High Strung

I don’t take sugar But we’ll share spoon  So I can steal some of  Your sweetness  I think to consume Such substance  In front of strangers Shows weakness Some see beauty I see blue And black And bleakness I run full speed From the neons And watch as others Seek this Plethora of  Glistening glory [...]

Learn As I Listen 17/09/22

17/09/22 I moved into my new home over a month ago now. I live with three of my dearest mates; two from Lyric Deep Ltd. The musical atmosphere has got me inspired, in both my own creativities but also in devouring others’. I want to use this newsletter to talk about some music I’ve been [...]

Tune Teef

I remember going into that music shop Going to the top floor Taking pictures of the notation Before leaving with no money spent But a pocket full of score.  I told you all about it, You said, it was illegal, I said, I doubt it, You said, it is. It’s not evil, Just theft.  I [...]

Primrose Ill

She said come Primrose To watch the sunset  But I knew my presence Wasn’t wanted So I laid the other side of the field Wishing it was a double date But instead I’m just third wheeling My mate Maybe I’m too much Actually, I know I am I know I’m a lot to take I [...]

Sobriety Is Complex 17/09/22

17/09/22 Not drinking is hard. Maybe for some it don’t bother so much. But for people like me, where it can consume them, it is bloody hard. I’ve been sober now over two and a half years.  I started drinking early in adolescence, and it was my main vice to escape issues I was too [...]

Typical

Bless you for giving a shit I never noticed that view before I never considered you before Something worthy to adore But now you poured Out all that heart Over all my flaws And still asked for that little bit more So naturally I’m rather infatuated But with all that love-spill, My own giving a [...]

Ms Ghost Station

I’m in King Cross’s womb Bumping down the disused  Tunnels Ready to slop out in the early hours All grey due to my recent surroundings I’m found in Slippery oil slicks, hi vis And darkness But I felt safe in there The air stuffed itself It gorged on bum fluff Supervisor huff, and  She churns [...]

Stage-a-Gwanin’ 17/07/2022

17/07/22 Eek, I am finally getting some opportunities to perform on stage! After spending so much time building your art up, it can feel like a big ball of energy that you want to send spinning into the world. Each rehearsal makes the fire burn brighter. Each question from mates asking ‘When? Where?’ chucks another [...]

Hypoglycaemiadreamia

You spoke to me like I was human But I had big eyes and antennas  Still you took patience Carving stories like hands under henna Pausing for my breaths And then a Sweet check up to see if I was keeping with But I wasn’t  I was fluttering eyelids And seeing triple There were ripples [...]

Funder Bolted

I think you’re the bee’s knees Even on days like these When life don’t treat you  To the things you deserve When you ain’t served  Lurve or kindness When you got that blindness To your wonder And those smarts That bring a beige day Thunder. By Lyric Deep.
