It’s a damned if you do
damned if you don’t
sort of scenario,
one of those ‘long drag’
dilemmas that leaves
you with lungs full
of smoke and a head
full of air,
nothing running around
up there but doubts and
suspicion, that creeping
sense of indecision
taking up home where
ambition once roamed
and nesting nicely
in a bed of  shredded
dreams and care.


It’s happened again, hasn’t it, folks? You know what I’m talking about; it’s Monday. Maybe, if you spend a bit of time relaxing back and reading some poetry, you might just have an alright sort of start to the week. Of course, I’m talking specifically about my poetry, but my opinion’s a bit biased I suppose.

No matter how you decide to spend your day, I hope you enjoyed the post above. This one is, of course, about that nasty sort of situation that lets you chew on it, however, it ends up being one of those tough pieces of steak that, though you might get through it, it’s still left that sort of sour taste in your mouth. We get through ‘um, sure, but they were still hard to swallow.

Well, here’s hoping that you’re Monday isn’t as ‘Monday’ as it could be, and that the week treats you kindly.
