Poetry Blogs (2019, music)
Staring too long into the looking glass,
trying to predict the future and
make sense of the past.
Time goes by lightning fast.
Poetry sets the cast.
Call it dreaming...
cartwheels on high wires,
living, laughing, loving
singing, no regrets.
Drink every drop of life,
before God rays
absorb the wake
and your soul sails

Don’t give in to the madness.
Save it for another day,
long after you’ve left this life
that’s full of opportunities.
Life is like the weather.
All you have to do is wait
for the rain to go away,
the storm to pass,
and enjoy the sunshine

Look at you go girl.
Swimming in our veins,
straight to the soul.
No sweet lullabies
or sugar-coated lies.
Wielding words of a survivor,
who has been around the block a time or two.
No one is getting anything over on you.
You have mastered
turned pain into power,
helping us forget
our worries by the hour.

God bless the good days.
Days a smile is no stranger to your face.
Days your favorite songs play, and you sing along.
Days faith is restored in humanity.
Days sunshine and fresh air makes life seem fair.
Days you feel the gentle touch of love.
Good days will see you through tough days,
bitter days that never seem to end,
days you have no friends,

Sometimes when musicians finish
A piece that has gone well, they let out a
Combination sigh and laugh that
Expresses relief and pure joy.
It’s the same laugh you hear from
Women who have had a satisfying
Orgasm, enhanced by a slight tinge
Of guilt for being unduly blessed.
Of course, these laughs are never
Unwarranted. In both cases,
Substantial effort is required
To produce an even...

I drink of you often
in my day dreams
about night things.
When I'm lost and alone,
you soothe my soul
with your sweet melody
that dances on the wind
and carries me
to a faraway place
where love never ends.

Beautiful how you're glistening
Beautiful my mahogany
I love the way you sound to me
I love the way you make me free
Smooth on top I start to groove
Smooth on top your maple wood
Sounds that always make me move
Sounds just like my childhood
Smells like amps and old gear
Smell the old speakers where I am near
Tastes like sex and cheap old beer
Tastes like celebrating on New Year
Ode to ...

Through my life I’ve collected voices
maybe twice a decade a new singer comes to me
and I can’t let it pass by
without holding tight
Through the years certain songs seem magnetic, somehow
whole albums written in a style I know too well
for it to be coincidence
and I have to hold it close
When Joni sings of ‘skating away’
something jumped out of the speakers
and Leonard says a ‘highwa...

By Pen or by Keys
He teases his words
Completely in tune
With the moment
Symphony of seconds
An Eternal Echo

I wasn't born in 1969
but when i hear the music i feel just fine
that infectious Jamaican brassy beat
with my docs on i start to move my feet
what is this music i hear you calling from afar?
that my friend is Bluebeat or two tone ska
the braces are on, am shaving my hair
working on that rudeboy stare
but tonight they be no fights
as i'm out there jamming to the skatilites!

O Mozart 's music fills me with delight,
And just like the Sun it is shining as bright.
It brings me contentment and with peace and calm
To my mind it acts as a beautiful balm.
It is all lovely and wonderfully moving,
So resplendent and incredibly soothing.
In his works we see how his genius shows
And by it we hear how it all perfectly flows
He began to compose as...

All of Beethoven's music I truly adore.
It is something I have to come back to for more.
It reaches my soul more than anything else,
And it comforts my heart when I am by myself.
In his music he shares every part of his life.
He gives us great strength when once there was strife.
He shows the triumph of his spirit over adversity
In remarkable sonatas, concertos and sympho...

Your fingers strummed the strings of your guitar in a lazy, sleepy pattern as my consciousness began to drift
I inched as close to you as possible, molding my bones to yours as I seamlessly carved for myself a place at your side
Space was a silly idea, a concept at that moment we would never need to consider, should never consider
You played on as we laid together, my chest rising and falling a...

monsters under the bed,
voices in your head.
rainy days, lonely nights,
the blame game.

I've been asking myself a question, lately
About what it is that I want
Because when I look inside myself
I see no aspirations of fame
No want for success
Instead I see the plates of food I fixed
The worn pages of books I've read
I see a bright day and tall clouds
The wind blowing the pollen
The sunlight cutting through
I see trees gnarled and thick, muddy paths...

My heart aches, and clouds hold fast my mind
Thought still I hear
The silence of the waves
The silence of their Siren pull
wash like hemlock through my senses
Their echoes crashing on my island shore
Returning to the sea
Their hushed harmony
Foams surging up my beaches
A descant imprinted on my strand
Whispering back to the squalls

One of my favorite games
to play as a child
was seeing shapes
in the clouds:
It was one of the
of my childhood.
As I grew up,
I began to see
Now in the archway
of my golden years,
I see beauty that
brings me to tears:

Don't look the other way
the view can take me from you.
It's all written there
what we chasing..
Now it's the other way
don't let me fall from there.
The moment that we wanted
I am not worried
I am not worried
I am never worried
I am never worried
time is still fading
i swear it's true..
Ten thousand miles away
your shadow is danci...

Take your pills
bury them somewhere,
on a road
that leads to nowhere,
like leafs on the ground.
Melt your swett
drope it around me,
turn the radio gatter the fallen stars,
bring your february
we have no money,
close your eyes
lay upon me,
the whole world
is what we are trying to forget.
we have no problems
get your things

with a bullet in hands
with a smile on her face
with eyes full of betrail
she walks down the hill
this night is'nt fair
you just can't compare
your eyes with the grail
And she walks
with a bullet in hands
and eyes full of betrail.
they're just a silver
And she hates
her steps in the sand
and her crown has...

Take your every step you've walked,
pretend you walk a mile from here
and go again
Show me how'd you get so far,
show me your forgotten call
and i'll be there...
Building up your silhouettes
building up your silhouettes
and going out again.
Take your dreams and fake them right,
fake them right once in a while
and walk away.
All you are is step in time,
dust is grey and rain is...
