Cigarettes and Coffee

Get the mood down.
But I get up,
Watching the moon frown.
No regrets;
Looking at the cigarettes
In the coffee
I almost downed.
But I was wasted,
Yet tasted
The possibility
That something
Would come soon.
Need a clear … Read the rest

Love, No Frills

Love makes fools of us all,
Where even the clever fall.
Try to fight it,
You will lose.
Has no respect for age
Or for any rules,
It’s just the life we choose.
Often dangerous and cruel;
We gamble every … Read the rest

Icarus Did Not Die

Wings of wax and feathers,
We glide
From this maze,
But remember:
Don’t fly
Too close to the sun;
Or hopes and dreams
Will melt.
Now leap,
We go together.
Like I saw it with my own eyes,
Saw the … Read the rest

The Word

The word.
I am the world.
Don’t f**k with me, I know how this is fashioned,
Built on blood
Are we understood?
Put a gun to my head.
I dare you,
Do I scare you?
Be afraid.
What happens next… Read the rest

Amusement

Too late,
I have to demonstrate
That I ain’t got a screw loose.
By now
You should have worked it out;
Running out of juice,
Living on the fumes
Of yesterday.
And I pray
Every day
Nothing conclusive comes.

Butterfly

Come fly butterfly;
We go together
And I will try
To show a better life.
Reach out, hold my hand,
You will not fall.
We promised everything;
Now hear my call.
Sworn to the damned,
But I can see angels.… Read the rest

911

Keeps coming to my head
I don’t cry no more,
I think of you instead.
Your eyes, smile, laughter;
Not a chapter
In the life I led.
You were the book,
The alpha and omega.
Your flesh made permanent
Indelible … Read the rest

Down

Down, down,
You shot me down.
What must I prove
‘Till I can reach the ground
Where I can stand?
I don’t care what it takes,
Or what I have to do,
I have nothing left to loose.
You charmed … Read the rest

Once

Once, we did play;
How we chased a million stars
And touched as only one can.
See, how I move,
Chance would have you
Glance at me
To know how you move me.
Long ago, how could I forego
Holding … Read the rest

Adieu

With no kindness,
Comes no fear.
With the blindness,
Comes no tear.
You are party to the few.

It didn’t seem I fitted,
They wanted me committed.
Always rational and polite,
Depending on,
Your point of view.

De-rated and berated,… Read the rest

Dead Man Walking

Cleansing in the blood,
Of those who came before.
I was once a good man,
But now I am not so sure.
You ask the question,
I give you more.

Don’t know why I did it,
Maybe even up some … Read the rest

Rogue

Did you see him,
On the highway?
Was he wasted?
Where was he going?
I can’t say,
There’s no way of knowing.

How did he look?
I suggest,
A little forsook.
Well, he must be in book.
Check forensics DNA… Read the rest

Clown

Sorry, don’t know,
Where time went.
Eroded and corroded,
Thrashed by sentiment.
Chewed up and bent.
Liked to get loaded,
White wine, whiter lines,
Screwed, smoking weed,
So I could sleep.
The days I nearly died,
Mashed and ferment,
This … Read the rest

The Wolf

Little to do,
But think of you..
So I prowl,
and howl,
Like a wolf,
At the moon.
See you soon I   hope.
Till  then,
Just cope.
Life for the living,
There is no way,
Of knowing.
At the end … Read the rest

Dilettante

Join the dots,
Of my tears.
Hear the fears,
In my heart,
What do they say to you?
On my knees,
In deep freeze,
And praying,
Don’t go down that hole.
Don’t go down again,
No, no, no.
We both … Read the rest

New Years

New year’s eve,
Brazilian style.
Nephews, nieces,
For a while.
If this don’t make,
You smile,
You’re not a child,
Inside.
I know you are.
You want to share,
But you’re going spare,
Inside.
They fill the room.
Different faces,… Read the rest

Dark Streets

Walking down dark streets.
Darker thoughts follow him.
Where does he begin?
No story left,
The warp and weft,
Of life he wears,
His cares in every stitch,
Yet rich with ideas.
He looks for ancient patterns,
In a tidal … Read the rest

Blame

Blame,
Taken fully, or not at all,
Either point untrue.
Along the line,
Which joins the two.
Where do I stand?
The call is up to you.
I cannot judge,
Lest I am too easy,
Or too harsh,
But I … Read the rest

The Question

He’s  sentimental,
Just a fool.
With his dreams,
Or so it seems.
Moon light,
Scented roses,
Pose a question,
That pulls,
At his heart.
Can he start?
He must,
Or he will go mental.
Thinks he’s got a virus,
Maybe … Read the rest

Humanity

Listen well in quiet rooms,
There maybe something there.
Speak soft amidst the noise of crowds,
And your voice will be heard.
Act when others do not dare,
They are full of doubt and fear.
Be generous when you have … Read the rest

Soft Tones

Soft tones,
Down the telephone.
The catch of breath,
Imagining their world together.
Sweet pain of separation,
Yet ties cannot be broken.
Loves intoxication,
Makes dizzy,
With the expectation.
So precious to each other.
Hearts reaching,
Always touching.
Then face … Read the rest
