An Epitaph

This is the end, what now begins? I feel the darkness moving in I can tell this is the end remember me for this, my friend: I lived, I loved, I laughed, I lied and well before my time; I died.

Bottle on the Mantle

There’s a bottle on the mantle I can feel it pull me in I prob’ly shouldn’t drink it But I really want that gin It won’t solve all my problems It won’t make me feel okay There’s a bottle on the mantle Why won’t it go away? There’s no problem with indulging every now and then The problem comes with wanting to drink and drink again There’s a bottle on the mantle Sweet and crystal clear That bottle on the mantle is calling me, Oh dear. I don’t think I have a problem I don’t drink to excess But some […]

For a Blonde (formerly Sonnet I)

Thou possesseth the loveliest blonde hair and thou hast a most engaging smile to merely gaze upon thy face so fair I wouldst surely walk many a mile I find thee to be the most enticing woman I’ve ever laid my eyes upon if life is a cake, thou art the icing on a pastry that makes mine woes begone I aspire to be with thee each day To spend all eternity at thine side Whenever you’re near i can’t find the way and the courage i build up runs to hide I’d tell the world mow much I care […]

Silly Boy

I don’t know how it happened I really can’t tell why All that I can tell you Is you’re the apple of my eye I see you when I go to bed You star in all my dreams Sometimes I merely lay awake And wonder what it means That of all the people in the world I should fall for you And I be even luckier That you should like me too It seems to me: a blessing A gift from up above To be lent the opportunity The chance to fall in love With a woman twice as beautiful […]

Down The Steps

all alone sitting Crying emotions welling swirling dying what have i done? what did i do? what has brought this out of you? all i ever do is try whirl swirl crash and die all i ever felt has died flaming twisted burning wreckage have you could you get the message? what can i say? what can i do? to get my point across to you falling slowly deeper still succumbing to the pain i will i know i’m right i’ve done no wrong why then do i sing this dreary song follow the steps down to the end to […]

Untitled – 3

From her heavenly lips she delivers a kiss a pure moment of joy that i dare not miss i live for this moment, a strive to be here it never quite fails to lend my heart cheer i wish i could see her, hold her in my arms to sample her presence, to sample her charms i beg you fair lady: take me into your grace permit me to gaze upon your fair face i have not much to offer but my weary ol’heart but i suspect you have had just that from the start i miss you now, when […]

First Kiss

I find it to be a most beautiful thing that something so simple can make my heart sing The simplest gesture that ever there was has me clicking my heels together because deep down inside me emotions are welling it feels as though my lost soul is swelling A moment in time, a blink and no more sends tidings of joy to my innermost core a feeling of warmth, of loving affection, that finally my life is given direction i thank you for this, from the bottom of my heart i feel so alive, as though given a start I’m […]

And God Said…

A voice boomed out, from heaven above Strong and important, but so full of love “What have you done? My most prized Creations? You’ve tarnished the world with you’re ‘bominations!” And people were terrified, struck down with fear At the sound of a voice none thought they would hear And God, he continued, with a hint of distress “I gave you a planet, and you’ve made it a mess I told Adam and Eve, from my seat in the sky Go out, be fruitful and please multiply But what do I get for all my troubles and labour? 6 billion […]


It’s an almost a tangible sense of doom Like a misty haze has beset the room In which I sit and ponder “why?” It’s come to this, a clouded eye Keeping me from seeing what must be done That I may walk again out in the sun A guiltless man, careless, free A different man, far from me I’ve committed wrongs, and heinous sins I can no longer tell where the list begins Of all the things I’ve done and now regret And cause me to worry, stress and fret How do I deliver my restitution? Without ending up in […]
