Run for your life!

Consider how you run,
What's at the destination?

Run the best race of your life
You only get to enter - once.

Sweet and Sour

She was a baby
that liked candy
so she took what she wanted

Her undernourished brain
starved her soul
she lived empty ever after...

Naked Truth

Discard the layers
and stand naked
in your truth

Listen and be heard
hiding nothing
bare your soul

Muddy Waters

It will come
the karmic time of reckoning

Sympathy will not keep you afloat
poetic justice will sink you

Sunday, 11 December 2016

Under Pressure

An escaped prisoner
always looking over their shoulder

Happiness and freedom
invaded by fear

Running to the light
while the dark closes in

Hunting Solo

Weep in the darkness
Weep in the light
Weep for your aching soul

Bravely pursue it,
grit your teeth

Hold On!

Heavy Artillery

You can either
bask in the love
or duck for cover

words are my weapon
and I'm trigger happy
and indiscriminate...

Saturday, 19 November 2016

Situation Vacant

I want to be warmed
by the light of your heart and brain,
feel fevered with love.

Don't give me the chills
by showing me a mind
that is scarier than a haunted house

True Intimacy

How can you 
search for love,
to be complete,
when you don't even 
give yourself a chance
to be truly loved
by someone that knows you

Universal Weathering

amongst the chaos
breathe through the pain

 storm clouds will part
you will stand in the sun

I Love to Hate You

You make it so easy
give me so many reasons
and just when I think
maybe you're not so bad
you dish up
a new serving 
of reasons 
to hate you 

Monday, 14 November 2016

Wiped Out

Like snot,
you need to be wiped out

You are unnecessary,
existing without reason

no amount of product
will cover it up...

Matching Potential

Will you fan the flames 
watch the little spark glowing
 tenderly guarding its light?

Or will you pour petrol
 over the innocent spark
 then run in fear, from what you've created..?

Got Milk?

Enjoy your milkshake
while sad mothers

in concentration camp like
and bobby calves cry...

Romantic Life...

There's a tendency 
to romanticise
the reality of other's lives.

seem to have it all,
but then

a diet of rats, birds or cat food,
and hideous self cleaning options
is pretty unappealing!

24 Carat Bitch

Like fake diamonds
you are simply
sparkles without purity

I prefer the cutting power
of the genuine article
my sparkle is blinding!

Paper Bag Quality

Like a fine cut of meat
wrapped in brown paper
 quality speaks for itself.

No matter how fine the textile,
draped in excellent jewellery,
spritzed with an aura of rich perfume,

Your personality makes it all look drab...

Unsatiated Hunger

Unless you are a Chef,
or a bad cook
who would really go to all the trouble?

I like a substantial meal
and I'm happy to cook my own,
if no one else will,
or pay for it...

Dismal Sun

On those days
the sun purposefully shines in my eyes,

The neighbour deliberately starts his noisy lawnmower,
and people laughing are annoyingly loud...

Window Dressing

You need only peek through the curtain
to see what's happening inside.

And you will see my friends
are in there with me.

Hard Labour

Did I have to claw my way out of my old skin
while running out of air underneath?

Did I have to feel like just maybe,
death was the easy option?

Did the tunnel have to have so many twists and turns,
that I had to carry on without seeing the light?

Faith in the strength of my spirit,
that kept labouring,

And knowing that nothing ever stays the same
is what delivered me.

Love Drunk

Their intense, crazed, connection
pulsed with desire between them

To others
it was a sober, repugnant display.

Sunday, 16 October 2016

In-cents Rage

All you need 
to keep you entertained
is the mere s-cent of money. 

Money will buy
your soul 
and your hole.

But wait there's more! 
You'll also get
my disgust and contempt- for free!

Hopelessly Devoted

Game, set and match!

He was a player,
she was a master manipulator.

In the end, they both won-
the prize that they deserved.

Contemptuous Familiarity

I struggle to make my face behave
when it's pointed in your direction,

It betrays my desire
to stifle my disgust.

I Talk, and I Know Things...

It's all a matter of perspective.
When all you know is all you know:

Learning opens the door
to realising what you don't know...

Wednesday, 12 October 2016

In My Opinion...

If you yell it louder
and screw your face up,

Point your finger,
laugh derisively

Everybody will understand
it's really only your opinion

That counts...

Get 'Real'

Like fake diamonds
your demeanor is unimpressive

You have the common feeling of trending fashion
and none of the quality,

of a genuine article,
of something to be treasured.

Fifty Shades of Shit...

Improving your image
would be like polishing a turd

Your fancy outsides
cannot disguise

The stench
leaking out from inside you.

Sunday, 9 October 2016

Celebrate Good Times...

Because celebrations,
are a meal to be shared by all.

Dine out on the joy,
feast on the happiness,

Drink it all in,
no one wants to go on a happiness diet.

Stark Reflections

Written words 
 hold more power than spoken

 Permanence, presses pause 
on honesty.

'Never write anything down 
that you wouldn't want others to see'

 Emptying thoughts onto paper
spilled like blue blood

Yearn to be read 
just not too deeply.

Smooth Moves

People who are starving to death
probably don't have time
to play with food
or worry about nutrients

Native Ambitions

Because if you want to enter
the cave of wonders
you must fight through the bush
to earn the prize.

Bodily Revolt

Like a stone in my shoe,
I cannot ignore your presence

Even my lips 
show their annoyance

and my eyes
prepare for abrasive invasion.

Fuck Off Mutt!

It takes a special kind of bitch
for me to bare teeth.

But your scent is overpowering
I know shit when I smell it.

Waves of Anger

Pay it forward
was meant for acts of kindness...

Grating Opinions

The sickening lurch inside
even my body objects
to your mouth's drivel.

Whether I fight back
really depends on the fact of your capability
to digest a reasonable argument.

Animal Mentality

 If you were part of 
a herd of wild animals
you'd be the first to get culled.

 This expert huntress
has surveyed the scene.
I'll leave you for the hyenas...
