Divide

Yellow

I inhale my yellow paint,
I consume it drop by drop;
I inject my yellow paint,
So the pain inside can stop.
I abuse my yellow paint,
I rub it on my skin -
And when I'm done my yellow paint
Will colour me within.


Everybody knows Vincent Van Gogh. Even if they can't name a single painting,…

Song of Eddie

A great foreboding shrouds me,
And darkness hides the light;
Demons dance around me,
As I stand here in the night.
Paralysed and speechless,
He suddenly appears;
Robed in spirits flaming,
He looks at me and sneers.

He had a smile across his face,
A crooked blackened line;
He looked into my eyes and…

Spring cleaning!

Made a few minor changes to the site to give it a more organized and fresher front - without too much going on. Everything is still around though, but it's just in different places ;)

Third World

Why did they invent the cog?
Why are we clad in this oil?
Standing behind a machine?
Bleeding in sweat and in toil. 

Why are we assembling and fixing?
Will this give us a crumb or a drop?
If we are not putting parts together,
Why are we holding a mop? 

Why is there first world and thir…

Rush hour

People rushing, like they're running out of time,
Backwards and forwards, like their life's on the line;
No regard for others, where they want to go -
Moving too fast, while life moves too slow.
No stopping to take in the sounds of the street,
No friendly faces or people to meet;
No breaths o…

Bombs

They’ve started again, dropping bombs for no good
They've started taking lives for their own;
Their beliefs fueled by ignorance – clouded by rage
Just because they feel they’re alone.
Nobody hears them, nobody cares
So they make it their point to be seen,
To put forth their dogmas through the she…

Fragile

They are put on this earth, and are taken too soon
To be one of his angels again;
Not knowing the hour when they're called to return,
Now only their memories remain.
Memories of laughter, good times that were shared
Are moments to treasure inside;
Yet so fragile is life, that when our time has come
Those m…

One

In the spirit of love, you enveloped my heart
And you gave me the wings of a bird;
You dusted the scrolls, and wrote out my past
In the words of a song never heard.

A journey that spanned two decades and five
Was a journey to discover my own;
To start at the end, and go back to the start
Just to find I was…
