Is this love?

.

Perfection may never come

Maybe it does not exist

The most important thing in love

Is knowing love exists

.

Pass time together

No matter what you do

Talk often and listen too

Let the warmth shine through

.

Watch the sunset

Feel the rays warm your skin

Take a deep breath

Let that oxygen in

.

Picnic in the park

Glass of wine a treat

Look into her eyes

Like the first ever meet

.

A stroll in the park

Hand in hand sheer bliss

Hours pass by walking

Finished by a single kiss

.

Let your heart take flight

Forget insecurities passed

Embrace that chance given

And know it will be the last

Tormented Dad

I’m sick of being nice

I’ve taken so much crap

My rage has been building up

I’m gonna use a bat!

.

Bad luck follows me about

Followed by it wasn’t meant to be

Doors just close on my face

This Shit always happens to me!

.

Rejection, bollocks,

I’ve had enough

I’m Fucking good

But can’t get any luck

.

Weekends working,

This has got to change

My kids do not deserve this

I’m going deranged!

.

Abused outside the court room

Keep my calm

Oh how I would of liked

To of caused harm

.

But nice old me

Said nothing like I do

And got walked over

Like a trampled poo

.

Could of been nasty

Stuck in the knife

That is luckily not me

Affecting someone else’s life

.

I thought two steps ahead

Of the knock on effect

Overall who would suffer

From my move to dissect

.

As I believe

It is not for me to say

I know that life will present

All her nasty ways

.

And although maybe I’m bitter

My hatred so strong

I’ve always tried

Just to get along

.

For the sake of our boy

Who deserves none of this

For all your selfish actions

Even when you take the piss

.

I will be civil

Even though I can’t stand you

Your bullshit will show finally

And your transparency will shine through

We cannot go back

.

I’m a great believer in karma

As you may already know

I believe what goes around comes around

That’s the way it goes

.

I’ve had some proper shitty weeks

It’s been all getting so much

Then my car broke down

Turned out to be the clutch

.

I had had enough

I cried like a child

My dog comforted me

It lasted a while

.

I been asking myself

Is it cause I don’t believe?

I try to be selfless

And the occasional good deed

.

First stress this week over now

My dog has gone to a good home

She has companions

And lots of space to roam

.

I’m still waiting a call for a job

Been a week in all

Every time my phone goes

I think it’s THE call

.

Still awaiting news for the car

Gonna cost a bomb

So much work to be done

Going on for so long

.

Tomorrow stressing me now

Judgement day

Will change all our lives

It is the only way

.

So I try to stay positive

Although lots of negative crap

Think about the future

Because we cannot go back

A good cry

I’m calling out for help

Friends, family

Begging almost

I don’t know how to get through

I feel it coming

Washing up

Tears trickle down my cheeks

Voice starts to go

End my call

I can understand

Bitter taste

Need to carry on

Then

It floods

Wailing like a child scorned

The only friend I have

That consoles me

The hypocrite

Is man’s best friend

That this bastard cannot keep

I’m just going to give her away

Because she’s too much….

.

In my time of need

She is there

I cry

I cry

I cry

Hysterically

Breakdown finally hits

Will I go on?

Have I got a choice?

Things look bad

They always do

Going through bad times?

Have a good cry

Hear me roar

Naked

Free as can be

I’m proud

Can you not see?

.

I am strong 

Tall 

My scream is a roar

When I part my wings

Watch me soar!

.

I hunt my prey

Watching with my eagle sight

I pounce

Sudden

No time for fright

.

I rip it apart

Through flesh and bone

Crimson spewing

I am at home

.

I am the predator

Fear me

Run for your life

If I catch you

Beg for your life

.

I know mercy not

Pity

Futile

I am solitary

Profit from exile

.

Leave my prey uneaten

What do I care?

I am the king

The world is my lair

Job Interview

Nervous,

It could all change

Life could become

Ever so strange

.

Can’t sleep

Can’t eat

What’s it doing to me?

I’m so stressed out

Is it to be?

.

That stress before

The work I put in

All that paperwork

Just to put in the bin

.

Research

Prepare 

Do everything I can

Tell myself stay calm

Stick to the plan

.

It’s just a job

I know 

It doesn’t change things

That uncertainty before

All the stress it brings

.

I won’t tell anyone

Not even my mum

Hearing no

Never been fun

.

Self confidence gone

Success ratio down

All these rejects

Make me frown

.

Approach it calm

All you can do

Take a deep breath

Have faith in you

.

Do I deserve this?

Is it finally a yes

Am I gonna get it?

After this

I’m gonna be a mess

.

Fate is gonna come knocking

One day

You will see

When you hear that yes

Your gonna be happy

10 months

Our little baby girl

In your little baby world

10 months passed so quick

We don’t regret one bit

You allume our day with your smile

Your blue eyes gleaming all the while

Play with your toys make a mess

Say our names our little princess

Make us feel better with a little hug

Show mummy and daddy your baby love

We are a team

.

When I think of love

I look at others

What they have 

In front of them

.

I think of us

What we are

How we live

And then

.

The days we pass

Together, apart

And all the

In between

.

Others perfect

Sure they have cracks

May be not

What they seem

.

We make it work

Through everything

Strong and the

Between

.

Our imperfections

Matter not

We are strong

And a team

A little one

.

What would we do for them?

With their continuing innocence

Their regard always sweet 

Always have their confidence

.

Sometimes shy not for long

Until they’ve assessed it all

That inquisitive behavior constantly

More than us even though they’re small

.

Testing all the time 

To try and make us scream

A reaction is all they need

Your cracking at the seams

.

Jealousy is interesting 

how they react

Another child comes along

Parents love still intact

.

A little cuddle here and there

So soft like it’s a dove

Their insecurities shining through

Cause they need to feel loved
