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

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

The advocate

The voice for the one who cannot speak

The voice for the one who cannot see

The voice for the one who cannot read

The champion of the one who has no strength

But who holds the advocate up when his voice trembles

When his hands shake before he makes that call

The call to change it all

When he speaks for another’s soul

Once again I wear that hat

The advocates hat is heavy with thoughts

Of lives that will change when the morrow comes

And the muted will have a voice once more

Here have my voice, my strength and words

They are yours to change and do with what you will

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

Sleep evades her

Is near but shaded

By thoughts and wonderings

Amongst shrubs and flowerings

Questions flowing

And that she knows

The answers troubling

As the worlds heartbeat

rumbling

Crumbling

cracks widening

Time moves too fast

Sun,s shadows cast

Moving 2 inches past

Yet another day passed

And no magic was had

No yellow road to follow

And yet she continues to

Make her own paths

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

‘Tis quiet all about

Yet you hide with no words to shout

Is it the quiet before a storm

There are so many waiting for words to adore

Do I plan for more travels adventures to see

The great family that rules music you see

There are questions accusations and lies to hear

But when you’re ready I guess, you’ll say no fear

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

This is how the story goes

A hint a wink a word a prose

A flutter a shudder of butterfly wings

Shaking and nervous the bells they ring

Take a deep breath in 7 out 11

Lips turn upwards smile to the heavens

A golden thread weaves a web

Of home and comfort unleavened bread

Aroma drifts amongst the mist

To nostrils flared and flesh bared

In Northern lands and small hands

Creating beauty wherever you stand

Those dark shades and green blades

Of flowers growth as Spring bloats

And brings you beauty as you gloat

As my tears akerchief soaks

And depths of black succumbs my breath

This reality hurts I long for death
