Touch Me

I am an island of emotion A ship wrecked at sea I am sliding through water Reflecting an eternal me I yearn for your touch The feeling of your skin The sense that I am not alone Feel the energy within Your hands in my hands A fountain of humanity Your glowing inner warmth Heals my soul, restores sanity Touch me Don’t be afraid Touch me Let your warmth cascade Into my soul And plumb the depths Of humanity Explore its wonderful healing effects Touch me Touch my body Touch my soul and I’ll touch yours

Resurrection

The darkness crept in like a thief in the night It came from an unexpected source It clouded my judgement It froze the blood in my veins Its hard to see in the dark All you can do is try to feel the pain   Pushing, pushing darkness away The source of my pain The lady who lit me up Stole my light bit by bit The fire she started was never for me But only for her   The dawn is breaking over my heart And the embers of love still remain There to be fueled and burst aflame But not by her, not ever again The darkness and all that pain Is passing as I live again.

Humanity

If I owned life, I’d fly Flap my wings and rise up into the sky I’d laugh at everything I see I’d become the opposite of me If I was the one and only God I’d play tricks on you all you see I’d reward the one you least expected to be My favorite human in humanity To me this is a silly game The rules are written by another me And I long yes long to be free Let me be, let me be me

The Face of Silence

The face of silence has pursed lips Reacted to sordid video clips Inside is still, be still Outside is all about steely will The face of silence is deeply wrinkled An ageless piano gently tinkled Stillness rippled still Empty silence to fill The face of silence is a bore One unsightly redeye sore Be still, be still Staring from my windowsill The face of silence is no more Thunderously loud to the core Be still, take your fill Deafeningly loud but be still In the silence In the emptiness Thunderous applause In the stillness In the void Explosive sounds Ironic But still Truth

War

I had a vision one day So difficult to explain or to say We were all just One And that One was God It was Life Humanity Yet, we nailed ourselves to the cross Of materialism And depravity And we rejoiced In our ignorance of division Yes – Joy division I’m here to tell you We need a revision We need a rethink We need to stop and contemplate Before it is simply to late I feel the winds of war I feel the stench of depravity I feel the inevitable The war of us and them Them and us Us against us

Murder of Self

Humanity Insanity The walls grow Between us And I just sit and cry And ask why? Humanity Depravity Why do we constantly Reach the lowest common denominator How do we not see? The sheer fragility The depths of our soul The realizations That would make us whole? Corruption Destruction That seems to be us Always seeking The next thing to hate That is our eternal state No wonder we were cast out It was a total rout We fell and are still falling And I am in mourning Seeing the bigger picture As opposed to the blister That I have the urge to scratch There can be no redemption Until we finally see That you, you are me And I am you

Hell Burns Brightly

There comes a point When you just give up Nothing I can really do There comes a point When it’s understood This world is just fucked up How people think is beyond me Circling an endless cycle Of hate, war and pain No collective memory Imbecile telemetry Pushed and jostled around Losing ground The puppeteer grins A maniacal smile And all the while They sleep oblivious The ripples shimmer The mind gets dimmer Packed with irrelevant filth No one thinks anymore Thought patterns Deeply ingrained Like a wound inflamed I can’t believe That you can’t see How easily How sleazily You are manipulated Catipulated Into chaos The pit Hell burns brightly In heaven Today

Anxiety Attack

Somewhere Another side of me Shakes in fear Shuns the world And company Sometimes This other side Tries to take control Shake, rattle and roll Beating like a drum Heart feels wired Cold, clammy hands Insides all mangled My thoughts tangled A panic attack Drop a tiny pill The world becomes still Who is he? This stalker This shadow part of me? Where did he come from What does he want? Anxious to know Anxiety show And How could this happen to me?

Do you think that would sell?

So who shouts the loudest? Am I getting through? Satisfying you Seeking an audience So very hard Need to sell my soul Or get a little luck Nip and tuck My way to fame I have ambition And I’d sell for cheap Until contrition Set in and spoiled it Tweet and turn Leave a mark In indelible ink Or a coffee stain By the kitchen sink Listen, I got stuff to tell Ghosty ghoulies Scary as hell Do you think that would sell?

April Fool

It’s April 1st Can March be finished already? Where did it go? Does anyone know? So, it’s spring again Mr. Weather doesn’t know Wether to rain or shine Mother nature is also confused Not knowing quite what to do Someone up there must have had a few But so much to look forward to Summer is coming The clock is running Climbing to the Year’s noon Meanwhile Coat or no coat? Shall I need a brolly? Better not to be wet and sorry April showers Pretty flowers Allergies playing up As Nature releases Yellow dust spread Like marmalade on bread crust Mother Nature’s lust New life arriving So cool You old April Fool!
