Black Jack’s Black Cat

The best parts of my character diminish before your very eyes the minute I talk about feelings. For all my intelligence, logic, rationale and reasoning I lose credibility within the first few sentences as no one and I mean no one likes to talk about feelings. I did not understand this phenomena until I discovered…

The Dream with the Singer

I am walking up the steps from the tube with a well-known A&R Manager. She turns to me as we exit the station and tells me she wants me to look after a famous Grammy award winning singer. I groan. Not her, anyone but her, we don’t get on! ‘Nonsense! You’re similar ages and have…

Like no other

Always the same, always the same dreams … I have a dream hangover. I’m feeling bad for the things I did in the dreamworld. I feel awful. I want to get up and go for a walk. I need to get outside, shake it off before it pulls me down. I can feel it happening…

If you want it, say so (let’s Jack)

To whom it may concern … bends and blends like twizzlers (beside every bad boy there’s a bad girl) There is the fear of missing out but worse is the fear of moving on. I have both. I get all twisted in my head – am I making the right decision, what if it doesn’t…

Glasto 2020

I wanna get up close and personal with strangers. I wanna feel their body heat. Push our way closer to the front; no mean feat. Form tightly hand-held chain gangs with my group snaking through the dense crowd. Arrive at the barriers just as the heavy bass and drums start up loud. Lights flashing from…

The dream with Mark Ronson

I awake feeling low searching for clues and meaning. It wasn’t Mark, it was Black Jack. It doesn’t matter. I’m confused. I didn’t hear anything and he mumbled his words so I assume I’ll have to listen to the whole catalogue of Ronson’s music to find what I’m looking for but then I realise that…

The dream where I chill out in the coffee shop in the sky

It’s like any other gathering of friends really. We sit around drinking coffee and chatting, breaking off into smaller groups to discuss issues and problems. Black Jack is there, he’s talking music and poetry with one, looking over his shoulder at me to thank me for bringing him along. No problem I say without speaking.…

Songs in Falsetto

(Now, I have quite a few songs to jam in here from the same studio album but please stay with me as I’m hoping it will bring about a revelation. We’re going back to the noughties. It’s all very smooth crooning and sexy time – so sit back and relax) Can you believe now, when…

My Type on Paper – Post 56/103

He said I wouldn’t stay faithful. He said if we were on an island as a couple then purposely separated for a few days, each tempted by gorgeous hot bodied singles of the opposite sex that I wouldn’t stay true. He claimed on my return he would expect to watch me walk in linking arms…

Frontin’ #3/Love shy

Sometimes I run when I want to stay … I’m on my tenth listened to both versions of Frontin’ when I notice that the girls are frontin’ as much as the boys in the original video. I’ve reread all our messages and I can see that when backed into a corner I did the only…
