A You

IMG_1187

You have done nothing wrong.

Except for far from being you.

For the 4th time along.

But true to life you feel what is sadly sane.

The same game, but –

Do you still feel you need to burst.

Fourth again?

And as the years pass it’s not so strange to be.

Without pain, or gain.

As the clock ticks it’s time to reclaim.

A life.

A you.

And thats no shame.

Far free from blame.

Someone Died on the Autoroute.


Someone died on the autoroute.

A son, a father and husband.

One minute alive.

The next dead.

A driving error.

They said.

Was the cause of death on the autoroute.

As a daughter, mother and wife.

Fight for life.

To live in sorrow for every tomorrow.

They live after the death.

On the autoroute.

Who said?


Someone said the powers off.

In the old house.

No don’t drink the water from the tap.

In the old house.

People sat cold and thirsty in darkness.

In the old house.

The door to the garden of the old house is locked tight.

Because the garden is full of danger.

Someone said, some stranger.

Then some other stranger says who said the powers off?

And soon the fuse is fixed and lights lit.

This water tastes fine he added, as he filled his cup and burst open the door to the garden.

In the garden he looked back at the beauty of the old house.

As everyone smiled and drank and enjoyed.

Apart from someone.

Another Friend. by Paul Roberts


Another imaginary friend died today

I always thought that they would stay

Play music fill my world with words

With major chords and minor thirds

At the same time that they got older

We thrived we grew and we got bolder

And now that they are disappearing

Our duty to stand up is appearing

They taught us well the wizards sages

Express our hopes our dreams of ages

Demons angels and what we can teach

So listen people who can you reach

Our turn it is to stand up now

Tell the truth and have a row

Sing a song make the words rhyme

Every now and then commit a crime

Wear funny clothes don’t be afraid

Being weird might just get you laid

Tell your truth and be yourself

I will not promise eternal health

Those that live right on the wire

Looking into the light by the fire

They told us stories messages true

and even though it leaves us blue

They are gone we are the bearers

of the the things they ever taught us

Paul Roberts

Only Once in your Life?

img_3751

“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.”

― Bob Marley

Fake


Fake Brompton, fake fags, fake tags on my fake false half ready to part bake bread.

Is China for real? As one which fake magazine once was supposed to have said.

Well it’s as heavy as lead!

Would they fake the thing that save’s a life?

Or abuse and disrespect a wife?

Not a real wife but a fake.

No it’s not the China sea, it’s a lake.
