I have a doctor named Bill
I visit when feeling ill
He prescribes lotions
Copious pills and potions
That made me feel worse still...

Where beauty leads,
Less favoured will follow,
A lovely face feeds
Our aesthetic needs,
But ungracious words are too hard to swallow....

NHS CUT BACKS 4
The NHS has plans to save money
Which ENT consultants won’t follow
They won’t hear of budget cuts
They think the plans quite shallow
Which have got up there noses
And they find them hard to swallow

To the No Weight Loser

When diet pills and exercise
fail to trim you down to size
look on the brighter side:
You were meant to be wide.
If that conclusion’s too hard to swallow
change your mirrors from wide to narrow.

Lessons in life are not always easy to follow Sometimes go against the grain, in pity we wallow Then it all becomes clear We get knocked on our rear Hiding in plain sight, truth can be hard to swallow

Shedding
The clouds parted
and the stars have left
The seas dried
and all there is
is land
The burnt out sun
a hole where it once was born
The air is oh too
hard to swallow
And shadows idle
in missing light
where defeat has no fight...

Deviant Urges
Deeply rooted dark desires
of every deviant sexual urge,
divine and unconscionably 
naughty primordial  nuances
of sensuality unscrupulously
played out in dreamt midnight
rendezvous or reality if you dare...

it's not so hard to swallow...

a lone loof
through so many slamming bangs
on the other side of that barricaded
locked closet door my tongue has bled dry
from pain too hard to swallow
face to the wind sweet winged dreamer
rise and soar in freedom
savor the knowledge of choice 
enjoy the precious moments of too short
flight

Words are easy
Words are cheap
Hard to swallow
With tongue in cheek

A clap for wonder
A clap of praise
Left to wander
An endless maze

Broken promise
Broken trust
Words hid under
Flaky crusts

Crush the honour
Hush the scream
Take the objects
Please leave the dreams.

Equal Opportunity
The price to have to pay;
The rules we have to follow;
It all sounds so cliche,
It’s all so hard to swallow.

Equal opportunity for all;
The untruth of society, 
Now we are talking about a wall;
To cause all sorts of anxiety.

Rich man, poor man;
That is all it is about;
Is this the plan;
Equal opportunity, I do doubt.

Happy Snowflake Pretty Dance
At the first sign of life
Pull the plug
Why should it begin at birth
Why not conception
It is hard to swallow wisdom
Reason gets in the way of thinking
Do you have something for indigestion
And thirst for knowledge my savage friend
Something sharp and penetrating
A quick easy fix to take a life
Take it happy snow flake pretty
Dancing with a knife...

My drug hard to swallow
You were my one and only drug bottled
The label said 5000 miligrams of volite
The suggested use was choke one down
with a side of frustration to follow
The warning label said don't take with alcohol
or it'll send you into a mind numbing wallow
Taken daily it'll help you overall
This relationship won't feel so hollow
I'll  have to take one again tomorrow

     I tried to drown my sorrows, but they learned to swim.  Which taught me you can't run, you can't hide from our less than perfect side.  Even though the dog paddle is all you know.  Try hard to swallow your pride.  Because sorrow is along for the ride.  Sorrow teaches us to realize and appreciate the times that don't bring tears to our eyes~~Blessings  Catfish      3/17/2014...

On the Stars
I'm getting high
On the stars
Downing the moon
Like a pill 
Hard to swallow
Need a bigger
Glass of milk
Because
The Swiss cheese
Is too hollow,
Skimming along
The ocean blue;
The water is cool
Find the lighthouse
By the ocean's shore,
As I sink into this coma,
Carry me deep
Into your slumber
And wrap your arms
My sweetest drug,
In the dark of night
Sleep come
Before the sunrise
Be it late than never......

Romancing a Dream....
Bemused my thoughts,they dance of you
perchance a ruse of fantasies hue's
color excite this dreamy haze
clouded vision...traveled maze

Chart the path that I may follow
touch untouched is hard to swallow
hungered tryst must not denye
enjoy the feast within' your eye's

Captured now within' your stare
into your hands of loving care
attracted hearts as magnetism
fullfilling lifes romanticism......

Parkies
Why do you stare .....
Stare at me?
Step a little closer
then you might just see.
Was it my shuffling?
That made you look fast
or was it my stumbling
when I walked past?
Whichever it was,
I truly don't care.
Walk a mile in my shoes,
I beg you, I dare.
I shake and stumble
with every move I make.
Hard to swallow ....
these pills I take.
For I have Parkinsons,
yes, it's true
but, as rude as you are,
I wouldn't wish it on you!...

Trying and trying...
  I've been crying and crying..
     stop the lying and lying..
losing and losing...
  I keep choosing and choosing...
     confusing and confusing...

missing and missing...
   no more kissing and kissing...
     I keep wishing and wishing...
sorrow and sorrow...
   not tomorrow...tomorrow...
     hard to swallow and swallow...

The Song of Her Non Blossoms
She walks upon the seeds
That should have been planted
And cultivated as her life
Only small, dried, would-have-been
Blossoms all strewn along this dusty 
Narrow path of stones and somber memories
Spiked with resolution 
She picks up the non-blossoms
And packs them up in a pretty
Treasure box
She keeps it in the darkest corner
Of her closet
And remembers them each day
She chokes on them
And they cut her throat
With their hard to swallow truths

Premium Member Midnight Poem
bring forth the midnight star
let me wish upon her shine
grant me her love
let us entwine
blow me a bubble
and replace the moon
glimmer and shimmer
hope is wallow
hard to swallow
the bitterness
of bad wine
in early dawn birds chirp
the air is subtle
dew embraces my feet
is dark the realm of dreams
shadows sway
day warms
twinkle stars smiling
scrambled eggs in bacon grease
ketchup on the table
which realm is living
reach for sleep
do i see myself beyond

Hollow
I hang my head a dripping tear, you pull away ,
         The lonliness , my only fear
I'm feeling shallow and so hollow ,
the feelings I have so hard to swallow .
A twisted heart my broken mind,
   I am the pain that's been refined.
My sadness brews like no tomorrow .
filling my veins  so full of sorrow.
   I'm blacking out  or so it seems,
it's like a needle so full of dreams..
