Hrm, just wanted to explain the poetry that I put up really. I apologise if anyone finds it boring, or worse still depressing… that's not really the intention in posting them. Just thought I'd share some of what I consider to be my better poems (I've written some truly shocking pieces in my time… ah crap now it sounds like I think my poetry is good… erm note to self – stop typing). Ok so this has turned into a ramble.
Basically, I don't do funny or thought provoking… but sometimes I do do poetry. That's about it really. x
the light burning through my half open eyes
i stuggle to breathe,
at the mercy of a stranger's hold on me.
As fingers increase their grip
and my lungs collapse in defeat,
in a moment of horror
i realise that my own hands
are asphyxiating me.

Ah well, I'd better go and finish reading Moore… Now where did I put my magnifying glass?!...

Well as the title suggests, Peter Woods thinks I'm a loser. Which I personally don't have a problem with, but just in case there are those of you out there reading this who don't associate with losers like myself, I suggest you stop reading now. And go and read Peter's witty, informative and enlightening blog :)
In the middle of nowhere
Suffocating in my solitude.
At this point in time
I am a blank
Leaving nothing to the imagination
For there is nothing there.
Alone with my thoughts
I learn nothing about myself
I can only confirm
My own preconceived notion
That I am worthless.
Once long ago, before my hope died
I tried to escape from myself
But only succeeded in failing.
The flashes of light
That sometimes penetrate the darkness
Only seek to heighten my remorse
Reminding me of what I have lost
And what I have become.

Does anyone find the image below (also located on the Warwick blogs homepage) ever so slightly disturbing?
It could just be me…
Have just got back from seeing Matty at Rococo, for hot chocolate and a game of GO. Had no idea what this GO was when I turned up and I can't say I'm an expert on it now… still it was certainly 'interesting'. Its a game of strategy in essence, which apparently I should be good at because I did A level Maths…psssh is all I can say to that. The maths a level I did certainly didn't involve much startegy or logic (but then I did only get a C so maybe thats what I was missing?!) Either way, I wasn't overly enthralled by Matty's description of it. Nevertheless I endeavoured to play it, with varying degrees of success… I wasnt losing too badly when it came time for Matty to leave but I think it will take a bit more practice for me to fully understand it. According to my non-logical brain, I have decided that GO is a sort of cross between chess, connect 4 and noughts and crosses…. which has probably left you feeling even more confused than I am!!
Anyway apologies for probably having bored your socks off… but you chose to carry on reading mwahaha. May write later, depends on how "inspired" I'm feeling.
Until then… adios amigos
Is easier than I thought.
If you read between the lines
You wonít see the pain Iíve felt;
Thatís not the lie youíve bought.
In my creative haze,
I spin my webs with ease;
Cocoon myself inside a hollow make believe.
Stanza after stanza
Bleed from my black heart
But still the poison of my memories
Refuses to leave.
Tired of talking, the silence killing me
I canít find a relief.
Abhorred for giving my testimony,
It takes all that I have to remember to breathe.
