Oral bliss, Anal anxiety
Nick Moore Feb 2013
Austere, everywhere!
only me for
that I care.

In my dream, two apples
fall from a tree,
roll down the hill
next to me.

There I lay
in foetal bliss
behold she comes to me
the Goddess.
Wrote this one after reading an article about oral personalities and **** personalities.

Disappointed.
Nick Moore Feb 2013
Disappointed, with the food you choose to eat.
Disappointed with the dark shadows on the street.
Disappointed with what’s on Tv.
Disappointed with what you call reality.
Disappointed we let things slip so far.
Disappointed with a bandage called a car.
Disappointed with the mobile in your hand.
Disappointed I cannot see the band.

Nick Moore May 2013
The ball of wool
got smaller and smaller
as it ran across the rug,
reflected upon the untrained eye
it looked just like a bug

The cat was intrigued,
decided to pounce!
but the ball just carried on dancing
and lost another ounce

Getting quite frantic now
it's dancing got faster and faster,
the needles did their work
the scarf got taller
but the ball just got smaller

Spotlighted by sunlight
due to clement weather,
disappearing!
it had reached the end
of it's tether.

Old Rocking Chair
Nick Moore Apr 2013
I was sitting in my old rocking chair
Taking in the mountain air

All of a sudden I was filled with panic!
Oh no, for goodness sake!
not another earthquake!

But then these words I do declare
woodworms taken a liking to my chair
woodworms taken a liking to my chair

I rub the place where I had hair!
woodworms taken another rocking chair
woodworms taken a liking to my chair.
Just trying to make you laugh with this one : ))

Pragmatic In The Attic

Chaos my friend
there’s only one way to be
To make these eyes see.

Pragmatic in the attic,

it’s the only way to be
pragmatic in the attic
To make these eyes see.

We

We

We

but we knew what was wrong,

Good to know a place

Vinyl Old And New
Nick Moore Mar 2014
When I was a teen
Vinyl was the scene
Forget
The tangled up cassette

Then came, scratch free CD
Now the one you cannot see...... MP3

Pulled apart
LP's wonderful art

Dusting down my old turntable
Spin some disks
Hope it's able

Making a warm crackle
The needle clicked into the groove
My ears did approve

So it's final
I'm going back to
Vinyl.

Home made zombie voodoo whistles past
Wicked pastiche
Betrayed and murdered
Sitting on beer crates
She admits how Unsalvageably evil she is
Sparkled in the moonlight
Fires were not uncommon
raise a quizzical eyebrow
Remove my coat
Sniffing language
Orange silver glow
Murky waters
Slime and filth.

A vision of the land I see
Where trees stand tall and true,
Bluebells spread and grew,
Birds on branches nesting
warm winds take them on the wing
Any ear would hear them sing

Waking  

Will my dream come to pass?

Labyrinth World.
Nick Moore Apr 2013
Wondering around
formless and free,
compelling curiosity
to find out
what
could
be?

Constructing
alpha, omega
labyrinth
was seen to be
good

Entering the
construct, what
great fun to be had

Moving around each
twist, corner and turn,
celestial navigation
was learned

Dispersing,
fragmenting,
self awareness
was lost,
leaving clues
at each
twist, corner and turn.

On my emotional roulette wheel
It's easy to forget it's there
But when the ball rolls
Sometimes it falls just right
The feeling
So fleeting
But the memory
Will stay a while.

Maybe it should be left alone?

Wild as the sea hag
leaping across ****** bay

on this day

Wild Rosaleen
fear and love
in your face

The world is wasting
for the lack of you,
Dark Rosaleen

Wild Rosaleen
tears of sadness
in your eyes
can be seen

Bring back the Dark Rosaleen
back from the minds
numbed by the machine

Wild Rosaleen
seaweed and grass
in your hair
can be seen.

Confront.
Nick Moore Apr 2013
When I was little
a voice in my head
said

“there’s a monster underneath the bed”

Not liking the fear that he gave
a part of me was his slave

I needed to be brave
Look him in the eye

It was time for a monster hunt
Not knowing the word confront

Eye’s closed.
Stick my head under the bed
Open up after one two three
There was nothing there to see!
This is an old one I just tweaked a little, I like it because it's my first memory of facing up to fear.

You seek to depress us,
I know no reason why?
Most of what you say is a lie

Looking through your windows
So many there to choose
I get the feeling, everyone we loose

You can be so seductive
I've had a fling or two
Now I think, I'm finally over you.

There's guardians at the edge of

Withholding information

I don't know what

but it must be mighty

This man
philosopher, mathematician and astronomer
said "the sun was a star"
but the Roman Inquisition
thought he'd gone to far

Found him guilty of heresy,
but you will never guess
what happened next?

Tongue imprisoned for
what it could say,
his life they would take,
and so poor Bruno was
burned at the stake.

The ***** seem quite knowing
to the egg it is going

A good swimmer to go
where it's going!

*****'s overflowing
eggs are escaping

Slipping down the big dipper
the fallopian ride

When the two meet up
fireworks explode

Divide but not conquer
divide but not conquer
divide but not conquer

Time spent in
the growing room,
head for the exit sign

But after all this
I still don't know
where baby's

Time went so fast.
I turned around and you were passed.
Without you I wouldn’t have the fight.
Now I have the inner light.

I never met you.
What can I say.
Still think of you every day.

In the darkness of your room.
Banishing all the gloom.
Now there is a light.
You soul has taken flight.

Dream Driller.
Nick Moore Mar 2013
Fragments of a trapdoor world.
A mystery bird.
The song he sings of the absurd.

My dream driller
Reality killer.
Made of smoke and mirror.

Corridors with endless doors.
Each door hides something new.
A secret or two.

My dream driller.
Reality killer.
Made of smoke and mirror.

A kiss from the abyss.
I'm awake, mind twisting like a snake.
Please remember all of this.
But only fragments remain.
Always the same.

My dream driller
Reality killer
made of smoke and mirror.

There's nothing
To
Know  

Fertile ground
For seeds to

Shade to the

Changes the colour

What they perceive
Is the world
We believe

Once there was nothing
Then there was something
Thoughts create
Everything.

They work on it all the time.
But would you want to be with them?
For the rest of time.

Later or sooner
But these guy’s ain’t got no sense of humour.

The light in the night
Nick Moore Mar 2013
There could be someone
who could change everything
helping us all to see

The light in the night
and the darkness in the day
not just one shade of Grey


There could be a call
that wakes us from our sleep
helping us all to see

The light in the night
and the darkness in the day
not just one shade of Grey

Everyday I put a moment away
believing this to be true
and as I try to think
through the swirling of the ink
something's surrounding me

The light in the night
and the darkness in the day
not just one shade of Grey

There could be a thought
that could change everything
gaining us
strength to see

The light in the night
and the darkness in the day
not just one shade of Grey

If I loose my way
through twisting of the day
colours fading away
I know all's not lost
as I start to see

The light in the night
and the darkness in the day
not just one shade of grey
not just one shade of grey

Shake The Speare
Nick Moore Aug 2013
If all the world's a stage
then Bill and me
are on the same page

So when treading the boards
step softly
don't go crossing swords,
give the best performance
from you'r soul
lift others from their holes,
put a smile on their face
if things don't work out
try changing roles

Make it the best play ever written
try for a good ending
maybe leave someone smitten

When the curtain comes down
and it's just you on you'r own
there should be no frown
go to you'r backstage bedroom
sleep tight under the full moon
awake as the birds sing
who knows what the day brings.

Child kisses the mouth of the shadow dog.

This is why I’m so touched, by what a child
Can see.

Isn't much difference
Between you and me

Together that’s something new
Together that’s me
And that’s you.
