How vulnerable is this world,
Where an innocentfieldbecomes a deathtrap.
Children whoonce played without a thought,
Now rummage for metal they can sell as scrap.
Click, snap, a moment is captured,
But is reality reflected or is it just fractured?
You're intrigued and curious about the culture,
But is dignity maintained when you snap like a vulture?
Love For Life
Before us today, united you
Looking forward together, hand gripped in hand.
This is the moment, you’ve both chosen your direction,
A soul mate on whom to pour your affection.
Loves bitter tail twists
deeper buried than times healing
Hey here i am
wading through the hordes
of sex trade spam
a lonely guy of course.
Tread Lightly I Pray You
Tread lightly i pray you
there's plenty beneath
for the joy of shouting
with joyful glee
Fill my glass to the brim
am an optimist after all
keep the high spirits coming
put behind the hard days toil
Stay In Touch
Only a mirror. It’s not really me I see. An illusion like the world. Not liking the world I lie, curled in my mind’s eye. Mindless I wander the corridors. Search, looking for a reality to stay in touch with.
You in your weakened state
I want to be the dark stuff
Under your eyes
The perspiration rolling southwards
