Life is pure
Life is pure torture
Life is pure torture with you
Love is freedom
Love is freedom denied
Love is freedom denied by you
Hope is eternal
Hope is eternally gone
Hope is eternally gone in you
Death is coming
Death is coming fast
Death is coming fast for you.

(for the little girl who haunts my dreams still)
Not that you'd care, but
All that I wanted was to make you proud
But, I was too stupid
All you ever did was bring me down
I was your scar
Your permanent frown
I was your verbal punchbag
In your whiskey fuelled state
Never felt I was your child
Just a vessel for...

She spun and spun
And weaved a web
And at once impenetrable.
No one could see
The pedalling feet beneath
The turning of the many cogs
The machine whirring and wearing away inside of her.
Her past an ever present.
Her future already decided.
Fate was never to be on her side.
They'd seen to that.
They stole her innocence
Bitter was she.

Lick your fingers
Every last bit
Take the hardest hit
And let me watch
On the spot
Twist yourself in knots
I want the final drop
Collapse and shed
Until the last sparkle
Of my Queens head
Until the last glimmer
Of her glitter
You belong to me
I own your soul
That is how

Blackened eyes reflect the venom
That burned beneath your veins.
Acrid breaths, defend the lies
Of a life you soiled and stained
Conceited smile to manipulate a fool,
To bend and shatter the goodness.
Masquerading as Hope,
Disguised as love
Defiled the light to sadness
Left stumbling for air
Left needing a heart
Left broken, left consumed, left abandoned...

When you are left black and blue, And all he can do Is turn around in bed, And whisper 'so...

He took his wife
A punching bag
He is at liberty to hug
Or to blow up steam
By her hairs to drag.
As it may sound sad
He opted to project
A doting husband facade.
When she became vocal
To his parents
Who she called
Mom and dad
"We do not expect
Our well brought up
"We are afraid
The complaint is not
Plausible as he has
A cool head!" the...

The following is in reply to a private message to a fellow poet this morning who ending by saying...
..."I don't even know what poetry is! I just write the words in my head as I reflect on a life spent/misspent"...
###### I do exactly that.
In fact, I have written a few poems here that do say just that... Life is poetry mate.
Some of it is hard and challenging. WOL ...

I awake on a bed of roses,
Whose petals crunch like orphaned autumn leaves.
A ray of sunlight towards me approaches,
Dancing in the light are muddy speckles aplenty.
I can feel the air around me toy with my locks,
Which is as feeble as your grasp on my hand.
But I hold on
To you, this very second, this very moment.
The mere sight of you sugarcoats my disill...

into a tempestuous past
bruise after bruise
fragments of broken glass
sirens screeching suddenly
shattering the silence of night
is this the way it finishes
does life end for her tonight
Blood soaked fists
a demon in his eyes
this man she thought a friend
his constant stream of lies
her eyes begin to close
as her body becomes numb

Jealousy pokes at me
like a schoolyard bully,
as I scroll social media greetings
professing undying love,
to fathers here and above.
I can’t help but feel cheated
to not have a father’s love.
I cringe at the dissonance
between my children
and their father.
How can fate be so cruel,
to curse multiple generations
with dysfunctional fathers....

The journey of life
Others travel to be wise
On the way i met a girl
Blessed with a beautiful soul
'Friends' they used to describe
A bond we treasured alike
Cared, played, even shared
Except for her own voice
A radiant smile on her face
Succeeded to hide every trace
Careful not to loose the fascade
Tried to deceive but miserably failed
One day at her ho...

Taken - Poem by Marie
You took me just a child, you abused my trust saying that you loved me
I felt safe locked tight in the arms of you my lover, it was all a lie
Thinking we would be forever I was happy to make you happy in all ways
Little did I know I was a food for your ego a toy to play with, fire to fuel
I turned my back on my fame, and friends, and my so precious teenage years

agile mind dimmed by the drugs
they say shes a dopewhore; she fucks all the plugs
no one to care for her, shes losing her mind
but deep down inside theres a loving soul you'll find
scared of her shadow shes been badly abused
covered in makeup so you cant see that shes bruised
turned to the gang because it was the only thing left
but it wasnt what it seemed full of lies and ful...

That fateful day
I hear you coming up the stairs
The cause of all my hopes... and fears!
I know for certain what’s in store
My life ripped apart... and what for?
So many times, black and blue
Because the abuse, caused by you.
Sometimes scars left, never fade
Every mark you’ve ever made
Broken ribs, broken nose
God how many? Cos. Only God knows

You seeped into our lives
A rising damp
Destroying everything in your path.
Maybe that's unfair.
Destruction was what we knew best
And to be honest, I don't remember much of the early days.
You just appeared like an unwanted mould
Infecting every nook and cranny
Polluting the very air we breathed.
Buddy Holly boomed throughout
As you clenched your butt cheeks like a spastic baboon
