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!

So Many questions….

Got to love the laughter Got to give it soul No way that should matter After all, it’s just another hole Falling in and falling out This is the year of doubt I’m not sure what’s up Not sure what’s in or out I’m spinning away slowly Lazily heading south Words are forming But never leave my mouth The journey continues But does it have a purpose Does it have a reason or why? Does it end when I die? Did anything truly matter? A burst of energy Scattered light too bright A burning forgotten moment Coming just to be going Here just to be gone Now I am longing To know To learn What was it all about?

Miracles Do Happen

Learning Growing Building Gaining strength Waiting Being Talking Seeing hope Miracles do happen Every spring, new life appears And springtime may be here At the beginning of winter A touch of love A hope held deeply A dream explained Patience the virtue and here I am Hoping Feeling Something new growing Healing Seeing That spring has sprung anew Miracles do happen Oh yes they do Through you I am living again Laughing in the rain Soaking up the Sun Again having fun Hoping that spark of joy Will burst into flame

Wounded

I am so wounded So hurt, I am not living I am so wounded So hurt, I cannot see What it might be like to be free I gave everything – all of me Built a castle in the air It seems so fucking unfair The castle has dissolved And taken with it Everything I believed in My smile has been wiped Like an old unwanted tape My happiness kicked into touch It all meant so much I am not living, but surviving So lonely, so stuck in the past A fairytale of memories That I hoped would last Lost, cast adrift, cut to the bone How did I end up so alone? I lived for you, not me Rejected, I finally see How I lost myself in an ‘us’

Endings and Beginnings

I was willing to work I was willing to be someone else I was willing to be whatever you needed me to be And yet You threw it away I would have given you anything I would have turned a blind eye I would have done whatever it took you see I woke up that morning In a pure funk Understood I had lost myself You broke my heart Took me so completely apart Now I’m picking up my pieces And puzzling over where they belong Thats why I am writing this bloody song Directionless Even emotionless Until it overwhelms Rolls over me like the rushing waters Crushing, washing and flipping me The panic starts The anxiety rises You are always full of surprises Endings are beginnings So they say

Tracks across The Sky

Tracks across the sky Scars of modern travel Highways in the air A line to follow you there A silver bird migrating To summer’s golden shores Arrows flying straight and true Arriving to take off yet anew Looking down from up on high The globe’s curves miraculous Jagged peaks and darkened seas Warmer climes or a winter freeze Passing by at the speed of sound Until we slow to return to ground Leaving, on a jet plane Leaving, never to come back again Away I go So Bye bye

The Words Won’t Come

I really think I should be saying something but the words wont come Guess I am shocked or surprised Or a little of both besides So much I want to say but the words won’t come I find I am in a calm silence Perhaps the one before the storm? Who knows? but I know the words will not come Perhaps something inside me is simply broken? Perhaps I have just understood And am resigned to what will be Since I cannot make you see and the words will not come Perhaps its just that things are so clear That I will always hold you dear Perhaps just that its so obvious That you now seem oblivious that my words would be wasted anyway And there is little that I

Built to Last

Is anything built to last? To stand the tests of time? Proud, up standing and pompous Relieved perhaps, to be still there Or is that just a silly question to ask? The wind and the rain will wash away The sands rise and drown me slowly away The me inside – that lonely voice Calling through an eternity Of change, turmoil and pain Seeking love, a flickering flame A point of fire, with some sort of desire To be free again Be still, be still and listen Time ticks slowly by The illusion of movement Tricks us like a faithless lover Who ran to the arms of another Each moment is an eternal now In in a sense, it lasts and lasts The wounded King awaits The Lady of the

Fool

I have a numbing headache It’s not really painful But sits just on the edge of perception Clouding my thoughts Something weighs heavily on me today Following me like a foul smell Or that stale taste From yesterday’s unwanted cigarette Stubbed out half-smoked In the disgust of will Bent, twisted, broken in this situation I am in Surrounded by comfort All those things Yet I am alone and wallowing in loneliness I walk the street Idly people watching Surrounded by people and abandoned by friends Life is lonely If I could only Be somewhere else at this moment in time On a beach Swimming in the Sea Anything to put a gap between Him and Me Disconnected Momentarily misdirected Wallowing around in an Ocean of bitterness Drinking the cup Swallowed
