Try to be Happy

Some things in life are simple
Some out of your control
You can overthink it all you like
For a lot, you’ve not got a decision making role
But there are some steps more considered
That result in big forks in the road
Where a choice will lead to change
Build paths anew, make other paths explode
The pros and cons can be listed
You have to weigh the good and the bad
Consider the impacts on love ones
Maybe gamble to find the thing you never had
It’s not possible to see the outcome
You can see the damage to be caused
So such decisions need time
Not taken lightly, they cannot be forced.
In the midst of a dilemma
Overcome by concerns and fear
Sometimes the decisions are still simple
Follow you heart, be yourself, keep hope near
Be all you can be
Try to be happy
You will do the right thing.

More Than Anyone

Blessed with the joy of hope
When new heart feels all that is to come
Elated promise without constraint
Love you more than anyone
Perhaps an empty vacuous high
Like dreaming on the furthest star
This time substance might be there too
There’s a chance, this is right
Can’t put my hand on it
Can’t grasp why I feel what I feel
I’ve no basis to be in this emotive state
But this infatuation might be real

Melancholy’s Veil

She’s stands alone near tube train rail
Forlorn and low, under melancholy’s veil
Her eyes are dark, devoid of light
Her heart a shadow black as night
Whomever she has lost or left
Her soul was torn, her hope bereft
A broken woman, sad and meek
Lacking the will to live, too weak
To raise her head or meet your eye
She shrinks from life and wonders why
Her path became so overgrown
To force her down, all on her own
With thorns and ghosts and things to fear
No way out, and no one near
Her footing lose, no way to climb
No meaning, no plan, no positive sign
The tube arrives and on she steps
An empty shell since she left her ex.

Physical Love

Hearts pulse
Pressure raised
Synchronised
To one phase
Flow and motion
Harmony
Coursing passion
Serenity
Sparks jump
Ecstatic bond
Physical love
Firm and strong

Infatuation, real?

Blessed with the joy of hope
When new heart feels all that is to come
Elated promise without constraint
Love you more than anyone

It’s an empty vacuous high
Like dreaming on the furthest star
This time substance might be there too
There’s a chance, this is right

Can’t put my hand on it
Can’t grasp why I feel what I feel
I’ve no basis to be in this emotive state
But this infatuation might be real

Leavers Remorse

Going through the motions
Looking like I’m really here
In my head I’m away with you
A last dance filled with fear
That I will always be alone
Just me, no partner, no sound
I miss you terribly; it’s pain
I fear never having anyone around
What if I got it wrong
What if my sights are set too high
What if I shouldn’t have ended it
Shouldn’t have reacted the other night
We’d be happy now, with hope
We’d be making love once more
I’d be able to be present in the day
Knowing “an us” was in store

Incomplete and Happy

It’s wonderful to be incomplete
To not be done, be on a quest
Searching, changing, learning
This won’t be as good as it gets
There’s more in life to go for
Even if you’re happy with your lot
Have joy in days and nights
Appreciate all that you’ve got.
It’s good to want, dream big
Not feeling absence, seeking more
A solemn vow to find someone
To embrace, together life explore.
Fulfil your heart felt desires
To be you, be seen, be loved
In time to find an intimate one
Who is all others placed above
Until her hand I find, with faith
There’s joy in every forward step
Incomplete and happy,
I just haven’t found her yet.

Echoes of Intimate Us

Bonded, bound.
To those blue eyes
Secret soul I found
Ultimate loving prize

On a path to joy
But took a turn away
In one step hopes destroy
Lamentable sad day

Haunting azure glow
Echoes of intimate us
A love I will always know
Now reduced to dust

Room to Let

Mind ticking over
Without focused care
Thought jumps to thought
Frantic, erratic, nothing there
There’s a hole far inside
Your mental space vacancy
Thinking once used for you and I
Means heart and head lie empty
It seems even when apart
You resided deep within
A modelled version of you
Where I knew what was happening
A room where I always had a view
So when we said no more
You left me twice, once for real, then
You vacated my internal penthouse floor
I’ve mentally bounced around
As I care take your room
Lonely, with a constant sense
You’ll be back soon.

But you never will.
