The Night the Concert Ended

The Night the Concert Ended   Yesterday I woke to news Morning t.v and social media Was flooded with shock, Dissolution and terror As the story unfolds My heart feels heavy I am overwhelmed by emotions Sadness, fear, shock These things had happened before And I had felt those emotions then too But this time…

Connection Unconditional

For Day two of Napowrino, I have gone promptless and let inspiration come from the thoughts within. Connection Unconditional  She is comfort. Warm hands to hold. An engaging smile. A kind heart. Which is gratefully received. Strawberry blond. Like me, She is pale and freckled. We sound alike. Or so I’m told. When I answer…

Turbulent Waves

Day 1 of Napowrimo and the challenge is to write a Lune. Turbulent Waves Slowly it begins  Hard broken I battle fierce waves My steps leave soft prints Fragile glass Shattered pieces fall Those shards cut deeply Blood stains red My tears wash away Am I a pebble? Tossed and turned  My grains, the sea…

Chronic

Chronic Broken Fractured Shattered Smashed Flawed Tainted Ready for scrap Crushed Fragile Mentally drained Worn out Sad Internally pained Burnt out Torn Wearing thin Wanting to be fixed Get better But where to begin By Katie Haigh Copyright@K.Haigh 10th February 2015 photo by Katie Haigh Copyright@K.Haigh

Two Faced

Two Faced She is just a girl Shrouded by decision Which path to pick Her footsteps nervous Tainted her heart Fearing her choices Careers and college G.C.S.E’s Which ones are right? They came at her directly Like a speeding bullet Tearing through flesh That once coated her life She is just another girl Leaving in…

Endless

Endless Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock A ticking clock The sound reverberates around my brain Ticking and tocking again and again My heart beat rhythm follows it’s flow While my eye lids flicker But will not close Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock A ticking clock The moon lit sky Feels like a torch…

Doing the Right Thing Until it’s Better

Doing the Right Thing Until it’s Better Pen embraces paper Ink expanding into a sea of white Like a beautifully smooth flow of fonts A writers mind focused Expecting conception of inspiration Writing until it’s better Writing until what’s better? The words, the story Or the mind of the creator The maker, the storyteller For…

Dedicated to Manchester Dogs Home

Dedicated to Manchester Dogs Home Those tails that wagged Those ears that pricked Those tongues that licked To greet us Those mans best friend Those companions Those who wanted to protect us Those on four legs Those young and old Those creatures of kindness Those gone too soon Those who howled at the moon Those…

Eyes Don’t Judge

Eyes Don’t Judge Your eyes are like daggers, Thrown with disregard and content. You who judges my home! You who judges how I raise my children! You who judges my life! Don’t you get it!! That one glare of judgement! That one remark of snideness ! That one whisper of poison! It seeps into me,…

Must Write

Must Write Laid bare, exposed I find myself Confronted by my words Permanently inked on white crisp untouched perfection Like drops of blood Leaving a stain Exploration seems my only choice For I must write As a thirsty man must drink I have a addiction to creativity I must unlock those thoughts Thoughts in dark…

Skipping a Beat

Skipping a Beat Her smile is painted on. Like a mask she wears, To hide herself. Her eyes have lost their shine. They look empty and dead. She’s crying inside. In her head, She wants to scream. But she keeps it in, Her problems unseen. She wants a hand to hold. Someone to understand, Her…

Words in Song

Words in Song Dream a little dream of me I’ll be counting stars Singing Blue moon While wondering if there’s Life on Mars I’m fighting all my demons Asking if E.T is real Just give me reason Another love I feel I don’t want to miss a thing While I’m chasing the sun You can’t…
