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

Fucking Fluoxetine

I enjoyed my trip

Up to the heavens

Albeit for just

Those thirty seconds


One Night Only

This bed’s not big enough

For the both of us

So I’ll be the one to leave

We should just be glad

For the time we’ve had

And the little bit of reprieve

The Sudden Calmness

They were all hoping

The blues would fade

But they were unaware

My decision was made


Rope

I know
I can’t
do this
anymore

My soul
is heavy
and my
heart
is sore

I feel
the relief
in every
pore

As I walk
along
to the
hardware
store

We Haven’t Got All Day

You’ve had more

Than enough time now

To decide once and for all

What you need to do

Is just tell us now

So we can both prepare for the fall


On Tenterhooks

I really don’t care

If I win or lose

Either way around

I just wish you’d choose

It’ll Need Stitches

I can clean it with antiseptic

He said

And cover it with a plaster

It won’t make any difference

She said

It’s still a fucking disaster


Bleeding

It feels
like I’ve
been
robbed,
she said,

Of the
only
love
in my
life

This
pain
just
runs
so deep,
she sobbed,

As it
cuts
through me
like a
knife

Imperfectly Perfect

All those memories

Good and bad

Making me smile

Driving me mad

Yet lying here

It makes me sad

As we never knew

Quite what we had


The Old Days

Waking along
this empty street

Splashing puddles
with my feet

I remember when
we used to meet

And my broken heart
skips a beat

Trying

In vain

To feel alive

There’s one more

Mountain

Left to drive


Hometime

As the hurt starts to subside

And the pain begins to fade

I’m never too far

From the reminder

Grief is still the sharpest blade

At The Train Station

You felt it

As I did I

When we locked eyes

That day

Now you know it

As do I

And so,

I walked away


‘Guilt’s A Heavy Load’

Your
mouth
is full
of spite

She said

The
words
you use
are savage

It must
be so
hard for
you

She said

To carry
around
such
baggage

(High)lands Reprise

As I stand here

Taking snaps

Comparing them

To years past

I am struck

By the magnitude

Of how much I now

Love my solitude


(High)lands

Let us
roam
amongst
the
heather

Laugh
out loud 
betwixt
the
blether

Kiss
amidst
this
stormy
weather

Until
we
come
undone
together

Unlearning

Why do you still deny yourself

He said

You more than deserve some happiness

It’s like I’ll never be free

She said

From the memory of all the nastiness


Forbidden Love

Come
a little
closer,

He
said,

I want
to see
your
face.

Just
you
stay
away,

She
said,

I daren’t
risk
another
embrace.

Letting You Go

I really did love you, you know

I wish I’d told you so before

And now you’re gone

Nothing can be done

But to regret it

Forevermore

Ain’t Life Grand

We
only
really
reached
halfway

When
you
went
and
died
on me

Now
what
was
once
bright
is grey

As
I deal
with
life’s
debris

The View

Waves crash,
As memories smash,
Against the walls of my heart.

That we were once here,
Full of youthful cheer,
Just tears my soul apart.

Once Upon A Time

Another

And I
miss you
like mad

As through
rose tinted
glasses

I remember
what we had

The Death Of Me

The Death Of Me

Nearly twenty years together

And what do I have to show

Just a blackened heart

Now we’re three years apart

And sadness the status quo

Six Years Ago

Walk down the aisle with me?

She said

The bakery aisle, that is

I thought you were being serious

He said

And my heart just skipped a beat

Still

Thunder rolls

Lightning strikes

As grief still cuts me

Like a knife

Tu Me Manques

I just wish you were still here.

That’s it.

No flowery language.

No poetic licence.

I just wish you hadn’t died.

Simple.

Xxx.

To The Minute

There’s nothing
else to do

There’s nothing
else to say

For my love was
lost to me forever

One year
ago today

Your Last Breath

I
remember
like
it
was
yesterday

All
the
doctors
had
walked
away

And
it was
just
me
and
you

Holding
hands
in
that
hospital
room

Solace

Where is it you’re going

He asked

To the mountains

She replied

I need the peace and quiet

She said

To get through the day he died


This Next Wee While

If you
notice
that I’ve
gone

There is
no need
to worry

Sometimes
I have
to run
away

From
situations
in a hurry

But
do not
doubt my
return

Please,
fret
ye not

I will
be back
very
soon

To
fully
reclaim
my
spot

Screwed

If we’d had a plan

When all this began

Perhaps we could both advance

But as things are

We’ve gone too far

And now none of us

Stand a chance


Obvious

At a
different
time

In a
different
place

The
answer
would
stare
us

Right
in the
face

Kerfuffle Komics #6

“(Un)Importance”

Given the madness

Of our world today

These words have never been

More apt

And as M’s art shows

Our anxiety grows

As by all these things

We’re trapped

Kerfuffle Komics: (Un) Importance…

Fat Cats

It really isn’t a ‘bargain’

To buy when and what you’re told

It’s just a load of shit

Pushed by capitalists

Who revel in taking your dough


Every Friday Is Black

Fuck off
with your
‘limited’
deals

The endless
offers and
pathetic
sales spiels

Think about
those already
in over
their head

And go hawk
your wares
somewhere
else instead
