A haiku for my son

It rips me apart

When I say goodbye to you

Each time, I love you.

A prank call

I’m at work and the telephone starts to ring. Number withheld so I answer the thing.

Hello how may I help, I said. A brief pause then the insult he said.

I didn’t hear well so I ask him to repeat. The insult again, my heart increases it’s beat.

I think how should I respond to this little boy. What’s your game you little runt, this is your joy?

The little idiot has wound me up. Goodbye little boy, I hang up!

Always one

Why is there always one ?

One who you cannot stand

Who gets underneath your skin

Eats away at you from within

You cannot lash out, it’s not correct!

Be the adult, it’s him the pest.

Resist resist, don’t bite you fool.

Be the bigger man, it’s all cool.

His arrogance and ego will get him.

He’ll do it all by himself.

But why is there always one?

Easy life never was any fun

Life, why ?

Fate is such a funny thing

You seem to be made to pay for your sins

It was that i can’t understand

Men in power with their woeful plans

What does it achieve, what does it gain?

Apart from torture, torment and pain

Back to my life as you can see

I have pain and torment inside of me

When will i realize that i am a pawn?

Am I just a playing piece waiting to be worn

I realize now that fate is a funny thing

It thrives on controlling everything

It teaches us lessons, it gives us hope

Sorry i lie; it gives us false hope

Who asked for diseases, I can’t understand?

It’s the man in power again, with his woeful plan

This is life, c’est la vie

If you don’t like it just try to flee

There’s one way out, as the lights go dim

You have now paid for all of your sins!

Free books for all

Hey all,

Quite happy today, my 1st book is sitting well in the kindle free standings, 1st place in poetry about love and also 1st place in love and erotic poetry.

If you look closely my third book is sitting in 7th place on both pages too. You may be thinking why put it up for free? well, why not? at least it may be seen now. Its better than sitting there unsold or paying money to advertise for a loss on sales.

Please, if anyone wishes to download a free copy of any of my books, click on the link below:

https://www.amazon.com/s?k=Philip+lister+kindle&ref=is_s

and pick up one of my books Free or why not All of them, just please leave a review, it would be so nice on your behalf.

Thank you all, have a great day and be positive!

The curse of the baby

When you first come into this world

The nurse inspects you and gives you a twirl

You are then taken home and placed to rest

You are left to slumber and of course to rest

And from that moment there is a change

You start to cry and make your parents deranged

Through all the noise and the screaming

I think your parents would rather be dreaming

For this disruption causes stress

And their sweet child is no longer a bless

And for a reason unknown to you

Your parents split and are no longer two

Was it your fault? Is it true?

Was it actually because of you?

Tick tock

I am sitting here (Tick Tock)

I am watching the clock (Tick Tock)

I am alone (Tick Tock)

I am at home (Tick Tock)

Why so depressing (Tick Tock)

Why this lesson (Tick Tock)

I want to end it (Tick Tock)

To stop that clock (Tick Tock)

Slower and slower (Tick Tock)

Beats the clock (Tick Tock)

For i am calm (Tick Tock)

With bloodied palms (Tick Tock)

I have done it (Tick Tock)

Set myself free (Tick Tock)

Now i see the light (Tick Tock)

My clock has stopped, No Tick Tock

My eyes

I feel that my eyes are the key to my soul

If you look within them you will see i have many goals

For i am an emotional person and caring too

Sometimes outrageous, quiet and shy too

With their blue and their green they may look sweet

But don’t be surprised if you look really deep

That when you see my anger, and my rage

I vow to you that i will amaze

For when you see the passion in my eyes

You will be amazed and surprised

Because although they have passion, i know it’s true

Sometimes ignorance and vulnerability too

I am just a boy inside of it all

And my eyes protect my heart, just like a wall

Birth

The beginning, that first day.
The responsibility of come what may.

In front of you this life in your hands.
Now the new life, now you understand.

That proudness you feel, tears start to flow.
Overwhelming sentiments as you sway baby to and fro.

That funny noise that she is making. Your love at first sight she is taking.

The realisation of what is to come. The sleepless nights oh what fun.

It doesn’t matter, nothing does. Your a parent now, what a buzz.

Wake up sleepy head

.

Almost the weekend

So true so true

One more day of work

What will I do

.

Mode zombie today

Not slept enough

Got to drive to work

Feeling so rough

.

Can I go back to bed

Under the covers so warm

No you lazy git

Oh my heart is torn

.

Let me sleep

Just a minute or two

I promise I’ll move

What am I to do

.

Drag yourself downstairs

Make a cup of tea

Enjoy its warmth

See, isn’t that glee

.

Now begone you hermit

Move your bloody ass

What did you think

This poem was gonna be class
