The laugh

Of one not quite there

She lives in a world of untruths

With no care

For those she will hurt

It’s evident and clear

Her lies and manipulation

Change direction and steer

They told me to watch her

Why bring her to the fold

Because she is close

And mad and cold

So release her and give her

something to relish

Or am I being

Too forward and selfish

Softly softly

She speaks with words of daggers

Softly he weeps for her words of venom

A position of authority

What lies to get her there

Will now unravel

Like untidy hair

Your callous words of

Manipulation was read

Revelled in your thoughts

A mistake you bled

Patience my friend

Your undoing is near

And about time

Goodbye my fear..

Hopefully now the help you need is clear

Time on Earth

Should be all it promises

Sunshines and lollipops

Unicorns and horses

But listen while I spill a spool

Of loneliness and heartaches

Where trees Sway

Stairs are long

and winding

And sighs escape when they may

So jig it up

Drop a few, mix it if it pleases

The plan to plot

No sadness you want

So drop them as you need to…

Little by Little

You’re unraveling

Good to see

How you’re travelling

Shame the green eyed monster exists

Down in your soul

The dungeons the pits

There you’ve said it

Your soul your truth

The lies you are telling

Imagined and strewth

You slowly are peeling back every layer

The jealousy you’ve conjured

Away in your manger

Sadly you’ve now lost a friend whom was true

Whom smiled and listened and helped when you’re blue

But alas you’ll keep trying to pretend to be nice

I’ve now seen your bllsht the green and the moss

I miss

I miss the sun dancing across my face

Kissing my eyes whilst standing a top a hill

I miss the ocean breeze caressing my hair

Whilst my toes are digging into the grains of sandy beaches

I miss the wind circling beneath my nostrils as the leaves of a thick wooded

Area release the perfumes of eucalyptus trees

I miss the fires built within bluestone circles

Omitting their heat to keep strangers warm

I miss sleeping beneath the stars with only the moonlight

To guide us in wooded areas amongst the tall trees

But most of all I miss thee

During this lockdown and unprecedented times we will slowly

Die.

I miss feeling alive…. 💙

Tired

That tired feeling

Washing over my skin

The new normal

Has broken me in

The search is over

All stones up turned

Today I’m sober

My spirit is burned

All hope is lost

Can’t see you smile

The masks now block

So many vacant eyes

Stare back at me

Uncertain futures

People ready to flee

I woke up tired

And sore and blue

Tired of this sham

This world of new 💙

Twice

That rising ache reaching up wanting

To explode the hurt and pain

Caused by the words that bite and chew

Through the flesh and knawing

At the brittle bones that once were strong

Before the chemicals pumped into veins to stop the

Black mass wanting to overtake

The very matter and thousands of atoms that

Shaped her very being.

But twice the lump that threatened her

To spew forth was suppressed . Down deep

Pretending she didn’t hear the spiteful words

And carried on to create the friendly atmosphere

Unbeknownst to all she knows who lies

Who is deceitful and whom has used her. So quiet

And silent she’ll be. For silence will scream and then the

Sun will shine again and summer will light up the eyes

Hiding behind a veil of sadness engulfing her very

Spirit from lighting the very way needed to go on.

Time for me to Back off

Too many folks are angry and rough

You take my words my songs my tunes

The jealousy spawned from lions and bulls

It started with a twin you see

The blue you saw drew you to me

So an opportunity of lights was born

Anonymity or star you’re torn

Unfortunately they sought a dream

To get close to you To you through me

I’m happy to remain in the dark

My words you’ll see the sky a lark

Will sing to you when I am near

I’m always there you see my dear

Father echoes

Into the night

Listen softly to the rain

As it hits the tiled roof

Then sighs a deep sigh

Coming from deep within

The darkest of depths

Where only the lonely

Whom long for the

One thing they are supposed to

Do or Be or Love

Just love

Yet he dies alone

For Father’s voice still

Echoes and tells me to

Be still. Be quiet and listen

never let the sun hide behind you

Let it caress your face and

Know I’ll be there

I now sigh the deepest of sighs

And know that I too will die

Alone but for the suns kisses

To remind me we are all but one

Alone in our thoughts with a different sigh

A sigh of tired a sigh of love A sigh of loneliness

Enigma

You’re an enigma to me

One two three

Happy today

Cheerful and gay

Disappearing tomorrow

With all your sorrow

Finish these words

Flying like birds

Gather and nest

Sleep now just rest

Gather your strength

A long travel and send

Them all packing

They’re heavy and flacking

Here’s the spark you need

Inhale and breath

It’s only two weeks

If it’s freedom you seek

Go on just do it

You’re muse you won’t lose it
