Poem Thing: In The Half Light

Standard

So I wrote this thingy a while ago.

Here it is:

 

…In the Half Light

 

 

Dreamscape

Sleep is a bitch tonight

Howling through shattered windows

Making unconscious decisions

To clog the mind with preoccupations

Memories

Images

Faces

Ribbons

Blue

Cups of Tea

Black

As the night was

With…who?

Dark Brown Eyes with trimmings of faded gold around the iris.

Sitting in the freezing cold with a book so far away from the real world that it is hard to define what…

What?

Garish lights

Gorey films

Gorey; Grandfathers birthday

There was never substance in those little cocktail sausages.

Phallocentricity

Men are killing machines

Blue Eyes

Ethereal Bliss

It is absolutely hilarious that human nature has brought us this far.

Diversity

To want is to have, when one cannot have, one falls apart.

We refuse to say Desire

We refuse to say Dilemma

Sleeping Potions and Slow Motions

“Needs have priority over wants”

Third year Home Economics

LOVE YOU LOTS AND LOTS

Always the first thing

Bright Eyes

 Little Revolutionary

Still bent on changing the future of our world through buying pints of Becks

Blue Eyes

Not knowing what love is

“What if Alice got stuck in Wonderland?”

All too well known

All too well

Well?

If only I had the chance to colour everything

Inside the lines

I am so sorry

Ripped Seams and Recurring Dreams

Button Bracelets

Fairies with whiskey wings

Singing to the walls

Stinging throats

Chauvinist Pig

“Fuck off with your Kate Bush”

Cats with marshmallow teeth

Driving to the pier at 4 am just for kicks and screams

Insomnia

Spiral Staircases

Down

And down

Making sure all six foot five of the hearts last investment is still inAustralia

…weekly

Reading shadows on the walls

Reading shadows on library books

Just Reading

Pulling out hairs

Putting on airs

“I haven’t seen you in weeks, How are you?”

Starry Lies and Night Skies

Flashbacks

Bottomless glasses of wine

“You’ve raised the bar there!”

Gestures

Pig Symbolism

Believing…everything

Blind religion

Speckled night sky overGrafton Street

Shivering violently in high heeled boots

Warm hands

The perfect parka at your side

 Cold swollen excuses for lips

Silence

Guilt

Dementia

Replay

So Long

Brown Eyes

Flicks of Fire

No

Yes

NO.

Melodies and Minds at Ease

“I look just like Buddy Holly”

Amber Curls

Spooning on Alien Floors

Pretty Dresses

Living…

Well, Trying

Scaring the fuck out of each other

“Did you get home ok??”

Oak floors

Dancing shoes

Eat,

Sleep,

Breathe,

Music

Disc Jockey king

“If you play Animal Collective I will have your babies”

Close Proximity

Nirvana

Teenage Fanclub

Silence upon silence

Screw This

“…Did I tell you about my?”

SHUT UP

Blue

Blue

Blue

Slow Jam

Crossed Wires and Flat Tyres

Customer Service

Tits and Teeth

Tall drinks of water

Endless cups of Tea

Supervising Chaos

“This is the statute to life”

Thank you so much

For nothing?

“Hey you Xx”

No.

Yes.

Yes.

Yes.

Actually…No

Queens, Kings and Mitten Strings

“What the Devil has gotten into you??”

A little careless manipulation always happens at some point

…right?

Ignorance

Denial

Rivers in Egypt

Regrets

More Regrets

Counting Freckles

One

Two

Three

Can you still see me across all that water?

Running

Letting go

Loose

Free

Shiny

Looking through the pint Glass

Seeing

Playing Crystal Maze for hours and wanting to buy the soundtrack

Being a piece of the puzzle

…again

Knowing Love in a tiny Music Box

“BAMBI!”

Young nights

Long days

Filling in the blanks,

At last

Sunflowers

 Red brick houses

Aching muscles

“…if I had known you were back…I”

Liars

Thieves with honest hearts

Blackmail served with stars

Cross fires

Living in a secret super nova

 Fighting for your own…

Loving every micro second.

Peace Out.
