This Next Wee While

If you
notice
that I’ve
gone

There’s
no need
to worry

Sometimes
I have
to run
away

From
situations
in a hurry

But I’ll
most
certainly
return

So please,
fret
ye not

I will be
coming
back very
soon

To reclaim
my top
spot

Obvious

In a
different
time

At a
different
place

The
answer
would
stare
us

Right
in the
face

Resilience

I’m glad
you see
her good
side

And can
block out
her bad

But I
have to
trust my
instinct

As it’s
all I’ve
ever had

The Vulture

I
don’t
mind

Leaving
your
bones
behind

But
I’ll
take
away
your
heart

For I
think
you’ll
find

Its
been a
while
since
I’ve
dined

On
meat
so
a la
carte

Every Friday Is Black

Fuck off
with your
‘One Day Only’
deals

The endless
emails and
pathetic
sales spiels

Think about
those already
in over
their head

And go hawk
your wares
somewhere
else instead

Silly Arguments

Fuck
this
shit

She
said

I’m
going
home

I’ll
walk
you

He
said

You
can’t
go alone

I
don’t
need
you

She
said

Why
don’t you
just drop
dead

You’ll be
sorry you
wished for
that

He
said

When
you’re
alone in
our bed

GameFace

All I do is let
people down

They want
me to smile

But I can
only frown

For I no longer
have the energy

To be the person
they want me to be

The Bargain

Who knows
when our
time will
come

But I fear
it’s not
just yet

For you
have to
forgive
yourself

And I
have to
forget

The News Nobody Wants

I hope it
all goes
well
today

I hope
with
all my
heart

I just
couldn’t
bear it
if you

Had to
live the
way I
now do

And for
your lives
to be torn
apart

Polaroid Memories

I can no
longer
look at
at your
face

My
eyes I
have to
sheathe

For
tears
begin
to flow
at pace

And I
can no
longer
breathe

Many A Moon

As that
day draws
ever closer

The pain
cannot be
avoided

To think
it was just
a year ago

When my
whole world
imploded

Sinderella

Is that
the time,
he said,
I should
get my
things
and leave

Well don’t
let me
keep you,
she said,
for I have
others
to please

Grandiose

I’ll always
be the
better
person

But
there’s
no need
to sweat it

I’ll
always
be hanging
around

To make
sure you
don’t
forget it

Poison

What
once
runneth
over

Is
now
empty

What
once
was
painless

Now
there’s
plenty

Forty Two

As cold as the sun,
As warm as the snow.

As loud as the silence,
As high as the low.

This could be
the meaning of life,

For all I fucking know.

Imprisoned

We
each
have a
choice

But it
seems
my hands
are tied

My
opinion
I cannot
voice

As my
rights
have been
denied

Poetry

Some pills
make it
better

Some
make it
worse

Sometimes
the only
solace

Resides
in written
verse

Self Loathing

I wish
I could
see in
myself,

She
said,

What you’ve
seen since
our affair
began.

For that
you’d need
to love
yourself,

He
said,

And I
don’t
think
you can.

Rhubarb

Searching
for
light

Raised
in
darkness

Our
numbers
grow

Despite
the
sparseness

Unfathomable Cruelty

Only I
know why
the caged
bird sings

It’s because
some bastard
clipped it’s
wings

Yet as the
tears rise
and the
anger stings

The bird
knows it’s
just one of
those things

Writing At Midnight

The
words
advance
in waves

Their
ferocity
I cannot
stop

But all
too soon
there’s
nothing left

As I’ve
wrung
out every
last drop

A Hollow Victory

I
suppose
that’s
the
end
of it

Now
all’s
been
said
and
done

I
hope
you
find
it was
worth it

Now
that
you
think
you’ve
won

Catching Up

It
was
so
good
to see
you

But
now
I’m
glad
you’ve
gone

You
remind
me too
much of
my life
before

And
what
has
since
gone
wrong

The Rescuer

We can
leave
together,

He
said,

I promise
I’ll look
after you.

When
will you
grow up,

She
said,

You poor
misguided
fool.

Doomed

Nothing
ever
seems
to work
out for
me

Perhaps
I’m
just
destined
to be
unhappy

To
forever
wander
around
wanting
more

Never
quite
accepting
I’m
already
done for

The Narcissist

Words
can
never do
justice

To the
utter
hatred
I feel

For all
the pain
you’ve
caused me

For these
wounds
that will
not heal

You are
just
utterly
contemptible

Truly
bitter
and
twisted

To try to
make amends
now is
lamentable

As from
now on
you never
existed

A Different Coat

I cried for
hours this
morning

I found your
notebook in
my pocket

Now I’ve
started to
read it

I don’t
know how
to stop it

United

If
you
stand
by
me

Then
I’ll
stand
by
you

For in
this
world
of
treachery

It’s
all
we
can
do

Liars

Let’s
all
raise
a glass

And
make a
drunken
toast

To all
those
cruel
bastards
out there

Who
claim
they
love us
the most

Achilles H(eel)

Lingering
on the
ocean floor

Lurking
in the
starkness

This is
where we
both belong

Hidden
amongst
the darkness

I Reckon I Could

I reckon
I could
manage
today

If I
could
see
your
face
again

I reckon
I could
find
a way

If I
could
hear
your
voice
again

I reckon
I could
try to
be okay

If I
could
hold
your
hand
again

I reckon
I could
probably
stay

If I
could
kiss
your
lips
again

Home Sweet Home

They say
you can
never go
home
again

And I’m
starting
to believe
that’s
true

For all
that resides
here now
is a world
of pain

And
far too
many
memories
of you

At A Glance

If it
was you
I saw
in that
doorway
tonight

I hope my
presence
gave you
such a
fright

That
perhaps
now you
realise
I’m as
happy as
can be

And
it’s just
you I no
longer
want
to see

Just Me

Life was
cruel to him

And people
were cruel too

It was only me
who was kind

Me who stuck by
him like glue

Planets

You
pulled
me into
your
orbit

And
then you
promptly
jumped ship

I will
never
forgive
you for
that

You
fucking
piece
of shit

Sick Of It All

I feel
so small
my skin
crawls
with the
itch of a
thousand
years
eyes
bawl
from the
pain
while
all the
time you
laugh
from
behind
the wall
ready to
hurl
your
next
curveball
my way

‘Some Sunny Day’

Maybe
one day
we’ll meet
again

But no one
knows
if that’s
true

So until
such time
as that day
may come

I’ll just
lie here
and dream
of you

In My Eyes

No one
sees
me as
anything
more

Than a
sad and
lonely
depressed
old bore

A pathetic
waste of
space for
sure

Just
another
nuisance
to ignore

The Reveal

You should
talk more,
he said,
open up
about
how you
feel

It’s not
possible,
she said,
for it’s
not my
secret to
reveal

The University of Life

I’m
learning
more and
more, day
by day.

Going to
lectures,
finding
my way.

Knowing
when to
work and
when to
play

Hoping
you’ll
be there,
on my
Graduation
Day.

The Asylum

I don’t
think
there’s
a way
out

I don’t
even
know
how I
got in

Perhaps
I should
just
scream
and shout

And
wait
for the
voices
to begin

Questions from The Other Side

How do you
want me to feel?

Guilty for trying?
Because I am not.

Guilty for crying?
Because I am not.

Guilty for lying?
Because I am not.

Guilty for dying?
Because I am not.

The Edge

I’m on
the cusp
of something new

But I
don’t know
quite what to do

I just can’t
decide what’s
false and what’s true

Or when
would be the
right time to tell you

Ignorant Bitch

I’ll always
be better
than you

Of that
there can
be no doubt

For you
really don’t
have a clue

How much
bullshit
you spout

One Year Ago

If I
just
don’t
think
about
it

Then
maybe
that
day
won’t
come

I’m
just
not
sure
I can
face it

When
all
is
said
and
done

Steadfast

I’ll never be
who you want
me to be

So you’ll
just have
to accept it

Please stop
trying to
change me

Or you’ll
just end up
rejected

Penance

You’ll probably never see me again

And I’m quite happy with that

As it’s the very least you deserve

For being such an obnoxious twat

A Messy Job

Why oh why
did I try
to paint
my nails
on a train?

Never will
I attempt
such a
ridiculous
thing again!

The Pits

Darkness
swirls
inside
the pit of
emptiness
as it
screams
and
sprawls
around
me

Perhaps
I should
take
heart
now
that the
pit of
loneliness
is
behind
me

Enjoy My Silence

I’ll
say
it was
my
fault

I’ll
take
all
the
blame

Just to
protect
you
and
yours

From
feeling
this
terrible
shame

But
don’t
think
it’ll
last

I
won’t
stay
quiet
forever

One day
I’ll
tell
the
truth

And
all
ties we
will
sever

Obviously Oblivious

Just
look
what
you’ve
done

She
said

You’ve
gone
and
broken
my
heart

Don’t
pretend
you
didn’t
know

He
said

That
this
would
happen
from
the
start

The Riverbank

It’s easy
for you to
pretend
nothing
is wrong

But
there’s
no way I
can
do it

Not after
all the
water that’s
gone under
the bridge

And how,
head first,
you
pushed
me in it
