Mary, Mary…

Mary, Mary…

“Mary Mary quite contrary, How does your garden grow?” “I live in a flat, so don’t be a prat, You know all of my flowers are faux.”

Decisions

I’m in a sticky situation, And I can’t make up my mind. Which of these paths I should take, And which to leave behind. The one in front’s attractive, But so’s the one at the back. And what one may have plenty of, The other one might lack. I’m not sure I’m quite ready To … Continue reading

Silly Silly Instagram

It’s a difficult world we live in; We’re surrounded by so many lies, And we use the technology we’re given To constantly compare our lives. If I stalk my own online presence, Then I’m rather surprised to see, That my life seems much more than pleasant, And in fact, I’m jealous of me. So remember … Continue reading

The Perils of the Jobless Woman

The Perils of the Jobless Woman

“WOE IS ME” I gasp and sigh, Hitting “send” on the job application, Proud that my CV contains not one lie, Not any false representation. I’m rather appalled to hear That I’m seen as a lady of leisure – As I don’t spend my days as a sightseer, Or browsing the shops for lost treasure. … Continue reading

#LoveIsland

It is that time of year again: We can’t make plans past 9pm. Our TV’s on, we’re eagerly waiting, Ready to watch some chaotic dating. The sun is out, the turtles are awkward, Coupling up is never straightforward, Their hair is perfect, their stomachs are flat, (But you can’t trust a guy with abs like … Continue reading

Misjudgement

Misjudgement

I am guilty of misjudgement, Guilty of seeing the good. I thought I’d figured out your flaws; Was happy that I had identified each one. And while they added up, They only made you imperfectly perfect. Don’t worry, I’m aware of my own flaws too. They’re recorded in my mind like twisted trophies in a … Continue reading

Roses & Realisation

Roses & Realisation

Roses are red, Sunflowers are yellow. You came across As a charming fellow. Your gestures were grand, Your sweet-talk was slick, But I finally see now, You’re a bit of a pri  –  mative human being.

We’re living in a world of deception, Surrounded by embellished facades That beckon us in or beg for attention. Our eyes are easily tricked, persuaded to glance longingly in the right direction. And yet we avoid amending our prescriptions. Ignorance is bliss, but knowledge is power – and can “sweet” exist without presence of “sour”? … Continue reading

Overdone

Overdone

Some of us are cursed over-doers. We over-think, over-analyse, even over-feel. Rest is replaced with stress as we deliberate over the “what-ifs”, Questioning minor details until the whole world becomes surreal. Over-doing isn’t always bad. Sometimes we over-achieve, and that makes us over-the-moon! We’re demeaned for being “over-sensitive” (like that’s going to help…), But it’s … Continue reading

To My Dear Prince Harry

To My Dear Prince Harry

If ever two were one, then surely we. But woe, your life has been bereft of me. Miss Markle sadly somehow took my place, Before you got to see my splendid face. You’ve always been, by far, my favourite ginge, (Although at times your actions make me cringe) But now that even Sheeran is engaged, … Continue reading
