Anna
Dressed in black
Can’t bring you back
So I cry in the rain
Smile through the pain
When I close my eyes
And I see your face
A bit of me dies
Because you’re in a better place
You’ve broken my heart
So I better fall asleep
Before I fall...Read More

Things Have Legs

Sometimes, I swear, things grow legs
Car keys, scissors, recipes set in place
But when I look they move away
To floors and underneath the newspapers.

I almost hear them laugh, or sneer,
 “Catch me if you can.”  “Look, over here!”

Homelessness
Homelessness  is not a illness, 
People have lost their damn mind with a bunch of silliness.

Friends of Wattle Creek
For many years, the creek, ran passed as a drain,
Polluted and unloved; a poisoned murky vein.
A favoured dumping place, for household unwanted things -
out of sight, out of mind; and no good what it brings.

Life was almost non-existent in the...Read More

Lost To The Storm
Drop me into the sea of dark.
Where my journey has no certain end.
Out of the atmosphere.
Of what I know was your hands.
You don’t need to cry about it.
I’ve seen this before.
I’ll walk this storm drain now and forevermore.
We’ll see about...Read More

When Her Picture Fell
Her picture fell behind the stage
where life and memories pretended a grave

An open casket as I saw her eyes
for long ago I bitterly cried

Under the lamp, the pictures sun
near the clock that mornings rung
by the things I use everyday
and things...Read More

The recalcitrant past
His sins, many thousands of them, 
Lie buried in the anonymous soil.
Over his mantelpiece a proverb hangs: 
"Aus den Augen, aus dem Sinn." 
On his shelf "Mein Kampf" is visible. 
"It must never happen again," 
he is quick to reassure...Read More

Surrounded by Sickening Self
I can’t bring myself to go to my room right now
And I don’t expect you to see
But my room is currently dripping with things 
That remind me to much of me

My likes and my history suffocate the air
Where my problems...Read More

WHILE STILL HAVE A CHANCE
While Still Have A Choice

You thought you had time
To call them again
Faithful close classmate
Long time ago friend.

Then you get a call
From out of the past

I Hate To Fall in Love
I hate falling in love
For love is wicked and blind.
And weird and wild.
It gets me hypnotized.
As though I was a sheep to be sacrificed
I hate falling in love.
 
Love is full of empty promises and euphoria
It is out of sight,...Read More

Secrets
Secrets every family have them
Secrets that are sacrate
Hidden away in a vault
Buried deep within the sand
Like artefacts out of sight, out of mind

It's apart of who we are

Secrets are like a treasure chest

Pharmaceuticals
Most people avoid her because of her heart.
One minute she is caring, the next she is overbearing.
The next she pours her heart the next she takes it all back and remains silent.
Too many mood swings, too many off brand medicines.

Shadows dancing in the corners give this room a supernatural vibe.

Drowning in utter pain
black dog bites
Once again
I can't breath
I cannot cope
Heading for the torrid gutter
via the slippery slope
Lost in the srounding confounding darkness
Where I blindly fear to tread
I crawl into the sanctuary of a shell
of my bed
A bed of nails...Read More

Sleep, Sweet Prince
I left a breadcrumb trail back to you.
There were photos, what was left of them
after years of handling,
Hiding them in the back of my desk drawer, daily,
worn and folded, and some in pieces.
Out of sight, out of mind?
No.

And your written...Read More

Children At Risk
Children At Risk







Every time I hear a child has been neglected 

and vastly un protected.

Parents and caretakers have the most important

job of the world,

To raise and mold a boy or girl.

It breaks my heart.

We are tearing the children apart.

Who we once were
Broken pieces of our shattered lives 
Are packed away and forgotten 
Like unwanted items in the attic 

Hidden inside a box that 
Holds the crushed dreams 
And un-kept promises 
Of more hopeful times 

Near the torn bag of trust
