For Your Eyes Only

I hold your hand
And feel the fear inside;
You never met anyone like me. I am no threat
Forever in your debt.
You saved me once.
I must repay 
I watch the sunlight
Cascade into an empty room
And

Just A Man

He is just a man;
But the covenants not broken
Even if not spoken.
He bares his load.
Living by a code
He does what he can.
And will always
Do the same ’till he is taken.
He is just

Untitled

Nobody here but me.
There’s a figure
Swinging from a tree.
A trait of personality.
Not depressed,
So much to live for
But just could not see.
Where was he going.
Sowing the seeds
Gathered before.
What will he reap

Love

Love is a sacrifice
For ever,
Doesn’t matter 
How clever
You are
There is only love.
Deny it
You can try it,
No one will buy it.
To love a woman ever
Is your life
You can’t destroy
Having a

Yellow Dungarees

A man walks into a bar.
Hands in pockets, searching for change.
It’s late, very late. He finds some coins; spills them on the bar.
“Give me a double bourbon”
He is served.
Looking around the dim lit room sees

Struggle

You are in the corner
And you can feel the pain,
Taste the blood
In your mouth
And carry on again.
So much to lose
But more to gain;
Unaware
Of the crowd
Baying for your blood tonight.
For their

Soul

A soul,
One gift;
The power to shift.
Can he please humanity
Or is it vanity?
Insubstantial,
Recreational
Seeking immortality.
With no regard for self,
A modern day tragedy
Before our eyes.
Despise him if you wish,
That dish served

Cascade

He is a manic sir,
You don’t thank him nightly
He will come at you brightly’,
Like a star;
Capacious,
Don’t want a fuss,
Capricious
In his tendency.
No one knew 
The truth that lay within.
He loved
He laughed,

A Song

Here’s a song,
Could be long,
I can’t borrow from tomorrow.
Feel the hand
Take away;
I just feel sorrow.
You were blessed,
Not caressed
Enough I know.
Oh yes,
I outlived my stay.
If true love ever happens
That

Something

I think we are alone,
No TV or phones,
So, pick the bones out of this dear.
You’re welcome
There is nothing to fear.
The worlds a stage,
But actors badly cast,
Each plays a part,
But it steers towards … 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

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

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

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

Icarus Did Not Die

Wings of wax and feathers,
We glide
From this maze,
But remember:
Don’t fly
Too close to the sun;
Or hopes and dreams
Will melt.
Now leap,
We go together.
Like I saw it with my own eyes,
Saw the

Amusement

Too late,
I have to demonstrate
That I ain’t got a screw loose.
By now
You should have worked it out;
Running out of juice,
Living on the fumes
Of yesterday.
And I pray
Every day
Nothing conclusive comes.
You

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
