Your Sign

Given your past

I don’t put it beyond you

To lie and cheat,

It is your trademark –

How you move on

To unsuspecting prey;

Tell them your sob-story

That rings pink and hollow now

As your soul

 

Fill your cup of love

Stir it with deceit

Sugar the promises –

And milk it for all you got.

Empty the cup

And throw it in the fireplace,

Let the shards melt

In your flaming,

Consuming hedonism 

In Remembrance

Will you remember me

When my time has come

And gone?

 

Windswept changes,

Ephemeral destiny,

We are

 

A lonesome cry

A flicker

That dies

 

Will you mourn my soul

When spirits escape

My eyes?

 

I ran through the fog

On borrowed time –

Never knowing my bearings

 

I stood alone,

We stood together,

It passed through my dreams

 

Will you remember me

Tomorrow,

Will you care?

 

I cared for you

What Should Be Said

I know the words

That should be uttered

At this moment,

Yet they don’t find

The right vibrations

And never leave my mind

 

Tongue is knotted

Ready to deliver,

Mind is shackled

And words

Are not free

Anymore

 

I know how you feel –

I feel it too,

The silence leaves

A space that widens

A gulf that threatens

Future love
