There’s a world down there,unaware.

They build kingdoms and homes

They have lives , they thrive.

They kill ,they eat, they screw

They just do.

Instead of looking up for answers we should look down

The benevolent girl who saves the spider

The scared adult who squashes it with his foot

Sometimes there’s reasoning to what we do.


All the different layers

To whom should they send their prayers ?

Does the ant even notice me when I walk in his dominion?

Or is the anteater the only thing it sees ?

Too small to understand my ways.

Too different to begin to comprehend.

So when I try to decipher the reasons why

I will no longer look up to the sky

The meaning of life the all knowing and seeing

Is animal, plant and human being.

So I suppose even if it’s raining

I’ll try to make myself entertaining

Who knows somewhere for all I know

I’m appearing on a wildlife show.



Rope Hope

Today I learned what it felt like to be alone.

More alone than someone with no one.

The solitude that stops your heart because every person in your life is not really there at all.

Is this a dream I wonder ?

Did I imagine bridges made of stone when in reality there were was only frayed rope?

No hope.


13 reasons why ? I give you a million.

Made of shrugs, insincere hugs

Righteousness and pontification


And yet I suppose it’s better to wake up and see that I’m on the edge of a cliff.

And that I have been for a long time.

What’s keeping me here when the love I thought you all wanted has met nothing but ice.

Not nice. Not nice.

Oh well my dears.

I suppose you will tell yourselves you did your best.

Don’t blame yourself. She wasn’t right in the head.

She’s better off….

Don’t worry I won’t do anything “silly” though

Still it’s good to know

That when I needed my blood

You were all no fucking good.

I brought you stardust.

I went all the way up to the heavens

And gathered it in the palm of my hands.

I fought my way back into your murky atmosphere

Just to get a nod. A pat on the head.

But instead of warm air I got a vacuum

Cold and harsh

You suck the life from me.

How can there be lust

Without a sprinkle of stardust?



Oh life thank you

You saw I was down and decided to put your cosmic foot on my head.

Things weren’t bad enough

No I wasn’t calling your bluff!

Am I a Sims character in your game?

Are you fucking with me ?

Tune in to see me lose my mind?

Should be good.

Yes.. yes I made some bad choices

But I could do with more understanding voices

Not the judgy, preachy kind.. oh no

The ones who say “I told you so”.

Common world, give me a break

Stop giving me floods on top of earthquakes

Maybe there’s a lesson I’m supposed to learn

“You do something bad

In life you shall burn.”

I get it. I get it. Enough is enough.

Be kind to me world, don’t make it rough.

You don’t know the push that will make me cry

Another shove and I might die.

I’m not as strong as you all think

I’m edging dangerously close to the brink

But I still have an umbrella against the rain.

Some semblance of preservation against the pain.

But oh wait . Oh dear. Oh Hell no.

I can’t believe it’s starting to snow.

(C) Slumpless


I have a defense team , did you know that ?

Probably not.

Every lie you tell they add a brick.

Brick by invisible brick.

It’s quite clever you see.

But that’s the point can’t.

They’re your legacy.

Soon your lips will pucker to reach mine

And Bam. Ouch.What’s that ?

How do you not recognise your own creation ?

You seem smaller to me today.

But I stand tall

Protected by this invisible wall.

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.

Gas Light

You met your match, you lit the light

And you didn’t think I shone so bright

So you played me like a cat plays with a mouse

You spat at my house

You thought I had no idea

Your old methods worked before

But I’m not humble brother

I’m not stupid mother

Naive whore.

You knocked on the wrong door.

My brain forms connections while yours lies dormant

I know a serpent when I get bitten once

But I’m the charmer

Not you.

If you need to stick your dick

In other doors ,

Then do it silly

But your balls will get chilly

I’m not the jealous kind

I think you want me to mind.

I think your lies are how you try to control me.

Make me think I’m crazy.

Crazy girl. Crazy girl.

Lucky for me, I know I’m Loco.

But not for you and never because.

Oh there now. Don’t cry those crocodile tears my dear.

It’s ok to be caught out by someone like me.

I’m clever you see ? Not the fool you hoped I’d be.

So do stop your lying

It’s ever so trying.

Kinda boring if I’m honest

You’re turning me off.

Soon there will be no electricity

Just gas light.
