You sprinkled


On corners of

My heart

It twinkled 

It’s simple

And I fell…

In love

(…waiting for the fall… 😔)


Turn Back The Clock


Daylight snuck its way around the thick curtains

As if trying to offer some minute glimmer of hope

Its efforts futile as a clown at a funeral

And equally unwelcome

Oblivious to the wintry elements

I lie naked on the floor

If I had been trampled by a herd of rhinos

I could not feel more pain

My limbs steeped in concrete

My eyes only move

The sleeping figure with the smile 

On his pulchritudinous lips, fixates me

Abject revulsion fights unconditional love

As I blink repeatedly 

In the vain yet fruitless hope

Of an alternate reality

Exhausted, my mind struggles to accept

What my body knows with great clarity

In all my dreams, fantasies, desires I never saw this

I replay the scene relentlessly in my head

Desperate for another explanation

A dam of shock only restrains my tears

As I close my eyes and pray 

For this ‘Happy New Year’ to start over again.

Losing You


Razor blades rip

At the edges of my soul

Tearing it further apart

With each movement

No matter how I try

Elastoplast or stitches

Cannot fix me this time 

The blade has plunged too deep

Seems there was a heart 

In the abyss

A black heart

…now haemhorraging 


To its bitter bloodied end

Extraneous distraction  

Bit of fun, for a time

Temporary intervention

In the thoughts of my mind

Momentary affection 

Maybe, some kind of…


Or perhaps just


Infill of time…

(For you)

All alone and empty

Maybe deservedly

Blood-torn eyeballs

Aching and blurred

Thought it would be worth

Those moments mindless, free

Now I’m stuck in this abyss 

Deep inside of me

No-one sees the teardrops

From my dying soul

Life just goes on around

This dark decaying hole

Thoughtless words they witter  

Spears into my heart

No-one seems to notice 

That I’m falling apart 

Don’t see the tortured struggle

To face the world each day

The fireworks in my head

Don’t feel the agony 

They see a pretty cover 

A happy smiling face

Cos no-one really cares

To just turn one more page

Landslide of Life



All around

No hand holds…

Foot pegs

Just sludge

Rising, impacting

Suffocating sludge 

Seeping down my throat 

Nauseating my guts

Blinding my eyes


Everything crumbles 

Futilely I fumble 

But my world… still falls apart
