I tried beautiful,
I tried pristine,
I was no good at it
I’m not neat within
I’m not “clean”
Even externally, I cannot master
Clearing every bit of clutter
I’m raw, like an egg
It’s not pretty to have a cracked head
But if I don’t
I’m practically dead
As inanimate and detached as my wooden bed
To be raw is
But it’s rich with fee...

If poetry be the food of love, write on!
If it be food for freedom, then kick off!
If you care aught for poetry Write Out Loud!
If you care aught for love then stay not quiet!
If you care aught for freedom, then kick off!
If you will fight with me then you are on!

I’m sorry to disappoint you
That I can be too sweet and so weak
And yet I can be cold and cruel too
That I can completely snap to my core
And morph into a creature of different sorts
I’m sorry that I’m not white or black
Or of any matter
For that fact
I’m not anything
Not wholly whole
Has been my superpower...

Imagine being totally untethered
After feeling chain linked

Missing you is mourning you
Leaving you is still losing you
And I’m just as lost
As I made you
If it could be
I would make it be
Should I be chain linked again
I would make it good

The cold winter air whistles melodically
A gentle breeze sneaks past my fingers
Memories of autumn spring forth
So close yet so far away
Teddy coat wearers scattered across the London fog
AirPods in, walking briskly
Listening to my favourite tunes
Not trying to blend in
Just learning to be
Realising that happiness is free

Living here in the free world,
We can get up every day,
Expressing our opinions
And saying, more or less, the things we want to say.
Inconvenient, no doubt, for some, at times,
Who cannot hide the truth or cover up their crimes.
While elsewhere it can be dangerous to even smile
Or raise an eyebrow, clench your teeth (or fist),
For showing disapproval puts you on a...
