Love Heroin

I’ve taken love heroin

But can’t feel it again

The music has faded

Leaving nothing but pain

The memory of your touch

I’ll forever miss

Superseded only by

The beauty of your kiss

I’m still craving

One last shot

Another taste of love

The only dream I’ve got

The ghost of you

Lays strewn across my heart

Shackled by the past

Aching for a fresh start

My dose of love heroin

Gifted paradise and more

Oh God, please let me feel

The way I did before

What Lies Over My Rainbow

Life is unpredictable

That much we know

But I can’t help but wonder

What lies over my rainbow

It’s a little unnerving

I have to confess

Will it be cloaked with failure

Or garnished with success

Will I find contentment

In the eyes of another

Drenched in beauty

A dark haired gorgeous lover

Will I fly among the stars

Dance on the moon

Strutting my stuff

To some funky Prince tune

Will I walk among angels

Dine lavishly with kings

Accepting gracefully

The fortune life brings

If seduced by riches

Capable of tearing me apart

Will I retain the values

I hold close to my heart

Will I muster the courage to battle

Demons that lie in wait

Rage against the establishment

Or simply accept my fate

Will I be driven by passion

Until I meet my end

Live without loss of enthusiasm

And crazy beautiful love, my friend

Heart in a Hurricane

With you I’m in real danger

Of experiencing great pain

One glance and it feels like

My hearts caught in a hurricane

The touch of your hand

Sends my head into a spin

Trying to avoid falling too hard

A battle I can’t win

Impossible to function

With you always on my mind

But a love so beautiful

I’m lucky to find

I want to live out my days

With you by my side

Creating a paradise

We can run to and hide

Lay down beside me darling

And hold me tight

Bestowing your burning love

All through the night

You’re the fantastical forever

I’ve searched my whole life for

If we can have tomorrow

I’ll love you even more

I love pizza

Almost as much as you

Especially pepperoni

With mushrooms too

On our first date

We ate a Dominos

Shared on one plate

I paid, you chose

Over the years

We’ve scoffed our fair share

Through triumph and tears

Pizza’s always been there

Saturday night

A knock on the door

Two boxes of delight

We’re eager to explore

Leftover slices in bed

Sunday morning treats

Happy and well fed

In tomato stained sheets

During your pregnancy

Peanut butter and chorizo

It wasn’t for me

But I gave it a go

When feeling adventurous

I’m straight on the phone

Selecting toppings I trust

For a create your own

You love deep pan

I prefer a thin crust

We cook when we can

But in pizza we trust

If push comes to shove

Even though it tastes so nice

For you, the one I love

I’d give my last slice

The Frog & Toad

There was a young frog

Who fell in love with a toad

He spotted one morning

By the side of the road

My names Freddie

He casually said

But she didn’t reply

Rolling her eyes instead

Undeterred, he smiled

Requesting with glee

Her company

For afternoon tea

The toad shrugged her shoulders

Having nothing to say

Much to the smitten frog’s

Utter dismay

But Freddie wasn’t ready

To simply give in

Countering her coolness

With a gormless grin

What’s your name?

He nervously muttered

It’s Angel

She softly uttered

Wow, that’s beautiful

Freddie gushed

Turning crimson

Angel blushed

All of a sudden

This confident guy

Felt all at sea

And frightfully shy

Mustering all his courage

Freddie gave it one last try

Putting his heart on the line

In hope of a positive reply

We could hop to the beach

And lounge in the sun

But Angel shook her head

At the mention of such fun

Freddie was distraught

And exasperated too

There must be something

Angel wants to do

I know said Freddie

What about the fair

Hop on my back

I’ll take you there


No reaction

A flustered Freddie

Can’t get no satisfaction

Pizza, Cinema

Maybe a boat ride

Scrabble, Monopoly

My goodness, he tried

Angel he pleaded

Is there anywhere you want to go

She pointed to the sky and said

Take me over the rainbow

Freddie gulped

But couldn’t say no

So off they hopped

Chasing down the rainbow

Through lush green valleys

Over meandering streams

Went Angel and Freddie

In search of their dreams

It was wild and exciting

Not knowing what they’d find

On fire with freedom

And adventure in mind

They chased it all day

With boundless vigour

But it never got nearer

Or appeared any bigger

Eventually they stopped and took a moment

To admire the beauty they stood under

Holding hands, they looked up

Marvelling at its wonder

Then all of a sudden

To their dismay and surprise

The rainbow faded away

Right in front of their eyes

Fearing he had let Angel down

Freddie dropped his head and cried

It doesn’t matter that we didn’t get there

Said Angel, I just love it that you tried

Then she leant over to Freddie

Imparting the softest kiss

His heart swelled with love

Life doesn’t get more beautiful than this

Freddie has found his forever

At the end of the rainbow

Regardless of what life throws

He’ll never let her go

Life can be wonderful

It has to be said

This morning Freddie was all alone

Now he’s loving Angel instead.

Those Red Heels

Hard to explain

Just how it feels

Drives me insane

When you wear those red heels

That sexy strut

Oozes style

With nothing but

A mischievous smile

Smooth black tights too

Its way beyond nice

Keep doing what you do

I’m in paradise

Can’t tear my eyes away

Fight this godly attraction

Amidst an ordinary day

You’re a spectacular distraction

I’m walking a line

Between desire and duty

This old heart of mine

Can’t absorb such beauty

You’ll forever be a fantasy

In those red heels

Even though we’ll never be

I love how it feels

My Heart

You hold my heart

Treat it as your own

From the start

It’s been yours alone

Since that first glance

It beats only for you

Bursting with romance

For a love so true

The touch of your hand

It pounds so strong

Not hard to understand

It’s saying we belong

Embossed with your name

Swollen with desire

Never felt the same

Since you set it on fire

When we’re apart

My lonely heart aches

They’ll only ever be you

To ensure it never breaks

Each and every night

A feeling my heart adores

As you hold me tight

And it beats close to yours

Love Heroin I’ve taken love heroin But can’t feel it again The music has faded Leaving nothing but pain The m...
