No Fun

No fun.
This really is no fun.
I hope it’ll start going away.
Find something to numb the brain.

Hope it goes away,
Because this is really no fun,
Thinking I’m going to do something
I haven’t done in years.
This is no fun,
So I’ll stop right here.

I Dreamed A Dream

I dreamed a dream
That we were together
And it made me happy.

I dreamed a dream
That it was you and I
And it made me smile.

I dreamed a dream
When I no longer had to dream
And this made me happy.

I dreamed a dream
And it did not change reality.
Everything is the same.

I dreamed a dream
That I no longer dream
And it made me bitterly pleased.

Ophelia is Drowning

Ophelia is drowning,
And she is not afraid,
She thinks death quite romantic
At 20 she is already an old maid.

Ophelia is drowning
In a view for all too see
In a unrequited suicide
For a love such as he.

Ophelia is drowning,
Her faded fingers hold a wedding bouquet,
And the water fills her lungs
She will never see her wedding day.

We Don’t Need Big Brother

We don’t need Big Brother.
We don’t need to watch other people
For our own amusement.

We don’t need Big Brother
Following us all around.
We don’t need Big Brother
Watching us all the time.

1984 is 22 years gone,
And Big Brother lives on.
Wannabes and losers vying
For our attention,
Hoping for fame,
Which lasts for 15 minutes,
If their lucky.

What a world we have become,
When we rely on Big Brother
To feed us idiots to follow around.

Orestes

I’d kill you if there wasn’t
An umbilical cord wedged between us.
Gods dictate what will happen
If I don’t murder you.
The Gods dictate what will happen
If I do.

Everything happens in circles,
A cycle that’ll never stop.
Humans can’t stop the cycle,
But they keep it spinning instead.
It makes no sense,
But, nothing ever does.

I’d kill you if there wasn’t
An umbilical cord wedged between us.
Gods dictate what will happen
If I don’t murder you.
The Gods dictate what will happen
If I do.

Autumn Becomes Winter

Autumn is becoming Winter,
And as it does everything dies.

Autumn is a slow decay in warm colours,
And Winter is grey and absent.
Some of the redy-brown leaves sit on the trees,
Yet the cold chill sings a song
That could only be the Winter.

It is scarf weather now.
I turn my collar up against the cold and damp.
The Sun has stopped shining all day,
Now we see it for a few hours a day
And then we are entombed in darkness.

You could run to catch up with the Sun,
But you’d never make it.
Be left like ship smoke on the horizon,
Just a spot in the distance.
You cannot escape the Winter.

The Only Living Boy In Brum

Taking the train back homeward bound,
A poet with a suitcase in hand.
The people walk into me like I were a ghost,
They just can’t see beyond where they want to go,
Looks like I’m the only living boy in Brum.

Break a tenner into change-
Enough to carry me home.
I sit on the bus as it goes through the city,
See all the places I used to go,
They only hold memories for the only living boy in Brum.

Selfridges looms like a tower of golf balls.
Somebody climbed it once,
I saw the pictures on local TV,
But I watch a different channel now.
The only living boy in Brum.

There was a time,
That this place was the world to me,

Attempted Sonnet

You asked, “Why don’t you write me a sonnet? ”
To be honest I’m not very good at rhyme,
Ten syllables sounds like a big struggle,
I wouldn’t stick to fourteen lines in it.
So I’m not going to do any of that.

I thought about stealing lines
From some other poems,
But I thought you’d realize what they were.
So I write this in my own words,
So let us doth go forth with prose.

How do I love thee? Let me think,
Erm, you make me feel good,
You make me smile.
I think I make you smile too,
When I’m not been stubborn.

All I can say is ‘I love you’,
Because that is what I feel.

Angel In Pink Converse

She flew right past me one day,
My eyes must have been blinded by her light,
For seconds later she was gone.
So she must have been an angel,
I fell in love with an angel in pink Converse.

Before I could stop and say ‘hello’,
She’d flown away,
And I could only remember the image of
The angel in pink Converse,
My angel in pink Converse.

If all angels were like she,
I would glad die to join them all,
But could they be more beautiful
Than the angel in pink Converse,
My angel in pink Converse.

Maybe, maybe,
Someday she’ll fly again my way,

Where Has All The Sunshine Gone?

Just another face in a crowded sea,
Just another statistic for you to see.
Hold onto the picture frame,
Lifeline between you and me.

Where has all the sunshine gone?
Why did my love go away?
Where has all the sunshine gone?
Why did she go away?

Counting all the words
Within these lines.
Finding a way of just passing time,
There’s nothing left for me.

Where has all the sunshine gone?
Why did my love go away?
Where has all the sunshine gone?
Why did she go away?
