Hypochondria

Currently unpublished:

I woke up
Today
And there was something wrong
Something that wasn’t there yesterday
Something that just felt wrong
Something in my head

There’s a Hole In My Soul, dear Liza, dear Liza

There’s a hole in my soul, dear Liza, dear Liza,
There’s a hole in my soul, dear Liza, a hole.

Then fix it dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
Then fix it dear Henry, dear Henry, fix it.

Hide & Seek

Currently unpublished:

They say it isn’t everything
They might be right
You can be perfectly happy
By yourself
They say
But that’s not entirely true
It’s not how we were made
Not how we’re designed to perform

Sometimes They Come Back

Currently unpublished.

Life is full

Of surprises

Did you think I was just going to stop
At full
Give over
That’s crazy
When there are still
So many gaps
So many questions
So many things our minds
Are asking
Awake
Asleep
Aware
Or not

Attention 

From: Like A Tiny Sparrow Rising From The Ashes

Did I mention
I like attention
It’s an addiction
Or at least an affliction
But
Don’t we all
We all want another
To treat us like
Nobody else matters
Nobody else comes close
To us

The Red Kite
Will mate for life
Whereas the Mountain Hare
Will seek another
As soon as it finished
Impregnating
The last
Of the pack
It previously mounted

Miss You?

From: Like A Tiny Sparrow Rising From The Ashes

I used to miss you
Like a hole in the head
Like a hole in the heart
Like a hole in my soul
Just because
Because you weren’t there
When you were

My Enemy Turned Ally

From: Like A Tiny Sparrow Rising From The Ashes

I used to lie awake at night
With nothing but my thoughts
Goading me to despair
Leading me hand in sweating panicking pulling retracting hand
Into oblivion
Into sadness
Into anxious worlds
That only death held a hopeful
Illuminated green exit sign
Above the door to freedom
As the best way
As the only way
Or so I thought
Out of that mess

It’s Not Christmas But…

So I was making a coffee before work the other day and lifting up my mug whose delightful face should I see left by the water from its base but my old friend Jack.

Uncanny.

What a lovely start to my day.
