Clutter…

I wish we had elastic walls.

The space we’d have is plenty.

No clutter everywhere I look,

Perhaps a guest room, sometimes empty.

I wish we had elastic walls,

I’d love to have a craft space.

No projects piled underfoot,

No projects piled out of place.

We haven’t got elastic walls.

Our house is bursting at the seams.

Clutter piled everywhere.

It’s even piled in my dreams…

Always blue…

You’re raining on my sunshine,

stop giving me your blues.

I strive to keep my chin up,

you’d rather dwell on sad issues.

 

You don’t know real sorrow,

so far your life’s been blessed.

My energy gets stolen

each time you “get it off your chest”.

 

I’ve been a solid friend to you,

We’ve been through this before.

I’m sorry that it’s come to this,

but I can’t help you anymore.

A long day…

 

Wide awake, mind buzzing.

Thoughts in every direction.

Can’t sit still, can’t lie straight.

Watching hours pass by.

Shadow monkeys play loudly.

Out my window, in the moonlight.

Bedtime nags me to get closer.

I need help to relax.

Mary-Jane blows me over.

I can finally sleep.

Sex for one…

 

You say you don’t touch me because you’re lazy.

You aren’t lazy.

I just don’t think I turn you on.

Energy Thief…

Somebody who drains you,

does soak up your glow

 with ongoing dramas,

everyday the same show.

A face booking saga,

dirty laundry parade

going round in a circle,

soap opera homemade.

Zip it.

A worn out welcome hovers

around the house guest that doesn’t leave.

At ‘goodbye’ time,

the tears begin…

“What have I done wrong?”

 

‘Leaving time’ doesn’t usually mean you’ve done something wrong,

But seeing as you ask….

 

A moments peace would have been nice, while you stay here

in my own home.

You talk about nothing.

Then you talk about talking about nothing.

My ears are sore from your nonstop yapping.

You talk too much 

for someone as used to the quiet as I am.

My head is done in,

and it’s time for you to go home.

Save your tears for someone else’s ears.

 

Things would be different

if just once,

for just one minute,

you would just zip it!
