WoPoWriMo 2014

Friday, January 31st, 2014

I’m taking part in the WoPo challenge to write a poem a day in February, though I’ll be doing my standard of changing it slightly so that I am spending 30 hrs on poetry stuff instead. I know there are only 28 days in Feb but the 30 hrs suits me really well 🙂 I’m […]

Gagging Bill

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

I gag Chocking down bitter pills Of make things better By a sweep under the rug What the public don’t know Wont hurt them Protesters hurt As do charity pleas It is for my own good Why can’t we see Protected Lock it down No room for the free Unpredictable No room in the new […]

The razor blade ride you took We hope flew you into the sky You never looked back Yet you felt regret Your note told us so

Treated Like an Adult

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

The years weigh heavy around the eyes But the mind still clasps the rag doll tight Locked behind amber eyes Simplistic thoughts cascade In complex ways Only unhappy when others say As an adult only you are to be treated And they took your doll away Note: sadly this was a real situation, a lady […]
