Owe

You owe me nothing

Just as I owe nought

But it somehow feels

Like you’ve been bought

Is this real

What I sought

Or just a game

Of crosses and noughts

‘Twas fun

Drove to the sun

But where we landed

Rain and wind

Had pelted

Magic lost

Greed lustre has cost

The earth to find

No more sparks a bind

Light is fake

Nothing’s left to stake

Was a blast knowing

Your journey was over

Let us down gently

Good folks and gentry

It’s all now staged

There’s no rage

Just sadness left

Will cry tomorrow

As it will be the last

Nothing left to chance

At the devils section

Amongst the mix

You’ll find sunshine shades

Don’t forget to blow kisses and wave

Let me know

The care factor won’t show

Is buried in the snow

Deep into the crevices

Of your arteries I’ll flow

And charge you again in 10 years or so

A shell now

Of what I was once

a Joie de vivre

Happy innocent and gay

Clinging to the edge

Where is the hope

The wonder of life all but gone

Am sitting watching

robins flapping

Motor bikes rattling by

People walking and talking

What more can there be

Sirens are sounding out their distress calls

Fix up other’s mess

Feet aching

Head is breaking

Heart is broken

There was never a notion

Of things to come

Live apart but pray onto others

For Love to conquer all

What more you say

Say yes and give it all up

So we can be together

Under the stars and ether

Creating all the heat that’s needed

After that spark had seeded

The initial flame

No ones to blame

In the end

They are all the same

Dim the light

For I can’t sleep

Your presence is near

Hard to breathe

The light is grey

A shade of pearl

And oyster sensations

Light and iridescent

Craving some darkness

Away from your harkens

And larrikins

And loudness of white noise

We’re little toys

For you to play with

Pull our strings

Promise of things

Will be better

I believed you

White knight

But I prefer the shade of blue

Not just a hue

Is it you

Dim the light let’s see your truth

I lit a candle

And blew it out for you

You’re not here anymore

To share in my pain

Thoughts and feelings

Laughter too

Oh how I wish

I wish you were here

You’re light is gone

That’s now clear

So once in a while

When down and blue

Remember you on birthdays

And struggles too

So I light a candle

And see your light come through

I miss you papa

A cardboard in hand

Dirty fingernails

I nearly tripped over you

With my coffee in a mug

Cherry ripe in a bag

Eyes locked a smile and nod ensued

I smiled back apologised

Shit what can I do

Tears welled up

I walked back to my car

A lump in my throat grew

Grabbed my card

Walked into shop

Told them to take the amount

Offer him the menu

Choose what he wants

Hot cold drinks food doesn’t matter

You choose for he they say you see

Don’t give him the choice of food

Angrily I said let him feel free

For a moment you stupid fool

We’re all in chains

This thing called life

Working to live and breathe

Whilst others fall quick

On drugs or sick

The man plays us like fiddles

He’s but just one

Down on his luck

I pray tonight he keeps warm

Dark clouds ahead

Concrete floor his bed

Thunder and lightening

A sudden storm

Early starts

Fizzled out before the day begins

Effervescent in body

Yet mind is far and longing

For the way to be shown

Someone take the reigns please

And get rid of this unease

Stop the tease

So close yet miles

From your smiles

Drip feeding the thoughts and riddles

As you fiddle with words

How absurd

Let them flow

Roll forth

No thought

Ah daylight breaks

Return back to reality

Drink that coffee

Feel the bubbles begin once more

Alert and a moron no more

The cord on the train

Is out of reach

The button on the poles

All taped up

The vision of life

Passes by at a speed

Visions of blur and streaks

I awake to news of joy

He’s on the mend

Will see you again

Until then friend

Be well

but never tell

Of the magic on that swell

As the time flew

When will the train stop

You conductor of life

And colour blue

Older bolder

Wiser Colder

That shade of blue

Envelopes you

Triggers you have

Red green hues

Salted words

Sugary thoughts

Peppered and marred

Emotionally scarred

Put on hold

The family charred

He pushed boundaries

A young girl she is

As old as the hills

He bedded she

The truth was revealed

With wide eyed intentions

The young man hid well

The young girl’s discretions

Unfortunate for all

The lie then appeared

A red rose presented

What does this all mean

The sniggers the whispers

The voices and slippers

As glass is fragile

So is the mistress

Smile

Curled up lips

Eyes that twinkle

Toothy smile

Glossy like tiles

Feel the feels

Lemon peels

Bask in your warmth

And moody tunes

Wine and cheese

Close and pleased

My heart seized

The smile lingers

Just as your finger

Caresses lips

Upturned twist

I touch your wrist

Eyes that meet

Take a seat

Enfold and reap

The rewards of patience

Ships that sail

Train left the station

I remember now

Your furrowed brow

Blonde hair and tossled

After your show

Before midnight

A kiss to know

You’re always there

In the shadows

On hills and meadows

We’ll make love under the moon

The stars will seize our passion within

Until then a smile will do

And yes I love you blue

Numb

Blown away

Her magic

Here to stay

Her light

Dimmed today

Her soul

Renewed and played

Out a journey

Of one so blessed

Yet now she rests

Tired but not finished

Let her love life and journey

On this ungodly world

Be a lesson to mere mortals

Your time is short

Love and light

Her words not mine

Rest In Peace now

For Olivia Newton John
