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 😦

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
