Operation 365 Poem: day 185…Blurred Times

Blurred Times

Poor Daddy
Million miles away
Stupid Skype
Was blurry again today

Having no luck
With Skype all the time
One minute blurry
Next minute fine

And Fine only lasts a bit
Then back to being crap
Thought Skype was supposed to be the bomb
When there’s a distance gap

We’re relying on Skype
To counter the “I Miss You”
So Daddy can see his little guy
And he can see Daddy too

We want to be together non-blurry
Skype please work your magic
Otherwise this two month separation
Will be even more tragic šŸ˜¦


Operation 365 Poem: day 184…Topsy Turvy

Topsy Turvy

No sleep
Screws with your clock
Tick Tock
Tick Tock
Where did it go
No one can know
It’s not a peep show
There are no rules
It’s not so cheap
To take a peep
To find time to sleep
It’s like precious metal
Like a rare flower petal
Like a win by Vettel
Take it when you can get it
Ignore the screwed clock
Let it mock
Let it go Tick Tock
Or Tock Tick
If we’re being slick
You can call it a dick
Time’s a bitch
Don’t hold back
Take to it the bat
Give it a whack
But remember its no game
It’ll still be the same
No sleep’s a pain
So live the topsy turvy


Operation 365 Poem: day 183…You Can Do It

You Can Do It

Try to be healthy
Try to work out
No time in the day
To have any doubt

Believe in yourself
Be true to you
Don’t get all grumpy
Don’t be a poo

Lead by example
Smile even if down
Everyone is watching
Look up from the ground

Tomorrow is new
So it’s okay if you fail
Pick up your chin
Inhale then exhale


Operation 365 Poem: day 182…Wear It

Wear It

Green trousers
Ready to go

Red bandana
Screams hello

Blue jacket
Hug me I’m cold

Yellow t-shirt
Do as if told

Black feather bower
Let heads double take

White underwear
Apparently a mistake

Pink bra
Shows my devotion

Purple leg warmers
A sexual frustration emotion

Brown gloves
Always makes me think of poo

Orange shoes
What’s a girl to do

All together now
That’s how I dress

Wear the rainbow
And look a hot mess!


Operation 365 Poem: day 181…Now

Now

How do you feel
When you know it’s coming to an end?

Do you jump off the cliff?
Or strap yourself to a weapon and defend?

Where do you bury yourself
So that those you love can come visit?

Do you wing it?
Or leave instructions that are explicit?

What do you wear
For, I guess, the rest of eternity?

Do you tell anyone?
Or indulge in your morbid secrecy?

How do you say goodbye
Without actually saying goodbye?

Do you smile and nod?
Or do you let out a cry?

How, where, what
How

It’s now


Operation 365 Poem: day 180…Creepy Crawly

Creepy Crawly

When in the night
You hear a loud bang
Look to your left
There I am

Like a creepy crawly
I sit and wait
To study my prey
And frighten when late

You can’t always see me
I am good at keeping low
Until its the right time
Then I pop out to say hello

I’m always listening
So just be aware
You may think you’re alone
But I’m right there!


Operation 365 Poem: day 179…The Edge

The Edge

That vision
Oh
Bouncing in my mind
The fall
That sound
Being one step behind
I wake
And gasp
As I see it replay and replay
I doze
It won’t stop
Haunting as night turns to day
Just bringing him
To bed
Sets my nerves on fire
I’ll try anything
At this point
To encourage him to tire
Too much
I can’t
I keep thinking I’m over it
But his tossing
And turning
Makes my heart have a fit
Too little
To learn
And I can’t let him roam free
My bed
Off limits
Even if it helps him get sleepy
Truth is – I can’t trust me


Operation 365 Poem: day 178…No Night Night Mummy

No Night Night Mummy

Hold me mummy
Don’t put me down
I don’t want to sleep alone
I want you around

I can tell when you are gone
Or about to walk away
I can feel when you are tired
But please mummy stay

You love my cheeky smile
You love it when I’m close
So why would you leave me
When I love you the most

I know your tricks by now
Lights off and sleep sheep on
They won’t work mummy
Not even rocking me all night long

I just want to be with you
I promise I’ll fall asleep
Just hold me and don’t put me down
And I won’t make a single peep


Operation 365 Poem: day 177…Ha Ha not Argh!

Ha Ha not Argh!

Bring me comedy
Bring me laughter
While you’re at it, bring me the Crown Jewels
And happily ever after

No one turns away the clown
Nor the town jester
Everyone likes to leave on a high note
And let the giggles fester

Smiling is good for the soul
Laughing is good for the heart
Also it works out your abs
No need for a gym when you have art!

Why do you think I became an actor?
Why do I love to play the comedic part?
There’s nothing that beats that feeling
Than an audience laughing with (or at you!) and hard!

You can see the film and theatre repertoire
Has adapted with projects that require us to think less
There is too much drama in our everyday lives
We need a place to relieve the stress

Let us actors do what we do best
Now enjoy….and rest!


Operation 365 Poem: day 176…Arrival

Arrival

Finally
After many
A night sleeplessly
It arrived thankfully
And gladly

Can breath deeply

In reality
Actuality
Sadly
Think they all wanted me
To be again a mummy

Maybe
It’s regretfully
Wishfully
Longingly

But presently
It’s favorably
Honestly

Eventually
I can see
An addition to the family
A growing tree

Sorry
To the disappointedly
