About
Greetings, my name is John Heavern, a lyrical slave to poetry, a blue-collar guy frozen in time between reason and rhyme. Born and raised in Buffalo, NY, I moved to Charlotte, NC at the age of 16. I served 4 years in the U.S. Navy after high school and began my REAL education: experiencing worlds of amazing mediocrities we tend to take for granted or ignore. I also lived in Southeast Georgia and Maricopa, AZ for 5 years each, Arizona serving as an inspirational nitro boost. I have been a closet writer for years. My journey beginning as a relief valve for my pent-up emotions. Having no literary point of reference, I discovered my poems closely resembled song lyrics. Pursuant to this epiphany, I began to write poetry in standard lyrical format. I currently have 5 music demos, three of which are videos on youtube. Music for demos created by musicians, videos created by myself. Youtube link available here. I currently have over 150 complete lyrical poems of various subject matter and disposition I best describe as: "Lyrical poetry of observational introspection". I realize they may be too "lymricky" for some people’s tastes but are designed to accompany 4/4 musical composition and be “song-friendly”. It is my goal to infuse some depth and sophistication into an entertaining, rhythmically simple form of literary rhyme patterns for both the literary and musical community. “Lyrical spheres, inspired frontiers, creations awaiting a musical dawn”... - JPH Youtube site: https://www.youtube.com/user/Sloganspun?feature=mhee

S-8/23/18, Wheels

An ancient invention's been changing the face
of implementation at history's pace.
The circles of life spin around to reveal
a human condition connected to wheels.

Ch) They can turn all the gears we are grinding,
a conveyance to places we're finding.
Their magic supplanted, we take them for granted
in the shapes of the lives they're defining.
Our linear thinking's confining
as the wheels of progression are climbing. `

Br1) Whenever a motion is found,
they're usually hanging around. .
Wheels keep it moving as psysics is proving
the theory of forward momentum is sound.

They're found in the makings of many machines,
increasing production to heights never seen.
There's wheels on the buses, the trailers and trains,
cars going far and adopting their name.

Ch) They can turn all the gears we are grinding,
a conveyance to places we're finding.
Their magic supplanted, we take them for granted
in the shapes of the lives they're defining.
Our linear thinking's confining
as the wheels of progression are climbing.

Br2) Infused in the logic of man
turn wheels of incredible plans,
simply engaging, historically staging
the dreams and ideas we spin on demand.

S-1/29/13, Vision

Up and down and all around,
it breaks the light of day.
Compromised and analyzed,
scenes convene assorted ways.
Entity of destiny peering through a layered haze.

Ch) Vision of purpose patiently waits
as truth and illusion seek favor with fate.
Vision of reason slightly misled
sees mind deviation appearing instead.
Vision is often misread,
prone to delusion in dubious heads.

Fools inclined to half a mind,
awash in platitudes.
Rumors dance with half a chance
to bend their attitudes.
Vision is a prison in diminished latitudes.

Ch) Vision of purpose patiently waits
as truth and illusion seek favor with fate.
Vision of reason slightly misled
sees mind deviation appearing instead.
Vision is often misread,
prone to delusion in dubious heads.

Br) Vision is sight in multiple form,
people agree or they break from the norm.
Vision can conquer impossible goals,
visit the stars from the depths of a soul.
Vision requires a toll:
raising desire and taking control.

Ch) Vision of purpose patiently waits
as truth and illusion seek favor with fate.
Vision of reason slightly misled
sees mind deviation appearing instead.
Vision is often misread,
prone to delusion in dubious heads.

S-8/29/12, Lucidity

Not so easy to combine
the pieces to my peace of mind.
Emotions that procrastinate
can cause a schizophrenic state.
Mental games are puzzling me,
I'm crazy for lucidity.

Ch) Lucidity, topic of philosophy.
The worry I bear wearily wears
my logic to wicked extremes.
Lucidity, captivates propriety.
Decorum I hide, imprisoned and tied
to a heart that aches to be free.
Lucidity's shaky in me.

Hard to say what happens next,
my crystal ball is too complex.
Wading through my past mistakes,
my urgency accelerates.
Consternation vexing me,
a battle for lucidity.

Ch) Lucidity, topic of philosophy.
The worry I bear wearily wears
my logic to wicked extremes.
Lucidity, captivates propriety.
Decorum I hide, imprisoned and tied
to a heart that aches to be free.
Lucidity’s shaky in me.

Br) Paths to reason overgrown
from seeds of chaos I have sown.
Called to march in perfect time,
my scattered thoughts must fall in line.
Confidence will ease the flow
from how I feel to what I know.
Extrication from my fears,
lucidity between my ears.

Ch) Lucidity, topic of philosophy.
The worry I bear wearily wears
my logic to wicked extremes.
Lucidity, captivates propriety.
Decorum I hide, imprisoned and tied
to a heart that aches to be free.
Lucidity’s shaky in me. (deeptrope@icloud.com)

S-8/17/18, Semi-stitious

The heritage of false belief,
alive and well at present state,
has carried on for centuries
a farce that logic penetrates.
The human mind gets trapped behind
fallacious fears it can't escape.

Br) I cede to some uneasiness on superstitious planes
to some degree because I've seen some things I can't explain.
When fables and fictitious fears appear to intervene,
I guess I'm semi-stitious, falling somewhere in between.
Not a lot, but what I got has influential ways,
my semi-stitious premonitions hide but never stray.

Ch) Semi-superstitious in subconscious kinda' ways,
I can't say why but don't deny my logic's out of phase.
Never too religious but the devil has his due,
and so I've fed my fearful head exaggerated views.
Suspicions are fictitious and yet so repetitious:
ironicly delicious, surreptitious attitude.

All science and technology
can do is wonder how we think.
Apparently, our D.N.A.
has tucked away a missing link.
A disconnect of intellect
is human nature's little kink.

Ch) Semi-superstitious in subconscious kinda' ways,
I can't say why but don't deny my logic's out of phase.
Never too religious but the devil has his due,
and so I've fed my fearful head exaggerated views.
Suspicions are fictitious and yet so repetitious:
ironicly delicious, surreptitious attitude.

S-8/25/18, Reach

It seldom has done any harm
extending the end of an arm,
a gesture of trust intent to adjust
an attitude missing it's charm.
No need for defensive alarms.

Ch) Reach for the stars revered from afar,
hold onto concepts considered bizarre.
Reach for the shores that misgivings ignore,
navigate currents of doubters galore.
Reach for a feeling that destiny stores.

Some haters hide out in the weeds
of harmful, unscroupulous deeds.
They prey on the fact decorum reacts
in ways their deception believes.
A nightmare entrapping a dream.

Ch) Reach for the stars revered from afar,
hold onto concepts considered bizarre.
Reach for the shores that misgivings ignore,
navigate currents of doubters galore.
Reach for a feeling that destiny stores.

Br) We've all been awarded a wonderful chance
to use it or lose it while taking a stance.
The culminization of dreams to be known
is realization to reach for a bone.

Ch) Reach for the stars revered from afar,
hold onto concepts considered bizarre.
Reach for the shores that misgivings ignore,
navigate currents of doubters galore.
Reach for a feeling that destiny stores.

S-8/25/18, Obsession

From youthful beginnings, I knew there were times
my passions could reach unimpeachable climbs.
A heart full of feelings heredity dealt
colliding inside 'til they're physically felt.

Ch) I can't seem to settle it down
whenever it's coming around.
Inspiration burns hot in Utopia's pot
'til obsession is all that I found.
Don't call into question my body's regression,
it's just a concession obsession impounds.

Br) Don't sleep, don't eat, don't watch tv
while something brews inside of me.
Don't give a care to clothes I wear
or partial impropriety.
My common sense has no defense
to counteract the heavy blows
of lone obsession, and possession
of my life within it's throes.

Ch) I can't seem to settle it down
whenever it's coming around.
Inspiration burns hot in Utopia's pot
'til obsession is all that I found.
Don't call into question my body's regression,
it's just a concession obsession impounds.

A trip into madness awaits my return
to test my resiliance and voice a concern.
Emotions are leaving my logic behind
to love my obsession with body and mind.

Ch) I can't seem to settle it down
whenever it's coming around.
Inspiration burns hot in Utopia's pot
'til obsession is all that I found.
Don't call into question my body's regression,
it's just a concession obsession impounds.
