Turning into my Mother

Turning into my Mother

“I’m turning into my mother” I say in dismay, recognising her in the tone of my voice, my mannerisms, the size of my nose. Don’t get me wrong, I do love her. From the bottom of my heart to the tips of my toes, But seriously. If I’ve bought a new bag, put on a … Continue reading

My Nutty Valentine

My Nutty Valentine

Congrats, you found your bae, well done. Would you like a heart-shaped prize? I don’t mean to sound like the sad bitter one, But just look at it all through my eyes… I might not be in the honeymoon phase But I’ve not fallen out of it either: Discovering all those annoying ways (Like why … Continue reading

Decisions

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

#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.

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

She Walks in Beauty

She Walks in Beauty

She walks in beauty, like the day Of pastel hues and balmy wind; But I have heard some people say That naturally she’s not soft-skinned; And ‘cause she wants to #hashtag “slay”, Countless selfies she’s already binned. One eyelash more, one blemish less, She photoshops and smooths her face, Thankful her hair is not a … Continue reading

The Bird and the Pussy-Cat

The Bird and the Pussy-Cat

The Bird and the Pussycat’s bright eyes met Through the towering pane of glass. Bird knew it was wrong, to pursue this love-song, But he thought he was pretty bad-ass. He fluttered his wings and puffed out his chest, And sang to the watching cat, “Oh pretty Pussy! You’re simply the best! Won’t you come … Continue reading

Family Gathering

Family Gathering

I wandered lonely as a cloud (That’s gained a little fluff this year) And slowly walked up to the crowd, Who smiled and said “Hello my dear!” With shining eyes and laughs so hearty, They were the life of the family party. Although they clearly meant no harm, Their idle chatter I did dread, For … Continue reading
