Life!!!!!

What is it with life
it has ups and downs
Pleasure , pain, joy
and heartbreak
do the rounds

Would that our lives
could, just be pleasure
No pain or woe
for us to measure

Why is it, things
go so wrong
Bad things happen
just be strong

How do I deal
with the days
that are black
when the roof
caves in
the cheque
bounces back

I have to dig deep
in my reserve
in my internal resevoir
my beliefs must serve

What is it with life
it has ups and downs
pleasure, pain, joy
and heartbreak

Life can confound
What is it with life?

Unwanted Guest

Black with eight legs sitting in the corner
Web nicely built quite a transformer
Sure to eat the flies, must be good order
What makes me freak out, I am not a barn stormer
Not sure if it was eye contact, but both went rigid
Want it out my house, thats my baser instinct
I need my new weapon to banish it from my life
Might be a flamethrower, but thats too much strife
I back out the door, watching it all the while
Need to turn my back to reach into a pile
I reach for the catcher and remove its cap
Test all the mechanisms, ready for spider zap
Back with the spider now have to be so brave
After all its maybe half an inch and I am a six foot knave
Eyes swivelling wildly I turn the machine to suck
Poke it towards it, it works thats good luck
Spider in the tube, should I put on the cap
Maybe not that brave it might land in my lap
Catcher held out in front of me,leave the sucker on
Run for the window I shake the tube, is it gone?
Oh no the little varmint is crouching looking at me
Now I am wondering, which of us should flee
I shake it out again and this time it has gone
Slam the window shut, Poor spider was I wrong?
Half an hour ago I was sleepy ready for bed
Now my veins are pumping adrenaline instead

Unanswerable Questions

Am I truly happy?
Could I have been happier?
Did I make the right choice last year?
If I had taken a different route, would I have less fear?
Does happiness have a pinnacle?
Or will tomorrow supply me more?
If my choices had been different,would I have a better outcome?
If I could rewind would I climb a different mountain?

Take a deep breath and stop the angst
I cannot obssess about what might have been
Am I content in the now?
Working on that with all my know how
I have to adapt, learn to change
Look to the future to rearrange
The past is the past it will help me to learn
But if I obsess, I won’t get a return

I can day dream the changes my life would have
But I will never know, its a life I never had
Am I truly happy?
If not I must strive
Move into the future
New choices to derive.

Trophy in the sky

Searching looking for something new
My whole being divided in two
Emotional and physical needs kept apart
Hard to do it wrenches the heart

Touch my mind move within
Share our lives like breeze on skin
Knowing in my heart as time goes by
Just another trophy in the sky

Deciding the straight or crooked path
Has to be the latter with a laugh
Starting off with tempting situations
Giving and receiving sexy invitations

Touch my mind move within
Share our lives like breeze on skin
Knowing in my heart as time goes by
Just another trophy in the sky

Stirs the hormones wakes the senses
But its fantasy there are fences
Emotional and physical needs kept apart
In order not to break the heart

Touch my mind move within
Share our lives like breeze on skin
Knowing in my heart as time goes by
Just another trophy in the sky

Dizzy dancing thoughts alit
Swooning surreal intoxicated skit
The players acting like you and me
Unable to be completely free

Touch my mind move within
Share our lives like breeze on skin
Knowing in my heart as time goes by
Just another trophy in the sky

Friends with benefits changes yet
To just friends another set
Sharing life more in the round
But less important newer ground

Knowing in my heart as time goes by
Just another trophy in the sky
