Achilles

The never being hurt was what was hurting

Protection that became Achilles’ heel

The pain of not allowing to believe in

Reality is something we can feel

And so this time I know that I am falling

But hope that you are there and so I drop

I listen and I think I hear you calling

Not knowing if this love is start or stop

I’m on the line and I am not withdrawing

What’s in my heart I’ll share with you today

One smile and like the lark my spirit’s soaring

I’ll say three little words and come what may

I love you and I want to start the journey

And if you feel the same let’s share the ride

Let’s bid farewell to careful and to lonely

Together hand in hand and side by side

And maybe this will be love everlasting

Or we might sink before we learn to swim

Together in this net that we are casting

To drown unless our love can pull us in

But

Take

But it is given.

Have

But it is shared.

Here

But you were driven.

Safe

But you were scared.

Held

But only freely.

Love

But do not bind.

Leave

But don’t forget me.

Gone

But on my mind.

Sobering Thoughts

With you I could eradicate myself

So lost in space as if there were no ground

My self esteem was taken quite by stealth

Beneath my nose no trace was ever found

With you I was in shadow from the sun

Protection kept sobriety at bay

I learnt that I was nothing, you’re the one

Sedating me with fix to fill the day

Without remembered I can function well

Create a life and carve myself a place

A man who had descended beyond hell

Enjoys the sun kissed freedom on his face

Eradication failed and I returned

Addiction can be conquered: lesson learned

Rainbow

So funny when the sky is grey but in my heart it’s blue

The sunshine everyday is like my mini atmosphere

A choice for everyone one of us to choose a daily hue

And mine is built on honesty and facing every fear

Remember when my sky was dark as if the sun were black

Anxiety controlled me and it fashioned my life smallI made decisions, some quite hard, and now my joy is backI stumbled but then I stood up and learnt about my fallMy life is not a chocolate box it is both sweet and sour But focus on the better make the bad peripheryPerspective is a choice and the mind has so much powerSo exercise and realise that you choose the things you seeMy life’s a mix of bad and good and everything betweenBut I am chasing rainbows and I’m following my dream

Homo Phobia

I twist and turn but cannot fit

No space in tiny mind

So flexible yet won’t admit

A place not mine to find

And so I sprawl and own it all

Create the man I am

A king who lives beyond the wall

The flood without a dam

I’m uncontained and unrestrained

No cramping of my style

Phenomenon quite unexplained

You cannot cloud my smile

I twist and turn contortion was

Creator of the new

But out of all proportion was

The hate I felt from you

Hobson’s Choice

Silence me you feel you must

Telling tolled the freedom bell

Stop my tongue remove my trust

Quietly descend to hell

Wordlessly I meet your gaze

Nothing reasoned I can say

Welcome me to end of days

Ask but I refuse to play

Piper paid with dirty cash

Music for a masquerade

Man or mouse all hope you dash

Worst of plans so careless laid

Democrat without a voice

People left with Hobson’s choice
