“Evermore” “Quoth the Kookaburra

He spoke to me in gentle tones
that there are better things to think.

Than mulling over ancient bones,
shall we then find something anew?

To talk till evening stars emerge.
Where worlds collide and truths are heard
in rooms closed from our busy world
let’s talk of things that hide within.

I fear the dawn the sinking sun
I’m lost, we can’t to all give fun
yet they are here with us to learn.
Each step a path to peace we yearn

He spoke of the wild look in my eyes
how I had failed to realise
all loved me as we journeyed on
this place is where we all belong.

He laughed at me as off he flew
You silly man why can’t you see
Life’s not to be taken seriously
Get a grip, let yourself be

It split my world into segments my dear
Something drained my thoughts not clear
The red mist gave me power beyond my years
I saw you shrink back away from me in fear.

There frothing at my lips were words of hate
Why did you try to leave me at the gate
You knew I could not be left so alone
I destroyed all things that you called home.

Come back to me I am sorry I didn’ mean to
Hurt that body of yours that is always true
Nor the times we spent talking and touching
Only this ache and panic keeps on crushing

I saw your reflection in the mirror today
It was before you left and went away
Please come back to me now I beg you
That 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 wont happento me again
I am gone from you Auf wiedersen. 

Our lady dressed in flowing Emerald green
Tears stream at your peoples troubles as does the rain
In rivulets that sometimes catch the sunshine.
Yet your feet are bleeding the blood of ages

It will take many miricles to mend this beautiful land,
This is your home, given by theAngels of past times.
A drop of green Angel dust in the Ocean seen
Can we start again to make this jewel shine.

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..

 

Many Years

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

Words and Reason

Words and Reason

 

Bin thinking about it, and if it’s gonna be new,

where feet and inches are rendered true,

and chains adorn a turf of green,

where bowling at stumps is often seen,

 

and horses on a race track new,

run furlongs in the red white and blue.

You can submit my name to this mocking crowd,

where my clack if paid will be so loud

 

as truthful verse as the old Bard once said

“Anne Hathaway should be put to bed”

This was muttered away from poetic ears

As Bacon was favourite for many years

 

That wasn’t breakfast food I hear you say

It is discussed and spoken of until this day

But never worry, never fear, I bring you good cheer.

Yenti will submit to your workshop when it’s there.

 

I feel a testy piece just floating there

 

I wanted a gazunder as t’other got broke

So down to the town to buy one bespoke

Saw a workshop that said “Good Po workshop”

Some letters were missing thought I would stop

thought that’s good for me I might have misunderstood

But all the man in there could do

Was throw verses at me that didn’t seem true

 

He said this is where you write things down

I said don’t be such a bloody clown

Who reads words now that are correct and true

He said “man Iv’e had that feeling, I know it’s new

But here we try to write proper and retain the old

Now I will tell you why none of your stuff is sold

 

I said man get one of your kids with a funny phone

They’ll teach you the new words, you need to know

Forget forsooth and lengthy crap, try abbreviations, stupid sap

He then cried and fell on the floor, 2 la8 4 me 2 tell him more.

Didn’t get my Potty

Feeling New Things

Feeling New Things

I feel the cold of you
As if you were frost
Gathering on windows pane
Sharpened claws creep

My shiver started low
Ran my now tangled nerves
Reaching each tip fingers and toes
Dipping deep into my heart

I shuddered in acceptance
all I could do was squeak
I did not welcome your touch
that my cursed soul could feel

Your name forgotten
now you embrace me.
I will not let you in,
Though I know you’ll win

You stilled my thoughts,
then my heartbeat too,
then I became quiet so still.
You could do me no more ill.

I had feelings of sleep, so deep,
that death now my secret keeps.
I fear you no more,
I have fled to places new

I should have stayed at home,
this was no place to roam,
out in the evening’s storm,
I thought I would keep warm.

Killers Party

Killers Party

I shall attend your party
You just will not see me
A candle will flicker sickly
A shiver will touch your soul
As I attend to my ways

Make sure you are careful
In things you say or do
I will grab your soul
As only one thought is so
I will not tell you again

I have homed onto your chat
With talons sharpened
Blood lust honed for kill
Yet will have a special bag
For those souls that are ill

Bloodlust will slip into your world
There’s no need to be fearful
Joining me will be a thrill
A darkness lite with screams
Fear held in bloody dreams

Come to me my friends
Give of your all, you know the end
I will be the king of your ways
First I will feed off you
For many yummy bloodlust days

This is not a new craze
I have been around for many a year
Waiting in shadows of your fear
I will feed when it is time
Midnight means that you are Mine
