Fruit filled centres

Love me tender
Render me
Less a fool

Give me more tools
Than this
empathic heart

Tearing every
Fucking nerve
Apart

To bits
And little
bitty pieces

Where life
Gets ever so messy
With unexpected
Twists
And turns

Curve balls
And stomach
Churns

Where I never
Actually learn

Because god help me
I love
And I love
And I love some more
And it ain’t gonna
Change

‘Cause
I’m not any different
Than I was before
Here at the gooey
Heart filled
Centre
Of my core

And to be honest
That’s why
Y’all
Love me too

The fight

My legs tremble
Hands shake
As I take
Another step

You’d think
It was a big
Decision

A milestone
Finally
Proudly
Conquered

Not the shaking
Of an everyday
Fight
To get out
Of bed

The fight

A murder follows me
Step for step
To my left
He picks
Remnants from
The filthy cement

From the right
She sings
Love songs
Of the ones
Long since gone

Black feathers
Turned to ashes

Flashes of colour
Behind me
As one dances
With puppets on strings

Brings me back
To reality
Amidst
This murder
Of crows

You expect me to understand
What your emotionally
supressed
Brain
Means

By pushing
And pulling
And squeezing

And thumping
Rapid beating heart
Wants me to believe

Beneath
The surface
And under the current
Of jealousy
And arrogance

Of youth
And wisdom
Under current
Of truth

Uncouth
And much too
Long in the
Tooth

Put up with
The ruthless
Where my soul must
Soothe
All the rough edges

And constant
Pledges
Of loyalty

New ages

Like Humpty Dumpty
I tumbled
Fumbled
Finally fell

All the kings
Horses
And all of his men
Tried to piece me
Back together again

So the doc
Sewed me back
Together
With candy cane
Stitches
And the best wishes

And now
Here I am
I’m born Again
Like a renaissance
Woman

Curves
And curiosity
And love
In all the right places

Just keep singing

Gentle notes
Breathe in
Then out

Where an exhausted
Mind
Would otherwise
Scream obscenities
Cried with ugly snot
Covered blotches

Splotches
Of ragged truths
Too brutal
To hold close
Any longer

Instead these
Softly lyrical soothes
Sayers

Slayers
Of words that otherwise
Would rip
Through silence

Trip across
This turgid tongue
Come undone
By fairytales
And faintly laced
Lies

Hogtied
By those vaguely
Quant
Ties that bind

Love languages
And poetry
That winds along
Every faint line
I drew in the sand

And I softly
Sing along
To the ballad
Ignoring these
Bitter voices
Inside my head
