a night without a moon

life shares its memories with us, like a story told

when we are asleep. A dream to some,

a night mare others.

I once watched the sun set, enjoying

all the bye, byes it made to me until finally,

i saw no more horizons arround me.

and thats when i noticed how special you where to me.


Up in the sky, the whole beauty got absorbed

in the darkness and what was left for me

was the dew to hold till the sun rose again.

i glance at the sky to see whether you will be able to see me

but i just cant see your face, till i dose off

and woke up in the morning only to realise i missed you.


Dear, i called you so when you never missed a night without spreading

your strong but faint rays onto me,

remember when we played hide and seek, i always hide but for

you the sky was too small for you to hide, remember,

I do recall such times

and realised how good such moments where, i hold onto such memories

every time the moon does not shine at night with its faint rays

which give the night colour.

You will always be my friend, even if you are far away

from me.

Non Military

You had me fooled for years
I really thought your were my mate
With you I would have marched to Hell
Or even the Pearly gate
You said I was like a bother
Then stabbed me in the back
I stood up for my comrade
When your were under attack
One day the penny dropped
Like a lightening bolt from the skies
I saw beneath your skin
All those years of wasted false friendship
As you took me for a fool
I could have had a `real` friend
Been more than a useful tool
As I grew older I could see
What I was to your scheming plan
Just another pawn on your chess board
Not friend or comrade or even a man
I’ve moved on now not bitter
Just slightly more I’m wise
So thank you God for showing me

The realisation that your `friend` never really was.

Like an American TV


Hello My friend,

Firstly we should find out bad points each other
Because that would be easier in future
We don't need to be serious
Because it gets silly sometimes

All your smile inspires me
Because I see what makes you free
You should tell me everything
Because it gets more interesting

blah blah blah blah blah bla---blah
blah blah blah blah blah bla---blah

like an American TV
like an

the battery's gone..............
