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.

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...

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.

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.
