Mutually Exclusive

Between your happiness

And mine

I’d pick my freedom

Everytime


Last In Line

If you continue to push this

She said

And I am forced to choose

You really should be prepared

She said

For the fact I won’t pick you

“Loved Up / Doved Up”

It was so much easier

Back then

As we fell in love

With our friends

Now don’t get me wrong

The drugs played a part

But we were also more open

To sharing our hearts


Love In The 90’s

No one could wear

A band t-shirt like you

With your longer hair

And grey cardigan too

That smile so shy

Those Doc Marten boots

It is no wonder why

We were in such cahoots

Dead To Me

It was definitely you

I saw tonight

And I’ll admit

I took great delight

In walking by

Without a care

Just a smug little smile

And my nose in the air

Arm in arm

With my actual friends

As they’re all I need

In the end


At A Glance

If it
was you
I saw
in that
doorway
tonight

I hope
my presence
gave
you a
fright

And you
realise
now
that
I’m
happy

And
that it’s
just you
I don’t
want
to see

“Stop breaking yourself down into bite sized pieces to serve others. Stay whole and let them choke.”

Obsequious

I kow you’re out there

Selling your story

Accepting sympathy

Basking in glory

But remember I know

Those who dance to your tune

All know, deep down,

The truth about you

Speak

I

the

That
you
created

Just Look Away

It’s not my fault

If you’re offended

By what I say or how I say it

It isn’t my job

To hide the truth

It’s my responsibility to display it

Don’t

Then
don’t

I

not

To

If you’re worried who’ll win

In the end

Then you absolutely needn’t be

For it may look like I haver

But I would wager

That she’s still far more troubled than me

I let
myself
down
today

When I
let you
inside
my head

I wish
I could
just let
you go

And
enjoy

Liberation

Best thing I ever did

Was to cut you dead

Not just out of my life

But also out of my head


Done

Fuck you,

And your pathetic little smile.

Fuck you,

And your supercilious bile.

Fuck you,

And your disingenuous chatter.

Fuck you,

For you no longer matter,

At all,

To me.

Peacetime

None of us won the battle

And certainly not the war

But my conscience has been

Squeaky fucking clean

Since showing you all the door


Acrimony

Whilst
trying
to fix
this
unconscionable
mess,
I’ve
realised
it’s all
fucking
pointless,
anyway.

Nobody wins.

You’ll Never See Me Again

The best thing that I ever did

Was my own fear to subdue

It may have took me a while

But nothing beats the smile

I now wear in spite of you


Soon

Life
has
been
so much
better
without
all your
bullshit
in it

Now
I know
for sure
that
I’ll soon
be removing
you
from
it

Weight Off Your Shoulders

I hope that now

You’re away from me

You are enjoying

Your life carefree

I hope you don’t

Think of me

For I’m standing tall

Just as I should be


The Burden

If
only
I knew
what to do

I
would
not be so
reliant on you

If
only
I knew
how to grieve

It
would be
so much easier
to let you leave

If
only
I knew
who to be

I’d
thank you
for your help
and set you free

A Day Reclaimed

When asked to describe

The best day of your life

I’m sure you’ve got many replies

When you got married,

The birth of your kids

Or some such equally befitting prize

Well I know that for me

It was when I chose to be free

And told those fuckers I’d never be back

And ever since that time

I’ve been on cloud nine

With no fear of that panic attack


Family Dinners

Can I be arsed with this?

No.

Do I still have to go?

Yes.

Fuck.

“We are going to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery because whilst others might free the body, none but ourselves can free the mind.”

“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery – air, mountains, trees, people. I thought: “This is what it is to be happy.”

― Sylvia Plath

Random #109

“The only difference as compared with the old, outspoken slavery is this, that the worker of today seems to be free because he is not sold once for all, but piecemeal by the day, the week, the year, and because no one owner sells him to another, but he is forced to sell himself in this way instead, being the slave of no particular person, but of the whole property-holding class.”

– Friedrich Engels

The Auld Hoose

They were the glory days

Although we didn’t know it then

Oh, how I’d love to go back

And do it all again

With you

A Mutual Feeling

You don’t like me

I don’t like you

So let’s just leave it at that

For anything else

Is irrelevant

You arrogant little twat

Freedom

I couldn’t care

Any less

If you cared

Any more

For nothing now

Can stop me

From walking

Out this door

Psychopathic

Looking through old photos

It’s only now I’m struck

By how much your eyes

Betray your lies

And your smile is fake as fuck

‘Glad All Over’

I’m glad you’ve had

A good few days

I’m glad they were

‘The best’

I am also glad

You were nowhere near me

For that alone

I am blessed

The Ballad Of Boxing Day

Is that it now

He said

Have the bells rung out?

I cannot eat another sprout

Oh shut your face

She said

All you’ve done is moan

You’ll be spending next year

On your fucking own

The Coup

If
I could
do it
over
again

I
would
change
everything

I’d
be who
I always
wanted
to be

And
I would
be the
king
