Panem et Circenses

Panem et Circenses

Songs melt away
Five years or twenty
Some things will always matter
Sincere subtleties of irony
Sanctuary among mannequins
Stoically morphing statuettes
Single words swim through the haze

Humiliation of trust
Music pulsates in the background
Articulates into instant reproach
Wrapped in silence

Decrepit and anonymous
Adrenaline junkies in memories
Sustenance and sanity evasive
This is normalcy

rhythm of rain

The rhythm of rain
Words flow like water in a rain storm
Other times it crawls across the mountains
Like a glacier in the clouds
Eons before a single rain drop
Melts to be heard
Meaning lost as time passes
Sustenance for a single flower
In a sea of wheat
Where people once danced
Past intertwined in the future
Lost in the present
Puzzle pieces of fate
Changing as every rain drop
Licks the ground

Midnight clouds

Midnight clouds
Silvery light across the lake ice
Cold lonely whistle of a distant train
Snaking through a valley forlorn
Memories through frosted glass
Happy giggles in the remote past
Light plays tricks in the shadows
The haze of reality swims
Through a frozen lake
Four seasons go by
A single frame at a time
Winds howl the only content
Breezing through life’s clock
And the sliding silvery light
Of moon shadow pulsating
A voice asks
Feel my heart beat
Hide under heaven

Devil in the Pocket

Waste on explanations
Devil in one’s back pocket
Angel on one’s shoulder
Limitations on in one’s mind
Both with wings and attitude
Nice to know what a devil will do
Better to know what a demon can do
Even if she on ones shoulder

Home Fire

Home fire
Some walks need to be made alone
With only the accompanying sound of foot steps
No breeze can scatter
Some memories
Incinerated ideals
Dreams that lie in various
States of decomposition
Carrion for painted on faces
Scavengers on a dance floor
The area of fate
Retribution for breathing
Numbly the fire burns through
The clouds haze of narcissism

Glean from whispers

Glean from whispers
Embodiment of patience
Focus barrier
Reluctant remembrance
Induced dreamland
Obliterated grief
Indelible vigilance
Submerged in frosted water
Cease to exit
Fate laughing in the distance
A cool kiss under glass

Time And Tradgedy

Time and Tradgedy
Immunity from reason
Reneging on life deals
Whispers evaporate
Validity white washed
Only the stain remains
Incorruptible soul
Curiosity of a line in the sand
Invisible metallic scar tissue
Claustrophobia even on a prairie plain
A voice icy even in the scorching sun
Ridiculous logical position

Gambling with fate

Gambling with fate
Weighting your odds
Placing your bet
Chances in hell
Bets placed any way
Less in a second fate can change its mind
Laugh at the eyes in the crowd

Karma exchange

Karma exchange
We have already said
Our Goodbyes, Darling
Walking down Redemption road
Past Narcissistic Boulevard
Way past nameless Avenues
Lost in the shadows
Wanting to turn back
Knowing it’s too late
Redemption Road is a one way thoroughfare
A toll road that cost a life time
Emotional Karma
An exchanged timed out
Trust dripping to the ground
Like rain drops off a windshield
I had enough of drama queens
And Isolophobics with poor excuses
Tease fate and never look back

Remorse Resonates

Remorse resonates
Perfection hiding
Smoke lingering in the trees
Fog an icy reminder
Rain water glistens
Painted in memories
Dreams without beginnings
Images through frosted windows

Looking through water

Looking through water
Omnipresent reasons
Modus operates
Wrapped in heaven
With clipped wings
Skydiving from the ground
Marshmallows all around
Buckets of water
It is true
What is the next line?

Nabulus echoes

Nabulus echoes repeating
Gypsy girl dancing in circles
Yet is there more
Proposing only cognitive ideals
Somehow saturated and spurred
You never know where this could go on a Wednesday
Gaelic interruptions
Intrinsic stone giggles
Riddles in the air
Lyrics to a country song

A song like mountain air

A song like mountain air
Heard in the valleys and across the plains
In the wind
Asking a simple question
When and where
If you dare
Or do you care
Eerie howl the wind makes
If you listen to it on winter nights
It may call your name
Searching for the impossible
From a glarier summit
Were the water looks like gems,
Mountains calling you home
Asking a simple question
When and where
Echoing a sound
From up high
That lake in the sky
Where the land
And the sky are mixed in the clouds
When and where

Accents and Aliases

Accents and aliases
Laughter has neither
Travesty knocks
Avoid answering the door
A place made of dreams
At the very edge of the world
Never rains in California
Still there are sad songs
Sometimes a smile is a reflection
Of things to come
Sometimes the wind even lies
Telling you things that are not there
The light hiding in the shadows
Clawing at the storm door
Ascents and aliases
Smiles in the eyes have none

Windows steam up

Windows steam up

In a car
In the dark
In a park

Windows steamed up
Pictures on the glass
Images across time

The beat plays on
A song in the background
Living in an oxymoronic
Metaphor to a better time

Eons ago before the pain
The agony of life
A pleasure in my spine

Not a second goes by
With out the fingers in my mind
Scaring my thoughts

The flowers are colourful and beautiful
The flower you are
Stands out from the others

Wind so cold

Wind so cold

Wind so cold
I feel it in my backbone
Blows right through me
It burns my face, and hands
Any thing exposed
Gets burned

The wind blows so hard
The trees bend down
The ground wipes up
The sun disappears in the clouds

Feel the cold in every bone
Clothes don’t keep the chill away
The sunshine can’t keep you warm

A fire place in my heart
Is what I need
A warm place to keep the chill away

Trance like dedication

Trance like dedication

Trance like dedication
Dissolved focus
In a thunderstorm
Seeking boredom
Just for a couple of hours
Tantalizing steps
Take away the total numbness
Surreal nightmare
In the middle of the afternoon
Emotional abduction
Three becomes a tool
The need for control
Hate eating you up
Lies become your truth
And zero treads on the front tires
A dangerous place on icy roads

Time heals all

Time heals all

Philosophically time heals all
But the pain is real
The agony lives on
Time and distance will make you strong
A sound will remind you of the fun we had
A taste will bring back a meal
The sight of falling stars will show the night
Songs we shared will take you back
Driving by a field will flood back a moment in time?
Dancing among the flowers
Waking up at five to hit beach before sunrise
Putting your head in ice to clear the cobwebs
From the barn fire
Walking across the border
Seeing the wagon tracks from years ago
Watching the sunset from bald point
Camping in trail

Waking up in a dream scream
Marriage some call it
Your best friend a stranger
Change before your eyes
With hate on her mind

The prairie sun

The prairie sun

In autumn the prairie sun
Has a peculiar radiance
Like a single flower in a desert
An idyllic place to spend a lifetime
I have no illusions left
A statue vaguely familiar
Melancholy look
Her only expression
Philosophical view
Highly improbable
Resentment written
On trembling lips

The cold is everywhere

The cold is everywhere

The cold is everywhere
It’s only a matter of time
Delicate features of black ice
On the road ahead
There is no turning back
The choice was made on February 11
A battle lost here and there
A double meaning implicate
In every thing we do
Wings with frost on them
She may not wish to fly this way
Even if she thinks there is complexity in her path
It sounds like a song
You only hear once on the radio
Maybe even a script to a movie
No one would see
The pain I feel well go away
Time heals most wounds
Scars will be left
I know that pureness
Of honesty is lost
In The crack of glass called trust
Gone with the sound of your lips in the wind
The tears are for 3 now
And the time you wish to take from them

The steam rises

The steam rises

The steam rises
Sitting in a pool
The steam clouds everyone ones vision
Snow flakes make the night magical
Heavy sticky snow
No wind in the air
An old street light
The source of the only light
A silent disillusionment
Not quite comprehending
Eyes deceptively dreamy and a little tense
Hoping to see a seductive look
From one with stylish elegance
Desiring her to show
Sitting a there amid the ghosts
Taking a fatalistic view
Hoping to hear the voice
Say “there you are,”
And knowing it will not happen this night
The giggles of the three snap me back to reality
Rolling in the snow before jumping back in the pool
Affectionately asking daddy
What are you waiting for?

Stealing memories

Stealing memories

Stealing memories
Makes me smile
Through a heavenly valley
A Garden of Eden
On a flat prairie
The colours so beautiful
It makes your heart bloom
Like a blind man smelling a flower
Reaching down to touch the sun
Jumping up to slam the ground
I don’t understand
Stealing my soul
Nothing to call mine
Took my identity
Cause I am lost with out
Lost all that time
We could have been enjoying
Each other
Breath before it my chest falls in
My last breath
Your name will be
On my lips

killer Smiles

Killer smiles
A dare
Maybe even a what for
Fingers that cannot stay still
Eyes with an open stare
Makes me nervous
Don’t know what to say
Every move wrong
Every step confused
Looking up to see killer smiles
All teeth and corners turned up
A dare but more likely, what for
A music video could not fake it
The look circumspect
Wondering in a experiment
Feels like an insect
Just before being crushed
Her eyes giggle just then
Looking up from thought
She says hi
All smiles

Set in stone

Set in stone

Life is an adventure
Nothing is set in stone
Cries of your heart
Screams of your desire
Lost in my head
Why do you ignore me?
Avoiding the chance
Fear of hurting others
Even for a little time
Away from the eyes
That stare me in my face
Thoughts of adventure
But stuck in despair
Lying about in the dark
When will you tell me?
If you have decided
Or wish that I would go away
Disappearing in the mist

Nebulous dream

Nebulous dream

An oasis in a nebulous dream
Obstacles stain a surreal reality
Intriguing looks from across a room
Fabricated and embellished stories follow
Like a golden orange glow of a setting sun
Romantic exaggerations surface from the shadows
Perplexing like a waning moon
A spirit of adventure still rests
Intricate situations cloud an open mind like noxious smoke
It makes me feel apprehensive and strangely remote
A dream in colour looking forward
Black and white looking back
Finding meaning were it is manageable
Apparently I did not comprehend
Like a arrogance impairment
Dedication to an ideal

Be your every thing

Be your every thing

The beat plays in four four time
The cello joins in
The word comes slowly
A whisper above the beat
Each word pounds from the lips

I want to be your everything
She responds with silence
I want to hold you in my arms
She looks up into his eyes
You take my breath away
She walks away

The base joins in
Then a scream from the guitar
You can feel the beat in your skin
The voice echoes off the walls

I want to be your everything!
The girl walks

In whisper
I want to hold you in my arms
The girl turns around
Making contact across a room
You take my breath away
She takes a step forward

The fear of what is to come, holding both apart
I am just throwing that out there
Do with it, what you wish
She look up into his eyes hoping he is right

The music stops for a second
And it is just his words that can be heard

In a gravely voice
I what to be your everything
Let’s touch the sky
Be there for you
Hold you when you cry
Open your heart and let me in
Don’t let the fear scare you

The beat comes back
With the cello and the base
And guitar joins in as the song ends
And the girl takes a step forward
Before turning away

Middle of a thunderstorm

Middle of a thunderstorm

Life in a middle of a thunderstorm
Vultures sour
Getting their panoramic view
Expressionless faces groping in the dark
Haunting my dreams as my heart screams
Hammering against my rib cage
Transparent visible people all about
Dissolved voices ceased to let me hear
Walking around in a trance like sleep
Condescending smiles from expressionless faces
Malicious actions
Coming from a hideous spirit
Malignant souls shrouded in the past
Mixed with happiness
