Talk, Talk

Talk, talk A talking head A constant stream Of incessant chatter Talk, talk Words in my head Is anyone listening Does it really matter? Aren’t we all talking to ourselves? A running commentary on our lives Describing that reality Emphasizing finality Gibbering our thoughts aloud Streaming podcasts in our head Writing, filming or recording The words we just said Talk, talk The walking dead It’s a constant dream That doesn’t matter Talk, talk Words that I have read Is anyone listening? Or am I already dead? likeheartlaughterwowsadangry0

All Sixes and Sevens

Six strings Strumming along Six stars In this song Six days to work hard And one to rest Six metals to reduce To the best A sixth sense Or six of the best Perfection Add one for Completion Six points to make Six cakes to bake Six maids a dancing Around a point Six gates to open Six planets around A golden Sun This song is nearly done Seventh heaven Seven seals Seven balanced Gently heals Six Seven On our way To that place heaven likeheartlaughterwowsadangry0

Theology of Hate

I can’t help looking at what is going on in the name of religion around the world and wonder why as a species we never learn. I think perhaps that is expressed in these few lines penned today….and trust me, I have in mind all organized religions at one time or another or in some place or another…. The sky is falling The end of the world is nigh Follow me or you will die Hell’s fires are waiting And unless you follow me You’ll surely burn eternally What I want to know Is what makes you my judge and jury? A pious fanatical pervert What I want to know Is how you can be so incredibly arrogant? So bloody intransigent I see nothing in your actions That reveals the

Songs from Another Era

I started writing poetry or more accurately perhaps lyrics, at the age of about 12. At that time, I had just received my first acoustic guitar for Christmas and had already formed a ‘band’ with Andy Wells, my next door neighbour. Andy has, I think, played around bands ever since in the USA where he now lives and owns a huge collection of guitars. We would sit in our front rooms strumming the odd malformed chord and dreaming in the way only adolescents can dream. Of course, the early 70’s really was a great time for this with wave after wave of new bands coming through and cranking out three chord singles by the bucket load. I particularly loved T.Rex I recall and fancied myself as another Marc Bolan. In

Religions

Given some of the news headlines I see about ISIS (not the Goddess I hasten to add) and their actions which are utterly evil and satanic to the equally despotic and idiotic satanic christian right that wants to deny everyone everything, I dug this poem up for today. It is from my book Astral Messages and it says exactly what I want to say. There are too many MEN who think they speak for God but in reality they speak for THEMSELVES. To me, religion is the system that allows men to create a God in their own image so that they may control others and impose their own will upon them. In the name of religion, they persecute all who disagree as well as women, gays, and minorities. Religion

Lazarus

Memories fade as the years gently pass The urgency of attraction has gone too Wished fond goodbye as the years flew But Lazarus sings still from time to time Our bond slowly strengthens bit by bit Shared experiences and the pass of time Takes care of that my dear partner in crime As our Lazarus makes his soulful reappearance Who would have ever have given us a chance at all The unlikely impossibleness of such a meeting Our differences should have made our time fleeting But beautiful Lazarus was our siren song Kept us together all along. likeheartlaughterwowsadangry0

Conforming to Conformity

Patterns in thinking Growing up like I did Gave me food for thought A brainwashed kid? Taught to see your world The way you all did Adopting your reality from the Bottom of the pyramid And if I did break free Ah, God forbid Would you persecute me Until I am rid Of all those original thoughts? Simply splendid My mind under lock and key Forever hid. likeheartlaughterwowsadangry0

Big Man

Clouds collide The Big Man Upstairs is moving again Packing his bags And stomping his feet Thunder rolls across the land Rain falls in sheer sheets Hanging heavy Pregnant steam Electricity in motion Sparking an arc Lightening issues forth Flashing an angry stab Vicious energetic force The Big Man is angry In fury, he spits The elements Fire and water Sound and fury Thundering flashes Of Godlike rage The fire of His anger Soon subsides Water falls more gently Washes away the ire And soon peace returns Radiant warmth in azure sky Free of all concerns likeheartlaughterwowsadangry0

Blackfield and Moon Whispers

I have enjoyed the music of Steven wilson (Porcupine Tree) for many years now and have all four albums from Blackfield, a project in which Steven wilson partnered with Aviv Geffen to create some of the most melodic and listenable music I heave ever heard. Tunes like Pain and Where is my love? have haunted me for years. Recently, however, I got a hold of Blackfield II and this is almost heaven. The songs 1000 People and The End of the World are incredible and send me to aural heaven immediately. About 3 months ago I started listening to this record over and over again finding that each time I did I had to write. 1000 People in particular seems to make my creative juices spurt in vast quantities and

Brno, Czech Republic, May 17th, 2014. Moon whispers, a new collection of 30 poems from Dr. G. Michael Vasey, is released and is now available on Amazon and other book sites in paperback and Kindle formats.
