First he loved me

Showed me heaven

Took me to the moon

Then he left me

Dropped so quickly

Bursting my balloon

I was angry

Wanted nothing

Tried to walk away

He insisted

Wanted friendship

What else could I say

Had a coffee

Both were civil

Talked of nothing much

Then the nothing

Endless silence

Fallen out of touch



You echo still

Familiar and yet not

Expected and yet not

Not yet

Not yet familiar

Still unexpected

You, still and yet not

Somewhat Queer

Happy when you’re here

Good to have a friend

Feeling somewhat queer

Which will never mend

Drink or maybe two

Propping up the bar

Fun I have with you

Near and yet so far

You cannot be mine

Love but not like that

Now is never time

Leaves my ego flat

Straight the narrow path

Free of any kink

Not my other half

Hearts are not in sync

Shooting Star

Too wild to be for ever so the days were precious few

Unwise decisions taken always knowing what we do

So high you had me flying like two eagles we would soar

In everything success and then we wanted nothing more

The day it dawned when suddenly I wanted to be down

My Peter Pan confused because my feet were on the ground

The neverland forever’s not the place I want to be

So if you want to fly you must continue without me

Reality sobriety my heady days are done

The rush of the roulette but now I’m putting down the gun

I love you hate you want you hope you’re never coming back

For everything you take is just to hide the things you lack

So chase the rainbow dance with stars and reach for greater highs

And down here on the Earth I see you flying through the skies


If you could just stay still

Then I could try to give you all the love and care you need

A minute nothing more

I’ll take a final look at you before you take your leave

For now your moving on

Some new adventure on the seven seas that must be tried

I stay behind again

While you going out and getting high I’m left to dry

Why don’t you find some peace

The newest waves will come and go without you taking part

Just hold me really close

And take a minute listen to the siren in my heart

But I will set you free

For you were born explorer and you choose to sail alone

But sometimes think of me

The one who only ever wanted you to be my home

But you can ebb and flow

For I will always wait for you and that’s the part I play

The anchor of your life

Without me waiting here you wouldn’t know you that you’re away

…to be

Try to be more social
Mix with different friends
You should just get out more
Know how this one ends

People can be complex
Harsh and unrefined
So my usual reflex
Meetings strictly timed

You can have an hour
You, a little more
Keep you a distance
Tally up the score

Everyday I must see
One or sometimes two
Then I can get on with
What I like to do

People make me tired
Like to be alone
When your time's expired
I will wander home

Life is on the spectrum
Socialising's fraught
With a few controls though
Life is as it ought…

Not Everyday

Every day he's walking on his own
Every day he's always by himself
Every day he's stepping out from home
Every day he's not yet on the shelf
Every day he's smiling as he walks
Every day he's looking all about
Every day he's silent never talks
Every day he's happy to be out
If one day he didn't reappear
If one day he didn't smile at you
If one day you'll wish he was still here
Let this be the day for something new
Everyday you're walking by his side
Every day a conversation new
Every day your routines coincide
Every day's less lonely when there's two
