A Minute An Hour Is A Distance - Poem by Mark Heathcote

A minute an hour is a distance in any bodies head/heart
When they're alone with their own expiry date
Thinking sadly, towards, their own end, their own death.
Laying there on some long forgotten shore
Just as some long forgotten distant shadow
Newly approaches you up ahead.
Where purple headed heather clouds, storm.
Like a thunder cloud gave over to its own last roll call.
Reaching down into me/you: Oh, when I fall…
It's like the ghost of a shadow has come to call.
That lacerates, that cuts into us all …
None of us can lean-on bear upright stand tall
When your love has been the one!
The one true insider influence to mortally wound you.
Who nailed you/your heart to a cross to pay what cost?
A minute an hour is a distance when it's your hearts own, roll call.
When, it's your love, your life that you've lost
When it's your love that is dead.
A minute an hour is a distance in any bodies head/heart
When, you've got to go on living alone, awaiting deaths roll call.
Oh, instead of just feeling free
Like a wave returning out to sea
An hour, a minute is a distance you just can't fathom.
Don't you believe me?
A minute an hour is a distance in your head
A minute an hour is a distance
A distance in any body's heart
A minute an hour is a distance
A second is a distance too late
When you've need of another last chance to pay your debts.

A mile is a distance in my head 24.2.2001

A mile is a distance in my head
When I'm alone death...
Like a distant shore
Where the heather clouds of a storm
Like a thunder cloud, call...
Reaching down
Into me
When I fall...
Like the ghost of a shadow
Cuts us all...
None of us
Stand tall...
When your love has been the one
True outsider to wound you
And nailed your hearts payload to the cross
A mile is a distance when it's your heart
When it's your love that you've lost
When it's your love that is dead
A mile is a distance in your head
When you've got to go on living
Instead of just falling free
Like a wave returning out to sea
A mile is a distance can't you see
Do you believe me
A mile is a distance in your head
A mile is a distance
A distance in my heart
A mile is a distance in your head
A mile is a distance
When you've need
Of turning another corner
When you know that your heart is dead
A mile is a distance in your head
A mile is a distance
A mile is a distance in my head.
