The way it goes

Forever
is but a blink of the eye
Together
until the day we die
You’ll never
forget these words we shared
Best ever
until the next best serves

You may think I’m a cynical fool
You don’t hear my dithyrambic drool
In the end, all my memories fade away
At my door, another stranger comes to stay

Yes, that’s the way it goes
Yes, that’s the way I chose

We may dream that we’re bound to find the one
We may recognize signs in each and everyone
Glance around and you’re sure to catch her eye
Dither long and she’s poised to pass you by

No, that’s not superstition
It’s just my own admission

the new lovers

you sigh,
I smile,
what you can’t see doesn’t exist,
all outside is an undercurrent of disturbance,
we shall not let it invade our lascivious hinterland..

The eternal mariner

images
they say no man is an island, hence I navigate a simple vessel, observe the rhythm of the sea, the cadence of the tide and the circadian philosophy of the natural order.. there have been doldrums as there have been friendly natives offering respite within their safe havens.. yet still I sail on carrying my cargo of desiderata safely stowed below..

Lupercalia

lupercalia

Her name was Lupercalia
she was our valentine of sorts
airbrushed from history by an ancient sensor
yet her kiss defies the ages
and the blood red mystique of the modern sages

fast forward

Play

I see your beacon shining from the highest peak

beckoning me

still I stand at my window imprisoned by shackles of my own decree

fast forward

into light and into space 

one by one these features dim

sleep is a suffocation drug in my veins

fast forward

and don’t even hear the soles of your boots upon the highway

and don’t glance backwards at what you’re afraid of

there’s no time but the present being deleted

fast forward

some curious empathy

these fertile plains

long to be impregnated by the silent stream

and stop

Burning Blues

I wanna be your hero

rescue you from burning planes

Yes, I’m gonna be your hero

rescue you from burning planes

I smell some fuel leaking honey

this pilot stay grounded today

 

I wanna be your baby

sing it to you sweet and proud

Yeah, I wanna be your baby

sing it to you sweet and proud

but my voice is grim and rusty

so this concert ain’t allowed

 

I wanna be your daddy

sweep you up into my arms

Yeah I wanna be your daddy

sweep you up into my arms

but I think I’ll go on dreaming

dreaming never do no harm

 

My house it caught on fire

took a week to put it out

yeah my house it caught on fire

took a whole week to go out

I’m a burning in the cellar

while my heart say there’s a drought

Do you know her?

Fate winks her lusty eyelid and turns

she leaves you blistered with burns

hush she beckons

be patient until the rains come

 

Envy pulls you close to her cheek

“Look” she rasps, “I could be yours this week”

wait she implores

wait for evermore

 

Hope calls you back the next day

your voice is tinged with dismay

as you drop the receiver

such a fool to believe her

 

Love touches your elbow in the street

her strength could knock you off your feet

but you don’t recognise her

without make-up
