PULLED TO BITS

FORGOTTEN MOMENTS OF PURE BLISS,

A SNOWY SATURDAY MORNING…

WAITING FOR A ROOM TO BE FREE.

WE SAT IN A CAFE, CHOCOLATE AND CAKE,

LOOKING OUT ACROSS THE BIG FLAKES FALLING…

KNOWING THAT THIS MOMENT WOULD COST,

WEEKS APART, INTERMINABLE LONGING.

 

AND THOSE FEW SPARE HOURS,

A JEWEL IN THE DESERT,

AFTER SO MANY STOLEN KISSES…

LIKE TWO TEENAGERS AGAIN,

THIS THE FIRST IN A BED.

WE GAVE GIFTS AND CALLED IT CHRISTMAS,

BUT KNEW THE PAUCITY OF THE HOLIDAY.

 

AND AFTER YOU DROPPED ME OFF,

TWO STREETS AWAY…

AND MY HEART SANK TO MY BOOTS,

AND MY HEAD FLIPPED, A TICK CONSTANT,

LIKE A SPASM, A TOURETTE’S TIC…

I DON’T WANT TO BE HERE!

 

NINE YEARS AGO TODAY,

AND THE OUTCOME WAS PERFECT,

ALL YOUR FUTURE LIFE WAS SHARED,

BATHED IN MY LOVE…

AND I BATHED IN YOU,

UNTIL THAT NIGHT…

THAT PULLED ME TO BITS.

DALE ‘M’
