Parking metres 

Leave a comment

I got a message
That my parking
Is about to expire

And I panic
I have no other

To rest
This haphazard
Half crazy
But a little too sane
Truly erupting

This over
Frame of mind

State of chaos
Press rewind
But the buttons

And the message
Is clear
My times up
And I’m outta

Power of rain 

Leave a comment

Rain drops
Onto this dark head

Soak into
This thirsty soul

To be fed

No more lies
She whispers
So soft

Here with the rain
Rinse off
This clinging pain

And never
Allow it to seep
In again

Here in this world
Gone insane

Shine the light
Into the beauty
Of breast
And brain

And the rest
Let drip
Right on down

Real estate 

Leave a comment

Pristine square footage
Of white walls
Empty countertops
Wide open spaces

Devoid of the faces
That I see
In almost ten years
Of memories

The new covers
Once bright walls
And the fingerprints

The clutter
Cleared out
For someone new

Where once I felt safe
And happy
And secure

Like these walls
My heart feels
Wiped clean
Of all I was

Playing the victim

Leave a comment

I wish I could be strong

That you could see

You weren’t fully wrong

About what you see in me


You say what you want

Me to stop playing victim

Yet these things haunt

Evil continues to taunt


What you can’t see

Is the truth of me

The pressing fee

Weighing me down


Give up the truth

To save yourself

Put endless worries

Upon the shelf


And forget about

Unless it’s your turn

To scream and shout

As shame hotly burns


For living through hell

That’s back to tell

And I’d sell my soul

To make myself whole


Instead your problem

That you refuse to hear

Just move on you say

Despite horrifying fear
