Fun While It Lasted

It wasn’t that

I wanted to stop

But I was scared that we’d get caught

That’s why I knew

What I had to do

Even though it left us distraught


Condensation

As the
wind
rattles
the
window
pane

I
wonder
if it’s
cold
where
you are

Or are
you
now
just
over
heating

In
somebody
else’s
car

The Torrance Inn Champions 1998

It was the last round

Music, of course

When I’d already sunk a few

But it was my knowledge

Of old Liverpudlian Soul

That really pulled us through


The Pub Quiz

What was I saying?

What was I..?

Ach, don’t mind me,

I’m drunk.

*Hic*.

The Good Time Girl

If only I actually was

This little minx that I portray

I’d get my coat and hat

And without looking back

Go have myself a field day


Fuck Buddies

I
won’t

be
here,

For
when
you

Not

And

Innocence

Nothing prepares them

For what’s to come

The devastation

And then some

All I can say

As I watch them have fun

Is just be there for them

When they are done

As not

The Eclipse

It happened quite by accident

As when she left the tent that morning

There was no way she could have known

That a whole new era was dawning

But as they both sat drinking wine

With their connection forming

She began to realise, at last,

Her heart was capable of rewarming


The Lost (We)ekend

I
don’t
know how
we got here

But
here
we are
nonetheless

We
should
just make
the best of it

Before
we have

“Sylvia’s Sister”

Once again

My American friend

Proves his talent

Has no end

😊🖤

ART: M copyright 2022 Words: Little Charmer copyright 2020 Maybe I’ll drink until I’m sick Maybe I’ll dance like a prick Maybe I’ll smoke ten to the dozen Maybe I’ll put my head in the oven Either way one thing is true It has got fuck all to do with you

KERFUFFLE KOMICS: Sylvia’s Sister…

Here, Rub This

It seems her wish

Wasn’t his command

Nor was ensuring

Her needs were met

This became

Pretty obvious

When they went back

To bed


Three Wishes

She stops
and sighs
as he
implores
her to stay

But I don’t
think you can
help me,
she says,
turning away

He looks
and smiles
as he
reaches for
her hand

Just trust
me, he says,
your
wish is my
command

Why don’t you come over

He said

It’s just me and a group of my friends

That’s very kind of you to offer

She said

I get so lonely at weekends


I’d Only Stand in the Kitchen Anyway…

For the third night in a row there are people having a party, somewhere, along my street.

I can hear them talking and laughing in their garden.

I can smell their cigarette smoke through my open window.

I can hear the rattle of beer bottles as they are thrown into the recycle bin.

Music blares away until the early hours.

I’m so jealous sitting here, miserable and alone, night after night.

I mean, I can be fun too you know.

Well, kind of.

Melting

Don’t get me wrong

It’ll take much more

Than just a smile

For my heart to thaw

But until such time

It doesn’t mean

That we can’t have fun

In between


Your Smile

Even
though
my

Resides
in the
deep
freeze

Your
smile
has the
power

To make

Open To Interpretation

I’m not sure

If I meant this

In a playful way

Or not

Usually,

I would say I did

But back then

My humour

Was shot


Come Closer

I don’t bite.

Much.

A Repeat Performance

That being said

Given what happened in bed

One thing is certainly true

If I ever planned

To have a two night stand

It would most definitely be with you


In Beero Veritas

Who’d have thought

That we’d come to

Both half dead

And needing the loo

Perhaps we should

Have thought this through

Instead of getting drunk

And doing the do

For DIY

And those who simply are not

Who may have had fun

But were never as good as you thought

As real life hadn’t begun

But now I know what he means

Lockdown birthdays

Were no fun

Not for me

Or for anyone

This year I’ll make up

For being alone the last two

By spending the day

Having fun with you

it’s
because
I can’t

Or

‘Let Us Smile Each Chance We Get’

I lost that badge

Later that night

In a drunken haze

On Fleet Street

My arm was twisted

So the fun embargo lifted

And my fears, for once,

I managed to beat


Temple Bar

The hordes gather outside your hotel window.

Laughing,

Joking,

Having fun.

You wish you could be more like them.

Prettier,

Funnier,

More confident.

Instead you’re sitting in your room alone with the curtains drawn.

With nothing but your ‘I Hate People’ badge for company.

Blurred Lines

I was thinking about this

Just last night

How I am not always

Visually inspired

Have I such little imagination

Lack a formal education

Or is it just that new glasses

Are required?

An Outrageous Flirt

Back before

I was heart broken

And became

Such a misery

I was capable

Of having fun

Which I did,

Consistently

This is one

Of many stories

From when I was

The queen of frolicking

To think how I was then

Compared to now

Is quite simply

Astonishing

If I could roll back

The years

And talk

To a younger me

I would tell her

‘Don’t just pick one fella’

And keep living your life

Care free


A Love Quadrangle

It
should
be
me

Said
man
number
one

I’ve
been
here
from
the
start

It
should
be
me

Said
man
number
two

I’d
never
break
her
heart

It
should
be
me

Said
man
number
three

I
see
her
playful
side

Please,
stop
arguing

She
said

You
couldn’t
handle
me if
you
tried!

I Dreamt About Him Last Night

I dreamt about him last night

You know

For only the third time since he died

At least we had fun

In this one

And it was when I woke up I cried


A Heavenly Reunion

What

you
doing
here

He
said

I
told

not
to

I
couldn’t

No matter what

Problem you have

Or whatever the issue

May be

There isn’t anything

That can’t be fixed

There was anything else

But then you go

And confront me with
