Sittin' here, smilin'
before I get dialin'
Was a tawny autumn afternoon,
sun dappling through the red and gold marquee.
Fading warmth of summer past,
and the smell of cosy evenings on the breeze.
With our words we bridge the miles
are drawn together
to share the smiles
as we explore this new addiction we've found
Sharp darkness, enshrouds,
nerve endings tearing.
Something stirs my memory
I pause, look deep into your eye...
No! ! Surely it cannot be! !
'This is so weird! ' I sigh.
When we were young
an unexpected trip to the fair
Grandparents visiting..what did you bring us?
I have someone else sharing my physical
she knows it, and I know it
We circle each other, warily
wrestling for control
watching as they run defiantly across the plains
plumes of breath heralding their arrival
the earth pounding with the song of their hooves
necks arched proudly and tails flying wildly
My thoughts turn to you tonight
as I lie in this sleepless void
Harvest moon mocking me through the glass
Longing chokes my heart
What a void you've left in my life
do you know how much you're missed?
how many people you affected throughout your life?
I look at your picture every day, it still hurts
