I can feel them in my head.
I only wish they were under my bed.
There’s no light when they start speaking.
I’m stuck in the dark, my cranium creaking.
My mind is abused, every day.
There are people in my head […]
Sanding on the edge of Waterloo Bridge
With the cold wind cutting my face,
I glance down to the Thames far below;

Casting its shadows […]
