Words

I stumbled over words and grazed my heart
I thought I saw the truth within a rhyme
But writers can’t trusted for their art
Is just to sweeten cheap and hackneyed line
Comparison to summer’s day is trite
And music often feeds the love we lost
I think that love requires a second sight
And rides that fall are rarely worth the cost
Remember love’s a verb a doing word
It’s not a state that we recover from
A writer’s actions should seen not heard
And love is not three minutes in a song
Unbreak my heart for it is carved in wood
If words are all you have then you’re no good

The Journeyman

A wander through the backwater that day
A fly was hooked and baited on the line
The listener who had so much to say
And talked as if they owned the whole of time
Seduction of the mind a subtle art
The conversation lingered in the air
The mind is often route to find the heart
The thoughts are planted left to blossom there
The ripples of the mind that mark depart
For backwaters are places few would choose
The culmination so close after start
But what is gained we never truly lose
A chance encounter brief and bitter sweet
A journeyman will leave after the meet 

Jekyll And Hyde

I have a darkness that I try to hide
A facet of my psyche hard and cold
And when you feel my angry bitter side
You’ll see emotion difficult to hold
I want perfection served upon a plate
My expectation never really met
And disappointment’s not a happy state
My life is bitter tainted with regret
And yet you say that I’m a man of good
And in your eyes I am reflected clear
I’ve strived to be as perfect as I could
Your estimation something I hold dear
But knowing I am Jeckyll and I’m Hyde
Is conflict I have raging deep inside

Unkind Thought

Apology from me to Universe
For unkind thought perpetuates the hate
So I will place an idea into verse
About a different world we could create
I think that love should motivate the earth
And we must find a different way to be
If every human being knows their worth
We could then live with love and harmony
This love it would replenish mind and soul
And when it overflows there’s more to share
If happiness was everybody’s goal
Together we’d create a haven where
The gentlest revolution would bring peace
For unkind thought won’t make the fighting cease
