Mirror Mirror

Poem for all those people who hate their job

Today my friend heather was complaining about her job and how she feels drained. So, I had a moment and penned a little rhyme for her.

I looked in the mirror yesterday;
I was tired, my eyes were grey.
Life and work is tugging at my skin
And dragging me down,
The storm clouds rolling in.
I love to work to earn,
The money I plan to burn.

Why am I here at the office chair
Way past the hour I ever agreed,
Pushing paper, from tray to tray,
Wishing my long day away.

Today I saw myself in the mirror I braved,
What happened to that girl,
Who had inspiration to forge forward everyday,
The smog clouds ate her up;
My horrid boss took my soul
And told me darling girl now, this is mine to hold.

Love Is

I wrote this for my friends wedding and thought I would share with you ….

Love is hard to define,
Like religion and God it’s something we can’t determine.
I can’t touch it to tell you it is there,
I can’t hear it to tell you it is there,
I can’t smell it to say yes it is there,
I can’t see love, it’s not a thing we can all observe through one eye.
It’s not a object or a tangible item to view; love is not atoms or molecules to quantify.

Love is not words to digest and rearrange, love is not for our hands to feel and mould to a clay,
But here today we gather to celebrate love, to watch love unite, watch love make smiles on faces and tears in eyes. Today love has a future in the hands of two, love is being promised and vowed.

No one disagrees love is not here but how?

Love is a stranger in the street,
Sometimes he makes an appearance out of nowhere, takes your hand and says, you were never alone, I was always here, you just weren’t looking, but now you see me and I see you.
From that moment it’s hard to turn away, I’m sure your moment was special and this day will be as special, even more than the day you realised you found your soulmate.

Love is a bond and a energy that words can never describe by the best scholar or academic,
It makes us silly and irrational,
It makes us very high and sometimes very low,
It makes us think that the greatest things are yet to come

Love is there for you through the good and the bad
Love loves you even when you can’t love yourself
Love tells you you are special
Love tells you that insecurities are a waste of time, love says I’m your best friend It’s says relax now, laugh with me, cry with me, joke with me, play with me, Love says be yourself and I’ll be here, Never look behind, trust me I won’t leave, I’m yours forever

So love is a more than a feeling, the word love alone doesn’t even begin to describe the depth that it’s felt.

So who cares it can’t be measured …… Because we measure it with the breaths it takes away,
We measure it with the moments that are frozen in time
And we measure it with the footprints on our soul.

So, here today u pledge together, although romance will vary through the thoroughfare and experiences will come high and low, despite the rocky hills that the road sure has for us, that we shall walk them together, never leaving the other behind, holding hands till the end of time.

London Love

 

I wonder if you see me looking at you
Because I saw you
@ ten to 9 waiting on the Piccadilly line
U shirt was done up tight,
ready for the corporate fight
I wonder if like me
You wish this would all go away
If the train could lead us to a brand new way of life

A day where are shirts are not pressed
And our alarms didn’t wake @ 6
If we did not have see the same old faces
Making tea and small talk to pass the hours in the day
I wonder if like me u wish the world spun a different way.

I wonder if u see me looking at you
Because I saw you at 10 to 9 waiting on the Piccadilly line
Ur shirt was done up tight, ready for the corporate fight
I wonder if your like me
You wish this would all go away
If the train could lead us to a brand new way of life.

The chains of the office room chair
Show on the faces of the morning commuters in despair
When the world is so vast
Why tie ourselves to the grind
The oceans spread out before us
like a blanket on a summers lawn,
The sun is shining on the future, I can see it now, a future where I can roam the world
And I wonder if u see me looking at you
Because I saw you at ten to 9 waiting in the Piccadilly line
Your shirt was done up tight
Ready for the corporate fight,
I wonder if you are like me
You wish this would all go away
Only if the train could lead us to a brand new way of life.

Laying in wait

I’m not cold or hardened
I’m just not sure
I’m uncertain of what love is anymore
I can’t touch it to tell you it is there
It is like a legend, a fable
A story told that’s fades like a wisp on the cold morning air.

I have felt it and embraced it
but now the feelings gone
Once it engulfed me, now it is a haze on the horizon,
sand shifting in a desert storm

I’m worried it has passed me
Rushing through like hurried bodies
leaving me with muddy prints,
Left is just a tiny reminder
That yes love once was here

Sometimes I crave an intimate hand
To hold me not for a second but four
For physical contact to mean something deeper,
something more

But I’m scared of the next person
They have a lot of work to do
I’m not sure I’m ready to commit
to being that person that doesn’t fit

I’m done with taking my feelings and brushing them down,
so when I hurt you
or leave early In the morning
Maybe I don’t take your number or text you back
Please don’t be hurt

I’m just watching my back

Shall I Wait…

The arena beckons me,

yet I cower from its call,

for what if I stumble and I fall,

what if I’ve forgotten the rules,

it’s been so long now,

I barely remember how,

how to act,

what to say,

shall I wait,

shall I play the game,

shall I let  the flood gates fall,

maybe thinking is the devil and the devil is a fool,

so just take each moment and forgot the rules.

 

Yesterdays and Tomorrows

Verse 1

I’m Standing here looking at my yesterdays

Wondering where my tomorrows will lead

Will the darkness stay, the bitter pill wash away

For yesterdays overshadow my tomorrows

And as the silence grows louder

The silence becomes a dagger tearing at my heart

 

Chorus

I’m standing here bleeding for you

I’m bleeding for us

I’m bleeding out all the love I gave

I’m bleeding

I’m bleeding

Can’t you see what you’re doing to me

I’m bleeding

I’m bleeding

For you stole my heart to use it in vain

I’m bleeding

I’m bleeding in vain

 

Verse 2

You said many things you said you would do

You words were lies laced in a loving disguise

And the mask has fallen

Your lies are in the open leading me to the door

Chances were had and promises were made

Time after time

Over and over again

The unknown is calling my name

The taste of regret running in my veins

All for nothing

You hand me away

 

Chorus

I’m standing here bleeding for you

I’m bleeding for us

I’m bleeding out all the love I gave

I’m bleeding

I’m bleeding

Can’t you see what you’re doing to me

I’m bleeding

I’m bleeding

For you stole my heart to use it in vain

I’m bleeding

I’m bleeding in vain

 

Verse 1

I’m Standing here looking at my yesterdays

Wondering where my tomorrows will lead

Will the darkness stay, the bitter pill wash away

For yesterdays overshadow my tomorrows

And as the silence grows louder

The silence becomes a dagger tearing at my heart

 

Chorus

I’m standing here bleeding for you

I’m bleeding for us

I’m bleeding out all the love I gave

I’m bleeding

I’m bleeding

Can’t you see what you’re doing to me

I’m bleeding

I’m bleeding

For you stole my heart to use it in vain

I’m bleeding

I’m bleeding in vain

 

Verse 2

You said many things you said you would do

You words were lies laced in a loving disguise

And the mask has fallen

your lies are in the open leading me to the door

Chances were had and promises were made

Time after time

Over and over again

The unknown is calling my name

The taste of regret running in my veins

All for nothing

You hand me away

 

Chorus

I’m standing here bleeding for you

I’m bleeding for us

I’m bleeding out all the love I gave

I’m bleeding

I’m bleeding

Can’t you see what you’re doing to me

I’m bleeding

I’m bleeding

For you stole my heart to use it in vain

I’m bleeding

I’m bleeding in vain

(Fade out ) I’m bleeding ………………….

The Grass is Greener

Hi, below is a short poem about always thinking things are better, in life as u get older you soon realize to count your blessings! working as a nurse I am reminded every single day of how lucky I am to have the friends, family and bf that I have. It’s important people to take stock and realize even when times are low you probably have someone to turn to. So when your feeling sad or blue, take a moment to count your blessings and your realize, that person over there may be richer and fancier or have things that you aspire to have; but what really counts is what you can touch and feel!! And sometimes like the poem says….. if you ever reach the other side, it’ll look different and your notice things close up that you never noticed before, sometimes life can be a bit like a mosaic, sometimes things look great from far aware but close up it’s a million different pieces !!

The grass is greener on the other side

The sun shines bright in other lives

The days seem longer

And the dark doesn’t cloud your fears

Everything is a wonder on the other side

Trying to smell the grass that smells so rare to you

Trying to touch the sun before it burns

Oh everything is a wonder on the other side

But the sun always burns if you get to close

And the grass doesn’t stay green the  whole year through

The other side may seem a different world but just ask that person

Who stands across looking to you

Ask him the colour of the grass today you might be surprised to hear what he has to say.
