Tex T Sarnie Poems

I was looking for the type of lady
that didn't wind me up and drive me crazy.
I eventually found seven with true potential
and they all were in their way quite sensational.

I didn't want to tell you a lie
because I know that if you found out
you would say goodbye
and I would be left broken-hearted.

At the beginning and throughout our life's journey
we don't know where we're going until we arrive.
We walk many winding paths and cul-de-sacs,
often believing that we have reached our destination.

I have tried my best to phone you
last night and throughout the day.
How can I explain what happened
if you won't listen to what I say.

I know about all your faults and silly idiosyncrasies,
but I accept them because I love you.
I know you love yourself more than you love anyone else
and think that you are God's gift, but I still love you.

I began my journey on this long and winding road,
the road that every person has to make.
I didn't know at the beginning or even now
where it would take me, or how long it would take.

The full moon has taken up its position
and the sun has long since gone down.
It's unusually cold and fusty smell lingers in the air,
but it's quiet and still, and there's no one around.

Why is it that when I'm sitting alone in the dark
my imagination always tries to frighten me?
I don't want to know about ghosts and poltergeists,
who regard this house as their sanctuary.

Inner Demons 1

As far as I can remember
I never experienced demons as a child.

A new picture on display
brought utter dismay.
Why choose this place
to hang such a disgrace?

I recently moved home to reflect my economic situation,
and my neighbours asked me to their New Year celebration.
I didn't know anyone, so I just mingled for a while,
introducing myself and trying hard to smile.

In the darkness of the night when you are lying in your bed
do you think about the creatures that may invade you while you sleep?
The housebound spiders, woodlice, silverfish, earwigs, and ants,
that may enter your body just looking for a place of retreat.

I was relaxing on a bench overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
The day was warm and sunny, and the breeze was cooling me.
My eyelids were feeling heavy and I was nodding off to sleep.
when someone sat beside me, but they didn't care to speak.

Why did I stop and look at the calendar?
What was I expecting to find?
Was I checking to see if I was free on a particular day?
I've entirely forgotten what was on my mind.

The rain was pouring
but the owl was still hooting,
and a wolf was howling at the moon.

How can I possibly get her attention
if I cannot catch her eye?
She has certainly caught my mine,
but all her glances pass me by.

To my mind's state of tranquillity
came an echo from the past.
A memory as real as when first made
and apparently one destined to last.

Moving in the shadows on a moon lit night
a man stalked another and kept out of sight.
A grudge had to be settled by this cowardly pursuer
he wanted sweet revenge from this evil wrong doer.

In the early hours of this morning
I was wakened by a raging storm.
Several seconds later I realised
I was hovering above my form.

As I sit alone upon this ancient, cold, tombstone,
watching the clouds go slowly pass the moon.
A shiver travelled up and down my worthless spine.
Oh, how I wish my life would be over soon.

The Best Poem Of Tex T Sarnie

My Search For A Partner

I was looking for the type of lady
that didn't wind me up and drive me crazy.
I eventually found seven with true potential
and they all were in their way quite sensational.

Alice with her politeness and beauty
definitely did things to excite me.
And Jane with her long legs and lovely hair
I'd be proud to take her anywhere.

Sue was a magnificent Michelin Star chef
and her cooking simply took away my breath.
Vicki had a talent and knew how to make me laugh,
unfortunately she also led me down the garden path.

Now Joan had a marvellous mind and body,
and I always liked her next to me.
Carol had beauty and a phenomenal brain,
but she got under my skin and gave me pain.

Wendy was my dream, the one I settled for in the end
she was my ideal woman, and everyone's friend.
She was unselfish, devoted, loving, caring, and clever,
and a woman that I wanted to spend my life with forever.
