Premium Member A faded tune of a far away song
All I wanted to do is lip-sync, you may say
In my tiny room, in my own time, as you may say
Your wish is my command, is it not?

Heartbreak addiction
I used to try and numb the pain with this brandy I'm sipping 
Why am I holding on to everything that's missing? 
I got so used to being in pain, I fell in love with the painful scars
I think I've...Read More

Woman
Today I am a woman...
Not because my lips are red
and my breasts are full-
for my lips have been fooled
and my breasts have been ruled...
Not because my shoes are heeled
and my hair is long-
for those shoes lead me down dangerous roads

My God
Religion binds us in guilt

Using sins it restricts

Religion with its dogmatic doctrines

Feels the need to control everything

Demands we worship at their feet

Expects supplication and blind belief

Encouraging you part with cash

Like that will bring redemption back

No matter how devoted you may...Read More

Abandoned Ville
Inside my crib you’re unaware 
Judging by what I wear 
Anger and resentment I swear 
You see me smiling, happy 
I appear bubbly 
Only 
You never realise just how lonely 
Tears form behind my eyes 
You don’t realise 
I am...Read More

Wounded animal
You're about to see there's no difference between a tortured artist or a Wounded animal 
Picking up a pen was the only way to make my depression manageable
At times it seemed that beating depression wasn't Fathomable

Do tell
Do Tell the therapist I'll get there in my own time
I'm just not ready to let you examine my mind
For so long I hid behind being insane
Bipolar so the thoughts are illogical in my brain
Half of me thinks my poetry...Read More

Make the wait poetic
I went out for a walk in the evening
Kept my pace with the sinking silent sun
My wife called she went for a brief shopping
And would be back home before I return.

I came back in my own time not so quick
Found...Read More

On a lonely night
On a lonely night you're the one I think about
You're who I'm talking to when I pour this ink out
I think about you on a lonely night knowing we can't repair it
I want us to grow slowly, but you're ready...Read More

Don't pick up the phone
If you're going then I really need you to be gone
When I have a weak moment, I need you to be strong
I need you to act like you don't care, while I learn to move on
So if I call you,...Read More

Incase I actually get her
Don't play my heart, or break my heart
But that's like saying don't erase my scars
You can't feel happiness without pain
Have sunshine without rain
If I put you at ease, do you promise you won't make it hard?
Will you allow me to...Read More

Heavenly beings
Heavenly beings.


Eternal in Heaven.
The day is warm, but the air is cool,
As I sit here watching an angel, who is sat upon a toadstool.
She plays the harp and whispers a song
And all around, children and their families are sat listening...Read More

Eternal
I draw their spirits close to me and breathe,
and still I find, there's something to believe.
I need their energies to make me strong.
I hear the subtle echoes: Samhain's song.

Nobody feels my reason - hears my rhyme.
My rhythms only work in...Read More

Secret Place
There is a secret place, 

out in my own time space.

You have to enter in a fast pace,

like you are trying to win a race.


I entered through a sinking door.

Inside there are many wonders galore.

Many things in store.

Nothing in there...Read More

Would Do - Wanted To Do

the knolls on the lawn at cambridge arms
life's passions all absorbed on green grasses 
as the innocent treasures tammed and measured
accordingly we shy away the aftermass of past
stoned bridges enhance the connection point

I Wonder
What if I confessed my love to you,
Tell me just what would you do?
Would you match my heart with yours
Or would you leave me lost and torn?

What if you found you felt the same
And had only fate to blame?
Tell me...Read More

But now I have to close the door .....
Now I am in my own time

So wanted to hear from...Read More

A Poet In His Own Time
Who am I  to criticize others,
I'm a poet in my own time,
my own place and my own world,
I just write what I see, feel
          and hear.

My poetry may be different,
