Fight Club

Who do you
think you are?

You malicious
little cow

This time you’ve
gone too far

Surely no one will
believe you now

À La Kerouac

Back on
the road
again

Travelling
all alone

I’m not
stopping
this time

Until I
find a
place to
call home

Bored

You
have
got
that
look
again
in
your
eye

The
one
that
says
you
can’t
wait
to say
goodbye

Self Help

Why
do you
write
these
poems

He
said

If
you’re
not
going
to show
everyone?

Because
these
words
are
my life

She
said

They
are
not
for
just
anyone

Mum Knows Best

Why
didn’t
you
follow
your
dreams?

She
said

Using
your
good
humour
and wit

Now
you’ve
got no
choice

She
said

But
to put
up with
his
bullshit

The Trial

You don’t
have to
prove
anything

He said

Least
of all
to me

But I
need to
prove it
to myself

She said

Otherwise
I’ll never
be free

Hindsight

If I
could
go back
to that
night

Knowing
what
I
now
know

I would
hold you
in my
arms so
tight

And
never
let
you
go

Xxx

Well, You Asked…

Even
though
I find
your
writing
talent
genuinely
quite
considerable

Reading
your
words
over and
over again
really
does just
make me
miserable

999

God
knows
why I
didn’t
wake up
dead

Or why
I didn’t
think
to plan
this far
ahead

The Writer’s Anguish

I don’t
think
I have
anything
to say

Today

Perhaps
there
will be
more
sorrow

Tomorrow

So I
will
wait to
pick up
my pen

Then

For I
fear I
wouldn’t
even
know how

Now

Headstrong

You
can
stay

Or you
can
leave

I
really
don’t
give
a fuck

As
from
now on

I’ll
rely on
no one

And
make
my own
bloody
luck

Independence

Looking
into the
void

Lives
destroyed

But we
will never
give in

Minds
annoyed

Hearts
unemployed

Yet hopeful
we can
still win

I Can’t Do This

We’re
no
nearer
to
being
together

And
it’s
tearing
me
apart

I’m
starting
to think
that I’m
just not
cut out

For
such
complicated
affairs
of the
heart

Story Time

You don’t
laugh much
do you

He
said

I’ve hardly
ever seen
you smile

Perhaps
you might
understand

She
said

If you
sit with
me awhile

If I’m Honest

I
expected
better
from
you

I
thought
you at
least had
a backbone

I guess
you’ve
got more
to lose
than me

If
you had
to go
through
life alone

Cardiac Arrest

My heart
has been
aching
all day

Nothing
has made
the pain
go away

Perhaps
this will
finally be
the end

And I’ll
no longer
have to
pretend

‘Hand In Glove’

Some days
your hand
fits
perfectly
in mine

Our love
flows freely
and
sparkles
like wine

Some days
I can’t
bear
to hold
your hand

For reasons,
sadly,
you could
never
understand

Until Someone Loses An Eye

What
happens
when the
laughter
stops

When
that
penny
finally
drops

When we
wake up
tomorrow
with a
raging
hangover

And that
stomach
churning
guilt
takes
over

Nice Try

Thank
you
for the
offer

But I
really
must
say no

There is
no need
for you
to listen

To any
more of
my tales
of woe

With Me

Your
words
tattooed
on my
brain

Forever

Reminders
of how
we faced
that
pain

Together

Coffee Dates

We
should
do this
more
often

She
said

You
really
are so
sweet

I
love
it when
you
soften

He
said

It
makes
me feel
complete

Tooth And Nail

I don’t care
who you are

Or if you think
you’re right

You will not get
the best of me

For I’ll never
give up this fight

I Wish I Could

I wish
I could
have made
you better

I wish
I could
have made
it go away

I wish
I could
have taken
the pressure

I wish
I could
have made
you stay

Mixed Race

I did
everything
I could
to fit in

But yet
I was
still an
outcast

Neither
side
understood
me

The gulf
between
the two
too vast

RSV P(iss Off)

What are you
inviting me for?

After all
this time

I was sure you
had eradicated me

From the
family line

Well, let me save
you the bother

I wouldn’t even
want to come

Not unless I’d
get two free shots

With a fucking
sawn off shot gun

Library Books

I read,
read
and
read it
again

Hoping
the
fairy
tale
never
ends

But
deep
down
I know
we’re
both
fucked

So I
set my
course
to self
destruct

Shouting Skywards

Life is
just so
cruel
at times

It
makes
me want
to shout

For if
there is
a God
up there

What the
fuck is
all this
about?!

Literally

Last night
I dreamt

That somebody
hugged me

It was the best
night’s sleep

I’ve had
in months

Teardrops

I’d give
anything
to have
you back

To
hold
you
close

To
pull
you
near

To
never
shed
another
tear

But I
know
now
that
will
never
happen

For I’m
destined
to live
a life
without
such
passion

The Loan

I’ve
never
felt
relief
like it

To have
something
go right
despite it
looking like
it was
all over

Now I
must try
hard to
make it
count

For who
knows
when,
yet
again,
that debt
will mount
