FRIENDSHIP

entry picture

 

 

 

Some Friends are necessary for life. 
As the air.  As the water and food
Those friends, help us, to survive 
In our hearts running, same as blood 

 

They offer faithful trusted advice
And always keep the shining smile
Show satisfaction pureily, so nice
Have bounties tool, deeply as Nile

 

They never get argument to complain
They ever look for the cheerful talk to ...

The Void

Hey there lonely girl,

what are you doing wandering around

these dark places?

Don’t you know that 

evil lurks about? 

The void is littered

with those who will use you,

abuse you,

scar your soul for eternity. 

Listen to my pleas,

I’m begging on bended knees,

move forward

towards the light,

no matter how tempting

the mysterious

shadows may be.

love is not

love is not 

 

love is not possession

love is not obsession

nor is it dissolution

of the self except in fleeting

moments of passion

 

love is not fixing

love is not needy 

love is not forcing

unwanted gifts

nor demanding reciprocity 

 

love is not being half

nor dependency

love is no debt 

nor a prison of

all consuming exclusivity

Be infinitely infinite into infinity

I’m a cycle

I’m a circle

I’m a forever

I’m always

Casting shadows on myself

Packing silver on the shelves

Plus! Plus! Plus! Plus!

I’m infinity

Maths was never my forte

You cannot minus or divide me

I’m a forever

I’m always

Smiling when the moon comes

Smelling for when Monday runs

I was reborn, refreshed

I can be ironed and pressed

Good as new

I’m ...

It all depends on Something

It All Depends On Something

 

It all depends on something,

On that you can depend.

Things start at the beginning,

And they finish at the end.

 

You don’t know until you know,

How anything will conclude.

So don’t try to jump the gun

To find answers that elude.

 

Take one hour at a time

And each troubled day by day.

Cross each bridge only when

The river’s...

Advice to a poet

Take your time

Don't just try to rhyme

Put meaning into every line

No, it doesn't have to come out right

Just write

It's fine

Every piece reviewed and refused can later be renewed 

Break it down and then stick it together with crazy glue

Don't mind if they call you crazy - you

You are an idealist in the realist eyes

But they fail to realize

Reality is dynamic

BACON BUTTY

 

The advice comes from everywhere

The 'Spin Doctors' getting bolder

With lots of little anecdotes

To stop us getting older

 

So read it, take it all on board

You don't want any grief

Two minutes a day is all it takes

For you to floss your teeth

 

Two minutes hopping on each leg

"It's so good for the hip"

Where the hell does that come from?

It makes me wan...

Chapter 22: Girl, Can I Tell You A Wonderful Thing?

entry picture

She looked at me with those green eyes

Gentle eyes that told a story of hard trials

Stories yet to unfold,

Tales that must be retold

 

She said, By the time I was your age

I’d give anything to fall in love

That’s when I met the man of my dreams

My knight in shining armor

 

So many days we awaken to morning blues

Making love under the sunrise

With passion within ...

Advice

How prolific your profundity,

To see what others cannot see,

To relate your divine acuity,

To take the time to talk to me,

To advise advice altruistically,

To lower yourself to charity,

To solicit unsolicited graciously,

To presumably pontificate pompuosly 

To offer two red cents for free.
