Road Trip (2005)

Poem By Patrick Wescott

I sat and played connect the dots
etching out the map of life.
Where do I get on this trip?
Do I have enough fuel to go?

Highways of boredom circling.
citystreets full of testing.
Back alleys of lust and passion,
perhaps country roads of adventure.

I cant see any stop signs.
Do we just keep driving?
Oh theres one up ahead,
just barely out of vision.

Lets go the other way
and see what it brings

Liquid Sky (2005r)

Give to me one more kiss.
Impart your spirit on my memory.
Chill my heart with a touch.
Ignite me with a glance.

House Of The Haunted (2005r)

Once again I've returned,
here I sit watching ghosts.
In the house of the haunted
where I buried the past.

Set Me Free (2005r)

Tie me down and set me free.
Peer into me and make me sting.
Flay my flesh, release my soul.
Make me cry, make me bleed.

The Room (2005r)

I've walked the streets of London.
Set sail for the shores of France.
Found tequila
on the beaches of mexico.

Son (For J.M.W. My Little One) (2005r)

The waves crash the shore,
like the thoughts in my mind.
And the storm swells
to the point of breaking.

Untitled (Ix) (1993)

Do you understand what you hear?
Can you afford to see the truth?
Look past your preconceptions,
forget the stories told from a thousand lips.
