Candied ache

Lips locked jaws 
jamming. 
Sweetened sense 
mounting migraine.
But sweet pain worth it.

Charmed,sold,taken

A Knock on the door and 
my eyes awoken
I stared at the ceiling for 
a minute or two
My bones refused to get 
up to open
Louder and louder I think 
it knew this too

Battle in my head I could 
barely think
I walked to the door like I 
was broken
Reached for the 
knob and lungs filled 
with 
matter,heavy and thick
Three shots of tequila 
was all I had taken

I opened the door as if 
on a mission
Nice polished shoes,black 
pants and shirt nicely 
ironed too
Tray in hand,his words of 
concern for my isolation
Danced out of my ear 
with obvious jubilation

One look was all I needed 
to be taken
By those luscious lips and 
charming infectious eyes 
too
Matter forgotten as I was 
lost in those eyes that 
seemed like heaven
One look and I was 
sold,one look and I was 
taken 

For the 'Taken' contest

Old new year

Yes it fits
That one fits too thank 
you
Each year I play similar 
lines
My brain must have lots 
of records

Merry christmas
Happy new year to you 
too
Each I say about similar 
times
My lips can't take 
anymore rewinds

Those are pit stains
Those are patches too
Each one I'm given has 
got similar flaws
Nomore can I stand these 
so 
called gifts

Thats Rebeccas dress
Thats Tonis too
With the old each new 
year begins
One day I'll say that dress 
is so last year too

Back then

I want to go back
Back to when I was slim 
and trimmed
And all I knew was fun 
fun fun!
Back to when I had no 
worries and loved many 
stories
Back to when no one told 
me my flaws
And I had no idea I was 
so small and short!
Back to when running a 
mile didnt seem like a 
chore
I want to go back then

I want to go back
Back to when school 
wasnt a task
When it hardly mattered 
if you read
When it was like putting 
through the hole of a 
pin,a thread
Back to those delicious 
yam porridge
That got you spending 
with all pleasure and 
courage
Back to those dance 
routines 
That had me feeling like I 
was a part of something
Back to building those 
sand castles
And driving mum crazy 
trying to make waffles
I want to go back then

Niusance

On and on she runs
Non stop as a truck
Blood suckers away
Lil effort she made
Didn't cost a buck
On her stomach
Then opposite
She swaps on with
Pitch flunctuating
Blaring on
I poke on
Nothing works
What more
Do I?
Slap!

Its still here

This buzzing sound i 
hear
Is it far or near?
Surely isn't musical 
I swing my hands in the 
air
Almost hitting myself
It seems to have 
disappeared 
No no its still here 
somewhere

This creepy sound I fear
Is it out there or in here?
Surely it isn't a night 
magical 
I'm forced into the cold 
harmattan air
Light in my hand I peer 
as far as I dare 
It seems to have 
disappeared
No no its still here 
somewhere

Pointless

Money got lost. 
Everyone screaming. 
What use is my input?

Aisle nine

In the best ride first 
through the finish line
Fighting tides with a 
patch on my right eye
Shooting taking cover 
from bullet and bomb 
clustered air
Floating spining and 
bouncing with gravity as 
my friend
Taking temperatures 
checking heartdrums of 
either plastic or stuffed
England Paris Mexico 
Newyork I've been to 
them all
New toy new 
adventure one aisle show 
off all
Aisle nine source of every 
fantasy in my sleep
The one path to whatever 
dream I want real
