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Superseded only by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

Pizza



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



Heartbreakingly

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

If…..Laced With Love



If you can dream with no ceiling

Soar without wings

Experience the wondrous feeling

Liberation brings



If you can recognise value

Nor covet material possessions

Bestow respect when due

Accepting faults and transgressions



If you can follow your heart

When the naysayers scream no

Even when it tears you apart

You’re a hero



If you can dance through the darkness

Creating your rainbow

Brighter days, no less

Are destine to follow



If you can navigate life

Retaining the enthusiasm of a child

Amidst both serenity and strife

Radiating grace so mild



If you can make love with searing passion

But not lust after the forbidden

Kiss in the most enthusiastic fashion

Displaying emotions once hidden



If you can treat people as equals without exception

Staying humble, regardless of wealth

Whilst resisting the urge to profit from deception

Upholding morals dear to oneself



If you can offer solace to a stranger

In the midst of their darkest hour

Shield society’s vulnerable from danger

Fuelled by love’s power



If you can counter with kind acts

In the face of unflinching hate

Ignore rumour in favour of facts

Let happiness be your fate



If you can tolerate the merchants of misery

Whilst spreading seeds of hope

Enriching souls aching to be free

With the strength to cope



If you can walk in another man’s shoes

Without judgement or cruel tongue

Be considerate with your views

To those you exist among



If you can sing with swallows

At first morning light

Cherishing what follows

Glorious day, majestic night



If you can love like there’s no tomorrow

Without hindrance of regret

Despite the spectre of sorrow

You’ll find your sunset



If you can walk with dignified restraint

In the shadow of death

No utterance of compliant

Until your final breath



If you can muster the strength to smile

When inside, your heart is breaking

Just hold on my friend for a while

This beautiful world is yours for the taking.

The Kiss



Tip of the heart

Gateway to the soul

Lips play a part

In making us whole



A delicate touch

The subtlest caress

Means so much

Its heavenliness



When hopelessly in love

They’re impossible to ration

Like stars up above

Laced with passion



It takes but a moment

But can last forever

A Gloriously potent

Paradisiacal endeavour



A wondrous feeling

Magical to find

Heads floating, hearts reeling

Lovers entwined



Lost in a fantastical reality

Inhabited by two

Far removed from normality

But deliciously true



Once it ends

You ache like never before

But the heart never mends

If the body craves more



No other act

Encapsulates such beauty

Should never be matter of fact

Or performed out of duty



Sometimes ever so tender

Or delivered with lustful aggression

Recipient or sender

The ultimate expression



Kissing your lover

With raging desire

A feeling like no other

Perpetual fire



In its absence I contemplate

The emotion I’ll miss

I’ll forever celebrate

The majesty of a kiss

She Smiles With Her Eyes



Dark and alluring

She smiles with her eyes

I can’t help but stare

And fantasise



Her blood red lips

I long to kiss

Lost in her gaze

Eternal bliss



Her mere presence

Makes my day

Hopelessly lost

In a gorgeous way



The slightest glance

Causes my heart to pound

Its all sunshine and rainbows

When she’s around



Effortlessly sparkling

Like a diamond in the sunlight

Can’t help but dream

Of holding her tight



Dripping with beauty

So easy to adore

I have her friendship

But ache for more



Each rare moment together

Is mine to cherish

Savouring seconds

That ultimately perish



To always love her

Is my destiny

Impossible to fight

I’ll just let it be.



Trapped in paradise

My future holds no surprise

Because I’m in love

With the woman who smiles with her eyes

Healing



In a world scared by greed

Execs bank balances getting fatter

It takes something devastating

For society to realise, its people that matter



If only we’d listened to our consciences

And Huey Lewis and the news

Spread love or hate

You’re free to choose



Standing amongst the ruins

Of a fearful nation

We can only survive

Through love and consideration



Maybe the world can’t be healed

But we have to try

Live with purpose

Until the day you die



This is our moment

To hit pause and rewind

Harness the enduring power of human spirit

For the good of all mankind



The music is playing my friends

Have you the heart to be a dancer?

If we’re going to change this world

Then love and only love is the answer.

You arrived with the freshness of April showers
A hedonistic mix of hearts and flowers
I didn't know I was lost, until you saved me
Now I love you more than crunchy roast potatoes and gravy

During life's unrelenting storm
With your big old heart
You keep me warm
Now I know
You're my rainbow

If my life's a fish
That makes you the batter
Amidst this frenetic circus
You've shown me it's people that matter

This is a poem I composed and read out at my daughters wedding. I hope you like it:-


Easy to give

Wonderful to receive

Forever enduring

Love never flatters to deceive



No requirement for riches

Or price to pay

Eternal sunshine

On an idyllic day



Devoid of weakness

Love has the power

To drag us through

Our darkest hour



It can warm the heart

Of the coldest soul

In a life well lived

Love plays the starring role



Always humble

Without heirs and graces

Love finds shelter

In the most desperate places



When our minds become consumed

With regret and fear

Hold on

Love is near



Our strength

Hope & energy

For the happiness we crave

Love is the key



At the end

When the oceans run dry

And the last star

Inhabiting Gods sky



Burns out up above



They’ll still be love




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