Angel Cakes & Devil Dogs

I’m not sure whether the idea of ‘duets’ (Writing a poem WITH another blogger) was one of HastyWords‘ babies or whether its a general blogging thing but regardless, after our duet (here) last week I feel I ought to thank her for introducing me to the world of duet-ing (is that a word?) So thanks hun 😉
It inspired me to get poetic with another blogger…Charles from Legends of Windemere So here goes….

Angel V Devil

Angel V Devil

Angel Cakes & Devil Dogs

Don’t you want it?
Aren’t you tempted?
I’ll help you decide
Just a little
Don’t resist it
I’ll be by your side
Do you trust me?
Then ignore her
I know what you need
And it isn’t that
Put faith in my words
I’ll never leave your side
Did you hear him?
He wants to trick you
You don’t need that kind of friend
Stick with me
Let’s have some fun
He’ll leave you in the end
She’s talking about herself
You know her type
Don’t fall for her lies again
She will lead you to fun
Then abandon you in need
Without bail money
Ha! Common sense?
Its a given right
To enjoy the path you choose
Take the risk
Just once wont hurt
Its win/win -you cant lose
Maybe you’ve forgotten
You promised you would stop
This is a path you left
Proud to cast it to your past
I insist that you tell her to shut up
Before you fall back down
You let him talk to you like that?
Sounds desperate
Stick with me
I’m more relaxed
No pressure here
What will be will be
Don’t come bitchin’ to me
When your belt explodes
And your gut blocks your toes
I’m sure your wife will be fine
It’s only a broken promise
And a decimated diet

Dead End

I was approached by HastyWords to duet with her…. Here it is 🙂

Dead end

Dead End

I sat looking at my hands
Wondering what I had done
It was too soon to be horrified
I was sitting comfortably numb

So many thoughts
Running round in my head
Too late to take back
The hasty words that were said

I have said sorry to often
No longer should it be said
I will just sit here a bit longer
Try to erase images in my head

Hit with mixed emotions
Pain, confusion, fear
Yet you’re the only person
I wish were with me here

Reality filters back in
I realize you are gone
The only road I’m left with
Is the one marked “DEAD END”

Lessons of your past…inspired by my thumb


heal? (Photo credit: atomicity)


All this recent grating of thumbs (see here) and talk of (emotional) healing have got me thinking of the similarities of the two…

With the initial cut
The truth flows out
It stings

In defence you cover it
To stop the stream
To buy some time

The shield comes off
Ripped off or gently peeled

The raw wound is exposed
You have to face it
Let it air
Allow it to breathe

At first it’s alien
To look at- to feel
You avoid moving it
Too scared to hurt again

But in time it gets easier
You adjust
You accept it
And slowly the wound Shrinks

It starts to itch
Reminding you that it’s there
To be careful in future

But it’s healing Slowly
And soon all that will remain
Is a numb scar
A battle wound

In time
Even that will fade
But its still there to remind you
Just less fresh

It becomes a part of you
A permanent mark
Of your journey
Of the lessons
Of your past

Cock Blocked

"No cock block"

Cock Blocked

My phone
Likes to cock-block me

Replies don’t send
To blogging friends
This makes me unhappy

Laptop time
And in I sign
To the wordpress site

A real test
It gets me stressed
I’ll try tomorrow night


Written as part of NaPoWriMo after a frustrating few days of my phone refusing to send any comments I’ve made throughout the day so apologies if you haven’t heard back from me for a day or 2…I am still here and I will catch up soon

Grater (Photo credit: teachernz)

Be careful later
With your cheese grater
Maybe get help
From mum

As it wasn’t great
When my grater ate
Half my fucking

The Dream

Such a short poem but powerful in so many ways – thanks to the RCC for helping me find this blog! xB


The hardest thing in losing love
Is to relinquish what it seemed
For even though the partnership
May well have lost its gleam
How do you quell the lingering ghost
How do you kill the dream?
