Backstabber

Eyes

Mesmerized,

Hearts bleeding

Silhouetting dreams

 

In the night 

You come creeping back,

Weakness explained

Boring needs

 

Marooned

On a desert isle,

Stab me in the back

And be done with it

A Difficult Man

Friends they have withered in vane

Vanished in the drought,

Family is a far away notion

A gap that grows

 

I suppose

I must be a difficult man

Someone who you keep

At an arms length

 

I belong in a different time

Where a dreamer can believe,

Where loyalty and truth

Means something in the rain

 

The winds blow colder

As I follow a lonesome path,

Signs whisper of madness

A sort of greatness in death

 

I suppose

We all live in wonder –

Treading water

Trying to keep sane

 

Things happen to us

Without meaning

And we must embrace

The randomness of life

 

Smile at the eye of the hurricane

Watch as our surroundings are

Wiped out in a blink of eternity –

Consciousness come undone
