Stranded

When alone
I’m not alone
My thoughts are in order
I know I’m unique,
With people
I’m lonely
Afraid to be myself
Scared to speak.

I listen hard
To the voices
Bouncing round
Inside My head,
But i’m too nervous
To hear
Or understand
What’s being said.

I seem calm
And relaxed
Though I’m shaking
Inside,
When the time comes
To sneak away
I will smile
Then run and hide.

True

A poem I wrote about 15 years ago…

True

First time my heart broke
Was after we spoke
About your new friend
I knew it was the end

I was to blame
I became an old flame
But my heart still froze
When it wasn’t me you chose

I would write a letter
To make it all better
Then deliver it drunk
That’s how low I sunk

Never lost so many tears
In a space of a year
When life with a red
Was alive and then dead

Not to sound preachy
But when life seems peachy
Dont let them go
And leave your heart with a hole
