Anchor

If you could just stay still

Then I could try to give you all the love and care you need

A minute nothing more

I’ll take a final look at you before you take your leave

For now your moving on

Some new adventure on the seven seas that must be tried

I stay behind again

While you going out and getting high I’m left to dry

Why don’t you find some peace

The newest waves will come and go without you taking part

Just hold me really close

And take a minute listen to the siren in my heart

But I will set you free

For you were born explorer and you choose to sail alone

But sometimes think of me

The one who only ever wanted you to be my home

But you can ebb and flow

For I will always wait for you and that’s the part I play

The anchor of your life

Without me waiting here you wouldn’t know you that you’re away

Samaritan

Never chosen
Always last
Uninvited
Never asked
Made me bitter
You’re so sweet
Got the whole world
At your feet 
Never smiling
Wear a frown
You ascend as
I fall down 
Wish that I was
Light and gay
Bruised and battered
Born this way
See you staring
Clouded eyes
Hand of friendship
Help me rise
Different people
Human kind
Help your neighbour
Love is blind
I was chosen
Only one
Turned my face to
See the sun

Humanity

We each of us are something quite unique
Cannot be found in any other place
So I might be exactly what you seek
To put that fallen smile back on your face
So talk with me a while and take your time
Unburden woes that stop you living dreams
To need a helping hand is not a crime
And things are never bad as they might seem
My friend can I confess if you need me
You give me purpose make me feel alive
So lean on me my help is given free
In helping you I help myself to thrive
I need you most when you think you need me
This give and take is called humanity

Space

My inner space so when did you appear
Intruder uninvited on my plane
For lonely gripped my fingers in your sphere
Your angle’s not conducive to my aim
A vacuum mother nature does abhor
But I am not your mother little boy
And you plus me’s not what my line is for
So I’ll divide and leave remainder joy
Subtracting you negates the need to cry
The algebra of love’s insanity
My x will never equal, don’t ask why
We shoud not meet until infinity
An integer still single in my prime
What matters is I have my space in time

Puzzling

If all my dreams are avenues I’ve walked
I hope the final turning brings me peace
If all my thoughts are conversations talked
The puzzle solved could win me my release
If all I have imagined could be real
My dreams would lie prosaic on the floor
If all the wonder isn’t what I feel
Then magic won’t be found here anymore
If all the truth I’m given is a lie
Those dusty dreams are trampled under feet
If all that I can do is wonder why
I guess my life will never feel replete
But if you dream and wonder what will be
You might just be the piece completing me

Nowhere Left

He’s talking to himself he doesn’t cease
The manic man won’t look at others much
The voices in his head shape his belief
He’s bad and must deny the human touch
Reality it died some years ago
Was forced to leave his children and his wife
He’s not all right but nowhere left to go
Delusion has usurped his other life
His paranoia nothing but despair
The voices have such difficult demands
They see contamination everywhere
The hundred times that he must wash his hands
No longer sure what’s real and what is not
But voices are the only thing he’s got
