I Won’t Stay Quiet Forever

One day I

Will tell the world

And dance in the flames

As your name burns


My Lips Are Sealed

Don’t you worry

I’ll never tell

How much you hurt me

And put me through hell

But not to keep

Your good name intact

But more to ensure

You never come back

Faking It

Please don’t think,

Darling boy,

That you’re special

In any way

As you were not

The only one

Who saw to me

That day


Sinderella

Is that
really
the time,
he said,
I should
grab my
things
and leave

Well don’t
let me
keep you,
she said,
as I’ve
got others
to please

Vanilla

After all

That playful promise

It is time for me

To be brutally honest

I’m glad we tried it

In the sack

But I’m leaving now

And I won’t be back


Closing Time

If a
nod

Is as
good

As a
wink

Then
me
and
you

Should
get
that
drink

And
finally
put

This
flirtatious
thing

Between
us
both

To
bed

A Shared Experience

I thought it was just me

Back then

But now I know I’m just one of many

Death affects everyone

As we all feel loss, innately


Only You

With my
heart
in my
mouth

And my
head
in my
hands

It saddens
me to realise

That no one
understands

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


Sugar Coating

Don’t
want
the
truth?

Then
don’t
ask
me.

I
will
not
lie,

To
protect
your
sanity.

It Comes To Us All

Seriously

They said

Do you have to be so fucking dramatic

One day you will feel the same

She said

When you experience something as tragic


The Double Bed

It’s been so quiet

Since you left

All I hear

Is my own breath

As I lie here alone

And wait for death

Telling The Truth

Three years on

And although further forward

By the pain of his death

I am still tortured


At A Bedside, Desolate

There
is no
more
hope.

There
are no
more
dreams.

My life
continues
to fall apart
at the seams,

As I
lie here
thinking
of you.

And
wondering
what the fuck
I’m supposed
to do,

Now.

And Lots Of It

If love was all you needed

Then we’d all be happy as fuck

So it’s about time that we conceded

What you actually need is luck


Nowhere Near

I love you

You love me

If only that was enough

For us to be happy

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

Marry Me

Do you know what, fuck this shit

She said

I’ve had enough of being polite

I really think you’re it

She said

And not just for tonight


Unsaid

Wouldn’t
it save
all
this
fuss
and
bother

If we
were
just
honest
with
each
other?

Still A Fair Assessment

There’s nothing more to add to this

As there’s nothing more to say.

This may have been written,

Three years ago,

But it remains the truth today.


Two Sides

I lie
in your bed
and I lie
to your face.

I am a
public fraud
and a private
disgrace.

Honesty

I wrote this one

While hanging on

For a reply to a particular text

As I had shown it

I thought I’d blown it

And wasn’t sure what was next

As it was

It was just a pause

As you wrote back in earnest

And so then I knew

I still had you

And that my effort was worth it


Reassured

The relief
is palpable

My anxiety
is pacified

Our normality
is restored

Thank fuck
you replied

Just Your Average Poet

I have been here

Just over three years

With 2,500 posts to boot

So if you still don’t know

To expect a shit show

Then there’s nothing else I can do


Brutal Is My Middle Name

And honest

Is my first

Do not bother

Reading on

Without expecting

The worst

Why bother saying in person

When you can say in a text

You don’t want to get

Back together

It’s just that you want sex


You’ll Need To Do Better Than That

Don’t
get me
wrong or
anything

It was
nice
to hear
from
you

But
you’ve
done
nothing
at all
to make
me believe

That
your
intentions
are true

Pillow Thoughts

If only I’d been honest

Back then

And told him how I felt

I wouldn’t be lying

Here alone again

Ruing the blow I dealt


Pillow Talk

I’ll
never
be able
to give
you

Exactly
what
you
want

I can be
your
standby
fuck
buddy

But
never
your
confidant

Too Graphic

I have never set out

To offend

To hurt,

Or cause anyone displeasure

But I do understand

The words from my hand

Are too heavy for some to treasure


Dear Reader

Sometimes
my words
are so
savage

I even
surprise
myself

It’s like
the page
I must
ravage

With no
care at
all for
yourself

In Truth

I love how this one

Makes me sound

Like a player extraordinaire

When really I’d rather

Read a book

Than have my legs in the air


Bluntly

Do you believe in soulmates

He asked

As he lay back in the bed

No

She said, bluntly

Now can we just fuck instead

(Originally Posted 08.03.2021)

Putting It Bluntly

I’ll say

I felt better

In the end

But the honest truth

Is that

The only reason

I didn’t jump

That day

Is there’d be no one

To feed my cat

No Recriminations

You said

You didn’t want me

So I had no choice

But to move on

If you’d made it clear

How you held me dear

Then your feelings

I wouldn’t have forgone

Settle In

Tell me all about your life

He said

And what has happened to you

You’ll need to give me a minute

She said

To think all this shit through

‘You Should Have Come In Sooner’

If only I could tell you

But you wouldn’t understand

I don’t know how to open up

Or even if I can

Sharing how I feel with you

Would be difficult at best

So I will just keep trudging on

With my cards close to my chest

The List

There are skeletons in my closet

He said

But nothing complicated

That’s the problem with mine

She said

Most of them are naked
