The chameleon tale of me
My life’s wayward story
Scribbled on scraps of paper blood
Sinister forces
Lurk behind Obsidian walls of truth
Ever closing in
Sucking air from this lonely room
Bloodshot trails
Failed romances
Futile second chances
I chuckle at the “experts”
Who banter about “Clinical Depression”
My strange but loyal lover
Man made term of hype
I know her as the blues
I’ve always felt her pain
Like standing in the melancholy rain

ISRAEL RAMBLE (A song about destiny)

I’m wide awake
Waiting for the news to break
Israel blasts the infidels
Damascus blown straight to hell

Skeptics rally
Babies cry
Teardrops well in old men’s eyes

Spinning tales of right and wrong
Explosive tempers

The Who
Rocks the Super Bowl
Holding on to fame
Ripping just the same

Wish I were a rainbow
GPS to gold
Wish I played guitar
Wish my feet weren’t cold

Wish she felt my fondness
Focused on embrace
Wish my deepest thoughts
Were etched upon my face

I dreamed I was a poet
Words of bleeding prose
Spitting piercing truth
No matter where it flows

I can’t control the future
I wouldn’t if I could
Holy hands
They guide me
Completely understood
