Category: Looking at You

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

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

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

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

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

Distance

You keep your distance,
Its hard to explain,
But I won’t complain,
Just give me a chance.

I really don’t care,
Actually I do.
Perhaps I am untrue,
Maybe I am a liar.

I have no defence,
Total transparency.
That … Read the rest

New Chapters

Never deny
Who you are
What you did
Or said.
Unreliable voices
in the head.
Take care
I am here
You are there
But together
We turn fear
Into friend
Look back
Was it ever
Really there?
Stories don’t end… Read the rest

No Idea

No idea where I take this don’t want to share.
Mental illness,
Is not a disease,
But please me,
Don’t walk away,
From me

Sometimes I think stoically,
You can burn the past.
It won’t last.
Will always bite you … Read the rest

Forget It

Happiness, step on my mind.
Take liberties,
Where I find,
But not with you.
Stew me out,
I can handle it.
Show me the door,
As I kiss you,
J’adore.
I got more,
Than this.
Don’t take the p**s.
So, … Read the rest

Respect

Just shut up and listen,
For a while.
The devil,
Has a handsome
Smile.
Not like mine,
Ripped off,
As a child.
No ransom paid,
So I went wild.
A feral kid,
Who did what,
He did.
Relied on no … Read the rest

Change the Beat

Change the beat.
I never cheat.
Could I ever,
Repeat that?
Don’t leave.
Maybe could.
Do I deviate?
Why the lie?
You never told.
So I grow cold.
Said I have addictive,
Personality,
To the truth.
Was not enough,
For … Read the rest

Sui Generis (Unique)

The facts,
I cannot take away.
Take you on a holiday.
We go bohemian,
For a while.
You say I am out of style,
But don’t detract from,
My smile.
I act like a child,
I know,
But it drives … Read the rest

Standing Ground

Magnify, sanctify,
Hallowed be thy name.
Did you stand beside me,
As I looked for fame?
No one held my hand,
So I am just the same.
I came asking,
Now I take the shame.
You came looking for me,… Read the rest

Diss

I am not a criminal
Sometimes maybe subliminal
Point a finger at me
I break it off
I am famous
For being dangerous
So don’t f**k about
I can shout louder
The sound of my voice
Your only choice
Don’t … Read the rest

Immaterial Gall

Listen up, word up hear the call
Not a day goes by
How and why
We ever happened at all

You are never on your own
Always on the telephone
Young men by my pool
Tennis coach and fitness trainer… Read the rest

Words to Her

Is this an olive branch I see,
Or some barbed stick to beat me?
Not seeking an apology that once,
You gave so freely.
The viciousness of your attack,
Would break the back of lesser men,
But I am made … Read the rest

Where?

Even when I got sober
I knew it was over.
You didn’t have to go
Behind my back.
I would have understood.
I wondered how you could,
But that’s enough of that.
Your not coming back,
That’s just a fact.… Read the rest

One More Kiss

Kiss me one more time
Before I get onto that plane.
But through the pain of separation
An enduring smile remains.
The smile remains.

I hold you one more time.
Your soft lips touch mine.
Our heated breath turns me … Read the rest
