Sitting With Pirates & Thieves

 

Sitting with pirates & thieves

But you’re wandering about the old oak tree

You know you can never go home

Wishing for a life when you weren’t so free

You sold your precious soul

But there’s nothing left to retrieve

You’ll spend your ending days

Dying with those pirates & thieves

I’m Not A Fancy Poet

file-nov-19-06-37-53

I’m not a fancy poet
I don’t have a soul patch nor a beret
Within the confines of each breath
Trying to create a literary bouquet
I merely write how I feel
Without thought to how I’m perceived
No time for such arbitrary notions
True to myself, I know I’ve achieved

Let Us Survive These Dog Days

Let us survive these dog days
The warmth still rising up to a boil
I’d rather be walking down the beach
But I’m forced to relentlessly toil
I wish to be holding your hand
As we walk in the evening’s glow
Soft words filled with eternal promises
For your love is the last I’ll ever know

The Truth Will Come Out

The truth will come out
No matter how smart your suit
The dapper gentleman smirks
While the intelligent man remains mute
You can add all your security details
But the shadows know how to silently hide
You can announce your own loyalties
But you’ll never truly know who’s on your side
The night is behold to nothing tangible
So, keep your secrets & allow them to theirs
You are stronger than they care to acknowledge
Keep a weather eye ahead; don’t meddle in their affairs

You’re My Suzy Homemaker

You’re my Suzy Homemaker
Always baking delicious things
Caring for the family’s every need
But I’ll tie you up with those apron strings
You need to be reminded of my desire
That you’re a woman, first & foremost
Tonight you’ll be pampered & cherished
You’ll come to know pleasure & I’ll be your host

Staring Into A Blank Page

Staring into a blank page
Where can we take this from here
Will you support an unattractive soul
Will I always find friends of good cheer
I question the future as if it weren’t sold
Please tell me we still have a chance to be free
I type out thoughts that you might never know
But throughout time & space, you’ve meant more to me
