New work

If you only had a day

If you only had a day

To live on this earth

I would cherish every moment

For all it is worth

24 hours

That’s all the time left

It’s counting down so fast

Ordered behest

I can’t waste a minute

What do you want to do?

I will do anything

My true love for you

Should we make love?

Hold each other tight?

Never let go?

Glued with all our might

Why should I have to let go?

My selfishness powers through

I can not give up

My love forever true

Now the tears are coming

A breathing waterfall

I cannot stop myself

Cannot stop at all

Why has it got to be like this?

I am so distraught

It could of been so different

If only you had fought

Don’t you love me?

How could you give up?

Is our love not good enough?

Was it just too much?

Now it eats your body

Nothing but a shell

Watching you in agony

Your pain cannot be quelled

I’m sorry that’s unfair

What have I become?

But when I will lose you

My life will come undone

Please don’t go

Beep… beep… beep………………

Goodbye my darling

You can go to sleep

It started with a cough

He started his day

As he always would

He laced his shoes

And ran through the woods

He listened to music

And felt the breeze

Passing through

The towering trees

On returning home

He panted much

He couldn’t understand

Why it hurt so much?

He thought nothing of it

And shrugged it off

He ran a bath

And washed the sweat off

Kissing his wife

Then his two kids

Not to wake them

God forbid

Ready for work

He got in the car

He coughed hard

And saw stars

He arrived at work

Feeling weird

Dazed and tired

He started to fear

He collapsed on the floor

The others came

Call an ambulance

He is in pain

The ambulance arrived

In their gear

Spaceman suits

Ordering people clear

Took away

Everybody out

Cordoned off

People shout

To the hospital

This poor guy

Can hardly breathe

He can only lie

Put in a bed

Examined, scared

No one close

To love or care

Feeling weak

He can hardly move

Crying now

What can he do?

Put on oxygen

Case getting worse

Family told

They have been cursed

He slips away

To a final sleep

Forgetting family

As they weep

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.

Haunting inheritance

You are waiting here

For when I’ll die

You want my house

That time to go by

For the moment you stay

Watching from afar

Imagaging putting my coins

Into your jar

But I am dying

And you never cared

Where are you

In my moments most scared

You’ll be happy when I’m gone

So you can paw

Over my closest possessions

With your claws

I’ll come back

Dont you worry

I’ll haunt your ass

And make you sorry

Unjust


A cold wet morning

Masked whispering

As I study the clouds

Rain tickles my face

As I take in the emotions

The bells begin to echo

And slowly they approach

Followed by loved ones

Emotions overpowering

Tears weeping

As brothers work together

Friends with reddened eyes

Children in silence

So brave, quietly crying

What must they be feeling?

So young to have lost

So unfair

So unjust

Killed by a kamikaze

I didn’t see you coming

Waiting for me, pondering

I am just minding my own business

Before you meet me with your viciousness

I’m thinking of my partner, wife or child

Not knowing what will happen, all the while

Of what you have in store for me

Screams I hear, people flee

Crashing vehicle, carnage ensues

Killing machine, whomever you choose

And then the moment arrives

You are there with a knife

What are you going to do with that knife

Oh the pain I feel, oh my life

I fall to the floor, a crimson mess

Crying in pain, calling with distress

Blood filling my mouth, feeling weak

Crawling along the ground, cannot speak

My final moments, thinking of my life

Killed by a kamikaze, with a knife.

When

Constanty I think of you

I just don’t know what to do

You were my soul, torn away

I cry and cry, here I lay.

.

Taken from me, in a flash

I beg for you, please come back

The empty space, next to me

Your fading smell, comforting.

.

Anger and pain ravishing

Could not even help, nothing

Holding you close, final breath

You couldn’t fight, nothing left.

.

I collapsed there, on the floor

Couldn’t do it anymore

It was just too much to bare

Never had I been so scared.

.

All would change forevermore

Never to be like before

A life to turn on its head

Stopping abrupt, cold like lead.

.

Final moments with them now

To say goodbye, question how

Say nothing, remember them

Think just how it was, back when.

depression · Iambic Pentometer

Please help

I feel so empty, I cannot describe

It’s a mess, this thing that I call a life.

It’s eating away at me, black inside

Destroying me, controlling as I slide.

Down to the blackest depths, clouds all around

Impossible to see or make a sound.

Coughing out loud, I’ve suffered for so long

Crimson fills my hands, something must be wrong.

Pointless, destitute, feelings that one has

Exhaling smoke, cold reflecting on past.

Friends, what are they? Absent in time of need

Always there for a handout, with their greed.

Unneeded scum, better off that I’m dead

At least I have no shame, hanging my head.

Never mind

.

Never mind

It’s not that bad

No need to be sad

Be a little rad

Never mind

Life goes on

You could sing a song

Or just sing along

Never mind

No regrets

Place your bets

Don’t get wet

Never mind

It’s dark in there

You must beware

I hope you don’t scare

Never mind

You didn’t mean it

Not even a little bit

Just in the shit

Never mind

He’ll get up

With a bit of luck

Ok, maybe you’re fucked
