We’ve Come Too Far To Go Back Now

Now you come

Begging for love

Cap in outstretched hand

But I know better

And I will never

Erase my line in the sand


Incomprehensible

It’s all
just so
fucking
bizarre

How the
tables
have
turned

With
things
now as
they are

And
what we
both have
learned

The Kindest Thing To Do

It’s not that I don’t want to

He said

But we have been here before

I can’t give you what you need

She said

So I won’t ask you any more


It’s Not Real

I think
I love
you

He
said

But
I cannot
wait

If you
loved
me

She
said

You
wouldn’t
hesitate

What A Difference Three Months Makes

Run around

Jump up and down

That arrogant prick

Has just left town

As it turns out

He was a brutish lout

Intent on flinging my heart about

Next time I’ll know

Not to lower my wall

And for romantic bullshit

I will not fall


Quickstep

Run around

Jump up and down

There’s a new love in town!

He’s really neat

And ever so sweet

This black heart skips a beat

I think that now

I’m ready for more

As I wait for him to whisk me

Across the dancefloor

Clocking In

Never

Do I feel this more

Than each time I walk

Through that door


Sown Up

I don’t feel better.

I haven’t forgotten.

I’ve just stopped telling you,

How I feel.

D Minus

I’m going to have to leave

He said

But please know I tried my best

It’s no problem to me at all

She said

As you’d already failed the test


High Maintenance

I’m not looking for just anyone

For not just anyone will do

It’ll take someone superhuman

To survive what I’ll put them through

Monogamy

After all is said and done

With battles lost and wars won

I’m starting to think differently

And relationships now are not for me


Expired

If you no longer love each other

Then what’s the fucking point

Just staying together to destroy each other

Noses always out of joint

Why not just call it quits

As it’s clear neither of you tries

That has to be better than being miserable

Until one of the two of you dies

Too Much Effort

Why don’t you just move on

They ask

And find another man

I’ve neither the inclination

I reply

Or the attention span


Stupid Questions

Do
you
still
think
of him

They
ask

Every
single
day

I
reply

Will
you
ever
stop

They
ask

Not
until
the
day
I die

And Lots Of It

If love was all you needed

Then we’d all be happy as fuck

So it’s about time that we conceded

What you actually need is luck


Nowhere Near

I love you

You love me

If only that was enough

For us to be happy

Empty Handed

As
I lie
here

Alone
again

I can
only
assume

I
wasn’t


Bounty

I
can
only
hope

I’m
worth
the
wait

The Replacement

I only ever wanted you

But then he arrived instead

Now there’s no chance

In any circumstance

Of you sleeping in my bed

The Other Irish Rover

I’m
sorry
I told
you
I love
you

He
said

I
just
did it
for
the
craic

There’s
no
need to
apologise

She
said

Just
don’t
expect
I’ll
say it
back

A Kind Man

A kind man once said to me

You can be anything you want to be

But it’s hard to believe that you could matter

In amongst all this chatter

A kind man once said to me

You can do anything you want to do

But it’s hard to believe that could be true

When you live your life as I do

A kind man once said to me

You can say whatever you want

But it’s hard to believe you could speak that way

When you’ve never felt that it’s okay

A kind man once said to me

You are capable of more than you think

But it’s hard to believe you could make that link

As your heart, once more, begins to sink

Locked Down

I
don’t
know
about
you

But
I can
certainly
say
for
me

That
this
is
definitely
not

Like
I thought
it
would
be

Little Sister

I am not
who you
think I am

So please
don’t look
up to me

If you
only knew
the truth

You’d cut
down our
family tree

Obviously Oblivious

Just
look
what
you’ve
done

She
said

You’ve
gone
and
broken
my
heart

Don’t
pretend
you
didn’t
know

He
said

That
this
would
happen
from
the
start

Reassured

The relief
is palpable

My anxiety
is pacified

Our normality
is restored

Thank fuck
you replied
