Lost and Found

Carried with us into our futures Are our losses, They don’t fall behind. Kneading shaping and moulding us, Resting in the back of minds. Colour our perspective, Feed into our fears, Ever present, not selective, They demand of us our tears, And we will give them, if we are wise enough, And we need not … Continue reading Lost and Found

Invisible Illness

Tomorrow, I will be released from the psychiatric hospital. I’ve been here a month, facing down my demons and learning how to rebuild a life torn apart by a brain that doesn’t work quite as it should. My diagnosis is printed, stamped, and signed — the only benchmarks that matter in making something offiziell here in Germany. … Continue reading Invisible Illness

Seven Days Of Poetry

Today I woke up, Then I fell back asleep. Again and again. . For one week, I was falling and waking but not in that order. . Where am I, And what is this torture? .

The same happy vibes The same moody exterior. . The same passionate touch The same selfish needs. . A window once closed has now sprung open My heart still … Continue reading Dried Up

Anaesthesia

Nature had far more time to produce the diversity of life; with everything evolving from a micro-fish; the most resilient algorithm is passed on, creating a ‘core demographic'. Free from control of any outside power; protected by imaginary glass domes surrounded by fringe societies who are exposed to the harsh realities of life itself. Colonies … Continue reading Anaesthesia

Compromise

You are right; they are wrong The argument is oh so long! . Yet with thought and consideration You can get past this situation. . Listen … Continue reading Compromise

Crocodile Smile

The rest see beauty in romantic reverie But I see beyond your spurious smile Although no tears lay unbidden to your cheek Portraying the dark nooks of your memory Every minute you spend sauntering beyond those clouds I know misrepresents the pieces of your heart As I have also worn that face Trying to jigsaw … Continue reading Crocodile Smile
