Better Man

{ So, Readers, fans and poets, this is where it all started. “Better man” was written way back in 2009, probably my first attempt at verse or lyrics, or just expressing myself through the written word. It was scribbled very spontaneously with a permanent marker on my hands, fingers and elbows on a hot summer night; under the effect of a high fever and subsequent antibiotics. And although I remember having a hard time collecting the bits and pieces of words the morning after, I believe strongly that any work written ” in the moment ” is always more honest and has a natural flow. Watch the visual as you read! }

And now,
you’re in a dark room and life seems shit
its 3:40 in the night and you havent slept a wink
You hold your spinning head in your arms and the thoughts
so heavy, so cold
Like a frozen wave of some drink that you’re caught upon

And outside, the noise
songs playin about drugs and alcohol and love and war
but they all remind you of the same girl
oh, you so wanna kill her, hold her, and then kiss her
till nothing seems real anymore
till you lose your time, your space
her voice rings , the aspirin kicks in
youve lost your chance

and outside ,the lights
seem to make strange shapes that somehow
push way deep through your eyes, shivering
into your mind , you fall, from the red sky it seems

and the colours, they burst into your head
Disappointed,shimmering with rage
pointing , screaming hate , they surround
and oh you realise , oh you recall

had a chance to be a better man , a better man.

  1. “I believe strongly that any work written ” in the moment ” is always more honest and has a natural flow.”….so true! I second that!

    love the way it closes, “had a chance to be a better man, better man”….so rhythmic!
