Enhancing Moods

I did not get entirely involved in the Rock and Roll mission, but I love the music a tonne. Blues music, metal has helped me too.

Phones and bones and cheap colognes,

Cars and bars and starlight,

Tones, the jones and sweet unknowns,

Mars is ours, no bar-fight,

In life we sometimes may take a big chance,

Goes well for as long as I’m in a trance,

Energy to enhance ways we stay real,

In all of life, romance and passion to feel,

Signs, fine lines and love that shines,

Tints, eye-glints and flirting,

Spines, soft pines and truth combines,

Mints and hints and sure things,

In life sometimes I have just jumped too soon,

Put it all on the line – over the moon,

Fallen through clouds when I’ve been played the fool,

Left in the desert, my shadow is cool,

Looking for miles, barren landscape is there,

Unlimited time forever we share,

But just sometimes, I’d been caught in a snare,

When courage failed, my connections were rare,

Too soon, too late, over-anticipate,

But in time I think it’s all worked out fair,

Rays, good days and love that stays,

Sand, and tans worth planning,

Praise, eyes glazed and truthful ways,

Glance and stance still standing,

Courage carries and connections that care,

All of our lives we have found they are there,

And in good times, we are surly aware,

To celebrate the moments that we share,

So quick, so slow, see how far it can go,

The truth’s absolutely all I can bare,

Truth and couth and photo booths,

Friends and trends and dancing,

Moves and grooves and love that soothes,

Ends and bends advancing,

Shows and pros and night that glows,

Moods and broods are steady,

Crows and lows, the way it goes,

Blues and news, I’m ready

Something in Between

latest14 015

I wrote this poem in the 1990’s. It reflects the mystery I felt in my life, the uncertain power and the heavy music.  Allusion to Black Sabbath here.

Something in Between

Sky is endless black, and the stars are forever bright,

My eyes fill with fire burning in the night,

Dancing demons, or singing angels,

These timid strangers lead to unseen danger,

——-

My mind drifts deep as I close my eyes tight,

My body falls asleep as I’m pulled into the night,

Spirits fly high, but my body waits below,

I fight to free my soul, with everything I know,

——-

I use my love to conquer all fear,

I have gained control, so I am safe here,

Now I lie awake, but my dreams seem real,

The sun, the moon, the stars – all have my seal

——-

Sky is endless black, and the stars are forever bright,

My eyes fill with icy fire burning in the night,

Dancing demons, or singing angels,

These timid strangers lead to unseen danger,

——-

My mind drifts deep as I close my eyes tight,

My body falls asleep as I’m pulled into the night,

Spirits fly high, and our friends wait below,

I fight to raise our souls, with everything I know
