Back Yard Blues

I am in her back yard.
Not so vain.
Go into the mood.
It’s plain to see.
I am a discard,
A formality.
Whatever the pain
I have no regard.
I see his blushing tears
Weep over me.
He said

The Tramp Sweet

I saw a tramp stagger across the road.
So drunk, his feet slurred the tarmac.
Made it to the other side.
Lay down.
Guess he may have died.
There was nothing to say
Just look on;
And the air was

For Your Eyes Only

I hold your hand
And feel the fear inside;
You never met anyone like me. I am no threat
Forever in your debt.
You saved me once.
I must repay 
I watch the sunlight
Cascade into an empty room
And

Just A Man

He is just a man;
But the covenants not broken
Even if not spoken.
He bares his load.
Living by a code
He does what he can.
And will always
Do the same ’till he is taken.
He is just

Untitled

Nobody here but me.
There’s a figure
Swinging from a tree.
A trait of personality.
Not depressed,
So much to live for
But just could not see.
Where was he going.
Sowing the seeds
Gathered before.
What will he reap

Noose

We can’t liberate
Our feelings.
They cascade,
Degrade
From love
To friendship.
When breathing
Feels like stealing
Cooperate.
No lip service;
It’s a mandate.
Rise above.
Can’t get p****d
While doing this
Then it has no meaning.
If you do

Love

Love is a sacrifice
For ever,
Doesn’t matter 
How clever
You are
There is only love.
Deny it
You can try it,
No one will buy it.
To love a woman ever
Is your life
You can’t destroy
Having a

Yellow Dungarees

A man walks into a bar.
Hands in pockets, searching for change.
It’s late, very late. He finds some coins; spills them on the bar.
“Give me a double bourbon”
He is served.
Looking around the dim lit room sees

Struggle

You are in the corner
And you can feel the pain,
Taste the blood
In your mouth
And carry on again.
So much to lose
But more to gain;
Unaware
Of the crowd
Baying for your blood tonight.
For their

Soul

A soul,
One gift;
The power to shift.
Can he please humanity
Or is it vanity?
Insubstantial,
Recreational
Seeking immortality.
With no regard for self,
A modern day tragedy
Before our eyes.
Despise him if you wish,
That dish served

Cascade

He is a manic sir,
You don’t thank him nightly
He will come at you brightly’,
Like a star;
Capacious,
Don’t want a fuss,
Capricious
In his tendency.
No one knew 
The truth that lay within.
He loved
He laughed,

A Song

Here’s a song,
Could be long,
I can’t borrow from tomorrow.
Feel the hand
Take away;
I just feel sorrow.
You were blessed,
Not caressed
Enough I know.
Oh yes,
I outlived my stay.
If true love ever happens
That

P**S OFF! [Daughter]

How dare you!
My own  daughter.
So petty minded
I have to close
This account.
Expect nothing more
Everything gets cancelled
As I shut the door
Now f**k off
Tell your mum
You are on your own.
How does that … Read the rest

Come With Me

Come with me,
One thing on my mind.
Do you love me,
Yes or no?
I am not blind,
But I must know,
If not,
I must go.

Oh my love,
What is going on?
I stare at the stars … Read the rest

Next II (Daughter)

I know you love him,
No picture,
Just  a frame,
And the shame,
You feel closely,
Will pass away.
A man can do so much,
But he cannot grasp,
When his reach falls short.
He is dying,
But once he … Read the rest

Something

I think we are alone,
No TV or phones,
So, pick the bones out of this dear.
You’re welcome
There is nothing to fear.
The worlds a stage,
But actors badly cast,
Each plays a part,
But it steers towards … Read the rest

Bang Bang

Bang bang you shot me down.
I don’t believe in anything.
You say no more.
Feels strange,
That you tell lies.
Fly blown,
Just the kind,
I despise,
I am not your clown.
I can love,
Or frighten you,
The … Read the rest

Odd Man Out

Wearing lies,
Like fake tattoos.
Lips as thin as an axe.
He has grey eyes,
And has no ties.
These are just the facts.

He looks kinda sad,
In his shabby clothes,
Walking down the street.
Maybe he’s mad,
But … Read the rest

Fly

Don’t go in there!
There is something living.
He thought of flies.
They get busy,
As they die.
That bzz bzz,
As when caught in a glass.
Is this where,
He came to rest at last?
No matter,
That was … Read the rest

Life

What is a life man creates,
Then debates with himself,
And states,
The obvious.
Oblivious,
To how he behaved,
Cradle to grave.
Says his concern is the truth,
But lied,
All the way.
Do we count him well?
Don’t judge,… Read the rest

The Battle

Ok, word,
Lets get down to it.
You wrote sonnets,
When all the girls wore bonnets.
You went to grammar school,
Just like I did,
But like a kid
No, wait.
By age sixteen,
You were versed,
In one hundred … Read the rest
