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

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

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

Rogue

Did you see him,
On the highway?
Was he wasted?
Where was he going?
I can’t say,
There’s no way of knowing.

How did he look?
I suggest,
A little forsook.
Well, he must be in book.
Check forensics DNA… 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
