Some wise words from a wise friend

Listen, anything in your life that is worth it
will come in the form of a question mark.
You know? It won't come easy if it's good,
nothing good comes as a fullstop.

Sometimes you may come across
a comma, letting you draw breath before
you get back into life.

Take deep breaths, take deep breaths
and keep hope. Be patient.

I love lazy Saturdays with my peeps


Valentine's anti-poem by my other half

Roses are red
Cocaine is white
If i didnt have work I'd head to cy on a flight

Roses are red
Your body is hot
If I could see you right now
I'd jump your bones on the spot

Roses are red
Your coffee date is boring
Hurry up and talk to me
Or I'll be snoring



The Promise

Hi Mark,

I'm at work and it's one of those days
when I should be working hard to meet the deadlines
but I'm sitting on a space-rock orbiting the earth

It's cool up here - there's a stillness you can't find down in Earth.
It's so quiet and peaceful I can see my thoughts coming out of my head in colourful processions,
floating in front of me, letters wriggling and stretching and blinking at their sudden birth.

It's great- some come out with an explosion,
and I have to reach out and grab them before they shoot away in space forever.
Some need pushing out of my head like a stubborn baby
that doesnt want to be born;

some even bite on their way out, bringing a sting and a tear to my eyes.

And then again, some of them come out dancing, letters almost prancing and skipping like some happy princess,
or proudly, on some ancient greek warrior's goodwinded ship
riding the sea to battle.

And some yet tiptoe, not to upset
the status quo
and order,
as if …
