Short poems

I always put pepper on my salty cuts.

I always put pepper on my salty cuts.

12/06/18

Above all else the pages falter.

They blow in the wind like a frozen altar.

Melting, corroding, falling, unresponding.

Pairs of tears cross palms where the sights of snipers leave their mark.

You can’t see them anymore, times have jaded.

The wounds are deep but scars have faded.

We sit alone in the dark even in the light of day.

Just another nuisance another grey living in a silver cloud.

I always put pepper on my salty cuts.

It may be feeble, but I don’t give up.

Devious minds

Devious minds

12/05/2018

Sleep and begone the merry men of illustrious illusions.

How devious minds play dreams and conclusions.

Begone anxious states open plates, uneaten stale sandwiches and rotten cake.

Begone with your all’s well that ends well, time heals all wounds and don’t worry pet it will be better soon’s.

Take yourself down to that lagoon and look the dark horrors in the face as they grimace.

Shake hands with deaths claw and walk away unscathed.

Sometimes you have to walk the path someone else paved.

It’s grave.

Then return and tell me I’ll be saved.

Depression, the voice.

Depression, the voice.

09/05/18

You’ve got the voice of an angel, a father figure who tells stories and fables.

Picks people up, makes them feel special and more able.

My name’s depression, I’m here to turn the tables.

Mad ideas to see me as your thoughts spin through viaducts discreetly.

Drowning beyond the faith you hide behind to stay afloat, how do you really cope?

What are you gonna do when I rock the boat?

Here’s the thing, somewhere near sleep and dreaming.

That place where the you should start with and believing, yeah that calm place.

That’s where you’ll hear me screaming your name, in your voice with your words turned sour and cursed.

Make sure you slip the verse.

When you’re rock steady and able you’ll freeze.

Uncertain you’ll hit reverse.

Tell me again with your voice and your pen.

How do you stop this depression organ?

Train wreck.

Train Wreck.

15/0518

Hmm how interesting, the fear train associated with the hazard gap you’ve explained time and again.

The safety net the great pretext to beat what they haven’t conquered yet.

Him I’ll never forget.

I need to bring forwards what I’ve not achieved to date.

Goodbye Lee.

No regrets mate.

Leap of faith.

Leap of faith.

They call it a leap of faith when the shelf disappears and the yelling stops.

When you can’t help but face what was making you drop.

Broken knees, buckled gut wrench like angle grinders to fingers on a workbench.

Cut down and stood up to fall through dark mud. What’s the colour of your blood?

They say you have to face it to make it. That vulnerable sickness you feel when you want to run.

That’s step one.

Stopping and perceiving the believing of the problem.

Those issues, phobias and fears.

Newsflash: We’ve all got those.

Tore my house down.

Tore my house down.

25/04/2018

And there we’ll go to another wedding, another baby shower, another “Isn’t this fun?” another happy hour with statue faces, airs and graces, elongated gestures and food you can’t take where nothing’s out of place and there’s nothing I want more than to scream “What a f*cking bore!”

Take me out of this race I can’t help the faces, I run backwards and trip “Just get a grip” as I cry mercy and quit because you know what? I’m not over it. I never will be. When you left you tore my house down and chewed up the foundations.

Please fly with the angels and play with the daisy’s.

Goodnight baby.

The cost of a daughter.

The cost of a daughter.

15/04/18

It only takes one tale of love and loss.

One dead relative.

One misplaced trust.

It takes just one person with a connection to share to another that bounces off his wife, children or mother.

It takes on pill stained tear, one last minute of hope, one “are you okay?” to check she can cope.

One thought to save a life.

One share it could be your wife.

One comment they blag “I’m fine” as they lay in the bath with a knife.

It only takes one tale of love and loss.

If this was your daughter, tell me.

What is the cost?
