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
window
pane

I
wonder
if it’s
cold
where
you are

Or are
you
now
just
over
heating

In
somebody
else’s
car

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

Captainless

I still don’t really understand

Why I was left feeling so at sea

As I was always the one

Who steadied our ship

It’s not like you ever looked after me


Without You

Life
is just
shit
without
you

I’ve got
nothing
left to
hold
on to

If
only
you were
still
here

Then I’d
have
nothing
left
to fear

Little Women

I think you’ll find

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
he
says
he
does

Well
you
had
your
chance

But
you
rebuffed
my
advance

So go
jump
in front
of a
bus

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
making do

House Warming

Especially now

The weather is turning

I wish our home fires

Were still burning


Slippers

I
miss
you

When
my
feet
are
cold

And
how
you

Would
always
warm
them
so

There’s Always One

I’m sure that we can all recount

How we met our lovers

But some such stories

Of our former glories

Are more significant than others

That Split Second

When I saw you
sleeping there

I couldn’t help
but stop and stare

Probably because
I was drunk too

Although nowhere
near as drunk as you

(And Me)

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
you say

But
what
you do
instead

Then
you’ve
fucked
up

On
both
counts
mate

So I’d
be careful
where you
tread

Unresolved

You should never go to bed

On an argument

That is what they say

But what do you do

When he always blames you

And you argue every day


‘Turn Away On Your Side…’

Was
I always
wrong

Or was
I sometimes
right

Not that

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

His Best Friend

We both met up again last night

And as we held each other tight

We reveled in our connection to you

Before parting in the morning hue


Your Birthday

Yesterday
we
remembered
you.

Together,
in this
city, just
us two.

We laughed,
and smoked
and drank
too much beer.

Both of us
wishing you
were still
fucking here.

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

Better This Way

I’m glad that you agree

She said

It’s most definitely for the best

They’d never forgive us anyway

He said

If we ever confessed


In Another Life, Perhaps

What
happened

night

She
said

Must
never
happen
again

It
pains me
so much
to say it

better off

What A Waste

All those petty squabbles you had

The cold shoulders and silent treatment

They all come home to roost,

You know,

When you’re dealing with bereavement

When

You can deny it

All you want

Claim that you

Would never stray

But if I was to check

What’s on your neck

The truth would be plain as day


Love Bites

You

It Wasn’t Fun For Me

I will never answer

To you again

As what you called banter

I call pain


Sylvia’s Sister

Maybe I’ll drink until I’m sick

Maybe I’ll dance like a prick

Maybe I’ll smoke ten to the dozen

Maybe I’ll put my head in the oven

Either way one thing is true

It has got fuck all to do with you

“I know that’s what people say – you’ll get over it. I’d say it too. But I know it’s not true. Oh, you’ll be happy again, never fear. But you won’t forget. Every time you fall in love it will be because something in the man reminds you of him.”

– Betty Smith

Unreciprocated Love

It will never be

The right time for me

I just have to accept it

As I cannot take

The abject heartache

Each time I am rejected


Each Time We Meet

Why isn’t
it me,
she asks,

Why can’t
it be us?

For I
already
love another,

As her

crumble

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

you

And I
made my

But
then
I met
him

And
within

I’d never

Out with the old

And in with the new

Starting again

With eyes wide shut

More of a chance

I’ll avoid the glut

Starting again

With eyes wide open

Less of a chance

Hearts will be broken

Hoping that you will choose me?

Well, I’m worth way more than that

If it’s her or me?

I have no idea

And then

You just threw it away

So I’ll never

Make you another one

Until

My dying day
