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

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.

Fit For It

I don’t want a boy

She said

With romantic ideals

I need a man

With balls of steel


The Rescuer

We can
leave
together,

He
said,

I promise
I’ll look
after you.

When
will you
grow up,

She
said,

You poor
misguided
fool.

D Minus

I’m going to have to leave

He said

But please know I tried my best

It’s no problem to me at all

She said

As you’d already failed the test


High Maintenance

I’m not looking for just anyone

For not just anyone will do

It’ll take someone superhuman

To survive what I’ll put them through

Accepting What I Cannot Change

If you’re talking about my arms

She said

Then the urge I could try to park

But if you mean my wit

She said

That’ll always be razor sharp


Spitting Distance

We
could
have
had
it
all

She
said

But
now
we’re
left
with
nothing

Maybe
we’d
have
been
okay

He

Had you
not been
so fucking
cutting

Hot And Bothered

I reckon I could melt it

He said

Just by using my hands for warmth

I’m pretty sure at this point

She said

You’d need at least a fucking blowtorch


The Ice Queen

One
touch

Is

I’ll
need
much

For

Tea, Milady?

You will feel much better

She said

After a drink and something to eat

There’s no point in feeding me up

She said

For I have accepted defeat


Little Miss Pitiful

Too busy to stop,

Too bored to stay.

Too broken to fight,

For yet another day.

Out In The Open

There,
she said,
I’ve
told my
truth

There
isn’t
any
more

Well
I am
glad
you
stayed,
he said,

As
that
wasn’t
boring
at all


Telling Tales

Why don’t
you stay
here
a while,
he said,
and have
a cup
of tea

But
I don’t
understand,
she said,
why would
you want
to talk
to me?

You’ve
got a tale
to tell,
he said,
and I
would
like to
hear
more

Well
you’ll
be sad
to find,
she said,
that I’m
just a
crashing
bore

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

From Each Perspective

I was just trying

He said

To force your hand

I never wanted to leave

I didn’t want to lose face

She said

Or wear my heart

On my sleeve

We just wish

They said

You’d told us the truth

Instead of making us believe

That you wanted to be with us

They said

When all that time

We were being decieved


Concequences

You said
you wanted
to leave

And I
didn’t ask
you to stay

So now
we lie to
someone else

And that’s
the price
we pay

‘Trouble Loves Me’

It would’ve saved a lot of time

She said

Had I walked away long ago

Oh please don’t kid yourself

She said

You’d still have lived a life of woe


‘Should I Stay Or Should I Go’

If
someone
told me
then

How all
this
would
end

I’d pack
a bag
and run
away

And not
even
bother

Picked Apart

The title says it all

She said

There’s nothing else to know

Sometimes there’s no big mystery

She said

It is just my truth on show


Bleak As Fuck

I
told you
a lie
yesterday

I said
I felt better
and that
I’m okay

When the
actual truth
is I hope
and pray

That I

Until the end of time


Digging For Gold

Kindness

My mind is too conflicted

I completely understand

She said

This day I predicted


All My Fault

If there was
another way
of dealing
with this shit

I wish
now that
I could’ve
chosen it

Then I
wouldn’t have
relied so
much on you

And your
heart wouldn’t
also be torn
in two

To think you’ll ever be free

Really is madness my friend

I woke

How much

The Trouble With Juniper

Nobody

the
trouble

On one

To keep

Modern medicine hasn’t helped

No pill or therapy

Then you’ve done the right thing

It said

By coming to talk to me


Witchcraft

I thought

it easier

But if
anything
it’s made
it worse

It seems
there is
nothing

To rid

You’re not even up for a fling?

I am absolutely sure

He said

I’m no longer ‘up’ for anything


A Solo Affair

I’m fine
by myself
without
all of

Just me
here
alone
in my

I don’t

As frankly
I never
really
liked it

You’re actually quite romantic

But therein lies the problem

I just can’t be arsed to persue it


When Lightning Strikes

It’s like

However long

Just accept he’s gone

Instead of moaning about being ignored


Hidden Harm

Offers like this are rarely made

With no strings attached

I only want
