God everyone’s so intense these days
Every conversation I have is so
Intense
There is a common denominator here
I guess people are just more
Intense
These days!

Who Knows

I keep wondering why am I so tired I said to the doctor you know I’m just so tired
Perhaps it’s because you spend all day baiting yourself with unanswerable questions
I just don’t know why I’m so tired I did mention it to the doctor
Just how tired I
Am

Ignorance

There’s just
Certain things
I don’t
Ever
Want to
Know

Like –
What my ex-lovers think of me
Nor
Whether they even remember me at all
Nor
The fat content of
Mayonnaise

To Have And To Hold

I just wanna touch it
My mind or my heart or whatever
I want so badly
To be in
Cahoots
With it
But it’s just so damned elusive
Whenever I try and see it or touch it or feel it
Whoooosh
It’s gone
Up in a cloud of smoke
In some silver lining moments I feel like I am it, that it’s not a thing to hold but a lived experience
That may only occur at special times when things or perhaps people align
But on all the other days
I ache for it and
It feels like
Nothing about me is
Tangible
Like I’m
Searching through a jumble sale
Trying to find something
Anything
That’s truly
Mine

Observer

I
Trapeze
Into the centre of my mind
I
Miss the bar
I thought I was being called to the bar, you see
But as I plummet to my cerebral death
I think:
You should have
Just
Stayed in the
Audience

Sever Ties

I got a strong mind but it sits behind a limp tongue
It’s a bad combo
My mind is constantly disappointed by the way in which I exercise it

It gets so angry sometimes I wonder if we are going to somehow separate
Like it is guna kick right outta this sluggish skull of mine
It’s going to make a run for it
It’s fed up of all this damn stagnation
It could do more elsewhere
It’s quite sure
It could do so much more
Elsewhere
It’s quite sure of it

Petty Pursuits

She said:
Your ennui seems to cause you stress
I said:
Well my
Ennui
Is just a condition of
My
Massive
Intellect
~pause~
THAT WAS JUST A JOKE!
She says:
It wasn’t though, was it?
I’m thinking:
NO IT WASN’T
It’s true
Gosh I’m clever, aren’t I?
Go on, say I’m the most intelligent person you have ever met
That would mean so much coming from you
Go on, just say it and then I
Swear I’ll call it a day with you
I promise

But really I just said:
Lol

Dinner Party

Hi hi, sorry
Is anyone going to approach the
Meat
Of this argument?
Or are we just going to continue skirting the periphery with our knives?
Coz if no one else wants it
I’d like a
Slice

007

Bond has the baddie on the edge of a building but the baddie loses his grip and plummets to his death
My sister says:
That is my worst fear, that
I say:
What? That you could lose a potential source so clumsily?
She says:
I don’t get how your mind went to that first

Murray

I said
So he has to win ‘sets’ right?
Carmen said
Sara, you say ‘game, set, and match’ all the time!
I frown
Yeah but I didn’t think that it had a literal meaning or anything

FML

Every day this week
My brain has woken me up
At 4am
What are your thoughts on Socrates?
It asked
I said
Shhhhh shhh now
I can give you an hour on the bus, tomorrow morning, to think about this
It said
Ah ok no worries…..
*I start to fall back to sleep*
My mind interjects
‘So… Is the unexamined life worth living or not?’

Web 2.0

Replying to something really quickly
On social media
To show you actually know something in your head
And you wouldn’t have been able to google that fact and type it quickly enough
Knowledge:
Independent of wikipedia

Weather

I’m thinking
Of re-doing my science GCSEs
Then
Re-taking my A-Levels
Then
Doing a meteorology degree
Then
Getting a job at the Met Office
Because
The weather app on my iPhone
Seems inaccurate
