Money and Me

Money and me, we’re such a team
Money and me, inseparable we
Money and me, together we dream
Money and me, in harmony

Money and me, such synergy
Money and me, so much in love
Money and me, a power to be
Money and me, we’re hand in glove.

On The Beauty of Betelgeuse

Black up there
Tonight - good seeing
For ‘scopes
And hopes;
Orion reminds -
Betelgeuse is blowing.

Teasing, in a way,
The competition -
Who's to go before
The other? -

Yet we partner, blushing
Knowing - a sort of conscientiousness -
For neither bears control;
We're warming -
The hidden disingenuousness
Is playing out our role.

Betelgeuse's beauty
Bears a legend,
Frowning at the portent
In our stubbornness.

Solitude

My solitude aches -
Deep within my tissues.
O! why so many issues
For me to bear alone?

My solitude drags -
Hauls me through the mountains.
O! why so many fountains
Of tears for me to bear?

My solitude sucks -
Rips me through its vessel.
O! why this bloody hassle
To weigh my shoulders down?

I'll swap for pain -
A lesser strain
Of torture;

I'll trade for grief -
The lesser thief
To nurture.

But solitude -
The perfect food
To see me screwed
In solitude -
The perfect mood
To see me brood
In solitude…

Misconstrued?
Ah-ah dude!
No rectitude
Or fortitude
For those like me
In solitude!

I'm so subdued,
My thoughts extrude -
My brain is stewed!

So don't elude
The final truth:
It's painful here
In solitude,
Alone.

Sorrow Under Mist

Mist -

Giving wispy vapour to the breath,
Cool calm to autumn afternoons,
A hovering air of mysticism
Over brooding lakes -

Was different here,
Affording company, closeness -
A caring arm around her shoulders.

In the eyes, a once-clear oceanic blue
Wavered under water -
Tears telling torrid truths
She couldn't face -
Like the glowering image in the mirror
You don't see in your mind's eye
Of compensation; delusion.

We see her sitting on the concrete steps
That led down to the dew-laden garden.
She's peering up, sensing her diffuse companion,
Refreshing in its chill; giving crispness
To the stealth of dulling evening.

But the bite of air couldn't lift the sorrow
Of pale youth in love,
Shouldered by a not-in-love and scoffing eye.

Rejection hurt;
Hurts -
Wrenches deep -
Emotion that we can't deny!
