Why would you do that?

Why would you do that
at all?

One day you'll feel
the lions maul

Well being
good health

Do unto others
what you would
to
yourself.
Nick Moore Sep 2017
Every thought,
every action,
every word said,

Not just in your head.

How will you rate,
the movie of your life?
Nick Moore Feb 2013
Time the clock
never forgot.

Without a word
while dreaming occurred
it's cogs kept whirling and turning.

Woken from my sleep
by the
BLEEP BLEEP BLEEP

It's time to press you'r button.
Nick Moore Mar 2014
See the world unfolding
In every nook and cranny

See it positively

"But that's only half of it"

See it negatively

"But that's only half of it"

To let all in
Is confusing at first
But there's no going back
To a lesser
World.
Nick Moore Dec 2014
You can tell me anything
imagine your mouth
to my ear
you don't believe it?
I can hear!

You can tell me anything

From the darkest of dark
to the lightest of light

I will not tell
be certain of this
I will not tell........ unless

If we should meet
remind me of what was said?

I will pretend not to know
what you are talking about.....

Dancing alone,
music takes me over,
no distractions,

At the right moment,
everything's transgressed,
time is someone else's concept.

"If a big bang occurs and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"
Nick Moore Mar 2016
Always room for improvement
no such thing as utopia
within the darkness there is light
don't fall for their phobia

What doesn't **** you
makes you stronger
the path ahead
gets
longer
and
longer.
Nick Moore May 23
The bygone collider
Tingling you're spine like a spider

Every facet of the past
Now nailed to the mast

All decision now made
Comes at a price already paid

Or

The wings of  hummingbirds
Complex patterns
Of straight lines and curves

New infinite patterns emerge
1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34 55
The honeycomb inside the hive
Nick Moore Feb 14
The kaleidoscope
has been shaken

The pieces are
in flux

Fear and ignorance
divide

Balance is the power
love and truth
unite.

When I was little
A voice in my head....................said

“there’s a monster underneath you'r bed”

Not liking the fear that it gave
A part of me was it's slave

I needed to be brave
Look it right in the eye's

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

Eye’s closed
Stick my head under the bed
Open up after three
There was nothing there to see.

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

Monster underneath my bed
Are you inside my head?

Jump up, you can't get me
Claws grabbing that you cannot see

Eye’s closed
Stick my head under the bed
Open up after 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.

Forgetting and remembering
What's that song we used to sing?

When we talk old friend
The missing bits are made a mend.
Nick Moore Oct 2015
My world has been turned on it's head
because of the words you said
Nick Moore Feb 2013
Down the corridor
Through the door.

Infinite corridors
Wall to wall doors.

Choose a door
Go inside.

Become comfortable.

Forget the door.

Frozen water
Ice melts.

Remember the door
Remember the corridor.

Stingray of light
That fish is
Out of sight.

Bumbling around
To a Dire Straits sound

You're definitely not woke
With that Dad joke

From inside the shed
Beer is brewing
"Just planting some seeds"
Who's he fooling?

But
Now my eyes can see
Not
A
Caricature
It's all about
LOVE
In this role that he plays

From you're bedside
The last words spoke
Delivered to me
One last Dad joke

Now
Heart broke
Time to tell the kid's
My own Dad Joke
Inspired by a comment from Anais Vionet, thanks for the Inspiration.
Nick Moore Sep 2017
I love
that you
love

The things
that you
love

Even if I don't

Could you do the same for me?

If yes

What great lovers
we
could
be....

There are certain things
to which I will always be
sat upon the fence

My favourite sunset
my favourite poem
springs to mind
as my de-fence
First one in a while, hope there are more to come.
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 Sep 2017
Angels and a dolphin's tale,

From the heavens to the
bottom of the seas,

To the inner space
inside you and me,

A wonderful feeling
you'r presence cannot
be denied.
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

Who dreams who alive?
The flower to the bee, inside the hive.
Nick Moore Dec 2018
One night it did occur,
Magic carpet's are real and true.

My mattress where I lay in slumber,
My dreams, my magic carpet ride.

While riding one night a thought did arise,
Dreams feature sunshine and light.

Dream light, I could not help theorize
upon a leaf would it
photosynthesize.
Last one this year, have a good one poetry readers.

Earbud buddy's
Shut the world out

Earbud buddy's
Silent scream and shout

Earbud buddy's
No eye contact for me

Earbud buddy's
Nothings for free

Earbud buddy's
No man is an island
You wait and see
Interaction,  it's not for me.
Slightly judgmental? Just missing the days when people interacted more.
Nick Moore Aug 2014
Fossil's of former lives
Hidden in the rock

Split the stone

It's treasure
to unlock

Creatures thought forgotten

Now
See
Light
Of
Day

No accountant needed
Nature has it's say.
Nick Moore May 30
Either or?
There must be more?
To explore

And of course there is
But it can make conversations a bore
Either or

Sometimes we open the door
To no longer
Either or

The door marked
No time
Everything else
Is left behind

The glue that binds
Place with no mind
Been working on this one for a while, finally came together after a very interesting discussion.
Nick Moore Dec 2017
First there was a lock
now you have the key,

The chains holding you down
finally set you free,

Open the door
step into the light
all that bad stuff
dissolves into the night.
Nick Moore Oct 2013
Can you conceive?
How do you believe?
What do you construct?
Thoughts in mind are tucked
No choice which house you are born
When death visits some will celebrate
Others mourn.
Nick Moore Jan 2014
Euphoria
Has a slot
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.
Nick Moore Feb 2013
Cryogenics is here.
The night of the frozen dead.
But if you look into their mask.
Evolution bypass.

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

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

Foot down on life’s gas
Evolution bypass
Evolution bypass.

The sweetest pill
with a bitter coating

Get through the hard part
then you'r floating.

Martial of the elements          
Fire
Hierarchical prince
Fire
Flutter flags, crimson,
ochre, sapphire, orange
and blue,
Fire
Destroying and cleansing
Prometheus
we are indebted to
you.
Nick Moore Nov 2013
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.
Stuck my head
through a hole to the other side

The mind takes a dazzling ride

Hold on too fleeting golden memory
But
it
falls
to
the
bottom
like a dream now forgotten
Nick Moore Jan 2023
It's always darkest just before dawn,
So my love,
Don't feel forlorn.

From within the cocoon,
Break open the door,
Whatever was imagined,
There's so much more.

Collectively turn a new page,
Welcome in a golden age.
Nick Moore Feb 2013
Goodbye
will I see you
again?

Goodbye
I hope so
but........when?

Goodbye
there's no
hello
without you.

To all the goodbye's
I'm sure
waiting for
you again.
Nick Moore Feb 2013
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.
Nick Moore Mar 2013
At the best of times
it's not just the two
of us.

It's outside time and space
how long spent
in that
place?

Sister
         There's
                     A
                      Twister

                                               Avoid
                                               I

                               This
                        Gust
                    Of
            Dust
    Let's
Be
   On
       Our
             Way

If.
If I could borrow your sorrow for a day.

Can I have something
I haven't had so far?

Explore
explore
explore

Something no living being
has
had


Most fear it's name,
I call it's tune
on
a
full
waxing
moon.
Nick Moore Mar 2016
If you want to know about
the great celestial show?

If you want to know why
Elvis got "All shook up"

All you have to do is
look up

If you don't see it,
be in the know,
the orang glow,
stops the greatest
show

Stars are the cracks
where the light
gets through.
Nick Moore Dec 2011
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.
Nick Moore Mar 2015
Into the mirror we gaze
Staring into the endless maze
That are the windows
To the soul
Outer space
Two black holes

Jump over the fence
Into the place where
Logic makes no sense.
Nick Moore Jan 2012
I need an open day
to see it another way

Don't push me into this
I'll sink into the abyss

My mind is tuned into a certain sound
tomorrow I'll turn it all around.
Nick Moore Apr 2014
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
come
from?
