Poem a day challenge#10 Quality Street

Babe stop chasing those shiny coloured wrappers in the air

don’t you think a lifetime is enough

don’t go craving that elusive perfect man

invest in

making yourself


to love

for yourself

nobody else

ditch those damn pills

never was anything wrong with ya

they are the problem

you were never lost

you knew exactly where you were

they just didn’t see ya

bother to find ya


Babe cease trying 

desperate to please

smile when inside you are raging

nod when you wanna scream NO

You are taking the mickey

treading on my feelings

disregarding me my needs wants





About cho wan yau

Teacher by day poet/writer by night. Words have been my first love and will be my last. As a child I locked myself into the toilet devouring books which transported me to distant lands. Poetry shared penned from 2009-2010 in a titanic struggle to stay sane at Heartbreak Hotel. Please check it out on chowanyau@wordpress.com. Any comments or feedback welcome. Why not share your story with me, because we all have one, don't we?
