Peculiar places
Hallucinatory faces
My body’s taken flight
Like my mind last night
Expressing what it couldn’t
Because it was told it shouldn’t
But it never seems to go away
I will be like this ’til my dying day
If only I could keep your protection with me
But somehow I know that’s not meant to be


Tell me not of your past
Don’t talk about your future
Share with me only your present
Allow me the Honour of now
Give me the gift of this moment
For no matter what has been
Or what is to come
This moment is all that matters

Memory Lane

I thought of you today
I wondered where you are
I remembered the games we played
I recalled seeing you from afar
Are you still alive?
Did your dreams come true?
Did your heart survive
All that life has brought to you?
The depths of dark brown eyes
Have often filled my dreams
Would there have been as many lies
If the impossible could have been?
Of course I will never know
The events of all these years
But from my eyes now flow
A stream of nostalgic tears


I knew I’d lost my happy,
But didn’t realise
Just how low I’d become.
For the first time in weeks
I smiled today – really smiled –
And remembered life is fun.
I remembered who I am,
What I’m all about,
Why I always used to run.
But the gypsy blood is dormant,
I no longer crave escape,
My roaming days are done?
Instead I want to settle,
For at least a little while,
To stabilise, consolidate,
And heal the damaged one.


I assume someone else
Now has your heart
The way I used to
The thought makes me sad
But I can’t think
Of anything I can do
To make things
The way they once were
I know I will cry
And suffer the pain
But I hope with all my heart
You are happy
