Smart phone

Only smart if you are….I’m not.

I proved that.

I descended into the proverbial rabbit hole

I just couldn’t stop myself. The heat it generated in my skull should keep the battery going for years.

Hours of searching for something I was never even sure existed

By trying to prove to myself I wasn’t crazy … I became just that.

Lock me out. Of it. Of life. Of me.

Off

Lie down

You fought until the bitter end

I’ll give you that at least

All the proof in front of me

You thought it was behind you.

You were like a cornered bird.

But at least they can fly.

You had nowhere to go

You turned into a festering mass

And I wondered how I ever saw anything else

Where were your soft, gentle hands ?

Where was your kind heart?

One lie down.

How many more ?

Catching Stars

I can’t hope to catch the stars

Their jagged edges would cut through my net

And then what ?

To have but for a moment

Shimmering shine.

All mine.

But then for it to go?

How could my feet touch soil

My hands and body toil

Day after mutinous day

When my light had gone away?

I won’t lie in the gutter and look at the stars

I will hold the moon

Swing like a baboon.

I will not search for heaven on earth

Magic ends at birth

I will strap myself to comet

Whirl and soar and bathe in whispy galaxy

I will be part of the dream

Rather than the sleep

I will become the starlight

While you below shall weep.

The Cull de Sac

I’m in a culling mood today

The type where no bullshit is allowed

If you want to be part of my life

Try fucking harder.

If you want respect….

Actually, I thought this was all pretty obvious

Oh well. Time tells.

She told on you and you and you too.

She told on my Mother and Father.

They should have tried bloody harder.

Today I have no patience for a shoulder shrug

I need people who willingly hug.

The kind who wrap me in fuzzy love

The ones who seem to be sent from above.

So today my whip is going to crack

Be a decent person or get the sack.

This is for my best friend who puts her money where her mouth is and shows kindness instead of smugness. You know who you are xxx

Medusa

I must have met Medusa

For a brief moment.

Enough to turn my heart to stone.

Those snakes in her hair

Each of them with their own wicked agenda

Each the root of the cause

A heart that never thaws.

Bigger Lakes

I took you to the lakes

“Is this it?” You said.

I took you to the hills but you wanted mountains.

To the woods but you wanted jungle.

I gave you my heart. But you took my soul.

My hand, but you grabbed my neck.

My devotion was met with no emotion.

My love hit a brick wall.

I’m learning to avoid the fall.

There are oceans out there for you to paddle

There are forests with trees for you to climb

Why the fuck did you even pick mine?

I hope you find what you seek

But please, please, please!

Don’t prey on the weak.

Care Less

I didn’t realise it but I was waiting.

Waiting for you to shed that brittle skin

To show me someone better

To prove my doubting wrong.

I tried to shrug away your strange behaviour

Those angry outbursts make me cringe.

I tried to justify your lies

Your sideways glances at other women ?

I held back my whinge.

I kept waiting.

Over and over I gave into you.

Then suddenly oh suddenly I became aware

Of that wonderful feeling of “I don’t care”

PS: The funny thing of being able to post this

Is I know you never check my blog

Because on top of being a moron

You are also a self-centered hog 🐗
