I used to have a shirt

I used to have a shirt

When I was 23

I looked good in it

Cut magnificently

.

I loved the colour of it

Blue matching my eyes

I remember looking in the mirror

Doing up my tie

.

It stayed in the wardrobe

For a good 9 years

I ate a lot of junk food

And drank quite a few beers

.

I went to put it on

To turn the years back

Unfortunately for me now

I’ve become a little fat

That hotel will never be forgot

I remember that hotel

Never seen as bad as that

Shocked when I opened the door

Gave me a heart attack

.

The bed was disgusting

Made me want to heave

Dirty with stains on it

I just wanted to leave

.

The air con was a death trap

Cables black and bare

Surely if I touched them

I would shock all my hair

.

The bathroom don’t get me started

The shower covered in mould

The filthy escape vent

200 years old

.

I don’t know how I slept

That night I was so stressed

My shadow danced with the shadows

My soul so scared it left

.

The morning I went for breakfast

Biscotte was all I got

Included in the price

That hotel will never be forgot

If it makes you happy

If it makes you happy

But you just wanna cry

You don’t understand it

And you keep asking why

.

Don’t stop fighting

You can get through this

You are strong now

Come on, one last wish

This is my life

I am cold

Nights on the street

Found somewhere to hide

Got nothing to eat

.

Don’t want to see anyone

Don’t want to be found

Sick of life at home

Felt so bound

.

My tummy rumbling

No money left

Got to eat something

Then I can rest

.

I leave my armchair

In a stone outhouse

To forage for food

Just like a mouse

.

To the corner shop

To browse the shelves

Beans and spaghetti

I help myself

.

Under my coat

I dart for the door

They try to stop me

I push them to the floor

.

I run back home

Shaken and scared

15 years old

My life laid bare

.

I open the can

With a rock and a knife

I eat my dinner

This is my life

.

My daughter’s dream

My little girl

4 years is she

Wants to be an astronaught

Would make her happy

.

I thought to say no

But what do I know?

One day it’s possible

How can we know?

.

Maybe for now

It is just a dream

I will not take it away

Pull at its seams

.

Such beautiful innocence

I wait for the next

My daughter’s dreams

They are the best

Bloody cat

That bloody cat

Annoys me so much

Can’t catch it

Or even touch

.

It darts about

Toppling all

Even that

Little stool

.

Why so scatty?

You might ask?

I don’t know

I can’t ask

.

Meow meow meow

He doesn’t reply

Just looks at me

Thinks I’m high

Pitter patter

Pitter patter rain drops

Cold on my skin

Seeping through

To the heart within

.

So fresh, icy shock

Waking me up

I want more

Can never have enough

.

Why am I here?

I don’t understand

What force

Could I not withstand?

.

No longer scared

Of this life before

Now to work

I will settle the score

Today I feel better

Today I feel better than yesterday

It is less heavy and I can make my way

One day at a time look after yourself

Think carefully about your mental health

Bloom for me

I love watching you

Anticipating the sunshine

As it creeps up its head

The horizon an orange blur

I feel the warmth on my face

My morning dose of pleasure

The shade shadows vacate

And the light powers through

And I wait

Waiting to see your beauty

All your colours

Your vibrancy

As if magic to my eyes

And ecstacy to my soul

For I needed to see you

Today

Feed on the suns rays

Bloom in all magnificence

Call the bees

With your melodic inticing nectar

I am as the bees

Subdued by your odour

Hypnotised by your posture

I allow myself to smell you

To inspire you

My drug

My love
