Some People

Some people fall asleep at 3pm
Dreaming about their lives;

Other people stay awake at 3am
Going about their lives;

Some people stay awake at 3pm
Going about their lives;

Other people fall asleep at 3am
Dreaming about their lives;

I am sitting around at 10am
Thinking about my life.

Going Overseas

(A newly engaged couple (R&S) goes on their first trip overseas together and wakes up next to each other in a lovely resort by the sea. They stir, but are not fully awake yet.)

S [turns to face R]: Is there anything on today?

R: Nope I don’t think so, what about you?

S [stretches a little]: Nah.. Don’t think so…

R [places hand on S’s ass, squeezes lightly and tugs at her underwear]: How about we stay in bed all day today.. without anything on?

[S lets out a little moan]

 

Badminton

It flies in the air
To and fro
One hit to another
One smile and another;

The joy is simple
I can see it from above
Maybe they’re connected
Somewhere else in time;

I remember the time
When all that mattered
Was which crayon was better
And whose backpack was brighter;

We yearn to grow up
We yearn to go back
We want to be free
We want to be told;

Something’s not right
What the fuck man.

(I find the use of the expletive necessary to support and finalise the overall frustration; if something is real, there is no need for romanticization or some induced form of exaggeration. Sometimes it is okay to just write as it is, incoherent and hardly with a form.)

One

One love song
Can be one too lonely

One phone call
Can be one too fussy

One heart broken
Can be one too many

One day
we’re gonna get so high.

(If you don’t mind, the quality of the things I write has been falling. It’s a trap I find myself in.)
