Uncontrollably Charmed (Lyrics)

by Marc Gunn, July 1998 I wrote this poem several years ago inspired in part by love of Dungeons & Dragons and in part by my young, passionate view of love. Throw back your neck for the vampire. The sire will drain you of your needs. He’ll bleed away some grand design That you were […]

Climb the Fence

by Marc Gunn, September 9, 2004 I was watching Il Postino yesterday and found myself inspired by the movie and recent thoughts on travel and Italy. It yielded this poem. The sea, the stars, the sky, The earth, the sand, The world is a metaphor For something else, And that ‘something else’ Is a metaphor […]

Italy Escapes

I was trying to think this evening, what is it I love so much about Italy. Sure, there are the obvious answers, like It’s ITALY! But that doesn’t quite explain it all, especially knowing I’m co-dependent and that one my reasons is to escape. I’ve been an escapist all my life. I can’t think of […]

Live For Another Day

by Marc Gunn, August 22, 2004 Breaking up is difficult. But learning to forgive one’s self is even more difficult, and it’s never easy to break the cycle, heal, and move on. Bathing in self-induced depression. Longing for natural love. Wondering if I gave it up. Hoping I’ll soon recover. Praying I will heal quickly. […]

Kitty Cat (Lyrics, parody of Mari Mac)

Lyrics by Pam Owens, June 7, 2004 I started playing with this in my head after I sent you the joking list of songs last night for your new “Irish Drinking Songs for Cat Lovers” album! I know it’s pretty strange! Comes from 27 years of being an alcohol and drug counselor. Now I have […]

Black Is the Color (of My Cat’s Fur)

by Marc Gunn, Bard 6/30/2004 A Celtic love ballad based on the Celtic folk song “Black Is the Color” for my “Irish Drinking Songs for Cat Lovers” CD… or is it? One thing I love about this project is following the theme of the songs I’m parodying. This, like the original, turns from a simple […]
