Remember

.

Remember

Those that have left

Those that have gone

.

Remember

Time passed with

Gifts such as bliss

.

Remember

Stories repeated many times

In your head like a rhyme

.

Remember

Expressions on their face

Always had their place

.

Remember

Arguments and tears

Happiness and fears

.

Remember

Feeling safe in their arms

Away from any harm

.

Remember

The day that they left

Empty, bereft

.

Remember

That person

Never forget

Illiterate

.

I am a dunce

If you want to call it that

I cannot read or write

Why I have the dunce’s hat

.

I’m different, maybe

If you like

I’ll have to get through it

I’ll have to fight

.

Exams, well I failed

Highest I got was a C

Unfortunately it wasn’t enough

No qualifications for me

.

The day my son noticed

Mum read better than me

The day I revealed

This flaw I had in me

.

You see, I was not stupid, nor lazy

No, it wasn’t the case

But the kids would laugh

It was out of place

.

Dyslexia, disabilities,

Names that we hear

Spelling, grammar, hell

These are words that I fear

.

I may be different

It doesn’t mean I cannot succeed

I am proud to be me

Mark my words, take heed

My lost doggie

.

Oh where oh where

Could my little dog be?

Oh where could you be?

.

He’s little and white

And very light

Oh where oh where is he?

.

I’ve looked for miles

For whiles and whiles

He is nowhere to be found

.

He’s got a little bow

That sways to and fro

Oh where oh where could you be?

.

Into the park

And I hear a dog bark

Oh is it? Could it be?

.

I look all around

My dog I have found

With a branch under a tree.

Run for cover

.

What is that noise?

Choppers on approach

Panic stricken

Take cover like a roach

.

Overhead now,

hovering still

That dirty beast

Contemplating the kill

.

There it goes

That dark heavy mass

See it plummet to the ground

What a blast!

.

It leaves its chaos

As it flies away

Screams, yelling

Where the kids normally play

.

Deafening numbness

Everything so loud

Smell of chlorine

Poisonous cloud

.

People stumbling

Gasping for air

Vomiting violently

People scared

.

I cannot breath

Coughing uncontrollably

Grating at my eyes

Collapsing fatally….

Imprisoned

.

I’m coming to get you

Dont be scared

Intrusion my lust

Please don’t stare

.

Look at you

Don’t worry dear

Satisfy my thirst

Yes please, cheers

.

You’re mine now

Don’t wait anymore

Desire overwhelming

I won’t be a bore

.

You will suffer

Not for too long

Overwhelming trance

What is this song?

.

You will soon be free

When I decide

Oh my dear,

I’m sorry, I lied

Happy birthday mate

.

To my friend alan in hospital on his birthday.

It’s 3 am

My birthday

In a hospital bed.

This is where I have resided

For 2 weeks

Lie my head

.

It’s depressing

Just watching the days

Go by

.

The people are nice

Not many British though

Doesn’t worry me

As I’m moved to and fro

.

Inspected, prodded

Like a guinea pig

I just want to recover

I’m sick of being sick

.

I love when people visit

Just to say hello

I can talk for England

Or so the rumors go

.

My friend Phil

All the way in France

I can’t wait to see him

Just another glance

.

I must stay positive

I am a fighter true

It’s my bloody birthday

I know what I got to do

.

These people all care about me

Care how I feel

I need to get better

That is my will

.

I hope you get better mate, always thinking about you

Pet hates

.

Hello to you all
All my friends

I’m going to talk about something
That drives me round the friggin bend

Ha he ha, what will I make you do?
You don’t know yet, haven’t a clue!

I want to talk about, well, our pet hates
What bothers you? What really grates?

You gotta have some good ideas, I trust in you
Tell me what gets your goat, what bothers you

For me it’s people eating, making noise
Ahhhhhhhhhh stop it, your mouth isn’t a toy

Manners cost nothing, they’re god damn free
So please and thank you is a have to be!

Driving up my backside, well that doesn’t pass
I’ll get out my car and kick your bloody ass

Well that’s a few of my pet hates, now over to you
Come on you psycho, what bothers you?

5 senses of dinner

.

Why can’t you hear me?

Is my voice too weak?

I scream and yell out

But I just cannot speak

.

Why can’t you see me?

Is my body too small?

Do I just not matter?

To anyone at all

.

Why can’t you smell me?

I smell really bad

I’ve been here for weeks

I am starting to go mad

.

Why can’t you touch me?

Just to know I’m not alone

What I would give

Just to go back home

.

Why are you tasting me?

What do I taste like?

Free me from this torment

Please, finish my life
