My type of poetry would best be described as very lyrical; deep; romantic and searching in style. It is full of my observances of ordinary people; personal relationships; of life in general and my own spiritual longing. With regards to my poetic influences, I would have to say that 'Mid-term Break' by Seamus Heaney; 'Do Not go Gentle Into That Good Night' by Dylan Thomas and 'Aedh Wishes for the Clothes of Heaven' by William Butler Yeats have had a a profound effect on me. The lyrical style of Tom Petty; Chris Martin of Coldplay; Anthony Kleidis of Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Gary Jules has also inspired my poetry and lyrics.


FALLING APART IN LOVE WITH YOU If I could, I would tell you how I feel That my love for you is real, But that’s not how I deal with…., boom; thud; boom goes the beating of my heart When you speak…so smart, It makes me fall apart CHORUS Falling apart in love with you, Bones break along with my heart, Crushed slowly by the weight of you, squeezing my soul to impart how it truly feels for you, before you rise up and depart. THE 'FOOL' OF TULLAMORE 'Fool, fool', you'd always say But you were no fool to us, Despite what all others may, Think, I thought you had it sussed, Jimmy, what you made you this way? Unintentionally humorous! Jimmy, you always made our day You were always worth the fuss. 'I just died', was your refrain To anyone you'd meet, Some thought you were insane, Others a sad form of sweet, Jimmy, were you in pain and no one else could see it? Jimmy, will we see you again shuffling down our streets? Copyright by Kenneth Hume
