Work It Out - Poem by Christine Davidson

Life isn’t that hard to figure out
You live you die you fall about
Fall in love, falling out
Frustration makes you shout
Hold on to yourself
No user manual
I fell over you. You tripped me up
Didn’t apologise for the damage you caused
Just saw your own needs, own desires
Too proud and selfish I called you
To work it out
Ah love, so silly, so simple, so complicated
My thoughts so complex
My expressions so plain
I want to tell it all
I spit out words in vain
One Art
My ode to you
I lost you like I lost my keys
A continent or two
My world were you
I don’t feel that now. I’m my own world
You can join in a bit
But don’t expect to fit
I’m different.
