I listen to the birds you once fed as they call, they carry on and dart about as if you were never here at all. And so will all the people as they walk on by this place, a new unit block will be pushed into the sky and your house will be replaced. But I'll remember this, and you, until the day that I die, I'll carry this beautiful melancholy burden all my life with a heartbroken pride.

I miss you (sort of).

My friends and family are wholly unsupportive of my writing habit. The last time they read any of my work they looked at me as if I was rabid. A coworker asked if he should call the cops, my mum said my work wasn't much chop, and said that we'd all be better off if I just stopped.
I assume they're all jealous of me, and like Jesus you've got to flee the Nazarenes and go to somewhere new. Somewhere where the people are not predisposed to be jealous of, or inclined to be hating on you. Somewhere far from facebook, somewhere amazing and grand. Or failing all that, how about Instagram?

I wanted to be the veins to your blood
I wanted to be the clarity to your mud
I wanted to be the diversion to your floods
I wanted to be the question, answer and full stop to your love
But whatever I was, I was never enough.

I won't make your Insta page a place where your followers come to be regaled
My face is probably the very definition of a Snapchat fail
But I promise to love you
And I promise to cherish you
At least until
You lose your looks
And you lose your charm
And become as average as me.

Piling on more of myself in larger, kinder doses, is the opposite of what they want, it's an incorrect diagnosis. The real problem here is just with who I am. The one thing I can't change. Can't pull apart. Can't reprogramme.
