Portent

There’s no reprieve

For those who venture outside

As on All Hallows’ Eve

There’s nowhere to hide

The Raven

Those
piercing
eyes

That
matte
black
beak

I wonder
what
secrets
you
would
yield

If
only
you
could
speak

Vanity

Waiting
for the
rain to
stop

I don’t
want to
see another
drop

It
really
doesn’t
seem fair

For I’ve
spent so
long doing
my hair

Something Old / Something New

I wandered lonely as a cloud

Screaming the words fuck you out loud

As, like the night, she walked in beauty

I wished someone would just come along and shoot me

As I, in the wood, took the road less travelled

I sat and cried as my mind unravelled

And as we talked between the rooms

I closed my eyes and succumbed to the fumes

I Want More

I’ll no
longer
provide
a distraction

Or a
lens for
your
dissatisfaction

I should
command
much more
attention

For I
deserve
the utmost
adoration

Support

I can’t
stay,
she said,
I have
to go
back

It’s the
only way
to get my
life back
on track

I’ll come
with you,
he said,
you don’t
have to go
on your own

I’m here to
help you
through
so you’ll
never
be alone

I Don’t Care

Don’t
expect
me to
be shocked

Or to
go off
on one
half cocked

For I
know this
is where
it ends

And why
we can
no longer
be friends

Dreaming

Not only
did I
sleep
last night

I
also
dreamt
of you

I
woke
up
crying

With
my
insides
dying

Oh why
can’t my
dreams
come true?

Tight Lipped

I’m
not
trying
to be
mean

Or to
cause
yet
another
scene

So before
my fuse
is well
and truly
blown

Please
just piss
off and
leave me
alone

Afternoons

Once again
it’s that
time of day

Do I get
out of bed
or stay

Here all
afternoon
and wonder

Why our
hearts were
torn asunder

On Silent

Don’t bother
to call me

As I’ll just watch
the phone ring

I will not
answer to you

And I’ll never
tell you anything
