Supernova

Not really talked a lot

Since you’ve been gone

But you’ve been gone

And you were there

You were there

—-

All of those jazz dances

In the kitchen

Like we were the hit parade

We’d finally made it

The captain of the ship

In outer space

But what is space

Just another slice out of the pie

In this lonely day

Whatever is left after the parade

—–

Now who’s going to sing you

every song

Because every song

Is secretly your favorite song

And tell how special

You are

Because you’re special

You’re a supernova

—-

So I hope someone tells you

All the secrets

And

All the things you want to hear

Like, I hope we stay young

—–

Running through Saturday traffic,

You were there,

now

Like a supernova,

all I’m left with is this black hole

Where you’ve gone away

Away

Away

Not really talked a lot

Since you’ve been gone

But you’ve been gone

And you were there

You were there

Image origin unknown

Ghost

Oh but can’t we be stewards

Of the love we make

Of the earth we inherit

The shadows of the war we make within ourselves

Is cast across this land

Like the shadows from the bombs

And planes ….

—-

Be gentle with yourself

I hope you know, it’s alright

We can’t go back

It’s alright

The earth recovers

Changed

Scarred

But it becomes something new

There in the morning

—–

It starts in her eyes

Her skin

The words we share

And it ends

Somewhere

I imagine

At the end of the earth

—-

And it’s alright

She lifts me up

In the morning

And reminds me

These are merely shadows

From the past

And they too pass over

And then

The morning…

Image origin unknown

Chasing Yesterday

Shine a light out

Into the darkness

Bring some hope

For our time

——-

Lights in the sky

I want to believe

Show me what we lost on the ground

——-

Hang in there love

You’re not out of battery

They said we could be the change

you and I

The

Pendulum swings

Cracking both sides

Now

All and all

fallen angel

We make the progress

In the end

But is that enough to ease our mind

Is that enough to help us sleep at night

——

All of these things we’ve been chasing

When it feels like

We’ve been drifting

——

Shine a light out in the darkness

Be the change you thought we left behind

reach a hand out

To ease our troubled minds

Changing

The lights in this town

Keep fading, flickering

Out

All my dreams

Are buckets of rain

And the neighbours

Keep

Kicking and screaming

Forget about the mind numbing

Games that we play

Just to convince ourselves to stay

The sidewalks made of clay

But our hearts are made of Stone

Forget about it

Are we ever changing

Oh are we really changing

Or are we just wore out?

All these new kids in town

Fresh faced

Walking in like they’re Old Gangster

I’m about ready to

She’s about ready to wear it out

The coffee makes you anxious

And the paper mill shut down

And we all know

That we are raging

Our eyes are aging

Here is the change

All of these days

All of these days

All of these days

If I gave them back to you

What would you

Who would you give them to …

Star Dust

And they told her

Love was supposed to hurt

And so she accepts the pain

And they told us we were made of star stuff

But then they showed us stars burning out …

And so she accepted the disappointment

And I wondered

If anyone ever told us …

If I ever told you

So I’m going to tell you

If she’s not having fun

If she’s not in to it

Then it’s not cool

But if you love her

And read her like Brail

Making poetry from the

Lines of her body

In the light

If you make a safe space for her

To open up

She will come undone

And she will burn with a fire

And a heat so high

It will fill all the hours

And

It will bring stars back to life

And you

You will be useless for anyone else

Because she will have you

body and soul…

But keep in mind

This Love is rare

And it has been said that only gods make love with a love like that
