Life’s Too Real

Life’s too real on many days,
On those I wish you’d come to stay.
Come to me, come to play,
When life’s too real together we’d escape.
Life’s too real when it really hurts,
But when your here the pain desserts.
When you come joy asserts,
I’m ten feet tall, your armoured sir.
Life’s too real when it’s kicking my arse,
And only you can make that pass.
Giving me the strength, the strength to last,
Protecting me, healing me, with spells you cast.
Life’s too real on days like this,
I wish it’d leave, just go, dismissed.
To be replaced by you in a seismic shift
To make life worth living, the gift you give.

My Dark

A star so dark

And I’m left in its dust

There is no one to blame

For my crying flesh

My crying soul

You left a mark

With your syrupy lust

But my desires won’t tame

Always ready, always fresh

My life’s mystery hole

The world turns

A technicolor dream

And won’t look back

We can’t take anything

We can’t keep anything

Not even the slack

Oh dark star…

You trickster

Oh dark star…

It’s from you

I became
