It’s Sheer Physics, Really


It’s sheer physics, really
The fact that I would love you
The aesthetics & poetics
My heart could only beat this true
It’s not a surprise, really
I’m fascinated with your quintessence
Devotion & adoration
You’ve caused this tumescence


Another Tattoo Won’t Fix Me



Another tattoo won’t fix me
Character flaws will remain intact
Anxiety, depression & the mortgage
Will continue to be undeniable facts
I’ll still be this version of me
But I’ll feel life under my skin
A slow, steady build-up to joy
Creeping up to take charge again

Confidence To Hang In The Shadows


Confidence to hang in the shadows
Not trying to soak up the limelight
Society just wants to destroy its heroes
Refuse to honor them with a fight
You can’t win when they distort the facts
All is fair in love & imaginary wars
I’ll take my dreams & integrity
To live a life worth resisting for
