrait of how things used to be. A word, a thought, a laugh a smile, All beautifully etched in the image for a while. The colours fade, The feeling remains, Like a part of your soul has...

    Never Try Never Fail

    You and the Bottle

    I know that you and the bottle are buddies since way back when you say that whiskey stood by you, when you couldn't find a friend but sweetheart, I can't help but worry you need it more each passing day and when you crawl inside the bottle the best of you just crawls away Chorus...

    Splintered...

    I hear the pieces splinter, And in that moment time stands still. Shattering, falling, breaking, Like rain that pours unendingly. Pain courses through every fibre, It twists its jagged edges, embedding itself until It is all that remains. The pieces are so small, The pain can't...

    Unwanted

    Not the best song lyrics I've ever written but still I'm posting them. Throw it away, All your dreams, They're worthless, they say. They threw me out, Tossed me about, Pulled my life from me. All me hope drained away, In a secret, They put you down. Stand up, that's what we're...

    A Mask Of Smiles

    Do you see my smile? The one that I wear everyday The one that says I'm okay But am I? Do you hear me laughing At your lamest jokes And silly antics But is it for real? Or is it fake? Is it a mask I wear To avoid the questions? Or a mask that I wear To hide my emotions? Do you...

    Numb

    Is numbness an emotion? How can it not be when, at times, It’s all I ever feel?   Sometimes I wonder if it has a mind of its own It’s very deceptive, Clever, And cunning. At first it seeps into yourheart, Makes you cold, Weak, Vulnerable. Then it envelopes your...

    I now cannot sleep unless you are there to hold, I now cannot dream of silver or of gold, I wait for my dreams to fold as they crash into every one else I know, I grow tired I grow so old, for all of this you never show Hidden away like a shadow of love, these are the...
