A Nightmare Disguised As a Daydream

Those blood red lips

Thick black hair

Mustn’t succumb to temptation

But I’m already there


You’re playing with my heart

Loose and fast

Embroiled in a love story

That can not last


I can’t do anything

But surrender to your eyes

Totally entranced

By the devil in disguise


My exposed emotions

You chop and dice

It’s a living hell

Dressed up as paradise


Release me from your spell

I’m so desperate to live

I’ve bestowed on you my soul

There’s nothing left to give


There were beautiful moments

Played out in the sunshine

It felt like forever

But you’ll never be mine


The dreams I harboured

Descended to dust

But life moves on

As it must


A fragment of time

That should have been ours

You promised me rainbows

But delivered showers

 I Miss Your Roast Dinners

In the game of love

Neither of us came out as winners

I don’t long for those days

But I miss your roast dinners


We often argued

Sometimes lied

But your roast potatoes

Were extra crispy & soft inside


All our dreams

Ended in the trash

But I often think

About your creamy mash


Our strained relationship

Was little more than a sham

But I never stopped loving

Your minted roast lamb


Our time together

Wasn’t a stroll in the park

But we had your gravy

So rich and dark


Divorce is messy

There are no winners

If only I’d got custody

Of your roast dinners

The Heart Never Lies

You can fool your mind

In to many things

To navigate the mediocrity

That life invariably brings


But true feelings

You can’t disguise

Despite your best efforts

The heart never lies


You can quietly give in

Relinquish your soul

But the heart won’t play

An active role


You can dampen the fire

That once burned inside

But your heart will mourn

The dreams that died


If you head down a road

And your heart doesn’t follow

Prepare for an existence

That’s painful and hollow


Life’s easy path

Is a lonely place to roam

Listen to your heart

It will guide you home


Keep on believing

In everything you do

A big brave heart

Will never dessert you


It matters not where you finish

Only that you start

Stare into the eyes of fear

And trust in your heart

One Last Kiss

One last kiss

Then I’ll go

Ever so quickly

Like April snow


Just one last kiss

Nothing more

Let me feel

How I did before


One last caress

Of your lips

Before my heart

Painfully rips


Grant me one last

Romantic endeavour

The kind of kiss

That lasts forever


One last kiss

Then we’re history

Nothing but

A faded memory


One last epic kiss

It’s everything I desire

Take my bruised heart

Set it on fire


You’re the one

I’ll always miss

Forever yearning

One last kiss

Before I Die

Let me live

Before I die

I’m tired of watching

Life pass me by


I can’t go to the grave

With the music still in me

Failing miserably

To fulfil my destiny


I want to visit places

I’ve only seen on TV

Fulfilling dreams

I can no longer see


I want to fall in love

Have my heart set on fire

Be enveloped in a kiss

Laced with passion and desire


I want to party till dawn

In some Nashville bar

Downing tequila

Strumming air guitar


I want to dance

In the purple rain

Feeling liberated

And young again


I want to gorge on burgers

Served with fine wine

With no thought

For my waistline


I want to ride rollercoaster’s

Without shutting my eyes

On fast bendy tracks

Riddled with wonder & surprise


I want to lay down each night

Feeling happy & satisfied

Not always succeeding

But knowing I tried


Before I die, I want a life

Punctuated with beauty

I won’t go to my grave

With the music still in me

  A Nightmare Disguised As a Daydream Those blood red lips Thick black hair Mustn’t succumb to temptation But I’m already there ...
