Made Of The Same Cloth

Slow and gentle tear in our fabric
Runs from edge to core
Torn from side to side
One made two, together no more
In the moments after parting
Frayed seams reaching out
The two still fit perfectly
A match, a marriage, doubt
We are made of the same cloth
Should two halves not make a whole?
Why separate? Why not mend?
In tearing what was the goal?

Lonely Empty Hurt

Walking surrounded by strangers
Sat at home with the kids watching tv
Working at the office in teams of colleagues
But not one of them ever sees me
I could change my face they wouldn’t comment
Transform my world they wouldn’t care
Be another person they wouldn’t notice
It’s like they aren’t aware I’m even there
I observe their every movement
Discuss the ins and outs, what they do
Pour over their every tiny foible
This is a one way tunnel I’m walking through
It’s lonely at home in my kitchen
I’m lonely in the office back at work
I’m lonely when friends surround me
So lonely, so empty, it hurts

Neg and Nag and Pick

Negatives all the time
Feeling pulled apart
With so much wrong with me
Why did we even start
You clearly had a plan
To neg and nag and pick
To tie me up in knots
To twist me until I’m sick
I told you that’s enough
I said please leave alone
My core and central traits
Or risk being on your own
You couldn’t let me go
You didn’t let me be
The bad is all you saw
You saw no good in me
Or at least so it seemed
From what you did each day
So now I’ve turned you down
And tried to run away
Upset and feeling low
I miss you in spite of how we were
You’ll find your match in time
Someone you love for who they are

Minding my Business

Minding my business
Going about my day
A message hits my handset
Good moods go away
“It’s been a while
I’ve had time to think
Now I know it’s you
That took us to the brink
I’ve reworked the past
Retold all our tales
It was you that damned us
Caused those many fails
Remember than once
Recall when you said
I now think you were lying
Playing games in you head
Ive had time to recover
I forgive you for your sin
This isn’t meant to upset
I needed to offload to re-begin”
I write a response
Set it all straight
Clear my name
But wait
Winning this isn’t my aim
She’s needing a reason
She’s wanting to blame
To deny her that
Might leave her lame
So I say I’m ok
I say she is right
Suck it all up
And hope she sleeps tonight

Does she more than I do?

Is she more in than me?
We are happy but it’s hard to see
Who loves who
Does she more than I do?
She said I’m the best
A new standard for the rest
Did she mean I’m the last?
Her dating days now past
Somehow I know more
Can judge clearly versus before
Know we a close to peak
But I’m worried when we speak
She says women would take her place
That she’s worried she’ll lose the race
When I don’t think like that
Don’t worry she’ll be a love rat
Know she’s more in to me
But all I can do is let it be

Commuter Train Surprise

I fell in love for a minute
My heart leaped out of my mouth
A singular look like no other
She drew me out of myself.
The line of her brow,
The glow of her eyes
The promise of true beauty
My commuter train surprise.
Just past Bond Street
She glanced across at me
Surging pulse, sensational
More excited than I have a right to be.
She’s checking directions
I’m planning dates
No idea what to say
This isn’t a love that waits.
We enter the station
The doors slide apart
She walks onto the platform
The end before we can start.
