The Elusive Hero

The Elusive Hero

I wait I wait
For the fairytale to begin
Put my life on hold
Keep my breath in
Until he comes
Who he is I do not know
Yet I have waited for him my whole life through
Is it him over there or is it you?
Sometimes I think I glimpse him
Reflected in my lovers eyes
But in the morning he is gone
My elusive intangible hero
Always out of reach
A shadow in my mind
Keeping me restless
Keeping me blue
Looking for you

Sisters of the Sea

The sky looked on, as bruised as my spirit
The sea was boiling with my own fury
The starlings danced in perfection once known
I feel the loss
I feel the loss
Of your mind and mine
Lost in waves of wine
Both drowning with hands raised to forgotten heavens
We twist in the deeps, I yearn to let go
Of your dead weight
Know that I won’t
Can’t
Entwined from the womb
Swimming in the same blood
I look out for our shore
Sure that there is more
Love
Peace
And waters calm

Pissheads

piss heads in the park
piss heads in the park

staying out till dark
staying out till dark

dont wanna see the crack in your arse
when you're lying on the grass
dont wanna hear your shout
when im just out walking about

piss heads in the park

staying out till dark
staying out till dark

dont wanna see your veins
coming out your brains
dont wanna feel the pain

From The Series 'Moon Rivers

An evening spent with the children of the children of the holocaust
Different lives
Different strives
To be something, someone
In relation to all that is gone
In the past long ago and long since hence
We are still bound by the energies the mysteries we can only partially glimpse at through Ancestors eyes
And try to surmise our own meaning and existence
Make some sense of it all
The call

Of genetics and emotional heritage
This is us we are they and they are them
And between us all is a thread that links the whole chain,
From me to you and back again
The underlying synchronicity and wisdom of it all
This life inextricably linked to all others
The magic of how I met you and you met me
And how we came to be this three
Sitting here sipping champagne
