When The Time is Right….

Another new song. This one is multi-layered and complex… When the time is right I’ll take you in my arms all the night And we’ll make love ’til the dawn comes I’ll hold you tight All through the night I’ll hold you tight All through the night Life is short So we must live life to the fullest Life is quick So fast, that its gone before we know it When the time is right I’ll take you places all around the globe And we’ll dance until the dawn comes I’ll hold you tight All through the night I’ll hold you tight All through the night Life is short So we must live life to the fullest Life is quick So fast, that its gone before we know it And

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

Wasted Energy

I have written poems and blogs about this and yet, sometimes you have to be reminded. There is a flow to life – some call it fate, perhaps others karma – it takes you were you need to go, to the people you must meet and to the lessons you must learn. If we just went with the flow all would be well. Its the children’s rhyme that always reminds me of this – Row, row, row your boat Gently down the stream, Merrily merrily, merrily, merrily Life is but a dream The problem is that sometimes we get stuck on a rock or we see something that makes us want to row against the stream. So we beat like mad. We lose sight of where life is taking us.

Life

This track started life (!) as a very melodic riff that I had been playing with for years. I overlaid a picked guitar sound and a slow bass line to get the sound I wanted. I asked my daughter Deni to add her voice to the backing vocals which is her and I going ‘oooo’. She had fun doing that and her voice adds sweetness to the song in my opinion. As usual, the last thing was to record the vocals and write the lyrics. Also as usual, the lyrics simply fell out as I listened to the track… Don’t despair Don’t give up It’s all we have And this is our life Life is passing me by But it’s too soon to say goodbye So much to do yet

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

Infinity

Sometimes You just need to laugh Life Irony It’s a just a cold bath You think you are in control You think it’s all about you But fate says, hey Wake up! It’s not about you But me You see I am you reflected Projected Onto a silver screen You wanna laugh? You wanna scream? Don’t – it’s just a silly dream The things you do The things you say Irrelevant anyway Just another way For Fate to have her evil way Laugh Cry It’s all the same to me I am, your are, you see? We are one and in a dream Life Death The coldness of reality Brutality Expressed One way or another You will discover It’s just lame No blame All the same A song to infinity

Magical Books

For anyone interested in magic, I want to outline the three books that I have written or co-written on the topic and why you might consider reading them. If you have always had a passing interest in magic, alchemy and the occult in general then you might want to look at my very first book – Inner Journeys: Explorations of the Soul published in 2006 by Thoth. It is available in paperback and Kindle formats. The book is autobiographical in that I try to paint a picture of my childhood and background in which poltergeist and ghosts caused me all sorts of issues. As I grew up, I developed an interest in the occult but other then reading avidly I did nothing about it until about 15-years ago when I

The Mystical Hexagram – 2nd Edition

This weekend, the paperback and kindle versions of The Mystical Hexagram – 2nd Edition became available. The book is a joint project with prolific author Sue Vincent, who incidentally designed the beautiful new cover. An additional chapter is contained in the book along with some tidying up and corrections. Overall, I am very pleased with the new version. The book originates as a follow up to Inner Journeys – my first book that outlines how I found the Servants of The Light School, went through its 5-year course and emerged a different person complete with an inner contact I came to know as Asteroth. For several years, I continued to meditate and guided by that inner contact, discovered that the hexagram is a key to unlocking the potential of may

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’

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
