The reason you don't want to live
Is called: unwillingness-to-forgive

On this day, I read these words
you will only see me once
On this day, I thought to myself
not a chance
You became my crayon box
where I can pick a colour for the day
and as time went by, I opened my heart
for you to come and stay
You inspired me to colour in my life
sometimes outside the lines
I became my own Picasso
You became my Mona Lisa

During the absent days,
although you were near
but at the same time
in some other place,
love may have been there
but I had to guess
most of the time,
and I was terrible at it

i have no idea how to reconcile the fact that,
i knew people once, like i know the lines on my face.
people who now fade so far into my memories that nothing reminds me of them.
my mum says, thats the way it is.
that life is about the fading and the renewal.
the old memories being old and never present.
but i cant stomach it!
it makes me completely sick.
i wish i knew eve...

I hear a voice,
Saying to step beside,
As a wall stands by,
Silent to the tragedy,
What a travesty,
Holding down a flower,
What a world that eats more and more,
I heard my ears ring today,
They stood beside on angels,
Dead dead deadly angels,
Barking orders like mad,
The ravenous things between your seat cushion,
The very thought can drink you whole,
In mind and in my m...

On this beautiful spring day in February
with delphinium-blue skies and cheeky
crocuses splashing purple and dazzling
daffs nodding agreement in this mild April
zephyr of a breeze – then do fongen folk to go on pilgrimage
And palmers to go seeking out strange strands.,
Our pilgrimages tend towards interiority
& still seek relics of a past that cannot last.
I imagine that if ...

i would fall from heights
shaking Lucifer terrified
for Luna's starry skies to linger,
in a Jashar night, by your side.
floating on Chopin stroked ivory nocturnes
swimming in deep ruby pools of Pinot Noir
dancing on your flowering lips,
sweet with vanilla cigarette smoke.
life is beautiful.
phosphorus waves of purple patches
carry me from seas of stormy eyes
onto shores sanctuary ...

simply being loved
a way to not get caught
this crazy disease
pleases me to say the least
signs came way to late, i cant leave
weak to even speak about the boy in the bubble
world wide seperation of church and state
neverending heartbreaking stories of former sex slaves
passed on to the next messed up in the head bad to the bone we all know human waste just to replace and e...

I saw a version of myself
In the mirror
Only caught by my peripheral vision
But the dark circles around his eyes
Showed me what lurks
In the shadows of my mind
Not representative of who I am
But all the pain, the hurt that I've seen
It's easy to fall
Into a corrupted state of being
But to learn how to bring balance
Between darkness and light
And see the h...

I am surrounded with the ghosts
Each and every day I blame
The heartless bodies on my toes
I am surrounded by some dust
That has always been in their eyes
They look but just cannot see
That their life is full of lies
Do you ever wanna be surrounded by the mud
Wherein their souls are stuck
Shall we draw this sharp line once again
Between our minds that have already g...

The theatre of war
Is two steps from your chair.
You watch it on the screen,
You calculate the odds
While weighing up the form
And placing your next bet
On where the bombs will fall.
Those in the know predict
That Kyiv is odds-on.
The news comes through at six:
Bulls-eye! Time to collect,
For your holiday cruise.
But please, gamble responsibly!

She had been suffering,
The broken relationships
under the cracked memoirs
Bones almost plundered
With the fearful hopes,
anxious, doubtful all the way
So I slowed down a little bit,
With fragments of kisses
With delicate touches
of makeover trials
With the letters denote
something like love or etc.
Smell of nights,
music of movements

He dips out from the world of swords and spears
Dropping his shield
Dropping his head between his knees
He watches the colours floating behind closed eyes
Swarming and flooding the well-worn tears
The claustrophobic chain of events played out
Twice three times a day
Until with all of his heaving sobs he jumps right in
Into the numbing pools embrace
Lost in a journey of u...

it creeps in like hope
the veiled shape of it
flowers watered in
fears denying all expected
discarded aimed star-ward
like a voice
toneless in the void

I love you so much
I am a splattered mess on the floor,
waiting for strong gentle hands to whisk me away.
I love you so much
I want to shower you with everything I have
like Santa Claus at Christmas delivering toys across the sky.
I love you so much
I am obliterated with hope that every good thing will come your way.
I love you so much
that the spa...

Passion, Warmth, Peace, Desire
Who knew such words could mean alot.
Yet, the mere thought of it, keeps me up at night.
Lately, I can't help the thoughts that clouds my mind;
'Of us enjoying the beautiful stars
While I enjoy the sweet sound of your voice like velvet mixed with honey.
Or the sturdy outline of your neck,
I can't help but want to trail kisses on it.
Just the ...

but we are not birds
navigate through darkness
but we are no bats
together we traverse all the world
but we are not clouds
ascend to the heights
but we are no angels
together we leave the worms behind
but we are not astronauts
finding bliss in weightlessness
but we're no aliens
and in freefall together
we seek no safety-net
the sky could not be bluer
while closer we hold each ot...

A walk down a countryside path
bathed in the morning light
Trees still deep in their winter sleep
the ground still frosty white
Above the far horizon
the sun is slowly rising
A moment of mindfulness
that only nature can bring

He looks like Will from The Inbetweeners
His friend doesn't seem to have a face at all
They are on holiday somewhere warm
They aren't talking much
Not arguing or anything
But there is something not being said
They don't seem to be having much fun
They are mostly just lazing about in the sun
Jump to their hotel
Then immediately to a large Georgian House
They are w...

The day's parlance
lacks all patience.
So many seem
to need a sceptre
on which to balance
all that incompetence.
And the potion
in the cauldron
aims to animate
nobody but the zealot.
But what if
the very premise
is flawed, crumbles
at the mere mention
of a wrathful god?

‘Cross springy grass with sodden shoes
where mountainside and valley fuse,
up zig-zag paths where slopes are steep
trod by the hooves of countless sheep;
and now we too traverse and climb
through clumps of clover, strewn with thyme.
Around the scree, across the rocks
and wind-whipped dandelion clocks
until atop that final knoll
where motionless we stood in thrall,...

I’m seeing well-beings,
being more body conscious,
conscious of the way they look,
looking into the cosmetic mirror
as they contemplate consider,
which teeth they can reconfigure,
liposuction, and a slight tummy tuck.
I’m seeing well-beings,
being mindful and meditate,
meditate into a transcendental state,
stating online rhyming couplet...

things go badly

The first time that I saw him I heard his scooter beep
He made a big impression then which memory I shall keep.
I copped him outside Flavour’s (sic) (Apostrophe Abuse!
Grammatical precision here is played with fast and loose).
For this is downtown Castleford where orange Tigers prowl
And few here know the difference twixt consonant and vowel.
But thats another story (sic) so, hel...

Nature has a way of making you take a break
Your back begins to ache from laying in bed all day
The pile of snot filled tissues overflow onto the floor
The pulsating pain with every heart beat reverberates through the noggin
Eyes can't seem to fixate very long on the screen before the strain is unbearable
Even a thought hurts
Animals still need fed
