One Chance

Gypsy Woman

Gypsy woman, deal me again,

These Tarot cards are not my friend,

Each day begins, then it’s over,

One by one, all wasted sober.

 

I breathe you in, you breathe me too,

We are as one, I become you,

Cocaine whispers, heroin eyes,

Truth becomes love, one of life’s lies.

 

Never knowing what ours could be,

The red light obscures your beauty,

Hold the spoon over the candle,

Life is just too hard to handle.

 

The Ouija board tells our story,

Maps out our life, all our glory,

Take my hand, hold on forever,

We will always be together.

I have just begun putting my words overlayed on to images to paint a more vivid picture. I am posting my first three here. Ken

Hold Back The Rain

Take Me Home

The Wreckage

Forgotten

As I sit here next to your grave,

So overgrown and uncared for,

I think about the life you lived,

And wonder if you’re remembered.

 

In life you were always alone,

Looking for something or someone,

Trying hard but going nowhere,

Letting your life just pass you by.

 

But the sand in the hourglass,

Eventually ran its course,

In the end it found you, alone,

So many years, nothing to show.

 

Laid to rest on a cold fall day,

All the chapters are now written,

Yes as I look upon my grave,

I wish I had done so much more.

Renaissance

 

My new book, “Renaissance”, went live on Kindle this morning. Now it is available in paperback on Amazon. With this book I have made a serious attempt at change and growth. I have also broadened the subject matter, from gladiators of ancient Rome, to Vincent van Gogh, and a wide variety of other topics. Hope you like it, thanks for looking, Ken

More Than Words Can Say

It’s late, and I’m thinking about you,

Can’t seem to stop, still wondering,

Wondering, are you coming back?

Or will I keep waiting for you,

Waiting for the day when you know,

That this is where you want to be,

That this is where you want to stay,

Here with me for all of our days,

Here with me for all of our nights,

All of our lives and so much more,

More than words can say.

Missing You

Missing you more than usual,

I always do, but today it,

Is such a huge gap in my life,

An empty place I can’t hide from,

A loneliness that gets so strong,

I don’t know why I’m feeling it,

More today than any other,

Some things I’ll never understand.
