AGAIN

Time and again through the ages,
I have walked apon this earth,
A contract made in heaven,
forgotten at my birth,
A different plan and purpose,
Different obstacles to overcome,
I have been a father,
A brother and a mum,
This life is one of many,
I have seen this path before,
A lesson for me to learn,
leaving me begging for more,
Underneath the stars I sit,
with eyes that have seen them before,
and some day I shall return,
Learning through life once more.

falling

I thought I did not love him,
I had buried it deep inside,
It boils to the surface,
with no'where left to hide.
I have tried to ignore it,
Tried so hard to leave,
Yet I am drawn to him,
Caught in the web we weave,
The gentle touch of his hand,
That feeling so divine,
I am falling, I cannot stop,
His heart has melted mine,
The veil now has lifted,
His true heart revealed,
And I am safe in his arms,
As my heart is finally healed.

8 Years

Yesterday I had everything,
Yesterday I was complete,
Now the walls have crumpled,
Ruins lay at my feet,
Back to square one,
The tears do not stop,
It seems it was inevetable,
That I would fall from the top,
Now I lay broken,
With nothing left to lose,
You will never find me,
I shall leave no clues,
It was freedom that I wanted,
Yet to you I was a slave,
I would have left you long ago,
If only I had been brave,
I can no longer comply,
I hand in my resignation,
because after all my dear,
I am simply your creation,
So now I am leaving,
Under the cover of night,
and I shall never look behind....
At the wreckage of our final fight.

RHYMING Dictionary

My most treasured possession,
My Rhyming dictionary,
Has got me through many a dilema,
Brought me to my destiny,
When in the middle,
Of a complicated rhyme,
There is nothing worse than getting stuck,
For the longest time.
And so my faithful friend,
Is always by my side,
Finding rhymes for the obscure..
My oracle, my guide.

SOLITUDE

Somewhere deep inside,
A mystery is stirring,
Twisted logic of my mind,
A subtle gentle yearning,
A convoluted feeling,
Some freedom that I seek,
Haunting me in the darkness,
As i desperately try to sleep,
Escape from captivity eludes me,
Though self inflicted,
For the truth is that solitude,
is to what I am addicted.

PARANOIA

I feel a sense of unease,
Of slight trepidation,
A knotting in my stomach,
Waiting for a revalation,
My gut is trying to tell me,
That caution lays ahead,
Filling me with anxiety,
Restlessness and dread,
This feeling is not new,
It's been here many times before,
But until now I did not listen,
Then trouble landed at my door,
So now I must be vigilent,
I must be on my gaurd,
The signs sent to me,
I must not ignore nor discard,
I am hoping i am wrong,
This portent, this paranoia,
Waiting for the walls to crumble,
and reveal the dark destroyer.

voices

vOICES

When oh when...
Did the voices in my head,
Quieten and fade away,
Along with everything they said,
The put downs, the insults,
That plaqued me for years,
Telling me I am useless,
Reducing me to tears,
My mind now is peaceful,
My mind is now so clear,
I did not even notice,
The voices disapear,
They now have been replaced,
By a gentle summer breeze,
A melody so beautiful,
It brings me to my knees,
In this symphony of silence,
The only voice I hear is mine,
And underneath the darkness,
A light begins to shine.

NDE

I have been to the other side,
Became part of the light,
Felt love all consuming,
I knew that everything was right,
I left my earthly body,
I soared past Jupiter and Mars,
Travelling at the speed of light,
Through a universe full of stars,
Peace an love enveloped me,
I felt Gods warm embrace,
Like a gentle summer breeze,
that brushed against my face,
But it was not my time,
I fell back down to earth,
yet I knew I had been to my home,
forgotten at my birth,
So many years have passed now,
yet I still see the signs,
clearer now than ever,
with a light that forever shines.
I died that day it's true,
I crossed over for a while,
mock me and disbelieve if you must,
whilst I continue to smile.
