"The Poet's Truth"

Then the poet said...My home is in space...It is there i must one day return...The imagery i have presented thus far are but reflections of memories of my past...Is the truth less poetic than imagination?...Were i to fly away before your eyes...would i be less than the dream flier you conjure in your mind?

The truth cannot be passed over...painted over...or ignored...It is what it is...And when the time comes all will be talking about what they denied while they still had time...As they watch the great ship leaving the uncomfortable truth of a planet gone crazy...All claiming to be correct...All claiming to be right...All missing the truth between the extremes...The truth that passed before them in plain sight...Now that truth is leaving for wherever such craft go...And in those moments they will ponder as the great ship fades into the smoky brown sky...Why were we left behind?

"We've Got Problems"

we've got problems
everyone knows
we've got problems
ain't that how it goes?
but that's life
it happens every day

we've got questions
search for the truth
we've got questions
still waitin' for news
but that's life
it happens every day

one person's heaven
another one's hell
one person's perfume
somebody elses
evil smell
yeah an evil smell

we've got troubles
we've got the blues
we've got troubles
we're payin' our dues
but that's life
it happens every day

one person's heaven
another one's hell
one person's perfume
somebody elses
evil smell
yeah an evil smell

A short poem --


A New Sun


A similiarity exists

between fission-fusion,

and,

democracies-autocracies:

The compressive force

of communication,

"Where Do I Go"

i could say
pity on me
i've played the fool again
i could say
nothing is right
so should i go wrong
i could say
because they don't care
i should vanish
in the thin air

but where do i go when i leave them all behind?
it's clear i'm not wanted here
but what else can i find?
i can remember
a trusted friend of mine
where do i go when i leave them all behind

i could say
trusted too much
now i'm on my own again
i could say
it's all my my fault
i held on too long
i could say
because they don't care
i should vanish
in the thin air

but where do i go when i leave them all behind?
it's clear i'm not wanted here
but what else can i find?
i can remember
a trusted friend of mine
where do i go when i leave them all behind

i made my mistakes
i'm trying to learn
when i get shot down
i'll find another page to turn

but where do i go when i leave them all behind?
it's clear i'm not wanted here
but what else can i find?
i can remember
a trusted friend of mine
where do i go when i leave them all behind

I was feeling miserable all day yesterday...this is the fruit of it.

"No Good"

you scream and you hollar 'cause the worlds hard to follow
and it's no good
the people that matter break up and they scatter
and it's no good
the outlook before you either scares you or it bores you
and it's no good
you were already humble in this mumbo jumbo jungle
and it's no good

A chorus that i wrote a couple weeks ago for a non-existent song.

Daniel and Julie - I read your poems with
a smile.. Not because they are all happy -
but because they are all good. ;-)
Thank you.

"I Don't Know If I Can Do It"

i think about the way things are
and what i want to be
time has turned me inside out
and still i can't break free
from a yesterday that holds me fast
no matter how the years go past

and i don't know if i can do it
i don't know if i can understand
it's been so long since i've been someone
now i don't know if i still can

i think about the things you said
the words still ring so clear
it seems like only yesterday
but it's been years for me
a time that came and passed me by
i try to change but i don't know why

and i don't know if i can do it
i don't know if i can understand
it's been so long since i've been someone
now i don't know if i still can

they say time can ease the pain
i've been takin' mine
i still find it hard to find my peace of mind

and i don't know if i can do it
i don't know if i can understand
it's been so long since i've been someone
now i don't know if i still can

OF AUTUMN

While the moon through the heaven glides,
With music enchanting our way,
come in the gladness to stray
Of the gorgeous autumn-tides.

Now comes the wind, and lifts
The gold of glad forests along;
And many a mystical song
Along the breeze with it drifts.

This life is most gracious and dear,
Enchanting our way as we go
With the laughter and golden glow
Of autumns singing clear.

Beautiful :)
Now I just need to find where I put my last bunch. Or rather the last bunch I actually wrote down...
Couple of short ones - enjoy.


Somewhere there’s a rainbow
As green as your eyes
Somewhere there’s a heaven
Where my heart can fly


Madness is just around the corner
The drop is just in front of me
These wings of air won’t hold me
I’ll break when I get there


I spread out my wings,
So you could clip them.
I gave you my heart,
So you could pull a knife.
I made you break me,
So I could die.


The corridors fill with your memories
The emptiness flows with your smile
Time stretches out to eternity
Spread wings and fly

CT (2009)

Each paragraph is a seperate one, though they share a common theme.
Not my best ones, just what I was able to find right now.

"Free Love"

free love
just around the corner
at the garden store
just plant it in the ground
and someday will grow more
free love
becomes a circle
no beginning and no end
just share it with your friends
and it will come again

"Letting Go"

it's hard to let go
i fight this myself
with both the living
and the dead
i always want to hang on
even when i know
that sometimes
the miracle is in letting go

ALL OF WHITE AND OF GOLD


All of white and of gold
Are the pinions of my angels;
But Love
Hath pinions changing.


His sweet wings are turn by turn
The colour of purple and roses,
And the crimson sea where uncloses
The kiss of the sun.


The beautiful wings of my angels
Are very slow,
And open closed.


But the agile wings of Love
Are impatient,
And like hearts never rest.

"Precious and Few"

gotta move on sometime
everybody's gone
ain't got the time of day
we miss in the morning
regret the afternoon
then comes the evening
and it's over too soon

all of this chatter
does it really matter?
we do what we have to do
all i can get is less than i need
and moments alone with you
are precious and few

gotta stop time sometime
everybody's gone
it's all just a dream away
we miss all the good things
losing me and you
then comes a moment
and it's over too soon

all of this chatter
does it really matter?
we do what we have to do
all i can get is less than i need
and moments alone with you
are precious and few

precious and few
is the sweet time
when i'm alone with you
precious and few
in the meantime
we hang on the the hope
hold on tight and try to cope

all of this chatter
does it really matter?
we do what we have to do
all i can get is less than i need
and moments alone with you
are precious and few
