Old actors never die

(they carry on living with their grandfather/longcase/tallcase clocks) His soul wanders silently though his mind, as it searches the archives of yesteryear. A better man it tries to find, ’twill go unrewarded, I fear. For this misbegotten son of dust, old and weary now. Feels the pain from deep within, as he awaits his final […]

Whiz Kid

(he knows how to fix grandfather/longcase/tallcase clocks) Sometimes I wish I was different, like some of the Whiz Kid’s I’ve met. Then I would write beautiful stories, like Romeo and Juliet. I’d sing Italian opera, and be a fine culture freak, if only I was different, and knew how to proper speak. I know that […]

Love pieces

(I just love those grandfather / longcase / tallcase clocks) 1 And if she steals my heart, so what? And if she takes it and breaks it, so what? And if she uses, then abuses it, so what? As long as I am able to say, that once, I looked into her eyes. 2 Were […]

Kissed away my tears

(and bought me some grandfather / longcase / tallcase clocks) You said you had to go, you were tired of our world and me, knowing me had been fun, but now you had to be free. I looked into your eyes, and as reflections of pain appeared, the sighing Sun reached down from the sky, […]

A perfect day

(someone bought me a lot of grandfather/longcase/tallcase clocks) The day was calm and still, as most days were then, your hand in mine we strolled the way lovers do. You picked Summer Roses as we passed along the way, and I was so in love with you. Isn’t it funny how nothing was said? Yet […]

(I could not find any grandfather/longcase/tallcase clocks) Glimmering, glistening, globe of time, revolving slowly around. You are aware of everything, every sight every sound. There are no secrets from you, you know in my heart and my mind. Take a look inside me now, tell me what you find. ‘Cos I’m hurting inside, yes, I’m […]

November hill

(climbed up to find some grandfather/longcase/tallcase clocks) The day we took our walk up November hill is the day I remember now, you asked me if I loved you, and I said I didn’t know I wasn’t certain somehow. But oh how I wish I could fall onto the green fields of yesterday and be […]


Mar 19 2002


(I could not bear to leave my grandfather/longcase/tallcase clocks) We lit the match, the flame glowed, flickered, and slowly died, like the light in my life, the light which once burned so brightly, would no longer cast shadows on the walls of eternity. And again I am left to wander alone, to scale pyramids of […]

Is that you, love?

(the very best of my grandfather/longcase/tallcase clocks) The empty feeling in her heart, told her that they’d have to part. The careless thoughts within her head, just emphasized her love was dead. She tried to recapture again and again, days of rapture filled with such sweet pain. She shouldn’t leave him, not this way, yet […]
