Untitled (Iii) (1992)

Poem By Patrick Wescott

I tell lies to please you,
hiding all but my face.
I give you what you want,
even as it causes pain.
All you hear is crazy,
all you see is peace.
And your ignorant of me,
never seeing past your picture.

And I dance with bottled demons,
while you try to digest me.
Finding me untasteful,
You spit me up and walk away.

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.
