Just An Ordinary Day


For so many that day,
started like any other,
The daily grind,
The city bustle.
***
The same was true,
For the four crews,
Who were just up there,
Doing their jobs.
***
The world watched in horror,
At what humans could do,
An act of pure hatred,
Against no one they knew.
***
Now 19 years on,
The memory is still raw,
The skyline is different,
Cannot let go what we all saw.

My Heart Still Cries


Roses are red,
Violets are blue,

At the thought of you.

Here’s To Old News


Here’s to what you taught me,
Here’s to what we had,
Here’s to what we could have been,
Here’s to our past,
Here’s to what you’ve lost,
Here’s to what didn’t last,
Here’s to old news,
Here’s to being over you at last.

Life Could Have Been Different


Life could have been so different,
We could have missed each other,
If God had granted my prayers.
***
But if God had given me the nod,
And granted me a different life,
You wouldn’t be with me tonight.
***
God could have granted me millions,
Or the love of my first crush,
But he didn’t let me rush.
***
He kept me waiting on my toes,
Knowing what was in store for us,
And now you are mine.
***
My prayers are not for riches anymore,
There for the right path to lead me,
To the next chapter of my life with you.

Be Mine


Before I say good night,
Each night I want to kiss you,
***
Maybe this year you’ll say yes,
Imagine if you were mine,
No matter how bleak my day seems,
Everything brightens up with you.

I want to be with you,
So say Sé mío,

Will you just say Sé mío?

Prayer To A Loved One


We all know a loved one,
Who could use a prayer,
Someone who is ill,
Or just needs someone there.
***
Send them a thought,
In the form of a prayer,
Then give them a hug,
And let them know you’re there,
***
Times can be rough,
Being alone can be rough,
But knowing someones there,
Is sometimes enough.
***
So send out a prayer,
That there is someone there,
Someone for you,
As you are for them.
***
And if you are needing someone,
You are in my prayers,
And just know,
I will always be there.

NSFW: I Dream Of You (VERY EXPLICIT)


WARNING!!!
This poem contains explicit gay pornography in the form of a poem. If this is in any way offensive to you it is unintended and I would appreciate it if you just stopped reading instead of you completing the poem then writing a comment of complaint, I consider you warned.
_______________________

There you are walking on the side-walk,
Your skinny jeans hugging your legs,
That body warmer of yours as close to you as I want to be,
Here is me staring just wishing you would notice.
***
Then you turned towards me and looked,
What is this, a smile and a blown kiss,
Why are you sending me this wink.
Am I dreaming or are you signalling.
***
I cross towards you and can’t believe my ears,
“Lets go back to mine and waste the night”,
My head goes light and my legs just follow you,
Have my dreams finally come true, and I going to cum with you.
***
As we come up to your front door you turn and stare,
Your eyes have that look of longing in their misty blue,
A cold hand meets my cheek and rubs it calmingly,
Before another grabs my head from behind and pulls me in for a kiss,
***
As tongues changed mouths and your hands explored,
I stood still, in shock at the events, surely this can’t be true,
You can’t truly think that I am the one for you,
But I have always dreamt of this moment with you.
***
Cautiously I lift my hand and run it through your beautiful hair,
It’s rough texture amazing to have the chance to feel,
Suddenly this was cut short by a swift move towards the door,
As you unlock the door and push me in.
***
You begin to unbutton your shirt, working down them one by one,
Slowly you open it revealing your beautiful smooth chest with the faint outline of bone,
My heart seemed to stop seeing you offered to me,
Standing shirtless in front of me, really could this be.
***
As the shirt hits the floor you grab my hand and lead me some more,
Kissing against every bare piece of wall making our way down a hall,
As we entered your room you removed my belt and threw it aside,
You push me back onto your bed lift my legs into the air and pull my jeans right off,
***
You crawled up the bed over me just for another kiss before pulling my shirt open,
Kissing all of your way back down you focus on my boxers not leaving one bit unexplored,
This can’t be happening surely you weren’t removing your jeans here with me,
Then there was the warm sensation as all of a sudden my boxers were off and you started.
***
My body warmed up and ecstasy ran through my veins reminding me I was still alive,
And before I knew it you were naked beside me and sitting letting me stroke you,
Without warning from my body I started towards your bare cock and begun to suck,
Since I first laid eyes on you I dreamed of this moment but never could I imagine this.
***
You rolled me over and begun to work on my ass rubbing up and down my back,
As I felt your finger make the first move my arms collapsed and I began to groan,
Never could I have imagined this could have felt so perfect,
Before you rolled me back and rested my legs on your shoulders>
***
You stared longingly into my eyes with you beautiful marbles when I moaned loudly,
You moved slowly in and back out just teasing me with what you could do,
I closed my eyes and let you take control as I lost it all,
Just when I begun to moan louder and louder you gave me a confident stare.
***
As i came all over my chest you made one large pant and one large moan,
Before leaning closer to me and placing your hand back on my face,
Using only your thumb you rubbed my cheek and gave me another gentle kiss,
Then ecstasy returned as you pulled out and lowered my legs.
***
We both sat there panting laying next to each other naked,
I giggled nervously before being calmed by your look again,
You put your arm around my neck and used the other to stroke my hair,
This was perfect and I wish I could live here forever.
***
But here I am stood on the roadside still daydreaming ,
Wishing for that moment with you,
Then I made the decision to cross the road,
And to live the rest of my life with you.

Help Support Pesky Poetry


Hi all my lovely followers.

Some news hit my desk this morning. Sadly, MelonCollie Ravings of a Dyslexic Poet has been delayed to mass distribution due to an administration error by the distributor. As I use sales of books and merchandise to fund the site I have decided to offer the Hardback directly as signed copies. You can buy one at the bottom of any recent post on the site (including this post).

Costs

The signed copy is £24.99. I know the price looks high so I will breakdown the cost so you can see where your money is going.
£16.99 – Print costs for the book
£2.49 – Sipping costs to me
£2.99 – UK Shipping costs to you.
£2.52 – UK money donated to Pesky Poetry.
£4.99* – International Shipping costs to you.
£0.52 – International donated to Pesky Poetry
*Note: The international shipping varies country to country and £4.99 was a rough mid point to that.

How does the process work?

When you purchase through PayPal I get an email request. A copy of the book will then be ordered from the Print-on-Demand site. That order can take up to 2 weeks to completed (often it is about a week). I will then sign the book personally and walk it to my local news agents where it will be shipped to you. All in all the process should take no longer than 3 weeks in the UK and up to 3 months internationally (depends on country some places will take 3 weeks others will take longer, sorry about that).

I have questions, where should I ask them?

There is a contact button at the top of the page, feel free to reach out via it.

Thank you for your continued support,
Love,
The Pesky Poet

Shockwave in Wakanda


We woke this morning,
To the sad new,
The king of Wakanda,
Is now gone.
***
Having touched many hearts,
His loss broke them apart,
The panther will live on,
In memory, movie and song.
***
You will not be forgotten,
Chadwick Boseman,
Rest now and be at peace,
And let the world go on.

Annoying Poem


There is nothing more annoying,
Than a poem,
Where the end doesn’t seem to be flowing.
You read a sweet line,
And all seems just fine,
Then the writer just screws up the ending by not thinking and writing something stupid.

I let you go


The pain of what I lost,
Ate me up from the inside,
Missing the sweet kiss,
Of your loving lips,
***
But that’s all gone,
I let you go,
You took my heart,
And now I’m cold,
***
I have never felt this way before,
The pain of losing,
With the thought of winning,
Now you are not here anymore.
***
I let you go,
I don’t want you back,
You stole my heart,
And I’ll never forgive you for that,
***
You are in my past,
And I wish I had made you last,
But life’s a game made for everyone,
And love is the prize,
***
I let you go,
So why did you come back,
Why couldn’t I say no,
And just let you go?
***
I let you go,
So why can’t you just stay in my past,
I wish I couldn’t feel,
Because all I want is your love.

Some Little Piggy


Some little piggy,
Went down to the market,
To tend to the market stall,
***
Along came a wolf,
And bought all the beef,
Before leaving the market for home,
***
Poor little piggy,
Thought he was a goner,
But the wolf doesn’t like pork at all.

Broken Hearted


Floods of tears roll down this face,
They hide no glory or no grace,
What lies below is usually sealed,
But you hold the key to that special place,
***
And now my heart lies bare and bleeding,
And the wound lies open,
For you used the key and then stole it from me.
And now my heart is broken.

Redheads


Redheads spark fascination,
Amongst scientists and populations.
Only 2% of humans are redheads,
But still they sparked superstitions.
***
The four alleles have to align,
And only at that special time,
Will a child be born with hair of fire,
And one more person is born a ginger.
***
I cannot lie,
I too am intrigued,
I love the hair colour,
I think it looks sweet,
***
The colour has been,
With kings and queens,
And even has seen,
Men of extreme nobility.
***
So let us give a moment of thought,
To those with this special trait,
Phenotypic phenomenons,
With the beautiful red fiery hair.

Wants and Desires


All I really want,
Is that moment with you,
That lifetime of memories,
Lived and loved out with you.
***
All I really desire,
Is the feel of your embrace,
The kiss in the morning,
And the hug before bed,
***
All I really wish,
Is for you to be with me,
Love me and hold me,
And never leave me.

I Know


Sleep away the pain,
Let the night heal it,
Let the moon wash it away.
***
Nothing is so bad,
You can’t make it another day,
Just let someone help.
***
Remember and all it can bring,
Remember the good times,
And the bad ones you made it through.
***
Don’t ask yourself, “What if”,
It won’t change it anyway,
Instead ask yourself why and learn from it today.
***
Don’t worry I know your pain,
And if you let me I’ll take it away,
Just spend one night with me.

Beethoven


Have you ever noticed how Beethoven,
Looks a lot like Beeth oven,

To spell Beef Oven,
Or is it just me?

My Dreams Are All About You


I know you will never be mine,
And no words I say will change that,
But at night you play on my mind,
And it hurts that I am betrayed by my heart.
***
So now at night I dream of you,
And wish my dreams would just come true,
For I would dream forever more,
If it meant just being with you.
***
So tonight I’ll kiss you in my dreams,
And tomorrow hope to see you,
For you make my heart skip a beat,
As my dreams are all about you.

Letter to Hannah Gadsby


Your comedy touched me,
In a way I thought not possible,
The world though the LGBT eye,
Is one often not relatable.
***
I am a quite guy,
A gay white man,
And very shy.
***
I’m often told that I am broken,
Because I don’t take part,
In the parades,
With big floats in.
***
I don’t do pride,
I rather hide,
And watch from inside.
***
So to see your comedy tonight,
Brought a smile to my face so bright,
Thank you for sharing what you do,
Lots of love and thanks to you.

Summer Treat


Summer often brings a treat,
Shirtless men walk down the street,
You can see the in the park,
Or running past the parked cars.
***
A stunning sight for your eyes,
Rippling abs and thick thighs,
Bulging arms and puckering pecs,
With a little drop of sweat.
***
If they notice you trying not to stare,
A nod or wave let’s them know you are there,
A smile back makes it sweet,
That makes my day out on the street.

Family


Family conjures images,
Of unbreakable bonds,
And loves that don’t fade.
***
Family is supposed to represent,
A connection so raw,
It never frays or ends.
***
Family is the act of helping,
When you know,
Things are helpless.
***
Family is about family,
And putting them first,
Before your own cares.
***
Family is all of these things,
And none of these things,
And only works while you care.
