Autumnal Blues

I watch you changing colours

in a metamorphic change.

Were once warm and familiar.

now you’re colder and estranged

from happiness decaying,

slowly withering inside.

Skeletal your brittle soul

in autumnal blues abides.

Scattered your hues resplendent

dance, blown in seasonal brood.

Gloriously you perish

until Spring picks up your mood.

As life forever alters,

the dark hours appear so long.

Nature is a magician

in its rebirth you’ll be strong.

I don’t want your love

something is amiss,

your heart is made of stone

I don’t want your kiss.

I don’t need your words

sharpened in their charms

Never will I find

comfort in your arms.

I don’t need your soul

breathing down on me,

putrid eyes of hate

all I ever see.

I don’t want to give

your abuse my head,

truthfully I cry

inside I am dead.

The Night Is Getting Darker 

The night is getting darker 

the street lights are coming on,

another day is leaving

and our energy has gone.

The night is getting darker

the stars will twinkle and shine,

in natural light above us

in our birth they are defined.

The night is getting darker

our astrologies are born,

they’re cast among the shadows

and the coming of the dawn.

The night is getting darker

and our heart felt dreams released

by flutterings of eyelids

as our starlight gives us peace.

To The Clouds Above 

To the clouds above

Falling into daydreams

head to the clouds above,

imagination tripping

in happiness and love.

Ideas wisp and fluffy

billowing in the skies.

Floating to destinies,

wishes to realise.

Eyes dreaming in wonder,

excited,flutter desire.

Inklings in their stargaze,

concepts twinkling inspire.

Infinite creation

in retinas displayed,

walk through clouds on journeys

to futures to be made.

Deliciously excited,

Elation lights up eyes.

Lighthearted twinkling spirits

Illuminate in surprise.

Gratified in happiness,

Heavenly in its delight.

Thrilled and embraced by rapture

Fulfilling the hearts are bright.

Undying moments blinking

Laughing happy eyes winking.

Give Me A Sunrise 

Give me a sunrise

of daydreams, new dawns

and horizons of

universal love.


Give me a sunrise,

each fresh beginning

born in auroras

of orange and pink.


Give me a sunrise,

awaken the world

and harmonise peace.


Unite with nature.

Give me a sunrise

a plethora of

clarity, clear skies

unify mankind


Give me a sunrise

our hope will shine through

our hope will shine through

our dreams will come true.

Tips To Conquer Depression – Tip 4

This is another simple little tip.

Simply treat yourself to a little bit of pampering from someone else.

No matter from sex you are or culture you are from go and have a haircut, shave, beard trim, manicure, pedicure, massage whatever type of personal grooming appeals to you.

If you have not got very much money save a tiny little bit every week even if it’s just 50p and save it towards that little goal. Also check hairdressers windows for models required, I recently had my hair cut and restyled for nothing as I saw a sign for models required and it is generally always a trainee cutting hair at the end of their training to gain their qualification, totally supervised and they do a good job.

I suggest this tip as it is actually good for your general well being to be spoiled and pampered by someone else like that. It makes you feel good and gives you a lovely little boost.
