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

Odd Man Out

Wearing lies,
Like fake tattoos.
Lips as thin as an axe.
He has grey eyes,
And has no ties.
These are just the facts.

He looks kinda sad,
In his shabby clothes,
Walking down the street.
Maybe he’s mad,
But … Read the rest

Fly

Don’t go in there!
There is something living.
He thought of flies.
They get busy,
As they die.
That bzz bzz,
As when caught in a glass.
Is this where,
He came to rest at last?
No matter,
That was … Read the rest

Life

What is a life man creates,
Then debates with himself,
And states,
The obvious.
Oblivious,
To how he behaved,
Cradle to grave.
Says his concern is the truth,
But lied,
All the way.
Do we count him well?
Don’t judge,… Read the rest

The Battle

Ok, word,
Lets get down to it.
You wrote sonnets,
When all the girls wore bonnets.
You went to grammar school,
Just like I did,
But like a kid
No, wait.
By age sixteen,
You were versed,
In one hundred … Read the rest

Strange Fascination

I have come to the end,
Now do I bend the rules,
And watch fools gather.
Old dear friend,
Look at their faces,
Eyes dry,
No crying here,
But I must die.
Not pursued by a bear.
Exit stage left.… Read the rest

Treasure

I could give up the world forever
I am tired and my journeys quit done
But I look at you
And I see through a
And the pleasure
You gave
Is like treasure
To a poor man
Lost at sea… Read the rest

Martin Luther

I had a dream.
Words well chosen
By Doctor King.
Brings back a memory.
Of things,
That might have been.
You don’t critique
The messenger,
For acts unseen.
Listen to his words
As his mind is keen.
He liked women,… Read the rest

Give up the World

I could give up the world forever.
I am tired and my journeys quite done,
But i look at you
And  I see through and through,
Why I am still alive
And the pleasure
You gave
Is like treasure,
To … Read the rest

Low

Thursday morning at 8 o’clock
And his day begins.
Brushes his teeth
And goes downstairs,
Knowing there’s nobody there.
He stares into the mirror,
And combs his hair
In the early light.
Try’s to remember what
Happened last night.
His … 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

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

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
