Little Things


The small things you do,
Are the most important to me.
The way you sneak up,
Just to hug me from behind.
Or the way you smile,
And just don’t say a word.
These little things make you,
The you I want to be with.

Peace


A word often scorned,
Or branded a fools dream,
An ideal we all seek,
No matter how hard it seems,
Something we should strive for,
Even if it means chaining the regime.

Lets Get To The Loving


Lets get to the loving,
And skip all the hugging,
Lets get to the noise,
And forget all our has-beens.
***
I want to make the walls shake,
With you in my room,
Lets pretend it’s all love,
And see what we do.
***
Lets just have our one night,
Not talk of the morning,
Just make this moment forever,
And regret nothing.

The Power of Words


The most dangerous weapon in this world,
Is not the gun, knife or sward,
It is the human mind,
Thought and the word.
***
Nothing cuts more deeply,
Without leaving a mark,
Than the words of hatred,
Openly spoken freely.
***
Words can be dramatic,
They can also be subtle,
Destroying people in a swipe,
Or breaking them over a lifetime.
***
So be cautious with your words,
And choose them wisely,
Because are not always aware,
How powerful they can be.

Suicide Prevention Week


In this year of lockdowns,
It’s important now,
More than ever,
To look after your health,
***
If you are feeling down,
Or just a little blue,
Or in need of some help,
Reach out to those who love you.
***
People would rather you,
For the rest of your life,
Than to hear a minister,
In 15 minutes sum up your life.
***
If you are in that dark place,
Stop and take stock,
Think of those who love you,
And miss you if you were gone.
***
Suicide Prevention Week ends tomorrow,
But the pain will carry on,
Look out for friends and family,
And help those you can.


If you need help or know anyone who does talk to a medical health professional or in the UK you can call the Samaritans on 116 123 or check out the NHS site here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/suicide/

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.

Sé mío


I want to be with you,
So say Sé mío,
Be with me for now,
And say Sé mío,
Never say goodbye,
Only say Sé mío,
All I want to say is Te Amo,
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

How Has It Come To This


How has it come to this,
Weapons sharpened,
Heartbeats are missed,
Anger in full flow,
Only seeing the red mist.
***
Battle lines drawn,
First blood all but gone,
A family shattered,
A loved one gone,
Although he lives on.
***
You were a great friend,
Someone on which I could depend,
A sane voice to give,
A balanced opinion to lend,
But now you just want it to end.
***
What has happened,
Why has it come to this,
Can’t we just sit down,
Or is this it for us,
A situation that can’t be fixed.

New Book On The Way


Sorry for the relative silence everyone. Sadly I have had a close family bereavement lately which has put a pause to writing but I can now confirm my next book is on it’s way.

With over 45 completely new poems and some of my old favourites the new book has been titled and is just awaiting the OK from a couple of editors.

Keep an eye out and stay tuned… Also, feel free to reach out and let me know if you are interested in reviewing a copy for me.

The headline image is just a teaser from the book.

Love,
The Pesky Poet

Here’s To What We Had


Here’s to the times together,
The nights I’ll never forget,
And the hours, I think well spent,
***
Here’s to the memories,
The hugs and the cuddles,
All will be sadly missed,
***
Here’s to the hours I cried,
The nights after we said our goodbyes,
And the tubs of ice cream that drowned the pain.
***
But mostly here’s to the lessons I learned,
Of love and pain,
And to being saved from what could have been.

You’ve Gone Home


The show is done,
The curtain has fallen,
You’ve taken you bow,
And said your goodbye.
***
The show is over,
No encore to give,
You’ve said you piece,
And left us all to live.
***
It still hasn’t sunk in,
No repeats like on TV,
I won’t see you again,
Not until my end.
***
We’re left with our memories,
With the lifetime of advice,
With the wisdom of your world,
With the imprint of your life.

God Gave You Wings


God too you too soon,
Some might say,
You were here all my life,
And one day you were taken away.
***
But I smile because,
Although God took you home,
I know when he greeted,
He gave you wings to fly.
***
You were my hero,
A man with the knowledge,
The source of my wisdom,
Someone I could turn to.
***
Now when I hear the gulls,
Or see the west coast sky,
I’ll know you are there,
Soaring amongst the clouds.
***
God gave you to the earth,
His gift to everyone in your life,
And each day from now,
I will be thankful to him and to you.
***
I know I have to say goodbye,
But this isn’t the end,
It was just your time,
And I will see you again.
