Experimentation

You were

Never destined

To be

Mrs Right

But as

Mrs Right Now

You were fun

So it’s good

That we dropped it

And eventually

Just stopped it

As no real harm

Was done


In Another Life, Perhaps

What
happened
the other
night

She
said

Must
never
happen
again

It
pains me
so much
to say it

He
said

But
we are
better off
as friends

The Second Time Around

The first time

It was fine

As I was young and naive

I didn’t know

Where it would go

So it was easy to just believe

But now I’m older

And my heart colder

I need to be assured

That you intend

To keep up your end

Before my commitment is secured


Going Down The Rabbit Hole

If you don’t mean what you say,

Perhaps we should both just walk away.

Now.

Clear Cut

To be fair

If you did

I wouldn’t need

To confess

As it radiates

From me

Like stale beer

And cigarettes


Emptiness

At one time
perhaps
I would have
said yes

But the
desire now
I no longer
possess

Should you
ever try
your love
to profess

To this
emptiness
inside I
would confess

‘Right Here Right Now’

It’s funny how

To bookish types

I certainly was once attracted

Whereas now I’m older

I’ve no time for the smoulder

And need something far less protracted


Timerous Beasties

When
I picture
my
youth

I see
you
and
me

Sitting
beneath
that old
oak tree

You
reading
a book

My
head
on your
shoulder

Both
of us
hoping

The
other
is
bolder

Mistaking Kindness For Desire

I have never spoken

About that night

As to betray him

Would be be unfair

He only hit on me

Because he was ill, you see,

And his ability to judge

Impaired


Indiscretion

It was
what
it was

And
whilst
we
had
fun

Now
it is
what
it is

The
guilt

begun

Some have beauty

Some have braun

Some have charm and flair

Some of them even

Have half a brain

The

That

I’d

Heroic

I’ve never been easy company

People like me rarely are

But well done for persevering

For that you are a star


Misled

You say
it’s not me,
it’s you.

But
you’re
a liar,

And we

that’s true.

From Each Perspective

I was just trying

He said

To force your hand

I never wanted to leave

I didn’t want to lose face

She said

Or wear my heart

On my sleeve

We just wish

They said

You’d told us the truth

Instead of making us believe

That you wanted to be with us

They said

When all that time

We were being decieved


Concequences

You said
you wanted
to leave

And I
didn’t ask
you to stay

So now
we lie to
someone else

And that’s
the price
we pay

Fun While It Lasted

It wasn’t that

I wanted to stop

But I was scared that we’d get caught

That’s why I knew

What I had to do

Even though it left us distraught


Condensation

As the
wind
rattles
the

I
wonder
if it’s

Or are

In

A Sucker For A Drummer

I cannot deny

That there are times

When I imagine the singer in the sack

But mostly the guy

Who really catches my eye

Is the one with the sticks at the back


‘Outlandos d’Amour’

As my
soul
swoons
to his
song

And my
toes
tap to
his
tunes

I
remember
the

I’ve Seen You Looking

It’s only hypothetical

Because too much time has passed

Though I’m pretty sure

If I wanted more

You’d say yes, if asked


Hypothetically Speaking

Do you
ever think
of me

In those
moments
you have spare

Do you
ever
dream

Of running
your fingers
through my hair

Do you ever
imagine how
it would feel

If you
held your
hand in mine

Do you ever
long to look
into my eyes

And feel
our souls
entwine

Resignation

What can you do

When you’ve been mistaken

When you realise your life

You have forsaken

When you can’t go back

And start again

When it’s only regret

That does now remain


Double Take

It’s only
now I
realise
I’ve
played
this all
wrong

And it
actually
should
have
been
you all

There really isn’t much to find

Well I will never stop looking

Until the end of time


Digging For Gold

We’re in charge now

We say when

We say how

No longer will we be

All small and meek

We will approach you

If it’s sex

We seek


Too Late

You
only
want
me
now

Because

I Tried To Warn You

She never did see it

And now you’re apart

You have been left

With wounds that smart

If only you’d listened

To my remark

You could’ve saved yourself

The broken heart


You Deserve More

I wish you
could see
yourself with a
different view

And know
there are so
many things to
love about you

My only hope
is that she
will see it
again soon too

Then perhaps
you could both
just stop

Losing That Loving Feeling

Are you sure that you’re done

She said

You’re not even up for a fling?

I am absolutely sure

He said

I’m no longer ‘up’ for anything


A Solo Affair

I’m fine
by myself
without
all of
that

Just me
here
alone
in my
own flat

I don’t
need to

As frankly
I never
really
liked it
much

Their wedding day

All of that promise

On display

It’s such a shame

It ended that way

And now love’s young dream

Has faded away


The(ir) Split

It’s
not
about
what
she
did

Or
what

either

It’s
about
how

As for

This little minx that I portray

I’d get my coat and hat

And without looking back

Go have myself a field day

I
won’t

A Younger Model

Will you still love me

When I am old and grey

Will you still want me

To touch you in that way

Will you still need me

To kiss you goodbye each day

Or will you just find someone else

And simply walk away


A Risky Business

We really

This one was a warning

To a guy who should’ve known better

He’d hurt my friend

So this rhyme I penned

To let him know how much he’d upset her


Trip Wires

If
love is
not what

But
what
you do
instead

Then
you’ve

So I’d
be careful

The Eclipse

It happened quite by accident

As when she left the tent that morning

There was no way she could have known

That a whole new era was dawning

But as they both sat drinking wine

With their connection forming

She began to realise, at last,

Her heart was capable of rewarming


The Lost (We)ekend

I
don’t
know how
we got here

But
here
we are
nonetheless

We
should
just make
the best of it

Before
we have
to reassess
