Poem – Gaza

I don’t think I can sit on the fence today
though it seems the safest place to stay
I’ve tried the left side and the right
But only have I found dismay

Built up strangling years of history
Buzzing like angry bees in soda cans
Its rare to find other than misery
As far as the strip expands

So the past has paved the future
Like a blood red brick road to hell
Of which there is no escape now
For all within who dwell

Inside the borders of agony
Muffled screams of children torn limb from limb
No escaping their grizzly destiny
Paying for last decades sins

My darling daughter stares blankly up into the sky
Pretty little pale blue eyes
Rest her head gently now on the grey brown grass
Kissing her forehead as I ignore the crimson mess

And so the world looks on through its very square eyes
Shocked and surprised (again) at the news
Waiting for someone else’s country
To do something that they refuse

And off to the U.N they go
With their crisp white letters of change
Talks to once more “make a difference”
But ultimately things remain the same

1030 civilian lives
Snuffed out like the dousing of the flame
If only that was enough for both sides
To stop the futile games

Humanity macerated to the lowest
Paint us all with the same brush
No redemption for just the holy
Not while the world bleeds its love

Yet what is to be the solution
When the end seems so far away
What is to come of their futures
In the gunfire smog new day

I don’t have a solution I’m so sorry
I don’t even own a gun
I’ll just pickup the rockets and brave the tunnels
Time for my turn in the greying sun.

LYRICS Deep Space Sublime

Cosmic tails and deep space rays
Flashing stars and shorter days
Find a way to communicate
Trapped up in a slingshot with a distant fate
Alone forever in perpetual space
Flying past earth from out of place
Cold as black and with no sound
Send you a message but you cant hear
Shame really when Im gliding so near
Like a whisper lost in the busy crowd

CHORUS
So I am sending you this message
From deep outta space
I know that you’re not listening
But I’m sending anyway
We both talk a different language
Forgotten in time
Wont you remember me
Deep Space Sublime

Salute me dear as i sail you by
Set Full sail in the summer sky
No earthly season again shall I see
Motion in space of perpetuity
Reach you I must this one last time
Else gone forever in the twinkling eye
One last letter I have to write to you
Fevered panic as time draws near
My final love song like windswept tears of the
Sun and moon as they collide and bind in the sky

THE VELVET ROAD

Velvet roads and white innocence
Of life forever after, ever more

Universal forevers
Mortal promises
Entered so willingly
Desperately searching your heart

White as snow
Red as cherry
Floats to me across the breeze
Butterflies as the thunder storms
Blood as thick as honey
And cascading tears to blind the sun

Entwined now honestly
witnessing windows in pairs of 70
Time forever flowing, stood still but all too short

Be mine
Forever mine
Never to part again
Im yours
Forever yours
Only until eternity.

Adoration so eternal
Love so grateful
A yearning never sated or fulfilled
This is the day you and I
become one.

Now

The clouds part
The sun cries down on me brightly
Drum and bass in my ears like a beating panicked heart

The cool breeze I my hair like ghostly fingers through my soul…
This experience, the now, the existing right this second makes future woes and memories fade as sand through my fingers..  then a traffic horn defibrillates me.. and on with life we go…

Cya mate…

Cya mate.
No time to wait
for.the train to
To take you away
from here
from us
From all the fuss
Exhale relax
Kick back let go
like a hot air balloon.all out of air
Until we meet again
Until we meet again
Until we meet again
We will meet again

A one way ticket
On a run away train
black as the.night
Life.out of.sight

See You Again

torn between two worlds
had to travel to find my love
realised too late what id left behind and all id given up
distant seas, kissing vacant shores
your face amongst the crowds
all the things that do separate us
and all time that is now lost

New Song – One Night Crazy (Lyrics)

VERSE1
I saw your face
the world went hazy
saw your eyes
and i went crazy
theres just so many things i wanna do to you
ah , ah , ah, ah

its love at very first sight so maybe
lets get together and talk about me and you
ah , ah , ah, ah

CHORUS
SO PRETTY LADY
DRIVE ME CRAZY
YOUR LOVE IS BLOWING MY MI AH IH IND (MIND)
SO PRETTY LADY
SEXIN ME CRAZY
BABY WONT YOU BE MINE x2

VERSE2
I go ontop
cause you’re feelin lazy
see those eyes
and im goin crazy
tell me all the thing you want me to do a oo oh
9 hours later you’ve finished baby
the lust is screamin, writhing, totally crazy
im glad your happy with all the things that we did do

CHORUS x2

EXIT
seen your face
and the world went hazy
saw those eyes
and i went crazy
now there nothing left for me to say to you

We Get It Already

your life just a farce
the outer facade
flashy and dancey
and spinning around

one massive compensation
cant even blend in at the station
calm the hell down and
be happy with now

no one needs to see your armour
sure it dazzles, sure it sparkles
but its impenetrable to the thunder
of life, of love of the real world

the damage is great
the damage is real
but mostly to those for which you do feel
and want to get close, but never will
im glad i dont have to swallow your bitter life pill.

one day you will realise
that your fine as you are
lets hope you havent travelled
your lonely road too far…

Dedicated to Christchurch, NZ

The earth quakes
The ground shakes
A reminder that all is not
ours.

Buildings crumble
Towers tumble
And a little girls crying in the street alone.

The dust settles slow
The suns rays glow
Alarms ringing in your mind.

The love of the world
Feel the power unfold
For all of you at this time.

Love to you christchurch and all affected by the earth quake.
Love James

Valentines day

I didnt believe in love
Had grown to be rather jaded
Not because i wanted too
but the world just somehow seemed faded

Then one day life took a spin
Got sick and needed to change
All previous ghosts whisked out the door
Off to travel for a life rearrange

Buzzing around, growing and learning
waiting, hoping, but still not really searching
expectations high and left unfulfilled
but thank god it was worth the wait

I remember wanting to talk to you
from the moment you walked through the door
tried my hardest to sit next to you
and stop my eyes wandering to you for more.

Your personality gently simmering
beneath your regal look
wave crashing, smouldering personality
to keep me totally hooked

Your kiss like effervescent lemonade
sweet and goes straight to my head
Your curvaceous silhouette
burned into my brain with permanent tread

Your intelligence oh so alluring
behind those universal orb eyes
the jazzy rhythms of your dance
sends the crazy in me to the skies

I desperately want to protect you
from the evils of the world
I want to hold and caress you
when into a ball you’ve curled

I want our blankets to be a coccoon
against the cold snap of night
to surround us with warm electricities
and save you from any dream frights

i want to sing with you, hold and hug you
dance with you and see the world
want to rest my head gently with yours
forever to be my girl

I only want the best for you
promise to always be mine
hope you enjoyed this poem gorgeous girl,
happy valentines
