It’s missing.

Gone somewhere I cannot find it.

Or was it stolen?

Smuggled away in the night by a thief.

Taken without permission.

I’m searching.


I will have it again.

I will!


Hot sheets lie on damp skin.

Cold air flows through the room.

A nurse flits bed to bed.

Lines on her face show fear.

A small cough sparks some life,

though death hangs over them all.

A sob falls from thin lips

and a last breath comes forth.

Same Love

So this is my first attempt at a rap/spoken-word poetry. Let me know what you think. 🙂


You look at me disgust plain to see.

It’s written on your face,

no disguise,

it can’t hide as you sneer,



jump in fake fear if I ever come near.

But I pity you that’s the shock,

that’s the truth.

Your ignorance is your achilles heel.

See, I don’t care what you think

’cause I’ve been to the brink

and I’ve looked into the abyss

and I’ve come back to this

and I can see your fear for a world you don’t understand,

and I wish I could teach you,

nurture you,

reach you.

Help you to realise that love is love

no matter the type.

It shouldn’t be judged,

or restricted,

or punished.

Love is free.

Love is true.

And if a boy loves a boy well,

who cares if they do?

It’s a gift just to find someone to share in your life,

So why should we judge whether that love,

or another,

is right?
