Is it bad to be alone?
Come on, what choice you got?
Not easy you know
To feel you own the lot.
Accept what’s down to you
The shit which gets you down
Make a new true
Get up from your ground.
Life has no meaning
Until you give it yours
No-one else is leaning
Against your open doors.
You told yourself a story
To make the pieces fit
Your future though is glory
You can rewrite it
With you I live and laugh
Without I cry and die.
Ages far apart, but
I never think about them.
Except when others ask
How much – ho ho ho ho.
More than you will ever know.
Two years on and we’re still here and feeling
You boredly lonely and ever love-needing.
Me over-filled and with plenty to give you,
You out to find the best door to go through.
Me convinced that I’ve finally found it.
Seeing it’s open you side step around it.
How can we know it will work in the long run?
We laugh long and loudly, we smile in the strong sun
We lie down at night time, we stir in the feathers
We’ve been to dark places, we’ve lost all our tethers.
Come down with me lovely, let’s leave now together
Run fast, hold tight and take off forever.
The sunset here is umber graded to dark blue and brightly
Lower darker, higher lighter
but hazy through my eyes dew wet nightly.
I want to feel up as I did before,
see things more clearly, fun-filled and dancing.
You never ready for that kind of binding,
running to skirt the risk of advancing.
The bitten lip, the eyes of flash anger,
loud conversation into white fingered smartphone
No grudges to bare, just patience and karma,
and pills to fill in the gaps with no drama.
