Life confounds

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
regardless 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

Soliloquy

Serendipitous soliloquy
Does this tirade scan iambically
I pace the floor shouting my declaimation
Trying to rid myself of my consternation

You swore you loved me, chased and wooed me
I began to trust became your devotee
How could I become sucked in to this morass
I feel a sad rejected lass

My ego has nose dived my world has rocked
I am feeling such dismay my system is shocked
This drama is unfolding as I play my scene
Wishing like Shakespeare the villain could intervene

Or at least eavesdrop on this great soliloquy
Instead of an audience composed of just me
I hope across the ether the echoes resonate
Making you aware of my solitary debate

Ravening beast?

What is love is it a ravening beast
Is it mainly lust on a body to feast
Does that longing and awe
Have to gnaw at the soul
Does it titilate the senses
Make us insane

What is love is it a ravening beast
Is it joy exquisite and misery ceased
Where is the balance between
The want and the need
The caring and sharing
On which it must feed

When is love just tender and pure
Not just longings we have to endure
Its tendrils are there to be nutured
To grow
In the early days of love lust
We know not what we sew

Maybe we learn from loves early mistakes
It’s important to survive those early heart breaks
To tame the heart of the ravening beast
To find eternal happiness
Is a goal we may never reach

Love is

Love is the joy,
Love is the motivator,
Love is the buzz,
Love is the decoy,
Love is the lance
stabbing the unwary,
Love is a dance,
Love can be bitter,
Love can be sweet,
Love can destroy,
Love can be a laser
cauterising the heart,
Love can be pain
tearing worlds apart,
Love can be bitter,
Love can be sweet,
Love can be dark
twisted with blight,
Love can be bright
radiating light,
Love is an emotion
hard to define,
Comes in many guises,
Wilt thou be mine,
Love is the bell weather,
Love the holy grail,
If its missing we think we failed.

Dreams

What are the dangers of dreams
Infernal fantastic tortuous schemes
The paths that lead to danger
Leading us to falling in love with a stranger

Life set, priorities to be met
Plans in place, moving apace, direction set
Train moving, tracks straight, becoming truly stulifying
All mapped, feeling trapped, not so surprising

Happiness comes and goes
Life has highs but many lows
Lows can breed dreams
What if – scenario scenes

Perfect life, perfect love just like in stories
That’s how life should be in all its glories

Life imperfect and love low key
Partners drifting apart, less connections beastly

Imperative – Need to find that perfect love
Daydreams sees it clear and corroborative
As the song says
you only live twice or so it seems
Once for yourself and once for your dreams

Sweet dreams, perfect dreams, dreams can deceive
Swinging so high, flying on the trapeze
Launching into space, Twisting in the air
Where to land, here, or way over there

Old path , new path just beware
Stop, think and compare
Each path has some danger
Dream path, love with a stranger

You only live twice or so it seems
Once for yourself and once for your dreams

Would I look?

Would I look at you ,the same ,” regardless”
if your eyes were filled with pain
I would probably look closer, more information to obtain
I might want to support you in your struggle to survive
To try to hold a mirror to the you
behind the pain and strife
I would want to demonstrate the power of belief
Particularly those negatives that can become life’s thief
I would look for signs, that you could love yourself
A must to heal that pain, and to transend the past
Would I look at you ,the same ,” regardless”
if your eyes were filled with pain
I would look closer more information to obtain
