Laser Boys [198?] A Song

Unexpected Lovers

1] You were back-lit by green. A colourful cut-out

making funky moves, while the smoke machine

obscured, then, revealed you to the boys, dancing by.

But, did they notice? I don’t think they did.

Oblivious as they were to you. Oblivious as you were to them.

My penetrating gaze met yours through the swirling sea of fog.

And, for a second split in time, there we stood, petrified. Fascinated!

Laser boys, connected by a look, that held more than only lust.

So, while the deluxe boys posed,

and the energetic, pound, pound, pounding of LIME

filled every soul with ecstatic liberty;

I took to the dance floor. Weaving in and out of them

to a vacant spot, so full of wonder and longing

that my heart gave vent to a silent, pulsating sigh.

CHORUS 1]

Which you heard! Yes, you heard!

Cause, when I looked again your way,

you were moving gracefully before me

in time with my body, the beat …

the fucking euphoric moment.

So, have you gone to earth to hide

or have you gone to earth and died?

I fear, you’ve died and gone to earth, my friend,

and my nightly, solitary wondering, might never end.

2] All I could speak was the language of love,

while you, spoke many languages under the sun.

In the loneliest watch of the night my thoughts roamed,

despairing, that time was against us.

We might not meet again, till above.

But,

you came to me a second time,

out of the green. Your eyes met mine.

I believe it was love at second sight, that night.

As … onto the cold, empty dance floor we skated

with wings on our heels, compelled by a highly charged,

spontaneous kiss, to drift alone, together,

in the hazy ice green mist. While the laser light

cut out our figures and pasted them on an

empty page in the scrapbook of our young minds.

CHORUS 2]

But, you heard! Yes, you heard!

Cause, when I looked again your way,

you were moving gracefully before me

in time with my body, the beat …

the fucking euphoric moment.

So, have you gone to earth to hide

or have you gone to earth and died?

I fear, you’ve died and gone to earth, my friend,

and my random, solitary wondering, might never end.

3] Yet, still my yearning soul feels a vestige of hope

that one day, as before, you’ll emerge from green mist,

from blackest space, to rescue me, my laser boy,

from my futile wondering, and fill me with joy.

Those moments in our history, are gone.

Gone, but never regretted or forgot.

But, I regret I failed to say

the words that haunt me still, today.

Yes, I knew, but dared not speak of

the love, which haunts me still, today.

CHORUS 3]

So, were you lucky to survive?

Or, have you gone to earth, and died?

 

For Bob [198?]

A Helping Hand: A Song [Complete]

A Helping Hand

1] Are you unhappy, or,

in a lonely place tonight?

Feeling bluer than blue

and losing the fight?

Are you not okay with the hand which life

has dealt you, my friend,

and feeling that your misery and frustration

might never end?

Then,

don’t make the same mistakes I’ve made, this far.

Don’t go crashing in the same car.

CHORUS:

You’ve been travelling in a never ending circle, nose to ass with the sheep.

Snap your link in the chain that binds you; save the others to count you to sleep.

When you’re free you’ll grow to know yourself and not depend on those that hold you back.

And, being free to grow and know yourself, you’ll move towards the good friends that you lack,

who will lift you up to a higher plane,

where you’ll find your loss is now your gain.

And what will be, will be; will follow, and all will be well, yes all!

But, if you should stumble and fall fine fellow, let me kiss your scars away, all!

And,

you won’t make the same mistakes I’ve made this far.

And, you won’t go crashing in the same car.

2] Take a hold of my open, helping hand

and, I’ll wave my imaginary magical wand

and, transport you to a happier land

where only altruism and love

and, none of the bad feelings, I’ve set down above,

exist.

And, you will quickly mend.

Then,

you won’t make the same mistakes you’ve made, this far.

And you won’t go crashing in the same car.

CHORUS:

You’ve been travelling in a never ending circle, nose to ass with the sheep.

Snap your link in the chain that binds you; save the others to count you to sleep.

When you’re free you’ll grow to know yourself and not depend on those that hold you back.

And, being free to grow and know yourself, you’ll move towards the good friends that you lack,

who will lift you up to a higher plane,

where you’ll find your loss is now your gain.

And what will be, will be; will follow, and all will be well, yes all!

But, if you should stumble and fall fine fellow, let me kiss your scars away, all!

And,

you won’t make the same mistakes you’ve made this far.

And, you won’t go crashing in the same car.

A Novel: My Death Waits There…

A news item about my novel in progress. Just to whet your appetites; Part 1 or the first third of the book (around 90 pages) is complete and Part 2 will be under way from today. The great thing is that the writing process and the story are gathering momentum and I’m happy with the progress. The individual images are there just to give feeling to the atmosphere I am creating and the period I am re-imagining. You may call me a spoil-sport, but, there will be absolutely no plot spoilers. All I will say is that there’s a a mysterious, thrilling and nostalgic roller-coaster ride ahead fuelled with horror, sex, mob frenzy, a very unusual (to say the least) love story.
