There.....

 

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! Hurry up! Hurry up!

entry picture

 

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.

I Was Always Sure, Now I Am Not.

entry picture

 

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?

ANGST

 

ANGST

 

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

 

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

 

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,

PLANET

 

PLANET

 

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...

What is more important?

entry picture

 

Two men were asked one question:

What is more important – happiness or health?

The first one answered:

 Certainly happiness!

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!

A Quarrel

entry picture

 

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

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

entry picture

 

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

 

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...

SOUTHERN SONG

 

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

 

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

 

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.

HARD

 

 

HARD

 

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,

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

SCOTLAND

SCOTLAND

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,

MY LITTLE COLD WAR

 

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 ...

VEGA

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.

WAR, PEACE poem

 

NOW, PEACE

 

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...

SHEFFIELD GAL poem

 

SHEFFIELD GIRL

 

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.

Automatics

 

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.

Envy

entry picture

Slowly gliding
upon gentle waters
absorbing warmth
and sunshine
from the sky
 
Tall grass swaying
breezes fluffing
soft feathers
friends land
splashing
and bob for food
 
Startled
from my reverie
by the jangling
of the phone
I turn from
my office window

Sighing as the boss
calls my name
surprised
I realize
that a mallard

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...

THINK poem

THINK
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 ...

Can't Be Indifferent

 

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.

Sleeping too much,

Thinking about the spaces

Hiding between words

With eyes wide shut,

Navigating those long

Corridors and buying

Clothes from empty

On us, and we rub 

At our eyes, trying

Our Mistakes

entry picture

 

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...

Tomorrow will be April.

Hearts will be struck by the love arrow,

So, what to do now?

Don’t let your feelings to crease!

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;

My Way

 

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,
