    Restless Man

    Like an eagle in a cage somewhere, clipped wings by his sides You can read the secret dreams of flight that soar behind his eyes He may stay a while and love you, let you feed him from your hand Ah, but leave the cage door open, you'll find the eagle's spirit strong deep...

    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...

    Lately my thoughts have been clouded I'm jaded

    and surrounded By enemies who approach me like their friends with me Whisky and Hennessy Pouring into the glass with venom and heat She hasn't called last night Paranoia sinks in my skin and anxiety reaches new heights Who is she with, what is she doing Who's the other...

    When you... When you took my hand,

    You took my soul. When you looked into my eyes, All you saw was a deep dark hole. . Help me when I'm falling deeper down. I need you her to make me feel loved. For every word you say is sweet. And my heart stops each time we meet. A day seems like an hour when you...

    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...

    Fly Away...

    So, sometimes I get ideas in my head for poems. I mostly write lyrics, but occassionally an idea will pop into my head so I will write it down. This isn't very good, and I will probably adapt it, but I thought I would get it down whilst it was still fresh in my mind and edit it...

    Lost In Your Heart-beat

    Take a step back, Look at your life, Put it in perspective, See what it's worth. Through the good and bad times, You said you'd be there, But now you're gone, It just aint fair. And I'm the one that's been abandoned, Left behind on my own, Tangled in the mess you've made. But I...

    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...
