Self-defence

I threw my words into

Empty rooms and boxes

Then gave each one a knife

Liable

Everything I achieved

Is part guilt

Part coffee

Completely screwed

Look at us

Brilliant, well adjusted

Light bulbs

Ever so smooth

Here

Bedside still

Soaking broken bones

I can go about my day

The headphones in my ears

Keep the thoughts at bay

They came from the ground

Looking for things rare

And found none

Longest night

I tore down the blinking lights

They’d been put to shame

By the police car’s

Target practice

We learned so fast

To hurt each other

As children do

To the Fools

I wish someone told me

Perfect is always

On time

Read and leave comments (1)

There lies bliss

A stray peeked through the window

So I fed it sweets and nothing

Just enough to keep it in

The mean spoke your name

Spikes of chance

Forgive themselves

In the noise

Drown the brakes

Our hearts beat so loud I

Can't hear my voice begging

For this to stop

So I scream

Summer is three months

Of getting sticky

Without the fun

She always made me think

There was nothing to be gained

By kissing looser lips

Please understand

Making sense

Out of waterfalls

Feeding drips

Random walk

Hold me before

I waste away leaving

Warmth to worm

To better see the stars

We are all in the gutter

But some of us

We stand upon

Forever hush

Life is like a chorus

Where the tone-deaf

Have to pretend

Read and leave comments (2)

Rainbow on the tongue

Some things taste better

Without a label, like fruit,

Prescriptions and people

Over fallow ground

I feel like jumping into puddles

While it's raining

Somewhere else

Thoughts and flayers

Ever want

To shed off your skin,

Hug someone raw?

On the rocks

Dawn will break to shatter

Dreams and fog alike

As your body did

Incense to Itches

Through brittle walls

Lonely minds crave

Another touch

Happy next year

Cheer up:

Every light's a firework

When you're shortsighted

Read and leave comments (2)

Surface tension

We cannot be held back

By our own desire

To grow old and know better

Razors do get dull

Sure, I would die for you

If only it wasn't

Such a hassle

Yearning downpour

I see the sky behind your eyes

So tall and yet

Just a shot away

Have a bite!

By time we're bound and shackled

But freedom tastes

Of salt and copper

Read and leave comments (1)

It's their fault, darling

We are made of starstuff

The kind that drifts apart

And grows cold

Read and leave comments (4)

Don't even blink

Inertia be damned.

Every time you look at me

It's been too long.
