Communication Breakdown

Who are you forgetting me

Message in bottle sent

Thought like waves across the sea

Written words you never meant

Where are you belonging now

Sharing all I gifted you

Want to stop my longing how

Changing isn’t what I do

Why did constant come to end

Can forever never last

Like a book to freely lend

Future from disrupted past

Question you don’t give your word

All the silence I have heard


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

If yesterday were mine again and time could be replayed

What different steps along the path would I decide to take

But history cannot be changed like sheets my bed is made

And so remember live each day for everything’s at stake

Tomorrow’s sun is never known horizon can’t be seen

The future shoots into the dark destiny’s a risk

But I am optimistic of the up and coming scene

For there is a not a part of what’s to come that should be missed

However let the truth be said today is where I’m at

My now is here and happening I’m in my proper place

The past should be a lesson it can teach me how to act

So I’ll enjoy each moment with a smile upon my face

How wonderful that life is real and things are what they seem

Be present in each moment for existing’s not a dream


A river urging onward to the shore

The banks a prison stop it flowing free

The force so natural surging in my vein

Restrained I could not choose what I would be

My course was dammed you would not brook my dream

But I will flood convention and destroy

My rocky bed was not what you desire

And you no longer thirst that I enjoy

I am the sea my heart now saline washed

My ocean just a drop in your disdain

My flow won’t ebb so dry the pointless stream

My passing will allow you to remain

And if you ever think upon that spring

Just know I don’t regret the falling in

War of Independence

Without you here I’ve finally become

The man who walks away not looking back

The two divide and I’m remainder one

The future parts repressive clouds of black

I ran until my very breath expired

Then took the time to find the man I am

For life had left me bruised and broken, tired

Reality was nothing but a sham

The war of independence over now

Republic not subjected to a king

Consider this my last and final bow

For you to me no longer mean a thing

I’m not confined I live without a plan

Except to be a free and happy man

No matter

My orbit isn’t centred where you are

For in my universe you seem so small

My revolution’s fixed on distant star

Another body has me in its thrall

I’ll leave and travel far in outer space

Regretting nothing trusting in my heart

And on arrival there will be a face

The one that calls my name across the dark

Energy so constant in its flow

Tomorrow will not matter I was here

The other will be all you want to know

And from your thoughts I’ll slowly disappear

I know that when I meet him we will shine

The light will carry on through space and time
