Wake up sleepy head

Wake up sleepy head

You sleep your life away

You dream of better things

Whilst you could have played

Wake up sleepy head

Life is short but sweet

Don’t sleep your life into oblivion

Go and live this treat

Wake up sleepy head

Don’t snore your life away

Get up and start the things you want

Create a better day!

blue and blue and brown and green

Between the blue and the blue you live

Upon the green and brown

The things you can’t see keep you alive and well and sound

Upon the green and brown it’s dry though moisture is in the air

Moisture is everywhere you know

But do you really care?

Some people they are bright and yellow and sometimes they give off sparks

Others like me and grey and mellow and are jealous of their larks

Though abstract these thoughts might be

Do you really follow me?

For I see things in simple ways

Though it is not for every gaze

Heed me well and you will see

What is it I say to thee

What is the blue and blue?

What is the brown and green?

If I was to give a spoiler that would be very mean

Hand to Earth

The daffodils are deafening in the spring

The blackbirds sing their chorus on the wing

The trees strum their roots in time

Whilst the bumblebee hums their rhyme

Though you hear it not, mortal men and foe

For you are away from nature and cause it woe

You drown the fishes in your decay

You choke the air as you ride away

You do not see what you have done

You only blame the heat of the sun

You can’t feel responsible for all this pain

You only think of what you gain

What gold lines your pockets well

What will make your stomach swell

And though you have what you feel is good

You haven’t really thought and stood

Beside nature hand to Earth

And realise all that it is worth

Anchoress

My tears will oust the flames of Hell

For all those people who there dwell

I’m an anchoress for all you see

My tears will heal and set you free

My love burns fiercer than the fire

My love is pure and without desire

I will heal your aching hearts

The power of God is off the charts

For I know one thing is true

I know every one of you

And here my tears will wash away your pain

So that you are free again

And into heaven you will fly

This is why I pray and cry

Snake in a tree

I am watched by a snake

He stalks me night and day

Watching from his tree

In the branches near where I play

He keeps on following me, everywhere, every way

Even in my dreams I cannot escape

He talks to my mind

I hear him quite clear

He tells me soon, that he’ll be near

But why does he want me?

This sly and cunning snake

Where will he take me? 

What thirst will I slake?

He tells me soon but also not yet

Why does he toy with me?

What plan has he set?

I am just a little dog

Who play by his tree

What is it that he wants?

Why does he want me?

I do not know

But I am scared

Because I feel stalked, will I be ensnared?

Is he a hunter and am I his prey?

How will the story end and in what way?

Is he a nice snake, or is he bad?

When I find out, I shall be glad

Because I feel strange being stalked by a snake

As I sit chewing toys right here by the lake

Why does he watch me?

And why does he say…

That soon he will come and take me away?

Away to where? 

Death and doom?

Or does he love me?  Will I know soon?

Oh clever snake, how appealing you are

But I can’t help but think

This is all bizarre

Do I trust that you will care

That you will love me, do you swear?

Or will I get bitten, like I have before

By other snakes who have bitten my paw?

I don’t know, but I like you a lot

But I don’t know if I can trust you or not

I’m a little dog, a puppy really

So to go with a snake, could be silly…

How will I know if I am safe with you?

Will you eat me? I have no clue!

But smiling happy snake, believe you me

I wish you would love and cherish me

I wish you’d wrap around me so

But then my life could up and go

Oh funny snake

It’s a puzzle really

Why you say, that you love me

Or are you just charming this little pup

So that you can feast upon her flesh and eat her all up?

Oh little snake, how I wish I knew

But I should go indoors now, before you chew

Though silly snake, I wish you were true

But for now I don’t know, I have no clue

Bye funny snake, I wish you well

But I have to go, before I fall under your spell

Should I let go?

I’m on the edge of the world

Wil I fall?

I am holding onto life

Like a fool

I should just let go and let fate know

I can’t take much more!

I am bored of monotony

Everyone has forgotten me

There is no leverage to keep me going

In this lake of tears I keep rowing

Like a seamstress I keep sewing, a new life for me

But then things happen like tragedy

Like a wheel turning around and it’s trapped me

Like a hamster in its wheel going around and around

Like a dog trapped in a cage within a pound

All these words are exhausting me

I should let go

What exactly is holding me to want to stay?

There is no play

I have totally and utterly lost my way

And dribbling words upon this page

Like some demented poetic sage

Writing this inside her cage

Locked inside dreams that won’t come true

Wondering what the blazes to do

Just let go or live some more

Maybe someone will knock on the door

And I will leave this solemn place

And maybe find again my pride and grace?

Until then I am hanging off this cliff, wondering…

Should I let go?

Fear

I am exhausted by your fears

I feel them as deep as my own

There is nothing to worry about

Courage you should hone

I won’t bite your head off

Or throw away your dreams

Fear makes everything, not what it seems!

Don’t trust the fear that is deep within your heart

Fear is only there, to keep you in the dark!

You are not blind

There are many things seen and unseen that exist within our world

Belief in those unseen to those they have unfurled, is mocked by the blind man

Berated by the bore, for not everyone has rich sight, many they have poor

I have walked through the dreamscape and talked to God within

But to say I have seen him, to others think I’ve sinned

But nay it doesn’t matter if I have sinned my friend, for I wasn’t too busy to see

The wonders that he bought to me, the miracles that set me free

In your busy minds you miss him, in your focused thoughts you lost

Never a moment’s thought for God and at what cost?

You could see him too someday, when you’ve quietened your mind

Be selfless in your search for him and then you will surely find…

You are not blind

The butterflies sting

I told you not to touch the butterfly

Lest she falls apart

I told you not to touch her

But you couldn’t help your heart

Now she’s broken into bits

She’s fading fast like snow

Because of broken dreams

You have caused her woe

You couldn’t help but touch her wings

You couldn’t leave her be

Now she’s melted in your hand

But you still don’t see

You are to blame for her little life

Fading and now it’s gone

You couldn’t help but touch her

Though you knew it’s wrong

You were enchanted by her spirit

You were enamoured by her wings

You really thought your touch was light

You didn’t think you’d sting

But I knew the butterfly

And her heart was made of snow

To touch her has killed her

Now you cry with woe

Maybe you are now a butterfly

And now you fly on delicate wings

Maybe someone will hear you cry

Don’t touch me, it will sting!

Poor little butterflies

Unloved and forever alone

Because their heart can’t take it

Their broken hearts unsewn

And people think they fake it

Though they surely do not

But to touch a butterfly wings

Will cause those wings to rot

Do not touch a butterfly

Let them flitter on and pass you by

If they land upon you – great!

But please do not make that mistake!

Do not touch those delicate wings

Do not be the butterflies’ sting

What do you see?

So, the huntress is being stalked

I see them in the shadows when I’ve walked

I know they are following my way

I know they are learning how I play

I hear them tittering and I hear them talk

About how far I have walked

But I amusedly walk on

Because they are only a con

I don’t believe what the shadows say

I only believe that they play!

Because why are they hiding away from me?

I think they’re afraid… do you agree?

Too scared to come and talk to me

Or afraid of themselves, now what will it be?

I walk on – maybe forever

But when I hear them… I think…. Whatever!

It’s just a child’s game to you

You enjoy this thing you do

No real intention behind your words

To think there is, would be absurd!

I’ve grown enough to know

The lengths that silly people go

To find amusement in their boring lives

By spreading rumours and lies

I continue on my walk

Maybe someday we will talk?

Maybe not

Why should I care?

If you are still watching from over there?

No business of mine what you do

Unless there are lies that you spew

If there are lies, why did you do that?

Have I offended you?

If I have, then tell me how?

I don’t remember our spat…

I was just walking this lonely path

I didn’t mean to fill you with wrath

I am just ambling through my life

I didn’t mean to cause discontent or strife

So why do you follow and why do you talk?

About me on my path and where I walk?

I don’t understand your mind at all

Maybe I am just a fool

But I am curious why me?

And why so interested you be?

I don’t get it, so I continue on

All these games make me feel wan

It has simply gone on too long

And I need to know, why me?

I am unassuming and I am plain

I have nothing to lose or gain

I sleepwalk through this life of mine

Literally just biding time

I’m bored with life and I have lost my spark

It isn’t fair, if you just lark

I just want to get through my life

Without any more cuttings from a knife

I just want to stop bleeding

I just want to stop needing

I just want the pain to go

I am tired of hate and woe

I live in the shadows for a reason

I have been burned by the hot season

No longer do I wish to feel

My only wish is to heal

My second wish is to remember one thing

What it was like to be happy and sing?

Is that so much to ask of life?

I’m fighting against the after-life

But I am losing strength and heart in that

The deep blue is my habitat

I just wish I knew the truth about you

Why do you watch this creature blue?

What fascination is there about me?

I look in the mirror but I don’t see…

What curiosity is there in me?

Except of course, to capture me…
