I Want

Wednesday, November 6th, 2019

I want to be free but without loosing those who tethered I want to be without pain but not without sensation I want to achieve what I can see without killing what I can’t I want to lose the fear of the dark without loosing empathy I want to solidify my dreams without crystalising the […]

Guidance

Monday, October 28th, 2019

I am an orange ball Bouncing up and down Bright and glaring Guiding others Showing them how to sing This song An important song I start by building them Cell by cell Until they are free Then I feed them So they grow And learn I am an orange ball Sometimes they sing high And […]

Over Edit

Monday, October 21st, 2019

They killed the poem with over punctuation Licking wounds with ticks and commers Bullet wholes peppered the corpse Fulle stops bleeding holes of stattico gun fire They cut the flesh from it leaving a skeleton of stark meaning Intracasies in a depth of deep meanings It was sadly edited into a shallow grave

Sound Built

Wednesday, October 16th, 2019

What of the sound that built the word? What of the word that built the story? What of the story that built the concept? What of the concept that built the world? What of the world that built the people? What of the people who built the sound?

Just a Girl

Sunday, October 6th, 2019

Just a girl broken, small Just a girl smiling faintly Just a girl tearful, restrained Just a girl hurting Just a girl no one on her own Just a girl full of hate Just a girl seeming insane Just a girl on her own Just a girl longing Just a girl numbed by the shout […]

Bedroom Tax

Saturday, September 21st, 2019

A sea of words bounded by a shore of concept Towers built of language Flash out meaning Standing on the island of convention saving the would be drowned In vessels of knowledge seeking the catch of inspiration Looking to the horizon for ideas

The Twin I Shall Never Be

Friday, September 6th, 2019

I wonder what it would have been? This life not on my own A companion from my earliest days Would you have been pleased with me? What would you have looked like? I miss you I’ve craved you all my life Looked for you in my earliest days Not content on my own Never on […]

Jean’s Welly’s

Monday, August 26th, 2019

Jean’s wellys are rather smelly As she wont wear her socks So when we go walking She gets blisters the size of rocks But what’s worse is those blisters burst And she expects to be nursed! With a wail and a whimper It’s home we flitter Meaning poor mummy ain’t gonna get no fitter!
