A Women's Catharsis

I want to breathe

I want to cry

I want to live

I want to die

I want to stay out til' 7am

I want a boy that's heaven sent

I want a house

I want a car

I want to travel

But not too far

I want to laugh

I don't want to think

I want to pour myself a big fat drink

I want to dance

I want to fight

I want to see your face in morning light

I want to jump into t...

The Feminist Friend

Everyone’s having babies

Everything’s just turned up a whole notch of crazy

They must just think I’m lazy

But I too, could really love a baby

 

Makes me feel quite stupid

I’ve never had luck with cupid

Life doesn’t come with a blueprint

But really did for you, kid

 

Never been dripping in diamonds

Couldn’t find a man to afford them

And even if he offered

I’d ...

'I'm fine'

There is a river that runs through me

But I can’t see its colours shine so brightly

I keep them all so confidential

And all of the breakdowns so existential

‘Going mental’, the mind’s so fragile

 

Can’t it be easy like it was when we were kids?

You grow up, some days stare into the abyss

But there is nothing like true happiness

You must hold on to happiness

 

When ...

'Listening to Elvis, thinking it over'

I wish I knew what to say

I look for words

But they just escape me

 

I look for a sign, everyday

But the faith I feel, it fades away

 

Set the alarm, wake up and keep on going

But all the while, my tears are flowing

 

What about the love and joy that I felt in my heart?

Please don’t tell me we’re destined to depart?

 

Elvis’ dulcet tones, makes its way right ...

Fool's game

Fuck it, I will let myself fall

I'll allow my stupid heart to get broken

Hopefully you're worth it

If you're not, then perhaps I deserve it.

 

You could be everything

You could be nothing

You could be the highest of highs or the most epic of lows

You could be my ebb, you could be my flow

 

You could be just one night

You could be the love of my life!

You could b...

New love

My darling, sorry for the delayed reaction

but this time I feel it, electric attraction

 

Most days you're literally all I think of

somebody save me, for you I am odd 

 

Tell myself I will take it slow

that just ain't my style though

 

Whenever we say goodbye

I instantly dream all about the next time

 

You are fascinating, liberating, you're so intoxicating.

4AM

Lets talk and talk some more on your living room floor,

delibarating til' the clock hits four

 

Sweet tobacco scent,

your soul is up for rent

 

Our birthdays they fall in the same week,

I can feel the signs in the way you speak

 

I told you I'm crazy,

you told me you liked it

 

I knew you weren't lying.

Abolish anger (it's a wasted emotion)

So much beauty

so much anger

so much comfort

so much danger

so much hate

so much love

so much push

so much shove

so much warmth

so much cold

so very young

so very old

so much intelligence

so much ignorance

so much despair

so much bliss

I can feel it in your punch but I'd rather it a kiss.

This heart

Where the hell are you?

I've been waiting for what seems like my whole life

I can't get it out of my head

I thought by now I'd be someone's wife.

 

Nothing turned out how I thought it would

Is it for the best, for the greater good?

 

Why is the heart such a fragile thing?

With every rejection I feel the sting.

 

I look in the mirror but it ain't me looking back

My love

My love, I let you down

I promised I'd be there but started to drown

 

My love, I was in over my head

Why did we pass ships at night as we climbed into bed

 

My love, the only love for me

I just want to say sorry, I am so fucking sorry 

 

My love, I see your face everywhere

There's not one other face that could compare

 

My love, my beautiful friend

Boy

The first time I saw you I had to pour out my heart and drink it down.

Not like a poison but a love fuelled potion.

You have a beautiful persuasion, you have this magical notion.

 

I know that it's not just the view of the palm trees,

I can see it in everything you believe.

When you smile its so innocent and sweet,

It's such a cliche it knocks me off my feet,

I hold on hope...

As Winter looms

They tell you to try with all of your might,

But it's the things that you least expect stealing your sleep at night.

As we descend into the darkness of winter, my mind is lit up with thoughts on 5th November,

I look back, I remember you, I remember

.

Walking to Oxford Street all alone,

the people that pass by, they all seem like clones.

It's not long until they have somewhere ...

No Flowers on the Bridge

Life's a game of take & give 
Just tell me how did it come to this? 
They walked their way into the abyss 
But I see no flowers, on the bridge? 

The laughs, the screams  
The night, far from your dreams 
A city bows as it continues to live 
But I see no flowers, on the bridge?

The sirens call and the thunders rolls
In a stranger, solace unfolds
How can your story ever be told?
But n...

Blue Movie

It's better when I write things down, 
I can be more meticulous.
Then I remember you called me a child and said I was ridiculous. 

Perhaps you shouldn't have made yourself so inconspicuous, 
it could be said that we would not have got into 'this'.

You picked at the conversation and I gave my participation. 
I rather wish I hadn't for now I'm left anticipating. 

Did the Indian Ocean pi...

Love is......

Love is beauty,

Love is kind,

Love is another, that's on your mind.

 

Love is contentment,

Love it will flow,

Love is another, you long to know.

 

Love is a sacrifice, you knew you could make,

Love is the person, that lights up your day.

 

Love is the one that can make you laugh,

You're both fully aware, that neither can dance,

but you know when you're cold, ...

My Bedroom Floor

Some people are very bad sad and blind
they have no initative or know how to be kind
their presence knows no boundaries what so ever
leading people to the end of their tethers...

would it be okay to swap these chips in?
and ask god if he'd consider starting again.
I wonder what my first thought was
and how my first breath of air felt
I wonder why it was these cards that were delt.

Honesty

I have been involved with some parasites in my life.

fucking parasites

fucking witches

fucking narcissist bitches

 

twisted wretched ruined wrecks

what the heck?

oh what the heck?

 

If you don't like honesty remove yourself from me

it's all I know my go to....

 

I'm so sick of saying sorry

it really truly does quite bore me

I will roll over and shrug this ...
