    My first book, Love Lyrics: The Musical Marital Manual, is being published now and will be available on Amazon. It is the ONLY self-help marriage book written primarily in a song lyric, rhyming verse (light verse) format. I did this because I think poetry is a marvelous tool for education. Experiences that are musical, emotional, entertaining, and aesthetic are more easily accepted, absorbed, and remembered. Each has a brief prose commentary accompanying it; but, I wanted the lyrics/poems to stand on their own as a different type of informative communication. I understand that poetry has historically served a role in educating people as well as being a form of artistic expression. I am a recently retired psychologist and marriage & family therapist and I have always been a professional musician, too. So, I combined these bodies of knowledge and interest in this book. I am also the full-tlme caregiver for my disabled wife and am almost finished with a second book in the same format that tells other caregivers their feelings are normal, manageable, and they are not alone.

    Do you find that more men are writing poetry about love and romance now, than ever before?Or does the internet just make them more visible?

    You've got the cruelest heart, I have ever known
    When you say you love me, you know,
    it'll touch me deep and makes me weak
    Words that'll keep me under the influence of your control
    Where are we going to, do you know?
    because, I can't continue to give away, my heart and soul

    You've made beautiful promises
    Guess you figured, I'd forget
    A life of bliss, beyond my years
    instead, you bring me only tears
    you ain't ever going to care

    With no regrets, I'm leaving you
    The love that lived inside my heart, it's gone
    Did you think i'd keep holding on?
    Baby, i'm sorry, I love you, I apologize
    Baby, this love have met it's demise
    when are you going awake to see
    I'd leave behind painful memories
    I was your fool, but, I wasn't going be a fool forever
    Going find me a new love, one who treats me right
    and love me like you never could
    for the rest of my life

    You've Changed

    The sparkle in your eyes is no longer there
    the smile upon your face leave me in despair
    when you kiss me, I no longer feel a fire
    When you touch me, I don't feel desired
    You fix your lips to say 'I love you'
    Those heartfelt words you don't live up to
    you've changed, each memory that we'd share
    how strange, that there's not an ounce of you that cares
    I fell in love with someone
    but you're not that someone I thought I knew
    Somethings got a hold of you
    you've changed, Who would of thought we'd fall apart
    guess nothing good lasts forever
    You've broken my heart
    We've been through the stormy weather
    didn't outlive love to stay together
    because you've changed

    I look into the sky to find you
    Where are you my love
    I can see yours eyes smile in mine
    I feel you inside of me
    Your heart beats to the words of my soul
    I need you my love
    I’ve searched for you afar
    My heart bleeds for you
    Find me my love
    For I am yours
    Be one with me
    Ill love you forever

    When the wind blow, when the sun shines, when the rain falls, when the dark calls the day to slumber, when men have all gone to sleep, when no one thinks of thee, when no one cares, l will always be here for you! Thinking of you, yearning for you and when the morning retires the night to it's place and when all men awakens to behold the brighter new day of the month and week.l will always wish you a wounderful week and lots of love.l care for thee.l will always love you, in my heart have l created a space for you to occupy. Behold and see that we are not only meant for each other but that we are created for and from one another.l love you till the end of time and end of seasons. My love for you glitters more the the stars of heaven, my passion for you eludes the illusion of lust. I love you from the depth of my soul.

    The way you changed me makes me try
    The way you loved me makes me lie
    The way I miss you makes me cry
    The way you kissed me made me thrive
    Something in your way made me need you
    Made me crave you more than I already do
    For you I'd do anything
    for me you'd avoid me for everything

    four words of wisdom
    i must share
    the love people are fond of
    is hard to bare

    what is love they ask
    why doesn't it last

    well here is why i say
    open your eyes if you may
    LOVE is hurt
    start as lust
    which is must
    then there is obsession
    no need for a lesson
    then it goes into vain
    run before leaves the train
    and last well it doesn't last
    it ends.........

    Waves from Melbourne Part 1 (Not as innocent, not as pure)

    The waves used to hit the shore lightly
    They would glimmer and shimmer nightly
    They used to crash so brilliantly
    Shining a nice pure blue so beautifully.
    Now the waves have gotten rough,
    They crash the shore really rough,
    Weighing down on me it hits,
    It hits like tons of bricks.
    But you’re surrounded by waves,
    You’re also haunted by ocean graves,
    So they will crash over you, harder than me
    And they will float back out to sea.
    When they come in and go out,
    You hear them as they cry out,
    But at least I hear them, and nothing more
    At least I can see them touch the shore.
    So there’s one thing I know for sure,
    You are not innocent, not as pure.
    As the waves that hit the shore.

    For my friend who I miss dearly. Read my other two Part 2 and 3 :)
