Buck Off

So jump and shake. Bruise and buck.jpg

I fastened my soul to you a long time ago

And I can’t quite seem to undo the latch

Though you toss and kick

I still sit tight

Waiting for the time to be right.

Your rolling nerves just under my skin

Tell me there’s nothing left within

Not for me not for what we were

Of that you’re really making sure.

So jump and shake. Bruise and buck

One of these days I’ll stop giving a f#%*$

Slut ( Inspired by ‘Malèna’)

Malena.jpg

She’s a slut you know

She makes them cum she lets them go.

She wears her tank tops way too tight

She wears short skirts.

 It’s just not right.

She leads them on

They can’t help but fall

Into her wicked snare

Enthralled.

You can’t blame them.

She’s a manipulative whore

A line of suitors out the door.

Her soft skin, drives them insane

A pity she doesn’t have a brain.

She should cover up. Hide her skin

Then maybe our men wouldn’t sin.

Let’s blame her. Let’s call her a easy

Because it could never be that our men are sleazy.

She’s so beautiful and so pretty

It just makes us feel extra shitty

We’d rather judge her wanton ways

How else would we spend our boring days?

Rust

wash-1203594_1920

Your looks will fade my love

And all the endless preening will come to naught

I was once like you

In other flames, my comfort sought

I let my fire dwindle while I stoked theirs.

And danced like a dervish and whirled through their stares.

Slow it was, the creeping decay

Which turned copper to rust

Grass to hay.

Until one day they looked no more.

And my inner workings were merely gore.

Left uncared for … my brain did rot

And thus it is….my unhappy lot.

So  dance my pretty

I’m not saying no

But keep your inner fire burning

Because your looks will go.

Malongering

bronze-statue-1163163_1920.jpg

My sad eye is pressed up against the wall

I heard the nightingale’s silent call

Out there everything shimmers

You  in the middle of a lake that glimmers

Flora and fauna and mossy roads

Faeries and pixies and croaking toads.

Water spouting out your finger

A thousand reasons to let me linger

Staring out at your bright world

Ignoring the fact that I’m being absurd.

Is it better to have a crack

Or does it just highlight what I lack?

Goodbye

child-1835730_1920.jpg

I just wanted to take his little hand and run.

Jump on a bus and go on an adventure.

He didn’t want to go to school and little sobs racked his big soul.

His quivering lips , his wet eyes.

I wasn’t ready for such goodbyes.

All I could think was that:

His whole life would be filled with timetables.

One day

He wouldn’t be able to run away.

So why not today son?Why the hell not.

Let’s run while we still can.

While it’s still fun

Because someday you won’t have your mum.

Someday you’ll be in a suit and tie

With no one at the gate to wave goodbye

When I die

And when I die you can reveal my name

And they’ll say: “I didn’t realise she was so sad.”

But aren’t we all? 

Sometimes.

(Some more than most)

Semi-decent Human

pair-1974236_1920.jpg

Your persistence paid off…

I love you.

Yep that’s it. I do.

You are human after all.

And that is my only requirement.

A semi-decent human and I’ll be yours forever.

That’s why I don’t allow myself to go so easy.

There isn’t enough of me to divide out with you all.

That’s why it took so long.

But once you chip away the shell

I’m all soft inside.

I’m like slime in those kids toys.

Throw me around and I’ll stick to the wall

I’ll stick to you all.

So be careful.

Once I’m covered in fluff

You’ll have enough
