Harry the ghost

There is a ghost next to me

On this park bench

I don’t know what he wants

Or what is that stench

Hello Mr ghost

What is your name?

It is Harry kind sir

Are you a bit insane?

Why do you say that?

Asked puzzled little me

I can see you clear as day

Like the birds and the bees

No one has ever seen me

I have been here for years

I lost my life on this bench

Holding back ghostly tears

Were you homeless Harry?

I asked with concern

He nodded his head

They do never learn

What happened? I asked

Why did you die here?

Did you not have a family?

Nobody near?

Nobody who cared, he said

Not ever enough

It was the cold that killed me

My body had enough

But Harry, I said

Why can you not pass?

What’s stopping you?

Blocking your path?

I guess I needed to tell my story

Maybe it may change something

If it does not

Can we talk again?

Wait and see

Do you remember the last time you had to wait

How it felt, that unbearable state

Knowing that something was gonna come to you

But you have to wait, gotta go through

Maybe it was exciting, knowing the outcome

At the end, maybe it will be so much fun

Or is it a reward, for all your hard work

You should know, it has left you distraught

Maybe you have done something, waiting to fail

Maybe you are wishing that you could set sail

Remember the first time, when you bought a car?

That new car smell, feeling like a rock star

What else can we wait for? What can it be?

Well I am sorry, you’ll all have to wait and see

Beautiful moon

Why would you watch me?

I know you better than most

Although everyone gazes at you

I will not be thrown.

We have had many a moment

Just you and I

Your beauty overwealms me

Brings tears to my eyes.

You can be blinding

As you light the path ahead

There is nowhere else to be

Nowhere else instead.

As the stars vie for your attention

Flashing bright and true

You stare right through them

As constantly you do.

Will you love me forever?

If I never look away?

Tell me you’ll never leave me

And you’ll always stay.

Life · love

Goodbye my father

Goodbye my father

I got a call, I remember, I thought it was a stroke

I left that day, to the hospital, my heart broke

I arrived there to see you there lying still

I hoped it untrue, it was my only will

Then I was there, at your side hoping you might wake

“Oh god, wake up, please, for goodness sake”

Suddenly you sat up and you looked to me

“Who are you?” that feeling still sickens me

Then you laid back down, back into a sleep

We were shocked, we started to weep

Time passed by, agonizingly slow

Just waiting, waiting for time to go

I knew, what was coming, to me it was clear

Your heart, your soul, about to disappear

The final moments came, you left us for good

My father, I love you and I always would.

The immigrant

5. For my son

Sometimes I wish i could continue walking for an eternity

Searching forever for light

But knowing even if I crossed chasms

Seas and mountains

To the furthest reach of the world

I would never again find light

Because light has left me

And darkness will surround me

Forever

My son

I have only a photo

And the memories in my mind

If I was to ever lose them

Every time I close my eyes

I see him playing with his marbles

Eating his favourite food

Kissing his mother

Itching his arm when he wanted something

I still remember his voice

His sweet voice

His laugh when I told him a joke

I even miss seeing how he cried

When we comforted him

My god, you will decide for me

When it will be time

When I can hold my son’s hand again

I remember seeing those bastards

How they laughed

Down by the river bank

Pissing in the water

I took a discarded rifle

And I took aim

There were three of them

I could feel the air

Whistling ever so softly

I laid down on my chest

Out of their view

But close enough

I positioned myself

My breath faint

My eyes dry from the tears

I will make you suffer you fucks

And it won’t be quick

I had lost my family

My son

My reason to live

I focused on the one with his gun

For my family you fuck

Bang

Childhood · family · Life

Midnight, the bully stomper

There was once a young girl

Let’s call her midnight

She saw some nasty bullies

So she gave them a fright

Because when they were

Picking on a kid

Poor defenseless boy

Getting a fat lip

She said stop you scum

What do you think you’re doing

Pick on me

Try and put your shoe in

And this little midnight

Shy off 5 ft tall

She stopped the bullies

With her will, that’s all

Stand up for someone

If you can

If you can’t, tell someone

Make that your plan

Just because they’re different

What difference does it make

Help another human

It’s a piece of cake

Fidoodle

I have a fidoodle

Whatever that is

Is it a poodle

Or is it a fish

Midnight laughed so

From this doodle bug

Can’t stop herself

Can’t get enough

What do you say

To the god of fidoodle

Do you wanna fight

Or a spicy pot noodle

Can you pick it

Like you pick your nose

It’s a fidoodle

No one knows

Sunday night

I hate Sunday night

Work the next day

Kids off to school

No time to play

Is it for them

Is it for me

I love to have fun

It makes me happy

Now a boring job

In front of a screen

Tapping on the keys

Just a has been

Oh my little sweet

Get better soon

Hope you stop being sick

Shouldn’t happen to you

Our little ones

Isn’t it funny

How we watch over

Our sweet little ones

To be sure they are ok

Wrapped around their fingers

We’d do anything

As they suffer

We can only wait

And watch

When there are spiders

And flies

Keeping them from sleep

We are there

Is it because they need us

Or we need to be needed
