“Watering down your pain so others feel less guilty is not being the ‘bigger person’.

It’s suppression. And it’s wrong.”

– Anon

A Pathetic Attempt

Introspection

Only works

If you can see it through

And as we both know

You’ve done fuck all to show

Any desire in wanting to


Introspection Anyone?

Maybe if you

Could just look

Look inside your heart

For a minute

You would see

What you did to me

Was a heinous crime

To commit

It would be really helpful

She said

If you took it down a notch

It’s not like I’m asking for approval

She said

Or for you to fucking watch

Blushes

Well we sat at the kitchen table

Nervously eating toast

Feeling a little unstable

But both thouroughly engrossed


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 us
both over

Deluded

It doesn’t matter

What I say

It makes no difference

What I do

You will always believe

Your own bullshit

Despite it obviously

Being untrue


Exhausting

There
must be
a way
to make
you see

You’re
lying to
yourself
as much
as me

Crying Is Definitely For Me

“Raindrops keep falling on my head”

As that old sentimentalist croons

Well for me,

It’s not just raindrops

It’s a slew of fucking monsoons


Left Guessing

Time moves on

Yet I’m stood still

Fading away

Losing the will

As each second

Passes me by

I can’t seem to forget

Or stop asking why

Talking Too Much

I feel I should

Apologise again

For burdening you

Last night

I understand

It’s not your problem

And I know

It’s not your fight


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

Fooling No One

I really am sorry my friend

He said

But I can’t do much with that

The only thing I could recommend

He said

Is that you start wearing a hat

It’s such a shame to see

He said

They just never stood a chance

It’s their own fucking fault

He said

For ever believing in romance


In Loving Memory

The girl you knew is gone

She said

Killed by love itself

You don’t need to tell me

He said

For I dug her grave myself

Defiant

It may have been me

Who was the one

That was strong enough

For two

But the person I was

The most proud of

In the end

Was you

With Me

Your
words
tattooed
on my

Forever

A reminder
of facing

pain

Together

Mightier Than Swords

A face you wouldn’t tire

Of thumping

With such a countenance

You’ve been cursed

But such a thing

Would be unbecoming

So instead

I’ll use my words


Pulling No Punches

Come for me again

My friend

And events will turn apace

Your head will spin

As that shit eating grin

Is wiped right off your face

Diluted

She who was once vivacious

Grew ever weary from the pain

And though she remained flirtatious

She never truly loved again

Gruesome

I’m a little surprised

I wrote this

As it’s quite lyrical

For me

That is, of course,

If you ignore

The creepy imagery


How Long Has It Been Now?

From this cold embittered heart

I just cannot be prised apart

Like a leech feasting on a wound

Oh, is there any hope for me

From the past to be set free

And to love again become more attuned?

🖤

Having mulled this idea over

To a ridiculous degree

I have decided I will

In twenty twenty three


To Publish Or Not To Publish…

You really are quite brilliant

They said

Perhaps you should write a book

I doubt anyone would buy it

She said

Knowing my fucking luck

Asking For It

You have to accept

When you eat your friends

That they’re pretty adept

At taking revenge

Sweating again

And feeling sick

Ramifications

I kept true to my promise

Just like I said I would

Now let’s both be honest

You fucking hate spinsterhood


Once And For All

Tell me you don’t want me

And I’ll walk away if I must

But just make sure

Your heart can endure

As you won’t see me again

For dust

(Originally Posted 15.01.2021)

Empty Threats

Obviously I’m speaking

Metaphorically, of course

I wouldn’t want to hurt you

With any kind of violent force

But I don’t want to come to your party

I’ve no interest in being your friend

I just hoped you’d realise

That you’re so thouroughly despised

I never want to see you again


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

Saying It With A Song

I know that you

Will understand

When the play button

You press

As the songs I’ve picked

My love for you depict

In ways I

Could ever express


Mix Tapes

You could just say how you feel

He said

Instead of sending me a song

But these folks are professionals

She said

And I’d only get it wrong

There’s no point explaining

What this one means

As I’d never get it right

But suffice it to say

I was blown away

By how I felt that night

Inexplicable

The evidence

Not even twelve hours

Between night shifts

I don’t get paid

Enough for this shit


Running On Empty

I am so tired

I want to go home

To sit in the quiet

All on my own

For I’ve had enough

Of this battle of wills

I just need some silence

To cure my ills

I’d rather just sit

Does the milk go in

First or last

And does it

Really matter

It tastes the same anyway

At the end of the day

But for me,

It’s always the latter
