sorry again for the lack of blogs
but ive been away
by sean gould
sin city is jam packed
almost every night
usually kicks off
with a violent cat fight
parties of drunks
constantly line the streets
smelling of alcohol
and the burgers they eat
drunken jack the lad
thinks he could get any girl he likes
but he gets out of hand
when hes told to take a hike
the average man
works hard from day to day
then takes his money to old sin city
and gambles it all away
theres lots of entertainment
singers dancers and if youre in a funny mood
there are lots of great comedians
but most of them are rude
there are special gentlemans clubs
where lots of ladies walk around
they will dance on your lap
and take their clothes off if you give them twenty pounds
im not into drugs
but some people are just hooked
there are lots right here in sin city
you only have to look
so take a look around
there is so much here to see
when you need a bit of fun
sin city is the place to be

heres the thing
im going away for a few days
so this is my last blog until monday
so im gonna leave you with this poem
by sean gould
the glory days of willow the wisp
when you could taste the flavour on your crisp
when ponty pandy was proctected by fireman sam
and postman pat still had his big red van
when gary coleman was in different strokes
when people still laughed at jim davisons jokes
before jamie oliver was on the tv
the big celebrity chef was rusty lee
when saturday telly was jimmy cricket and little and large
when the england football team won games with bobby robson in charge
ghostbusters and goonies were the films of the day
and credit crunch were words we just didnt say
when danger mouse had penfold by his side
when prince charles took as his first bride
barrymore was the entertainment king
when telephones had only one ring
when pot noodles still tasted good
when a walt disney fox played robin hood
leslie crowther hosted stars in their eyes
when kingsize mars bars were really king size
the days before marathans were called snickers
when nora batty had wrinkled stockings and bog frilly knickers
and roy walker hosted catchphrase
oh yes my friends those were the glory days

Corbett was born in Guiseley, West Riding of Yorkshire. In the late 1960s or early 1970s, he had to choose another stage name, as there was already another Peter Corbett registered. He kept his surname, but when choosing his new first name he was told it must be a name that is long, and so he chose the name of Matthew; for television purposes he has always remained as Matthew Corbett.
He appeared in the 1971 Doctor Who serial The Dæmons and was a regular performer in the Thames Television children's show Rainbow, where he sang and performed and wrote with Rod Burton and Jane Tucker as Rod, Matt and Jane, later better known as Rod, Jane and Freddy.
In 1976 Corbett left Rainbow to take over The Sooty Show from his father, Harry Corbett, on his retirement. He himself retired in 1998 after 22 years, and hand-picked Richard Cadell to replace him, and the show is still going strong.
Of late, Matthew Corbett has withdrawn from most public and media attention. The former Sooty Show presenter lives in Lymm with his wife Sallie. Back in 2005, he noted that he would be playing guitar with his friend John Gray around pubs in Manchester. For this, he has gone back to his real name Peter Corbett.
In January 2008, Corbett reappeared on television, presenting local interest programme shown on the Granada Television region of ITV, Locks and Quays, featuring a journey from the east coast of England to the west coast along waterways such as the River Humber, Aire and Calder Navigation and Leeds and Liverpool Canal.
On Sooty's 60th birthday in 2008, he said that the bear was "in, or should I say on, the right hands".

the magic of the squared circle
by sean gould
theres lots of sports i like to see
but wrestlings a favorate for me
ive been a big fan since i was a kid
since the days of papa shango and psycho sid
i remember when kevin nash was big daddy cool
and doink the clown was playing the fool
when jerry lawler was the king
and honky tonk man ready to sing
hulk hogan tearing his shirt
ravishing rick rude was an A grade flirt
macho man randy savage with elizabeth his bride
and the undertaker with paul bearer by his side
the ultimate warrior giving the ropes a shake
jake roberts always had his pet snake
i remember when bob holly was called sparky plug
and sargeant slaughter was a military thug
earthquake finishing his opponents with a big splash
the million dollar man was flashing the cash
rowdy roddy piper was wearing his kilt
big john stud was massively built
dusty rhoades was the amercian dream
legion of doom were my favorate tag team
king kong bundy and kamalla were large
andre the giant with bobby the brain in charge
i remember the birdman koko b ware
and the nature boy the one and only ric flair
bret the hitman hart always wore pink and black
and davey boy smith drapped in a union jack
hacksaw jim duggan waving his two by four
the rock raises his eyebrow and leaves the crowd begging for more
stone cold steve austin never showed fear
he just stood on the turbuckle drinking his beer
jimmy snuka flies through the air he was trully an amazer
the late owen hart was known as the blue blazer
but wrestling has changed since the days of terry funk
nowadays we have randy orton and c m punk
chris jericho is y2j
he has lots of things to say
shawn micheals has been the heartbreak kid for many a year
john cena makes the young girls cheer
triple h is the game
the hardy boys are just the same
bad boy edge is rated R
JBL arrives in a limo car
big show is very large
the great khali is the size of a barge
about wrestling i know everything
i love watching my heroes in the ring

we tucking in to our pastys and we were approached by a man
he was like"got any spare change?"

it honestly had nothing for him
he replied "you must have some in your wallet"
i said i hadnt

i was starting to get angry
he threatend me with violence then storm off
calling me a vile swear word

i the think the quality of poetry improves every month
i really enjoyed this months meeting
the group is full of good people
and i would once again like to thank bob for the lift home
cheers mate :)
heres one of the poems i read
this one was inspired by a conversation i heard in the queue in mcdonalds
it was between two youths and went a little somthing like this
youth 1; he robbed an old lady and stabbed someone innit
youth 2; yeah hes got a nice coat though
so i thought it would be a good idea for a poem
here it is
its not all bad
by sean gould
he brutally beat a jewish family
buring their house saying nazi quote
leaving them all for dead
yeah but hes got an amazing coat
he stole a car and went for a joyride
crashed leaving an elderly couple seriously hurt
he ran from the scene of the accident
yeah but he wears a very stylish shirt
he used to mug old ladies
frantically wielding a baseball bat
used to rob them of their pension
yeah but how cool is his hat?
she was involved in a drunken bar fight
leaving her victims a bloody mess
using a wkd bottle as a weapon
yeah but look out she fills out that dress
he robbed an off licence
taking all the ciggies and booze
selling them in local pubs
yeah but i love his shoes
shes known as a home wrecker
breaking up families without a care
then moves on to the next man
yeah but just look at her hair
he embessled money from his company
covering it up with bare faced lies
sending people to unemployment
yeah but hes got beautiful eyes
shes a convicted murderer
she killed her husband with a gun
she dosent feel an ounce of remorse
yeah but shes got a tidy little bum

even though i was at work
it took me 20 mintes to get through
then i was on hold for half an hour
so i forced to give up
so naturelly i was anxious and edgey
so i tried 2 ask my boss if i could leave work early
he said no
by this point i was fuming
sometime past and he finally agreed
so i went up the council house at 3pm
had an half hour wait
but was in and out after that
i explained that my mom paid to months intallments yestarday
and now im infront on my payments
so the helpful fellow cancelled my final notice
and i no long have to pay £320

last week i spent a lot of time in birmingham
meeting various friends
inbetween meeting i took the oppertunity to walk around one of my favorate geek shops
but after 2 minutes of browsing i was hit with the might urge to go to the toilet
so i ran out the shop
ran over the road
to one of those new "pay as you go" toilet booths
so i inserted my 10p
TEN BLOODY PENCE
just to do as nature intended
so put my money in
then another 10p
the door opens
so i get in there
press the button to close the door
and so on
i was getting fed up with this
so i just left
i was sooooo desperate
so i went into a nearby bar
and toddled off to the loo
i heard a voice
you cant use our toilet if you dont have a drink
so i went to the bar paid one pound for a coke
drank the fastest ive ever drank in my life
then i made it to the loo
it cost me £1.20p
i only went to spend a penny

your very own romantic geek
as an hormonal fifthteen year old
im sure we have all been there
every one had there pin ups
that celebrity we spent our teenage years lusting over
mine was wwe female wrestler lita (real name any dumas)
she made me aware of the ladies as a spotty geeky lad
i dreamed of meeting her
shes long since retired from wrestling
and now sings in a band called the luchagors
so me and a few mates went to check them out in brum last thurdsay
when see arrived on stage my jaw dropped
she was stunnig
and at the end of the show when she said she was gonna hang around 2 meet and geet afterwoulds
i nearly fainted
my chance to meet her
we shook hands
had our photo taken
i was way too awstruck to speak 2 her
thats a joke
i met her
next time i might even speak

the good news is the album entered the charts at number one
as ive been counting down to the release of metallicas DEATH MAGNETIC ALBUM i thought i would write a track by track review of the album
ok so here what i think
1.THAT WAS JUST YOUR LIFEstarts of with a heartbeat effect and goes in to an almost creepy guitar lick then come the immense cruching riffs.
yes my friends METALLICA HAVE RETURNED!!!!!
then james step up with the vocals.
alot like the song "motorbreath" from 1983s kill em all album
then halk throgh kirk delivers a bone cruncher of a solo
what a great start to a great album
2.THE END OF THE LINE
the intro was played on the bands 2006 tour as part of a song dubbed "the new song" which was a really good song
sadly the intro is the only thing that survived of the song which to be honest dosent really matter as this version is good anyway
the intro gives way into some seriously good guitar work and some mega crunching riff
NEED MORE AND MORE TAINTED MISERY james loudly sings
this song is to me instantly catchy
the guitars cruch all the way through
james voice is the strongest if heard in a long time
personally i really love the chorus on this song
YOUVE REACHED THE END OF THE LINE james sings with classic hetfield charm
a great crunch intrusmental break lights this song up
then theres a lovley bridge part james sing beautifully slow
utters the words "the slave becomes the master"
repeats harder and harder
what way to end a great song
one of my favorates on the album
3. BROKEN BEATEN AND SCARRED
this one dosent beat around the bush
a great fusion of guitars riffs its great musical value
and once again james voice is on top form
the vocal melody of this is almost a bouncy feel
"you rise you fall youre down and you rise again"
it really rolls of the tongue if you ask me
its hard to listen to this without banging youre head
its crunches like a box of crisp under a stampede of rhinos
SHOW YOUR SCARS!!!
4.THE DAY NEVER COMES
of course this was the first single from the album
and what a single it it
its haunting guitar intro pulls you in
and the lovley licks that follow leave you there begging for more
then we get a lovley little solo
then james starts singing
this mans voice melts me
he could sing baba black sleep and the hairs on the back of my neck would still stand on end
this song was the perfect choice has everything you need for a perfect rock
soft vocals hard vocals
5.ALL NIGHTMARE LONG
another one of my favorates
an almost mysterious intro
creates the air of mystery
but then it crunches into a pure feast of metal
this is old school metallica
then it kicks into one of finest heavy metal songs ive heard it a very long time
robs bass really shines through on this track
its a good old sing along metallica song
"suicide ive already died just the funeral ive been waiting for"
its a good old finger tapper
theres no question of the bands musical abillity
but this track turns it up a notch
then we have a fantastic bridge
where james asks
"say is that rain or are they tears?"
a total change of tempo
then business picks up again
kirk peels out a blinding solo
again back into the hard vocals
another piece of perfection
7. THE UNFORGIVEN III
third of the mighty trilogy
theres no question the first two unforgiven songs are pure metallica classics
the first which was featured on the bands 1991self titled fith album (known commonly as the black album) is a self pitying grind on a mans sorry existance
the second feautured on 1997s reload album was more of a tragic love song
but both started with an almost spaghetti western affect
and both cointain the line "what ive felt what ive known" in the chorus
so of course thats what we came to expect from the third offering
but man where we wrong
it starts with a purley melodic pinao and violin combo and the horns in the back ground slightly remanicant of the 1991 orignal
but thats where the similarites end
robs steps up to the plate and shows why hes one of the world greatest bass players
the the singing starts
i love singing this song
its slighty moving but brilliant
then the chorus starts
"how can i be lost if ive got nowhere to go? search the seas of gold how come its got so cold?how can i be lost? in remberance i i relive how can i blame you when its me i cant forgive?"
this song can only be called one thing
half way through u here james bruding
forgive me not
then kirk burts into possibly the greatest guitar solo of all time
the song ends as great as it started
in my eyes the best track on the album by far
but nothing like the first two unforgivens
its better if you ask me
8.THE JUDAS KISS
and crunches through boldy for over seven minutes
fast pace vocals
one blistering song
BOW DOWN AND SELL YOUR SOUL TO ME!!
9.SUICIDE AND REMDEMPTION
im not really big on intrumentals
i like a good sing along to be fair
but honestly its not a bad instrumental
it displays how talented the band are
but there was no question of that
the final song makes sure the album ends with fire works
an old fashioned metal stomper
with shade of 1983s "whiplash "
and this is the song on the album that references DEATH MAGNETIC
posibly the hardest track on the alum
what a way to end it
in my eyes the album is amazing
best they have done in years
cant wait for next one

welcome to the promised land
by sean gould
welcome to the promised land
where arrogance and ignorance go hand in hand
children in the bushes smoking weed
and one in five people face poverty and need
but the people in power just dont care
sitting with whiskey and cigars in their chair
the credit crunch is hitting us all
the world is heading for a financial fall
we take for granted everything that we buy
but now the prices are way too high
with this monitry presure its hard just to chill
when worrying how to pay every bill
thugs on the street make you scared to go out
with the fear of being attacked by a lout
anything valuble they will happily grab it
just to feed that nagging drug habbit
a night on the tiles isnt always a laugh
as it often ends in alcohol fuelled wrath
in every country its worse than before
as it seems the world is ready for war
ready to fight over some oil
killing each other and to the winner the spoil
and the great mister bush has to have his say
using the world as puppets just to do things his way
no jobs for the people who are willing to work hard
do anything to get their name on a clocking on card
many desperate to be on the payroll
as they have had enough of life on the dole
but some people it suits them just fine
spending their giros on ciggies and wine
struggling to survive the day to survive the day to day grind
looking for a better life that you never seem to find
some of us know we will never have a lot
and we must really accept what we have got
so life will never turn out the way that we planned
welcome to the promised land

great as always
heres a poem i read
never kissed a girl
by sean gould
dweebs and geeks
meet up in drobes
talking of lazer beems
and sonic probes
faces of spots
and breath of garlic
the only thing they ever groped
is a remote control dalek
no strangers to big words
they quote them all with passion
the only words they dont know
are street cred and fashion
sadly these guys
wouldnt know what to do with an erection
the only thing that exites them
is their comic book collection
most of these poor nerds
have never had a lover
some of them are forty five
and still live with their mother
some of them cant get a lady
because of their nerdy looks
the only thing they take to bed
are harry potter books
they are too obsessed with aliens
from another world
that is why these dorks
have never kissed a girl
i suppose im just like them
but in one way im unique
i guess im the worlds only
sexually aware geek

you may reconise him
then again you may not
but this man is the most self absorbed vile specimens my poor ears have ever had the misfortune to listen to
he presents a number of podcasts and radio shows
but he shouldnt be allowed on air
his attitude towards people is disgusting
he cuts callers off and calls them idiots
when they have done nothing wrong
theres lots of vile things this cretin says to people who listen to his show and put food on his table
people call him up to speak to him on is show and he just rubbishes them
like one time a young lady goes live on webcam to speak with him
he as the nerves to call this girl a "minger"
then he had an asian man on the fone
this a*sehole turn round and say that he probably smells as washing is against his religion
and im not the only one who thinks his actions are vulger
a few weeks back a lady called his show to confront him of hios attitude
he just made her look small
anyone who dosent agree with him he just cuts the phone line off on them and calls them an idiot
theres on one idiot here mr lee
and thats YOU!!!

but people say the funniest things
so i wanna post some quotes that make me chuckle
the first one was from big brother the other night
(best said in a geordie accent)
"12.15pm and the housemates are playing football with a ball made out of sanitary towels"
but the best one was one i heard one the way to the match on saturday
picture the scene
i just stepped off the tram
was walking behind a gang of lads who looked like they had been on the beer all day
the police was at the exit as always
one was a young girl
no much older than 20
one of those lads turned round and said
"if yo wor a copper od shag ya"

my little ten year old cousin was down here from newcastle
she read them and asked me to do one for her
so here it is
by sean gould
little cousin perri
has come down to stay
i wouldnt say shes shy
infact she has a lot to say
when i walk in
she calls me lots of names
shes usually on the computer
playing sallys salon and other girlie games
she pulls lots of faces
that are very silly
she plays in the garden
with the dogs bonnie and billy
she helps auntie shona tidy up
and she works very well
then she will make cakes and biscuits
in the kitchen with michelle
then of a night time
she watches wrestling with uncle mark
then shes goes to sleep in her pink room
now that it is dark
shes been here for two whole weeks
and soon she will be gone
and i will think that ive gone deaf
when i walk into my moms
so heres to you perri
with your brother jack
this poem was wriiten by your cousin

the old bus station
by sean gould
now west brom has a public gallery
the black countrys answer to the tate
i remember when it was a bus station
where i used to catch the 78
every week as a child
we would catch the bus there
whilst helping mom carry her shopping
out of the queens square
she would give me some money
to go and buy some cakes
whilst she went in preedies
for a packet of fakes
as you walk into the station
you would be hit by a smell
it is an odour
i remember very well
smells like that
you can never forget
of urine and sweat
inside the station
theres a variety of folk
a mixture of the black and the white
the rich and the broke
two old ladies gossip
until there hearts content
whilst a cider soaked man
sings a drunken lament
a waiting man
unwraps a toffee
and a resting bus driver
drinks a well earned coffee
a little old lady
struggles with her bags
whilst young teenagers
experiment with fags
of course the toilets
were the worst in west brom
but now like the station
there flattened and gone
now the public building
proudly stands there
the home of the artist
and the culturally aware
theres no staggering drunks
with bottles of booze
no smoking teenagers
and no dirty smelly loos
so why dont you come in
and take a look around
a little piece of culture
in west bromwich town

my sister passed her driving test
i wrote a poem
the queen of the road
by sean gould
you have been trying hard to pass your test
i thought you might explode
and you have done it
and its time to hit the road
i know its been frustrating
these things always are
now you look a picture
sitting in your car
i remember when you rode round the block
on your little purple bike
but now you have a green car
and can go anywhere you like
you can go shopping
and buy yourself a frock
or you could drive to blackpool
but dont forget my rock
you will be driving daily
to your job at kfc
if theres any chicken left
bring some home for me
you must save some money
as petrol costs a load
so lets raise a glass
to michelle queen of the road

sorry its been so long
ive just been so busy
been doing night shifts etc.....
and i had big things planned for this blog
however im back in the drivers seat and ready to blog once more
im gonna go try and make this a daily blog
got lots of lovley little segments planned
so watch this space
anyway enough the babble
lets get blogging ......
it came to my attention recently that local old folks home had closed down
to be honest i was a little disturbed about this
i couldnt help but wonder where the residents have gone
so i left it to my imagination
and wrote a poem
by sean gould
the local home
for folks that are old
the wise and heroic
the brave and the bold
but due to a facelift
in the nearby town
the time has come
for the place to close down
naturally the resident were upset
these old troopers
didnt wanna move away
many of these people
had been there for many a year
then an old girl nora piped up
"hey guys i have an idea"
"if you want a better life"
"why dont you come with me"
"we should all build a boat"
"and sail off to sea"
they gathered round her
and they all agreed
and they started work
at a suprising speed
sid and bill
went to fetch some wood
and john with a dodgey hip
helped as best as he could
burt worked hard
with a hammer in his hands
whilst betty in her wheelchair
was holding all the plans
gilbert added windows
to let in the sun
ethal with arthritus
wasnt having much fun
norman put up a roof
to keep off the rain
whilst florance was shouting orders
from her zimmer frame
these pensioners worked their hardest
to get the boat ready
working at a pace
that was far from steady
they packed up and left
waved their carers farewell
the last ones to leave
were tom frank and nell
the boat stood there
the pride of the dock
the passengers arrived in their best
cardigans and floral frocks
they were glowing with excitment
their faces couldnt hide
the boat started the journey
as they waved goodbye with pride
they hadnt smiled this much in 80 years
i just just wish that you could see em
they are happy sunning it up
in the caribeen
noras idea worked out well
it was one that couldnt lose
she became the inventor
of the worlds first over 80s cruise

before i start this post just wanna do a bit of house keeping as the say.
pet sitting duties are over and im home.
i wouls also like to thank bob for his blog advice.
and hopefully the dates will work now.
anyway on to the blog.
im a little bit concerned.
the amount of knife crime on the streets.
but it really hit home last week when it happened only 5 minutes away from where i live .
so i wanted to do somthing.
so i wrote a little piece.
not based on anybody.
take a look.
an account of the parent of a murder victim
all people can do is ask me is how i feel.
how do i feel?
how am i supposed to feel?
i only wish i knew.
it wasnt supposed to happen this way.
he was supposed to out live me.
i was supposed to grow old watching him become a man.
meeting a nice girl.
he will never do any of this now.
he was only nineteen years old.
no boy is meant to die at the age of nineteen.
he saw a girl in touble.
an abusive boyfriend.
he couldnt just stand there and watch.
he tried to help her.
then the so called "man" pulled out a knife.
he was only twenty one himself.
what right did he have to take my sons life?
nothing more than a child himself.
why did he even have a knife?
what is this world coming to?
does everyone carry a knife now?
my son didnt.
now hes dead.
my little boy.
in my eyes he died a hero.
he will always be with me.
everywhere i go his picture will go with me.
i will never forget him.

im writing this blog from a different location.
as for the next week im on house sitting duty.
im at my parents house whilst they take a well earned break.
so im in charge of dogs fish plants and pigeons for the next week.
the plan was to just relax on the patio and top up my tan.
but look at the weather.
hope it gets better.
on a plus side they left plenty of food and drink.
ive done nothing but eat and drink since i got here.
gawd help me.
im now half way through my week of house sitting duties.
things are going quite well.
the animals are behaving theirselves.
except for when billy tore is bed apart.
and we saw a bit of sun yestarday.
i hope the summer shows its face before i go back to work.
im starting to miss my own bed.
my matress on the floor is not the same as my lovley double be.
ok i better go.
i havnt fed the dogs yet.
ill post soon.
and i leave you with a poem i wrote.
by sean gould
im on pet patrol duties
and im too tired to even talk
i have to get up at 5:30
to take billy for a walk
on the field he chases other dogs
hes looking for a fight
so i try and restrain him
hold him back wiith all my might
bonnie is pyning badly
shes really in a mood
she only leaves her basket
when she eats her food
watering the flowers
is a job i cannot bare
but the weather is so lousy
so mother nature is taking care
and to feed the pigeons
i have to climb a ladder
but being scared of heights
it does things to my bladder
i also look after the fish in the pond
give them something to munch
and i have to protect themw
hen the heron comes for lunch
so this house sitting lark
im starting to get the knack
but its me who will need a holiday
when they all come back
written 7th july 2008
to be honest i couldnt even tell you what i had for breakfast this morning.
im the kind of person who would go to a football match on a saturday afternoon and will have forgotten the score by the time i got home.
but there are some things i can remember very clearly.
everything about her.
i remember fancying her from a far for almost a year.
even though i never knew her properly.
i remember how long it took me to convince her to come out with me.
and i remember jumping for joy when she finally agreed.
and that tram ride on the way to our first meeting will stick in my mind forever.
my heart pounding like the ghost of john bonham was doing a drum solo inside of me.
and then i got off the tram.
i saw her.
she was standing there with bright red hair and a bright red coat to match.
then she smiled at me.
it was the most beautiful smile i have ever seen.
my heart melted like an ice lolly on an hot august afternoon.
from that moment i was addicted.
she was my drug.
then she spoke.
one simple word.
one beautiful word.
her voice was like the most beautiful song i ever heard.
it was like hearing your all your favorate singers together on one big beautiful stage singing all of your favorate songs at once.
as we walked through wolverhampton on a wet winter saturday afternoon it felt like summer in my heart.
i remember that first coffee we had together.
we had the most amazing chat.
we hit it off perfectly.
it was like we had known each other forever.
she was like every friend ive ever had rolled into one.
that day was perfect.
if you were to look up the phrase"perfect first date" this would be it,
i remember saying our goodbyes.
i did want to say goodbye.
as her bus pulled up she presented me with a painting she did for me.
it was inspired by one of my poems
that gesture meant te world to me.
that painting still remains one of my most treasured posessions.
i remember her bus pulling away.
as i waved her off i had four words in my head.
I LOVE THIS WOMAN.
all the way home it rained.
i didnt care.
the tram was late.
i didnt care.
i recieved a text message saying my football team had lost.
i didnt care.
i felt like a winner.
so i just didnt care.
nothing could of brought me down.
i remember getting off the tram.
walking along the canal.
as i walked.
i couldnt help myself.
i just had to do it.
i just stood there opened up my arms and shouted.
IM SEAN GOULD AND IM THE HAPPIEST MAN IN THE WORLD!
fortunatley i was only heard by a rather confused looking mallard.
from that day i was smitten.
i wrote some of my best poetry.
all inspired by her.
she was my muse.
from there on it was great.
we texted each other hourly.
every time we met i thought i was in heaven.
i remember valentines day.
i had an annonymus card.
i knew it was from her.
i compared the writing to all the letters and cards she had sent to me before.
which i happily treasured.
and when my suspicions were confirmed of course i was delighted.
sadly i was working valentines night.
but the following saturday.
we made up for it.
she made the best meal i have ever tasted.
they say the way to a mans eart is through his stomach.
this would of been true.
but she had already won my heart.
after the meal.
i felt like a king.
with my red haired queen sitting next to me.
i remember that night with a tear in my eye.
it was the happiest i have ever been.
all those silly things we did over the following months.
i remember evrything so fondley.
silly little things.
just lying on the bed doing a wordsearch.
sweet little things like that make me smile.
the way she would play around with my science fiction colectable figures.
i would of killed anyone one else for doing the same.
but not her.
she could of gotten away with anything.
those little things we did.
shopping was fun.
we would go our own way in hmv.
and then at the chckout how we would laugh when we both brought the same dvd.
or how she would laugh when i was too embarassed to buy underpants infrot of her but she freely brought knickers with me by her side and i couldnt help picturing in her them.
and i couldnt stop laughing when she showed me her bra in a pub.
she was somthing else.
i loved every moment with her.
there was this one afternoon we made these great big chocolate deserts but we couldnt finish them as they were so sickley.
afterwards we sat watching bad comedy movies from our childhood.
and one of the best nights out i ever had was going to this really classy restruant with her.
and how she laughed at the fact i had never hd an irish coffee.
that coffee warmed my stomach.
she warmed my heart.
but not for much longer.
that night was one of the last times i ever saw her.
im not exactly sure what happened between us.
but i guess the bubbles in the champaigne go flat sooner or later.
but im just glad i got to feel the fizz of those bubbles for a short time.
i cant remember many things.
but i remember her.
how can i forget her?
i see girls i think are her all the time.
theres a word in every sentence that reminds me of her.
every song i hear.
i find something i can relate to her.
i still have the cards and letters she sent.
i look at the painting she gave me every day.
i still have her picture on my mobile phone.
we still occaisionally text each other.
my heart still pounds every time we speak.
i remember her.
i remember how she made me feel.
i remember how it hurt when she said those three words.
lets be friends.
but i still remember her.
why would i want to forget her?

i just wanted to share a new poem that i wrote today.
ill explain the story behind it.
theres this new eastern european girl started at my work.
shes very beautiful and i have been admiring her from a far.
anyways she cant speak a word of english but ive been trying my charm.
and tuesday she walks up to me and places her mobile on piece of paper in my hand.
however this is not an english number so i cant use this number without a certain code but there really isnt any point as neither one of us speaks the others language so its gone down hill from there on.
so it fell at the first hurdle.
anyway heres the poem .
lost in translation
by sean gould
whats a poor boy
when he doesnt
have the same mother tongue as you
you are such a catch
you really look so fine
but you speak in a language
that just isnt mine
you dont understand
anything you are told
even your mobile number
has a foreign dialing code
i try to be nice
and you think im being rude
all the lovley words i say
seem to get you in a mood
at times i think i upset you
but not sure if i do
because you dont understand
when i try to ask you
im looking for little signals
but theres nothing i can find
to be honest i have enough trouble

anyway i better go and throw some clothes in a bag as for the next week im house sitting for my parents.
i hope they have beer:)
you may have noticed i have changed the name of this blog to the romantic geek.
