I Don'T Need You Anymore

Poem By Perfect Fool

It’s what I had for you
The other half of me
My whole heart inside you

I told you everything
I’d come running to you
You’d be my shelter
From a never-ending storm

But then I hurt
More than ever before
And you weren’t there
And I carried on

I surprised myself
When I could pick myself up
Without you, live
Without you

Be strong
For me
I had to be
To build my life

I have to survive alone
Getting by
Scraping the lows again
Without anybody to drag me up

Now I know
I'll die for sure
But I'll do it without you
I don’t need you anymore.

Liquid Violence

That which gives me strength
As the stream runs red
Pouring like liquid violence
From a cut in my head

I Am Not Made

I am not made for this
I’m not strong enough
I’ve often wondered late at night
What it’s like to stop

Circles Round The Moon

Tonight I drew a circle round the moon
This night I drew a circle round the moon
Through a glazed up frosty window
I drew a circle round the moon

Be My Sanity

From a low to mania
Standing watching, observing
Twisting inside


Come on, walk towards that light you see
At the end of the tunnel wait for me
I’ll be there soon, when I break free
From this world that’s holding me

Looking Pretty On A Sunday

Early evening the world collapsed
And the ground fell from beneath the sky
The sea blew sideways and rolled away
And the hazy sunrays crowded the shoreline
