Every now and then (more then than now!) I get the urge to put pen to paper, below are some of the results!

 
 
 
 

This is my one and only effort to try and write poetry! To my surprise it was accepted on http://www.poetry.com and I keep getting invites to go read it in the States in person!

 
     
 

My love....

...someone who will understand,
as I will understand, with compassion
...someone who will be discreet,
as I will be discreet, with understanding
...someone who will laugh with me,
as I will laugh with her, not at her
...someone who will accept my moods,
as I will accept hers, with patience
...someone who I can trust,
as she can trust me, with confidence
...someone who will touch me,
as I will touch her, with tenderness
...someone who will love me,
as I will love her, with unbridled passion

A while ago I was webmaster for the website of South African actress, singer and photographic model CandicÚ Hillebrand. She was just starting her singing career and I wrote these two songs for her and never even gave them to her for fear of being rejected!

Who knows, perhaps someday, someone would like to put the lyrics to music?
Just don't wait till I am dead!

 
 
 
 

The other side of me...
Song for CandicÚ

I live a life of glory
in the limelight all the time
my centrefolds are in magazines
my body flickers on the screen.

The face in the mirror
the picture on the wall
the name that they whisper
is not me at all...

But there's another side of me
that no one knows about
when I am alone at night
away from glory, noise and hype.

The face in the mirror
the picture on the wall
the name that they whisper
is not me at all...

Now I can live out fantasies
let thoughts flow wild and free
creating songs and words so deep
this is the other side of me....

The face in the mirror
the picture on the wall
the name that they whisper
is not me at all...

 
 
 
 

Just Love Me

You live life in the fast lane
Always moving here and there
We dont see each other often
It's not as if you don't care

But when we're alone,
all on our own,
where no one can see,
and it's just you and me
please hold me, oh hold me, just hold me

I live life in the fast lane
My name in lights everywhere
We dont see each other often
It's not as if I don't care

But when we're alone,
all on our own,
where no one can see,
and it's just you and me
please kiss me, oh kiss me, just kiss me

We live life in the fast lane
Living for moments we can share
We don't see each other often
It's not as if we don't care

But when we're alone,
all on our own,
where no one can see,
and it's just you and me
please love me, oh love me, just love me
