Even when I got sober
I knew it was over.
You didn’t have to go
Behind my back.
I would have understood.
I wondered how you could,
But that’s enough of that.
Your not coming back,
That’s just a fact.… Read the rest

Half Light

A half light.
Neither morning or night
Fills my room.
Thoughts come unbidden
And ideas hidden
In the recess of my mind.
Now free,
They wander,
Wraith like.
Ephemeral, formless
Often incoherent.
But sometimes, sometimes
They stick, take shape
And … Read the rest

Tied to the Mast

I took refuge
In your heart.
From a world
That sometimes didn’t get me
Or simply couldn’t see
What I was all about.
No matter how I shouted,
I was never heard,
So I didn’t speak a word,
But now … Read the rest

Be Mine

I searched for such a long time.
Was the hope of love fading
Like the closing of the day?
Or had it just begun,
A fire that cannot die.
I had been in love before,
But never like this.
One … Read the rest

One More Kiss

Kiss me one more time
Before I get onto that plane.
But through the pain of separation
An enduring smile remains.
The smile remains.

I hold you one more time.
Your soft lips touch mine.
Our heated breath turns me … Read the rest

Existere (latin, to become.)

For all the women
I never had
When I tried to impress.

For the love I gave
And the love I had
That never seemed to last.

For the drugs and booze
when I went too far
A creature of … Read the rest


Her touch indescribable.
The scrambled bible in his mind.
Was he dealing with an angel?
Surely, surely.
What else could she be?
He gave what he could,
Only his love.
Prayed it would satisfy,
But never sure.
Remember, don’t forget,

Ever Love

Did you ever love so much
You just want to die?
In the special moments of ecstasy.
Now they only make you cry,
And all the time
You wonder why.
But you can’t make it better,
No matter how you … Read the rest


I love the way you laugh.
My soul cries out
For a woman like that.
You are not there for me
So let’s make a pact.
You know I love, leave that aside.
You can ride me senseless;
You love … Read the rest

War Story

He loved it,
Saw an unexpected beauty in it.
You had to look closely,
Difficult to define.
He had a job to do
And he loved it.
It was death or victory
For him.
I thought he had a screw … Read the rest


Look dear baby
What’s going on between us;
Because I sense a difference
Between us.
Life can be tragic,
But is magic
At times.
When the rhymes don’t fit straight.
You can do it,
You can do it,
I know … Read the rest


I chose a life less worthy.
Don’t think again.
Put my finger to your lips
Don’t lie again.
Can’t we just begin
Not really sure.
Some thing’s lay forgotten
And blister on the floor.
In sunlight.… Read the rest


I can’t tell you how to be.
Just look at me
And the controversy
That surrounds.
I ain’t grounded
In any thought,
Not specially,
But i do have a capacity
For love.
The only thing
That’s real to me.

I … Read the rest


So don’t explain it,
I can’t try.
But I love the way you hurt,
And I love the way you lie.
A confused mind,
One of a kind.
The mold is broken.
Saying a token
To over reach.
Yet I … Read the rest


Am I the body of Christ?
The resurrection,
The way, the truth
And the life.
He that believes in me
Will never die.
Horse s**t.
Gave that up
Long time ago,
But still go back to it
Like an addict.… Read the rest


If you don’t like it
Then just f**k off.
My house,
My rules.
Sure I’ll miss you,
But not enough
To want you to stay.
It’s in my blood.
Can’t get it away now,
I am not deranged,
Estranged from

Just Want You To Know

I want to take you home,
Keep you safe
From the nonsense out there.
I can’t bare
The thought you are unhappy.
Slap my face
If I am impertinent;
I live in my head.
No shed, with p***o mags.

A Tear

So I bust a gut
Trying to rhyme.
Just give me some time
I will think of something
That will blow your mind.
Sooner or later
The world will catch up with you,
The mayhem I left behind.
Washed my … Read the rest

Just a Thought

Did you ever feel like this,
When you get p****d off
At every word they say?
So you pray
They would just go away,
Leave you alone;
But the phone
It rings incessantly,
So you answer
But the words
Choke … Read the rest

Dream – Doctor’s Visit

I was on my way to the doctors wearing only my underpants as I was expecting to be examined.
I stepped into the lift, but stopped at the wrong floor.
I asked someone where the clinic was but didn’t get … Read the rest
