Where are you taking me?.

Where are you taking me, sweet little elf Is it to someplace, I’d venture myself? Will it be gruesome, vile and revolting Alluringly bleak,  dark thoughts evoking. Could it be haunted,  by phantoms and ghosts Blood thirsty bats, to which we are hosts. What of lost souls, do they live there Are those their cries, […]

Can you keep a secret?.

What if I were to tell you a secret Could you be trusted to forever keep it? Could your discretion be counted upon Would you sit and listen for however long. Will you be tempted to unburden all Keep my sins stored poised to recall. I think I can trust you, I hope I’m correct […]

The kids went back to school!.

The kids went back to school today I’m very happy, what can I say. Seven long weeks, they’ve been at home Driving me past, my comfort zone. They tried my patience, tested my will I bit my nails, took a strong pill. We argued and fought, kissed and made up I poured more wine, took […]

My life story?.

What have you done with your life up till now? Could you answer that, if so tell me how. When I was born, I got the wrong list I’m a quick learner,  I soon got the gist. Do as you’re told, be seen but not heard Follow the crowd, be part of the herd. Be […]

Are fairies real?.

How do you know, that fairies aren’t real how do you know,  that goldfish can’t  feel?. Don’t you believe in ghosts and in ghouls don’t you believe in some of those fools?. I thought you knew Santa had a white beard I thought you knew Satan needs to be feared. Of course you’ve encountered heartbreak […]

I missed you today

I missed you today, as I always do I sat in the sun, and thought about you. I thought how unfair, this life can be how cruel, unforgiving, to take you from me. I needed you here, to show me the way I needed to hear, what you had to say. No one can gauge […]

An angel came to sit with me.

An angel came to sit with me she felt my abject misery she saw the tears I often shed she saw the turmoil in my head. The angel sat but did not speak she wiped a tear from my cheek her eyes were clear, bright and blue compassion, kindness both shone through. She took my […]

The day that my life changed.

The day that my life changed, was the day that she died, I understood then, what it meant to cry. The day that my life changed I couldn’t think straight, I wouldn’t accept, that this was her fate. The day that my life changed is etched on my brain, complete devastation, gut wrenching pain. The […]

I really needed to see you today.

I really needed, to see you today I really wanted, to hear what you’d say. And then it hit me, like it always does, the fact you reside now,  in heaven above. It’s just not the same, without you here everything’s blurred, nothing is clear. Yet again I question, why did you die yet again […]

M is for Madness.

M is for madness, M is for me surrounded by madness, it’s all I can see. I think it’s genetic, my family are mad My brother’s a psycho, then there’s my dad!. My sister starts howling, at every full moon and wears a fur coat, in the middle of June . My uncle’s in jail, […]
