Crime of Love


No one can see the future,
No one can see the time,
No one can see the crime.
*
To steal someone’s heart,
Lock it up tight,
Is considered beautiful,
Until something doesn’t go right.
*
Even through the time,
Even through the crime,
Even through the pain.
*
I’d still do it all again,
Give my heart up,
To be locked away,
Who wouldn’t want to be loved that way.

Review Me, Please.


Hi Everyone,

As most of you may no I published an anthology of my favourite works earlier this year. In order to get some honest reader feedback I was hoping some of you may be happy enough to read PeskyPoetry: An Anthology and review it via amazon/ goodreads or other review platforms. If you would be happy enough to review it please enter your email address below and I will email you a copy of the eBook.

Much Love,
The Pesky Poet

The Witch of Endor


Is it wrong for a man to seek,
The solace of the people deep,
The ones who’ve left this mortal space,
To find their final resting place,
As Saul once did with the witch,
Who showed him those from the ditch.
***
We all long for another conversation,
With those who can only be summoned,
Those who no longer move among us,
But seem to be always with us,
As Saul once did with Samuel,
When he spoke to the witch of Endor.

You Are Wonderful


Hey you there,
Yes you,
With eyes on this page.
You are special,
Don’t forget,
That you are loved today.
You are wonderful,
You are,
And don’t listen to naysayers.
You are amazing,
It’s true,
My work lives through you.
There is only,
One you,
Live as the true you.
I am blessed,
With love,
That you read my work.

Thank you. Xxx

Mind Games


As this post is designed to heighten your awareness to your body I do warn you that you may notice things you never have before. Also some of these may not work on some of you as they don’t always work.

**************

I can be cruel,
Of that I’m sure,
You know you’re blinking.
***
On the other hand,
I can do things,
Like say,
Is that your tongue you are feeling?
***
I digress,
for I have noticed,
My own breathing,
In…..Out.
***
One that often gets me,
Is the ticking in my neck,
I know it’s just a vain,
But still It gets to me.
***
On we go,
Onto our feet,
Can you feel your cold toes?
***
Time to be,
A little mean,
Is that your nose,
That you can see.
***
Lets also pay,
A cruel respect,
To the itchy end,
Of your nose.
***
Or more-so,
I have known,
The itch to spread,
All down my hands.
***
With the odd mixed signals,
Of my fingers,
Neither hot nor cold,
Just slight tingles.
***
And with the beat,
Of your heart,
Your hands will shake.
***
One I must not leave behind,
Is that ringing noise inside,
You know its there,
You here it now.
***
But moving on,
Lick your lips,
And you shall feel the strange,
Tingling sensation.
***
I would apologise for subjecting you to this,
But I did warn you first,
Just think of tea and you’ll think of this,
Face, Eyes, Noes, Hands, Feet, Lunges, Tongue and Lips!

Better to Have Loved and Lost.


Just for a moment,
Of your time,
Sit with me,
Even for just a short time,
Perhaps we can,
Have a meal or see a movie.
***
Whilst I know,
I may never be yours,
Lets just,
Learn about each other.
I understand we,
Are just friends and,
May that last forever.
***
He’ll never know,
Exactly how I feel,
So I will just,
Keep dreaming,
Even if it is for nothing.
Tis better to have loved and lost,
Than never to have loved at all.

Acrostic Valentine Request


With it coming up to Valentine ’s Day,
I had someone in mind,
Little did you know but,
Like so many others,
I am too scared to tell you,
And maybe you will see this,
Maybe you would say yes…
***
Just someone I loved,
Once before,
He is amazing but I was,
Not what he was for,
***
Maybe this year you will say yes,
And maybe this year I will find love,
Come what may I will not stop,
Looking for the one to love,
Every day forever more.
Once again I find myself,
Doing something foolish.
***
For you I wrote this,
Rather difficult,
Acrostic poem,
So you would know who sent it,
Even without me saying my name so now I’m just,
Really hoping you’ll want to be my valentine.
