Why am I so invisible?

you do not seem to see,

all the things I do for you,

I always meet your needs.


I know that when I talk to you,

I may as well be dead,

you do not hear a single thing,

that I have bloody said!


Is it that you do not care?

I find it hard to conceive,

that anything I mention,

you simply don’t believe.


We really aren’t compatible,

I know without a doubt,

one day I’ll take my boring self,

and get the hell right out!


Until that day I’m stuck with you,

and all your childish ways,

I’ll spread my wings and fly away,

(I’m marking off the days!)

How can it be?

When it is not natural.

Not this way,

from the blind side.

How can it be?


When it is out of order,

out of the ordinary,

extra ordinary.

You oxymoron,

natural order.

How can it be?

Reblog from Worldly Winds – sorry I’ve not been around for a while – I have wimp flu!!

Originally posted on Worldly Winds:







Farewell cruel world,

I’m leaving you,

it’s not a cold,

I’ve got the ‘flu.


It may well be,

my final breath,

my nose is red,

I feel like death.


Please don’t mourn,

when I am gone,

go on without me…

soldier on!

Hot flush

flash up

pressure point

no stop

heat burns

brain turns

into mush

with flush.

Heart pounds

skewed sounds

head throbs

stifled sobs

anger flashes

teeth gnashes

temper flares

no one dares

talk to Mum

‘til it’s done.

Hot flush

has gone.

Oh the joys

of menopause!

the stockings were hung by the...tv stand






I see an old lady,

and I think of you –

enjoying her garden,

as so should you


Tinsel and fairy lights,

I really miss you;

coloured stockings hang,

each a memory from you.


Then comes the summer,

and I mourn for you,

for all the lost days,

and the things we can’t do.


When I hear a joke,

I want to tell you,

to laugh like two schoolgirls,

‘til tears wet cheeks through.


Each birthday ticks by,

I wait for your card,

I know it won’t come,

but it still hits me hard.


When I see an old lady,

it seems so unfair,

‘cause you’ll never grow old,

no stick, no grey hair.


When I see an old lady,

with daughter at side,

I think to myself,

That should be I…

We’ve all been there!

I’m in a dilemma –

Oh what should I do?

Why is it just me,

that this happens to?


I’m in my posh frock,

peng from head to my toes.

There is just one problem,

the spot on my nose!


It glows like a beacon,

landing the planes,

I really can’t squeeze it,

‘cos I can’t bear the pain!


There’s only one option –

one thing I can do,

hide under my duvet,

and eat a chocolate or two!
