La Vie En Tequila Rose

I went out a lot

In twenty nineteen

To live,

To laugh,

And to everything in-between


The Shot Glass

Drink,
drink,
and drink
again.

You know
that I’m
your only
friend.

Vive L’Hobbo!

Our dearest Hobbo

It’s impossible to show

Just how much we’ll surely miss thee

But until when

We may meet again

We’ll always have the ever ebullient Brie!

Novelty Keyrings

My friend had one

Etched with that quote

Back when I was a kid

I’m not sure if

She ever believed it

Half as much as I did


Cinderella, I Am Not

There’s no such
thing as happily
ever after

There is only
heartbreak
and disaster

What you see
in their films
is a lie

As life’s a
bitch and
then you die

It was you

Who kicked

This hornet’s nest

So don’t cry

Now you’ve

It’s
just
that I’ll

The work

Of my dear

American friend

I could not

More thoroughly

Recommend

Let’s Go Back Again

What the fuck is wrong with us
Said the spider to the fly
Why can’t we just stay in one spot?

To be honest I just follow you
Said the fly to the spider
As you’re the only friend I’ve got


Let’s Go Back

This was the wrong choice
Said the spider to the fly
I think we should return

I suppose you’re right
Said the fly to the spider
When will we ever fucking learn?

Let’s Go

Fuck this shit
Said the spider to the fly
I really cannot be arsed

I agree entirely
Said the fly to the spider
I’m done with this bloody farce

Keeping It Brief

It’s been ages since I’ve seen you

She said

How are you doing my friend?

Oh, things are fine with me

She said

Not wishing to offend


Distraction

Maybe I could see a friend

Or give them a call instead

It must be better than wrestling

With these demons in my head

She Started It

Neither of us won

The war you waged

Still it makes me smile

To think of you enraged


Stale (mate)

You
deserve
less

I
deserve
more

We’re
both
fucked
either
way

So
let’s
call
it a
draw

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

‘I’ll Be There For You’

Sometimes all you need

Is a shoulder on which to cry

Someone armed with tissues

To help wipe away your issues

Is enough to help you get by


Why Not

Come here

She implored

And sit with me

Let’s drink some wine

Watch shit TV

We can hold hands

And talk all night

Until our troubles

Are out of sight

What Little Charmers Are Made Of

I don’t just bitch and whine

She said

I can also be quite nice

That’s why you’re a friend of mine

He said

For both the sugar and the spice


Please Don’t Go

If
I can’t
speak
to you
anymore

Then
who
else is
going to
listen?

There’s
not
many
that
could
tolerate

My
incessant
whining
and
bitching

Pushing People Away

Sounds like I was sick of platitudes

Back when I wrote this one

Had enough of condescending attitudes

When all was said and done

Yet as I think about it now

I’d love to hear them again

But sympathy disappears

When it falls on deaf ears

And eventually you run out of friends


No Consolation

There’s
no
point
in
crying

Over
spilt
milk

God
loves
you
for
trying

Blah
blah
blah

Not Spoiling Things

Pretending I was fine

On that trip

Was just something

I needed to do

So I wiped my eyes

And stifled my cries

In the tent

Next door to you


Camping

The warmth of the sun on your face,

The anticipation of a road trip with friends,

The promise of tall tales around the campfire.

It’s the little things that bring the most joy.

Meaning It

You can call me anytime

He said

I’ll always be here for you

I’d love it if just once

She said

You made me feel that that was true


Calling It Quits

I should have trusted you

She said

And let you through the wall

I didn’t try hard enough

He said

In fact I didn’t really try at all

Dead To You

You will never stand

At my grave and weep

As you’ll never know

Where it is


Animosity

You can
keep your
feigned apology

For your
friendship
now means
nothing to me

I shall
live without
you merrily

Waiting for
the day
everyone
will see

Just how
wicked and
cruel you
can be

A Good Idea At The Time

If only we hadn’t done it

If only we’d just stayed friends

I would still have you

To help me through

And this wouldn’t be the end


Our (Companion)Ship Has Sailed

Time
was
you
would
comfort
me

And
things
would
be just
fine

But
now it’s
much
too late
for that

As
we
both
crossed
the line

I Am Now

I do not look

Over my shoulder

For I am brave

I am bolder

You will not beat me

Any longer

Because I am better

I am stronger


Yearning

Time passes

Like a dream

In my mind

As I remember

Everything

I’ve left behind

‘How You Doin’?’

A line once stolen

From a show on TV

Reworked and rewritten

Now belongs to me


Transgressions

In the beginning

I would always try

To be as honest as I could be

But in the end I fell

So far from the truth

That the line was a dot to me

(Originally Posted 19.04.2021)

So It Seems

It’s not just coping

With the grief

For your beloved one

Who dies

It is also dealing

With the loss

Of everyone else

You leave behind


True Colours

What
else
did
you
lose

She
asked

On
the
day
he
died?

All
the
love
and
respect

I
once
had
for
you

She
bitterly
replied

The Grudge Still Holds

We may not have spoken

For three years now

All since I cut you

Out of my life

But please believe me

When I say

That my anger

Still runs rife


Slow Clap

Well done you

Seriously

I really am

So pleased

That’s another

Innocent person

You have brought

To their knees

You’ve achieved

Legendary status

To that

We can all attest

For when it comes

To fucking people up

You really

Are the best

– Eeyore

Let It Burn

I have killed us

Once before

And I will happily

Do it again

For I am

No longer

In love with you

In fact

We’re not even friends

You Hypocrite

Look out for each other

That’s what you said

Be considerate and kind

Well you never did

When you left me for dead

Whilst I slowly lost my mind

The Blame Game

So who’s fault is it then

Yours or mine

Who was it that took this

Over the line?

Was it me

With my brutality

And supposed lack of rationality?

Or was it you

And your crew

With fuck all else with your time to do?

Either way it doesn’t matter

As the line has now been crossed

It’s just a shame that we’ll never know

Which one of us won or lost
