Susie

Susie, Susie

What did you do?

You partied too long and

Now you’re Old Sue.

 

Steely eyes

Chunky thighs

Forty-eight years

Chugging beers

 

Explodes into a room

Sings out of tune

Cackles and smokes

One of the blokes

 

Always for a good time

Always with a crude rhyme

Famous is our Old Sue

A truly mad true blue

 

Riding on her high horse

With a dolphin tattoo of course

Right by her high g-string

Accompanied with K-mart bling

 

Yet she is aware

How everyone stares

Of her cliché status

How everyone chatters

 

Better to be known

Than a no-one

She basks in it

Not giving a shit

 

Life has gone too fast

She’s still stuck in the past

A queen of Highschool

Now of ridicule

 

Susie, Susie

What did you do?

You partied too long and

Now you’re old Sue.

Immortal Peril

How I wish I could go back to a time

When I was yours

And you were mine

 

To have nights of soft conversation

To speak our truths

Without hesitation

 

How I wish in this deep abyss

Of existence

I may remember your kiss

 

It has been centuries

Of clinging to moments

Tactile in memories

 

I have taken lovers since you

Lacklustre blurs

Weary at the thought you knew

 

I really thought you were replaceable

It was a big world

Now it is small and predictable

 

No, you have adamantly stood

Like a thousand year old tree

Your reaching further than you ever could

 

Am I to be cursed with you forever?

Is there more to me

Than my incomplete future?

 

To grow old, feeble, diseased

Looking back with you

Tired but pleased

 

Something that I will never know

Oh my dear

I can never let you go

 

All In A Day

Think of the paramedics

As they cling to the wounded

Batting off those angry and confused

By people in uniform

Trying to save a life

Elbows deep in blood

Returning home

Showering off the days work

Letting go of the one who died on the road

Brain leaking out upon arrival

Taking a deep breath

Deciding what to cook for dinner

 

 

Forest Cave

In the soul of the forest

Trees crowded in an ancient meeting

Wings beating against your ears

As the secrets I whisper in trust to you

Hang in the fogged air like

The scent of life and death on your skin

Give me your sorrow as I give mine

In this realm connected and out of place

I want to feel every piece

Every quiver like the deer

That is always waiting for something bad

To understand how it is you are here

A man that has walked beside the reaper

Since you were a child

Fear has warped into numbness

The acceptance of chaos

As healing as a fire

That rips through the forest

Enabling the growth of new things

It can never be as it was

Admit to yourself that nothing matters

Yet the sun matters to the canopy

As it reaches for its warmth

Reach for me

Dweller of darkness

Tell your story to the night

Rest your head on the moss

Let yourself pretend for a moment

You are nothing but flowers

Bursting from the ground

Pale and beautiful
