Wonderings of Love

To fall in love
is a stranger to me.
Which doesn't lead
to poetry
of feelings
so mushy
they wouldn't be out of place
with some fish and chips.

I suppose
it must bring comfort
a feeling of warmth
a smile
paired with a steady heart beat
Never totally alone
always accepted
more often than not
when loved in returned. 

To fall
to be
in love
I don't know if any poetry
can express the wonder
well enough.

Jellyfish Cloud

I would have taken a picture but I was in the car >.<

It was a whisper of grey
a barely there
imprint against
the charcoal background
rolling behind it.

Drifting tendrils
with a rounded top.
It was like a jelly fish
except that it was
in the sky.

Erosion Insults

Knocked back
with insults
wearing away
as a river
does a to rock.

Then picked back up
laugh it off
insist its a joke
no harm done


part of me
just a small,
small part
falls away.

Got a headache so the poem will be short and shit today. Hurray! 

Writing this 10 minutes later. I still don't know what to write. 

Going on to one 

New age
new way of showing time
increasing technology
and our screen time
decreasing our time with
each other
to face
numbers taking away

Blue Over Grey

I've found optimism
looking up
at a blue sky
rather than grey pavement
The daffodils nod in
or perhaps it's just the breeze

Rather than watch my feet
Plod along
I can watch the clouds
race one another
focus on things around me
rather than just me.

Searching for Signs of Magic

When I was little
I looked for signs of magic
A sparkle of light
which I hoped only I could see
Twitching fingers
trying to move objects 
And dreams of flying
always flying.

Now coated in a sense of self
and public opinion
the mind is more careful
to try and think
the right way

Though today
a street lamp flashed
just for a second
I smiled.

Cool Breeze

strokes the face
the breeze
caresses the skin
cools it down
after suffocating
Thoughts are allow
to chill

Let Art Take Over

This poem is response to Rebecca Black and Jenna Rose. Its songs like this that really make miss John Lennon and the 60s era in general. And I wasn't even alive then -.-

Let talent get the spotlight
not the looks
or money
or the product.
Let soul shine through
set loose

Spread a deserving message
your beliefs 
not an image.
don't auto tune,
don't diet 
don't pout.

Please, please, please 
set art free.

Happy Place

So I saw NeverShoutNever yesterday. I've loved his music for 2 years and it was incredibly wonderful to see him and meet him afterwards. I don't mean to sound like a pre teen fan girl but really, he does inspire me to try and be my own person. 

I found my happy place
I can go there
and no one can take it away 
It's hidden under the blanket
that covers my brain in darkness
there it is
glowing in perfection

Street lamp lit alley 
heavy bass and drums
 in the background
fans, who understand
and the reason we're all there
in the first place
top it off with a simple signature
done with a smiley face.

All it takes is a song
and I'm there
troubles forgotten 
in that shining moment
when a dream
became real.

Repeating Waves

Conversation washes over me
makes me wonder if waves repeat
always blue
take me away
on a new ship
and let me hear some new waves

Festival Spirit

bottle thrown
amp shrieks 
foot sticks to floor
sun peeks through
lights flash
adrenaline runs
pain of the sore feet

Sunday, 20 March 2011


Not noticing feet along the pavement 
Nor the daffodils at the side
until they come in to focus
when your abruptly awoken
by the honk of a horn. 

A smile stuck on the face
not thinking of passers by
just the scene in your head
tweaking the details 
until it's just right,
just what you want.

The smile grows larger
the scenery fades 
and once again
you forget the world you're in
and become lost
in your own.

The old becomes new
life breathed in
a fresh face
a fresh start
twisted through the fabric
happiness is easy.

The Corner of my Eye

In the corner of my eye
I wish to find
looking at me
in the corner of your eye
a smile on your face

I wish to find your arm
brushing mine
you'll be kind
and have the same smile
and all the while
you'll be thinking of me
always in the corner
of your mind.

Natural Disasters

My thoughts are in Japan. 

Be safe.
Let miracles move
through the terror
and the pain
Love outshine
and because of
the living nightmare
we become closer.

Believe this is the 80th blog? Bloody hell! 

Forgive me
for I thought you
were someone
I knew.
No need to look away
or down at the floor
ignoring the view.
Just ignore
an ugly stranger's

Here Comes the Anxiety

Here comes the anxiety 
here comes the stress
here comes the panic
the worry
and the mess

Then there's the brain
the heart
the stomach
working together
but you feel like torn apart

Light the match
the fuse will burn
just you wait
it might be your turn.

Fleeting Youth

Feeling of youth
is fleeting
Soon to be greedily
by years.
not so much of grey
or wrinkles
but of slowly
breaking down.

Don't think of this
until you see,
living proof.

Trying to Write Free Style

The picture is a chewing gum artist, it might be kind of gross or weird to some people but I really love the idea of it. I thought it kind of fitted in with what I was trying to say in this poem. 

I wish that when I talk
the words flow
simple as a

meaning grasped
with ease
passion clear
in the tone
the pauses

On the streets
feel the beat
of the people

Lets talk
find art in life
and soul
in each other.

Reminder Rainbow

Roses, strawberries, lips
Tropicana, high lighters, pumpkin
Sunshine, daffodils, holidays 
Grass, forests, spring 
Ocean, berries, sky 
Dusk, sapphires, blankets
Royalty, amethyst, parma violets

When everything
Reason and
Restlessness takes over
You begin to fall.

Guess who got January exam results today . .

Future crushing down
at simple letters
on a page
no rage
just fear
and tears.

Hope is there
but you can't see it yet
hidden by the overwhelming
sense of failure 

The time to try again
will come soon
but at this moment
the here and now
is all there is.

Strolling Observations

I wrote this on my ipod touch while walking to visit my friend. So it may not make much sense but it's how I wrote it in the moment, which I kind of like. 

Footsteps through crocus
as are the feet within the shoes 
that are treading through
with the up most care.
He walks
his feet making a barely there
upon the green.

Arms brushing together
purposely close
either one could move
neither does
are they hiding something
or is there nothing to hide?

No real direction
just floating
no up
nor down
just blue 

No real sound
just a pulse
tapping at the wrists
for the ears 
to hear.

The longing for air
to be like water
where one
can simply float
is strong.

It's like sunshine
warming you
from the bones
along the veins
through the blood
then strokes the skin

A mouth not having
a will of its own
twitches upwards 
teeth possibly
making an appearance

No control
but not wanting any
happy to be here
and not be anywhere

Fear of the dark
is not the darkness itself
but the fear of the unknown
if there's something
in the midst of the shadows.

Fear of death
is not the death itself
but fear of the unknown
if there's nothing
or something
for our so called souls
to end up in.

I'll try shine a torch
in that darkness
hold on to some hope.
Let's try to be brave.

Make a Wish

Eye lashes
Simple things
loaded with
heavy burdens

They can float
around us
despite that weight
a slight reminder
of hope.

How to Forget Your Reflection

Look in the mirror
remind yourself you're repulsive
Look at the floor
avoid eye contact
to forget.

Try to stop the mind whirring
at a stranger's whisper
Don't guess what they're saying
concentrate on your feet
count the cracks in the pavement
Forgotten for the time being.

A glimpse of a reflection
in the window
Another reminder
count the cracks again
try to forget.

Again - used and wrote this in a minute =] 

It's something that cannot be blagged
or lied about
It's details
Usually important
asked for
when someone needs to know something
delving deep
in to the facts
leaving room
for much else
but the truth.

A Poem on Poetry

in motion 
words flowing
never knowing
the right words to use
try not to abuse
the language 
try and make it good
the way we should
holding a mirror to life
and reflecting
on the reflections.
