Default Re: Petals

I am the one who
Wears the troosers.
Can you not go shower
So I can cook? I ask.
Our kitchen was
A scullary and small
So only one person
Could move in it.
Do you know why?
Why I wear the troosers?
I am a man. THE man.
I say: Ok, I have eyes
And it is the
Twenty first century.
Fred comes downstairs
After taking two
Minutes to shower and change.
And while I am cooking
He barges past
Me to check on the food.
I cooked for myself
As a teenager if
My parents were working.
I am no Nigella but
I can follow a recipe.
I keep my cool
And say, there
Is not enough room
For both of
Us in kitchen.
Can you not
Trust me to grill
Some chops?

Default Big headed clout

My parents were just strict.
Their bark was far
Worse than their bite.
I told Fred that my
Ol'mum never hit me.
And I told Fred that
David actually was harder
On Paul than me.
He used to twist his ear.
I did a martial arts
Kick and I did not
Realise my own strength
And I was told off.
When we had a barney
One time David
Punched the glass
In the door. But I
Did go off the rails.
I asked Fred who
On earth told you
That David "beat me up?"
He never did!
Where do you
Get this idea?
Why would I call
Him dad over my
Blood father if he
Was some kind of ogre?
But Fred never listened.

Would you call someone
You work with: the diabetic?
No so why do people
Get reduced to being:
A manic depressive?
I am not going
To jump on my campaign
Horse and try and
Change the world's
View on mental health.
I will admit my reason
For wanting to write
Was about mostly
About fixing my own life.
It was not the
Be all or end all.
All I ever wanted
Was to move on
With my life.
Did I have something
Different to offer?
Had it been done before?
It was not easy
To find first hand
Accounts of mental health.
I was not reading
For the fun of it.
I was searching for answers.
I was looking for clues.
I did not know
What I was going to do
When or if I ever did
Accomplish what I
Set out to do.

Are they on the spectrum?
If they ask if I feel "dopey"
I swear I will blow a fuse.

Default A poster. Only a poster.

Mental health is glorified in films.
In reality, admitting you
Have anxiety or depression
Is still not acceptable.
It's not only career suicide,
It scares people away.
An ordinary person Cannot
Admit they have a condition.
Not until they
Are out of the woods.
I wish there was a
Less intimidating word
Than stigma. Stigmatised.
I automatically think
Of horror films
I have seen.
Would I ever get
Out of the woods?

Default Seek

If we fight you may
Need to get used
To sooking through
A straw for a while.
They do not get
Any points to carry forward.
And I see Patrick
Has commented:
Your time will come.
I tell Fred he sounds
Like a prophet
Or a shaman.
This is Scotland
Not the orient.
He had split from
His oriental dame
Before I quit
If I remember accurately.
Mosher tee-shirt says
To "need a good
fukking sympathiser"
Oh look it is everyones
Favourite tart, except
This one has a good heart.
He said I have a good heart!
She says enthused, and I say
Yeah it was not
All that bad then.
And I think to myself:
I do not know what
Is worse, him saying
That to the poor girls face
Or her for mistaking
It as a compliment?
I only said broad Shoulders
Because I had
Nothing nice at hand.
No Mersey, he is not, a parlour
Because he plays guitar.

Default Clipe

I would have deleted it.
I should not have
Posted it, I was
Stressed and nobody
Ever took me seriously.
I had just split
From the fiance
I was seeing six years.
I would have deleted
It in my own time.
I was mad!
The bongs, ok
I never cliped.
This was different.
I knew by one glance
That Paul was not
Just dabbling here
And there but
My ol'dad and ol'dear
Buried their heads in the sand.
If I was officially questioned
I would not have
Told them and I
Would have said
I can't remember.
I posted it when
I was drunk.
I was drinking again
In all fairness. Every night.
I did not want
The authorities to see,
That was not it.
Sometimes doing nothing
Is worse than
Trying and failing.

Fred was supposed to
Stick up for me.
Be in MY corner.
But barging into MY work.
It was humiliating.
So I phoned your work.
I could say I was
Trying to help you
Because when I went
To collect more
Of my belongings,
I was worried about you.
Yes, sometimes talking
Was like trying
To pull blood from a stone.
I was always a bit shy.
Nobody ever said
It is ok to be shy. No.
It was a problem
That I had to fix.
Fred was not shy.
Take me how I am
Or go to hell.
That was Fred.
Cool as a cucumber.
Never anxious, he
Never sweated a drop.
He was quietly confident.
He never questioned
Himself or his motives.
His gelled hair
Teenage skin.
Boy racer car.

Default Primal fear

I can nuclear war
And pretend it
Was the "other" me.
I used to think that.
But the clocks
Are not fools.
And I would end
Up doing the samba
Till I kickkk.
Take note. First
Impressions count.
