I know I disappeared from your life
I had no choice
I had to escape
Let go
Embrace silence
so that my thoughts could find peace
Lick my wounds
Grasp a new reality that I was unprepared for…

I didn’t do it to hurt or punish you
I did it to survive
To heal
To move forward
Not dwell in my past,
nor fester in my present
but dig deep to solve the puzzle
Find the part of me that I lost when he destroyed my world

I have returned
A little guarded
And a lot happier
Today I am whole
and it feels great!

Two Strangers


Two strangers
on a crowded street
it seems so right
that they should meet

It seems so right
to take the time
discover one another’s minds

No lying
what’s the point of lies
they share no friends
-they have no ties

Just for the day
they’ll share their lives
then walk away
with fond goodbyes

Two strangers
on a downtown train
crossing paths,
is this insane
maybe they should meet again?

fate is such a crazy game!

Two strangers
in a city bar
talking fast
and laughing hard

Before they know it
light turns dark
and they’ve both had
a change of heart

Two strangers
feeling so at home
life’s too short
to be alone
this time
they won’t miss the signs

Love is now on both their minds


So I Lied


I lied
yes lied
made the whole sick story up
to shock you
to watch you lap it up
thinking you’ll use it against me one day
Let you believe you had something over me

and it was fun

You underestimated me
I saw right through you
and I played you
because that’s all you deserve
and that’s all you’ll get from me

So before you go throwing it back in my face
in front of your chosen audience

Think twice

Because it will backfire on you
and your pathetic hunger for power

You want some dirt on me?
I’d be happy to fill you in
I’m quite the storyteller
so where should I begin..



If only I had money
I used to tell myself
Yes money is the answer!
I need it now or else…
I’m fed up with these problems
my mind is such a mess
I need to buy a whole new life

You can buy happiness!

But now I see the wisdom
in craving inner peace
instead of wanting money
my heart just needs release
from all the things that weigh me down
– the people I can’t change
This crazy world we live in..

from all the guilt and blame

Jealousy and anger…
insecure fear
Proud and stubborn heart of mine
Stop judging
be sincere!

Leave behind the negative
embrace a happy vibe
listen to that part of you
that’s grateful you’re alive

Forget about the money
the things you need are here
Health and love and happiness
you’ve got it all my dear !




I wanted to forgive you
Don’t wanna be alone
but when you close your eyes to things

you’re really on your own

Staring into space
..hours pass me by

Fake it till you feel it..
or let love cool and die?

The war inside myself
Is tearing me apart
Giving in means living in
a crossroads with my heart

A new life now awaits me
with or without you?

‘Who cares what they think or say’
you throw at me

..I do

Don’t wanna be this person
angry, hurt, confused
Loving you was easy
but now I just feel used

Go in peace
it’s over
I can’t take any more
My heart and head joined forces
cease fire
end of war.

Fat Toby


He lives in the hundred acre wood
So anyone would think his life is good
but Toby has a million things to do

‘What’s that noise
a bird or kangaroo?’

He has to be alert to every threat
if he could just chase butterflies
his life would be perfect!

But Toby needs to stand guard day and night

Dingo’s and goanna’s make him run away in fright

Then there’s all those screeching cockatoos

the kookaburra’s laugh at him

Oh what’s a cat to do?

Rats and bats are driving Toby nuts
sometimes he stays up all night
just protecting us!

Toby is a very stressed out cat
And that’s the reason why our Toby’s fat!

I see a hero


She, never came back

Left him with four kids
..and a mortgage

She never cared that
it was all they had
She said ‘Sell the house’
’cause I want my share
from this marriage’

He struggled through the pain
drove him half insane
had to start again

..with his offspring

Breaking down car
a fridge on the blink
bills never ending
and no time to think

Up packing lunches
waking four sleepy heads
Then working full time
so they all got fed

Four little tearaway’s
running down the beach
sun streaked hair
and a surfboard each
Sure they were feral
with their mother gone
but when he played guitar
they’d all sing along

Time heals wounds
and a sense of humour helps
the best gift he shared with them
was ‘laugh at yourself’

Now his four grown kids
share the stories of their youth
touching and hilarious
and every one is proof
that what he gave was everything
to get them here today
A hero in my eyes is he
though wrinkled, old and grey
