They say she’s a ‘mother-in waiting’
Like something meant to occur,
and long for future Mother’s Days,
Bring motherhood around like a whirr.

They say she’s created for one thing,
Populate the world she must,
Yes she ought to happily multiply,
but not allow her dream to rust.

Wither in…

Primroses, primroses, everywhere,
Bright and colourful I cannot bare,
To see them and not look or touch,
I’m soaking up spring ever so much.

I grin and giggle like a plant hugger does,
I’m wrapped in warmly in this flower buzz,
I think I have hundreds stored on my phone,
Their simply the…

I noticed them this morning by chance.
They stood out in the Tuesday morning mist,
I almost wanted to break out in dance.

I take a big sigh of relief,
My tenants…

whether we be friend or foe.

She ghosts me without thought,
and torments me by ‘crumbing,
She dangles her love like a bait on a rod,
But I just simply carry on humming…

Permit me to rewrite these years,
To cancel out the never-ending fears,
To push her off the fucking cliff,
Me feel guilty, as if!

I’m angry and I wanna stab someone,
I refuse to be labelled as a doll undone.
I wanna show my fucking wrath,
There’s no need to do the math…
