It's been a while

Hello old bean,
Where were you?
I waited with a smile,
Waited quite a while...
Didn't think you'd show up
Did I say something wrong?
So what's been happening?
Tell me your tale.

My head is ringing
Heart is singing
Feet are tapping
Body wrapping itself around you
As if it were yesterday
Time to play
Things to say
Don't give up on me.

Can we step back to where we were
Start as if there were no break
No silences between the lines
Where thoughts became words spoken

Can we remember who we are
Learn again our favourite laugh
Take in that special breath
That makes us smile again

There, I think we did it
It was easy enough
Like being a machine,
Hello, old bean!

Wedding Wonder

It's late.
I've bathed. It feels wonderful
A lot has happened today.
My heart feels so loved.
My feet throb with clean.
Racing mind slowing down.
Ian and Chris sound like they're
Building an extension downstairs.
I'm sure Mum will sleep through
Probably shout in her sleep at them too
Birthday Girl!
Still gutted about my nail experience
Wonder what I'll do.
Hard to let go when you're looking
At them constantly.
I'll close my eyes now
And sleep.
Three more to go.
Mrs (Cuddly)Burrow!

A Moment

Where did it all go?
That lust for life?
The inspiration that always
Flowed seems to have
Run dry.
Now I look and the page
Is blank
Nothing jumps out at me.
You take over and the
Sounds disappear in my head
The tap's been left on
My feet are drowning
I know it's my insecurities
Enveloping my creativity,
You try to make me smile
Stop me from looking down
Flush the water away.


Disgusting tie 19 June 07

Boring people on the boring train
I'm boring a hole into your boring brain
Listening to the same conversation again
The train's delayed because of the rain

My lover has more love for me than
All the raindrops in the clouds
His every minute is interesting
The things he does make me so proud

He'd never wear a tie like yours
He'd never give me filthy looks
He'd never sit there looking bored
Pretending to read his boring books

He'll always have a smile for me
A special look, a tender touch
He'll always make me laugh out loud you see
I love him so completely much.

Ink runs through
There's lots going on
I didn't know
What I should do
I love you ~
It's empty sometimes
People's lives are filled
And you just don't know where to go
Everytime ~ it flows
And you just don't know
How easy it is to become
So down with everything going on
And it's fine, you'll be okay;

Nose Flow

Sometimes I wonder if I can go on
So I stop and draw around my thumb
The list gets longer of things to do
Preparations, planning and what have you
My nose feels blocked with mucous green
Inside my thoughts are far from serene
I try to breathe to clear the flow
But dribble instead and have to go
To fetch some tissue for my nose.
I'd like to blow it all away
All the stress from today
Leave the page clear and fresh
Ready for tomorrow's constant flow
On and on it goes

If I were a dog
I'd love to play
All day in the river
And even though I'd be wet
I'd have no regret
And I certainly wouldn't shiver.



Oh the life of a bird
Though it seems absurd
Is probably actually very sweet
To be able to flit here and there
Make nests out of hair
And spread the word with a tweet
What better way
Than to spend all day
Hanging around in a tree
Eating worms
And their germs
How I wish that bird was me!

Cloud ground

Watching other people
Seeing what they say
How they feel
She looks like a pig, a drug-addict, a pretty thing.
An old hag, a smiling man, a heavy smoker.
A drunken fool, a lonely chap, a cold person.
I wonder where I am,
Can I really feel like this?
It just doesn't make sense
Anymore. It's as if the clouds came down
And turned into the ground and the
Ground rose up and every step forward
Bounced me up high, so I cracked my head
On the hard ground ceiling, the roots
Tangling up in my hair pulling hard as I
Bounced back down to the cloud ground.
