I'Ll Be Okay
I wonder if when looking back
We'll discover where we went off track?
If I’ll understand why you turned your back?
With such conviction you walked away.
Or maybe there will be a time.
When wounds have healed and you are mine.
And we see all this as an obvious sign,
That together we should be.
I do not know for which I hope.
And Life is such a slippery slope.
Not wanting to dangle at the end of a rope.
I’m just tired of being hurt.
Not sure where I’ll end up next.
My feelings are worn and my mind perplexed.
The thought of continuing makes...
Down With The Cynical
Apprehension of what’s to come, experience of things past.
Our fear of re-occurrence, quite a shadow it can cast.
Enough to always rob the joyful light of something new.
Deny it all you want, you know this to be true.
Maybe the experience was not yours, perhaps it belonged to a friend.
Possibly they were cut so deep even you needed time to mend.
Their wounds linger still, taking time for healing over.
And for this duration your caring feelings are left stranded and quite sober.
