Not In Love (Acrostic)
Not in love? he asked
Over and over again
There was a silence
Indignant towards her
Not in love? he asked again
Leaning towards her
Over the dinner table
Vacant look on her face
Evident that she meant every word.
War Of Words (Acrostic)
Wrestling with his conscience
Abstaining from verbal exchange
Regretting his wrods
Offended by obscenities
Forgetting his ticket
What is happening now?
Obnoxious little men
Rallying in no mans land
Spasmodic verbal abuse.
A Disagreement (acrostic)
A n attempt to bamboozle him.
D irecting the abomination

A ffection going nowhere.

All cards are marked it's a game of chance
Fate collides leading us a merry dance
Slight of hand very quick
Nine or twenty one card trick
Luck never gives it only lends
Playing the cards always contends
Fate never looses it deals so svelte
It was always to be the hand that was dealt
So now all cards are marked
And all fates will collide
When at the table you next reside.

Stand tall on shelves.

I sit in silence deep in thought
By the light of a dying ember
The mind forgets but the heart does not
Imagination's dreamlike splendour
I sit and dream of an old desire
I think of faces and remember names
They all come back when new things tire
As I sit by the fading fire flames
Night time thoughts have slipped away
And joy always seems to end
The dawning of a new day
Another day in which I contend.
A Bumpy Night
He knows he has the power to control
Drawing you down the deepest hell hole
The day is done the sun rides low
A cry for help or mercy heard below.
Can you feel the surge of power
As your soul it does devour
An energy field all of it's own
My eyes turn upward to atone.
With strength and power I fasten my seatbelt
It was a bumpy night that I dwelt
Now I soar up above the earth
And dare to hope for rebirth.
I'm not as beautiful as a rainbow
I am the morning dew
Dancing on the tip of a leaf
Transient in the light of day
Life is inviting me to
Dance on the edge of time
To the music of love.
For a life that is bold
Is an adventure untold
So come along for the ride
The world is is made of
Faith, trust and pixie dust
I invite you to dance
Lightly with me
On the edges of time
Like dew on the tip of a leaf.
Is What Makes Life So Sweet
Memories made over the years
Brings myself to shed some tears.
As future on the past will knock
We can't go turning back the clock.
Replaying the memories in my mind
Of the heartache that I left behind.
Clues to what the future will hold
As the passage of time does unfold.
My entire search is in vain
That it will never come again.
Is what makes life so sweet
A memory caught in a single heartbeat.
When I Let Go
A guiding light to illuminate the way
I'll follow the light to seal my fate
The spirit of me to reawaken.
Yesterday I let go of what I am today
I hold the key to unlock the gate
To change the path that I have taken.
Today I accomplish what I set out to do
With ambition I set out the program
There's always a choice you see.
Tomorrow I set out on paths anew
When I let go of what I am
And become what I might be.
