New work

Will you go?

Never good enough

Everyone screams

You’d think it was

A murder scene

No one listens

As hearts break

Realising all

Was a mistake

Told to go

Get your stuff

Get the fuck out

Had enough

Think about it

Before you leave

Upsidedown

Life upheaved

What do you want?

Do you even know?

Will you stay?

Will you go?

1. Rhyming poetry to change your day

My ex the ice queen

My ex, I called her the ice queen

My name for her because she was mean

She wasn’t always like that to start

But that girl tore my heart apart

A year and a half I wasted with her

We argued once and she cowered

She did not want me to have a life

To her this just seemed right

She split up with me Christmas eve

I couldn’t accept it I was so peeved

I took it hard, I left that day

On the train on a new way

I couldn’t stand it, the rejection killed

That queen smothered me and broke my will

I tried getting back on with things

So I took on what life would bring

One day I saw her, I saw her again

That girl knew just how to get in my brain

We studied in London we waited for a train

How she was so smug it drove me insane

She talked about her boyfriend running her a bath

Oh that smug bitch, how could she laugh

I’m over her now, but it took a long while

That ice queen bite was viscous, even vile

1. Searching for you · love

We hardly kiss goodbye

Talk to me softly

I can’t remember the last time

We had an intimate moment

Or shared a bottle of wine

To smile and laugh together

To hang on each other’s word

All this wanting

May seem to be absurd

We just need a little attention

To spark the match again

To go back to like before

When we were still friends

But all that being lost now

As we hardly kiss goodbye

All the time thinking

Why it is like this? Why?
