Temptation

Poem By Victoria Annette Bailey

You stare into the eyes of your own resentment
When uninterrupted love turns away,
Ignorance blossoms on a Wednesday afternoon
Falling for desire come Thursday.
Fickle souls fight karma through the seasons
In pursuit of perfection,
Ammunition through improving criticism
The cure or the infection?
Denial becomes disorientation
The blind still fight to see,
Temptation race for the forbidden fruit
Aim for the apple tree.

Jamie Goes To The Tate

Jamie’s on Wednesday,2.30am
Breakfast with Monet at six,
Used in the sunrise, abused at the Moon
Taking her punishment fix.

Joker

The Joker behind
The concealing smile
Blindly feels his way
Wonders if it's worthwhile.

Ochre Goodbye

I was wasted in Montana,
On a return-ticket home,
I won't return to where I've come from,
And she's heading to Rome.

Just Take Another

Throw back another few pills
Close your eyes and rest your head,
Let the drugs replace your anxious friends
That you inadvertently misled.

Untitled #1

Walking home from heartache
In the non-existent rain,
Hiding underneath my hood
Killing time again.

Media Studies

Your frozen glance
Your icy stare,
Your taunting face
And charcoal hair.
