Kaleidoscope of Colour

Kaleidoscope of Colour

A

Phantasmagoria

Fantasy

Hallucination

Of colours

Flowing

Gracefully

Elegantly

From our minds

Rising above

Triumphing over

Troubles

Dilemmas

Life looking brighter

Lighter

Sunnier

Amazingly

Beautifully

Escapism

Meditating

Diversionary channel

Dreams and fantasies

Leading to a

Far, far away

To lands so surreal

Unreal

Fantastically

Beautiful

Lifting

Elevating

Soul’s desire

Heart’s desire

Body’s desire

Ecstasy

Elation

Bliss

Paradise

Flow, flow, flow

Flowing

Adeste Fideles (Enya)

Adeste Fideles (Enya).

DO YOU SEE WHAT I FEEL

The deafening sounds of thunder

The black and blue skies

Rolling along like the waves

Way up there in the heavens

The cracking lightening

Like my broken heart

Splitting into pieces

Like shards of glass

I hear the clapping thunder

I hear your hands clapping with glee

Did you not know how you made me feel?

Did you not know that you made me happy!

Or were your words not for real?

Then why make this world of mine so surreal?

With your words of love and devotion

You made this world of my feel like heaven on earth

Now all you feel is mirth

And now all I want is for this to disappear

Like the clapping thunder

The striking lightening

The lashing rain

Letting it pound, pound

Washing, cleansing this heart and soul

Oh what a fool!

A huge fool to this world of love

But I’ll stay a devoted fan of love

And one day, yes one day

I’ll follow my heart

And my true destiny

O Magnum Mysterium – Morten Lauridsen.

Make me a channel of your peace.

Gospel Choirs and The Music of The Lord.

LIVING IN THE MOMENT

All I want to do is live for these moments

Never wanting to be away from you

When all I want is a friend and not a lover

Under the covers

I just need time to recover

Recover, recover

From all the pain and hurt

Not wearing your shirt

All I need is just a friend

To the bitter end

A friend who’d understand

A side of me that’ll be known

A friend that’ll never be outgrown

A lover is not what I need right now!

Oh for crying out loud!

Why won’t they listen?

They can keep the moonlight

The stars shining so bright

The kisses

The missives

The messages

Just won’t change my mind

The creeping, crawling

Trawling for their lover

The thrill has gone

Gone, gone!

You just wanted to see what you wanted

Not what is for real!

So tell me why you are so afraid

Afraid of that heavenly touch

Touches so surreal

But you didn’t want real!

You just needed a lover

Under your covers

But I’ll find a way to heal

But not at your heels

Just tell me why you are so, so afraid?

Yet you’ll always swim for the safe

Shoreline

A shoreline so safe and secure

I thought I would hold that dream

But you changed it to your tune

Not to our tune!

Now is the time to heal

Heal, heal

It would help me to know?

Was I the best you have ever known?

Oh this crazy battlefield

A war zone

With neither in the same tone
