I Cannot Even Speak Of This Frustration

I cannot even speak of this frustration
Rotting my spirit with haste from inside
Patience melting with all rational thought
Anger takes over & there’s no place to hide
But where did the peace loving man go?
At what price did control finally slip away
Repercussions & consequences are now here
Humbled, embarrassed, but we live to find a new day

Carefully Chosen Sentence Structures

Carefully chosen sentence structures

The love of words keeping you from the cold

Bundled in that threadbare cardigan

But you never allowed your spirit to be sold

The world wishes to destroy your soul

& watch gleefully as you wither & cry

But as long as you keep on writing

You’ll learn that you can never really die

Dreams Of Pretty Dancing Girls

Dreams of pretty dancing girls
Tartan skirts & gold buckles on their shoes
Legs draped in such fine stockings
High kicks, but treasure out of view
The fantasy of a joyous party
Spirited music playing a bit loud
Fiddles & bagpipes; what a scene
You pulled me out of the dense crowd
Beauty of drinking black beer all day
My stature begins to slightly tilt
You quietly asked me for a light
But there’s no pockets in this kilt
Envisioning what the night might bring
Is it possible that you could be this real
Sharing a pint in a secluded corner
A second Guinness is considered a meal

 

  • I know I just published this last fall…

Picking Up My Girl Along The Way

people-2560869_1920.jpg

 

 

Picking up my girl along the way
A short enough skirt that’ll surely tease
Soft tones upon the extinguished day
Wine & song that I might forever please
Snapping fingers & popping buttons
Ample latitude that I might play her fool
Admittedly; for her touch I’m a glutton
My own words reveal me to be still uncool
My ravishing mettle giving her just cause
Subtly picking up her heels and hemline
This rakish spirit providing her pause
Exposing joy & unadulterated sunshine

Time Can Water Down Revolutions

Time can water down revolutions
Make you think it’s all through
You’ve settled into the motions
Somehow your spirit failed you
But we have some hidden secrets
Something that keep the motor running
No use in divulging your very own truth
Locked lips; the sign of something more cunning

Typing, Hacking, Thinking – Smokin’ Hot

woman-972851
Typing, hacking, thinking – Smokin’ hot
Typing your best to empty all thought
Pouring your soul into force upon the keys
Your woman walks past with a dress above the knees
Now you can’t think or type or stammer straight
The hell with with deadlines – this one’s gonna be late
You pray to the spirits of procrastination or whatever you think of
Burn this project right now, sacrifice it in the name of love

You’ll Find Me Beyond The Cobblestones

hill-1159188.jpg

You’ll find me beyond the cobblestones
Quiet man writing within a chaotic confine
Euphoric bedlam swinging from the rafters
A modest home upon the steep incline
Spirited princesses keeping me youthful
A curmudgeon with a loving streak
An honest hermit with little to say
Though here silence will not translate to meek

A Picture Postcard Perfect Appearance

A picture postcard perfect appearance
Modest, yet smoldering beauty beneath
A festive spirit expounding – Winter’s tales
Out singing carols & hanging a wreath
But once you come home for the day
Put on those hooker lips & pirate boots
Time to release your animalistic desire
Tired of being demure & a little too cute

Over The Soft Meadows

Over the soft meadows
Dancing in a sun dress
Love amongst the wildflowers
A simple life, but I digress
Spirited away by a charming Prince
With promises of a jeweled crown
She chose aspiration over inspiration
Weighed down, lost, she drowned
