Build me a house and I'll build a boat to sail across the sea to me
Sing me a song and I'll write you a poem to recite to you when we meet.
Whisper your name in my slumber and sweep me off of my tired feet. 
Hold me close to your heart and wait for our muscles to beat in tune. 

I'll wait, patiently, by the sea for your arrival, my dear.

No one has seen your face but me and we both know they're not ready for you. 
Your eyes are kaleidoscopes, the sounds you hear evoke colours. Bright blue.
But I'm just a ghost and you're just a tortured young soul. 
What's the use in making you hear when all you taste are tears?

I'll wait, patiently, by this fire that licks my sick, pale flesh.

When you say you stole me from another, will I ever see their face again?
And when you robbed me of my pleasure was I too blind or ignorant to see that you did it again?

I like to listen to music and make music, hey, what a coinkydink!

I'm inspired by many artists both living and dead, and by non-artists also living and dead. I like to write songs about people I encounter, or things that I like, sometimes things that I hate, or how I feel. I really hope you enjoy what you hear and you help feed me! ... more
