Good Night World

Good night world, I must sleep, The book I was reading, Did not make me weep. The lovers did not get together, I was angry, I routed for them, But the authors mind was weak! Good night world, I am going to sleep, People meant to be together, Lives not meet. The rules were made…

Farewell to an Unknown Friend (Robin Williams Memorial)

He made us laugh, He made us cry, He made us stop, And ask why. He’s been a genie, A President, twice. A teacher, a poet, A nanny for his ex wife. He made fun of Scots, And talked about golf. But no matter what, he was their for us all, On the tv, youtube…

Home Could Be

I hate the goodbyes, The see you in a year, The prospect of home, When home could be their. I hate the not knowing, Being able to share how we feel, The thought of no you and i, When we know how the other feels. I hate the worry, In you finding another, and the…

Why You Lie

I hate this feeling, Every time we say goodbye. I hate this feeling, Of asking myself why. I hate this feeling, A knot in my stomach. I hate this feeling, As I fly high in the sky. I hate this feeling, As I wave Athens goodbye! I hate this feeling, Of not knowing why you…

Return to the Rock

Do you remember the night on the rock, As we once again sit together, Same place as that night, Now we just sit and talk. No La Team to interupt, As we share glances and smiles. Our evident past to be heard. The same streets below. No longer a loving couple, As we catch up…

Returning

I remember the day, We said farewell, Our relationship, Departed. Flew home to Scotland, Time of my life, Behind me, With you. We spoke, and argued, Decided to part, Show the door, farewell. Almost two years, Since our eyes last met, A year since we last spoke, Trying to forget. The meet-up gets closer, Anxiety…

Hammering

Will you stop your fucking hammering, Its going right through me, making me irritated, Tense, unable to concentrate, Cant do the report I need to do. No matter how loud I put my music, To drown out the constant tat tat tat, You seem to hammer at a level that breaks through, Causing more and…

Romance

A bird flies in through the window, The painting falls off the wall, Sunlight vanishes in the horizon, As a crow calls, Darkness covers what the sun touched, No electronics in sight, A candle is lit on the mantelpiece, This the only light! A couple sit on the chaise longue, recalling their day in the…

Beating Faster

Beating fast, Must be in a race, Sitting alone, I cry, I wish, I miss, Miss a special someone, Someone special. Her smile could tame the most savage beast, Her eyes so deep, You could lose yourself in, Her hair long and blonde, Her name rolls off my tongue so softly. I cry as I…
