I, Parasite


Never ask me to write you love letters,
Never ask me to pose for photographs.
I have nothing to give, so don’t ask me
To help you.

I’m hairs on the carpet, nails on the floor,
A slight crack in the window pane;
You have no use for me,
I’ll only drain the life from

A cut in your lips.

So never ask me for anything,
And don’t rely on me to keep you alive;
It’s a gamble you’ll never win.


About DickensianJack

Born in Wolverhampton in November '93, moved to Huddersfield in September 2012. Studying at the University of Huddersfield. In love with the town - simple as that. As for the blog itself, I've been doing bits and pieces of writing (with varying quality) for a few years. A friend suggested I start a blog to share my work. Most of the stuff on here is poems, but there's other work interspersed on the page. Feel free to leave any comments on my work. Twitter: @DickensianJack (Jack Dickens) Facebook: www.facebook.com/dickensianjack Cheers, enjoy.
