Behind the Smile

….lurk the mysteries… That nightmares are made of Deep dark gloomy seas Yonder, there’s that mast Coated in seaweeds That in one place, shall be cast Tides come and go Sweeping the still sand Nothing will they tow In that quiet stillness Pulling away the strand To reveal irony’s caress

My Bad Boy

It’s a complete U-turn Could I have expected it? My life’s own weird pattern The drinking, earring, piercing The right frame for a misfit Clouded with the smoking Resist! I scold myself Just try to swim fast upwards! Against those whirling currents Which suffocate and blind me Harshly pushing me backwards Till there’s nothing to […]

Loser-Fool Football Club

A great city, there once was, majestic Where the great River Mersey splashes And where everywhere, was weaved, with magic Now, in full ruins with shamed pavements Soiled are the Beatles’ ageless bases Bearing the Scousers’ woeful runts and grunts Oh, keep bleeding, land of the North-West Forgive the sins of Anfield Road, Oh Lord!

Just a word

You know I don’t need much Just feeling so hollow The situation’s such That I simply don’t know Broken, broken, broken Where are you? Where are you? Shrunken, shrunken, shrunken All I need is a clue It’s now taking its toll The unknown’s piercing me Have mercy on my soul No toying cruelly Our eyes […]

Incompetence!

    Can you see the price We pay for their vice? Shameless usurpers And merry-makers That’s what defines them Which we should condemn Keep pulling your hair Fall into their lair These greedy vultures Are selfish dodgers Leaders of Chaos They don’t give a toss About our fate Which, leaves us irate O great […]

Crossroads

The bare roads finally meet Am I ready to move on? Is it time for a clean sheet? Blistery cracks on my heart Make me envy that falcon On his own, always apart A harsh battle of demons But, with one single outcome That will free from the prisons Dragging the chains for so long […]

One of us

  Same colour within Everyone’s akin   But who really cares? Hear our prayers   Whoever you are Wherever you are   Just cut it open And your thoughts, sharpen   Dare open your eyes That we’re all allies   Despite the divides And prejudiced tides   One start, one end There’s time to amend […]

A spin

  Baby, let’s go for a spin Where, I hope, something will begin   Make my hair-locks flow in the wind And the past skeletons rescind   Our hands will do the talking While the eyes will be focusing   Yours, on what is lying ahead Mine, on all that will be unsaid   The […]

Yet, still a girl…

Never been the kind To be all girly Different in mind Not even shrilly   While they all held dolls Played with dinner sets I chose to kick balls To send in the nets   While they painted nails Gushed about boyfriends I thought of travails Unconcerned with trends   I rode my bike, flew […]

The Beckoning

  So soft and lush Treats that seem to blush   Feel the juiciness Arousing wildness   So delectable, Fancy a nibble?   I just can’t resist I want to be kissed   Looking at them smile I’m feeling tactile   Driven to touch them In sensual mayhem   Come, give them to me I […]
