Oh Christmas Tree…

Oh Christmas Tree…

Oh Christmas tree oh Christmas tree, You are a strange tradition. All year you stand there nakedly, Not changing your position. But when December rolls around You’re finally invited Inside our homes – where you are crowned, Adorned in balls and lighted. The problem is, oh Christmas tree, This makeover causes me stress As while … Continue reading

Jack and Jill

Jack and Jill

Jack and Jill Went up a hill To photograph the view. Jill preferred nature Over portraiture, Which Jack had taken to. While Jill admired trees And the crisp autumn breeze, Jack was not quite as elated. He was hardly in awe Of the things that they saw, So he just became very frustrated. Jack felt … Continue reading

Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on a fence. Humpty Dumpty felt rather tense. Humpty didn’t like making decisions So he stayed in the middle with balanced precision. Humpty was asked if he’d ever get down, To which he responded with a deep frown. “You, my friend, may well be agile, But I am feeling rather fragile.” The … Continue reading

Onwards

Onwards

I thought it might hurt, but it doesn’t. I’m surprised by how little I care. I thought I’d be gutted and nosey and lost But really I’m just laissez-faire. I write poems to log my emotions But I’m not really sure how I feel, I’m just happy that I’m not as sad as I thought … Continue reading

Decisions

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
