Lonely Strangers

We are strangers coming from distant worlds, lonely strangers with a past that nearly killed us. We are strangers with demons behind, that will follow us forever. We are shy people with expectations that we hide, We are humans with longing and imagination. We are fragile poets drowning in dreaming. We are superstars letting the world know only the best of us, We are shining stars wanting to give ourselves completely. We are angels caring for the others, We are parents with commitments, Neglecting our inner child. We are ghosts with overwhelming pangs of anxiety That forces us to run. We are dreamers that got that carried away, Liking the idea of themselves. We are lost souls searching for the other half to merge. We are sad heroes dreaming and

Hey Dad

Hey Dad It’s been a while since we last spoke Face to face Thought I’d drop you a line Tell you I treasure the memories Of you You know I have your photos All over my place You were always smiling Always mischievous Always fun Always there when needed I don’t know how you did it Really, cos now I know Being a father too How difficult kids can be And how hard is it to see What is best to do I remember waving bye Deni and I At the airport The last time I ever saw you You made your trip Back home Where one day I will find you Waiting Waiting for me I miss you Dad I always will

The Other Me

Got this person in my head I used to think he was me Now I see him as my enemy He tells me I’m no good Tells me, I’m a failure The voice is mine But these are not my words Sometimes, he changes tune Tells me I’m the shit The bees knees But I don’t believe him Not one bit Then sometimes He likes to make me doubt Lose my trust In the stream of life Fills my head with angst And bitter strife But, I found him out! The voice is a liar The voice isn’t me He’s a bloody whiner Chattering incessantly I’m not listening anymore Not reacting to his Endless narrative It’s my life Not his I don’t know who it is This voice that sounds

Edge of Love

Can you imagine a feeling so deep That you suddenly lost your way? The moment drifts off somewhere And there is nothing to say? Suddenly, the world is gone And the two seem as one The world stopped just for a moment It simply disappeared As if never there at all And everything important Became meaningless and trite And the moment simply was Tears come from nowhere Indescribable feelings so deep So intense There is no longer pretence No longer a care Drifting somewhere On the edge of love

Ripples

The stream flows by Bubbling, laughing at the sky And its crystal depths Remain unfathomable It is Eternal fullness Reflecting the sky I am a ripple Disturbing its surface Distorting Cavorting Playfully Not understanding why A part of the whole A communal soul Adding something Indeterminable Yet, beautiful To reality

Perfect Song

I want to write the perfect song A soaring anthem of love Compelling and catchy So that you have to sing along It must connect to your soul And resonate with meanings Communicate my feelings It must be mysterious Just like you And yet, also serious Just like me I want to write the perfect song Filled with beauty Rhythmic and melodic An echo to your heartbeat Celebrating life Communicating joy Expressive and perfect Filled with deeper meaning Emotions truly streaming To have you dreaming Dreaming along

I am A Rock

I am an island Set in an azure sea I am beautiful A kaleidoscope of colors Filled with glowing light Fertile and abundant   I am a rock A standing stone Timeless, eternally free I am faces Smiling in the Sun Morphing shadows of fun   I am One And also a multitude A crowd of aspects Moving in harmony The many personas Bound together willingly   I am me In touch with identity I am real and free Blowing in the wind Shining in the moonlight Finally free   I am an artist Seeing the world clearly But in my own way Pursuing my creativity In any way I chose This is simply me   I am Fool Traveling the experience Learning as I go And sharing Whatever I

Just Be

I once thought I knew where this was going But that was the old controlling me Now I know, I found a treasure Someone different Who makes me feel like me I’m just gonna let go now And see Where this take us I’m going to go with the flow To live in the moment And just be

I Yearn to be Free

And I yearn to be free To soar the heavens With feathered wings And seeing eyes Escape the past Escaping me There is peace I sense its warmth But it is elusive Lost in the shadows Of myself I yearn to be free To find that inner me That rock of stability To free the shackles That seem to hold me I put them there Of that I am aware But somehow I lost the key Somewhere in a cluttered me I’m getting closer I know it To the change That will set me free To soar and finally see

You are my song

This song is for you The one who occupies my thoughts Who fills my dreams The one who answers My innermost desires This song is for you Even if you never know it You are a mirror To my aching tortured soul My glowing muse This song is about you The one I want to touch and feel The one I need to be with Desire is like a fire Burning within me You are my song You are my lyrics You are the one That inspires me
