Perplexed

Explain to me, if you will
how you wormed your way
into my life – I am guarded
against you wandering types
and the lies you tell

What ruse did you use
to captivate my attention?
Surely not those batting eyes
or that seductive smile
I’d catch on to those

Maybe it was the sly shift
from seduction to intellect
You charmed me with brains
knocked the wind out of me
with your witty repartee

Now that you are here
perhaps I will play along
match you tit for tat
just don’t expect my heart
to willingly be broken

You’ve peaked my curiosity

A for Abandon…

Soul mate's - so near, yet so far

Why you left me all alone??
Left me for the other one
See what you have done to me
You turned and left
Leaving me with broken walls of dreams and memories
Your sweet memories…
Once, I was full of life and energy
Gleaming with your love
And standing strong beneath the shining sun
Giving you warmth, care and love of home
Entrusting your laughter and sorrows
Helping you to rest well
And see beautiful dreams
But, when your dreams fulfilled
You left me behind…
Left me alone, shatter and broken
But still I have a hope
Hope, that one day you will be back
Searching for your old memories.

A is for…Apocalypse!

A Certain Point of View

Welcome to Day One of your Essential Guide to Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse.

We all know it’s coming – there’s no point in pretending otherwise. Some have even interpreted the rise of Donald Trump as a herald of the end of days (either that, or a reaction of those feeling disenfranchised by the current status quo against the political classes’ refusal to engage with the issues as they see them, and rallying behind a figure they perceive to be successful, powerful, and speaking their language… or something like that).

Point is, the end is coming, you gotta be prepared, and you ain’t gonna have time to memorise a whole bunch of stuff when it happens.

You need a short guide to surviving the rise of the undead, covering you from A to Z.

You need… Haiku of the Dead.

Apocalypse NOW!
Better run; find food; shelter:
The dead…
