One Step Ahead

I tried to find my way back to you

but the path had mysteriously dissolved

There were things i wanted to tell you

many things i wanted to share with you

now they are left dangling like split ends

I stopped there for some time flatfooted

At the place where we left off

That space where we laughed without a care

Enjoying each other’s company

Feeling like every day was a holiday

And believing it would never end

Those days of fire

There was an air of sadness left behind

I smell something familiar but it was gone in a second

No amount of deep breathing could return that day

Only fragments remained

Sprinkled like fairy dust and scattered too sparsely to collect

It was gone and sadly reminding me was a song in the distance

A tune you once hummed while you were working

I loved to watch you as you carefully handled things

Joyfully and playfully I see our hearts

Skipping over the beat

Like teenagers fumbling with love

We shared many moments

which i had strung together like pearls

and methodically I rotate each one

to relive the precious feelings

I filled the spaces in between with plastic beads

many colours shapes and sizes

they were reminders that did not compare

nothing compares

your eyes sparkled with every smile you opened

every gentle touch was infused with love

the many chuckles in resistance

struggling to hold back laughter

confirming the snug fit we had found

within each other

the mischievous one and

the rebel without a cause

Where are you now?

I think of you so often

It’s because I’m looking inside

this open heartscape

How will I find you again?

I suspect you discovered your wings

And flew ahead of us

So I will keep moving forward

With loving hope and renewed faith

Believing you may be clearing the road ahead

For us stragglers

Always one step ahead and ready for anything

I love that about you

That’s what keeps me going

Pussyfoot hot on the trail….. Only one step behind

SPLIT ENZ – One Step Ahead

 

Insider Reminder

You’ve been to the future

so apparently you know how this ends

but did we forget or consider

that the sands of time keep shifting

Nothing is set in concrete

destiny is altered every moment

with every choice we make

every action we take

every heart we break

here and now

Yesterday’s continue to shape

and mould the view

we only know what we know

and

we don’t know what we don’t know

Yet

is there a danger in knowing

too much

too soon

Projecting into the future

observing possible outcomes

altering your perception

and sending others into a spin

Lining up to bend your way

the Universe wants to deliver

your wishes

But what about everyone else?

being pushed and pulled by

all the thoughts that were ever thought

forever floating around waiting

to be acknowledged

Making adjustments

to clear the way

to make your day

Follow the guiding lights

they shine for you

over the molehills and faraway

from the temptations

and distractions

designed to test and tease

Letting the other gods pull your strings

will attract more of the same

Expand your awareness

taking a wide angle view

Measurements of the big picture

are only limited by your imagination

Explore that playground

of your own imagination

And play nice together

CATdogsFRIEND

Pussyfoot insider reminder

 

 

 

 

WILBURY twists and turns

He no longer has time for her

He grew tired and bored with that muse

Something changed

Some things shifted

Was it him or was it her who was used?

HANDLE WITH CARE “reputations changeable, situations tolerable…… I’ve been uptight and made a mess but I’ve cleaned up myself I guess Oh the sweet smell of success”

Handle With Care

They no longer see eyes to eyes

perhaps they never did

reflections of light cause optical illusions

roam answers remaining well hid

LAST  NIGHT “I looked in her eyes they were full of surprise”

Last Night

Behind the laughter lines

the smiles scream history with all its pain

rising to the surface

believing it’s worth doing all again

MARGARITA “down from the blue into the gray, where I stood I saw you walk away……we better keep trying till we get it right”

Margarita

They can’t quite put their finger on it

the blame just wanting to be scratched

An irritation festers under the skin

Their wounds are so well matched

LIKE A SHIP “On the sea, Her love rolls over me……Like a weeping willow her love hangs over me, go away, go away, Let me be”

Like A Ship

Dismissing all the wonderful signs

dark gems with crystal visions

The brighter the light they project

The darker the shadow mission

HEADING FOR THE LIGHT “my hands were tied, Jokers and fools on either side……  now I see the hole I was in”

Heading For The Light

Suspicious minds breeding

swivel neck paranoia

Both seeking response and affection

double trouble setting out to annoy them

RATTLED “I get rattled even in my sleep….  I get turned around, I get twisted, and I’m up and I’m down…….. baby is there something wrong with you”?

Rattled

Round and round in circles of cycles

conjuring up some bigger drama

will this nonsense come to an end

paying back it’s ping pong karma?

Not Alone Anymore

 

Playing the part she projected

he finds a new subject for distraction

set the stage with a junk yard mind

avoid and deny this fast lane addiction

DIRTY WORLD “he loves your sexy body, he loves your dirty mind…… ”

Dirty World

Please Forgive his misapprehension

let him finish his proud Hail Mary

He rounds up all the prostitutes

then wants to run the missionary

SEVEN DEADLY SINS “number  seven was when you touched me and told me why…seven deadly sins that’s where the fun begins”

7 Deadly Sins

Meanwhile the whole world is watching

their interaction is a global sensation

God be with you means “goodbye”

try expansion from mind made contraction

SHE’s MY BABY “She better not leave me, And go out to Hollywood…… she’s stumbling through the door, She’s coming home from places she’s never been before

She’s My Baby

Stirring the pot while spilling breadcrumbs

turn up the heat and lets go faster

Someone left the cake out in the rain

It all adds up as a recipe for disaster

COOL DRY PLACE “and when you checked the manual, You kept inside the case, It said ‘put it in a cool dry place”

Cool Dry Place

Was their precious energy wasted?

Disappointment layer after layer?

He’s finished with the white knight armour

Reluctantly signed up as dragon slayer

NEW BLUE MOON “I was waiting…..looking for a new blue moon”

New Blue Moon

He thought she was worth it

She thought he was fun

He chases gold under rainbows

This pussyfoot follows the sun

INSIDE OUT “put down your dream pipe, what colours do you see, It’s got to be yellow, Don’t try to fool me”……”don’t it  make you want to twist and shout when you’re insides out”

Inside Out

They search for the same thing

True love and happiness

So he shakes his can furiously

Spraying over the world’s mess

THE DEVIL’S BEEN BUSY “in your back yard…… sometimes you think you’re crazy but you know your only mad….. showing no remorse, glowing from the poisons they’ve sprayed on your golf course”

The Devil’s Been Busy

His mind bent, bitter and twisted

She retired from figuring things out

Then he got nasty fuelled with anger

and she began perfecting her pout

RUNAWAY “tears are falling and I feel the pain….. my little runaway”

Runaway

He said She said

HEART dots….—-lines MIND

Differences acknowledged

It’s just the way we are designed

LIKE A SHIP “Go away, Go away, Let me be, Haunting me like a ship on the sea”

Like A Ship

Remarkable connectivity explored

Untangled yet forever joined

They struggled to win each other’s heart

And totally missed the point

CONGRATULATIONS “ you never did know when to stop”

Congratulations

We’re all in this together

going out on a limb for someone

It could lead to falling out of your branch

Hopping mad or free falling as one?

TWEETER AND THE MONKEY MAN “taking the whole thing personally…… never saw them where they standing never saw them when they fell”

Tweeter And The Monkey Man

They enjoyed each other’s company

Once upon a time

But when they both grew up

They didn’t match the nursery rhyme

NOBODY’S CHILD “and no one there to notice them or take away their fears”

Nobody’s Child

The day he noticed that pussyfoot

Her heart opened to discern

Piercing through the outer layers

He cracked her shell so she could learn

IF YOU BELONGED TO ME “you’d be happy as you could be …..”

If You Belonged To Me

With his laser beam precision

Etching initials so careful and deep

Making it public about his intention

What you sow you’re entitled to reap

POOR HOUSE “ will you bring me diamonds and hang around my door”

Poor House

He led her along all the way

Pushing her to the outer edge

Expecting she would eventually fall

So he waited here on the ledge

WHERE WERE YOU LAST NIGHT “were you with someone who reminded you of me……you weren’t waiting where you said, you sent someone in your place instead”

Where Were You Last Night

He kindly held the reins on her buggy

While she searched for a steering wheel

Time differences in their travels

Seemed unbelievable yet so real

YOU TOOK MY BREATH AWAY “you knocked my headlights out…..seems like I’ve lost a wheel”

You Took My Breath Away

She’s no longer a part time passenger

Her own chariot is a faithful companion

Riding up front with her head held high

Destination set for the new dominion

MAXINE “she never came through here again….. time plays tricks on your memory…….they found her blue seraph here on the ground”

Maxine

The foundation of boundaries and status

Follow the achievement of self rule

Wherever they traveled while searching

Unfolded lessons at New Earth School

WILBURY TWIST “put your hand on your head….lift your other foot up, fall on your ass, get back up, put your teeth in a glass” “It’s a different dance for you all to do, spin your body like a screw”

Wilbury Twist

Travelling into different timelines

The Pussyfoot’s pads sense and feel

Treading lightly not to upset anyone

Trying to understand what is real

CONGRATULATIONS “you never did know when to stop”

Congratulations

Opening her mouth however

she usually changes feet

like Bridget Jones saying all the wrong things

while trying hard to be discreet

 

So have they come full circle

Back to square ONE and ONE

Spinning on the turntable

Allowing time to come undone?

 

Where ever the road may lead them

She’ll never be sorry to have known

The boy who kindly held her hand

And watched from afar how she’s grown

END OF THE LINE “it’s alright, riding around in the breeze, waiting for someone to tell you everything, everything’ll work out FINE…….live the life you please, it’s alright

End Of The Line

thought Management

Out of sight searching out of mind

Helpful stints and roles we play blind

Disconnect before they project

Expectations on the table to reject

A silent reaction colours your every move

Retrogrades and renegades etch the old-age groove

Disc Spinner

PussyFootNotes: all retrograde cycles compel us to return to the scene of the crime

which came first…

…thoughts or emotion?

You are a good Egg.

Out of sight OR out of mind

Honour your needs then help the blind

Disconnect before they Project

Expectation spells irritation

Adverse reaction to your every move

Run and hide just to stay alive

Maybe ideas are scrambled thought moods

Extra careful to keep a positive stance

The Eggman and pussyFoot must learn the dance

Habitual patterns we strive to dismantle

Instinctively wanting to improve

Sadly, we might cling onto our baggage

Calculating how much we could lose

All the thought horses and all the thought reigns

Never counted the puzzle pieces and numerous pains

 

Thinking need not rule the roost

Believe in your yolk and let your heart heal

Egg before chicken, chicken before egg

Everlasting happiness you deserve to feel

 

pussyFoot sits on the Wall with safety rail

 

Karmic Spin Cycle

Is it your task to bring them down a peg or two?

soften and bleach before the dark stain spreads?

After the ecstasy we can hang out laundry

Spin some yarns and cut off old threads

pussyfoot thoughts and reminders

Rocky Points and sharp edges

 

It’s real

Its salty

Soggy evidence and signs of being broken

Pussyfoot wallows in depths of raw emotion

And the Rooster crows at three

Tears

Wash  over the Seahorse kissing the moon

As her heart struggles to split open

Why must there be pain from things unspoken?

Simultaneously

Observing this uncomfortable slick

She knows enough to let it slide don’t let it stick

Confused

Paddling in the past

Fossicking in the future

Pussyfoot gains knowledge yet

At a loss to understand

As she sits with this twisted ache

With nobody to hold her hand

Watching

As the motherly witness

She sees the little ones face

Burdened by layers of fear

Memories she cannot simply erase

Resurfacing year after year

Hold

Allowing her little self to whimper

Curling up into the tiniest ball

Like a scared little kitten

Wanting to forget about it all

Still

The swan greets the lamb with wings

Now she finds few words to explain

movement will express this heartfelt pain

It makes her feel so heartbroken

Sad

One step back

The wasp had given us an important token

Don’t hold so tight on rewind

Replayed in the mind like a movie night

Detach

Take a seat and fill the gap

Madness barks and resentment bites

She listens when the dog speaks back

Once more

Refill the cup and hold more light

Find your smile and remember to laugh

Try hard to forgive

It’s simply a narrower path

Pussyfoots hurdles and hurts

Navigating the seasonal “intensity”

Reading the cloud formations and animal symbolism (December 2016)

make hay while the sun shines

T hey ran out of bailing twine

H eydays were almost over

A int no sunshine when shes gone

N ow it’s all over red rover

K iss and hug… always play well together

S ay farewell my friend but never say never

Pussyfoot says Thanks for the good times 2016

 

Know when to hold

Played as a Fool by the Joker
Wrong deck…
…Shuffles again
To think I would have done anything
For him
Give up my heart again
My life my home and my closest friend
I’ve been such a Fool
More than once
More than twice
I must have loved too much
My mirror reVersa is my Vice
He’s a space cowboy
An interplanetary romeo
Some call him the gang-star of love
He Played me like a shark
Came after me in the dark
But that’s not where I wanted to stay
I don’t go out – not now that you’re in
Nobody else will ever know
That part of me that can’t let go
I’ve already Dealt with the Tarot
and gambled away with Poker
Why would I low down again with a
Serial Midnight Toker?

Pussyfoot has so many songs floating around that they ended up all mashed up

i think it started out with cold feet then Happy Feet

Two is company…

Beware of that sticky third aspect

Playing unholy triad without respect

There is you and there is me

and invariably we become three

This bliss seems like divine interventions

The perfect match in soul mate dimensions

Then splitting off into some parallel universe

where two lovers meet to relate and converse

A portal left open is a dangerous invitation

for dark cupid’s poison arrows perforation

Once you’ve been stung you will fall under his spell

Whilst evil spirits set the table and ring your bell

Food for thought and thoughts bend over rude

They will feed on your emotion and fertilise your mood

Take care and keep hold of your positive light

Negativity breeds pain and brings darkness upon night

Safe guard your mind to allow for better perception

If there are birds in your antennae you may have a dodgy connection

Seeking help try looking toward a higher authority

Speaking with your almighty SELF will ultimately help the majority

I write these INKlings from a place in liquid time

Where Pussyfoot is mesmerised then balanced with rhyme
