Teaching bad children
Guys you have to keep
Your hands out of your pants
And you can’t watch porn
During school hours
And I agree with your
Of our colleagues but
I don’t want to undermine them
And please don’t call me after work
They’ll think I’m a child molester
But I do love you it’s just that
I’m supposed to be a cop

The crowded, seaside town of Cardiff holds a secret.
Kelly Shaw has the perfect life working as a navigator in the city and running with her witty boyfriend, Philly Woo.
However, when she finds an enchanted torch in her cellar, she begins to realise that things are not quite as they seem in the Shaw family.
A birthday party leaves Kelly with some startling questions about her past, and sh...

The acting lover
When I was fifteen and a galley boy on a ship
The cook was over the top gay and couldn’t
Help to pick up some of is manner like smoking
Slim cigarettes and waving my arms around.
Many women thought I was gay which was a bonus

They succeeded every time and we're happy this
Had saved me in time this ploy worked until...

I'm gonna talk about a woman who I can only describe as my world my universe

I wish you could hear the music of my loving heart
The nerves are blasting and thirsting for your touch
Deep inside you I am falling like the great Niagara
The cosmic connections just ain’t building to burst
Slowly the wishes are swirling around the fire of love
Encircling to taste the very breath of your breathing heart
I just wanna be the air that you breathe
I just wanna be...

Are You Happy Where you Are?
Are you happy where you are
Friendships all OK ?
Or are things a bit rocky
With things you need to say ?
Are you happy where you are
Does me-first niggle you ?
Is empathy part of your psych
Or is this missing too ?
Are you happy where you are
No secrets left inside ?
Or are there some still some lurking there

Que son mis favoritos
No los cierres nunca

Respiro tu aroma
Y en las nubes me recuesto.

(Confessions of a man with little honour. But you get it while you can)
I used to turn up on them marches
Arms linked with the Trotskyist host
But now I tune in to the Archers
“Them as lives longest learns most”.
I wore all my badges and labels
The shouts and the slogans and words
I learned them just like my times tables
But really I went for the birds.

What mask should I wear today
Happy to beat sad, colours to beat grey
A mask to trick, a mask to decieve
A web of lies is easy to weave
A new face of confidence, free of fear
Laid on thick, so no cracks appear
Cracks like desperation, depression and pain
Covered with false confidence, it's a task to maintain
We all rely on our masks, to protect and to hide
Frightened, embarrassed, to sho...

When our tears, we seem unable to control.
Remember Heaven awaits for our lost soul.
They are at peace and rest, a stranger to pain.
We cry long at our loss, but it’s Heaven’s gain.
Paradise awaits those who deserve it most.
And we will meet again, when God is our host.
But for now the reason God gave us a heart.
Is to fill it with memories if loved ones depart.

What do you see

I long to give to you

Do you understand

It's like the whole world is new

What prompted me to compose,
Pen down the lines after so many days!
Perhaps I owe it to her – all my happiness;
Realized after so many days!
Her eyes aren’t just eyes, my desires flourished;
She scaled after so many days!
The pen stained in the her memory penned everything,
Magically itself after so many days!
Misunderstood phases vanished, mistakes abandoned;

And the toes treated against regrowth.

I would move heaven and earth for the child!

If it was your son,
you’d want to know why,
What was on his mind?
Could it be predicted?
If he became the source of a statistic often quoted,
of a crime doubled up, year upon year,
I think you’d want to know.
Or would you veer away?
Never ask yourself why
he reacted in that way.
Did you raise your voice too often
in his formative years,

Camouflage in place,
Keeping a low profile
From the rat race.

our faces are identical.

Beat me about the head

Words that nag and push me around

Assaulting my senses
Lying dormant for a time
