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?

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

Softer Falls

rest-52495_1920.jpg
Did you sleep child through it all?
The Winter snow, the Spring rainfall?
While the world was teeming, calling your name
You just kept on dozing all the same
Aye Sir I did. I slumbered fast
And hoped the peace it brought would last
For only in the closing eyes
Was I able to drown out horrible cries
Aye I did Sir, I slumbered tight
Through lavish days and lulling nights
I felt the moon crown in my thighs
Felt the sun heat turquoise skies
And still I lay and still I slept
While children laughed and old ladies wept
I will always sleep
I will always laze
Not for me this ‘living craze’
For I was made for softer falls
For wider skies and gilded halls
I was made for whirring stars
For glimmering blackness
For noiseless cars.
And would you sleep boy,through your whole life?
Though not all just hardship, not all strife?
Aye Sir yes,I would indeed
Not for me this greedy breed
The world is made of many kinds
Those who live it, they don’t mind
But I am certainly not one of those
So please do leave me to repose
I  really can’t carry this heavy lumber
So Sir good night. I’m off to slumber.

Nothing to worry about

fear-of-heights-2040805_1920

There’s torment in the pit of me

And this tight ball of fear won’t disappear

I sit, consumed with worry

I can’t quite get a grip

These thoughts that dangle from my brain

Are covered in spiders.

Yesterday I bounced on land

Now I sink into quicksand

Is anyone else the same?

Or am I all alone in this video game?

The doctor dismissed me by being gruff

Doesn’t he know I’ve had enough?

Nothing again will fill me with cheer.

I have nothing to worry about

But everything to fear

Coma

bed-1836316_1920

I’m in a self-induced coma

I can’t cope with this life

So I’ll shut it out for now

Stop paying attention

Turn off the TV

Smother the radio

Try to find joy inside

Hope that my childish notion of happy endings

Can still come true.

” Stop the world I want to get off?”

Nah… just stop the noise.

Wash-up!

hand-1832921_1920

Just do the washing-up already

Pick the clothes up from the floor

Write that book you’ve been talking about

Paint that peeling door.

Just go for a relaxing walk

Sit and read a book

Cook that cake you wanted to

Give that film a look.

This is what my brain says

Day after day after day

But my soul just wants to sit here

And the world to go  away.

It is me!

Once you recognise this then you know what needs to change. The blame game can only take you so far but ownership of your flaws or problems can propel you forwards into the life you want.

Too close 

humanity-2045992_1920.jpg

She sat too close.Burped then sneezed. I could smell supper on her breath as her leg grazed mine. She sniffled and her stomach growled while the music through her earphones.. battered the just blissful silence. Relentless closeness. If I moved away it would be obvious. I felt boxed in by her human noises. I work so hard on subduing mine.

I felt angry at her lack of care, lack of aware.

How dare she ? Impinge on my space? Get in my face?

I was used to sanitized life. Minty breath… an acceptable distance between us all.

I wanted to growl at her. I wanted to push her away. I needed to say…

Something.

I turned and was about to glare at her latest emission

But was met with a surprise.

A smile that reached her eyes.

I could forgive her then.

For now I was seeing

She was behaving like

A human being.
