breasts

breasts

I like breasts in my infancy I didn’t get

To cling them, the mother was ill and I was sent

To home run by the salvation army.

I stretched my tiny arms up to touch them

But they hastily withdrew.

In my young years, I suckled man abrest

Some of them liked it.

I was never a pussy man for me it was just

A damp hole to discharge my desire.

Big bums are nice too esp...

RETREAT

 

 

This pale replica of status,

denied the the fame that was assumed,

has stretched the yarn to breaking point.

Disciples, carefully chosen,

carefully groomed

make their rehearsed response.

 

Inhibitions fall from grace

unnerving exhibitions

fill their space,

hurling banshee screams

at supremacy's retreat.

A demonstration of defience

Been asked to tell you my story

Of how I pampered Don, made him well

How he lapped up as patient my offerings

How I ran whenever he rang his bell

I hang by the door, wait his call

Mickey Cupples

It was a rain soaked afternoon in the early 80’s

me and a bunch of disgruntled grunts got bored

 

We lifted a bomb maker called Mickey Cupples

he was a gimp who’d blown himself up once too often

 

We just wanted to get out of the Belfast rain

an afternoon at the search cell in Long Kesh was always a good option

 

I sat with Mickey in the back of the pig I just stared at ...

Motherhood, A Poem About Mothers

A Mother's Day Poem for that Special Woman in your life. Enjoy!

Like Cheryl "Pepsi" Riley,

I will sing, "Thanks for My Child,"

to Heaven's Divine vast skies;

for the praises of my heart

flows within each verse I pen,

to etch the love that we share.

 

Being "Mother" is a gift-

not a luxury some claim;

children are precious-not pawns!

 

No matter where we maybe,

Thirty pieces of silver

paid for nothing but his own death

 

the ensuing trial, the washing of hands,

the twelve stations, the crucifixion

 

were, part of a journey of suffering

for the sake of love for mankind

 

but the tree, the rope

and the unspent coins of deceit

were I hope part of a journey

of treading a path to the darkest corner of hell.

THE MEANING OF BIRDSONG

THE MEANING OF BIRDSONG                                                       

Warm May morning, pink azaleas alight,

never been so bright before, so

fiery so soon after winter’s wake

(quite late this year). I toast my feet beneath

a dodging sun, soaking up essential D, and

settle on a garden seat to listen to what I

cannot see: a tree-top high cacophony

You made me feel like death was a better answer!

So tell me where your empathy is?
You're a nightmare I can't seem to get away from
I might be addicted to the abuse you give to me

Your love is like spoiled milk
I keep sipping because 
I like the taste of sickness
I bet you never thought I would be like this
You made me wish for death

A Fond Farewell !

A Fond Farewell ! 

 

For thirty, long years he’d delivered the post.

The community all knew Ben well. 

His retiring had come as a ‘shocker’ to most.

-  He’d be sorely missed. (You could tell!) 

 

And so, on the day of his very last shift, 

(where, really to no-one’s surprise) 

each household met Ben with a suitable gift.

Wrapped in ‘hugs’ and some ‘dewing-up’ eyes!

There were times of splendor, times of fun..

And the life still goes on...

Meeting and growing each day in love.. 
Yet now a silent song of melody fading off.
And the life still goes on....

I am listening to you, all of you.

I can hear your cries for help.

I am so in tune to your screeches that I have forgotten the static of my own.

I will tell you goodnight and silent my whimpers in order to keep your mind at peace.

It is me, it is us.

We bleed the most because we would rather be killed than kill.

The Wasp

She is dead already,

those eyes have murdered her.

They shut her inside jars,

scream their pain, projection.

She needs not to sting humans

but she is overwhelmed.

Searching for open windows,

A chance to kill herself.

Planet Earth

This Planet Earth of ours cries in pain.
Perhaps because we take her in vain.
Who's to say how long she'll keep
Sadly true, her wounds run deep
Where will the children of tomorrow be?
No animals, water or even a tree
Innocent animals we know and love
are going extinct - no hope from above
Contaminated waters - pollution and more
the damage is done straight down to the core

Confessions from a wonderland

Jezabiel, my dearest Jezabiel,
Oh the hell I feel when you are no longer around.
My world spins up side down and the wrong way round and I don't know which way to go.
Breathing is hard and thinking is painful and the memories ache deep inside my soul.

An Ode to The Puppeteers

Your marionettes, so nimble, so well known.
The show's real cool when that fat lady sings
Those moody blues to mellow toned trombones.
But tell us, who is it who pulls the strings?
The Quiz-Master with twinkling eyes, smiles sweet.
He tells us, we could win the million prize.
That honey coloured blond is baking cakes.
The treacle tart looks good enough to eat.

and better words to arraign each thought;

alas, Dunning-Kruger bars my way

buckling swash through my jaded mind's eye,

Void Brooding.

I wish the abyss would stop looking back at me.
I look in the mirror and I swear that's all I see.
Not a monster but a void I cant escape.
I was born with a heart but it seems mishaped.

Someday I swear I'm going to leave this place.
Find my way to the light that people praise.
But for now I think it's better if I hang my head.
Bite my tongue and drink until I just forget.

So close, yet, so far..
We stared at each other dumbstruck .

If beauty be a tingling taste of terror -

though round it one traced pain - the eyes

they spoke of - where the weight of ages lies.

You were always object lesson,
Never role model, and I only knew
I should never be like you.
Your death was early and tragic,
As expected, your last conscious
Moments spent reaching for the door
Of a home engulfed in flame.

Through tear-filled eyes,
Those who had nothing but
Criticism for you when alive
Expressed their own shock and
Grief with a final tinge of judgment.

Dancing shadows | The drunk and the priest |

Pride

Slated as such 

But not for much

A never ending battle

Do or die

Without a cry 

And no one there to tattle

If one day 

It come what may

Without so much a warning

Fight to defend

Until the end

Amidst the grief and mourning

For naught is fair

And none will care

With nothing more to folllow

So it may be

To never see 

Thee dawning of tomorrow

My shivering fingertips, quivering lips as what used to be my favorite,

falls white and blinding like loudness expressed in cold.

 

You are my warm days turned to exhaustion,

beating on me like anger and a sickness for home.
