The rain is coming soon

To wash away the dust

And all will be renewed

And once again I’ll trust

The dry was in my mouth

It took away my voice

But when the river floods

Again I’ll state my choice

So now I sit and wait

I watch for heavy cloud

The past must be destroyed

Then future is allowed

The coming storm will break

And I will leave the shell

And in the fresh I’ll start

My wander to the well



Empty street is where I’m driving

Destination still unknown

Traffic light on path less taken

Far away and yet I’m home

I remember life before was

Roundabout and indirect

So I ran and left you standing

Taking just my self respect

Many ask me how I manage

Solitary on my way

But no longer in confinement

Freedom has a price to pay

Onward journey I’m departing

Ever moving never still

Won’t be numbed in colder comfort

Driven by an iron will


Falling flowers

Scatter on the grass

Trembling bowers

Autumn comes to pass

Spring remembered

Winter overdue

Soon dismembered

Nothing ever new

Summer lightened

Bright the fleeting days

Senses heightened

Separating ways

Oh my lover

Take a different route

Then discover

Blossom comes to fruit


I’m half way to the moon and back

I’m lost in outer space

I’m running till I lose myself

And find a better place

I’m lone but I am not alone

I have a dream to hold

But it was not to be with you

And so I leave the fold

I see you do not understand

Which only proves me right

For you are scared of dark

I am a creature of the night

I don’t think I am coming back

So far can be my home

My baby has been laid to rest

But I was born to roam


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

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
