In Knots

In Knots

Trying to untie
the macramé
of my thoughts
Knotted every 
which way
 
Tightly bound
and resistant
to my attempts
All I can do is hope
for a fray
 
The more
I struggle
the more it stings
Words no longer
coherent
 
A jumbled mind
looking for release
from this
cloud covering
obscurant

Lyrics

White Wedding
Billy Idol


Hey little sister, what have you done?
Hey little sister, who's the only one?
Hey little sister, who's your superman?
Hey little sister, who's the one you want?
Hey little sister, shotgun!
 
It's a nice day to start again
It's a nice day for a white wedding
It's a nice day to start again
 
Hey little sister, who is it you're with?
Hey little sister, what's your vice or wish?
Hey little sister, shotgun, oh yeah
Hey little sister, who's your superman?
Hey little sister, shotgun!
 
It's a nice day to start again
It's a nice day for a white wedding
It's a nice day to start again
 
Pick it up!
Take me back home, yeah
 
Hey little sister, what have you done?
Hey little sister, who's the only one?
I've been away for so long
I've been away for so long
I let you go for so long
 
It's a nice day to start again
Come on it's a nice day for a white wedding
It's a nice day to start again
 
There is nothing fair in this world
There is nothing safe in this world
And there's nothing sure in this world
And there's nothing pure in this world
Look for something left in this world start again!
 
It's a nice day for a white wedding
It's a nice day to start again
It's a nice day to start again
It's a nice day to start again

Layers

Layers

It is no one’s fault
That I find myself here
By the water’s edge 
Where else would I be?
Searching for answers
as is my way
 
I look up to the sky
and count the stars
framing the memory
in my mind
Remembering the last time
Here with you
 
I am not the prisoner
living within your mind
Nor your property
but yet you judge me
I came and left
grateful to be free
 
I picture the angle
of your jaw
that ever so slight
smirk on your face
your eyes, your hair,
your voice
 
Tiredness comes
eventually
and I am calm
Resting now
between the layers
of my thoughts

Across the Universe

Across the Universe

The flicker of movement
in the corner of my eye
Warm breath on my neck
A soft touch
against my cheek
These things
Let me know
of your presence
 
When sadness consumes me
or I dissolve in a meltdown
the house lights will flash
That little bird sitting
on my shoulder
Whispering in my ear
and I know
you’ve heard me
 
These subtle messages
of communication
Imagined or not
give me the strength
I need to grow without you
for you have gone now
to somewhere else
across the Universe

Eve of Destruction

Eve of Destruction

As I listen to the cacophony
of crows squabbling
over tumbled fruit
on the ground
Or as I watch dolphins
arcing in the sea
I am forever in gratitude
that I have lived to see
the magic of nature
 
As our forests burn
and the oceans
fill with garbage,
so does our respect
for these wondrous gifts
We have used and abused
our planet
to the point
of its destruction
 
Our cries for help
fall on the deaf ears
of politicians
who govern in denial
These naysayers
disavow the science
Their followers
are blind to the facts
and do nothing
