the wind swirls around
my mind like the storms
on jupiter. its cold
colder than a night on
pluto. i am a comet
travelling through space
on my own surrounded
by rough grass and deep mud
yet i feel safe here
away from everything
that can hurt me
away from those that
would attack me
belittle me, make
me feel so small
the most powerful
microscope in the world
could not find me
my safe haven is the moors
protected from others
by natures elements,
elements my enemies
do not like. my skin
may be cold but inside
the sun burns brighter
than sirius illuminating
the moors keeping me
warm, cosy and sage
from everything that
would harm me. i am
at one here with the
natural earth looking
after my mind, body
and soul for eternity


where did you come from

silently sneaking up on me and

attacking me when I wasn’t ready

 

why did you choose me

out of millions and millions

why me, why me

 

to invade my body with your

swarming seeds flowing around

my body, killing me slowly

 

leaving me in constant pain

barely able to move or breathe

fighting to stay alive

 

as you explore every part of me

seeking and destroying

my very soul, taking me alive

 

in order that you may live

and I will die taking you

with me in my final hour

 

would it be your victory

or would it be mine

even in death

 

but I am strong

stronger than you realise

stronger than you will ever know

 

and I will fight you

for every hour of every day

wherever I go I will fight

 

to stay alive and beat you

destroy you, defeat you

to rid my body of you

 

and I will fight forever

to remain alive for another

minute in this world

 

and see you defeated

once and for all

gone forever

 

I want to see the

sun rise

the moon dance

leaves blown by the wind

streams racing by

rain bounce off pavements

 

and I will do

because I will beat you

today, tomorrow, forever
