Hi all, I am an aspiring poet, I find writing very therapeutic and I love capturing life's experiences in my poetry as well as fantasies and satires. I try to get involved as much as I can in the poetry community online and at different open mic events. I've recently participated in Cambridge open mic nights and also smaller gatherings in local libraries.


I am a contradiction My dreams and my reality You may mistake for fiction It is a lonely life being a liar What is the politics of it all? I will never know Instead I choose to drown In my own sorrow Do not tell me to lift my spirits Why should I, just to please you It is not you who lifts me From that cold floor at 3am It is not you who rescues me From yet another disaster So why should I comply I’ll just have some more of those Prescribed pills To calm down my thrills But doctor, doctor What am I to do? About those nightmares of mine No, I still cannot confirm What I am running from But, I woke again in that same cold sweat Actually, it is seeping through my clothes At this approximate second As I speak to you Will you fix me? Please stick my broken pieces back as one That is all I want To be wanted Your thoughts, to be the element of your thoughts But no, toss me aside I shall try not to mind Will you accompany me home? Make sure that I am safe You will never convince me That I am in the same league as your sanity That I matter as well Will you attempt to exempt me? Please try telling me it will be worth it in the end I feel a bit lost sometimes you see Although I do not expect you to pity But you do not care I cannot demand your attention As much as I’d like to I know it is not your fault As you have other things to do I just wish you would take the time To undo this rhyme And save me From myself

Abi, here it is, a lot is duplicated but it's a nice place to keep it tidier.
