Tribeca Burial

The funeral procession
Is stomping on the ground
Of the aisle I walked you down,
As the factory smoke stings the cuts on my eyes.

Your last transgression
Left you on a noose,
I found you under the...

Burning Bridges

So you want to surf the sea?
Well thatís fine with me,
So long as you return.

Soak up all the air you cannot breathe,
A change of scenery,
A desolate wasteland.

Youíre burning bridges for the...

Fire in the Home

3am, Manhattan bar,
This is how I get home,
And though the magazines insist,
Youíre my dream girl,
A house bereft of furniture,
Is what I truly want.

What was once a healthy glow,
Is now the singe...

You came back, minus the feeling,
Locked lips, but Iím still reeling,
From the last time you painted me red and ran away.

Sleep now, thereís no use praying,
If you donít believe in the monsters...

Christmas in July

Paper snowflakes draped across the archway of the living room,
The skyline grey, the mountains blue, weíll set the table for two,
Reminisce, drinking white wine,
Itís Christmas in July.

In the dark of the Picture Palace,
You taught me how to live,
And to the music of the closing credits,
You left me in a mess,
And the flickering at the end of the roll,
Leaves me dreading the lonely...

The fabricís rotting,
Iím hoping for a glance, but youíre too concerned,
With carefully placed cigarette burns.

This is definitely the shortest piece I've ever written, but I feel like I said everything I wanted to say.

In front of the already ashen sky
More clouds roll in
You picked the colour scheme.

Oil Paintings

Dragging your bike down the shorefront,
Is that what you dreamed of?
Is this what you dreamed of?

Your feet torn and rotten,
Iíll wash all the rain off,
And wipe all the pain off.

White Lies On Our Lips

Are we living in colour now?
Everything's drenched in sepia,
Layers upon layers of sunkissed skin,
Come peeling off, youíre free again.

Bleeding from the fast-rotting River Gums,

Drowning in the Mud

Walked down these steps,
Seen all the sorrow they bring.

Iíve trudged through every canal in the West,
Imploring the seasons to swing.

With every descent,

Is putting me to sleep,
Your resolute vitriol,
Has been taken out on me.

The winter is destroying us,
Chapped lips and potholed skin,
The void it leaves is cancerous,

The years that I have spent searching and stumbling over you.
But my patience is wasted on someone so wrong about everything,
Yet I still follow...

And the deserted hallways at 10 o clock,
And the sandstone of the walls that keep the light out.

Now weíre bunking with the living dead,

Putrid rags of yesterday,
Thrown away.

Pressed against the muddy walls,
The linen keeping me enthralled,
And youíre to blame.

Of so many years of pain and joy.

I pull out of my parking space on 17th floor,
The tension could be cut with cutlery,
And my body aches with too many syllables.
