Freedom

FREEDOM

Not allowed to say a word
Not allowed to make a sound
Allowed to do anything
But there are consequences

Better Safe Than Sorry

BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY

Wear my heart on my sleeve
Come hell or high water
I’ve learnt over the years
Better to go short sleeved

True Name

TRUE NAME

You mined me for gold
Your pick in your hand

No don’t mind me no
Ore waste your time
For my gold is mine
And mine alone

Nominal – a loan
A nom de plume
Plucked from the air
Light as morning mist

A feathery tag
Tagged – you’re it!
Thought me caught fast
Not so fast though

Not so fast as you thought
A puff of wind blew me
Up, up and away
You cry out my name

From the still sky
Not even an echo

Unforgotten

UNFORGOTTEN

I live in terror
Waiting for our next mistake
You are my mother
But then I am your father
Long dead they live on in us

Counterfeit

COUNTERFEIT

Let’s pretend we’re in love
I won’t tell if you won’t
We can fool everyone
Even one another

Stand-in (30b)

STAND-IN

Affection
Love’s bastard brother
A fine thing
In its place
But if used to replace it
Disaster ensues

Pact Tight (29a)

PACT TIGHT

A request
Strictly between us
Inspire me
As I you
Otherwise why are we here
But to embody?

Whoever Has Ears (18b)

WHOEVER HAS EARS

Köln Concert
Over and over
With you then
Without you
Music you can rely on
Others … Not so much

Divorce (15b)

DIVORCE

Eggs don’t bounce
No doubt about it
Broken shell
Yolk and white
Slowly evaporating
Seems that’s all we left

Prey (12a)

PREY

So fragile
Our loved ones, ourselves
So busy
We forget
Till with a jolt we awake
In the eagle’s grasp

~~~~~~~~~~~
