This seat on which she’s settled is no stranger,
This road down which she travels knows her name.
These places that she visits knows she’s coming,
And every day, her life is just the same.... more »
Asleep, she was a bird, black wings, bright eyes,
She soared over clumsy buildings
And looked with pity at you.... more »
They were looking left,
She was screaming at the right,
They were up above,
Deafened by the height.... more »
Your angry face when you’re shouting loudly,
Your tired face when you’re closed and drained.
Your stubborn face when you’re pouting proudly,
Your hurt face when you’re looking pained.... more »
Slowly down the stairs
Walking, see miles before me.
Searching for places to hide.... more »
The Day she said “I Do” was the proudest of her life.
Her darling, darling husband took her for his wife.
She thought her life would turn around
She thought that she would tread new ground... more »
We both smile and laugh. We talk
Still I am not like you.
Standing alone in a crowd,
Empty and afraid.... more »
I look around the desolate waste,
Remember how sweet the air was. Once.
I remember roses and lilac no more.
I cry.... more »
Don’t chew the wallpaper
Don’t munch my clothes
Get off her lap
And stop biting his nose.... more »
Softly spoken, gentle, kind
Appealing to the dumb and blind.
Sweet as sugar to you unless
You wear size 14 or plus dress.... more »
Red Sky At Night
As you look around the desolate waste,
You don’t remember how sweet the air was. Once.
You can’t remember roses and lilac any more.
Why don’t you cry out, no one will hear you?... more »
Scream in the morning when she opens her eyes
Scream in the evening as the last light dies
Scream in the night while the demons attack
Scream in the day. They are back.... more »
Since when is it lucky to die?
Since now, for who could live like this?
Filthy diseased animals and man
Reduced to mediaeval practises.... more »

Whispers in her mind last night
Taunted her beyond first light.
Laughter ringing in her ears,
Shall she give in to her deep fears?... more »
A robin stirred on a deadened tree
Like a single russet leaf, afraid to fall.
The north wind rushed to enfold me
In its ice-cold arms.... more »
A whisper in the night, a pure bright light
Filled my head, sent my senses reeling,
Left me weakened, kneeling
My heart pounding, words resounding... more »
