You May Love

You may love – be sure to keep your distance.
You may care but don’t beget insistence.
You may wish; you won’t get what you wanted
It never could have been the same as what you thought – you’re thwarted. Continue reading

Stop, drop and exit

No Love Lost

 

Slide-shifting excuses like sunshine through trees

Pinning shadows to mirrors in efforts to see

But no rhyme or good reason conjoins you to me

It’s time now to stop, drop and exit:

It’s time for goodbye.

 

I’ve not paid attention to things that I should

Lost hours in daydreams, none of which come to good

I’ve spent too much time on “If only I could…”

It’s time now to stop, drop and exit:

It’s time for goodbye.

 

The stars in your eyes were the place I got caught

Though slowly I’ve realised I’ll always fall short

My untutored heart needed this lesson taught

It’s time now to stop, drop and exit:

It’s time for goodbye.

 

Will it e’en reach your radar, this thunderstorm news?

Ignore this blip, else trust turns into abuse.

I know I won’t cuckold the one who you choose

It’s time now to stop, drop and exit:

It’s time for goodbye.

 

I need to re-frame – get some air – change my view

Unhook from this refrain – make everything new

If I’d only stop wishing and wishing for you

It’s time now to stop, drop and exit:

It’s time for goodbye.

 

This tempest will calm and the feelings will fade

I’ll have no more need of this vain masquerade

But know you were much-needed light to my shade

It’s time now to stop, drop and exit:

It’s time for goodbye.

 

 

 

 

Unhook

I have no need of me

 

Somewhere in the place twixt sleep and awake

Somewhere in a world without heartache

Fix your eyes on the stars and keep going ’til I break

Unhook! Unhook!

Or this will make me pay.

 

Lost within the guiles of my own mind

Charming me with dreams I wish defined

My future, but my path’s already signed

Unhook! Unhook!

Could this lead you astray?

 

It’s likely overreaction to your care

‘Gainst life, offset, so bright but going nowhere

For now, I’m jealous – I don’t want to share

Unhook! Unhook!

What toll will this make us pay?

 

Just let me be a child with wayward heart

Let me indulge in all that you impart

Just wait – I’m not yet ready to restart

Unhook! Unhook!

I’m lost, but I don’t want to find my way.

Reality checks

Heart

 

Times inside my mind spent

In glorious, sun-kissed haze

Turning everything around me

Alight, on fire, ablaze

The teenager I never was

Is reveling in these days

But reality checks and everything crashes down.

 

My heart begins to sparkle

On the edge of fantasy

Oh, the distance I would cross

To make you real to me

Our lives could be so perfect

And love win, eventually

Then reality checks, and everything crashes down.

 

Not ready to relinquish yet

This silly, pointless game

Let me imagine holding you

And whispering your name

Let me conceive of happiness

In light; in love – insane

Reality checks – and everything’s crashing down.

 

No more, no more! I’ll check these thoughts

Lest I get too confused

If you could only read my mind

You’d be…alarmed? Amused?

I’ll cling to this – our futures

Are in someway, somehow fused

Reality checked – already t’was all crashed down.
