Fever & Fortune

Cure the migraines
Cover the goosebumps
With trillions of cents
And mountains not humps

If I put in the work
Promise me you’ll deliver
If I put you on my shoulder and back
All I ask is you never dry out the river

I might get a little selfish sick
But I’ll still feed them bread and fish
I’m running to destiny’s peak
Just hand me my wish when I finish

Sixes, Sevens & Shaka

With a slice of heaven as bait
Satan smiles and waits
You pace and pant
And inspire a lament
You see a saint at arms reach
Only to be greeted by a witch
And a flying guillotine as your leash
In that moment you experience life as a bitch

The Other Exit

I was an inmate to the incomprehensible
Self harming by staying when escape was so simple
Regretting not restraining from repeated coition and trying to rekindle
Adopting one of her traits and turning into a low self-esteem imbecile
She embodied everything I happened to not be – so cynical
Time and again thought of leaving but didn’t and stayed there detesting myself, explains why i didn’t love her because I had stopped loving myself
And since I was alone in the room with her she became convenient, It became habitual and looking back I definitely needed help
but I was so helpless her sinister acts became the only help
And now im free though left helpless at least I hurt less
All that lingers are the nightmares of withdrawal when she haunts me
But everyday brings excitement as I embrace exiting enigma.

Parole Palace

I dream of a place
Where only new memories make up face
Many nights in sweet dreams I see my promised nest
And when I wake I just hope for happiness
Till then I ll continue songs and poems in verse
Singing – ”one day I’ll  pack my case,
My toes jolly guests to shiny shoes with no lace,
God give me style and give me grace,
And restore my freedom so I can live free of chase.”

De rigueur Deception

A design for survival
So don’t take it personal
Although a cunning vice
Please understand its dependency for thy life
So hence why and the basis to justify
The lie

Salsa In Southsea

Sunday night downtown with Kuba
Smoky cigars and senoritas a fata morgana of Cuba
Gibraltars to the brim with mojito
And on the floor was the rueda de casino
