maybe, I.J.

i want to marry you.
maybe we'll both wear dresses 
maybe Skyler will be our best man
maybe my family won't be invited
maybe Steve will walk me down the isle
maybe our color will be black
or blue
or dark red 
or a deep purple
maybe you'll have half your head shaved
and I'll have an arm covered in tattoos
maybe our first dance will be to an Incubus song
maybe to an Ed Sheeran song

The Company you Keep. The Girl You Don't.

I'm not the girl you marry.

 

I'm the girl

you have the affair with

after you are married.

when things get

stale.

 

I kiss you because I want to

not because it is routine

comfortable

expected

I kiss you because I want you

 

I suck you because

it needs

to be sucked

not because

it's Wednesday and it's date night

 

that is why you seek me ou...

An Englishman's Home

An Englishman’s Home

 

Our life together has fashioned some melancholic times,

While lies and absurd secrets threatening our connubial bond.

Misfortunes have conspired to smash down our familial castle

Yet the walls and foundation laid beneath them remain strong.

 

And through the haze of shadowed memory and retrospect

Some little lights grow bright like welcome stars at ni...

Innocent

Untried

The light of new possibilities

pressed down on time.

The girl sang to him "You can hear the boats go by". He

Love & Marriage

Hearing a Corella as it flies across grey skies, together.

Anticipating the squall, clearing showers of life.

Gutters flowing from Heaven to Earth,

giving birth to clean growth.

 

The sudden green as parched soil erupts with change.

A fresh day, sun rays, line of pinks or orange,

pale to a bright blue, herald the new;

promise of happiness to come.

LoveMarriageTogether

In the beginning

In the beginning he would wake at every peculiar sound that came from the babies crib 

In the beginning he would bring me a beverage as I fed his son whilst the moon was dimly lit 

In the beginning he would rush home from work eager to see the family he created 

In the beginning we were the people whom he could be himself and escape with 

In the beginning we were enough

He left

He left 

He left behind his broken wife and his scared son

He left

He left us cold, all alone with no one 

He left

 

The vows, they meant nothing 

The promises, broken 

I just wish we meant something 

More than just empty words spoken 

 

I cried for days at a time 

My young son wiped every tear 

Leaving us was a crime 

And now, it's been 1 year

Marry Or Divorce

If your shirt has no button
and your trousers are roughen, 
if your jacket is so crushed
and your carpet needs a brush, 
if you can’t find a clotheshorse
and all the time curse
There is only one way out: 
to marry or divorce.

That'll Cost You the Kettle

entry picture

They married young and grew apart, as people often do.

Future life for both of them will be with someone new.

The problem though, was cash so short

they could not move their home.

Until some savings could be made,

and low cost rents be found.

 

Circumstance demanded that

the bed must still be shared.

Things were tough, no time for fun,

except for weekend booze.

Your friends all wanna get with me, and I’m not really interested,

So I’m just gonna sit here with, my mind infatuated with you.

You’re the reason that I sleep so well, I’m sorry I can’t stop myself

I’m lost without the proper help trapped inside this hell missing you

 

Breathing was so easy when the dudes you met were sleezy

Now the quality is higher and you end up shining brigh...

"Marriage God's Gift"

With love for a woman man takes up his bride

Like God and His church for which He has died

He gives her his life to be by her side

To share his warm heart that's broken inside

He takes her hand and tell's her "I do"

And promises a love that's faithful and true

Just like the God that makes all things new

He holds them together like iron and glue

He gives her his life for bet...

They lay

as distant in their sleep

as cars upon the street

bums and bumpers

back to back

double parked

in a life

as empty

as the words

To win or to remedy?

Just to win an argument
Oft the couples
Resort to a heated debate.

For a change
They never tried
To remedy a challenge.

They have themselves to blame
For a solution begging problem.

THE BALLAD OF BOB THE BUN

entry picture

Our friend, Bob The Bun,

just loved to have fun

and exciting adventures galore,

he’d laugh all day

and jump and play

and roll around on the floor.

 

Its a very rare sight

to see a bun take flight

but one day he went flying so high,

he held onto a kite

by the tail, so he might

get to see the world from the sky.

 

Now, whilst he was high,

something low ca...

If You Don't Know Me By Now

you always hear them say this,
whenever they've survived some great natural disaster,
or a terrorist attack, or a nuclear explosion,
or even when they've won the bloody EuroMillions.
"it was just an ordinary morning;
no different from any other day."

Jean's husband had been up and about for thirty three minutes:
singing out of tune to Absolute Radio
and forgetting to rinse the shower.
thirty three wasted m...

Tony's Slip #twitterfiction

Part 1 - From Fifty to Freefall in Thirty Seconds


20 to 7 on a Tuesday eve & Tony's 10 minutes late. He checks his phone for the damage, slips it in his pocket & immediately forgets the time

He picks up the pace of a postman, swiping the sweat from his brow, & flashing several sheepish nods in the direction of his colleagues.

Typical of Tony's cack-handed attempts at cooking up a remedy for h...

THE ROSE

The Rose opened its heart petal by petal

unfolding its virtues to the naked eye

You opened your heart page by page

unfolding your virtues to my soul

   even sealing it with a loving kiss

   on that fateful day

 

It was only to last seven weeks

until your gun was pointed at my head

the double barrel between my eyes

you hated the concept of equality

slavery was your ...

Goodbye Girl

(I was trying to write something with that nursery ryhme rythym, something like Pippin Hill, and this is what came out, not quite what I was looking for but here goes . .)

 

Pretty girl, lovely girl,

won’t you marry me?

 

Together now, you and me

So happy we could be

 

Gorgeous girl, bonny girl

Only you can set me free

 

Sadly girl, madly girl

OUCH!

 

 

Ouch!

In my dream I listen to the best of Heart, Ann Wilson really rocking out. Who'll You Run To? and All I Wanna Do reminding me of my dear ex wife. Why do I dream of her? Is it to show me I have nothing now? No wife, no family, no house, no car, no job and no happiness? I can't describe how it affected me at 6am in the morning. A mental block provided by an angel protects me ...

An Unconventional Marriage

Who needs paper to declare what your heart can?

Who needs a ring in place of a loving hand?

Who needs the approval of government or God

when two consenting adults hold the key to true salvation?

 

Love is the salvation that unlocks our potential,

marriage merely confines it to one form.

But if I were to ever conform,

I would do it for you.

Something Old, Something New

entry picture

You send me back my wedding dress

20 years too late…

wrapped not in finest tissue

confetti tumbling from its folds

nor draped across a lover’s arms

regret pressed to every empty seam

not folded at all

but jammed like stinking gym shorts

into this case, too small

compressed, flattened

obligatory bow adrift

sad reminder of all that was.

no connecting(for Janet and all loud writers whom I love...without connection)

i like you all in cyber-space

not sure i'd like you to your face

in fact  i know i definitely not

would like you such a lot

IF

you came into my face without permission

invaded my space and pervaded my person

made me feel like a guest in my own

BECAUSE

mi casa no es su casa

my life is mine to lead

i do not sit in your place of authority
