Ghost Train

"They laid tracks for a ghost train," said the engineer. "But who's going to ride it? Ghosts don't buy tickets!"

The rest of the crew laughed, but that night, the train arrived. The ghosts got on, and the engineer was forced to work overtime.

"I thought you said they don't buy tickets!" he grumbled.

Garden Of Lust

From a bed of roses

To a bed of nettles

Smooth satin sheets

Becoming metal

Tender whispers 

On plumped up pillows

Now bitter pills

And weeping willows

Love was taken

Not returned

Lust's a lesson

Never learned

Mistletoe Mistakes

They wanted to kiss

Yet missed

With Mistletoe

How could they resist?

What he didn't know

Was he'd stood

On her toe

A short lived bliss

 

All of their hoping

Just turned into hopping!

I-solation

Frantically he taps on the glass

Louder as they pass

Now he screams

But not through a window

It's a screen

Nobody knows

He's scrolling

His soul away

The Vaper

He was her dragon

Didn't have talons

But their 'nomance'

Dragged on

He kept

Her waiting

In a 'complicationship'

Reputation of 

A reptile

Scaly, bit flaky

A hazardous lizard

Still

In a puff 

Of sweet vaporised smoke

She was sucked

Back in

Cold calling

A bit of poetic free styling flash fiction

 

Phone rings

It's him

She recognises

The tone

'Are you alone?'

He moaned

Sounding 

So far away

 

'Please, don't 

Hang up

Stay'

He says

Funny how he never

Called when

He was alive

She's Trying

{She's Trying}

 



She's trying to forget: 
 



She's trying truly to

force herself to

forget about the

conversations

between them

 



She's trying so hard

to forget his voice 




She's trying to forget

how he made her laugh

even though she felt like

she's was dying on

the inside 




She's trying to forget

all the beautiful

romance...

A Poem A Day For A Year & Self-Evaluation - 18/01

So Sunday is the day on which I am dedicating to self-evaluation. As you may know, at the moment I am going through a bout of depression, which comes and goes and affects me to the point where I freeze at the thought of doing anything even remotely helpful. I am trying to combat this by forcing myself to do things that I see as ‘putting myself out there for the world.’ This blog and Poem A Day For...

A Poem A Day For A Year - 17/01/15

I’m a little drunk off lucky dip tokens at our local bar so today’s blog will be brief. I think some of you may appreciate that after yesterday’s anti-feminism post. Though that post garnered the highest reception since I started doing this so maybe I should lay into good causes more often. Oxfam, I’m coming for you next.

As far as weeks go, it’s not been a good one this week. My productivity h...
