Noughts and crosses

I don’t know if I’ll get there and not sure if I’ll go, but hope has to be somewhere the prophet told me so. If and when (the carrot and the stick ) I do will you be there before me? private questions with no answers dance across my tiring eyes, more sure of this…

Frequency modulation

From another side it’s what I can see when you’re standing out there and they’re looking at me through the cellophane because we all are as one, but then the moment is gone and still we go on with hope in our hearts that our day will come. Watch me shine through the cellophane. will…

Base ten

I lingered too long on her lips was I wrong? and why if ‘a kiss is just a kiss’ do I miss so much the kiss she kisses me with? I see eye to eye on the ‘fifty things to do before you die’, but each thing ends with us being more than just friends…

Incantations

It could be Sunday, the banks are shut but it’s Monday can you spot the difference? it may be diffidence on their part though I doubt it. And as it could be Sunday although it’s not I’ll take pot luck and go out sightseeing to somewhere worth seeing, but she’s cast her spell which makes…

Old man on a chair, watercolour 1956

We used to be didn’t we? then we went our separate ways you into the night and I into the distance of those lonely days watching interminable television plays based on love and romance let loose and yet instead of playing the field I became a recluse preferring to be alone seeking no company needing…

Almost Celeste

She puts the jingle in my jangle the sparks that shoot like laser lights to make the dark nights bright as day. When I woke up it was raining Facebook told me so, but the Sun came out when her eyes opened. If happiness be a state of mind look inside yourself and you will…

Retrieval

we try to but seldom do what’s gone is done, there could be a would we and if we did then should we but we never do. I’d be lost without you, the only map that I hold is of us growing old together. The chemistry or alchemy that makes one plus one add up…

Channels

She’s thinking, his house or mine? I’m thinking Bauhaus and time I was moving along. Some songs are meant to be sung some carried heavily in a heart and some are just part of the tapestry we wrap ourselves in with our misery…

Private Solomon

If you don’t kiss her you’ll never know how much you will miss her if you don’t kiss her every day. I have fought my wars in the foxholes of scars that the knives left behind. She doesn’t mind me and leaves me alone while I find me and my thoughts at the last will…

Chipped saucers

Changing position like shingle on the beach. We alter course alert to the least line of resistance most of the time. I was sitting in the Rendezvous dropping Benzedrine and drinking you in. That was eons ago or yesterday when we started slow in the Rendezvous, it’s difficult now to remember how things really were…

Songs for Saturday

When I was lonely with only my thoughts keeping company with me gone through the mirror where I belong life looking in or out at me, all alone alone such a lonely place to be, company she always managed to find me through shards of shattered glass tiptoeing I would pass quietly prints on your…

Schools of life

You went to your universities rehearsing your autobiographies and we are still as different as chalk and cheese and I suppose you’ll know a chemical symbol for those, but I wrote the writing to spend one more night in her arms, she left the light on to write me a love song and you don’t…

Green tea

…and who will cry then for the fallen? the men who gave all in the service for man. I am undecided. I can live and will die in the blink of your eye, in the way that your lips curl about mine and time has no meaning no sense am I dreaming? and who will cry then…

‘It’s love actually’

Monday I can do it ‘Standing on my head’ but I’d rather have hot milk and cornflakes smuggled into.. …red I feel the colour coming creeping waking up my life from sleeping dreams.. ..the wind can’t whistle properly it’s driving me insane and that constant spittle soaked Godiva always heralds rain. And now it’s half…

Changes

Starting half-heartedly but that’s just a part of me an idiosyncrasy of mine. buying into a system which in turn trys to destroy me is palpably and inherently wrong. I will continue as long as there’s continuing to do muddling through cuddling you getting to the end…

Scenes from a silk screen

On the right side of his highness popcorn and soda a code book and the road to salvation. Falling forever in love it was never like this. Intuition tells me that superstition is just that I throw salt over my shoulder anyway. Moments go by and I see them in the eye of the storm…

The match

Quick off the mark and when the light fails I am slick with the dark she leads me a dance I teach her the steps and they lead to romance. but down by the sea on the shore there’s just me and the silences that I adore. it’s a dice throw she knows and I…
