I really like the Observer. I think I'd love to have a column with a broad reach that would enable me to do some proper reporting, but keep it on sort of a humorous level. I've always had a very happy experience writing for them.

Whats She Really Like

(words & music by wayne - silver)
Whats she really like
The girl that you see me with
Whats she really like
The one Im so dreamy with
Well, let me tell you shes wonderful
Shes marvelous and shes mine
Told here that her lips, her lips are so thrillable
I cant describe her kiss in words of one syllable
Shes even more than desirable
And whats moreable shes mine
Whats she really like
The girl I go on about
Whats she really like
The one Im so mad about
All I can say, shes wonderful
Shes marvelous and shes mine
Youre asking if she loves me
Well, you dont know the half
Youre wondering if shell leave me
Ha, ha, ha, dont make me laugh
Whats she really like
The girl I go on about
Whats she really like
The one Im so gone about
All I can say, shes wonderful
Shes marvelous and shes mine

Looking For Silence Like The Other Wing

Looking for silence like the other wing
of what I've got to say, landscaping with meteors,
or the planet having a face lift, some of the words
have echoes and some of them proper names,
and a few still homesick for their prison cells,
I keep painting on the white noise of the world.
I keep writing like a wolf in the fleece
of a shepherd moon with a secret life of water.
Scofflaw, a poet, driven into the wilderness
to listen to the voices of disembodied messiahs,
kings of the waxing year, flesh stripped from their bones
like desert shipwrecks waiting for
the providential tide of their tears to return.
God particles that got in their eyes like sand.
I hear them gnawing on their bones like calendars at night.

And I've said it in a flash of demonic indifference
trying to pretend they were listening immaculately
and I was compassionate, as soon as you give
your fulsome assent to a few simple things
you turn into a test of what you refuse to let go of,
as if you were always faith-wrestling with rattlesnakes
you establish a church of denial that will stone you to death.
You save your soul but you render your flesh expendable.
This for That. Betelgeuse for Aldebaran.
How to read a starmap like the Wall Street Journal.
The optical illusion of a bifurcated consciousness,
loss and gain, but the viper can swim across quicksand
as if it were all one wavelength, the Egyptian glyph
for intelligence that hasn't been wounded by the heart
and spiritually materialized into a path to follow.

Do as the wind does with your mind and eyes. Let go.
Blow the stars off your windowsills, treat all holy books
as if they were trees and let go of their leaves in the fall.
There's always a few jewels of insight in a gossip column
but most of it's rut, rant, and judgement, dream gossip
and slaughter, history with an expiry date.
There's always going to be some demi-god somewhere
asking you for your fingerprints like a paranoid magician.
Kick the skulls off your stairs like last Halloween's pumpkins
and start acting like you're in the world and of it.
Break the neck of the hourglass of heaven and hell
and let time pour out of your cells like exorcised mirages.

Illusions are like rats and seagulls and insects. They thrive.
No more than the night, is life a reward. Water
doesn't live its whole life fearing the indelible
like a wavelength of its own immutable mindstream.
There's no big sky blueprint behind why you're alive.
No circus tent covers your foolishness.
And you're not here to answer for everything else.

Liking the kind of guy you are

i'm loving the kind of guy you are,
when you open up,
you proving to me more and more,
that you are not like the other guys,
you are special,
we both have a past with pain,
i love how you always put me first,
it makes me feel special,
but at times,
i wish you can open up more,
and share your emotions with me,
i will like to know more,
of what's in that big heart of yours,
at times it feels like,
you are just as scared as me,
about opening up,
i won't see you no different,
we are all human,
you will still be my repo man,
my caring, sweet man,
that i am growing to like.

Not The Girl You Think You Are

(neil finn)
Youre not the girl you think you are, no no
Theyre not his shoes under your bed, yeah yeah
Hell take you places in his car
That you wont forget, no
And all the people that you know, yeah
Will turn their heads as you go by
But youll be hard to recognize
With the top down and the wind blowing, blowing
He wont deceive you but tell you the truth
Woman, hell be no trouble
He wont write you letters
Full of excuses
Come on, believe you have one in a million
Youre not the girl you think you are, yeah
Someones standing in your place
The bathroom mirror makes you look tall
But its all in your head, in your head
He wont deceive you but tell you the truth
Woman, hell be no trouble
He wont write you letters
Full of excuses
Come on, believe you have one in a million
He wont deceive you but tell you the truth
Come on, believe you have one
Youre not the girl you think you are
Believe you have one
Youre not the girl you think you are
Believe you have one
Youre not the girl you think you are

High Roller

By cheap trick
Jump in my love car
Dont have to go very far
Just far enough to show you a thing or two
I can really swing
The best of everything
And I want to have a thing with you
High roller
What I buy is mine
And I always get the things that I choose
My, my, my, such a high roller
I know hes gone away and left you
Ill take real good care of you
Im in the mood for love
Youre all Im thinking of
Ill make you feel alright when were alone
I can really swing
The best of everything
And I want to have a thing with you
High roller
What I buy is mine
And I always get the things that I choose
My, my, my, such a high roller, is that you?
I knew youd be here tonight
And Ill make it alright
Ill take real good care of you
Ill tuck you in tonight
And Ill make it alright
I know hes gone away and left you
Ill take real good care of you

I 'Use' to Fetch to Catch Havoc

I 'use' to...
Fetch to catch havoc.
Like a trained pet taught,
To stretch obediently for patience.
You know...
The kind that teaches those lessons to learn,
And comprehend.
Better than the one,
Providing the instructions given...
With a required testing done at the end.

'You do what I say!
Or face the consequences of your ways.'

I 'use' to...
Be the one to get upset.
Whenever I noticed 'something' incorrect...
Being thrown to me to accept.
Without explanation that was direct.

'Young man?
Do you understand what I am saying? '

I 'use' to...
Be driven to anger!
When I knew what was handled,
Could have been more effective for me to get...
To the best of my expectations.

Well...
Today I have been cured.
With a chilling out that has matured...
That impatience I had with exposed incompetence.
And those frustrations that once had me in a rage.

'Don't look at me like I'm the one crazy! '

Today...
The peace inside me has been saved.
With an acknowledgement that I must 'first'...
Forgive myself.
Before another becomes amused by my outbursts.
And I now recognize those folks who wish to be entertained.

'Are you trying to test me? '

I 'use' to...
But my patience today is more contained.

My Walking Thoughts

In my long search for what my hearts longs for,
The wind did saw me and my agony,
Flooded with tears of something not found,
In this incompletion of my life,
So shall my heart look to the stars,
The hope that nature will do wonders,
My walking thoughts keep the search

Im haunted by the memories every night,
My sheets become so cold,
In that shivering moment Im at unrest,
Outside the window are unusual winds,
I know where im at peace,
My thoughts searched and found none,
Walking and walking, remain my thoughts

Walking up and down are my thoughts,
So unfocused like the phantoms,
Searching your presence my love,
Which I know is ever absent
My despair extends my pain,
My walking thoughts so futile,
Searching but to no avail,
Such is my love, seeking yours

2011/03/30 Sun-Bleached Blue

A brilliant blue sky in sea-side holiday style
with golden dollops of sunshine awakened
memories of good times, then I broke down,
admitted I am not a visionary who can keep
herself happy, I need the sun and sky, the
azure horizon and velvet green of trees

Without these props my smile comes at a
cost, the beauty of today a gift reminding
me how much I missed the sun-bleached
blue during past grey weeks, thrown back
on my imagination for sustenance, casting
about for a happy vision to replace

A glorious golden sun – the only face that
really fills the empty spaces in my life –
I might have over-identified with the sun-
beam imagery of childhood catechism,
now to replace the power of the sun in
my array of positive symbols – shall I

Still grow away from the sun in my
current life – no, not while its touch
means so much to me

Cacophony

We all have desires, wishes
Things that sometimes keep us running
If we try to ignore these then we live only
According to logic. We try to rule out what
Is known as passion. But why?

Why would anyone try to live a life that is...
Passionless? Well, it is hard to prove that it
Exist, especially if you wish to have it and
Another doesn't acknowledge it. I would like
To recommend living everyday to the fullest
With passion.

Without passion artists would never have created
Such splendid works, created such lyrics, wrote such
Books that takes us all so far away from where we are
Passion allows us to live another life. In fact, it may
Just happen to take over one's life.

That is why so many live passionless. They fear that
It will take over all logic-it doesn't. It only makes
Life more splendid. Love without passion
Is not love at all. It is easy to remember and give a call
To your beloved. Sing them a lovely tune-
If that is how love makes you feel.
Silly. Very silly, but all in the name of passion.

The second you first fall in love is an important event.
It is not something that is to pass fast and go all spent.
But rather so passionate that one must remember to
Save and cherish this passion and keep the flames from
Burning out. Alpha and omega; forever and ever.

To save the love from beginning to end:
One just must remember to not let
The words change into only words.
Or favors turn into mutual agreements.
Because in passion all things are done in love
'Without any if and or buts about it! '

So live life passionately with all the love you can offer
If you feel you haven't any to offer, that is not so
It is an easy thing to do, just give the next person that walks by
A big smile, and there is no telling just why, but
Simply because you live a llife full of passion. A word that is
Hard to define, but when experienced and expressed
It is easy to understand.

When looking for love, stop. don't search. It is looking for you.
Let the cacophony continue until it's sound and love has you found.

Think Like The Sea

think like the sea
be deep
like its oceans
be thoroughly wide
like its domains
arrive at every continent
and welcome the
newness of their
shores

do not just be like any man
staying in one place
digging his own grave
with no lover
crying over his
passing
like any other wind
a gust
a push, another
unwanted pus.

I Always Like The Northern Birches

I always s like the northern birches:
Their view, so downcast and grave,
The fever, which poor souls scorches,
Cools like the mute speech of a grave.

But yet, the willow, which branches,
With their long leaves, cast in a flood,
Is closer to a dream, that scourges,
And longer lives in our heart.

Deploring groves their own,
Their meadows – with bitter tears,
Tell birches to cold wind alone
Their common sufferings and fears.

Believing that the whole ground
Is motherland of sacred grieves,
The weeping willow all around
Inclines its branches with long leaves.

Like The World Getting Old Beneath The Dawn

Dresses of seasons are falling down
From behind the veils of summers winters autumns springs
Nothing has really changed
Between the borders of wars worlds words and warnings
No difference between those
Who still do not understand
And those who think
They got it all just right
Equally grasped in Love
And the all pervading mother Mercy
Against the Mother Courage Infliction
When the rivers of Babylon
Splash our tears again and again
Great worlds lost out little lives found
In the memories of Sion
Old sages growing their beards
Like the white rivers of eternal snow
Covering everything never to melt
Old sages with yellow golden sticks
Walking the same dry deserts
Of survival sagas sagacious
Singing songs of springs ever lost
And autumn breathing swaying the lungs
Hanging upon the last atom of air

The Roses Of Love

The first fruit of impresion really matters and,
I will give you my name for a little bit of your love.
I am in love and i want o tlove you deeply!
For sadness and disappointments are all over my face.
I am ejected with the objections of love without a clue,
But one day i will find my way through to your heart again;
Because the muse of my sadness is all about you.

More sorrows and of the words of the truth,
More sorrows and of the acts of my mind,
But listen to my visions of love like the Schoolmaster.

The syntheses of life is full of hopes and dreams,
But life itself is like the grave of my father;
Because love had taken me that far!

I am your muse and the way of life,
I am your love and the way of peace,
For love is like the grave of my grandfather!
And i ill live to love you more.

I will be back for the roses of love,
i will love you for the kindness of peace,
For this life is what we make out of it;
And my love will touch you always.

I Like The Feeling

1) I get butterflies thinking bout your smile as it surrounds me
And when you go away hours of my day go so slowly
Hoping that youll call for no reason at all just to hear your voice
When you say my name and look at me that way I dont have a choice
Chorus -
I get a funny feeling
When Im around you
I get a funny feeling
& I dont know what Im gonna do
2) patterns run so deep trick me in my sleep its happened too many times
And Im starting to doubt what it is Im all about Im always crossing lines
Life is such a dream but its not always what it seems can turn dark and blue
And even though I know I should make myself say no I cant stop holding you
Chorus -
I just like the feeling
When Im around you
I just like the feeling
Makes me wanna be close to you
Bridge -
Oooooo
3) we could kiss through the night or try to do whats right its a lonely thought
Im trying to face myself and put my ego on a shelf this is my one good shot
And you tell me its ok that youll love me either way is that really true
Need you to be my friend and have you understand that I love you, everything about you
Chorus -
I guess thats the feeling
When Im around you
I guess thats the feeling
& someday well see it through

Who really rules the world

I

At times I wonder
who really rules the world
and it might sound quite silly,
and you may think that every country
is sovereign and ruled by its own,
but at times
I know that land of the free
thinks that she does.

She sees other countries
as her colonies,
where her produce are sold
at prices that she sets
and where her companies
gather resources in.

Her CIA gets others
to help fight her wars
and in Angola, Afghanistan and Iraq
non-American soldiers are dead.


II

Some people think
that secret societies like the ulluminate
and free masons
pulls the economic strings
that sets the way
that the world turns.

They see conspiracies everywhere
and maybe some organizations
do look out for their own
and in a way the really rich
do not pity the poor
and are set in the getting of more.


III

The state of society
and our world portrays
the fact
that Lucifer and his host are sure
that they are in control
and that everything
is on the tract that they set.

Pestilence, poverty, famine, wars
and disasters are spreading everywhere
and no human regards another
as his or her brother
and everything is set
in the here and now.


IV


When I look up in the blue sky,
or see the starry lights
in the dark night,
the beauty of each flower,
animal, plant and tree
tells me
that only the creator God
rules supreme.

Every day my world stays
in His mighty hand
and He is present
everywhere that I go
and I know
that this earth belongs
to only Him.

Chasing The Dream Like The Breeze

Chasing The Dream Like The Breeze
Written by: Wilfred Mellers, Sunday, November 7,2010 @ 12: 32 PM

I had a dream once that fell apart and broke my heart
I had a dream the next day that too went a stray
I had dreamed another one that ended before it begun
Dreams are shattered glass of my past like moments never last

Luck swept out the door too soon for the rains are monsoons
Straws blow in the wind for never too much was that tender touch
Lost in space for so on goes on the rat race
Peace of mind to find so long left behind for its luster no longer shines

The glory days now gone and now comes the dawn
Movements not too smart but I need to be with the beat of my heart
Harder grows the days facing while dreams I am chasing
Once all was clear now it vanishes in thin air

Caught midstream floating from one to another extreme
In turmoil I dreamed for all was never as it seemed
Down goes my self-esteem for sadly it was all just a dream
In my head I scream for all the rivers I swam were all upstream

Giving it all you got but never reaching the top
Struggles I no longer win for the air is just too thin
Bad mouth speaking for they are mice squeaking
Lost is the mystique for now all angles are oblique

I am not the freak in dark alleys sneak
Always turned the other cheek for seldom found what I seek
Done before I could peek went my lucky streak
My soul does not reek like the bleak pipsqueak

Metamorphic is not my physique for it could do with a tweak
Considered an antique and said hands said to be weak
They critique and never understood the technique
I am meek and quite unique to speak

The Red Shoes

Oh she move like the diva do
I said Id love to dance like you.
She said just take off my red shoes
Put them on and your dreamll come true
With no words, with no song
You can dance the dream with your body on
And this curve, is your smile
And this cross, is your heart
And this line, is your path
Oh its gonna be the way you always thought it would be
But its gonna be no illusion
Oh its gonna be the way you always dreamt about it
But its gonna be really happening to ya
Really happening to ya
Really happening to ya
Oh the minute I put them on
I knew I had done something wrong
All her gifts for the dance had gone
Its the red shoes, they cant stop dancing, dancing
And this curve, is your smile
And this cross, is your heart
And this line, is your path
Oh its gonna be the way you always thought it would be
But its gonna be no illusion
Oh its gonna be the way you always dreamt about it
But its gonna be really happening to ya
She gotta dance, she gotta dance
And she cant stop till them shoes come off
These shoes do, a kind of voodoo
Theyre gonna make her dance till her legs fall off
Feel your hair come tumbling down
Feel your feet start kissing the ground
Feel your arms are opening out
And see your eyes are lifted to god
With no words, with no song
Im gonna dance the dream
And make the dream come true
Im gonna dance the dream
And make the dream come true
She gotta dance, she gotta dance
And she cant stop till them shoes come off
These shoes do, a kind of voodoo
Theyre gonna make her dance till her legs fall off
Call a doctor, call a priest
Theyre gonna whip her up like a helicopter
Really happening to ya
Really happening to ya
You gotta dance....

Just Like The Rain

Just like the rain,
That pours from the sky,
My love for you will never die.

Just like the rain,
That falls on the ground,
I will always be around.

Just like the rain,
That falls upon me,
I'm as happy as I could ever be.

Just like the rain,
With it's pure beauty,
It surely is a sight to see.

Just like the rain,
I can now see,
We were truly meant to be.

Just like the rain,
Sometimes warm and sometimes cold,
You make my heart, not break, but fold.

Just like the rain,
Beneath your feet,
Just come over here and take a seat.

Just like the rain,
Watch it with me,
So you can begin to see.

Just like the rain,
Who may always know,
That I need to stay, and never go.

Just like the rain,
Who knows what's in my heart,
It knows we should never be apart.

Just like the rain,
Please just stay,
And never go any day.

Just like the rain,
That descends from the sky,
Please, please just give me a try...

Just like the rain,
It doesn't last forever,
But it might if we're together.

Just like the rain,
I'm asking you,
When are you going to?

Just like the rain,
I cannot wait,
Until I'm finally in that place.

Just like the rain,
That's in that place in your heart,
When am I going to be that part?

Just like the rain,
That goes alone,
Am I going to turn into stone?

Just like the rain.
I'm waiting for you,
Waiting until you finally do.

Just like the rain,
That goes away,
Do you really want me to stay?

Just like the rain,
I want to know,
Should I stay or should I go?

Just like the rain,
Before that time is passed,
Why don't you just ask?

Just like the rain,
So mysterious to me,
You are just as much as thee.

Just like the rain,
I feel on my skin,
When will you let this relationship begin?

Just like the rain,
I cannot wait,
So come and ask me,
Before it's too late.
