Tomorrow
I just cannot write the words
that I want
cannot find them anywhere
so I won’t
I will leave it
and try again tomorrow

Born
Forgive my insecurities
they are born
from my badly cracked heart

Daughter
Dream big
if you still believe you can dream
otherwise
there is no point
and I have failed you.

Toxic
I am looking in your eyes
and smoking  a cigarette
I don’t know which one
is more toxic
you
or the cigarette

Friend
I will walk two steps behind you
catch you
with *******
should you fall
on the other hand
*******
behind my back
for me and you
directed
directly
at  the world

Essex
the conversation around here
is a long time dead
no one mourned it’s passing

Sound
Do not drip feed me
your love
drown me in emotion
and over the top words
scare me with honesty
and silence
the sound.

Welcome
we have overstayed
our welcome
in each other’s lives

Truth
I am not saying that you lie
or calling you a liar
but I think
truth
might like a quick word
with you.

See

I see you
although
I desperately
look
the other way

Life
Life asked
I answered
right question
wrong answer

Bits
Here is
a  very tiny small part of me
take if you will
just promise
to toss it back
before you leave
so I can catch it
mid air
and save
the little tiny best bits
of me
7d · 52
Fail
Words fail me
then I see
they fail you too
7d · 70
Flit
You flit lightly
through your life
yet fall heavily
on mine

End
End
The end came quicker
than either of us expected
I would have marked it
somehow
if I had known
not quite a party
but maybe
an inappropriate balloon?

fall back
as  far

you can
catch
me

Tears
I cry my tears
inside
because
otherwise
they would stain
my lily white
disguise

Lie
Lie
Found this here this morning
carelessly flung
on the living room floor
fallen I fear
from one of our pocket’s
a random lie
left over
but ill begotten

Raining
God, it’s raining hard tonight
most of it are pieces of my heart
don’t try to save them
as they splatter across your path
I have enough left inside me
it’s not quite
a bloodbath
yet

Dance
I dance every night
in vain
Apr 20 · 109
Jigsaw
I don’t fit you anymore
truth be told
you don’t fit me either
we are weird jigsaw pieces
at the edge of the puzzle
the ones you can’t quite work  out
where to put
for ages
then suddenly
out of the blue
you see it
that’s where they go
the puzzle complete!!
Apr 20 · 57
Next
I am exhausted
by the thought
that I might write
another line
transfixed by the man
who will no doubt
be my
decline
Apr 20 · 71
Daughter
Let it lie
I know
I hear you
trust me
or not
what do I know
but just
for now
please
maybe
for a minute
let it go
let it lie
and fly.
Apr 20 · 93
No
No
Remember when you leave
the ones  you love
kiss their cheek
laugh a wave
say see you soon
remember
just remember
there is no guarantee.

Polished
I am not sure
what you want
of me
anymore
so
let me leave all
of me
laid out
bare
naked
upon your very
finely tuned
expensive
Manhattan
polished floor

Yet
Yet
You think this is the end
this is it for you
my god
You’re twenty five years old

the worst is yet to come
and the best.

Then
And then
When there was no one
left in sight
I put out my cigarette
and said
Good Night!
Apr 20 · 118
Boo
Boo
I cannot mop up
all your sadness
but I will try
I cannot laugh loud enough
to silence your cry
I cannot dance long enough
to make you fly high
but trust me
I will try.

Stay
Big bits yesterday
fall into my
today
encroach  on
my tomorrow
making it impossible
for me
to stay.

I will close my eyes
if you admit the lie

Kill
When I was tiny
my father said
you have words at will
use them wisely
he said
they hold enough
power to ****
Apr 15 · 654
Bits
I have gathered up
all the little bits of me
the sharp edges
and the tiny shards
I have put them in this bag
right next to me
I won’t touch it
if
you don’t touch it
to
two
too.

Suspect
I have many many
friends
and a few of them
I suspect
are real.
Apr 12 · 86
Don’t
Don’t fall asleep on me
I know you are tired
as am I
But please
don’t fall asleep on me
not now
If you do
I fear
we might never
ever
ever
wake up again.

Girls
The tiny bits of youth
you dripped fed
into me
on warm Manhattan nights
with laughter and wine
hit home
I am better now
actually
I know more than you now
Try me?

Just
Are we just
two people
who have given up
on each other ?

I love you
mostly
because of
who I am
when you hold my
hand.
