Well, can you feel it?’

“Some kill their love when they are young,
And some when they are old;
Some strangle with the hands of Lust,
Some with the hands of Gold:
The kindest use a knife, because
The dead so soon grow cold.”

– Oscar Wilde

You’ll Keep

I used to care

About the truth

That the world should know

About my abuse

But I’m a better person now

Than those liars and frauds

So I’ll happily stay quiet

About my in laws


The Silver Medal

This
was
hardly
a fair
fight

And
we
both
know
who
rightfully
won

Yet
I’ll
step
graciously
aside
for
you

As
one
day
the
truth
will
come

“And so, I checked all the registered historical facts
And I was shocked into shame to discover
How I’m the 18th pale descendant
Of some old queen or other”

‘Tis better to be lowly born,
And range with humble livers in content,
Than to be perked up in a glist’ring grief,
And wear a golden sorrow.’

If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again”

Talking shit about all my choices
You would think you’ve known me forever
Just because you know my name…’

Boys Don’t Cry – But I Did

‘Always So Lost In The Dark…’

It’s 10.15 on a Friday night and excitement builds all around.

Saturday Waits as the promise of Spidermen and Caterpillars abound.

Like all those Japanese Babies who tumbled through the gate,

I Burn for tales of Cagey Tigers, and dream of Dogs that Shake.

Then I am reminded, as I Move To The Beat,

Why you Imaginary Boys look good enough to eat.

I’m So Glad I Came. To be here On A Night Like This.

If only it could End with Just One (Strawberry) Kiss.

Yet out to The Edge Of The Green Sea I’m cast,

Wondering if this Lost and Lonely feeling will last.

“I know that’s what people say – you’ll get over it. I’d say it too. But I know it’s not true. Oh, you’ll be happy again, never fear. But you won’t forget. Every time you fall in love it will be because something in the man reminds you of him.”

Never knew quite what I had
Little darling if you hear me now
Never needed you so bad

To make a thousand matches
Only takes one match

Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television. Choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisurewear and matching luggage. Choose a three-piece suit on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up brats you spawned to replace yourselves. Choose your future.

Choose life.
