Waves

I look for comfort in billowing spume.

Thunderous. Luminous. Vicious.

Circular motion then thundering roar

That’s where my heart can soar.

That body. That body.

That mass. Oh my.

I can barely hear the seagulls cry.

I seek comfort in it’s swishy gurgle

Its undulating moves.

Its undertow , high and low. 

I can ride this beast 

But can never conquer it’s swell.

Oh well.

I’m driftwood . 

Bobbing. Bobbing. Babbling.

Rushing to shore. Rushing to shore.

Then poof….. No more. 

No more me. 

Only soft yellow sands

Formed from a million things that were once tough as rock.

But are now full of footprints.

Soft And Sad 

I will follow you like a whimper

Soft and sad. Slobbering on your shoulder.

You hate the way my nostrils flare 

The way my face puffs when I cry

I’m a useless jelly

A wobbling mass

“Silly Billy.Silly Billy.”

You say it with no hint of light

No glint of love. 

You have nothing else to say.
And I have nowhere else to go.

Blow me

Blow me.

Blow me out. 

Just keep exhaling. 

You know we’re failing.

Do it. Until I am no more than a distant mist.
I’ll turn to cloud and then to rain.

Either way I’ll end up in a drain.

But maybe just maybe..

I will fall in a stream.

Or end up in someone’s soaking dream. 

So blow me. Blow me well.

Because your breath is purgatory but your lungs are hell.

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)

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.

Calipers

cigarette-2179358_1920

You squeezed my skull in calipers

Found me lacking.

I tried to add inches to my intellect-Big words to my little life.

But my head hurts from all this trying

You hold your cigarette with disdain

I should have expected the same.

That black smoke that wakes you in the morning and lulls you to sleep

It only fills your lungs but not your heart

I guess I’m the same.

Breathed in and puffed out.

You’ll give up on me

Eventually.
