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

Solace

The way to liberty is within me The faces around a table Shouting, screaming It’s me you wanna be I must choose if I’m able Exactly who I want to be Meanwhile, it is she who reflects My many faces back to me Timing is everything When words have deeper meaning Than superficially seeming Wrapped in embrace I find the inner me It’s a deeper, more vivid Version lit with energy A fleeting glimpse of another reality Potentiality Voices silenced Momentarily I’m getting closer I’m getting nearer Beginnings and endings Intertwined In this I find Solace

Rebirth

Life lays wanting a diferent way Clouded eyes seek new direction Intellect or via imagination? The Fates chatter in wanton glee They have a plan to set him free But will he ever actually see? And in the silence of the longest night Can they restore his second sight? And later, by the inner fire In that place of seeing That wonderful elemental domain Love washes through the pain She guides his Soul again And is maybe mirrored in reality Through a meeting on a train Light grows, love finds seed And sanctifies his need The future remains uncertain But the path is now set Life has found its way And dawn brings light of day

The City Between Heaven and Hell

There is a city midway Between heaven and hell It welcomes all with open arms Pretty women and tasty ale I spent many a year in its arms They come from far and wide Misfits, escapees and those in search of easier times And they gather With foamy beer and staring smiles No Sea will you find for many miles The mountains equally distant The river cuts this valley of despair The victorian houses stand monument To better times Like silent tombstones An air like death descends And smothers inhabitants choking Never a smile shall you see In Brno, pretty prison she is The pretty sirens sing And laugh with glee They have you trapped you see Escape is futile For us foreigners in exile there

Ride to the Danube

Wouldn’t it be strange If I found you alone on a train Wouldn’t it be just like lady Fate To send you to me too late But, I believe in miracles Guess I always did And I believe in dreaming You can think me stupid Life is nothing but a dream anyway   When I look in a mirror I don’t like what I see looking back Mortally wounded – so very deep But the mirror I met on that railway track She can light me up Alchemy on wheels And I believe in dreaming I just like how it feels I’m feeling and dreaming anyway   A ride to the Danube Clawing my way back from hell A glimpse of heaven in you Drinking at my wishing well Not

Edge of Day

Memories painted in my mind Tapestries spun from emotion Hanging as if to dry A long and windy road trod barefoot As if in requiem to another yesterday The wind howls a deep sigh Inside my head the pictures float A technicolor movie of my life Endlessly showing to a crowd of one Somewhere, the Sea crashes over the rocks That sit at the core of my being Will a B movie actor suffice? My road is forked My path lies which way? Eternal sunshine Or, I simply fall away I am a dreamer dreaming I am an observer observing A growing point in time Treading a weary line The footprints in the sand lead nowhere Except around and around Edging inwards away The mountains in the distance Beckon me

Online Dating

I’m looking for a date Despite it getting quite late I’ve tried Tinder and Badoo And OKCupid too Yet, all I find are bots And scams and attempts To defraud Porn star pictures Some of them dead A simple reverse search confirms A profile to dread I send messages That go unanswered Poems and thoughts and things That might interest Photos of course I select only What I think to be my best I’m a real catch for someone But this makes no sense Online dating It’s a lottery The ladies in waiting Never reply I an’t get their interest I feel I need to lie About my age To get a look in I want to shout Look at me! I’m wealthy, creative I look younger than I am

A Kiss

What I would give for a kiss A hug by a warm log fire Someone’s hand in mine To feel loved by a woman Who cares for me What I would give for summer Hand in hand on a beach Eyes staring into mine The warmth of her silken skin Loved and happy This loneliness is hard to bear Moment to moment I despair My heart is an empty shell And life a living hell What would I give for conversation Over a bottle of red wine Candle light flickering a while Casting light into the darkness That I now call life.
