Poetry Blogs (2018, friendship)
They wake up.
I like to think that their minds are cracked
But only their skin can.
Train tracks of scabbed blood travel down their back,
Bite marks bubble beneath their bristles of hair,
Bruises burn from my beating fists,
Outlining a dot to dot,
All are clues of miniature protest,
But these they show off,
They rename them.
He says, they say, they sai...

Sorry buddy for what's gone on
If only you had actually known
How much that I sacrificed for you
And this friendship that I thought was true
I honestly stood by you always
I was the friend that would have stayed
But in the end it was you that betrayed
Me in the most hurtful of ways
We had a history that we kept a mystery
Because it wasn't knowledge that we wanted freed
Why is that a...

We support one another
Like roots do trees
Holding one another up
Whenever they should bleed
Our bonds become stronger day by day
As our anxieties slowly fade away
Even when people should try to collude
We won't be pitted against one another
And should I ever be forced to choose
I would pick those who support me like the roots
Of the trees that stand so tall, as you enable me to

Friends of old, friends of new
Friends who want to help you
Friends of penny, friends of wealth
Friends who're ill, friends of health
Friends of knowledge, friends of wisdom
Friends who are your support system
Friends of youth, friends of age
Friends who free you from your cage
Friends of love, friends of mutual hate
Friends who are early, friends who're late
Friends who are near, friend...

You may think that friendships will never last
That is, until you rekindle one from your past
Sometimes we disconnect as time goes by
But that isn't any cause to be sad or cry
If destiny and fate cross your paths once more
You will feel at home again, no longer sore
We leave finger prints on one another's souls
That keep us marked until we are grey and old
Time may hold many turns and cha...

A Wound That Never Heals
It hurts me
when a you shaped hole
appears in the cosmos,
where there is
an absence of colour,
where the sound
where the light
is masked by
dense grey mist.
I miss you
When it rains
a greasy rain,
when the cracked bell
when the planets

You're reaching out.
Hands to the sky,
Heavy heart beating.
Knees to the ground,
And the rain falls.
Peace couldn't be found,
So you put up these walls.
In an empty broken place,
Never a smile on your pained face...
And you let the darkness sink in,
When all you needed was ONE friend,
But time and time, over again,
No one was there for you in...

What do we have
at the end of our walk
just the smiles on our faces
and a pocketful of rain
I have learned from you all
I have laughed with you all
I have burned for you all
but always, always you'll be gone
What do we have
at the end of our walk
just the things we have shared
and a pocketful of rain
So grateful to have seen you
I'm honoured to have met you
indebted to your fr...

Fleeting is what friendship is
It is seldom that it lasts
The people who impact us the most
Are people we leave in the past
Benches, empty benches
Are what fill a lonely life
Once surrounded by joy
Lost now to heartache and strife
Footsteps trail up a road
And never return back
Because what drives us away
Is a bond beginning to crack
Remember me, ...

Take care too, Friend.
There are times I want
to hide from the sun too,
so I at least know how
that part feels like.
there's so little sun
here anyway that even
walking about in the
fresh air seems like a
being under a rock
I never not wanted
to be your friend,
ma'am and I hope
we can put this

Our friendship is like the sky
It is cold and unbearable
It is stormy and full of tears
It lashes like lightning
Then it hurts us both
But just like the sky
It will always clear up
It will always be warm and bright
It will always remain blue and sunny
Because no matter
How many storms pass through,
How many lightning blades strike,
No matter how ma...

You're so annoying
And so distasteful
You won't stop talking
I hate you very much
When the rain has finally come
You'll sparkle like the sun
And when I'm working
You'll go…right ahead and call me
You drive me crazy
I think I've gone insane
I just want to be lazy
But you'll drag me out to play
People say I ain't perfect
But you'll ...

In Elbow Yard the walls are thin
between this world and the next.
We communicate through clairvoyants
because we couldn’t handle text.
But that’s all right mate,
that’s pretty cool,
you didn’t like clowns
and I’m the fool.
In Elbow Yard the darkness reigns
and death dances out of sight
ready to drag us to his ballroom,
illuminated in pale g...

we walked the ancient path together
where ancestors had worn the land
into a waypoint to the barrow
carefully observing rituals and customs
under azure skies we stumbled on our way
across this land of Albion
the hops the wheat the barley
bowing heads in solemn recognition
of the passing of souls
as we walked we talked of many things

I came across with a dead rose.
How impure and crooked it seemed.
Deteriorated without the life it once had.
I kept walking with it, holding it with my right hand.
How sad it was to see a rose like that.
Where once it was bright red,
now it’s only a brown looking thing with nothing left.
I kept walking with the dead rose,
a sad rose with no thorns.
Until the path ended i...

Friday night we walked along the beach
talking over a static sea
through all we wearily witnessed this year
still we speak in riddles
the way men often can
it only gets harder as you get older
weighted with expectation
You didn't turn to face me
kept your eyes fixed on the horizon
said 'she's pregnant'
with a pregnant smile
Black boots kicking stones across wet sand
choking out cong...
