With a knock upon my dressing room doors
I enter stage right to rapturous applause
And I sit before a white grand piano
So excited to perform
Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue
Such a treat for me to play 
It would be a major coup
This masterpiece...Read More

If I weren't afraid, I'd 
act on the stage 
A thespian I would be

When I witness a show 
I yearn to be up there
as part of the company

But deep down inside I am desperately shy
An acting profession I'm too afraid...Read More

Accolades And Barricades.

The accolades that I have won
The medals for all the deeds I’ve done
The countless diplomas and awards
The rapturous  applause

Don’t say who I am
But where I’ve been
And mean little
I don’t shout about it
And I keep it underwraps unseen

My anticipation mounting as I walk into the lobby
A trip to the theatre is my greatest love, my hobby
With feelings of great wonder and excitement overflowing
For only a calamity can really stop me going

With my expectations rising, well it isn’t...Read More

Three Words For You
I realised my loving habit on resurgence,
The habit of a loner,never in reference,
An offbeat of people's associates,
An evaluation of oneself,no delegates.
It's a feeling i've had for long,
That sweet feeling,so hard to go,
The feeling that restored my soul,
Off banquets,with love galore.

The Wedding Party

Wind undressed the sky, bared a canvas painted blue. 
Motley faces of sunflower smiles and festive air; an abstract 
splash, each gleamed; each swung in purple dress, waiting 
for the bride, a summer moon, to float to the stage as funnels

The other me - a tribute to drag queens
The other me you'd be quite surprised
She wears high heels, makes up her eyes
she parades around, singing lively songs
telling bawdy jokes where she belongs

Upon the stage, she's not alone
for in that bar, the stage, her home.
Dressed head to foot in...Read More

A sea of heads stretches out into the distance 
The vast stage is set with banks of massive speakers
Two giant screens will reflect the performers every movement

The lights dim and the crowd erupts in ecstasy
The drummer begins his rhythmic pulse,...Read More

The Death of A King
Contest Entry: Ancient Egypt

Four men, one king what a show
Taught muscles, strong bodies, no foe
The sport of Pharaoh’s to kill a King
In rapturous applause crowds stand and sing

To prove it is a...Read More

Bon Anniversaire
As I walk out into the street on 
a bright night in my dark brown suit,
blinking neon lights,whistling breeze
with horns of cars buzzing through the night,
I walk into the hotel lounge expecting
to see the creme-de la-creme
in the business world there,
The...Read More

Little people stood around
And whispered at the sky
You must have seen it as did I
The word was so profound

Where’d it come from I don’t know
I’ve never seen the like 
And lighting up the night so bright
I even saw it glow

The Space that's within -
The atmosphere is electric with joyous anticipation
The musicians are readying themselves to perform
 You know some of the pieces that are on the programme
You settle yourself down and switch off your phone.

The concert is starting - the atmosphere changes
An energy...Read More

A Real Life
I marvel at how attentive you are, 
With your little ballerina feet kicking
As the movie flicks and the real rolls. 
Your mouth catching flies; coke stained, 
Discarded popcorn prompts a world to life. 

In here we are safe. 
And yet...Read More
