The People We Were

I miss the way we used to talk all the time
About nothing in particular
Just our daily lives

All those years ago I guess I was blind
To the comfort it brought
I now wish I could find

I miss our days that went of script
Those mini adventures
That went downhill quick

Before we got bogged down with the pressures of age
When our days were ours
And the nights would fade

I miss our club and it’s almost daily meetings
The 6 bottles of wine
That often saw us sleeping

The youngest old wives the world has ever known
Wherever we were
That place could be home

I miss all these things but the memories I hold
Of the people we were
And the stories now told

For no matter my age or who I may miss
I know they’re still there
To help me reminisce

Too Long In The Dark

I wanted to believe
That hope didn’t lie
I was never deceived
True love couldn’t die
And for all my failings
Though I know I’m blind
That smile sent me sailing
But that smile isn’t mine
In a second I was torn
Not in choice but in torment
I saw my hope as forlorn
What still remained of fate spent
So what then is left to say
When ones dreams are broken on rocks
And no matter how hard you pray
Your face will not hide the shock
Left alone just too long in the dark
What sparks now and then never makes flame
And though we may reminisce about the start
It seems that time will never come again

The Fool In The Photo

I should know by now but never learn
That in those pictures I will always find
A hidden tear waiting to burst
When only smiles existed in that time

But still I look as the pain is sweet
And if this is torture I will not break
I live the moment as if it were now
The memory so clear it could not be fake

As it did then I feel my heart begin to race
See the reflection of a candle dance in your eye
Allow a hint of your perfume to linger in my head
I would live in that moment until the second I die

But try as I might it cannot be held
And as always before I can only curse
The fool in the photo who hid from life
In a risk free existence infinitely worse

The muse left unaware

 

 

 

The truth of words written but never said aloud
Remaining on the page in view but never found
Breathing life into thoughts and making them soar
Allowing space to relive, reminisce and adore
Of the tales they inspire the muse left unaware
Penned in their honour yet hidden from their stare
A glimpse now and then sometimes offered on a whim
When the mood takes and finds courage from within
Yet more of what flows will remain forever out of sight
A simple, silent homage to those that cast their light
