Savage God (1994r)

Poem By Patrick Wescott

Where are you,
O savage god?
You said that you'd guide me.
Promised you'd lead me to safety.
You swore I'd never walk alone.
Yet here I sit,
Solitude.
Have I caused offense?
Am I discarded as a toy?
Have I strayed too far,
and crossed the line?
For this I would give my life,
to find the road anew.
But where were you,
O savage god?

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.

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.
