Which er Witch
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
Tick tock it is the witching hour,

I fear they're all around,

They creep and sneak and then appear,

Without the slightest sound.

Pup v Pub
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
I took my puppy to the pub,

I'd say we have great fun,

But when it came to buying drinks,

She failed to buy me one.

Tomorrow is the dentist,

I'm scared and that's the truth,

The last time that I had to go,

I left with just one tooth.

When I last went out for dinner,

People were looking at me weird,

It's only when I got home late,

I saw burger in my beard.

For Help
Peter J Thomas Feb 2016
Looking inward for an answer,

I am weakened by the the task,

A darkness just envelops me,

Yet for help I'll never ask.

The countdown clock is ticking,

We know it tells no lie,

From the moment we are newborn,

It counts down 'til we die.

A cold and frosty Monday morn',

Heads down, we look at feet,

Would not a three day weekend,

Just be an ideal treat?

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.

Tulips standing tall and proud,

Of colours different to the crowd,

I wonder what I'm going to see,

When the tulips time is history.

My doctor said to diet,

I just looked him in the eye,

I said think about it Doctor,

Having tea after you die.

Too Tired
Peter J Thomas Feb 2016
I'm too tired,

To sleep,

Devoid of energy,

Yet energised,

Fraught with worries,

Downed by despair,

I am too tired,

To sleep.

We Fear
Peter J Thomas Feb 2016
We fear the things we cannot see,

Or things we think we hear,

A moment though of clarity,

Shows all we fear, is fear.

So long since you were here,

Let's all have a party,

And be full of no work cheer

(Over the) Pill Counter

My daily dose of wellness pills,

Is in a weekly container,

The sadness of filling it up,

Makes me want to take the remainder

A scent of blood,

Draws them near,

Beware the dark,

You're right to fear.

As the hour draws steadily near,
The cold chilled spine from unknown fear,
As Sunday goes, Monday appear,
The weekend's dead, we shed a tear.
A weekend gone

I see the narcissist standing in the corner,

Rent a friend (or ten), on hand to smile, laugh,

How can so much love be reflected inwards?

In a moment of madness,

I ask him how he is,

And he begins to tell me,

A "Show and Tell" person,

Show me everything they have,

Tell me how much it cost,


No, that's so last week,

He is the one and only......

By next week,

He'll be the one,

And only


Who cares

As Curtains

We hide from Monday's dawn,
The duvet drawn over our eyes,
We hope to miss the morn'

I sat proudly with a biscuit,

To dunk into my tea,

But I seemed to lose my touch,

It fell in, disgustingly.

The gloom that clouds our Monday,

Cast shadows 'cross our hearts,

We toil at tasks that we despise,

Whilst our loved ones are apart.

Promises, promises
Peter J Thomas Oct 2016
Every night I make a promise

That tomorrow things will change,

My life it will be better,

The troubles not so strange,

Each promise is of hollow words,

Like Easter Eggs, just shells,

For though I promise better,

Each tomorrow is just Hell.

Technically Inept
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
Whenever I use gadgets,

Afterwards I've often wept,

It's not that I'm emotional,

Just technically inept.

Goodnight cruel World, I've struggled through,

Another of your days,

Quite how I've survived for so long,

In adversity always.

The bumblebee it takes to wing,

A buzz, a leap and flight,

But how can the bulbous bumblebee

Fly, it seems not right.

A stranger site I have not seen,

How weird can someone be,

I saw a man forking his lawn,

With a piece of cutlery

To show that I love you,

Goodbye and toodle-ooo

Lacking Mobility

My phone is always charging,

Plugged into the wall,

I wouldn't call it mobile,

In no way, not all at.

The yellow yawn of daffodils,

Sing proud the dawn of Spring,

A coloured flash,

Through fields we dash,

True beauty that they bring.

I met a lovely butcher,

His shop was such a treat,

He joked and smiled and all the while,

Cut up some chunks of meat.

I Drink
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
I drink,

To calm,

To rest,

For charm,

I drink,

For hope,

To live,

To cope,

I drink,

For me,

So that,

You'll see,

I drink,

That's all,

Don't judge,

The call

The direction in which it turns,

Why things are the way the are,

How my heart still yearns.

I Choke
Peter J Thomas Feb 2016
Not on food I choke,

On words,



Recalled to me,

Like a catalogue of disasters,

I choke,

Because I miss you,

Yet you never knew I cared,

I choked

I tried to tell you,

And now,

Now I choke on pills,

And you'll never know.....

One trick that always worked for me,

The Shop
Peter J Thomas Oct 2016
Closed at 10am,

With customers outside,

Opening at 12pm,

By then the interest's died.

*Sometimes I feel as a blogger, like a shopkeeper with no customers. It isn't that I want people to buy anything, but it would be nice to have a few folk wander in and browse for a while. We may not have free WiFi, but we could always just talk to each other.......

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.

It is never about the words I use,

The order,


It is the tangled tapestry between lines,

Try reading it,

Don't look,


Inherently the unwritten ink runs darker.
We are more than the sum of our arts

Like Lego

My mind it seemed quite clear,

But no, it sat just waiting there,

My companion, ever near.

Wanting more than they have got,

Happiness is not volume,
