Her Picture Equals

Poison taken
Heart forsaken
Dreams alight
In a Night of fright
Hate enlivened
Dreams surviving
Body dying
My Eyes are crying
Beauty stolen
Days just roll on
Purpose far gone
Trapped by fusion
Mess of hoping
Drunk or doping
Bed in darkness
Brain a right mess
Taste of kissing
Love still missing
Anger, hatred
Life once sacred
Passion broken
Angel long gone
Stupid bum note
Romance; bad joke
Dead wife bleeding
No way healing
Grievance hostile
Pain not docile
Pointless sleeping
Empty weeping
Slow down breathing
Wrist is weeping
Blood is leaving
Tears are streaming
Eyes a-staring
Mind past caring.

~ up. Down. Up. Down. Life remains. As others laugh.

Escape?

Broken knives hover like eagles in the sky.
Bloodied wrist torn & sore.
Eyes drenched in pain
Heart sunk in anger.

I hear the call & stolen lies
Jestful tweaks of hate
Bloody minded you say
You know nothing of the volcano inside.

Frustration mounts in steps so huge
A sickness builds & throat fills up
Disdain for life, disdain for hope
Only solitude pacifies the mind.

A world of loathsome fear stares back at me
Hate & terror & those who kill
I’m tortured here by the control of others
Those of little wit & shallow lives

The blade dangles release within my grasp
If only eyes could focus on this shameful end
Then weakness of the heart & mind
Would in cave find sweet relief

Narrow cut & drowning bath
Water filled with crimson tears
Who’d care if human died
& man escaped by choice?

Oh bloody minded you repeat
With bullshit lines of ineptitude & understanding
Aggression held below the fakest manner
& poisoned spit withheld in cheek

Power told & chained neck brought back
Who I am to run off free?
That knife still circulates
Too weak to bring it sudden down.

~ horrendous bullshit & lack of power.

Tears of Blood Red

Tear
Red line drawn
Shaking, tremble
Passion
Sorrow

Paine
Crimson
Reduction Pulsing
Memories hurt
These tears are red

Silent breathing
Stickiness
Scarlet syrup
Sharp blade tight
Sadness overwhelmed

The face distraught
Distorts
A lonely night
In abject fear
Alone

The waves burdening
Sinking
I’m tired
Weary
Frustrated

I don’t know any other way
These tears flow steadily
The world is full of strangers
& the brain is a failure
Starved of success

Meaning devoid
These droplets of rich red blood
Trickle on white skin in contrast
Life is ebbing
Fading

The roses you took
& faces which steal
Achievements empty
change too difficult.
Eyes close & I’m drifting

~ full of rage & full of pain. A horrible night.

DIATRIBE TO DEMOCRACY

i’m screaming and I’m angry & I got rage in my eyes
& I’m fed up with bullshit & their fucked up lies
They tell me to vote, yeah they tell me to cast
They tell me to ignore their mistakes in the past
“Yeah, come on vote, c’mon, give it a try!
Then see if I care cause I just waved you goodbye
Or was that a finger I flipped as I opened the door
& took back this country like money & a whore
I’m screwing you up and there’s nothing you can do
Oh what’s that saddo, you’re going to complain to who?
Well, big deal you idiot, I’m in power don’t you see
& Like all politicians, I lie intentionally!”
& with that in he entered the door of number ten
Not caring with his riches if he saw me again.
Cause he’s smug in his world & he’s now got control
& he knows that we’re fucked, he don’t care for our soul
The system is fixed and they don’t care about that
The bankers, the illegals, the laywers, all twats
But scary in their power and their safe with their king
Sneering at the honest, hard working weaklings
& look at the ratings, look how it’s screwed
What chance did we have when you see how it’s viewed?
The Scottish minority who outnumber the rest
& the fed up true English, who the rest like to jest
& even in England, where the red came so close
The patriots stood up, but died with a dose
Of lies & deception, where the system cares not
For the numbers who scream & give a fucking jot
No need for heroes, intellects or brains
Let the stupid give out handouts to the mentally insane
Just let us suffer, its not like we care
We’re just fucking idiots, no you don’t need to share
So, here take my hard earnings, yeah give them away
Rip me off & fuck me, give to the weak who know how to play
give me nothing in return, I DO mean literally
cause I do ‘love’ the system & the rich men who hate me
but here in my cave, my hole in the ground
here I surrender to the stupid who have found
A way of holding me down, cause I’m no freeman you see
I’m just chained in my country, a slave of ‘democracy.’

~ 2015 – & democracy is alive & well. BULLSHIT. BULL-FUCKING-SHIT.
