Faking It

Please don’t think,

Darling boy,

That you’re special

In any way

As you were not

The only one

Who saw to me

That day


Sinderella

Is that
really
the time,
he said,
I should
grab my
things
and leave

Well don’t
let me
keep you,
she said,
as I’ve
got others
to please

Ticking All The Boxes

It was right, I think, to call it a day

As were hardly

Love’s young dream

I mean you put in the graft

And it did make me laugh

But you’d never have made me scream


Dirty Minds

As you don’t seem

To get it

I’ll explain it again

Real quick

It wasn’t your love

I wanted

It was merely your…

Conversation

Birds Of A Feather

It still amazes me

To this day

That you even read my rhymes

Don’t get me wrong, my friend

It pleases me no end

But I do worry about you, at times


Wonderland

It’s nice
to think
I matter

That what
I feel is
shared

But really
I’m as mad
as a hatter

Surely no one
else is this
impaired?

Bait

It was never

Going to be you

Not that I

Would’ve wanted to

It was always just

You reminded me

That there would be other

Fish in the sea


Indebted

Thank
you so
much
for
being
you

Otherwise
I’d still
be wandering
around
without
a clue

Waiting
for
the days
not to
feel
so blue

And
hoping
to find
a love
that’s
true

La Belle Dame Sans Merci

Please don’t think me arrogant,

Inconsiderate or unkind

It’s just that if I must

Towards another man be thrust

Then I think I’ll lose my mind


Twinkle

You
say
that
look
in my
eye

Sends
shivers
down
your
spine

I hope
one day,
when
you
look
at me,

That
you’ll
send
shivers
down
mine

A Sucker For A Drummer

I cannot deny

That there are times

When I imagine the singer in the sack

But mostly the guy

Who really catches my eye

Is the one with the sticks at the back


‘Outlandos d’Amour’

As my
soul
swoons
to his
song

And my
toes
tap to
his
tunes

I
remember
the
romantic
revelry

Of
those
academic
afternoons

A Younger Model

Will you still love me

When I am old and grey

Will you still want me

To touch you in that way

Will you still need me

To kiss you goodbye each day

Or will you just find someone else

And simply walk away


A Risky Business

We really
shouldn’t
do this,
she said,
it isn’t
the right
time

It’s now
or never,
he said,
for I’ll
soon be
past my
prime

Allure

When I stopped the anti depressants

My feelings of lust were incessant

My thirst for bad boys,

Conmen and cowboys

All came back with a vengeance

(Well, those on TV shows at least)


Angels & Devils

Good men
do bad things

And good
women do too

If I was ever that way
inclined again

I’d do bad things
with you

Melting

Don’t get me wrong

It’ll take much more

Than just a smile

For my heart to thaw

But until such time

It doesn’t mean

That we can’t have fun

In between


Your Smile

Even
though
my
heart

Resides
in the
deep
freeze

Your
smile
has the
power

To make
me weak
at the
knees

Complex Needs

We can’t keep doing this

He said

Something has to change

I fear that our dynamic

She said

Is too hard to rearrange

On A Promise

What happens when the music stops

She said

Do we have to go home?

Wherever you end up going

He said

You won’t be going alone

The Long Hello

I walked past your house

Every day

But never knocked the door

—–

I watched as you passed

Every day

And always hoped for more

Breakfast

I know that it

Has been a while

But sure as eggs is eggs

You do have such

A winning smile

And a cracking pair of legs

The Siren

I hear her calling my name,
Luring me to the murky depths.

Her song, beckons me.
Her promise, tantalises me.

I am compelled to listen.
I am urged to respond.

But she is all the way out at sea,
And I never learned to swim.

Overlooked

What would it take

For you to notice me

Wear a skimpy dress

Paint my lips so readily

Well all I have is my words

So I guess that counts me out

As there’s nothing at all about them

That suggests I’d like to hangout

Quickstep

Run around

Jump up and down

There’s a new love in town!

He’s really neat

And ever so sweet

This black heart skips a beat

I think that now

I’m ready for more

I want him to whisk me

Across the dancefloor

‘Want’

An artist for the ages

Your words leave me floored

What else is there to say?

Other than please, give me more

Hard To Grasp

I’m not sure you ever loved me

Or even liked me very much

Perhaps that’s the root

Of all this pain

The lack of human touch

Like Lightning

I remember

When I thought
it was you

And
I made my
feelings
plain

But
then
I met
him

And within
seconds
I knew

I’d never
think about you

Again

Blindfolded

They
say
there’s
someone
for
everyone

But
how
can
that
possibly
be?

I’m
surprised
anyone
can
find
anyone

Trapped
in
this
insanity

The Losing Battle

We
need
to end
this

She
said

This
relationship
is toxic

Then
why
when
we’re
together

He
said

Are
things so
incredibly
erotic

Slap And Tickle

I
have
tried to
move on

My
feelings
for you
to shelve

But
when
push
comes to
shove

I just
can’t
help
myself
