Bull Hawking


Before Both Of Us Can Feel....Part 1 - Poem by Bull Hawking

I should have been afraid
afraid of loosing you
utopia was a topic
but my trop-ics were too few

I should have been afraid
afraid of loosing you
but I never really owned you
never kept you on my pen

you were only ever there
only in my mind
nothing ever happened
but what happened in my mind

If I could have only kept you
kept you as my friend
I wouldn't be like gold ore
gold you never mined

If our troth had only
lived in truth

    lol..you are right about the spelling of loosing but I misspell words for effect....it is a vocal clue to lengthen the vowel I am offending. in the end I meant if only our troth had lived in truth....troth....being an antiquated word meaning....loyal or pledged faithfulness. Thanks for your comment. (Report) Reply

    It's losing. Drop the extra o.
    Great title and I love the ending... But did you mean truth lived in truth? (Report) Reply
