Dumbed

February 20, 2020

Another pink nocebo 

To help me through my day 

I’m so unsure if I want more 

I’d like another way 

To bring about a peacefulness

Awake me from this mess

That rolls around inside my brain 

Then causes hopelessness 

As it’s so very tiring 

To take this pointless pill 

As all it seems to bring about 

A numbness to my ill

All of my heart 

February 14, 2020

I haven’t got the look of love 

As ABC once asked 

I haven’t even got a card 

No secret lady masked 

But one could say that it’s ok 

As life goes down it’s track 

So shoot your poison arrow now

So I can send it back

My sweet

February 09, 2020

I want to live my life some way 

Another way 

Another day 

I want to live a life of love 

Eternal love 

With one true love 

 

To be the first thing when you wake

The smile across the room 

The hand you reach for when you're scared 

Your ladder from the gloom 

To light your way when you are lost 

The gentle nudge of joy 

The best of people that you know 

The man that’s sometimes boy 

A silliness when serious 

Your humble overture 

To look at you with X-ray eyes 

When you are so demure 

To hold your hand on winter walks 

To marvel in your sun 

Then cherish all I think of you

My one to be my one 

 

I want to live my life with you 

Not any you 

But only you 

I want my heart to miss a beat 

Another beat 

With you my sweet

Once, twice, three times too many 

February 04, 2020

My broken devotion less heart 

The tortured innards of my mind 

That soul sinking feeling of lies

That drown my body in gravity 

 

Emotion triggers emotions 

Thoughts clash with dreams 

Dreams shatter hope

Hope has no home here 

For hope is simply the dream 

 

My broken emotion full heart 

The wires that can’t reach an end 

An inter mesh of tragic belief 

The overwhelming sense of loss 

 

Emotion triggers emotions 

Thoughts clash with dreams 

Dreams shatter hope

Hope has no home here 

For hope is simply the dream 

 

My broken commotion full heart 

That withers with each battled war 

Scarred with those days of the past

But still bringing life through my veins

Stranded 

January 28, 2020

I’m a little pastel pebble 

At the bottom of the sea 

I twist then turn and roll along 

At the whim of destiny 

 

I bump the other pebbles 

They often say hello 

But then the tide takes them away 

Now sand is all I know 

 

I see the seaweed drifting by 

The creatures great and small 

But no one here to talk to me 

The sand won’t talk at all
