spectres of desire

in her dreams were the spirits of all those she had wronged

~

there are ghosts in the mist

demons haunt the darkness

pale memories of loves lost

the pain of a broken heart

as the night drives us apart

friends once tenderly kissed

then dismissed as we parted

warm love became ice frost

stone demons haunt the mist

nightmares of a dark love incarnate

Love’s Lost Friendship

whatever you want from me only love and friendship can give

~

I learned that I can still cry

sorrow is the other face of joy

to grieve silently is to be human

lost and broken and yet I’m a man

now all this friend can say is goodbye

you were the only love I’ve ever known

dawn in New Mexico

a better time to say farewell

Kiss From A Witch

never kiss a witch in the moonlight

~

on all Hallows eve

don’t promise a witch

on a long lover’s kiss

in the bright moonlight

else you will be hers

forever and always

only a lunatic should kiss a witch

 

Lies Always Hurt

what becomes of a man with a broken heart?

~

my broken heart aches

you could see in in her eyes

her life had been filled with lies

I was the one lying

 

 

Sails and the Sea

Life is like sailing, you can use any wind to go in any direction

~

scattered like butterflies

under grey autumn skies

reflected and mirrored

haze shimmered and silvered

riding the send of the sea

against a rising tide

ignoring our dreams

our plans and schemes

the sea has a life of it’s own

seems we can’t have it all

for I’m I’m no Bogy

and sadly you’re no Bacall

 

this is not Key Largo

I must go down to the sea again

Dreams and Seascapes

My melancholy soul matches the grey sea

~

Haunting music of the wind, wave counterpointed, grey sky echoed

Frames the seascape seascape bowl with solitary figure walking

A lonely man struggling, changing but ever the same

The loneliness of a beachcomber

I had a girl

the fundamental interconnectedness of all things

~

darkness unfolds into morning

the moonlight shines though

what am I to you?

Once I knew her

then she knew me

Be Yourself

losing yourself means accepting what others think of you

~

be yourself

in your bad dreams

be yourself

in your worst nightmares

be yourself

in dark desolate loneliness

be yourself

when all seems lost and hopeless

be yourself

be yourself because there is no one else

~

in the starry, starry night

be yourself ~ there is nobody else

 

Her Smile

just like those remembered days when the dawn sang

~

then quite suddenly I see

if you smile, not just for me

the world is a lovelier place

those tears have disappeared

all that sadness has vanished

the old songs never did end

and we walk again by the sea

remembering the you I adored

~

give your Goddess all the love you can

now that she’s gone

I pushed her away, into the evening light, a million miles away

~

from afar

where the night ended

a happy cry said it wasn’t over

and all at once I had it all

nothing else mattered

but my tears

~

wait ’till you see me cry

with tears of joy over my smile
