a carnal woman

maybe she was that way because she was sad and lonely

~

leaving a carnal, sexual, woman

one battle over, one victory won

the long struggle that will end

one day in honesty and freedom

not for her, not for years to come

heading to her favorite bar

to look for a much younger man

Armistice Day

they were young, they were pals, 744,000 of them died

~

they shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old:

age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

at the going down of the sun and in the morning

we will remember them.

lest we forget

sad sweet goodbye

you never lose someone you have truly loved

~

let the rains fall

and wash away her tears

let me be strong

and take away her fears

let me be kind enough

to wish her well

now she loves another

walking away from everything

carnal drinking is messy

addicted to sex, hitting the bars, picking up younger men

~

I was mystified

she cheated and lied

sadly that’s bad

~

she likes young men

when she can get them

and they know what to do

if not for her

cheating doesn’t come from a lack of love
it comes from a lack of respect

~

I saw you with that whore

open dress public amore

that’s only the final coup

guess that we’re through

nobody to blame but you

you could never be true

got to find someone new

well baby it’s a fond adieu

so stew you faithless bore

you can’t hurt me anymore

did you have to choose someone older?

 

her eyes spoke to his soul

behind her beautiful eyes lay secrets darker and deeper than the sea

~

 

it took me years to realise

that much to my surprise

I could find paradise in her eyes

 

~

her beautiful blue eyes enraptured his heart

Dreams of Love Lost

don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened

~

adieu

she’s gone

we were forever

how can love be over

it’s hard to control sadness

when will my heart beat again?

she knows I can never love another

crying the longest sad sorrow of adieu

better to have loved and lost

than never to have loved at all

Scenes on Sunday ~ Red Skies

red sky in the morning, sailor take warning

on a day like today

he would blow his cares away

with the wind, the sun, and the sea

lost love’s journey’s ending

the heart’s darkest wilderness is not a place of this Earth

~

I have journeyed far

through Xanadu, Samarkand, Shangri-la, and Elsinore

I traveled not for love alone

but to fulfill my quest, meet my fate, and free my soul

my heart torn apart by ardour

I wandered by the mountains of the moon’s raging river

in darkest passion’s burning fervour

I could take the pain and stand the rain as should warrior

a warrior proud, steadfast, alone forever

I wouldst take you far to Shangri-la, a land of never never

so join me, my princess most proud and fair

be my Lady, my Goddess, Queen of Camelot and Elsinore

to be together, as it ’twere long ago and before

lost love’s journey’s ending, together now and forevermore

darkness cannot drive out darkness

only the dawn’s early light can do that
