Life's Lost Life

Flicked  flickering sand slices slashes

Pain and anguish portrude pen to paper

Releasing resting relief from crooked corner

Creation creates creativity

Crusty cankers and  cracked crevices

Transitions

Metamorphosis mends mistaken misfortunes

 

Traumatic tyranny transitions into timid tranquility

 

 Backwards Glances shattered broken ballice

Voided

Insignificant Insignificance eats at inner ear

Shards of sharp shrapnel strip shreeking skin

Unforseen, unseen, unforgiving,

Protruding, penetrating, pessimmistic

Pain

 

Closed minds opens eyes visions.

Escaping winds sweep, swept

Past's present forgets future's flames

Burning chips, flake, flick, flicker

Crackling crass crackled cracked cracker

Expectation

entry picture

From time and time again
you proceed to state
how you expect more from me,
how you expect me to reach
such high expectations,
and how you know that I have
that potential to do so.

Yet, I don't know how or why
you proceed to tell me.
Because when I look at myself
I see nothing but a failure.
Absolutely nothing but a failure.

Because, you can give me a day,
you can give me a week,
or p...

LIFE...

entry picture

If there was no happieness
There would be nothing to enjoy.

If there was no sadness
There wouldn't be a care in the world.

If there was no friends
there would be loneliness everywhere.

If there was no uphill battles
there would be no courage
to keep on trying.

And if LIFE itself had nothing
imagine what LIFE would be....

Lost Child

entry picture

Each day I starve
is another day closer to death.

Each day that i'm not loved
is another day i realize
that i am not worthy.

And each day that I'm ignored by others
is another day that I'd rather be dead
than suffering in pain.

Because as I've become
this wandering offspring,
I've become to be invisible
to you and all others.

Cause can't you see

New and Improve

entry picture

I will not let one
walk over me like I had before
beacause, now inside
there's a more refined person
of me you'll find.

A better person,
a more wise kind of gale,
a growing person
whose faith will never stop.

Her mind and heart
Is new and improved.

She will not brake,
she will not fall again,
she will rise from beneath
all her broken dreams and hopes
you created within her.
It's he...

Do you hear that?
That sound?

Its the sound
of your beating heart.
And theres a reason why
it continues to beat.

So, don't hurt yourself or end it
because, someone has hurt you
emotionally or physically.
I say this because, I had also
thought about ending my own life
because, of others had hurt me.

So, listen.

Becoming Alice

entry picture

I gaze into the rabbit hole. It does not gaze back. And still, I am ready to enter. 

This mischevious risk urges my desire

To fall within and forget all that is prior

I comtemplate the life I've lived and all the choices I've choose

And what is next in my life and where will my path go

I relieve my grip and accept this new phenomenon

I fall through the hole and embrace the myste...

Must touch one, twice, thrice!

Otherwise I must pay the price!

Penetrating thoughts that won’t go away,

Compulsions that haunt me day by day;

Anxiety comes, anxiety goes,

Got guilt, depression and so much obsession.

Significance of the Nineteenth Autumn

entry picture

As the nineteenth autumn has come upon me,
It’s a whole new world I see.
Treacherous creatures, so often, hush and hide,
And it seemeth to me, a change in tide.

The poetry of soothing sensation has gone,
The glimmering golden glow of the sun is now none.
Some say,’ The Head is battling with the Heart’.
Well ! All Logic has been torn apart.

As I gaze into the vast emptiness

Stillness

entry picture

Its 3am.

Way passed the sleep hour.

I stand surrounded in surreal stillness.

This moon shy night admits no ray.

No thought

Penetrates my mind. A church bell chimes:

Tick thrice.

And the deadly silence strikes

That deep dark hole of the head.

Nothing is awake.

Nothing moves.

Yet, something appeals. I know it is out there.

But where?

Minutes tick by.

Nature reclaimed

entry picture

The leaves are blossoming.

The time of lime green ripeness is here.

They cling onto the branches,

Their tips winnowing in the gentle breeze.

 

The few leaves which cling no longer,

Rustle on the floor

And are swept away at dusk.

 

The branches continue to shake

And the leaves, in their vitality and freshness,

Partake in the knowing, changing course.

Walking the dog

Walking the dog

The grass is swaying, in the morning breeze, moving gently, tops of the trees
Intoxicating smells, whilst breathing in air, taking in sights, nature does share
Out for a stroll, just walking the dog, spot a young couple, having a snog
Slides are empty and swings are still, kids are playing footy, just over the hill
Birds are chirping, singing their song, I keep on listening ...

Freedom To Live

Fight not against each other, but for the rights of every man, woman and child
Respect that although we come from different walks of life, we are one
Embrace other cultures, allow peace and harmony among all walks of life
End this war on immigration, before it becomes to late and we have to look back on
Damage caused to the lives of others because we wouldn’t change our selfish ways

Tone of Life

Life - like the sound of a bell

Bold at first but fades to a whisper

Who would be the one to tell

Perhaps a mother brother or sister,

 

Past your peak and gone to seed

Your realisation is sudden it would seem

Most of life sat in thought

Just idle dreams of what could have been,

 

The recognition of this phase of being

Propells you forward with purposeful meaning

LOST

Swept away by these waves of confusion,

Iam now stranded in the island of chaos.

Just yesterday I was dreamily looking into the horizon;

Peacefully sailing in my boat of bliss.

I didn't see that big wave coming,

I didn't hear the roar of thunder,

I couldn't smell the storm.

Whoosh,wham,slam,wreck...

And now Iam all alone in this strange wilderness;

I see no light,I can...

If Pain Had No Beauty

If pain had no beauty

Where else would we be?

Loose, languid expression,

Scorned sobriety,

Unhurried of humbling;

Relational depth,

Our hearts and minds spread less

Than their broadest breadth.

Ode To Eva

entry picture

You are sunkissed hair

All seaside skin

The tomboy princess

Scraped knees, bruised shins.

 

A tree climbing angel

My hide and seek belle

All beauty and promise

Like an old wishing well.

 

Such a natural leader

As you're learning and growing

You shine like a beacon

So head strong and knowing.

 

Bringing joy in abundance

As I watch you develop

Darling - Please Don't Call Me 'Dear'

I sit and wait for my Darling babe

To come and tell me

What

To do.

 

She doesn't know I swear so much;

That I was once

A rebellious

Teenager

Too.

 

All my life - ALL of it -

It's still there, you know!

I know.

 

She sees only a segment, thinks I

Belong in care -

Or on death row.

The Cycle Of Life

 

It's not death that comes

its life that passes.

And all that’s left

must turn to ashes.

 

The sun will rise

and the moon will pass,

and the next day comes

when the night slips past.

 

So death cannot come

and make a claim,

for life moves on

and soothes the pain.

Who am I?

Who am I?
Am I all my mashed up mishaps,

Looping, creping, paper chaining through?

Am I clogs of wallpaint stains in

Bedded lanes of devine daisy dew?

Am I rivets, ratchets, harsh lines,

Chiseled by stilettoed hue?

All these thoughts, feelings and instincts;

Which are true?

I sup the type of other mother tongues,

And still ask you....

Who am I?

God Knows I Try

Sometimes I get caught in my stuff,

Sometimes life gets in the way,

Sometimes I have little patience,

And that's ok.

 

Sometimes I really don't like me,

Sometimes I just want to cry,

Sometimes I make the same mistakes,

But God knows I try.

Above, Beyond

entry picture

The morning, crisp and broken by the curfew
Of rising larks and pigeons in the choir,
Its breaching sun is bursting through the grass dew
And thinning out the misty dawn's perspire.
Many rest upon their linen sheets around
And you, the only currently arise,
Solo is your ally when breaking the ground;
Undistracted, undisturbed - your alibis.

Your muscles twitch uncertain of their purpose,

"Schemie Burd"

Have you ever met a "Schemie Burd"

From the south side of the city

Where social housing's at it's worst

And life is pretty shitty.

 

Her attitude is hardened

By the things she's seen and done

Like a 'favour' for a taxi fare

Turning tricks for half a ton.

 

People take a second glance

When they pass her in the street

You can see she was a looker, once

Despit...

My Life

 

That ongoing story that I call my life

Is nothing but a total tangled mess.

It’s a disaster area; a no-go zone

And sometimes I feel like staying at home

 

It’s a random story with a spot of romance

Mixed up with elements of chance

And one way or another it’ll be soon resolved

And for my sins I hope to be absolved

 

The ongoing story that I call my life

Later

This life, these actions, the situations,

the people I meet, cars I drive, places I go.

All of the above make a life, my life.

What do you make of it?

The same as I do or something different?

Do you sum it up simply or in a complicated way?

My own views are hidden, known only to me.

Should I share them with you?

Is that wise? Not just yet.

A CHILDS EYE

Imagine a world of love and laughter
Of fun filled days and freedom till after
The tea time call or the playtime bell
Get back into line or you'll catch some hell

Imagine a world of wildness and wonder, of fun and jest
Of questions and answers and adventurous quest
When time was your own and life was a whim
To walk, to run through grass so long, to swim

The child inside of me.

The hopes and fears

Of the child inside

and every day, in every way

I’m still the child inside.

 

The child inside shapes the view

of the world I see today

and the eyes of the child

are round and wide

and I will be their guide.

Clothes Maketh The Man

Here’s the suit I wore when I was newly born

It’s not worth taking to the charity shop

People today prefer brand new,

So may as well drop it in the skip

 

Ah, my favourite old t-shirt

Once I wore it every day

But now may as well rip it up and make it into cloths

It’s only thin, it’ll easily rip

 

I know that jacket so well

I wore it on my wedding day

Spinning through time, a pirouette we can't avoid

As his time in your life seemed to fly

And the world keeps spinning into uncertain futures
The wounds in it's crust needing serious sutures

never wished any return

Do you remember me Jimmy from all those years ago?

Do you remember when you said;

‘This job will do me until I retire?’

You were a bus driver and I was your conductor

And even you’d be impressed with what I do today

and how far I’ve travelled from those distant days on the road.

The thing is I thought of you the other day

The Secret of Happiness

I was happy and never knew it,

Sad and knew it so well.

Love slipped by but I never noticed,

though love has marked me well.

 

Winter passed and summer came

yet I was living in the cold.

My lover has turned and passed me by

and outside the world grows old.

 

Happiness is trapped for me

When love had cast its spell

I was happy and never knew it

I Am That Seed

 

Time sleeps in the distant desert,

and sitting softly under the yellow sun,

dried and dehydrated,

there is a seed that waits for the rains.

I wait for the rains with open hands

and when they wash over me time wakes refreshed

and I’ll drink all I need

-I am that seed.

The seed that longs to know

the secrets of this distant desert,

The weight of the world on a spider’s web.

Everything is relative, life force flows in each blade of glass.

In each house is a guy or a gal just like me.

I see them from the Edge. This epiphany is mine.

Soon to leave my northern lands, south bound.

Writing to where? Autumn views from

Oldham Edge. When will I return?

(This isn't quite right but here goes . .)

 

Action!

Now there’s a word I’ve longed to say

Let me be a film director just for a day

I’d bathe my sets with natural light

And keep my close ups tight

I’d cast a beautiful girl as my star

and keep her key light bright

She’d be in all my master shots

And I’d fade the soundtrack in soft
