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

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

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

What Must be Done

Structure imposed,
On the structureless.
Meaning imposed,
On the meaningless.
The beauty of chaos,
And the pointless,
Juxtaposed.
Reality paper thin.
Trying to make sense,
Where do I begin?
Will someone ask,
What’s going on?
They don’t know,
So I … 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

Let it Go

Chasing sheets of paper
On the wind
They fly away
My thoughts upon them
But that was yesterday
Scattered in my dreams
I know
What they mean and say
To me.
Move on
Let go
Let go… 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

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

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

Enough

Sordid details won’t go away.
Try to kill them,
But they stay.
You can’t run and hide,
They hunt you down.
You never lied.
I know you tried.
Now its all gone.
What of his poor son?
I will not … Read the rest
