Your heart, scared, deformed

Your heart is scarred and deformed
Disfigured by the graffiti of life
Crushed like a potters clay
By crisis and disappointment.

Do you think you know
Where the heart is?
Do you think you know
Where the heart has gone?

It has gone, fallen
Through the collapsed floor of your being

Was it ever the muscular pumper of blood?
Or is it deeper and harder to define?

As for the lovers maxim “The heart beats faster”
– This is only the tip of the iceberg

4/ Good Love Gone Bad

There’s a burden of love that won’t go away, so real I can taste it on my tongue touch it with my mind feel it in me like undigested frogs spawn.
The light green trees of light, of Ash, and the flowers of Horse Chestnut spikes makes me wish I could produce more art.
A general fear of death, dying, destruction is taking over.
Everywhere I look I see a countdown to some ending, some disturbing mystery probing me.

I am a burden of love, now I become what I cannot control.

I am a human sacrifice adrift on a sea of flames.
I am a ships radio officer adrift in a sea of light.
I am bad love gone unhealed for years in a sea covered in floating medicine bottles and naked female manikins.

A pair of nervous sparrows their feathers smudged in a darker colouring visited my little garden of wildflowers. They darted away like two spitfires between the hedge growth.

Song: Australia House

Lyrics to Australia House:

Chorus:

I went down to Australia House
Fot to find a friend of mine
It’s so strange there is no doubt
She’s been gone a long, long time.

Verses 1 – 3

I never thought you’d leave me
I never thought you’d go
You vanished like a dream
You vanished like the snow

I took a trip down under
Flying through the sky
Noone seemed to know you
No matter how I tried

I’ve seen such bitter hatred
For reasons unexplained
I wish that you were with me
To help me through this pain

Australia House

A song about how a loved one can seem to dissappear from your life without any warning. About a dream where I went searching down-under.
