Jealousy

image

I am jealous of every day that I am not with you
I am jealous of the light which falls on your skin
I am jealous of the sun’s rays which penetrate and warm you
I am jealous of everything you gaze upon
I am jealous of every breath you take
I wish each breath you took was mine
And each breath I took was yours
I am jealous of every soul that meets you
The bank cashier, the bus driver, the supermarket checkout attendant
This is not love
This is not hate
This is an evil feeling
With no respite
I am jealous of the man I was when first we met
For he never knew this pain
I am jealous of your bathwater

Do We Really Need A Moon

image

Do we really need a moon?
A balmy night in June?
Don’tcha think it could be soon?
Oh, my dear, why wait?
All we really need’s a sigh
A little kiss before goodbye
But you never really try
To make me swoon

Do we really need a dream?
A played out movie scene?
All I’m looking for’s a gleam
Of love in your eye
And I’ll be yours
And you’ll be mine
Do we really need a moon?
All we need is just a sigh

No One

image

No sorry little tear
No sad little sigh
No tear stained kiss
No breath caught wave goodbye
One torn up little ticket
One seat spare on the train
One unsmoked cigarette
One stepped on in the rain

No warming last embrace
No dying ember glow
No final cup of coffee
No lipstick trace to show
One fool stood on a platform
One wet February day
One sad sorry story
One day you went away

A Modern Romance

image

You say come play
Now don’t say
Baby I love you
Darling why would you
Do that to us

These days
No strings is the thing
So honey believe me
If you wanna see me
Don’t make a fuss

Quit making claims
Anchors and chains
To keep me
Let’s play a modern romance
Don’t sweat it
Just take a chance

Let’s play
The modern way
But don’t say I love you
And I won’t tell
How I need you so much

I need your kiss
How I need to feel your touch

Grey Green Eyes Of Blue

image

It makes me sad
When you say you’re going away
It drives me mad
I can’t find a way to make you stay
Wouldn’t be so bad
If you were coming back some day
To stay

Why is it so
You have this power over me
Why’d you let me go
I didn’t want to be set free
Why, I’ll never know
I guess I’m always gonna be
That way

It’s been some time now
And the feeling still remains
Just the same
As the day you went away
But when friends ask me
I laugh and say
I’m doing okay
I’m doing okay

But I’m so blue
Don’t see how I’ll get over you
I guess it’s true
It’s something I will surely do
Find someone new
With grey green eyes of blue
Some day

A Little Closer To Losing You

image

Little angel, please don’t cry
Let me kiss the tears from your eyes
I sometimes say the most foolish things
Never conscious of the pain it brings
Till it’s too late
I never thought I could feel this way
And the long the short of it
Is, darling, I love you
But every time I forget myself
I get a little closer to losing you

You say you forgive me
But I just can’t forgive myself
I’m losing sleep at night
I keep waking with a dream
That I’m pushing you away
I never thought I could feel this way
And the long the short of it
Is I’m so scared of the fool that I can be
And every time I forget myself
I get a little closer to losing you
