no band

thanks Gigi and Marye, I'm trying to improve my song-writing, I hope the poet's don't mind. Still trying to paint my masterpiece.

green glass

they wait in the dark den
on the pin striped couch
with the glowing glass lanterns above
solemnly picking at their food
on the green glass dishes
while the woman in the broken armchair
in the corner
with the black bow
in her graying hair
sits in sorrow sadness
waiting for nowhere

wide-open feeling, by Peakin, 8/13/08

Wake up, dig it, get jiggy with it
Out the door, and then spin it
Don't look back, gotta go
Find something to call your own

It's a wide-open feeling, as you fly through the air
It's a wide-open feeling, to release all your cares
It's a wide-open feeling, this Love that we have
It's a wide-open feeling, don't drive yourself mad

Looking left, looking right
Straight ahead is your green light
Put the pedal, to the floor
Ain't no stoppin anymore

It's a wide-open feeling, as you blast off the pad
It's a wide-open feeling, maybe the best that you've had
It's a wide-open feeling, this freedom we know
It's a wide-open feeling, to let yourself go

Out in front, the view is clearer
The past is in the rear-view mirror
Speed of light, stopping time
Till I cross the finish line

It's a wide-open feeling, as you're building up speed
It's a wide-open feeling, when there's nothin you need
It's a wide-open feeling, if you know who you are
It's a wide-open feeling, you can shine like a star

the good fight

8/11/08

I'm not one to attract attention
But there's something I have to mention
Some might think it's an invention
We believe it's true

That His Love is bigger than a cadillac
When He tries to show us but we drive him back
Forgive us for the faith we lack
And lead us home to you

Some might say there's another solution
But Heaven is my evolution
I've seen enough of sins pollution
To last me many lives

And so I'll try to hang around
Endure all I have lost and found
Fight for Love another round
Each and every day

Polishing Grapes

No more twinnings Tea sips
Ghastly breath of dying witherings

A sumptuous spot on the couch
Noticed while falling asleep

Gored to the ends of torso
Making a long lost end-trail

Popular mechanics loosing jobs
A good day to say the least

yes it is ...

& very haunting. "waves of dread come crashing in"
That's the part that gets me.

PEACE
