Bullet Wounds

Abrupt, unprepared

Pulled the trigger without warning

And blew me to smithereens.

Well, I’m not the guilty party

I hope the ghost of your actions

Plague and follow you around.

Because I was an innocent

A new born foundling

Who you wrongly accused

With your torrent of cusses

That left me dumbfounded and baffled.

Tried to play me like those before

And failed to notice that I had a holster of my own

That I could brand you in my own way.

Don’t attempt an apology

My memories long and I remember these things.

-E.K.

Secrets

Dangerous things that haunt your mind

Tend to keep you up at night

A burden, a promise that you have to keep

But it’s burning in the back of your throat

The words are heavy on your tongue

Ready to spring out into the unknown.

Now a friend notices that something’s wrong

You figure, you might as well tell someone

A cruel game of Chinese Whisper’s begin

That spreads like wildfire

Catching onto everything.

You betrayed their trust and now they know.

Secrets aren’t secret for very long.

-E.K.

Hey guys I know I haven’t posted in a while but I’ve been spending quite a lot of time on Wattpad writing. Most of my poetry is on there now but alas I haven’t given up on this blog just bare with me. :)

Thanks for reading!

A Daydreamer’s Diary

I don’t look where I am

Just where I’m getting toodaydream

Why stay in reality?

When I can drift up to Cloud Nine

Perch there and look down

At the world I left behind.

The tranquility is mesmerizing

But I can’t stay here forever

There’s plenty of time

To dream and hope

When I close my eyes.

*Morpheus is waiting for me

Wiping the slate clean

On my bad day

By creating the perfect landscape.

 

-E.K.

Half Empty or Half Full?

You get what you’re given in life

It’s true when they say

That no good deed goes unpunished

You wonder why you even try

What part of the Bigger pictureprettty

Includes your life

Outsider, onlooker

Constantly out of the loop

If you could would you

Runaway from everything?

 

But then you’d be giving up on it all.

And I never pegged you for a quitter

The Underdog, Quirky One

Your time has finally come

You’re not a sheep like the rest of them

Go against the current

After all, like they say

If you follow the crowd

You’ll never make your own way.

-E.K.

Serpent

Venom in your words

A sneer upon your lips

Nobodies safe

Your angers contagious

Your poison infects my bloodstream

As you fire your insults one by one

Whoever’s in your way

You choose to victimize

Making them your next prey

And when you’re done

You carry on

Whilst they are left to suffer.

Some of them are immune to you

Thicker skins than the others before

Stronger, more agile

They tread on your tail

Rather than ushering you away

They aren’t warned off

By your colourful spots

Or the dangerous glint in your eye.

They don’t fall for your tricks

Or are consumed by your hate

Instead they stand up to your egotistic

Ways and make your poison

Dissipate.

-E.K.

 

Sunbathing

Soaking up the sun summertme

In the garden we lay

Listening to music

We constantly replay

Our favourite loud rock band

In the BBQ scented air

Giggling as I realise

I’ve burned – yet again.

And when the sun goes in sunbathing

We hang our heads in defeat

Pick up the towels and earphones

Heat inside and retreat.

 

-E.K.

 

Prom Night

A rush before we run out of time

Hair and make up

Don’t make me look like Frankenstien

Limo’s, champagne, I don’t know where to look

There’s so many camera’s flashing

And photos being took

Arrival is awkward to say the least

Off come the heelsall together

I’m dancing madly with bare feet.

Teachers grinding on each other

I don’t know where to look

I wonder if they’ll remember tomorrow?

Sweets, Prom nominations and our King and Queen

We all just stare and wonder who it is?

Ending the night with the Titanic theme song

Looking over and watching my best friend slow dance

Aaah and Oooh we all say together

It’s a night that no doubt, I’ll always remember.

-E.K.

I’m the one in the black dress and blonde hair :)

Robot

I have feelings and so do you
We keep them bottled uptin man
But then they leak through
I see the drawn expression that is never replaced
The empty look that clouds your face
Your system reboots
And momentarily I catch
A glimpse of the human in you
You are not mechanic
You are allowed to feel
That cavity is not empty
Like the tin man
You always had a heart.
-E.K.

Kryptonite

I guess I found your weak point

The chink in your otherwise fool proof armourkryptonite

The words tumbled out of my mouth

In the heat of the moment

And I can’t take them back now

The cracks in your otherwise placid behaviour

You broke down like I never expected

I stood there numb as you ran to your haven

Even now I can hear the sobs that echo through the walls

Ingrained in my mind

I’m so sorry I found your kryptonite.

-E.K.
