Welcome to my MADNESS

In the sweet arms

Im walking blind 

As I try to breathe

Live in your breath

Allowing me to understand

As I hold your hand


Nothing can stop the bleed

Emanating from the open wound

Distant memories

Clouded in shadows

Clouded in memories


I can only walk in the sun

If you allow tomorrows breath upon your hair

Knowing Ill be there in your shadow

Ready to catch the fall 

As it screams a new voice


Watch you plant a garden 

Watch the daffodils grow

Living in the new growth begun

Ready in this life

To begin again

In the sweet arms of a child

Life remains the same

A Friday night 
As any other 
The souls drift on 
The tales told a thousand fold
Exaggerated for the listening few
Shadows lick the smoke stained walls
Stained with the memories of all who speak
Light turns to night 
Clientele the same
A thousand different collars
The stories all the same
I drift n smoke the shadows
On the same Friday nightly stem to the jukeboxes last refrain 
Chisels on the the last train
I smoke last 
Drink my last
Say goodbye again


Allow me to breathe
Allow thought to express free
Unconstrained by the memory beneath
Hidden from view
Closed behind doors locked tight

Rooms held dark 
Where I am yet to breathe
Allowing visions to swirl
In a myriad of unconstrained emotion
Painting thoughts in faces hidden in the depths

Eyes closed tight 
Shying from a tomorrow yet revealed
Lacking of colour in a sunset unborn
A pause
Revealing a soul tainted in pain
Obscured by black
Allow me to breathe
Without your pain


Covered in skin

In the sun I eat the dirt
Congealing on my hands
From the spit spewed from my mouth
Torn at the edges 
Ragged from the talons that clawed my flesh
Dripping vermillion 
Dripping disease 

This heart cannot kiss a wind
This heart cannot save it's own soul
If left to ruminate on words
Uttered in haste
Spoken in the shadow of a closed hand
Whispered in the retched bile of a sin

I have lost you now
This I know
For I see not a shadow
But a forlorn empty space
Covered in an outline of tomorrow
Covered in your blood
As I cover you in my skin


Walk with me

Lived in the rain 
Hope scattered in the splash of a puddle
Reflected of the sky
Steady tattoo of sound
Pitter pat
Pitter pat
Heavy are the feet that walk the mud
Heavy is the heart that only sees ground
Afraid to lift their head
Afraid to see what I see
No beauty is seen in the dark
Eyes hide the glint of once that was
Eyes belie the truth of that will be
Pitter pat Pitter pat
In the palm of my hand I hold yours
Intertwined fingers clasp for anything
Allow me to be those eyes that see no more
Allow me to whisper a name in your ears
Unheard of since the rains began
I walk beside so you never walk alone
Pitter pat

Pitter pat

Tomorrow begins lonely

Silver trembles at thought of loneliness

Endured in the light of the new moon

Eyes cast to the heavens from lands away

Viewing the same stars in constellations unknown

And I kiss


Silken touches of skin electric

Tenderness devours eclectic rhythms born of sorrow

Words left unsaid feed the baying hounds

Confuse the jester now as a card is played

And I kiss


Layered in cashmere you hide to obscure

Kaleidoscopic distortions live the truth

Eyes give away reality to that left unsaid

Shrouded in protection giving way to seduction

And I kiss


In the realm of another place I see your reflection

As a single hand touches as words whisper unspoken

Reveal trust in the guise of forever

Reveal yesterdays torment as another scar of protection

And I kiss


Sail me through the wake in seas of a calm storm

Intolerable as the future guides nothingness 

Weening from the teet of a new day

Hidden in the illusion of self doubt

And I kiss


Dodging raindrops as they fall gold from the stars

Skin coloured alabaster glistening in the sun

I call nothing and whisper your name

A gypsy’s smile cast in a spell of love

And I kiss


In the last kiss goodbye

I linger a moment more

Holding your breath

Listening to the evermore

And I kiss

Rust descends on us now
As flickering candlelight shows our many facets

Much maligned I rest on blended knee
Raising my head as it is guided by your hands

Eyes meet eyes exposing tortured souls
Each knowing the others past before word are spoken

The last of the moons crescent glimmers silver
Darkness exposing the fragility of our humanity 

The uneven rhythm of lapping waves match our heartbeat
Calming the demons that live beneath this, our skin

Each soul has met before on the fields of sunset
Painted hues of vermillion coating the sky as it once coated our hands

Yesterday ends as tomorrow begins
Both knowing that this dance lives in eternity



In the shadow of an angels wisp
I walk alone
My company a heart of gold
Scarred from a journey of years
Skin littered with the remnants of life
Burdens of others carried in a pocket jingling of loose change
Each mask worn protects from prying eyes
The fragile inner worn weak and easy to break
Let no other soul in lest the fragility be born
Look to the stars in hope and restitution 
Silence greets me now words unspoken drift on the currents
Reflection on the sands brings an end to a new day
Voices heard scatter as clearing the mind
Allow me to return to the place of mirrors
I see you and you see me
I see myself again



Crying yourself to sleep as a forgotten yesterday closes in
Acid dipped and toxic chrome glistens in blood 
Discarded you leave a light on to save from stepping on glass
Syringes littler another day scratching your name on the wall
Somewhere a scream is carved in a distant memory
I cannot remember when I heard your name whispered in my ear

Hush my sweet 
Buried in your skin is a key to this belonging

Chance be taken as I drift into severed dreams
Gritty is the kiss on lipstick lips painted scarlet like words scrawled on the mirror
"Death becomes hypnotic resolutions"
Mocking the shadows as they close into my being

Listen to the voices in my hand

Travel the carousel in its never ending journey passing angels on my side
To change a fragment in time when the hands have passed
Eloquent words fall on ears with no sound 

Begin again

Pure emotion overtakes the maligned thoughts crawling the ceiling
Fractures envelope every corner 
Every sentence uttered begins again 
Every syllable hides the true thought as you begin to grow again



Twisted in the shards that lie dying on the canvas
Fragments of hope sung on beats of a butterflies wing
Can you see me now as I kiss the refracted light
Lullabies burn devouring colours from the sunset

Dislocated by the congealed blood under these fingernails
Dissipating memories recoil as today forms the photographs of a mind
From here we can see the shadow of the gods as they rest now
Building from the beginnings as life turns it back on what has begun

Reality bleeds into the river as one to have never seen love
Tasting virtues belonging to another time I do the best i can
Footsteps leave a trace in rays of sunlight burnt into this skin
Blowing the dust from the ground as I sit and I wait
