It's hard to keep perspective When the walls are caving in A million miles an hour thoughts Send my head into a spin 'This one is worse than last time' I say, as I gasp for breath 'This time it's really happening' As I head towards my death The panic rises swiftly A … Continue reading Writing Through It
I’ve always loved poetry, but I’ve never been any good at writing it. When I’m writing, I tend to write in the same way that I talk, which is sound if I’m writing a blog post about Christmas Shopping or defending my right to tell Holocaust jokes, but poetry is a completely different breed of … Continue reading Rhyme, But No Reason
Having a proper ‘I can’t be arsed’ kind of day today, but I promised myself I’d post something daily. So, I’m just gonna add this quick little Q&A about me this morning and possibly do one with Osian later (different questions, obviously). Are you named after anyone? My dad. His nickname is Kim, so I … Continue reading What’s With All The Fucking Questions?
‘I guess Charles Manson will never get the chance now to fulfill his lifelong ambition of starting a family. Oh, hang on......’ Reading online this morning about the death of Charles Manson, I immediately started thinking of a funny status to post on Facebook. This is the result, it isn’t that great, but it got … Continue reading In Defence Of The Offensive
‘Insanity is knowing that what you’re doing is completely idiotic, but still, somehow, you just can’t stop it’ I think we can probably all agree that there are some proper mad bastards in the world. People who, for one reason or another, do things that are so bizarre, we can’t fully comprehend their thinking processes … Continue reading Scatty Sunday Stories
Step 1 - Don’t fucking bother. Why put yourself through it? Stay at home, put your feet up and become a Scientologist or a Jedi Knight for the Christmas period, that way you don’t even have to celebrate it. Ah, if only, eh? If, like me, you don’t have the luxury of ditching the shopping, … Continue reading Christmas Shopping – The Ultimate Guide
‘I still miss you’ Did you think of anyone while you read that sentence? Did a particular person come straight into your head? Do you have that one person from your past that you still miss? I don’t mean obsess over or constantly crave like a junkie tweaking for their next fix, but just someone … Continue reading Like An Idiot Misses The Point
‘The art of conversation is dead’. Usually what people mean when they say this is that because most interactions are done digitally these days, people don’t seem to be able to hold a halfway decent conversation anymore. Everything is abbreviated, people don’t converse; they just say ‘k’ or ‘lol’ and tag each other in memes … Continue reading Here Lies This Conversation….
So, my son (Osian) is 7 years old and, even if I do say so myself, pretty clever for his age. I am currently in the process of getting him diagnosed with Aspergers and he has lots of quirks and obsessions. Over the years though, he has come out with some of the maddest things … Continue reading Kids Say The Darndest Things….
About six months ago I wanted to try something that I had been calling ‘poetic prose’, which I had seen on Instagram. I don’t know what the literary term for the style actually is, but I often find that in the absence of knowledge, making stuff up as you go along will do the job. … Continue reading Poetry or not poetry? That is the question.
