New work

Please go away

This pain

Pulsing through my head

Throbbing angrily

As if it were a drum

Every pound

Vibrating me


As I struggle to stand straight

Even focusing is too hard

My thumb and index posed

Trying to sooth


Why won’t it stop?

What did I do this time?

Medication inutile

Nothing can make it better

Hours pass by

But this unwelcome guest

Will not get the hint


Fuck off

As if it were the last guest

That will not get the hint

Forever overstaying their welcome

Did I ask you to come?


Please leave

Pity me

Please go away


New work

Dieting is tough

I used to be a skinny twig

I hated me so much

If you’d put two fingers on me

I’d fall with that touch


I always wanted muscles

To be attractive to girls

I even drank those protein shakes

Hoping my muscles would swell


I gave up trying

And eventually with time

The weight starting catching me

But I felt just fine


Blood tests taken for the doc

I wonder what I’ll see

Only bad thing really

My cholesterol high for me


The next time it was better

I was so proud of me

Under control I thought

I felt almost happy


But each year at the docs

Another kilo would add

Too much butter and beer

Was making me get fat


Until the comments about my weight

Started getting to me

It’s easy how it sinks in

How ever meant to be perceived


I stopped eating mornings

Going through to lunch

Not even a snack for me

A little sugar crunch


It’s been a month now

My trousers keep falling

I hope it’s really true

I haven’t started stalling


It’s funny how a little word

Can get to you so much

Disorder can install itself

Dieting is rough

New work

Save your tears for someone who cares

Save your tears for someone who cares

This life we live, the wounds it bares

It slices our flesh to the state of no repair

Our social capacity as people stare

We are but an exhibit for others to watch

As they judge and point and laugh a lot

We are not what we should be in their eyes

Was it really such a surprise?

As we hurt ourselves, our heart and soul

Just fitting in, paying with our souls

Breathing the gasses of poisonous lies

From politicians with money in their eyes

They feed the rich and fuck the poor

Then hold their hands out and ask for more

And what do you get from all of this ?

Can’t even afford heating, something’s amiss

We work to live and to pay our debts

Until we’re old, finished and inept

To pay for our lives to make the world go round

Sorry, are you talking, I didn’t hear a sound

depression · Life · New work

They’ve had it

They’ve had it

Them there

Stop looking

Don’t stare

Don’t touch

Not them

Look at them

No friends

All alone

Looking ill

Coughing now

Needs some pills

Walk on by

Turn blind eye

There they lie

They just died………

depression · Life



This headache is killing me

It’s hurting to try to see

Suffering seems to be my game

As I cower at the table with pain

Throbbing hard like a drum

Hurting lots, not much fun

As I crawl off to go to bed

Try to escape from my head

Take my meds, little pills

Swig some water, little swill

Under the covers in the dark

Dog outside, hear him bark

I cover my head I want to die

Waiting for this headache to go by
