I looked upon a darkened night,

A star, it cut the sky,

A granting of a lonely wish,

My loneliness to die...........
A
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
***
A chequered past,

Secrets and lies,

Lack alacrity,

No real surprise
Peter J Thomas Oct 2016
Stare downward, keep on looking,

Be sure you do not miss,

The silent thoughts and secrets

of my mind, in the abyss
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.
Peter J Thomas Feb 2016
I have no

Responsibilities,

Looking into my own eyes,

I see,

Hollows,

Unkept,

Unloved,

Disillusioned,

Soulless and cold,

Staring back,

I wonder what he thinks,

Looking at me,

Probably sees failure,

Well, at times I even fail,

Failure.

Another day,

All's (un)well.
Peter J Thomas Oct 2016
Sat alone

just wondering,

Is it me

why life's a funny thing,

On days my heart

may want to sing,

yet times when

death, I'd want to bring.
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
One more drink before I go,

Then I'll stagger nice and slow,

And maybe fall or maybe not,

Boy I think I've drunk a lot.
Peter J Thomas Feb 2016
As curtains close and night descends,
We hide from Monday's dawn,
The duvet drawn over our eyes,
We hope to miss the morn'
Peter J Thomas Feb 2016
I close my eyes and hope for,

A long and lasting sleep,

From which I'll never come to wake,

It's a secret that I keep
Ask
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
Ask
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.
Peter J Thomas Feb 2016
I cannot change the words I've said,

The acts or reacts too,

But simply put, my mouth my foot,

At all times I love you.
Peter J Thomas Feb 2016
A time to sit, reflect, be still,

Let the world slide by,

Contentment it is worth a lot,

And I intend to try
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
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
Never been a clever talker,

Not known to hold my tongue,

Once it gets in motion,

I'm in trouble before long
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
The weekend clock is ticking down,

Soon all will be done,

We wish we'd tried much harder,

From when the weekend had begun.
Peter J Thomas Apr 2016
I'm no longer taking poison,

The ingestion had to stop,

But all the hurt that I have felt,

Is enough to make me drop.

There is no quick solution,

To the harm that has been done,

Though I'm heading down the right path,

The journey's just 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.
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
I'm glad today that I wore my belt,

Oh the shock that I would have felt,

Imagine the shame,

With nobody to blame,

From what I'd shown in Church when I knelt,
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
Cold,

Stone,

I lie,

For now upon,

The stone,

Soon,

To be,

Beneath
Peter J Thomas Feb 2016
She stood, she smiled, I melted,

Then suddenly she left,

My heart could barely beat again,

My life, my love, bereft
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.
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.
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
He is out every 30 minutes,

And puts stuff in his bin,

It's strange that he is out so much,

Just what's he putting in?
Peter J Thomas Oct 2016
Cuts in the clouded sky

reveal flashes

blue,

Like moth riddled bed sheets

I see the world beyond,

and it me.

Am I looking out

or they in?

Such silken threads,

bare like my

skin.

Before long,

too long

grey returns

and my mood

as night

darkens.

It was never meant to be

so

black.
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.
Peter J Thomas Apr 2016
One moment, a chance,

Don't blink,

Romance
Peter J Thomas Nov 2016
Clubbed to death

bludgeoned,

Life suddenly cut short,

The motive well

is unknown,

Perpetrator still not caught.
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
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.
Peter J Thomas Apr 2016
I bought myself a bonsai tree,

But little did I know,

Whilst it started off quite little,

You should have seen it grow
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
Today a young chap asked me,

Are you having a nice day,

I lied and said "delightful",

In a very British way
Peter J Thomas Apr 2016
A broken man,

Sits idly still,

Lacks happiness,

A broken will,

No hope, no chance,

No reason why,

The broken man,

Just waits to die.
Peter J Thomas Apr 2016
The bumblebee it takes to wing,

A buzz, a leap and flight,

But how can the bulbous bumblebee

Fly, it seems not right.
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
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.
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
A call to sleep,

But even though,

My eyes are shut,

To sleep, but no.
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.
Peter J Thomas Oct 2016
Flickering

wick,

Burning

quick,

Candle

light,

Versus

night
Peter J Thomas Feb 2016
When I sit and softly question,

The place where I belong,

I labour to convince myself,

That I've done nothing wrong



It's not in the steps I've taken,

But deep inside my mind,

I'm a lost soul that is struggling,

Searching for hope, I cannot find.
Peter J Thomas Feb 2016
I see you've noticed,

Despite my best,

Endeavours,

Then, you smile,

Is it knowing,

Or mocking,

Think of something,

That you,

Won't,

Can't, do,

Then do it,

Still smiling?

No,

What I (can't) do,

Is everything.
Peter J Thomas Feb 2016
What does it mean to be mean,

I mind, my mind tells me,

So I read, I read, I write, I'm right,

I'm all at sea, you see.
Peter J Thomas Apr 2016
New year,

New day,

Can't cope,

Same way,

The mind,

Too strange,

Need help,

Need change
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
Life, when living in a bottle,

At times can seem quite strange,

I awake, a drink I take,

Yet always hope for change.
Peter J Thomas Apr 2016
The sickened sight of death befalls,

Catching each alarmed,

Yet in the turmoil of excess,

We all are grotesquely charmed.
Peter J Thomas Mar 2016
A sunny Sunday morning,

A lovely time of year,

As winter's cold it fades aware,

Replaced by Spring's new cheer
Peter J Thomas Feb 2016
I look to make things better.

Don't quit 'til my last breath,

But on true reflection,

I'd be better choosing death.
Peter J Thomas Feb 2016
A clouded mind fogged by wine,

Thoughts slower than before,

I know that I have had my fill,

Yet reach for just one more
Peter J Thomas Oct 2016
Tripping over nothing,

Slipping far too much,

I'm cursed with being clumsy

breaking everything I touch.
Peter J Thomas Feb 2016
I caught a cold in winter cold,

Who knows my nose was red,

When suddenly I saw a saw,

A deed indeed was bled.
Peter J Thomas Feb 2016
A silence that is deafening,

I question what I've done,

Which is strange as I am sat alone,

A company of one
Peter J Thomas Feb 2016
Too many seek out all,

Wanting more than they have got,

Happiness is not volume,

It's being content with your lot
