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

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

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

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

Letters

Letters on the hallway floor,
Should I read them,
I am not sure.
Anxiously collected,
Why do I feel insecure?
Address is right,
And the name,
Council tax,
Bills in the main.
Then there’s one,
I open first.
Written in … 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

Hearts

The ruptured structure,
Of our lives,
Denies,
The truth.
If you want proof,
A heart so broken
Can’t be put back together,
Unless someone,
Picks it up,
Walks with it,
Runs with it,
To fields of rapture.… Read the rest

No Witness

Going down,
Feeling it’s the beat.
Going underground,
Where I don’t make a sound.
So many memories,
In the lost and found.
I can be discreet.
What,
Did I say?
Repeat.
Just said I loved you,
On the street,
But … 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

Purity

You don’t get confused,
By the body of Christ,
And so I rise.
Three days,
Just to look at you,
I don’t want to lose.
I choose my moment,
So specifically,
I don’t judge.
Romance,
I will not comment.… Read the rest

Development Arrested

Development arrested,
But tested,
To the limit.
I could never be a man,
Just a child,
Inside.
Some women thought me handsome,
But the ransom,
Once paid,
Always brought rejection.
Overlaid,
With fear,
Self doubt.
My heart is open,
Tell … Read the rest
