You Win
November 18, 2012

It’s not just the fairy-tales that are fakes.

It’s the T.V. shows too, and the adverts

In between. The newspaper headlines,

The stories are just stories.

Songs about ‘real-life’ are there

For distraction purposes only.

The bus timetable is a lie.

The lecturers promote a false ideology.

The lie after lie after lie that you spout

Has infected everything else.

The only thing honest is the laughter

You try to stifle as you pull the rope

Tighter. You love the short shallow breaths.

The eyes rich with adrenaline.

Groping and choking, this is just a game.


Lexis Is My Life, And My Degree
October 24, 2011

Something I wrote for my course. By the way, I’m not trying to be some arrogant prick like, ‘oh look how wonderful I am because I do a degree in English.’ No. I’ve been doing this course for like a month, I don’t know what I’m talking about. It’s a pun. Not a very funny one, but oh well. I just like to reiterate that I’m not a prick. I hope. The task was, we got given a random double-page-spread article, very text heavy, and we could only use words and phrases from the article. I thought it quite an innovative task, rather difficult, but overal I would say it was quite fun. I would reccomend it.

The Fool
by Elexa Rose
Powerful temptation,
In the mind of a little, shy girl.
Happiness and anger,
There is a lot misunderstood.
Withcraft and seduction,
She will make you the fool
And beat you up.
Precious sorrow,
Because her heart is so deep.
Detroit’s little Pearl.
She would never dare disappoint.
She wrote a song
For the best dancer she had ever seen
But she just played the fool.
