6000 Miles To Texas

6000 miles It’s a long way to fly Soaring so high 6000 miles It was a long jump then Knowing when The Atlantic tore us apart Me and my new start The three of you stayed Don’t see you often I’m afraid Texas seems so far Cannot get there in my car Trans Atlantic Getting frantic So close and yet so far The grand ta ta 6000 miles Endless smiles Written in ink Not in the pink But never mind In my heart there is no distance at all No miles to travel No short inconvenient phone call No technology to baffle See you there See you soon See you on the dark side of the Moon.

Alone

I am alone Sitting with my memories Scenes of life pass me by A tear wells in my eye It is just me Talking to me No one cares Distinct lack of interest No one gives a shit So here I sit Alone Talking to myself Worried about my mental health I am the performer The audience too I clap in tune to the song That I am singing Cos no one else cares Its just me Alone Me

Celebrity

I will tell you this In a moment of honesty I would love to be your celebrity Come on you papparazzi You can follow me Snap your snaps and invade my privacy Follow me around in your idiocy I want to be wanted I want to be liked Most of all I want that life Married to a famous wife I’ll sign my autograph Give it on a photograph I wanna be a star I wanna go far I’ll happily be your celebrity Smile with insincerity Give my star studded opinion I want to be in the in crowd Cool, I am ice Even if I’m not so nice Love me Follow me Scream and holler Its no bother Want to be your celebrity Want you to follow me Wouldn’t

I Am A Stage

The light shines in my face The rock n roll is loud here Guitar screams and bass thunders Reverberating in my head Stereo composition drives The beat is sensual and strong This is my own made up song Making it up as I go along There are no rules Cos’ rules are for Fools There are no requirements Except to entertain The song in my head Doesn’t actually exist And yet that song rocks I am a stage – a venue I am all the rage – rocking too A driving beat moves me It is the engine of my life Pumping, thumping along It’s the heart that drives this song Making it up as I go along I can’t do anything wrong Life throbs and pulses Mind over matter

Death on the Beach

Sunlight shimmers on churning waters Sand glitters like gold dust rolling with the waves An azure sky, brilliant colors brightened There is a surreal element to this surf Tumbling over, erosive currents pull Unreal, it seems to be so unreal Like a waking lucid dream Dreamt by this dreamer Experienced in this place A moment of time trapped In my memory forever So that when I endeavor To recall It’s there Yet again Like an aging photo In a photo album Faded at the edges Handled too many times Deeply etched lines On paper and my face As the years have passed by Faster, ever faster To that ultimate destination Without silly recrimination Giving in to the tidal pull Sand gold swirling around me Sunlight tuning blue Dragged away by

No One Will Remember

And when we are gone It will be like we didn’t exist All the trials, tribulations All the joy, the jubilation A life of toil and achievement Forgotten and gone No one will remember deeds No one will know the impact Written only in the dust of death After that final breath

The Dead

Somewhere there is a place The dead must go Once here, but now residing Somewhere there Cut off and isolated from the living It used to be called Hades A shadow land full of shadow people And when the sun shines They shimmer like rising heat The dead are fast on their feet Fleet of foot and silent too A higher frequency of life Is that what death truly is? All around us they play Thoughts trapped in the ether And when the light is just right We may gain a glimpse or two A flickering shadow plays Radiating under Sun rays The faint echo of laughter Or a hint of foot steps on ice A face stares back in the mirror A voice speaking starkly From within incandescent static

I am a Crowded Room

Turn the page and let it go Always something else to know Digging deep into that psychosis Pain is just another emotion Hidden behind your neurosis I talk to myself you know Deep conversations everyday A sure sign of that madness That drives me deeper in I am full of strange characters A world is inside my head Which one am I these days? I am a crowded room I am a party in a smoky room The more I delve the more I see The clearer is my sense of me It’s complicated Thoughts assimilated Manifesting instead Reaching in to reach out Finding God is in me Divinity flows Where ever thought goes Energy directed With thoughtful intent

Inside is the Outside

Thirty-years counting down If I knew the moment If I could only see That wouldn’t set me free Moments in time Two-dimensional line Eternity viewed through glasses Instants turn out to be flashes Of inspiration No space nor time Inside is the outside Mind is all there really is And everything we do Everything we see Are insignificant moments Computerised torments For this stream In this life-long dream

Young Fool

It’s so funny how That now when I look back It’s with different eyes It’s so funny how That with my 20:20 retro vision My life becomes a set of lies   Did I let my life pass me by? Was fear of failure fear enough And so no matter how I say goodbye I know I didn’t give my best stuff   What could have, should have been Simply rejected for normality Now I look back to life as a teen It’s with an increasing sense of finality   It’s so funny how Now I really think about it Dream, imagine and drool It’s so funny how Now I am able to act upon it It seems as if I was just a young fool       I
