Poetry by Mark Lawrence

I've no pretentions to being a poet. However, I do write poems. The ones listed below selected themselves by virtue of having been stolen and presented on the internet as the works of other people. I think if they're good enough for people to want to plagiarize, then they're good enough for me to own up to.


Cut me from blue skies,

Wash me with rain,

The wind took my smile,



Build me a new soul,

Use something better,

Don’t take such mean measure,

This time.


Give me some soft words,

To speak from a blunt tongue,

Let me like kindness,



I’m worn from this knowing,

I’m tired of not changing,

Let me go back there,
