Flaming Agony

FLAMING AGONY

Burning in flames,

The dailys and weeklys

With the cries of the innocents,

The tellys simulcasting the stamped extremities,

Of a soul, we call Women.

Crushed beneath the savage desires of the lousy men.

 

A girl, who once aimed of the skies,

How could have she known,

 Jeopardy awaited on her way back home.

That she’ll be served as a bait to the lust,

Be a Good Girl

Dilute your pant suits,

grow out that cropped hair,

season your long words,

make your language edible -

That's it, baby, be delicious!

By smearing cherry lip gloss on that big mouth of yours,

Hunny, where's the honey on your pale skin?

Why don't you smile more?

You know, that's what we hired your for...

To bring customers in!

I'm talking to you, hey!

Darling! Doll ...

When...?

When will I start living my life?

Tomorrow? Tuesday? 

 

When will I be a size 8?

Have Double Ds

Have boys falling over me

Have an arse as big as Kylie's

 

When will my Prince arrive?

In Air Max and some Adidas

Or if I'm lucky, he might even kiss me

Take me home, then leave me

 

Unsatisfied and alone

It's all experience though

 

Only then will I be ha...

'Small dick syndrome'

So I feel like I've uncovered my own rendition of a super hero power 

When I meet a man I can estimate his dick size within an hour

So this may seem a little seedy, a bit sleezy, but when a man overcompensates with money why does he think it will impress me 

 

One guy on a night out handed me his credit card and told me to drink as much as I dare at his expense 

I politely declined ...

Do you hear me now?

You look at me and forget

I was strong before I was pretty 

 

You disregard my mind in hopes that my heart is a path leading you to my body and briefly

I regret to have met you, you see my eyes before you hear my voice

 

For you have already forgotten the first rule; I am strong 

 

So when I love, I love strongly

And when I hurt, I hurt badly 

 

But when I scream, ...

International Women's Day

entry picture

Pages and pages of pink and pink
roses on dresses and slender chic drink,
All pictures pretty some might think
but none reflecting strength, and that's the thing:

Women's Day isn't all flowers and hearts
it's message shouldn't be limited before it starts,
we are more than our constituent parts
so today try to tear stereotypes apart -

Support our differences, our quirks,

Exploited by the Building Site Bell Ends

For all the bell ends on building sites
and the charmers 
who freely shout abuse from their van
at women going about their day
I often wonder how you would feel 
if someone did that to your Mam.
How would you react if you witnessed 
your own flesh and blood being routinely exploited,
objectified or sexually assaulted?
Would you still cheer and egg the culprits on 
as they leered and jeer...

Tears

Do you still cry for me,

Like I still weep for you,

Those tears blocking everything you see,

Trying to hide the pain when you meet somebody new,

 

Is your vision as blurred as mine,

Behind your beautiful eyes,

I’ve been trying to move on now, for such a long time,

But I keep questioning if I gave this love enough tries,

 

I was hurt,

And I was used,

And now I’m...

Cool Air

 

Cool air replaces where your hands should be,

Fingers locked on bare skin all over me,

The breeze keeps blowing colder and colder,

As the love between us grows older and older,

 

Your tongue parted my lips that way,

Your hands grasped desperately to make me stay,

Yet I still drifted endlessly away,

And I kissed someone new today

REAL MAN

We're the throw away

wives

The use em and lose em

brides

---

Like old cars

you trade us in

for new models

After  putting 

one hell of alot of miles 

on us

---

One man's trash

is another's treasure

---

So here I sit

on the Goodwill's shelf

like the Velveteen Rabbit

Waiting for

a Real Man...

Body Parts

Loop the loop

Pull that knot

Attach my button eyes,

See me

Wink.

 

Smile-

Nod, my Jack in a box head

Bound to a neck of copper springs

Let me sing

And

Wave-

 

My floating foam hands,

Kick my Pinocchio legs

And

Dance –Dance- Dance

On

Tiny crippled plastic feet.

I am alive

Reborn!

 

Do you think I am beautiful?

A day to achieve

I wake up to blue skies and a bright sun
My alarm rings, now my day has begun
I turn on the hot shower, the bathroom begins to steam
When I'm done I dry and put on my best dress
I have an important meeting today so I need to impress 
After the usual traffic jam I finally arrive at work
I'm greeted with smiles from familiar faces
I come face to face with my boss as my heartbeat races

The Scandal That is You

entry picture

She opens her palm and his hand, he hands her

Time for a spin, some sin on the dance floor

I’ve got plans for us just how much can you handle?

Passion’s the mantle,

I’ll make you my Scandal.

 

Beautiful body, mental combatant

Amazing Agent of style and fashion

Miss passion with the most passionate

habits that are old fashioned

Tattoo

‘It’s my skin,’ she said,

But he still shook his head.

Did she not understand

The risk entailed? Once the

Fine pale surface was broken,

There was no going back.

The permanency of a foreign body

Worming its way beneath

Her flesh - this he could not 

Permit. For her own good.

 

Though he paid no heed

To the multicoloured rings

And patterns that each faded

Dear Sigyn

Dear Sigyn,

you fool.

We both know he doesn’t love you.

Catching the venom meant for his eye,

silent even though he should cry

out in fury at your meddling.

 

Dear Sigyn,

you fool.

Even the serpent laughs at you.

I’d think your body was through

even if your heart was still into

an idiot’s errand that no one would rue.

 

Dear Sigyn,

you fool.

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

I Am a Woman

entry picture

 

I am a woman up to the tips of my hair.

I am a woman by spirit and nature.

As no one I have got an innate flair.

As no one I need a daily rapture.

 

I can make an elephant out of a fly,

My ‘yes’ a man can never deny.

 

I do not burn in the fire,

In the water I do not sink,

I know exactly who is a liar,

And know what a man think.

Couple Stragglers

 

Here’s another draft, no pun on pint-pulling intended. Oh – also, while I’m here, I might as well tell you all I’ve passed my Masters! Haven't been here for some time - hope everyone is doing well...

twisting in her leopard prints
like she’s seen some

Her Prisoner of War.

She keeps her albums in a cardboard box and her singles are left on the floor.

Maybe she’s a girl that doesn’t care but then, she always brushes her hair.

 

Her bedroom is full of things in carrier bags and empty cardboard boxes.

There’s a bank statement on the side from nineteen eighty five under a TV guide.

 

In the hallway there’s junk mail and unopened letters and th...

Our story has been told.

Your heart is a black hole,

                    It’s ice cold,

                      It’s so old,

  Please, break the mould.

I loved you then but now,

Now no way,

Never again,

You were the first love,

Now I really need a second.

Another draft, for your enjoyment...


Cutt and Pastels

 
Shifting through blues,
Sniffing at the cocaine
Resting on your shoulders
After another mile trawl
Through traffic.
 
More tassels than talent
A the knock-me-down
Cabaret, swilling glasses
Like tomorrow was
Just another Sunday,
 
Clearing up was a matter
Of four walls, ec...

Hymn both Ancient and Modern

Written on June 1st 2011 as an assignment based on the Calendar, set by John Cassidy for Bank Street Writers, Bolton.

 

O God of Sun, on Sunnandaeg,

I worship thee with spray -on bronze,

Because thy workload is quite big,

There’ll be a lot of wet week-ends.

 

God of the Moon, on Monandaeg,

I offer thee my hangover,

Last night I was a lunatic,

Oh I am deep...

I AM A WOMAN

entry picture

 

I walk in the street,

don’t feel my feet.

I don’t walk, I swim

like a swan on a slow stream.

All women are just like women

but I am a queen,

I am on the scene,

Of course, I am not of a model height,

just a little bit overweight,

but…I’ve got so much charm,

and it’s written on my palm.

Yes, I can be sometimes  furious,

and as a woman I can be...

A PARABLE ABOUT A REAL WOMAN

entry picture

There were six men in her life
And they all loved her, but...
Their love was so different.
The first one was very rich.
He loved her because she was beautiful.
He just wanted to have a doll,
To demonstrate her to everyone
And listen to everyones' saying:
"Wow! What a beauty you've got!"
So, she has left him.
The second one loved her because he loved sex
And all the time in...

No, I am not a beauty,

But I am simply cutey,

Someone says I am fluty

Hearing my voice.

No, I am not rude,

I just call things

By their proper names

And if you say my voice pings

I would better say it sings.

No, I am not ginger,

I am a golden grandeur,

And you see a danger

In my reddish hair,

It’s not fair my dear,

I am not a bushstranger

And you behave like a cr...

What do you wear Claire last thing at night?

Would you do it just for spite

Like you did to me last night

 

You know just the right things to say Claire

Yeah, you certainly have a way Claire
