“Normality” people cry
And I can’t help but ask
A slave to the wage
Already trapped in a cage
What is it about life before
That you are all grieving so much for?
The freedom of which you speak
Having to book a holiday for a ******* week

Yes I miss a warm embrace
I want him here kissing my face
Technology overload
So ***** I’ll explode
Yet somehow I know
That back to ‘normal’
Is not where I want to go

When this is over
You’ll book that holiday
And take the next flight
To some far away place
To have the same sun
On your face
Then back to your cage
A slave to the wage

This simulation was not a success
Mother Nature cries
You’re all a ******* mess
She’s given you a chance
A time to pause
To reflect
To ponder
To dream
Yet you dare not ask
What does all this mean?

Do you sit there and wait
For world leaders
To decide your fate?
Will you choose to do good?
To have compassion for those
Where isolation is all they know?
Locked away behind bars
With their trauma and their scars
Out of site
Out of mind
They’ve been left behind

When this is over
I’ll ask myself the question
What do I yearn for?
And the answer will be
As it’s always has been
From normality

Saturday night
She danced the night away
The night is over
But she still wants to play
Like the pied piper
She plays her tune
And friends, thieves and lovers
Fly from the moon
They’re excited to see
Disco ***** in all her glory
The musky hummmmm
Sweet and sticky
She likes it when
You give her bean a flicky
Her mating call
Is a sight to behold
Once you hear it
There is no escape
And like a Venus flytrap
She entices you in
So grab your snorkel
And dive into the depths
For are many treasures
That one can find
Disco ***** has nothing to hide
Evoke the Disco *****
For she’s always there for you
A sign of a magical night
Of what naughty deeds
You have been up to
And if you can’t remember
Disco ***** will be there to remind you

Scar tissue
It's ugly stuff
Though some people say
It's beautiful
In its own way
Like hardened lava
After the eruption
Of pain you once knew
Tugging on your soul
And heart
Making it hard to beat
Leaving you breathless
It's like a ghost
That haunts your every move
A reminder of the past
And of your strength
That you got this far
You made it through
Scar tissue
It's tough stuff
But so are you

If only I found it easy
To express my love for you
Why don't the words flow
Like they used to

You are my strength
And always there for me
I wish I deserved you
But that will never be

You've never left me
Even when pushed away
Despite my self sabotage
And harsh things I say

I've let you see my dark
Others only see my light
Yet you stayed with me
And held me every night

I don't often say the words
I love you
My heart is scarred by the past
But you know, I really do
Sounds like I'm terrible to be around. But I'm not. Just was once and sometimes I am. Everyone has darkness, even those who shine everyday. How else could they shine so bright?

Smell the air
The scent of autumn mulch
The rain pours and pelts
Washing away the memories of summer
Leaves of orange and red
Clinging on to branches
For dear life
Not wanting to let go

I know how that feels
To feel like you're being
Pulled so hard
Every day
Bashed and bruised
Forced to go to a place
You don't want to be

Like the leaves
You eventually fall
Are trampled on
Over and over
But duty calls
It's the circle of life

Then spring comes
And you wake
The sun is shining
And you can face the day
You tell yourself
It's all ok

A ******* cloud  
I see it on the horizon

A storm of uncertainty and doubt
Coming closer and I wait

The fog rolls in and blinds me
Pain is so opaque

I cannot see
Fooled by the eye

It is not over
The worst is yet to come

When pain turns to sadness
It lingers and scars

Finally find my strength
And with it stand tall

I weathered the storm
Now the air is so pure

Breath in and out
Face a new day

Pick up what's left
And find happiness again
