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.

Cave Man

I’m empty like a cave

My soul would be an echo

But if there is no shout

The trap of silence I know

The dark it is my cloak

And I will cast no shadow

The man who only waits

Until there’s not tomorrow

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

In Sane

My rockers off

Perhaps I need restart

Depression trough

Don’t want to fall apart

Control is out

I pinball through my days

I’m full of doubt

My path is somewhat crazed

But where’s the way

I’ve tried to leave insane

And every day

Confusion leads to pain

Emotion rift

I need the help of hand

My mental shift

Is riddled in the sand
