There …where the taste of silence is strange and forgotten,
There ... where the pastel sky floats and is underfoot,
There ...where the streets are shivering in a foggy mood.
They need snow.
There … where the face of Earth is changing the poles,
There … where some kilometers of the rain are endless
There... where the ships kiss t...

Hurry up to fall in love!
Be surprised how beautiful it is!
Hurry up to speak of love!
Realize that these words can anyone please.
To give yourself to others –
What happiness it is!
All people are sisters and brothers
Take care of friendship, please!
Don’t hide the feelings of admiration!
It’s a foundation of love creation.
Use your brai...

I was always sure that….
Tomorrow will come.
I’ve heard it from my mum.
That was in old days.
Today those bright rays
Happened to be in a haze.
Today I am a little bit confused.
My childish insurance is reduced.
I am not sure in tomorrow.
I thank God if it doesn’t bring me sorrow.
I’ve stopped looking for the truth.
What’s the use?

To be a Goth, do I have to suffer so? Have loneliness burn into my soul, sadness fill my heart, loss bring me to my knees?
All I have is my life and a few songs to help me by in this endless grey world of mine,
no Goth girl to save me, no real escape from this morose existence to gain ascendancy to the heavens.
A soul mate I yearn for, to escape the barest mini...

I am tired to hear your lies.
I am tired to love tired eyes.
I don’t want to listen to your cries.
I would love you to be... a bit more wise.
Or it could be better to say it like this:
I’m fed up to listen to lies,
I’m fed up to love tired eyes,
I don’t want to argue any more,
I’ll better new lands explore.

NUCLEAR-ARMED ANGELS WINGS
It’s hard to leave you all behind
all those times we laughed together,
once my friends but now no more.
All the special girls gone for good,
“Yes I’ll love you forever more”—
now just an aching memory.
Where are they now?
Do they think of me or block me out?
If only I could say sorry to those I’ve hurt,
turn the cloc...

Strange lights in the sky tell that something is wrong.
The continents are shifting and our planet is dying
in her ageless agony.
When the world splits open we will all perish
in Armageddon, but a new beginning will finally come.
It will take so long, maybe fifty million years
but who then will inherit the earth?
How long can man really stay he...

Two men were asked one question:
What is more important – happiness or health?
The first one answered:
Another one said:
I would be glad if I had health,
I would change it for all my wealth.
Do you ask me why?
Here is my reply:
You know, some days ago,
I have, at last, met my happiness.
But….Damn! Damn! Damn!
I don’t wa...

After a morning quarrel with his wife
A husband has got a terrible life.
After work, coming back home,
He finds a warning syndrome.
It’s a note lying on the table:
Honey, I think you are able to heat up the food,
Today I am in a bad mood,
So, to cheer me up I went to my friend
To watch the film with a happy end.
The food is already on the stove.

You only feel lonely when you’re in a crowd
Say you need peace and quiet then turn the music up loud
Only feel let down when you’re being held up
Say you’re okay, and then almost erupt
Only feel my presence when I’m far away
Only say go, when you want me to stay.
You speak words of wisdom and act like a fool
Set high standards for others, then break every rule

You know, it often happens that…
People love one another.
They give love to each other in return.
In love affection they both burn.
It also happens that love is cut off
By someone’s an invisible measure.
That measure just scoffs,
Forgetting that love is a treasure.
It happens…love is boiling of passion
And someone becomes the universe.

I’ve learnt to understand that….
A prohibitive degree of inner freedom –
Not a caprice but a strain.
Up to the end it will remain!
I’ve learnt to understand that….
The tales we dream up
We write out of our own head.
And…. we should cherish that!
I’ve learnt to break up the rules,
So that no one should be hurt.
Using my own tools,

EYE FOR AN EYE
So tell me, is it because I dared to do what I wasn’t meant to
that you turned against me?
Having feelings for my sworn enemy, doing the thing I was sworn
not to, my love turning me a traitor to my cause,
my religion and all my beliefs?
The way the cards fall are often the strangest hand of all.
To save an enemy from the grave, her grave,

I live in the desert on my own little farm near the damn secret airbase where they do their testing. My grandpa saw your nuclear tests in the 50s shook our walls and gave him cancer. I sued the government and got $36,000 a fortune back then. Re-vamped this old farm and met a girl who worked at the base, her car broke down on the road and she became my wife. She ha...

I’m one of the boys; I’m one of them who lives in my southern English town of Witches’ Elbow.
We just love it in our quaint little town by the sea, we chill out on the beach on the long summer nights, drinking warm beer and making love on the sand dunes knowing these moments will last forever.
I’m originally from the north and moved to Witches’ Elbow coz I ...

THE TRAGEDY OF SONG
She sings in such hushed vocal tones one second,
then she shatters glass in an attack of tragic beauty the next.
The truths and traumas of life seem so real and painful when her voice glides over them,
after all, isn’t this the life that you and I and her live?
We are all in the same boat on this rough ocean at the mercy of the gale.

PASSENGERS OF LIFE
You’re a passenger of life livin’ out your remainin’ days on borrowed time.
You stick two fingers up to the world, life for you is not an oasis but it’s a charred blackened shell.
You steal from anyone to feed your dirty habit, as you slowly deteriorate in your own little hell.
When they find you dead in your bath, a load of needles by your side, w...

Every generation has its own hard men
who rule the block, kick the new kids ass’s.
Who rule every bar, don’t take no for an answer,
are not to be messed with and demand respect.
They use the weapons of their trade, knives,
brass knuckles, guns, bats and more.
Take them away and their fists are a back up,
sure fire way of defence, offence.

LOVE IS DEAD
So it is time, love is dead, I have no girl only desolate loneliness
spreading out inside me, sadness leaving tears beyond belief
in this dark hour of my blackness. Mental instability threatens
my very existence, brings trauma and flashbacks, past into focus,
fight as I might. Breaking down to cry in anger at my own loneliness,
find a knife in my...

I know a girl who is such a babe.
She walks down the street looking really cool,
not caring who looks at her ample curves.
You can’t have her coz she is mine
but I don’t mind you looking
but please don’t touch.

Scotland, beautiful land, land of the sky, clouds
hugging your mountains, mist in the glens.
Deep black lochs full of mystery and monsters,
age-old secrets for very few to find.
Everyone can see the beauty of this land,
next to England but a million miles away.
Once we were enemies but now friends,
a country with so many moods and colours,
the sky, timeless in her gaz...

MY LITTLE COLD WAR
My mate sent some song lyrics to me, by some band. I read them after reading my story on my nuclear armed stealth jet being used in anger. I’m trying to make sense of the cold war I grew up in now, so many years later. It’s so crazy. The younger kids have no idea but my mate does, he’s only 21 but he tries to understand what it was like growing up under the shadow ...

I see what you do to your fellow man, bombing him with weapons that obliterate him and destroy all before it. No mercy at all. You get told to do, when to pull the trigger or to push the button, if you refuse then you die. Think what you do to women and kids, they can’t experience life.
Their freedom whipped away, a candle flame snuffed out. Men of other nations go to stop yo...

I’ve been on an eight mile hike with my mate, getting out of town.
Up roads, to the Waterworks to give a witch my Amelia Earhart spell.
Venturing through farmer’s fields, over dry stone walls and under barbed wire fences. ...

Peace across the skies, across the continent, for now.
Across all those people, all those faces, all those minds and lives.
Many millions died for that peace, now only fragmented memories
gone forever, forgotten by this generation but remembered by
God and Satan. All the blood has dried into the cracked earth and
the guns are silent as we trust our...

She is the girl from Sheffield who turns heads wherever she goes.
Her name is Anne and she is a uni girl, into bands and cheap student beer.
I met her on the bus while she was going gigging; she invited me along
and away we went to see the next big thing. At that moment I knew she’d
be mine, this raven haired girl from a foreign place unknown.

Aliens don’t care about our plight, if you live or die, nah they don’t give a fuck. See a man shot dead, UFO could have zapped the shooter and stopped it. Grey aliens abducting drug dealers before they sell their evil drugs, not gonna happen!
What to do next? Ask the US president to do a protocol with aliens to stop crime on earth, would it actually work? What do we do? Do ...

MEN AND MACHINES AND GIRLS
I want to die in a machine and get my limbs crushed and my blood thrown upon burning metal and to die, to die, TO DIE!! I don’t fit into this world, no day job moving shit brown boxes from A2B in a warehouse, no long term girlfriend to love me and be there for me when I feel down, few real mates to back me up balls to the wall.
See on TV speeding bikes w...

Sitting with shutter eyes,
Thinking of all the left behind
Children sleeping in the park,
Biting their lips and wondering
What a warm house smells like.
That double-glazing man walks
Around the house again,
And I think about all those
Men walking round in circles,
In places they’ve never been.
And the warm feeling sl...

All he ever wanted to do was to improve his life, make a better life for himself and not be a lazy freeloader. Certain people thought he'd never make it; this view rubbed off on him through time and really depressed him. He was determined to show them they were wrong, that he wasn't lazy and could prove something to first himself, then them and finally the world.

upon gentle waters
from the sky
Tall grass swaying
and bob for food
from my reverie
by the jangling
of the phone
I turn from
my office window
Sighing as the boss
calls my name

In the belly of the beast, dwelling within where the monster can't get to me, I'm safe for now. Will the beast stir and sense me inside? Find me and pull me out of his gut? Am I Jonah inside the whale? Safe or ask risk? Time will tell. Thinking I'm going to be free when I'm out there in the world, my world keeps me a pri...

Do you want to renounce violence against other people on a personal scale and on an international level, where countries are bombed and shelled? This isn’t good, people are injured and die. Think what happens if I hit someone and kill him with one punch, this does happen. If a mortar falls and kills a dozen people in a busy market place.
What does it solve? Each person has a relative ...

Young French woman is very pregnant and about to give birth to a baby. She lives in a remote area so the air ambulance helicopter is called, a state of the art Eurocopter with a highly trained crew. Modern helicopter and trained crew, they know what they’re doing. Pick up the girl to take her to hospital, arrive in style in a cool chopper. Time moves on exceedingly fast, medic ab...

Honest people can’t be indifferent
To the satiation in Great Britain.
I was just smitten
By the news in the net.
The jet of vandalism has met with …
Was it a debt, which was kept….?
Can’t say where and in what,
But …some people forgot:
Democracy of our society
Looks like who is more mighty.
Alien war. Is it really an alien?
The human beings are ...

if we looked at history
on a multi-plane spreadsheet
and compared the goings on
in each particular era
we shall find that at any given
period, no matter the advancement
there inevitably at a cost lay revealed
atrocities, genocides, discrimination
prejudices, and a lack of conscience
that marks the brute in humans
poets have also been present
ever alert on the front-lin...

Sleeping too much,
Thinking about the spaces
Hiding between words
And trying to get
But it comes
With eyes wide shut,
Navigating those long
Corridors and buying
Clothes from empty
It beats down
On us, and we rub
At our eyes, trying
To see through those

How often we make mistakes
And lose those who are dear.
We go to those who our hearts break,
Do not notice the only one who is near.
Trying to catch somebody's fancy
We run away from the nearest one.
Forgetting your fiancée
The betrayal was done.
We run to the one who once has left us,
We ask that one again for help.
As a result we see j...

But seldom speak about it.
But much tender as before.
But a bit more careful.
And with each day much more.
But not for everyone to see.
And my love is a glee.
And I will never regret.
And I will never forget
Those beautiful sunrises,
Those innocent lies,

What will be tomorrow?
Tomorrow will be April.
Hearts will be struck by the love arrow,
They will not be stable.
So, what to do now?
Is it just natures caprice?
Allow your feelings be somehow avowed!
Don’t let your feelings to crease!
Look for the truth in the gentleness of spring!
Ding, ding! Listen to the bells ring!
Forget the trouble...

When I found the time to be
I found that time had passed me by
When my dreams had set me free
Life set its bounds upon the sky
Should my spirit soar above,
My wings the blazing sun would pluck
Should my soul find love
You'd find my cards had no such luck
And though we know the end,
we jump into the cloudy veil;
we quest for dreams, though bound;
the seekers' hearts will thus preva...

My heart was closed
What a way to be
But that was me
Tuesday 8th March 2011 3:40 pm
I go my way night and day.
Sometimes I doubt and want to shout,
Can’t sleep at night and….
Not so sure if I was right.
But I go my way night and day
With the alarms and worries,
With the flurries and hurries,
More often with beautiful sunny days,
Sometimes with colds and rains.
But in the distance I see the dawn,
It illuminates my life and my dreams...

Life is the sun in the day time.
Life is the beautiful chime.
Life is the moon and the stars at night.
Life is the birds flight.
Life is the mountains you climb.
Life is to share the last dime.
Life is a tale, a big surprise.
All around look so nice!
But if you see life in different way
With only dirt and violence
And don’t hear the silence,
Thursday 3rd March 2011 7:18 pm
the balm of barometric exuberance.
no longer young, dissipates.
the dewy welcome of sun-quaffed green.
revive severed umbilical dreams.
the present with fleeting acumen.
ceases yet emerges again tomorrow.
the kindling of autumnal reticence.
