Poems

When I was a teenager, I showed my first poem to my father’s girlfriend. Her positive reaction encouraged me to write more.

Many are dark and brutal because that’s how it often was living in this world. All are written from my heart, truth and unique view of the world.

My poems explore:
Abusive Relationships
Culture & Society
Family
Gay
Love
Mental Health
Sex

Take the Stick to the Child

Wearing make-up before they’re three;
Gender changed five times before six.
The great free world we created;
Now the children hold all the sticks.

How Dare You

You’re everywhere we go –
From social media to mainstream press.
You’re worse than a psycho stalker –
Your desire is to shame and oppress.

Hypocrisy

You shout and point your young finger at us;
Accuse us of damaging the planet.
You travel the globe to lecture leaders,
But you fail to see your hypocrisy.

Murderous Lust

His dark eyes glistened –
My lips tingled;
My heart thumped.
The room faded to him;
He was all I could see.

Sometimes I Think About

Sometimes when it’s quiet, I think about;
I think about he who I once loved.
Sometimes when I’m alone, I think about;
I think about he who I once feared.

Rotten Family Tree

We grew in noxious soil and fed on dirt;
We yearned for just a moment in the sun.
Every apple that fell bruised and shrivelled;
Our selfishness ensured none felt the warmth.

Wet Dream Cowboy

While I slept curled up in my lonely bed,
I dreamed I lay in a green field.
The warm air caressed me;
the world sat still and quiet.
Peaceful. Free.

Bruised Love

Your kindness took my hand and held my gaze –
For the first time, I felt a man’s embrace.
I yearned to smoulder with my inner blaze –
My heart pounded with the sense of disgrace.

Fear & Lust

I spotted the figure of male darkness;
Surrounded by an aura of despair.
My gaze soaked in his masculinity;
God’s soothing voice cautioned me to beware.
