The play

You say

Balls in my court

Or so I thought

Play the King Queen and Jack

Lay those cards down

Tip your hat

Messages missed

Air you’ve kissed

Words you wrote

Played and spoke

30 days

You’ve sung I’ve prayed

Almost near your guitar dropped

And locked

Last shows

And then it goes

All away

Say goodbyes but don’t think

The boats gonna sink

It’s the start of something

Palm lines and rings

Removed to lay your hat

And moods

With good intentions

Then no more mentions

Of how much longer

You’re no stronger

Than the rock above the glass

It will shatter

But that won’t matter

As finally you’ll be near


The crow

She is black sleek and shiny

Her eyes are black beady and tiny

Yet all her words ring true ever so blue

Fast and furious flapping her wings and so she strings

All those that admire although are tired

Listen and smile whilst file away all for another day

So now I’ll pray she will heal and peel

The truth behind the manic squawk and plunging like a hawk

Uh oh here we go

Another trip

Down that road

Of birds that sing

And bells that ring

Hearts a flutter

Words to stutter

Stranger tunes

On vibes renewed

Catches and sniffs

Guitar riffs

That crooked smile

Words that rhyme

Eyes that spark

Singing larks

Uh oh here we go

Midnight chats

Screaming cats

Hair on end

Hearts that blend

No I won’t

Allow the rope

To tie it’s knot

Across my heart

Been there before

What a laugh

So heed my thoughts

No stories bought

This thing called love

This singing Dove

There’s only one

He’s number one

When I’m confused

He is my Muse

Got it

Get it

Over it

See it

Believe it

Question it

Narrate it

Make it

Feel it

Don’t drop it

Hold it

Embrace it

Face it







Catching on…

Bowler hat

Of grey

A resting smile on your face

As you walked by with a scruffy dog

Ever so busy sniffing the earth

Dark shades on but I caught your stare

Do I dare


I’ll just trace the lines on your skin

In the air

As I breathe the sun in

A deep exhale then my fingers reach

Your sun kissed lips

Do smile when they reach the cleft of your chin

The canvas almost filled with my

Fingers recreating your face

There it is done

Your face in the air

The pull

The pull

From me to you

The strain

Amongst the pain

The hurt

The hole in shirt

The pain

Has left me lame

The spark

The cries of a lark


Of long lost forages

The ties

Your chains and lies


And ancient titans


Festival happenings


Now the true test


Paid the penance


Rested on a shelf

My turn

No more Yearns


Now we shall see


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
