You're Gay!

  Last week, I silently celebrated a milestone in my current job: I’ve been there a year now and for me, that’s a personal miracle. In over 22 years of working, I have only managed to stay in four jobs for more than a year and this is one of them. ...

Wishing the Week Away

  During the manic and disturbing events of my days, I wished hard for a swift end to this week. Sometimes, the week time drags with its routines and I was anxious for the peace of the weekend; desperately in need of the time away from the noise of...

Under the Influence

  What you were to me wasn’t real You were just imaginary, a perfect- an ideal You trapped me in something sweet and helped me rhyme And I grabbed on to it, time after time There was no angel- no muse or inspiration Just an...

Screw Your God (Because I won't!)

  Where religion is concerned, I’m not much of a fan- the rules, regulations and all seeing eyes don’t resonate as true to me. ANY faith, while real and true to its believers, is only and will only ever be words and stories handed down through...

Monday Mouthful

This post isn't going to be very interesting....nor will it be written properly with good grammar or spellings, as I'm not writing it in Word first (without that, my spelling is utter shite!).....this is simply one of those posts, where I'm rambling...

Nutty About Bugs

I know and everyone close to me knows I’m clinically disordered, but now I’m sure my neighbours know too....or at least, they should do after this summer!   In the summer, my back door is open and airing the house every minute I’m awake- that...

JUST LISTEN!

I don't usually repost other people's work, but this young lady deserves to be recognised more. As I have a few that read poetry on my Friend's list, I'd like to draw this blogger to your attention. Heartbreaking, emotional and very touching words....

Rat Race

  The grey bricks beckon and the hum attracts The whirring of the watched clock calls Along with the conversation that captures dead minds As they watch the uneventful landscape of walls In this day of mine The cold mornings cry out...

Plastic

  My god girl, what are you wearing? Your skirts so high I can see what you’re offering On nights like these when attention is low Have to get out there and put on a show You push up those mammas and it’s time to get on it Showing...

Watching the Plastics Play

  Many moons ago, I worked for a local football ground as a barmaid and receptionist. Part of my job was to check-in players and special guests and show them where to go on match days, and inevitably, over a number of months, I got to know the...

Sort of Sexy Tuesday: Not You

  A sly smile from across the room I know we’re going to be leaving soon Back to his- back to his bed Don’t need confirmation, I’ll take it as said There’s something else; Maybe it’s the familiar attitude But he’s not the same-...

Looking Through The Window

  Looking through the window I see her close to you and snuggling in Her head on your shoulder Your finger brushes her cheek and down to her chin A brief kiss on her forehead Your hand rests on top of her hand She raises her eyes...

Looking Through The Window Of Exes

  If I was to sit and write a book about my past lovers, I’m sure there are some I would leave out, more so because the word ‘lover’ was a lose translation of what we really were (and yes, I could muster enough for a small-ish book!). Nevertheless,...

Rose Blows: 5 Ways to Pee-Off Cold Callers

  A growing problem over recent years has been cold calling. We get around 15 to 20 calls a day on our land-line, with offers of insurance, scams and government advice- it’s become a bloody joke. When I’m working, I come home to a machine full of...
