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

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

I Wish….

I wish I could be your “shoes”,
Cosseted in leather
Holding your pretty feet.
Striding confidently
In some exclusive shopping street.

I wish I could be the “nylons”
That cling to your thighs.
The sighs I would give,
To the … Read the rest

Charge my Glass

Charge my glass
For the last time dear,
I will drink to your beauty.

Charge my glass
For now I fear
They are coming for me.

The sirens wail I hear
An old familiar tune
And soon I wont be … Read the rest

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

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.

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

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

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

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
