I Lost My Love - Poem by Peter Strugnell

I lost my love for sure, but I don't know when
we argued the time of day, we knew we were through
we'd bicker like children, oh here we go again
It's been over a while now for me, it's been over longer for you.

I lost my love in a corner of my mind
I put it there with, everything else I've neglected
what ceases to exist, you surely cannot find
and nothing was saved, nothing left to be collected.

I lost my love, kinda careless don't you think
head down and running, I never thought to look up
in the gap between the cooker, and the kitchen sink
repairing the hurt was in vain, like spooning water from a broken cup.

I lost my love, on a bleak mountain face
we were attached by a chord, when the blizzard hit
when the weather cleared, you were gone without a trace
you'd untied the knot, turned around and quit.

I lost my love, in the routine of the day
bored of myself, and the washing machine hub
the colours of our linen, have all but faded to grey
we just couldn't get them back, and therein lies the rub.

I lost my love, when I closed the front door
the tremble of your lip, I should have read the signs
but I'd seen that look so many times before
you had your path to travel, and I guess I had mine.

I lost my love, a sad 'adieu' to what has been
we have both moved on, or simply turned the page
the tales i could tell, the things that we've seen
the past casts it's shadow, on a bygone age.
