It’s about you
Andrew 2d
You are the girl
That I once knew
Who stole my heart
Just to tear it in two
I still hear your voice
In the soft crackling fire
Like the sound of a choir
When they start to rejoice
I miss your gentle touch
Which I loved so much
But I won’t forget the day
When you simply walked away
Andrew 7d
Good will only give you
What you can handle
Andrew Nov 12
Everywhere I go
I look for you

Having your perfume
Lingering on my sleeve

Wondering along the streets
Watching all the houses

Loneliness leans on me
Just one more time

To see your face
To hear your voice

I still feel you
In this broken place

Let me sleep
Andrew Jun 6
If I could dream
Any dream
There’s only one dream
That I would dream
It would be you
Still loving me

Sorry I forgot you
Andrew Apr 29
I feel rather lost
Some days
I feel a little blue
Only now and then
I feel quite down
All because my mind
Runs back to you

Making amends to my ex-
Andrew Jan 27
I’m so scared
if we to meet
I’d loose my nerves
from under my feet

I arrive
all beat-up
while you waltz in
all dressed-up

I’m not here
to pose or impress
nor to stare
at your beautiful dress

please let this
go to plan
so I can
walk out
still being a man

Empty nesters
Andrew Jan 24
It’s ok to smile
even though
It’s been a while

This lonely old life
no man or woman  
no husband or wife

We live alone
when the children
leave home
our pets
become babies
as we sit
on our own

At night I reminisce
of loved ones
that I miss
those who aren’t here
are the ones
I hold dear

My hand feels
my heart gives
while my soul

My mum
Andrew Jan 15
you have been there
literally -
from day one
still handing out love
from all I have done

A mum
who is my mother
my protector
my carer
a strong shoulder
that never grew colder

It may be once or twice
I set the pace,
like wild mice
In a race,
yet somehow
you always managed
to keep our home
nice and safe

I have a family,
a place of my own
and if I can be
half the parent,
you were to me
than my boy will grow
to be quite a man-
won’t you agree?
For my mum

Teenage memories
Andrew Jan 13
Wherever I go
It will feel unfair
Whenever I stare
You’ll always be there

I like the clothes
That you wear
The way you care

I love the way
you do your hair
The looks we share

After seven years
You said goodbye
The words we used
Told the coldest lie

When we were young
Our world was fun
Now it’s all gone
Im back with mum

Your sorry for me,
I’m sorry for you

I’m an addict
Andrew Dec 2021
Before I die
I wanna try
Just one day
Without a lie
To feel free
In every way
Help me be
Run a mile
Go and play
With a smile
Make me cry
For a while
Not get high

My poetry
Andrew Dec 2021
My poetry
flows a certain way

I sculpture words
from the finest clay

The verses you hear
are thoughts we play

These lines I write
leads my pen astray

The tone I use
shows the darkest day

Behind each meaning
gives beauty they say

The gypsy girl
Andrew Dec 2021
The young gypsy girl
Who fell off a cloud
That found peace
When her feet
Touched the ground

She held the sunlight
Which would burn
Golden bright
While watching over you
As you sleep
Throughout the night

Her long red hair
With her stylish dress wear
Flows down the street
Floats on thin air

A long night
Andrew Dec 2021
Im a little low
Im feeling  blue
Im lost for words
When I think of you

Through the forest
And over the hills
When I think of you
It give me chills

I’d move a mountain
I’d run a mile
When I think of you
I remember that smile

When I think of you
I lay in bed
I can not sleep
After what you said
Dec 2021 · 860
Dark times
Andrew Dec 2021
Every night  
before I sleep
I close my eyes
and begin to weep

I lay there watching
the curtains sway
In a room
I painted black and grey

Will the morning
ever come
why do I hope
to see the sun
when tomorrow
I’ll be mad
feeling numb
Dec 2021 · 47
A Second chance
Andrew Dec 2021
I’ll be at home
By the phone
If you’re out there on your own
Watching you,
Drifting off to sleep
Knowing full well
You’re the one to keep

I’ll be missing
Your loving soul
Thinking about
Your tender
Caring role
If there’s anything
I could do
To put things right
between me and you
I’d turn the other cheek
Wash all the bad memories
Down the creek

I’m hoping
When you wake
A fight doesn’t want to take
You thought you’d choose
A better bloke
Over time
Your love for me
Sadly broke
That’s all I got to say
I kneel down
And I start to pray
Nov 2021 · 56
Lonely times
Andrew Nov 2021
This tiny
World I own
I tread this
Lonely stone

The moment you left
The room turned blue
My mask came off
Your words spoke true

If we didn’t
Meet that day
There wouldn’t be
Much to say

For every hour
I spent longing
Your face
Is slowly going

Why am I here
While you’re
Way over there

I hope you feel
Like how I feel
My heart is broken
Nothing is real
Nov 2021 · 56
The young girl
Andrew Nov 2021
There was a girl  
I once knew

She had these eyes
That would play
The perfect tune

Where in time
Showed me
This world
From a different view

Who I came to love
So dearly,
It ran deeply
And through
Nov 2021 · 331
For you
Andrew Nov 2021
If I was to write
A verse or two
Just for you
It would have to start

Your heart is
As pure
As the Mountain Dew
Filled with so much joy
Devotion would be
the best word served
For our home and family
And of course
our little boy

With everything
We have been through
Pink and blue
You’ve always stayed
Strong and true

If I was to give to you
What you have given us
It would be a lifetime’s worth
Of angels dust
My Xmas present for my partner

A short poem
Andrew Nov 2021
If I could paint
with my words
Your portrait
would be epic
Nov 2021 · 54
A memory
Andrew Nov 2021
Wherever I go
You follow

Im an autumn leaf
Flying in the wind

A beaten pebble
Washed up against the shore

If my words
Could really paint

Your portrait
Would say it all

A worn out memory

Which simply

Will not fade
Nov 2021 · 252
Andrew Nov 2021
Where do I go
how do I start
What do I do
with this broken heart

I feel so alone
like an empty city
A broken bone
full of gilt and pity

I often wonder
if you felt the same
I’m still here
me and my shame

There is no fire
without any flame
Clouds turn to thunder
its only me who’s to blame

A real friend
Andrew Nov 2021
Someone once said,
                             “If you are true friends
                         no matter whatever happens
                          you will always meet again”

My last words
Andrew Oct 2021
One day
we might
meet again,
you may
not remember me
but I’ll never
forget you.
Until then
when I
need you
I’ll keep you
hidden away
so no one
can touch you
In the back
of my mind
where I know
you’ll be
safe and sound
Oct 2021 · 505
Before I jumped
Andrew Oct 2021
If only you knew
how sorry
I really am,
for that day
by the lake
all I remember
was seeing you
kneeling down
with the soil
so embedded
behind each torn nail
watching your make-up run

Now and then

Back then
I never realised
How young I really was
And today,

“When a relationship ends,

To numb this pain

You were once
so young
Yet I never saw
what was coming
Dec 2020 · 73
Just then
Andrew Dec 2020
Just for a second!!
I thought you were gone,
Only to appear again
As I look down
Into an empty glass
Truly not knowing
That was to be my last
Dec 2020 · 113
It’s been so long
Andrew Dec 2020
It’s been so long
since we last spoke
but today,
your still there
inside my head
like you never left
Nov 2020 · 69
I’m sorry
Andrew Nov 2020
Give me a moment
Please.. just one moment
A single moment
To show me your acknowledgement
Of my existence
To tell you how truly sorry
I have become......

Parents are the most peculiar things,
You think you’re really close
Yet really you are so far apart
May 2020 · 90
Andrew May 2020
Why do I feel a failure
When I prefer to be a sailor,
A loner, a lost ghost,
A captain of a ship
I pray I live in hope
My last words won’t ever slip
I dream yet still learn
Your tender touch I mustn’t yearn
I laugh outside,
But cry hard inside
Like a loud ringing bell
You will never know I live in hell
Every tear drop I weep
I’m able to wash down
Every sidewalk, alley,
Even the dingiest street
Now, I mustn’t go astray
If I was to say
I saw my mum asleep
Also thought it would be
The last time we’d ever meet
May 2020 · 77
Just be!
Andrew May 2020
Every time I shut my eyes
I start to see
The real me
The one who God
Intended me to be
Be, just be
Don’t be me
Or he or she
A fake or a phoney
Take for example...The!
The ripest apple off the tree
Whoever you see-
It’s not just for you
But also for me,
Be the one who
You have been
Put here to be
Time to live free
That is the key
May 2020 · 95
Andrew May 2020
Every time I shut my eyes
I see you
Right there
In front of me
Where you shouldn’t be

Panic attack
Andrew May 2020
Fight or flight-
That’s what they say, right?
Say what you like
While the skin is pale
Throughout the day and night
Like a fresh clean sheet -
Crispy and white
Yes, you have guessed-
Anxiety and stress,
Adhd and my Aspergers
Smothers me tightly
Never gently or lightly
I hear the wind
In the leaves
As darkness
Covers my eyes
The most caressing breeze
Takes me down to the floor
Straight to my knees
May 2020 · 81
Andrew May 2020
Medication time!!
Someone hollers
While we queue
A lifeless fragile line...
God only knows
If these drugs
Actually work,
Make one feel fine
Or help go berserk
My counsellor once said
Stop listening to your head
Instead be more creative
It’s now time to unwind
Let’s shut up shop
And slow down this crazy mind

Pick a petal
Andrew May 2020
She loves me
she loves me not,
She breaks my heart
she knows the spot
