daylife savings are over
life saviours pack their things and exit
in a forest somewhere old man winter leans
towards the southern hemisphere
i wake up this morning to a white world
the sky outside
my sleeping wife wth her mauve eyelids
my american wife with her own joys n sorrows
my wife n i drinking riccadonna wine + ! + ?
oh watching the black rain fall from our sunroom
my wife likes her riccadonna with red cordial n ice in it
oh thats it
be a nice wife, nk…
from chapterhouse
“blind angel, move thru me
dangerous vacuous bliss”
yes dangerous vacuous bliss
but bliss is bliss
the hours of the night melt away
the black rain continues
we drift around the house
like in a waking dream
oh come over here baby
the outside has completely vanished
inside a reduced world
where i forget myself
i get out of step with it all
i go off in tangents
i drift n i drift
then i hurl down the barrel into sharp focus
where a halo of light pounds
time becomes quite meaningless
its out there passing in the real world
but in my skull the minutes linger
music bounces off my ears
everything is sensitive
a taxi pulls up in the street outside
but it might as well be another world
the brake lights glow in the black rainy night
someone jumps in our out
i cant tell
i see things
but i cant decipher any order
i cant see any point
our candles illuminate the darkness
i quaff down wine like water
nothing has any effect on me sometimes
her prettiness makes me angry somewhere inside
i feel like a very nasty cat looking at a little birdie
oh baby youre so pretty…..ggrrrrrrr
oh you mangey panther
oh you cruel little boy
who are you now time being
just a man
just a man
in darkness
in sweet oblivion
lost my head
lost my mind
falling over n over

    Are you sure that she ain’t your Muse? Wow, wouldn’t that be cool. I am glad you are now channeling the muse into the blogge. Seems like it lately. Keep the best for your lyrics on discs and books in print.

    A book of selected great kilbey blogs would be sweet. Can’t wait for your new Fruit of the loom book.


    p.s. Hope you got my late xmas gift, a book, was called “The Field”, said it had shipped anyways…enjoy.

    dreaming of birds that are blue
    sometimes girl when I’m lonely
    that’s how I think about you’

    Lovely to read tonight.

    “The wine seems to have sobered me up”…….

    you capture moments and experiences with dense prose

    it appears that the wine’s effect is somewhat shallow and lacking in spirit to you, despite the bliss, if I am correct.

    just a man
    who is Pan
    sexy ol’ devil
    Aphrodite got yer goat?

    Beauty has a few beasts
    of her own
    A Red Dragon
    that hatches
    in 9 months
    try to devour
    it seems too long
    after waiting in eternity
    the point another unbroken circle
    for all time
    in every place
    and all ways
    fly fly fly
    please please please
    not empty
    fated casualties
    of the merging

    Somewhere there waiteth in this world of ours
    For one lone sole another lonely soul
    Each choosing each other though all the weary hours
    And meeting strangely at one sudden goal
    Then blend they, like green leaves with golden flowers
    Into one beautiful and perfect whole
    And life’s long night is ended and the way
    Lies open onward to eternal day

    “Destiny” …Edwin Arnold

    Steve..for you and your partner

    regards Simon

    hi sk!
    guess what..
    im sitting in the middle of the jungle…on an island called koh chang..the elephant island in thai language….been here for acouple of days now and its so soft;)
    and in this open bar overlooking the oriental warm sea…a computer!
    been reading your last blogs and feel great…this is paradise man..
    watching the sun set and the sky explode in colours of divinity…
    the humidity make my shirt stick to my body as i been swimming in it!
    the joy of travelling and experiencing ancient culture !
    take care man!

    got a little tipsy did ya? just playing my weekly game of blog catch up. been so busy, it seems every week i end up missing some and have three to read back to back…good stuff though. hope you didn’t go to hard in your rock book on keith richards hair dos…that’s what mine seems to be evolving into. maybe i’m trying to summon my inner keith??? i’m sure that can’t be good though…just sounds bad to begin with…
    take care

    Lillies in a Wreckyard

    Oh dear,
    I saw you and you knew it had to be me..
    I’ve loved you as always…
    Say Love..
    thee decider
    in necessary notions..
    It’s strictly ..
    I dont know…I just do
    but I knew it couldnt be this..
    with you in this place
    the smell is rust around you
    so It has to be that..
    which is Love..
    almost greater If I knew
    It could be true
    but your bleeding now
    your yellows sorrowing into violet
    and I say love, but I meant forever
    I take you away from here..

    jaime r….

    Sometimes all that is needed is one more glass of red wine, to be honest.

    Stay lovely.
