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

From: Like A Tiny Sparrow Rising From The Ashes

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

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

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…

Uncanny.

What a lovely start to my day.

Mind Your Own

So after running my own businesses and working freelance for many years and always having a business card in my wallet it feels weird now that I’m working for ‘the man’ and that I don’t readily have that outdated technology of a small square of paper to hand to people with my contact details instead of just bumping phones together or typing my number into someone else’s mobile as is the way now.

The Fight Is Real

From: Like A Tiny Sparrow Rising From The Ashes

Half of the humans
Are beautiful
Half of the humans
Are horrible
The fight is real
The fight is now
Half of the humans
Will help you
Half of the humans
Will hate you
The fight is real
This fight is now

“Tell us something we didn’t know!!” I hear you all cry.
