In The Library

I guess I’ve always felt

That little bit better

When I’m in amongst

Those words and letters

Safe in my own

Little fantasy world

Where my peace and quiet

Is undisturbed


The Window Seat

There’s
people,
people,
everywhere

Dashing
around
without
a care

Or,
at least,
that’s how
it looks

When I
glance up
from behind
my books

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

Tickets Please

I wrote this one

On a train

Unhappy with life

Once again


Insides

Another grey sky.
Another bleak landscape.
Another version of me.
Looking out,
Looking in.

A Pig In Shit

Your comfort zone will kill you

Isn’t that what they say?

Well I say that is nonsense

As I’m happy living this way

Running On Empty

I am so tired

I want to go home

To sit in the quiet

All on my own

For I’ve had enough

Of this battle of wills

I just need some silence

To cure my ills

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

Xxx

This Next Wee While

If you
notice
that I’ve
gone

There’s
no need
to worry

Sometimes
I have
to run
away

From
situations
in a hurry

But I’ll
most
certainly
return

So please,
fret
ye not

I will be
coming
back very
soon

To reclaim
my top
spot

Enjoy My Silence

I’ll
say
it was
my
fault

I’ll
take
all
the
blame

Just to
protect
you
and
yours

From
feeling
this
terrible
shame

But
don’t
think
it’ll
last

I
won’t
stay
quiet
forever

One day
I’ll
tell
the
truth

And
all
ties we
will
sever

Hidden

There’s
so much
of me

You
never
see

So many
things
I do

That are
hidden
from view

I know you
won’t believe
it’s true

But it’s
my way of
protecting you

Down By The River

It’s so peaceful here.

Quiet. Serene.

If only the incessant chatter in my head would quieten down,

I might just be able to enjoy it.
