    About an Anan

    Here’s a poem about an AnanThe most fabulous one I knowShe doesn’t even mind too muchWhen I run over her toeTwenty-five years of having a granddaughter,Now, that’s a special bondShe’ll announce to everyone who’ll listenThat I’m her only one“Granny” was a mouthful,But “Anan” came naturally,And as soon as it was utteredIt fit so perfectlyAnan has the best one-liners,Like, “I’ve met Anan before”,And, “I made apple p...  Read More...

    It's Their Fault

    “It’s their fault”, that’s what you sayThey need to change the rules in order for you to playBut what if, sometimes, you met them in the middleExplained your situation, to them, it’s a riddleSee, here’s what I think, you’ve overreactedAssuming there’s hate, you have self-brandedGiven yourself a label, that one you despiseNow you’re the outcast, but not in their eyes.Don’t get me wrong, there’re idiots in this worldShouting abuse, and to you it is hurledBut most people just aren’t awareSo, it’s d...  Read More...

    You say I'm not normal

    You say I’m not normal, but what do you mean?You claim I don’t fit in, explain that to meWhat you think is crazy is another person’s boreI am not an expert, but I know this for sureSo, let’s get back to your definition.I’m not a genius, but I’ve had a premonitionWhile you’re sitting behind the screenRanting about who shouldn’t be seenThose you call outcasts are changing the worldAnd you’re so outraged, you haven’t even heardBefore you s...  Read More...

    Hypnotising

    Take me away to another place and timeWhere I’d be okay, and on cloud nineTake me quickly, unravel my soulGet me out and away from this hell holeThis body, I fear, doesn’t like me muchAnd my brain holds life, sore to the touchIn a hypnotising state, I wish to beSo, I could escape and be free from meBecause wouldn’t it be nice to be you for the dayWith my troubles gone, I could say“I am pretty, and I am pureThis is happiness and I am cured”   Read More...

    Life is a Panto

    Life is a panto – a barrel of laughsBut untamed joy will hide the cracksAnd just when you think no damage is doneLook out, he’s behind you - let’s start the funHe slowly sneaks through the chaos and crowdsThe audience chants and, unnoticed, he bowsWho he is, you'll never knowBut he is felt most when you’re aloneRocking in the corner, you’ll get no sleepIn the darkness and shadows, he carefully creepsIt’s too late now, the spotlight’s been shoneHe’s within you, but the show goes on   Read More...

    Lasting Memory

    I turned good into badI pushed him awayI turned us into evil,No one's to blame.Family moments, I ruined,Those of liquid gold,You were never ugly,But the secrets were not told.So, here's my lasting memory,Come now, listen in.I'll give you real reason,The truth behind the gin.   Read More...

    Many Wheels

    I met a guy on the train today.He asked about my chair.“Tell me everything you know” he said“I need to be sitting just there”.He told me his condition meantHe struggled to get around.He told me he played several sports,But his goals didn’t leave the groundAfter imparting all my knowledgeAbout my many wheels.The guy asked for assistanceTo get on an even keel.And I saw a glimmer in his eyes,A sort of expectationTo help him solve world peace,Or some other revelation.With an unspoken apologyLike so ...  Read More...

    Dorothy

    Dorothy's a lesbian.That she knows for sure,The rest of life she finds,All a bit of a chore.She needs an escape,And the yellow brick road's the keyTo find friends that love her,And treat her equally.'Cause the Tin Man doesn't care,Who she likes to snog,Although he tries to look away,                                                When she's with that poor dog!   Read More...

    Truest Form

    One finger on the wheel,The curse was brought upon.But the Dragon had saved her,From the life to come.Maleficent was not evil.But, this myth had grown in time.For they'd not stopped to think,About the reasons behind her crime.The Dragon was mistaken,Her heart was made of gold.The King's, it was tainted.To the Kingdom, it was sold.So, Maleficent, she was outcastShe couldn't ever fit in,For she saw its truest form,That world was full of sin.But the birth of Aurora,Made the Dragon's heart melt.She ...  Read More...

    All Hallows Eve

    In the summer she covered them well.Her bruises, her war wounds, she did not tell.Nobody asked, and nobody saw,She hid in the sunlight, so very raw.But as the autumnal equinox came,Omniscient Nature sealed her fate.A vision of beauty was sure to emerge,‘Though, first, her demons had to be purged.Amidst the cold air, came the healing,Which numbed her pain and slowed the bleeding.Upon this relief manifested hope.A hunger to change; a desire to cope.She knew that balance was key to existence.As the...  Read More...
