Idiom
When my ship comes in
Come hell or high water
Hit the nail on the head
Lead the Sheep to slaughter

 Over My Dead Body
Let's cut to the chase

Idle hands the devils...Read More

I can’t deny my feelings for you they are too deep
You are the first thought when I wake and last thought before I sleep

I am trapped
Lost in a world of regrets and dejection
Struggling for an escape
But I am shackled between a rock and a hard place
With no key in sight and no help coming my way

I am trapped.

Flung into a world that hates me but...Read More

Cargoes of Folly Within Polly's Pate
Let go of cargoes of folly
Your imagination entertains
Unless you want Molly
To catalyze the increase of strains of pains 

You loathe to endure
In a bid to preserve the sanity
Ensconced in the mind you lure
To expunge the vanity

That invades the chest
Caught up...Read More

What I Can't Speak Clearly
Between a rock and a hard place, you will always be my tree.

You never were a sycamore, never quite an evergreen. 

To me, you are simply Willow.

Somewhere standing barefoot
in the sand, she thought with guilty pleasure
“This is the KORO SEA!” and
conjured up a multitude of story scenarios
Buccaneers, Pirates Parlay, Treasure Maps, 
Davy Jones Locker, Jack Sparrow, Ho’es
you know, those 
childhood things

I love you so much I need you...Read More

The City pits at night.
You can hear the quagmire constantly mobilizing.
The City is in quite a dilemma of all the crime happening that iniquity is a ridiculous system to maintain.
Nevertheless, the monstrous environment remains.
The crisis of revitalization is...Read More

As a child I was taught to forgive
In my family hate was a bad word
I took it all in 
Sometimes forgiving too easily
Yet here I am 
Hurting more than I can say
Because in my heart is

LETTERS TO ENNOVY
I've tried to give us a thought

About the issues that we're yet to sort.

Between a rock and a hard place you are caught

And that's why this idea I've bought:

Life's too short

So I wont sit back and watch me rot.

falling into love's cliche

Between a Rock and a Hard Place
I thought that falling in love was basic, something any fool could do;
And, being smart, I knew I’d be O.K.

And I really lost my balance right...Read More

From someone's eyes
Her abusive behaviour,
Between a rock and a hard place,
A mittimus nature,
To get one’s rocks off,
A riveting street credibility,
A stream of consciousness.

Her abusive behaviour,
A roll up fierce,

A figurist Rockumentary,
To fall foul of forward,
To make one’s fortune.

Her abusive behaviour,
Gleaming...Read More
