Birdbrain

I am but a fool
To love you so
Simply a fool
I should have let go

I am but a fool
A ninny, a nit
I am but a fool
A birdbrain, a twit

I am just a bonehead
A halfwit, a boob
I am but a dimwit
A silly old goose

But I just can't help it…
My heart's made that way
I'll still love tomorrow
What I've loved so today…

Lost and Found

Lost and Found
Date: July 14,2012

I dug beneath the dusty heap
And found a treasure there
I gathered it into my arms
And gave it tender care
I held it close against my breast
And smoothed the ruffled wings
I gently stroked the twisted notes
Till I could hear it sing

Tinsel Tease

All the gold, a tinsel tease
No treasure neath the shine
All the fire burning bright
Was never yours, but mine
All the passion, born of rage
Lay trapped within a dream
Whispers of a budding rose
Were never yours it seems
All the heart, it takes to love
Was twisted in a storm
All the fawn and flattery
Will never keep me warm
All the sparks that rise to fly
Were stifled by deceit
All the doubt imprisoned here
Has left me incomplete

Love Waits The Lonely Skies

Velvet of the darkest night
Soft as winter wind
Sighs to set the soul aflame
A hunger creeping in
Flutters sweet, a lullaby
A breath of midnight blue
Stars that pock the sleepy sky
Let passion trickle through
Sparks kindle fast the secret fire
A burning, no remorse
Tarries still, the longing heart
For fate to find its course
Hidden safe from prying eyes
Love dwells within the dream
In latent whispers of the heart
Forgotten…so it seems

Only You

Only You
Date: December 9,2011

Only your words
Can set the pace
Growing strong
Finding grace
Only your smile
Buying time
Feigning courage
Drinking wine
Only your pride
Can cast aside
Embrace the passion
Trapped inside
Only your spirit
Will feel the loss
Reeling from
The excessive cost
Only your love

Time Can't Change This Heart O'Mine

Time does not erase the wind
Alight my windowpane
No more than time to chase the clouds
Or stop the winter’s rain
The midday tide can’t wash away
The remnants of this dream
No more than midnights rushing waves
Can change its youthful themes
The burning of my very core
Still flames with love no doubt
And yet the years go rushing by
While I still do without
A twinkling in the moonlit skies
My mind it tarries still
Thinking of my long lost love
Of this, it always will

Take The Fire

Take The Fire
Date: January 17,2012

Take the fire away from me
Never more again to see
There’s no spirit to rouse and warm
Only smoke, my eyes to burn
The beauty of a snow white swan
Is smothered by the flaunt and fawn
Tarnished kisses charge the air
To whisper false of grand affairs
A bright red rose, wrapped in thorns
Defies the passion, vowed and sworn
So take the fire, I have no need
It burns of lust, it burns of greed

Damp and Dewy

Should I embrace the victim
And lay down tears and woe
The sod gets damp and dewy
Yet still no flowers grow
The sun will rise before me
Why linger in the rain
No sense to keep pretending
With nothing there to gain
Sometimes I smell the flowers
Of passions I once knew
And in those fleeting moments
My thoughts return to you
I breathe the sweet surrender
A moment, then it's gone
Then shake off all the memories
Pickup and carry on
I have no use for victims
They'll be no tears and woe
Through sod, damp and dewy
I'm smiling as I go

Sharks Teeth

Sharks Teeth
Date: February 21,2012

You gathered me in shadows
Spurned me in the light
At noon, your teeth sharpened
At dusk, you're taking sight
Caught between the crosshairs
A victim…aye, the prey
My heart, an easy target
A simple lot to slay

A meal of easy pickings
Like rabbit in a snare
Your rage is fired upon me
A shot to burn the air
A moment then it's over
Your motives met the mark
You feast upon your victory
Circling like a shark

No Place To Hang A Hat

Did we make a name, my sweet
Or was it just illusion
Little whispers of heavens grace
Marred by our confusion
Our words fell out of order
Spilt ashes to the ground
The winds rose up to claim them
And blew them round ‘n round
Passions stirred and altered
Mixed bitter with the sweet
No chance of resurrection
The story's incomplete
The fate, that I was given
Is separate, not the same
No room for indecision
No patience for such games
A decade in the making
A wisp and then it's gone
It slipped right through our fingers
When it couldn't find a home
