Feet scurry for cheese,
Hurry before reading,
No need for heeding,
Just release then meaning.
A fella down, dread, and doubt,
I prefer to be the second mouse,
Rather than become death,
I prefer to see it out.

#THE RIPPER#

Do yourself a favour
When he hurts you
Do not do fit a hug
My hands will be tied
When he abandons you
Do not seek refuge in me
I would have gone abroad 
When he despises you
Do not come for my live 
I would be short if feelings
My heart has gone sour
Bleed out cold and dead
My humanity's been shut
I have gone all black and grey
My heart seems to be missing
Emotions are long gone
I have accepted grief and pain
Sadness and misery now clothe mW
Love's been sent out of my window
When he abandons you
Your face ruthlessly smashed to he ground
Your arms brutally ripped apart
Your body gracefully cut to pieces, but by bit
When I think of you
Even hope despairs
Faith has its doubt
Bravery now shivers
Your slow and painful death
Is all I await
For I am the ripper.

Truffle, my gems are gone.
All bets are off.
Swan, water, ruffles,
Trouble underwater,
The fish will balk:
Death march talk becomes bubbles, 
They beg off, shot in the stomach,
Test nothing, swim to the bottom.

Lord, I spoke to God.
Soft, I sodded off.
Man, laughter, shuffle,
Trouble in the park,
People just forgotten:
Talking until nonsense,
Their tussles long,
Of consequence and knowledge,
Then replaced by logs.

Job,
Free me of what happiness was, 
Cartier watch, Armani galliard.
Can I wake to a crappy alarm,
Feel apart from country laws,
Contract law, writing Sir John
Condescendingly at the bottom.

If three is a charm, 
And I keep it with me,
Can I wake to live somewhere,
Where you see the stars in all their beauty?

Big curls, bench presses, 
High dives into the deep end 
Swim laps
Gettin' down with my boys
Hard drugs through the weekend
I feel that

Bike ride through the trees
See the colours change
Run flat across the bay
Just to tell my maynes

I'm bored, ditched lessons
I'm hitting up my best friends
But I'll nap first
Big curls, bench presses
Torn bicep and a bong rip
Yo, I'm good now

Skateboard through the crowds
Where the streets are paved
Eat shit, get scraped
I can feel no pain

Easin' down with my boys
Slow cookin' through the weekend
I feel that
A bit of strings, sum tings
Got damn, such a feeling
To feel that

Pretty one
Having fun
Full of love 

Joy in heart
Not apart
Like a dove

Please just stay
Please just play
Just stay home

Maybe Eternity is just a concept,
Maybe one day everything will end,
Maybe in a couple hundred years,
The universe will no longer be our friend.

Everything we know we knew would be over,
Can you imagine that,
City lights and happy memories,
Will all just fade to black.

It’s funny how we think we’re so powerful,
Yet we’re just hanging by a thread,
By physics laws that if one day brocken,
We will all be dead.

‘O Romeo Romeo wherefore art thou Romeo’,
The birds sing along to Juliets cries,
Is it so wrong to want a Tudor love,
Lived through 21st century eyes.

To kill yourself to be with them,
Rather than have to live alone,
It truly makes you understand,
The idea that a person can be a home.

And though some may call this type of love shallow,
I say they’re lies from a person who does not relate,
The need of a love so sweet and tragic,
United by fate.

To know of monsters:
They grow onward,
One grows tired,
Any failure untoward,
Monster violent in concert.

Even at a bargain,
Bartering culture is nonsense,
Gossip is gossip,
Commerce is commerce,
A monster concerned,
With wandering darkness',
finds himself lost,
At last he is honest.

A treasure full of dreams
A future wrapped in gold
What our indecisions bring
Within each box that life will hold

Hidden in the square
Amongst the corrugated seams
Is more than just thin air
And the light from distant beams

There are memories we have known
Within the box that cannot part
Like the flowers that have grown
Just to touch a gentle heart

Upon these feathers within a box
I shall sleep on them tonight
And to the ticking of the clock
I shall dance the angel’s flight

Says the label dressed in red,
“Never touch what’s in the box”
So many thoughts run through my head
Of all the moments we have lost

A field,
Jar tightly sealed,
Stature small, teal,
Familiar feelings.
Tired, field mouse,
Mired with doubt,
Steals from the house,
Who take from ploughmen,
Stealing from the mouse.

A car, 
Jetpacks to Niam,
Feeling large, carmine,
Looking down, similar lives,
but it's my time.

As she floated through the air
She looked down on all she loved as if she didnt have a care
Death betrayal and pain
All emotions that drove her insane
Her legacy she wants to instill in all to be better than most
Now she is her own worse ghost
You see she always did the opposite of all she said
To her but not most her most valued  accomplishment  is that she is dead
She was jugde by all as she tried to stand her grounds and be true to the morals she set
As there stare grew bolder and there words direct and hateful she felt death was her only bet
So she closed her eyes took the blade and stabbed herself in the chest
Praying that god knew her heart best
As the blood oozes from her white shirt all she feel is relief 
And now that shes gone she leaves thoses she loved with her beliefs
Everyday she graced this earth with her present she was haunted by her memories that was drowing her in a sea of tear
Her biggest regret is not that she lived but that she lived her life in fear 
As her body was lifed to the ceiling the darkness that once ironically consumesd her was replace with a light
And as she moved closer to the light it became so bright
There was a voice that she had heard many times beore
Telling her this wasn't the end and choose the other door
She heard the message loud and clear and vowed to do right 
And even on her darkest day she remain true to the light 
Because on that faithful day she died she really literary died however was born again
Not to live a life of hell but to do her best and at the end of her road know that when darkness and despair set in  she will always win

what sleeps in the forest beside the highway?
what lays its small head on dismembered takeout boxes and curls up beneath plastic bags emblazoned with ‘thankyouthankyouthankyou’?

does it give thanks for small polyurethane luxuries?
for the refuse it calls its refuge?

what feeds on the grease and fumes from the roaring mechanical parade? 
does it lick its lips afterwards?

what learns to cross the glimmering cement - first timidly, then wanton and triumphant after practice?

what watches?

what does it notice?

what emerges from the forest beside the highway, large and lumbering, to repay the generosity of its benefactors in kind?

“Don’t let me down”, now that’s a foolish way of thinking 
Response of confirmation, actions not in agreement 
Not very much Redeeming 
Like Pandora’s box you’re seeming

Like bullets to the chest, I’m barely breathing
Confused and in distress, was I deceived? and
Was I deceiving?

Were you mistaken by my distance and a lack of trust was formed

Or was my token of your trust misplaced in your corrupted life form?

Are you a demon?

But you weren’t demeaning.

You boost me up, 
Above the ceiling was my love

Like, not love, allow me to clarify
Was different, real connection
But anything more than that I inform you, I deny

And now I cry

Mine, your were not but all of you was with me
Or maybe me with you, that’s where I get confused
Mistaken thinking

Time, as more comes, you will fade
At least that what my research say
But I swear to god, my image of you gets imprinted on me more and more as I survive the day

Leave me alone
I don’t want you here to stay

Memories in my bone 
Fractured when I lay 

Fractured when I wake

Fractured me in my waist

Oh what a waste

A waste of my fight when all I care to take is flight
All I care is me and you changed that habit
Is that what lies are like?
Is the purpose damage?

If so you succeed because I’m more than done
I’ve lost my sun
Although it’s reflection on the moon is a pretty replica
You set me up
Trojan horse 
You lift me up
And when things got good you sat me down
Let me frown
Although I hide, that feelings sound
That feelings loud
Those thoughts clear 
These eyes hold tears
Those drops aren’t mild
Neither were my fears

So clear Ill steer for now
Others won’t be allowed
My voice won’t speak aloud
Not truth nor words of deep
Only traps for the weak, ones I couldn’t put out
They were from your slope
Your dope became my cloud
I guess it’s, both, hello and goodbye for now.

If only I knew before, how much you’d let me down.

Everything around 
is spinning
My head
can't focus.
My body is tired
and my mind is crying.

But I am still smiling 
because I know 
time will change
and the silence in my heart 
keeping focus
for a better day.

Trees of lime,
Dreams of life,
Hearts pleading:
Fields of rice,
Ears of a beast,
Bright green, to the eyes.

What is fleeting?
What is right?
What the audience likes,
What God would decide,
Like what is meat, What is me,
But I need to survive.

Oh, to forget,
Castle, all, 
buttered pears.
But what of man?
Was he even there?
Even one percent,
I wish I could share.

All art forms a certain length,
All on loan, and suddenly end,
A dozen eggs, A dozen days, 
No son, No in love again,
Arms too short to hug oneself.

I feel as if I double dealt,
You tell me what face I have,
Where I belong,
That you've already won;
Wet seasons among, many drugs,
I regret: I've already punched.
Call me a spade, 
But I do what I want,
And I won.

Speaking kin and fawns,
King et al;
Kings that become pawns,
Lose their powers,
Were they a King at all?

Kicking the twigs, rocks,
Speaking ill or not,
Letters and flowers,
Red like the Pinot Noir.
