False Goodbye - Poem by Gerard Heathcote

You turned my life upside down
Resting on a roadside verge in a heap
Slag and debris left by careless men
Gave me visions as you breathed your last
Into the december air and the dragons teeth

A gloomy winters day before you left
A journey begged be by my side
Cocos diner as my eyes wept to say goodbye
I didn't mean a last farewell
We always came back from parting hell

Christmas cards exchanged with final words
You're face so sad our hands touched
Why oh why did I tell my lie
Just so I could let christmas go by

Arm slinged, funny hat long coat
as lovers we would to others be
but this time not likely I was free
by my car you held me tight
we kissed in darkness of coming night
