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.

Fleeting Smile

Gentle smile
Walking through London’s teaming streets
Flashed lashes
Is that what she does to everyone she meets
Intimate moment
Brilliant light blinding against dark commuting plight
Fleeting beauty
The chance of joy on this lonely lonesome night


Where has this feeling come from

Why did that thought appear

We could end this and be happy

Free from each other and fear

Free to seek what we are wanting

Free to find a better match

We might be better starting again

Building anew to start from scratch


A visit to one who’s love comes with condition and at a cost
A reminder of a mother supportive but now lost
A day to get through waters troubled by staying at the surface
Doing what can be done to not let in negative emotions for no purpose

The Selfish One

It’s confusing that you’re never
Going to make the time
To listen to my problems
I’ll take it as a sign
That the care you have is selfish
Aimed at you and you alone
You don’t want strong relations
You can’t build a happy home
You’ve told me I’m not caring
You’ve said I have to raise my game
But if one of us is failing
Then you’re the one to blame
You could have asked me how I’m doing
Could have made more space for me
Instead you started hurling insults
You passed out pain so willingly
Now I’ve seen what you are doing
I can’t rest until we are done
From now our bond is broken
I’m off, away from this selfish one

I’ve Seen this Movie

It’s the first time I’ve seen it
Maybe I’ve felt it forever
She’s just like my ex
We cannot be together
How have I missed the signals
Why couldn’t I see the signs
She’s not what I am after
To her nature I’ve been blind
Don’t think she has an idea
That this pattern’s a pattern
But she heard all I had to say
And knows this will matter
I’ve seen this repeated movie
The end of burning flames
We cannot go on any further
I can’t cope with rerun games

Hand in Hand in Hand

Two simple souls together
Hand in hand in hand
Tentative embraces
Nothing really planned.
Taking time for talking
Describing who they are
Stepping slowly closer
Not knowing quite how far,
Their comfort with each other
Their joy at sharing time
Might lead to growing feelings
To the future they are blind.
With honesty around them
With truth a constant guide
They can be together simply
With nothing they need to hide.
Don’t know if this is always
Don’t have a crystal ball
So make sure each step is steady
Building up, not making small.
Then regrets will never happen
There can’t be a side that’s down
This will create love and beauty
On a base of solid ground
