Love opened his arms, he welcomed me
Into that warm embrace
But it wasn't enough, not enough for me
I was still part of the race.
She was like a rainbow
A delight after a storm
Shimmering so elegantly
And vibrant against the backdrop of sky
Cheated of childhood
Sharks ripped a toddler to shreds
Screamed at the paternal threads were sliced.
A tiny egg, cracked apart,
Wow, you are the bomb
You attack my senses
You charge my soul
When you're near I'm set on fire
Costa coffee, cup large than the table
Steam rising into the warmth of the day
Pleasant chatter, narrow lanes of old
Blue plaques on terrace walls
Hungry all the time
Unrelenting hunger pains me.
Needing knowledge, release,
Therefore, I have no answers
No reasons echo in my empty cavity of mind
Solutions are hidden in complexity cupboards
Doors jammed shut with rhyme
Locked in the attic
Sat in the dark
While other's voices
Are heard in the park.
It's okay, I can screw up, didn't you know son,
This is just a rehearsal, I can make mistakes
And cock up, cause next time I'm reborn
I'll have learnt from them
My wintry friends were out today
Waving cold, bare arms in the breeze,
'Hello friend, ' whispered the trees.
