Starshine Tonight





Starshine tonight
Closing my eyes
Opening my heart
Stop thinking; never surmise
I’m not going to succumb
I’d much rather be free
All form; transfixed into labels
I stubbornly reject. My soul is me


Smelling Coffee Long Before





Smelling coffee long before
These tired eyes were ever meant to open
Dreading wakin’ and meetin’ people
No time like now, so here’s to hopin’
The day started & it’s past time to rise
One foot out & eventually the other leg
I’m going to need more of this magic juice
I feel society comin’ at me like the damn plague

Walking Down The Street On All Saints Day






Walking down the street on All Saints Day
Victrolas on display at the corner store
Aflirtatious greeting with the local beauty
She always smiles, but never asks for more
You’ve created another aura within her
Casting her a red-blooded in your pulp fantasy
A polite lady with those vicious high heels
Mental interludes without consent, it seems to me
Take your dreams & exit stage left
You tried to court &failed, life’s not fair
Let a true gentleman whisper elegant words
She’ll open up her passion, exposing her silky pair


What Were Those Secrets You Wished To Explain





What were those secrets you wished to explain
Which night do you want me to recall
I’m closing my eyes to open my senses
Your presence always reminds me of Heaven in the Fall
I can’t remember every single emotion
For there’ve been too many we’ve shared
& forever is still so long on the horizon
I can only promise you that my soul will always be bare


I Know You’ve Been Thinking About Me


I know you’ve been thinking about me
The interweb leaves tracks – translated into clues
I should lock my doors when I sleep at night
But I leave them open, because I’ve been thinking about you


Gimme A Minute Till I Look Pretty


Gimme a minute till I look pretty
I don’t want to go out there without my cologne
I can’t deal with the sketchy people
You know, they’ve hidden away all the pay phones
I don’t trust the Gov’t hiding behind rain coats
The shadows are weary with their demodulation
Open your windows to the rain – expect justice
I shall bare my raw breast in hopes of emotional rehabilitation


The Unsteady Horizon Rocking Me


The unsteady horizon rocking me
I’m doing my best to remain upright
Another desert soul back to sea
Taking steps to catch my fall tonight
My eyes are exhausted & can’t open
Cautiously alert for what’s out there
Wished & prayed never return again
The ocean’s been a dangling nightmare


We’ve Built Our Mysteries & Fantasies


We’ve built our mysteries & fantasies
Every time we close our eyes
I’m not rich nor the most handsome
No reason to dispel all those lies
But you’re everything to me
Excited whenever I tug on your hem
I wish I’m the one you hope to see
Each & every time you open them


Returning To The World


Returning to the world
Finding life left unraveled
A smile never so grand
Home the best place traveled
Warmth of simple comforts
Never trading precious delights
Beauty in these open arms
Darkness eclipsed by light


Rhythmic Clangs Sending Me To Slumber


Rhythmic clangs sending me to slumber
Feeling boiled alive from this steam
Riding the tops of white caps
Open ocean no longer a distant dream
Haze grey & underway
Never sleeping again with wide open amaze
Searching for Neptune within this nevermore
Fear crawling down my back, but does not take
Forcing back fear known of the ocean floor
Haze grey & underway
