Fear
Peter J Thomas Apr 2016
It's difficult,

It's hard, I find,

The fear, that lives,

Inside my mind,

A fear of here,

Of now, of all,

Disabled by,

Fear's fateful call.

Away
Peter J Thomas Apr 2016
It's difficult to speak out loud,

Though I do know what to say,

Perhaps my voice will ring again,

And the fear will fall away

Gone
Peter J Thomas Apr 2016
Unspoken,

How he wished,

He'd dare just say,

Chances missed,

And gone

Pain
Peter J Thomas Apr 2016
Broken skin,

Exposed vein,

One last time,

To ease the pain

Ghosted

Ghosted mist,

Free floating friend,

He'll come for you,

And it's the end.

One moment, a chance,

Don't blink,

Realise
Peter J Thomas Apr 2016
April's fool we recognise,

The darkness, cold, behind the eyes,

So it should come as no surprise,

The fool is you, you realise

Bike
Peter J Thomas Apr 2016
A tale that's full of wonderment,

But one that you might like,

I went to town to buy a hat,

Yet came home with a bike.
Mar 2016 · 193
There
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
A tired smile,

A knowing stare,

The times he wished,

He wasn't there.

Door
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
As days knock upon April's door,

Soon March, my friend, will be no more,

We cannot stop the shifting sands,

As time we cannot so command.

Easter Legs
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
An early Easter Sunday,

I'm looking out for eggs,

I'm running round the garden on,

My tired little legs.

A chequered past,

Secrets and lies,

Lack alacrity,

No real surprise

Cope
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
Eyes reddened by the liquor,

Soul blackened, lacking hope,

Amazing how in spite of this,

The World thinks he can cope.

No More
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
Twisted, tired

Body sore,

Approaching end,

Can take no more.

It's been a while,

The blossom's here,

As is my smile

Adversity
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
Goodnight cruel World, I've struggled through,

Another of your days,

Quite how I've survived for so long,

In adversity always.

Bleed
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
Internally, unstoppable,

Yet you fail to see me bleed,

Must red stain my clothes and more,

For you to see my need.
Mar 2016 · 236
Flaw
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
Who is it that's watching you,

Your phone, your files, and more,

What will they see when they look close,

Yes, every crack, and flaw.

Trawl
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
Once more I find myself alone,

Sat, over-thinking all,

For once will my poor mind just rest,

And not for thoughts will trawl,
Mar 2016 · 472
Than
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
Fed up with criticising souls,

In all I see or do,

It's easier to criticise,

Than do right, over to you.

Don't Care
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
Ask me all you want my friend,

Seen it and been there,

Whilst you can sit, pontificate,

I simply don't care.

Begun
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
One more, then another,

I never know when I'm done,

The monster that's been lurking,

His night has just begun.

Ug-Ducky
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
There once was an ugly offspring,

Unfortunately it was me,

As I grew old,

The more I got told,

That I was a sight to not see.

Stink
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
My head is often hurting,

For I often over-think,

I wish that I could switch it off,

But that would cause a stink

Biccy
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
I sat proudly with a biscuit,

To dunk into my tea,

But I seemed to lose my touch,

It fell in, disgustingly.

May I....
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
Given opportunities,

I tend to miss my chance,

We'll never know what could have been,

Had I asked you to dance.

I'm 2
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
I'm too tired to compute,

I'm way too tired to think,

I'm just too tired to enjoy life,

I'm not two, but one on the brink
Mar 2016 · 272
Free
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
Taking off my clawing coat,

Letting my belt come free,

My clothes no longer seem to hide,

My pronounced belly.

Told
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
When I was quite little,

I wanted to be old,

I realised as time passed by,

I was wrong, if truth  be told.

C.A.K.E
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
If you're looking for an impact,

Or an impression to make,

One trick that always worked for me,

It to present some cake.

Gone
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
Seeking solitude in crowded rooms,

Wanting company of one,

I'm happy trying to hide away,

Until the crowd has gone.

Wondering about my world,

The direction in which it turns,

Why things are the way the are,

How my heart still yearns.

Welcome to the weekend,

So long since you were here,

Let's all have a party,

And be full of no work cheer

Locked down Pound
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
My puppy is imprisoned,

To be kept in solitude,

Her crime involved a postman,

And her incredibly bad mood.

Little woolly monsters,

Dark as vampire bats,

Frightening the children,

Who else, but knitted cats

Writing's on the Scrawl.
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
I went to see my doctor,

I was feeling quite unwell,

He wrote down some strange notes,

What he put I couldn't tell.

Countdown
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
The countdown clock is ticking,

We know it tells no lie,

From the moment we are newborn,

It counts down 'til we die.

The End
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
My path goes slowly forward,

One way, that we all send,

As steps grow stifled, slower,

We all approach the end.

I'll raise a pint of Guinness,

There's little else to say,

Let's drink, dance and be merry,

On this St Patrick's Day.

As a single memory,

The choice is yours to make, now,

Final

Welcome disappointment,

It seems I got it wrong,

Perhaps my time is over,

And this, my final song

What she does I could't say,

But men come round there every day,

Last time I'm sure I saw one pay.........

A stranger site I have not seen,

How weird can someone be,

I saw a man forking his lawn,

With a piece of cutlery

Off out to the garden,

Let's hope it doesn't rain,

Whilst I know that I am waterproof,

Getting wet is such a pain.

If everything were easy,

It may not feel so great,

Yet when everything is difficult,

Life's an unforgiving state.

Reflection

I catch a mere reflection,

Of myself, in window pane,

Should I look upon such sorry sight,

I may never look again.

As frost bites the new found shoots of green,

Poking through dark soil,

Will Winter **** all chance of life,

Bright blooms too quick to spoil.

At times can seem quite strange,

I awake, a drink I take,

Yet always hope for change.

She's visited by men,

I haven't sat and watched all day,

But I'll still counted ten
