Early Birds Catch Worms

The problem

With jumping in

Feet first

Is that

Both parties

Are unrehearsed


Playing For Time

Calm your jets

Drink your tea

If love will wait

Then so can we

Too Late Now

I don’t know how it’s happened

And I can’t even tell you why

But, it seems, I’ve grown old

In love with the wrong fucking guy


Set In Stone

Neither of
us knows

If the life
we chose

Will work out
for the best

Ouch

If only I

Had seen more sense

And not fallen foul

Of my incompetence

Perhaps our relationship now

Wouldn’t be past tense

And I wouldn’t still feel

These splinters from the fence


Just Passing By

It was you

That was

The one

For me

But a future

Between us

I just

Couldn’t see

I suppose

That now

None of that

Matters

For you’ve

Moved on

While I’m left

In tatters

One Decision, One Thousand Lifetimes

I’m not sure if this notion

Of there only ever being one person

For us to love is true

But what I can say for sure

Is even if there were a hundred more

I would only ever want you


Galaxies

If
I was
to
decide

To
leave
this
place

I’d
still
find
you
again

In
any
time or
space

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.

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
along

Taking Back Control

I know what you did

That day

How you made sure

Your pain

Stopped


Were You Afraid Of Dying?

It
was
awful
to see
you
waste
away

Neither
of us
knowing
why

Now
my
only
hope

Is
you
are
smoking
dope

At
that
great
gig in
the
sky

Bonne Idée

It would’ve been all too easy

To enact the ultimate ‘au revoir’

So just in case I was tempted

I made sure to sell my car


#8 The Optimist

This is

A message

From your favourite

Depressive

To say all

Is well with me

Here’s hoping

It lasts

That those days

Have passed

And I don’t drive

Into a tree

A Repeat Performance

That being said

Given what happened in bed

One thing is certainly true

If I ever planned

To have a two night stand

It would most definitely be with you


In Beero Veritas

Who’d have thought

That we’d come to

Both half dead

And needing the loo

Perhaps we should

Have thought this through

Instead of getting drunk

And doing the do

‘Four Seasons In One Day’

I’ve always been indecisive

But now it’s worse than ever

The back and forth is so divisive

I’m about as reliable as the weather


Confusion

No!
No!
No!

Yes!
Yes!
Yes!

How am
I supposed

what to do

When my
head’s
in such

You’ll Never See Me Again

The best thing that I ever did

Was my own fear to subdue

It may have took me a while

But nothing beats the smile

I now wear in spite of you


Soon

Life

so much
better
without
all your
bullshit
in it

Now
I know
for sure
that
I’ll soon
be removing

Unwilling To Submit

I asked for you

To give me time

And space to clear my head

But as you’ve shown

You can’t leave me alone

Let’s just call it quits instead


Over

Time may heal

Hearts can mend

Until then accept

This is the end

There were quite a few before him

As I tried each one for size

But if there’s no more after him

Then I wouldn’t be surprised

I remember

When

Pain Free

It was always a promise

And never a threat

I just haven’t decided

How I’ll do it, yet


Crying Wolf

Remember when I told you

I wished that I was dead

And you thought it was all

Just nonsense in my head

Well maybe now you’ll realise

You will finally get to see

The worst thing that you ever did

Was not to believe me

Starting again

With eyes wide shut

More of a chance

I’ll avoid the glut

With eyes wide open

‘I Wake Up Alone With It All…’

Remember you said

You’d love me forever

And you begged me

To let you to stay

Well I’m beginning

To wonder

If that

Was a blunder

And if I should’ve

Walked away


Happier

Perhaps we’d
have been
happier
as strangers,

For never
having met.

Perhaps we’d

With nothing

Larkin Had It Right

If I’d had a decent role model

Maybe I’d know what to do

But as my childhood was a debacle

I’ve got nothing to compare this to


The Reverse

I’ve never felt happiness,
I don’t know what it is.

I’ve never even seen happiness,
But I’m pretty sure it’s not this.

Who you want to let go

And who it is you want to retain

For there is no way

I can spend another day

Going over all this again

That’s what you had when you were alive

And now three years on

Since you’ve been gone

It still feels like me who died

The Self Fulfilling Prophecy

It doesn’t seem to matter

Who tries to talk me up

I cannot ever escape the feeling

That I am a total fuck up

It started when I was young

When I was told I was a peice of shit

That I’d never amount to anything

Despite whatever it was I did

Even into adulthood

That was always on my mind

Although I have since met people

Who are all supportive and kind

But now as I stand here

At another fork in my life’s tale

I just wish I could believe them

Instead of those who convinced me I’d fail


Flightless Bird

If only
I believed
you

Things
would be
so different

If only I
was who
you see

Life

magnificent
