Captives

Was it you

Or was it me

Who soldiered on

Too blind to see

That it was destined

To end like this

With us both falling

Into the abyss

‘Counts As A Treat’

How you
used to
make me
laugh

Is
etched
on my
soul
like a
lithograph

That
comes
alive
only
in my
dreams

But
leaves me
falling
apart
at the
seams

Upon
waking

The Far Side

You
don’t
have
to be
here

For
me to
know
you
care

You
don’t
have
to be
near

For
me to
know
you’re
there

Xxx

Inkling

I think you feel

The way I do

That your heart beats

Like mine does too

That your mind wanders

On the same path as me

That you also dream

Of when you’ll be free

Schadenfreude

I know
I really
shouldn’t
laugh

At her
seemingly
heartfelt
epitaph

But I
know you
would’ve
had a giggle

At such
overwrought
sentimental
drivel

Xxx

Jailbirds

Can
we go
for a
walk?

No
pressure
or
anything

But I
just
want
to
talk

About
you

About
me

And
about
what
we’ll
do

Once
we
are
free

The Two Of Us

I don’t want just anyone,

I only want you.

To feel you,

Touch you,

Wrap my arms around you.

Hold you,

Squeeze you,

Bring me to my knees,

You.

It’s always been you.

Reflex

I can’t
believe
it’s taken

All this
time to
see

That the
bully is
not you

But,
actually,
it’s me

Impressed

If
only
you
were
still
here

You
would
be so
proud
of me

Of how
I now
stick
up for
myself

And how
I’m
living
my life
care
free

The Bargain

Who knows
when our
time will
come

But I fear
it’s not
just yet

For you
have to
forgive
yourself

And I
have to
forget

United

If
you
stand
by
me

Then
I’ll
stand
by
you

For in
this
world
of
treachery

It’s
all
we
can
do

‘Some Sunny Day’

Maybe
one day
we’ll meet
again

But no one
knows
if that’s
true

So until
such time
as that day
may come

I’ll just
lie here
and dream
of you

The Edge

I’m on
the cusp
of something new

But I
don’t know
quite what to do

I just can’t
decide what’s
false and what’s true

Or when
would be the
right time to tell you

Me & You

Watch
me
and
you’ll
sense
it

Touch
me
and
you’ll
know

Tell
me
and
you’ll
feel
it

Hold
me
and
don’t
let go

Healing

Some
days

You are
so close
to me

Some
days

You
are so
far

Some
day

I’ll have
nothing to
remind me

Other than
this scar
