Captivate 

Clouds have got me spellbound

As they go drifting by

Perhaps they are the ghosts.

Time worn shadows in skies.

In abstract formations

Vague effigies fly

Always otherworldly

Their mystery gratifies.

Evermore they’re dreamy.

Aggression 

Aggression is deliberate 

with malice intent its conduct,

full of jealousy and hate.

Aggression is deliberate

with purpose to hurt and deflate.

Insidiously it destructs.

Aggression is deliberate

with malice intent its conduct.

Toolbox 

Sometimes life throws a

spanner in the works.

It’s always when you

think you have nailed it

.

that it wrenches at

your heart, prising it

open, cutting you with

its saw. Often it

.

will drive you nuts but

don’t bolt to go and

get hammered thinking

you’re in a state of

.

disrepair. Screw your

negativity.

All you need is a

toolbox to fix you.
