You might be wondering why I have started penning all these rueful poems. I recently started writing my memoir and it has ignited a fire within me. Some of the memories that I thought I’d flushed away for good have risen from their graves in a creative burst, and now it’s finally time to express some of those darker memories in a constructive way.
I’m not in a bad place whatsoever. I’m simply eradicating the past by expressing it through writing, and if that journey takes me through some of the deepest, darkest valleys and back over some of the most treacherous mountains, then so be it.

This is a poem called The Taker, based on an amalgamation of real-life characters from my history.
I need your brain and your hands
So you cooked dinner and worked all day long
But it’s not enough
Understand that you’re wrong
You have stuff to do? So what!
I really couldn’t care a jot
If doesn’t help me, then it’s really not work
So do as I say or I’ll just go berserk
Why should I do anything myself
When I can simply ask you to help
Then sit on my rear as you sweat and toil
And I rest on my laurels just like a Royal
I should be King and all bow to me
I am a legend why can’t you see
Everything should always be about me
Now be a good girl and just agree
Without me you’re nothing
For I am everything
What is your problem
Why are you crying
Where have you gone
Please come back
I’m all alone
I’m needing a snack
What do you mean, I’m an ego-maniac?
Fine just go then, turn away and leave
After everything I did for you and tried to achieve
How dare you say I tried to deceive
And why are you wearing a look of relief?
Don’t go away, I want you I need you
I need your supply, I don’t care if I bleed you
Without you I’m nothing
Do I need to start begging?
How could you do this after all that we’ve been through
And the help and support I’ve always given you
Your nothing without me, when will you learn
It’s my job to delegate and your job to earn
Why have you blocked me
I cannot get through
Are you angry? I haven’t a clue
Let’s just forget this and start anew
The dinner needs cooking, I fancy a stew
I’m not the bad guy, those words are untrue
You must be crazy
To walk away from me
So I’ll tell all I know
You’re an evil banshee
If I can’t control you
Then I’ll start to undo,
All the good that others see in you
Don’t start a war with someone like me
Please come back, I’m feeling so lonely
