Blank Stare

I tell you I feel alone you stare back at me confirming my deepest fears – you’re emotionally unavailable (again)  I’m all alone (again) Open your mouth tell me what you’re thinking give me a glimpse of your heart –  do you have space in there for me or is it locked without a key? You don’t have to be poetic I’ve never neededContinue reading “Blank Stare”

Will you love me on Mondays when we’re tired and don’t wanna work? Will tender feelings still be there when we’re at our worst?

Adrift with me on a sea of complicated emotions it’s uncharted territory We’ve heard there are dangers ahead we’ve seen the maps the written messages people have left warnings of firedrakes and destruction Yet we forge on keeping faith in each other despite the chance of wreckage and ruin As we sail into the unknown it’s likely there’ll be dragons but with the fireContinue reading “There’ll Be Dragons”

Unkind Years (with audio)

He keeps fading I’m watching it happen before my eyes I wonder if he is silently fading from me too He keeps so many of his thoughts inside I’m always the last to know what’s going on Every morning I see less joy in his eyes He slogs the day out pushing himself in aContinue reading “Unkind Years (with audio)”
