My Own Man

MY OWN MAN Made the decision, the hard call To be here, by myself; do it on my own. The phone doesn’t beep, doesn’t ring at all Got to be my own man, got to do this alone. No one here in the evening, no one here at night No one here in the morning, … Continue reading



LONELINESS The darkness rolls in once more But there’s no one coming home To knock at my door. The happiness and love long gone All that’s left is an empty blackness; Refrain from reach out – Stay strong and resist. CHORUS: Days and nights smashed into one No one to turn to, nowhere I can … Continue reading


There You Were

There You Were I’d shut myself off from the world Locked the door and thrown away the key Promised myself never again – didn’t need the pain But then there you were.

The Gentleman

The Gentleman The gentleman: a rarity; a dying breed. A patient, caring man – solid and dependable Always there in times of duress To support and cater to every need.

Glabrous Gorillas and Perfumed Peacocks Standing in line at the door, confused Not sure where I’m going anymore A gym or a nightclub, not too sure.

Candles burn through darkened night, Exposes the corners of your truth; Splashes them with enchanting light, Revealing every part … Continue reading



DOORS Unexpected and out of the blue Came out of nowhere Into my field of view. Thought nothing of it; just someone new. I said hello, you said “oh hi” I can’t explain it, I don’t know why But this felt different Have to see this through. CHORUS: Your truth is hidden An open heart … Continue reading


Thanks To You

Thanks To You Thanks to you I was crushed and destroyed Pieces of my heart and soul scattered on the floor Years of my love thrown aside and annulled. Left with nothing when you walked out the door Replaced with tears, pain and anguish Sleepless nights and endless days Prayed for your return to extinguish … Continue reading


I Will; But I Won’t.

I Will; But I Won’t There are many things that I would do for the woman I love But there are also many that I can’t compromise, those won’t budge. I’ve learnt many lessons over the years Through the smiles, the laughter and the tears. I won’t accept jealousy and mistrust Those thoughts left unchecked … Continue reading



UNEXPECTED Sitting at home, pondering the choice To suit or not to suit, asked my inner voice. I choose the sophisticated option, slipped on the slacks Gathered my keys, phone and wallet; didn’t look back. Meandered through the crowds, the city alive Live music and laughter filled me with happiness inside. Climbed up the stairs, … Continue reading
