The Frog Prince

She grew up as a princess Spoiled through and through Graced by good looks and a photogenic face That took her far and wide Never needing to stand up for herself As rich men took her under wing Italy, Monte Carlo, and guilded palaces held her tall Moet and Cavier, Ferraris and five star Haute couture and the disco Paid the money that she saved The rich guys paid for her lifestyle And now it fades away like all things do The looks, the body, slowly fade She now has a home in Tuscany Where for now, she can relive The ghosts of her life But she is really alone And always will be For her heart does not know love Every time she found it She had reason to

Regrets

Looking back, it was a mistake One of any number that now plague me Life is a journey Decisions get made And then there are the regrets. The feeling that it could have been different Perhaps, should have been different Knowing that fate was maybe stacked against you Karma being worked as the Wheel turned “It’s life,” she told me today She’s right, but that can’t take away The regrets Karmic debts Have I paid in full yet? Is my future set? A decade gone and all I have Are regrets If I could go back, what would I fix? I’d fix the part of me That couldn’t really see The love I needed lay within me I didn’t need her I don’t need you I don’t need anyone Except

The Dilemma of Fatherhood

How to explain to a child That I am imperfect? How to cover an inadvertent lie? How to be strong when I feel so weak? How to be a man who does what he speaks? The dilemma of Fatherhood The dilemma of life How to describe evil And otherwise good? How to be fair and just How to to explain the passion of lust? The dilemma of fatherhood The dilemma of life How to not pass on my hang ups My hurts, my fears and my pain How to keep her canvas whole Help her explore and find her way How not to criticise How to be her guide That stands by her side?

Fire

There’s a fire in my soul Fire in my … Fire Burn, Burn, Burn Fire in my belly Fire in my speech Burning Burn, Burn, Burn There’s a smoulder inside my body A flame within my soul Burning Rising on a wave of passion Fire flames my desire For you Burn, Burn, Burn The fire is inside of me The fire is inside of you We flame Flame

The Kiss

My lips seek yours The moist touch of playfulness The taste of your scent The electricity of the touch A spiral into the decadence Of pure momentary enjoyment You draw me in and our noses brush I’m falling, falling I’m longing for your touch I long for it so much The kiss Is bliss Heavenly

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
