07 Limerick’s

A young man that kept asking questions
Refused to consider suggestions
To stop being so nosey
As perhaps I suppose he
Hadn’t got to all of his best ones

A young man that kept asking questions
Found silence would cause him depressions
So if it went quiet
He’d begin a riot
Noise and chaos were his obsessions

07 Haiku’s

A life lived alone
Until such time that paths crossed
Is less empty now

As we become two
This responsibility
Fills up my daytime

Finding a soulmate
Even if you weren’t looking
Makes life more hectic

This is your story
Of loves final destiny
But who really cares

The end of the day
And nothing has really changed
Except you’re poorer

07 Song

We started as though we were kings
Living this life of joy
Although now reality brings
Times a little more coy

Chorus
This is the life we both wanted
Not knowing what would come
We wait for someone to tell us
How you can know the one

Is the choice to settle or not
Now that the calm has come
But if the game never ends then
How’d we know who has won

Chorus

Life is a chance you have to take
When you don’t know for sure
Uncertainty seems a way of
Keeping the future pure

Chorus

07 Sonnet

I have been here before and thought of you
Not knowing if you were ready to meet,
Your journey began with an opposed view
Although all dissent insists on a beat.
Paths crossed in haste are rarely determined
As intent gives way on destiny’s course,
A lonely desire is nonetheless twinned
As free will is subject to life’s dead force.
So now I await your arrival here
Unsure if I’ll travel this road again,
If arrows fly straight there’s no point to fear
Despite reckonings including such pain.
Ground tread in hope can be retread in haste
But the land cares not if it falls to waste.

06 Villanelle

It’s easy to live with a broken heart
Your vision you need to no longer numb
As this is the time to make some fine art

Now that it’s over you both have to part
No need to fret how to make an income
It’s easy to live with a broken heart

Don’t just sit around you have to be smart
People want macrame rings for their thumb
As this is the time to make some fine art

Being creative now that you’re apart
Sticking dry pasta on card for your mum
It’s easy to live with a broken heart

And now heed the words of Rene Descartes
Think ‘a craft stall’: Cogito ergo sum
As this is the time to make some fine art

Wondering how you can make a fresh start
Upset and sitting around on your bum
It’s easy to live with a broken heart
As this is the time to make some fine art

06 Limerick’s

A young married man from Fife
Regretted taking a wife
And although she knew it
She wants him to rue it
So both their sadness was rife.

A young married man from Fife
Started to beat up his wife
This young Scottish lass
Picked up a pint glass
Ending this angry man’s life
