I’ve nothing here but to exist.

I won’t flourish into a
metaphor for those born
in my year.
I shall not be all
as all shall not be me,
my world will be engraved in a bullet
ricocheting through the gaps
in my memory,
all too too much to make
sense of.
I will not remember
the pleasantries,
only the addictions.
I will not obsess about the world changing,
I will hold onto whatever
guise of reality
I sketch of you.
I will mean no offense when
I take myself for the only truth,
And I will neither apologise nor
share this damage limitation.

But I will not be invisible.


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: Cheers, enjoy.
