Lyrical Lecture

You wanna know how to write?
Then learn from me,
My words are from the heart,
So true and free,
So listen up,
And listen good,
My rhymes always flow,
Just like they should,
I'll stomp you out,
And throw you about,
I'll kick you in the face,
Without a doubt,
I'll drag you around,
And beat you to a pulp,
I'm breaking bones,
Just like the hulk,
Gashes and bruises,
I'm tired of your e...

When I’m remembering you

(Put on Chet Baker - Almost Blue - then read in his voice)


The only time we meet is when I’m remembering you

All my thoughts a bridge

Constructed out of loyal recollections

Reflections I’ve perfected in my mind

And again you are divine

Again you are mine

More mine than ever - before

For a moment -

For a moment - sublime

More than ever before

When I’m remember...

Cry on Moana we could use the rain

She's so tired

Saddened and uninspired

Looking through her shoe-box of memories

Trying to find out what happened to her desires



Cry on...Cry on

Cry on


we could use the rain

Cry on...Cry on

Cry on


who knew a shoe box of memories could carry so much pain


A new Morning will dawn

Love will come to find you

Love will come walking u...

Have You Seen My Wayfaring Father

Have you seen my wayfaring father

He went astride before I was grown

He left our stead and my fragile mother

(He said he would not tarry long)

I summon him this decoration day


I left our stead late December

(With no ballast or chink in my pockets)

Across Mountain brook

Through thorn-ed bramble

To find him consorting with the abandons

I will not be swayed, this de...

For a moment (Lyrics)

entry picture

I want to find myself lost in the panic of a moment

Want to feel my heart skip a beat

When I see the girl of my dreams - staring at me

Yeah - Staring - smiling - right at me


Yeah and the moment will feel so real - but it will be like a dream

And we’ll feel so light in our moment

Like we’re standing on the moon

Yeah like we’re standing on the moon


And it will be li...

Free Pass

Renegade living, after the Vietnamese boat-boy was beaten, after motorcyclist came looking, after steel toe-capped boots and a hammer threat, after a nearly ended dad by caged bird
Forty miles from the sea he shouted about a broken car window handle, never onto manipulations or abortions
Too tight squeezes later, tax man and his vice girl with the lost dog lie
By nervous accident, same place, f...

And I want to be a better man to you mum.. .

But you just don't agree with the things I have done, while I don't agree with having

to be socially accepted I need to conform, but you don't understand. 


I live for myself in a flurried world.


Where being myself is such a crime and I can't imagine myself alive, at the thought of  cheating my own mind... 

It breaks me apart!

Walking along 
listening to the birdsong 
dancing on the wind  
a seagull flew by 
look to the right 
tree in the sky 
makes me feel alright.

Spin the wheel, 
the sandman steals 
the leaves deceive, 
blinded by the green 
the ocean dreams 
three little trees 
one full seed,
black and blue 
inbetween the green 
a reddened hue. 

Eleven points in tact,

A storm is coming 
and I can't sleep. 
I can feel the deep 
lapping at my feet. 
Tides tease 
waves black and violent 
breathe, plead
come inside take a peek. 
I think I retreat 
go back 
hide in the trees 
where the owl 
steals my dreams 
and the grass 
colours everything green.
Not all is 
always as it seems 
in between lies 
the true heart of things.

Mystic Blue

I think of you my ocean view, 
my sweet sunrise, 
my mystical moonlight blue. 
I think of you all the time, 
all the while 
drowning in my sleep. 

You drive me crazy 
with your absence. 
You drive me crazy 
with your presence. 
I love the chaos you bring, 
leaves me incomplete, 
open, breakable.

The less you give, 
the more I want. 
The more you give, 
all I want. 
I long for you

Golden Hues

Can't write a line for the fire 
burning in my mind. 
An ocean of flames, 
she ignites inside. 
A passion so deep, 
I thought long ago died. 
I buried it down 
and now it does rise.

I see a beauty in her eyes, 
a spark that's hard to define, 
even harder to find. 
Her smile sets the soul alight 
and I bask in the glory 
of her perfect light.

When I listen to you read,

now start breathing,

everything around is around for the same reason. 

Catastrophe, catastrophe its all the same feeling

i'm too old to move on, i'm too old to keep dreaming.


When to move on is to grow and to grow is not leaving,

in a promise land we grow, and speak of the same reason

we speak of heaven and hell like they're not the same demon.

The Transcendentalist

So the scents of pre cornflake sex
And post energy drink breath
Pervades the carriage like a squid squadron infusion..

Acrid lemon bleach musk cologne
Tinkly-plink-thud beats effervesce from earphones
She leans arching on the glass pane knackered
Eye-liner Rothko remastered
Her groin marine satyr
Not so lucky a bastard
She receives a sext from another torpedo piece of spam with pecs

Tycho (Deviationist Astronaut And The Zany Karmic Architect)

I'm rushing below the firmament in a submarine
Pulled up by balloons 
Rocket thrusters won't work in a vacuum
The torrid plasma liquid washes over the viewing screen
And the Hubble telescope cannot anywhere be seen
This periscope doesn't recognise the space handed to us it seems..

Am I floating beneath the epidermis of a prison planet scheme
I fear this is way beyond my theosophical steam

The Vast Asterism Dawn

Yet close
Yet not
Nursing only the mirage
Threading through the veiled horizon

Or release
The lifting
The reveal
A beauty insane

The first spark
Igniting the internal jet ruby
Imparting the call answer
Sweeping up all my nights' rivers
Washing away stones carelessly thrown
Rivulets melt time frozen reshowing

Drops flung
The infinite ocean a drop

I Had To Write This Poem

I had to write this poem 
because I thought of this one great line,
What do you think -
will it stand the test of time?

Well, I had to write it down
to deter other poets stealing this idea;
You know lines are clutched from the atmosphere,
Or they fall like apples, spill over like beer.

I had to write this poem,
Because I thought of this one great line;
Like a beat messiah,

Forest Gate Mystery Train (Spoken Word)


I'm on the Forest Gate Mystery Train,
With my burgled geranium eyes.
I'm on the Forest Gate Mystery Train,
Sighing goldfish clock sardine spies.

Frost-buckled arms glow margarine,
Slender dolls slalom offside knees,
Capsules backslide into the stalagmite City.

But the way that pavement cyclist 
Pedestrian-pranged me his signature

Suffering concrete-kissing discomfiture

So as the pebble-assed smurf pelted away
Revolving dalek camera on his pompous high viz head

The Abundance of Pleasure

entry picture

Do not be subjected to the selfish objectives 

of single serving soulmates out to leave you rejected. 

Left wondering why you elected to stay this connected, 

instead of using your head, choosing to prove,

you knew we would lose this connection


So stay strong and focused, it won't take too long to notice, 

that your modus for selection, can be bogus so focus your weapon

Nothing compares to the treasure that is Treva

No underestimating fate when it comes to Pleasure.

I might be talking forever, I find this girl super clever

She’s a proper showstopper winning Prom Queen elections

A War for the Ages, A Battle of Titans

I believe it’s the truth; when I listen to your story,

Because what kind of fool would let someone else destroy,

The preconceived notion of what it means to feel joy and

Give someone the power to make you scour the void


For a moment of smiles, for some semblance of hope,

Someone in this world that will, remember your jokes

And those resembling friends, they’ll assemble your ...

The Death of a Connection, Life of Protection

My Hands cover my face because I’m ashamed,

And the pain too much for me to sustain

The game didn’t change us, we’re all still the same

I blame myself, I couldn’t handle the fortune and fame


All the kisses exist on other lover’s lips

In my mind I remember the list when I reminisce

Finding out the best of this was yet to come

A Transitional Break/ Until Each Other's Dying Day

I cut myself with your pictures, when I feel alone,

Scarring part of my heart, with your cellular phone

You’re the backdrop for heartache this week and the next

Your contact was cathartic ‘til I started failing tests


The one where I’m strong for the longest haul

And I don’t get jealous when your exes call.

I’m imperfect, yet I’ve proven my potential for hope

Phoenix on the Mend

Rebuilding sanity starts with destroying memories.

Regret on your shoulders, don’t let it crush you for centuries.

The pressure someone else has forced upon you is gone

Your shackles are broken, time for you to sing your own song

Like surviving a painful experience with little help,

Holding on for the Long Haul

Life between us moved a little too fast,

I'm wishing that these aching moments without you, would pass

and hope they don't last for more than we need,

because I'm wildly wondering and quietly mumbling

stumbling and tumbling, my words always fumbling

it’s humbling to be headed toward our destiny

while the rest of me needs to succeed with my team.

You're the reason I’m sleeping ...

This riot doesn’t subside, just because you wish it

Sometimes we need a medium just to take the trip with.

Of your imagination, try to stick with being grounded

Founded in this new creation, you and I are quite astounding

The Cataplexic Laws of Nature

Love isn't tethered to a standard model

The universe operates on massive throttle

Engage this new Enterprise to warp speed,

Because our love transcends all the warnings


No one warned me about infinite possibilities

Make the challenge seem more than torn at the seams

Bored with the schemes, reporting that scenes

seem more than just an ordinary score for the team.

My Adjective Addiction

If you were on recovery from an Adjective Addiction

then "Good" would stand as an accurate description.

And since I'm coasting on this west coast slippery slope

Using the “totally dopest” ways of boasting

that lift asses of enthusiastic masses off the bleachers.

A girl that has my heart and from the start there was no fearing this.

Finally, I feel so free,

No more anarchy or strings, or clinging to my wishful thinking

everything I want and more, Everything that I adore,

I drove home from Sunday night folk club with a storm over my house in the distance.  The beginning of this came to me.

Leaves and walls and windows spin,

I wonder what we began.


There is no calm centre,

power and colour after.

Blue sea below stormy skies
No one sees bleeding eyes,
Or the pain and the heartache
That keeps me awake
My dreams, all are shattered
My head truely battered 
This pain that I feel.....
Is surely unreal. Surely unreal.
Pierced my armour 
Down goes my shield
Broken defences
Just let me bleed
Just let me bleed
One day you'll regret
The things that you've left.....

The Soul of an Artist

The soul of an artist,

famine or harvest.

An exercise in extremity,

symmetric serenity.


Raw yet crafted

a tool made from bone

fleshed out by interpreting existence.

An exercise in extremity,

A fusion of real and surreal
