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

I won’t let go

Proceed with caution

Read the sign

A long way down

A steep decline

Surely if

We were to fall

To our deaths

That wouldn’t be cool

Hold my hand

We will make it there

Stay close to me

Don’t be scared

We start to cross

That rickety bridge

Starting to shake

Over the abyss

Stay with me

Don’t look down

We will make it

We will not drown

Moving faster

To get away

To reach safety

Keep fear at bay

Almost there

At the end

Nearly made it

Energy spent

Then we hear

The horrible sound

The chords break

From their bound

Gravity pulling

As the bridge falls

I hold you tight

Trying to stall

I won’t let go

Never would I dare

I look in your eyes

That fearful stare

I pull you to the top

On to me

We breathe together

And feel the breeze

Safe at last

To continue on

Forever searching

To us we belong

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?

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

Erica and the boy

An angel was sweet

As sweet as can be

She loved a boy

Who hid in a tree

He would hide each day

That cute little one

Hiding from dad

As there was not mum

He would cry and speak

Aloud to himself

He would arrange his comics

Up high on his shelf

A to z

With so much care

Such precision

He liked to stare

Did this mean he was different

Maybe a bit

Did it matter?

Of course not you twit

He was so special

As the angel would see

She would guide him

Keep him happy

She liked his words

Oh so kind

Reflected thoughts

Taking his time

Touching his thoughts

The angel would sing

Feeding him joy

From deep within

What is your name?

My angel, my love

Erica, I am yours

Never give up

The secret garden under my bed

I never knew they could grow there

Such beautiful colours

A garden of flowers

Growing underneath my bed

Red roses with such fragrance

Mesmerising me with its blood red

As I breathe in all its odour

Such a powerful drug

Sending me to euphoria

Its softness cushioning my nose

And I am lost inside

The petals engulf me

Surrounding my body

I give myself

To the garden

Happily

Embrace the fall

.

Pitter patter raindrops beating against the wall

Breeding your might, oh how you fall

Watching your trickling, enveloping in mass

Tearing away, eating up the crass

Darkness surrounding, impossible to see

Doom impending, futile to flee

Why would you run? try to get away

Pointless to hide, you may as well stay

Embrace the storm, head on, you must

Have faith in you, place your trust

Refuse, scream, with all your might!

You are the last, the dying light!

Lightning crashing, alluming the sky

Clouds turning, storming wild

Chasms opening, raging hole

Embrace the fall, the end, behold
