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

Thank you

Who would’ve thought

While out and sought

A sign to save me

A sign of life

Under a farmer’s wide brim

There you were resting

Your tired blue eyes

Hair of shaggy grey

Shirt checkered and frayed

A slight wink and smile

Turned up corners

Only thoughts are sly

I get it. I know

You’re always around

Quicker than a ninja

You were out of here

But all my illusions

Love and contusions

Stirring up the next big thing

To focus on and sing

Seeking Out the truth

Be aware the devils advocate

Or she dwells amongst the activists

And copy cats will prove

Their unwavering trouvé

Of knowledge of you

See I told you blue

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

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

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
