for Dominic - a forever friend

Come sit with me awhile
beneath the sumach tree
and we'll remember who we were
then talk of who we'll be
How did you grow so warm and wise
so full of quiet dignity?
your light shines brighter, bolder now
your heart is true infinity

I still love you baby

'I still love you baby'
I throw that thought into the air
and let the wind carry it onward
I don't know where you are
but I'm sure that it will
find your lips and kiss them
and whisper it's message
softly inside your mind
before you close your eyes
and fall asleep tonight...

you still act like such a psycho
start to think it's not an act
you make up lies about me
then proclaim them all as fact

you constantly harass me
make me wish that I were dead
then have the nerve to tell me
that my diaries you've read

as if that's not bad enough
you try to offer me advice
did no-one ever teach you
that prying's just not nice?!

you really take the biscuit
you seem to want control
of my inner thoughts and feelings
my heart, my mind, my soul

bird's nest made with Leo's fur

at least the birds appreciate the fact that Leo sheds loads of fur!

you think that if you make me suffer
it will somehow stop your pain
but you can't make me sick enough
to make you well again
so tell me why you act this way
from the bottom line to the top
does being a jerk feel so damn good
that you don't want to stop?

sunny sunday

heart and soul

don't let life harden your heart honey
don't let life narrow your brain
if you sit like Midas counting your money
your world can go down the drain

don't let life smash up your dreams baby
don't let life stamp on your art
if you're wondering yes, no or maybe
you may never chance it and start

don't sell your soul to the devil, dear
he's got more than his share it seems
hold on to what's true and soon you'll clear
the path to follow your dreams

Trying to reason with your reality
Is like trading gold for dust
Life's too short for that insanity
If your brain's turned into rust

Never had much of a propensity
For holding onto grudges
I can't take such an intensity
From someone who never budges

So I'll dust off all my dignity
Try to hold my head up high
Then I'll shine up my integrity
Whilst you make up your next lie

Gratitude is the daughter of Appreciation and the mother of Joy

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life
It turns what we have into enough
It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity
It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend
Gratitude makes sense of our past brings peace for today and creates a vision for the future
Melody Beattie

against all odds

J: I always feel a bit sad when I see young couples these days
M: Why's that?
J: Because I remember how it used to feel when you met someone new and felt so full of hope and excitement at what life might hold in store
M: Mmmn I know what you mean
J: These days when I meet someone I just think 'well this is going to end badly...' So far I've been right 100% of the time!

weapons of soul destruction

your words are like a virus
that's got inside my head
it zaps my self esteem
until I wish that I were dead
'you're stupid' 'you're a moron'
'you do everything wrong'
'you don't deserve to live'
are the lyrics of your song
you tell me I'm to blame
for everything not right
you fill me up with shame
for everything in sight
I try to defend myself
but your weapons find their mark
and I pretend I'm fine
but the light in me turns dark

just another day

There are no knights in shining armour
There are no gentle men
The fairy tales they feed you
All fantasies and lies
You lay down on a bed of tears
And send your dreams to hell
Call me cunt and whore and bitch
Just one more time I swear
And I’ll make you eat your words
till you're as sick of them as me
