Welcome

Welcome to the Island of Misfit Toys Home for all the rejects of the good gentle girls ‘n boys, Where you see this hip that won’t hop; And ass that won’t stop, and a Miley that can’t stop. You’ve got your girls that don’t gurgle, Your boys that don’t bounce, no matter the hurdle. All…

Eira

She’s decomposing, She does so knowing That no handsome necromancer Is on his way to the great beyond to romance her.   She’s slowly fading, She’s tired of all the waiting And waiting fades to black Until the light returns its hateful attack.   She’s freezing over She’s blown her cover And a rather different…

Handfasting

Touch me in ways I can’t feel, Paint me in ways I can’t see; Talk to me in words I can’t understand- Because the only thing that’s real Is your hand.

The Masterpiece

Your body is my canvas and I’m not afraid to paint it, Make you look so good you can’t fake it- I’ve got my face all painted on And we’re about to have some fun… I’ll paint you over like the Mona Lisa Until the paper yellows like October And later like the boat that…

Inside the Ballroom in My Head

His head is between his knees and he’s slowly rocking back and forth and muttering about what he’s worth- I get the feeling he thinks that isn’t much and I’m proven right when he tenses at my touch and he’s ready for a fight and his eyes shut and his face is looking up and…

Universe

When I kiss you I can taste the universe- You bubble through my veins; You turn me into champagne. You’re the ink that writes every verse. Thanks to you, I know an infinite consciousness Like you wouldn’t believe And every time I try to pry and press, Pandora’s box is an unimaginable tapestry- As incomprehensible…

The Ballad of Alex Turner

Love’s not only blind but deaf, and some days it’s enough to make you wish the boys were all electric. And maybe he was a silver lining, climbing on my desire- but I was crying lightning the whole night long. Love’s one of those games you’re gonna lose, but you wanna play it just in…

Beware

His eyes are big But his heart’s so small Sometimes you look into his eyes But realise you feel nothing at all. . He’s actually quite tall, But his temper is so short It’s like looking at the king of love Before he becomes too angry to hold court. . And his hoodie is so…

An Apology

Love and Life are both games that I’m built to lose, But that’s because I don’t play by the rules. Because I don’t know what a tap to the shoulder means. I don’t know why everything is as it seems, because it shouldn’t be. But hey, maybe that’s just me. Because when you walk alone…

Princess Puffy

I saw you today Wearing some high-priced particles By Jean-Paul Gaultier You smelled nice But a blow in your direction would have displaced you Was it worth the price?

Little Lottery Boy

Little ticket to greater things Doesn’t know daddy’s on the outer rings Spiraling down to some deeper place in nowhere And by that, I mean from top to the bottom of the terraced house stair. Little Lottery ticket, Doesn’t know he’s in the thick of it Because if he doesn’t win it mummy won’t love…

Press Record.

I’m watching you watch him Like a broken record With numbered days. I’m searching all the cafes, Trying to find where it plays. . You don’t look at him, Not like you used to, When he was yours. I’m watching you Watch him- So what does that say about me? . In the corner of…
