If Only
Could we climb into a bubble and float away?
just for a day
or maybe a week
Hell, why not another?
we could sift through the clouds
or stroke passing leaves
stare through sunbeams
and perch on the breeze
Day could chase night,
away for a while,
so dreams could stay
within daydreaming.
chatter would be unwelcome
hubbub would be banished
and the pain of life
would never have existed.
We could go grab a boat down by that little harbour
one they wouldn't miss
it wouldn't need to be big
just enough for us two
with a little sail in baby blue
which would wink at the sea
as you and I became 'we'.
Night would chase day
and the buzz of life would stay
back on the land
rather than sticking
its nose in the way (like it does)
it would have to wait behind
for our return
If it ever came.
But then if
if that could actually happen
I'd never want to leave
and maybe you'd get bored.
and then what?
what if-?

The Departure Lounge
Now you have gone
where do I go?
I was given no ticket
I cannot follow.
In the departure lounge
of life we all know
the mystery's unfair.

The Stranger in the Waiting Room
There's that man again
With the greasy hair,
ratty face,
pointing fingers
and vicious smile.
His wicked ideas of
what is interesting
and what makes him laugh.
Keeps on asking you
your age
while licking his lips.
He has no reason
to be where he is.
He has no reason
to be near you.
And yet he lingers.
Asking questions.
Telling stories
of babies' heads
popping out of their sockets
while he laughs
and flirts with nurses
and complains about the TV
which he isn't watching.
What he is watching
is you.
And he watches you intently.
Squinting and wondering aloud
why you are uncomfortable
why you are stressed
what you are doing
how old you are
and he licks his lips.
And he Laughs
and he leaves
for now.

Grandfather's Clock
your clock
so did
my watch
the world
kept on ticking.
there's a bustle
the street
the candle wick
is burning.
My mind
won't move
while yours
has left
and I am
stuck here
When your heart
skipped a beat
and yet
the world
kept turning.
Your hands
went cold
as did
my soul
But still
I must keep
I tried
to find
That peaceful
To keep
the darkness
from stirring
But the memory
burns through the
present's place
I guess
I am still learning
I need to
silly thought
that one day
you're returning.

My Second Home
It started off strange and cold
but I am warming to it.
The people were hard to understand
with their awkward acents and turns-of-phrases
but with practice I learned to understand.
I familiarised my route to town,
where, along the path
faces emerge from under the concrete,
like the dead rising.
Skinny dogs and flower pots
tempt me as I pass them,
then later, warmer carriages and hairy hounds
call me into their abodes.
Lately, though, I find my world
getting colder from both homes.
My family place is suffering
and most friends have deserted me.
My world is growing grey.
In time I hope it shall colour itself once more
but I am helpless in my waiting.

A Letter To Death :iconmidnight-mysteries:midnight-mysteries 0 0
Back to Square One
And so the tiny little bee
shuffled so uncomfortably
back to the hive with a muffled cough
and both wings having been ripped off.
The home needed fixing:
"A job just for one"
even when under the smouldering sun.
Even when parts of the hive
were pulled apart, then
the bee knew it just
had to (silently) start again.
Oh little bee, try
to find sense; to see straight.
Try to get out before it's too late.

If only...
It's only when the people
I thought important go away
that I wonder if I could've
done more to make them stay
It's only when the people
that I love start to die
That I wonder what I'd do
if I could turn back time

Tzara's Rule
stale looking grandfather;
the wasting desert traveller
with a ticking pocket watch.
Staring at the rustic hand,
barely moving - more a sun dial,
terrified it will rapidly stop
and potential future lost.

Life's taken over a bit i'm afraid. Haven't found the time for art. Also - managed to break my wrist in my last match so have been a bit stuck even with the guitar now. But time is mending and hopefully with it i'll find some space to knuckle down and put pen to paper :)
