(NoPoo 220)  Distorted

fear, heavy on my mind
thoughts, distorted
by chemical imbalances
inagination building pathways .
to darker worlds .

nightmares tweaked, refined
given licence destroying
the bridges of sanity
running around, memories burning
leaving ashes far behibd

this darkness is getting colder
Icy veins feeling numb
innocence no longer alive
death has such bittersweet complications .

Rested

memories of wishes
to dance on a moonlit beach
swaying to the sounds
of incessant waves
feet twinkling in the light

stars above
as scattered disco lights
soft sighing melody
lighting our dance
tracing footsteps on sand

rested on your shoulder
my weary head

(NoPoo 223) Panic

Panic attacks
Feeling so exposed
Reason seems far away
Like a spot on the sun
Just visible

Difficulty breathing
World is spinning
Senses are dizzy
Flashes before naked eyes
Brings more unfounded fears

Hallucinations pepper sanity
Inconsiderate anomalies burning
Falling into dark voids
With fearful thoughts
Weapping tightly around me

Yellow courgettes

She’s crowning
again

gold trumpets
peeking through
the green

and
I watch
enchanted—

thinking of the tenacity
these plants display,
pushing their roots
through shit and fury

softening themselves
above the surface

all
tendrils
and lace vines.

There’s part of me
that can’t stop
thinking about her

out under
star-shine

bursting with fire

her halos
nourishing silently
long after dark.

Glory

what is glory ,
for me to go
will my sleep be deep
and my dreams long
will lovers be spurned
by another before the other
will broken promises
be mended and made right  
when I say goodnight
for the last  time
will I wake up
to see your face

swelt


go ahead
 
steal my  
money
 
it won't be  
my palms
burning,
 
you forget
how people  
like me can
survive on  
nothing
 
work  
ourselves
until we  
grind into
bones,
 
how  
greed only  
torments  
unkind  
wrists
 
ones  
fit like  
yours.

Aspersion.


'Tis densely rife  
of once stalwart breath  
heaviness
weighs upon thorny plunder  
 
Thine own hand—
perchance spun of golden fate,  
tied and earthbound— in verity of;  
 
O'Ye hearts of thieving stardust
 
Thou art cast of iwis stone  
and found lesser by jade(d) scruple
Aye, frozen just, to one's own sin  
deepest thereinto
 
Such lies the crux, herein;
the marrow of the marrow
precarious, thee skirt'd twattle
tempted soft in lesser laud  
as soothfast whisper's calms the air  
 
slowly rising, defined beats asunder;  
bleak in part is hollow  
parted thereto in sorrow
flares obvious 'tis dark intent  
 
still, I reign of fullest mighty
where thine own soul—
glows in esurient soulfulness  
and blinded righteous,
those beastly eynes
 
kindly, from first thy purpose  
beseeched pure,  
my wings
betwixt valor and virtue  
So fair,
thine ardent
streaming
colors–  
streaked
of all and every violet promise

(NoPoo 224) Walking Home

Last night bus long gone
Walking on cold wet cobble stones
Morning creeping up slowly
World waking to my lonely trek home
Freezing snow flakes falling

Old buildings shadow the path
Heritage built in stone
Traditions kept alive for tourists
Living breathing history taken seriously
Nothing interesting ever really dies

dubiousness

Harsh, is the residue of doubt
Sticky and corrosive
How it seeps so deeply
Inching into a subconscious
Affects that linger—
to twist and furl
Entangling thoughts
Darkening a souls luster
Ensnarling a heart
Squeezing surety's essence
as confidence wanes
with every strangled beat
Weakening a resolve
Questions are left unasked
and answers left devoid


unknown,
in all the probing uncertainty

The thirty-something blues

…ever get that pain

the “I’ve been standing all day
and my heels feel like
a smashed lasagne”

foot pain

the type that
throbs like arseholes
as you climb into bed,
pulling the sacred
cotton covers over
your head

trying to think of a day
that your back hasn’t
hurt since you ticked
over thirty, how
they never warned you
of this shit at school

and I’m
not saying I mind
a good days work
but my body, well—
it fucking hurts

and I think often
how nice it must be
to just rest

to not count bone-clicks
and missing blood cells
echoing in my chest.

(NoPoo 225) No Ripples

no affect on reality
whatever ripple effect there is
designed not to register
undetected utterences
just delivers silence

repeating tragedy disturbs nothing
everything stands still
wheels turn slowly for me
memories are fading echoes
that seems so diatant

rescue never quite happens
haunting ghosts laughing
it's phantom living
an existence between storms
battered soul bleeding away

Bond

there is a bond between the cold and the grey
a connection between the deep and the abyss
when you look down at them or into them
you want to touch the the whirling debris
made of your own useless regrets

memories are like that too
they're like sepia photographs
hanging on the wall

I can bear my own pain
been doing it for years
bouncing from one thing
to another

I know how to push it down
drown it with chemicals  

It’s  the kid’s  pain
that breaks my shoulders

cos I can feel every bit of it
when I look in their eyes
or when their voice cracks a little

and yeah, there’s tears
when no one is looking
but I haven’t cried yet

I just hope I have enough
of whatever is keeping me calm
for the next couple of days

til it’s all over

she’s laid out nice
looks like she could wake up
any minute now and fix her makeup
to her own high standards

sometimes I don’t want to write

 
you don’t
want to
breathe
some days
either

but here
you are
with full
lungs

and no
excuse
