It splits my world into segments my dear
Something drained my thoughts, it’s unclear
The red mist gave me power beyond my year
I saw you shrink away from me in a frigid fear.
There frothing at my lips were words of hate
Why are you try to leave me please, please, wait
You know I cannot be left to myself all alone
Sorry I destroyed all things that you called home.
Come back to me, I am calm, I didn’ mean to
Hurting that body of yours, I know it’s true
What of the times we spent talking, and touching,
Now this ache and panic just keeps crushing
I saw your reflection in the mirror today,
It was before you started to walk away.
Please come back to me now I beg of you!
I promise, I will never again let my temper through.
“Your promises hold no truck with me,
You have always been a beater and bully
To say that it won’t happen to me again
I am gone from you, Auf Wiedersehen”
Did I say that??

My God, how I have tried
for years now with you to abide
in this world of poetry streams
Where young and old talk of their dreams
Friends come and go
some are so tormented you know
and we just add to their woes
we read and write, to and for them just so
It is so hard I hear your whine
to believe in these things, all the time
I write as much as I can with this hand
is it beneath this world where I stand?
I write for fun so why can’t you
a serious pen never writes true
the blotches that spoil your straight lines
are they a product of a false mind?
Sing to me in verses strong
Write any form, I’ll play along.
To you I will sing your praise
but in truth you will know I am wrong
Damn it I grump, so much is on my plate
my appetite has gone, too much too late.
Forgive me as I will be better one day
Should I return and pass your way..

I have learnt a little late in life.
These things could be so different,
from the conception of my feelings,
that I have held for many years
Why did life wait to show me?
What’s the reason for this waste?
I stood swaying at its power.
All it took was a simple glance.
I was lost there, I could have cried.
That perfect peace you showed.
Across the room, it found me there
a think, a glow, it held my mind
I bathed in its entirety with love.
There falling away with my senses
Adrift in the oceans of the world
I could only feel and surrender.
I was so touched by its presence.
It curled catching my spirit.
Binding my thoughts for all time
a subtle wave that held a life.
I gave in and let it flow to me.
There in a flash it glowed eternally.
Forgive me for moving away
It is that which I hold to this day.
There are no words of mine.
That can tell others of my find.
They would laugh if I told them.
Yet those feelings sustain me.
Daft you will say how could you?
Easy is my retort, inside a thought.
That finds me here, alone but not true,
if I think, then there is always you.

I sat on the fence too long
My ass was cut like a thong
I thought of Vlad the impaler
How hard it would be to stay there
Perched on a pointed stick
Dress left or right is the trick
Or is this just far too sick
