Raindrops of My Heart

My soul weeps like a willow

bending but never breaking,

hanging on to hope.

Roaring loud as thunder,

burdens begin to fall

plethora of tears storm.

Slowly suffocating,

all of me is drowning

in the raindrops of my heart.

A One Night Stand

Star shoots across the purple sky
A midnight sigh,
Sunrise, sunsets
With no regrets.
This night’s just one to dispose of
Not turn to love,
This ain’t for show
You come, you go.
That’s it for now, I’m satisfied
With that joyride,
You did me right
Now say goodnight.

A Spring to Forget

Late night stolen moments last spring

Tried to keep their romance hidden

Secret part-time love forbidden

Kept promising her everything

Surprised her with a promise ring

Time she waited, months became years

Now real life resembles her fears

He begged and she believed his lies

Hurt and pain caught her by surprise

Sorry those years ended in tears

Sounds of Music

sweet concords produce

appealing music and cool

majestic sounds that

trigger memories hiding

deep inside my broken heart

Soccer Woes

Liverpool v. Manchester United

First thing I want to say is I LOVE SOCCER! My son played competitively during his youth and I’ve been a fan since he got started.

Watching the English Premier League has had me pissed off many of times. You have players who commit blatant fouls that aren’t called by the referee, although the smirk and gestures of the offending player show purposeful intent. Then there are those players who fall flat out on the pitch, kicking and screaming after the most delicate push, making it convincing enough for the referee to book the other player. The inconsistency in calls creates a good bit of tension amongst players and the remainder of the match looks like a hockey game. I bet if these guys were mic’d up we’d hear “Get stuffed!” most of the game.

This is just my untrained TV linesman analysis, which admittedly is a little bias at times but I don’t think too many fans would dissent from my assessment. Either way, I’ll be sitting snug on my sofa tomorrow watching the Liverpool v. Manchester United match.

Just a little Saturday silliness.
