Mystery In The Night

Here we go again.
Another days end.
Gotta get into something.
I’m alive now.
Mind’s wide open.
Darkness falls.
Turn off the lights.
Stay up, get out.
There’s mystery in the night.

Sleep all day.
Right through the raves.
Soon enough the wake.
Crawl into the black.
Eyes love this place.
Darkness falls.
Turn off the lights.
Stay up, get out.
There’s mystery in the night.

What could be?
Chosen to not see.
Take pleasure in not knowing.
Quite a relief.
Controlling nothing.
Darkness falls.
Turn off the lights.
Stay up, get out.
There’s mystery in the night.

Why be afraid of the dark?
Half the fun is the unknown.
Let all the anger out.
Likely alone.

Darkness falls.
Turn off the lights.
Stay up, get out.
Enjoy the mystery of the night.

Waiting

Waiting on a lost love.
So many times almost given up.
Just gotta be getting near.
Say a prayer at the start of each year.
Who could you be?
And oh darling where?
Losing my mind.
Like I’m losing hair.
Oh god please
Show me you’re there.
Need someone to care.

Waiting on a lost love.
Can’t catch up fast enough.
Thought the fog would clear.
In my heart fear.
Who could you be?
And oh darling where?
Losing my mind.
Like I’m losing hair.
Oh god please
Show me you’re there.
Need someone to care.

Don’t tell me I’m wrong.
Stringing me along.
Need it now more than ever.
Dreaming together
My lost love

I’m lost now.
Thought I’d figure it out.
Hurry up and end.
No more time to spend.
Who could you be?
Oh darling where?
Losing my mind.
Like I’m losing hair.
God I’m begging please.
Show me you’re there.
Let me love, I’ll believe you care.

not much

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. Been thinking about the past and the future, and how miserable it all feels. One moment a sliver of sunshine, only to fade to darkness. Desperate for a change, apparently the only one.

Don’t be afraid – new poem

Don’t be afraid to run little one.

Don’t be afraid to run.

There’ll be days you’ll want to walk.

Don’t be afraid to walk.

If you are afraid. Remember it’s all a game.

You’ll learn in no time at all.

Don’t be afraid to call out a wrong.

Don’t be afraid to take a stand.

It’s okay if you’d rather have a seat.

There are plenty raised hands.

Restless for a game? One you wanna play.

Someday I hope you’ll get that call.

Don’t be afraid to walk.

My Lady – poem/lyrics

This is the latest thing I’ve completed, after having some writer’s block and unable to finish some of the other stuff. It’s heavily inspired by various 50s and early 60s pop type songs as I am quite a fan of that music, but anyway…

I’ve read the signs.
They’re totally clear.
The love you’re given me is true and real.
Oh baby. My little lady.

I’m in heaven when you’re in my arms.
Hold you close like an angel deserves.
Oh baby. My little lady.

Promise baby that this’ll never end.
I need you every day again and again.

Say the word.
I’m begging on my knees.
No need to fake, I’m here to please.
Oh baby. My little lady.

No other person.
Who can pull my strings.
Only you.
And whatever that brings.
Oh baby. My little lady.

Promise baby you’ll never go.
Need you more than you could ever know.

rant 2

Doomed. Are we? Can’t even pretend to get along. Constant name-calling. Everyone screaming,  yet not listening. Uninterested in reality. Unhelpful madness. Incredibly boring. And worst of all, the inability to change.

yep – short

Out of darkness comes light.
But remember, light can burn.
Pop those shades on, forget who they are.
Lay back and watch the suckers fry.

rant

We are alone. Wandering about our existence. Purpose, some find it. Others search their entire life, and nothing. Nothing. That’s what we are. That’s what we are worth. Forgotten as time chugs on.

Learning – Short Poem

What is wrong?

What is right?

You can alter the suns rays.

But you can’t add the sun to night.

Pulling on strings.

Turning a blind eye.

Learning a lesson.

Learning to try.
