Him & Her – Again

Him

Relieved to say with surety this saga over now

you’ve shown what you really are, as for who

I’ve not a clue, I’m quite glad of that, makes

ending this farce easier, it isn’t hard at all

 

The signs have always been there, your

inconsistencies, your lack of sensitivity

your inability to keep tabs of us, just how

long we’ve been in touch, seems ironic now

 

I believed in you for so long, guess I wanted to

couldn’t see, at best, you’re just on here for fun

It’s sad really that you need to fake so much

I’d say goodbye, but why, we’ve never said hello

 

Her

 What on earth has got into you? I know exactly

how long we have been in touch with each other

thank you, but all I hear from you is complaining

do you not think your negativity really upsets me

 

Do you honestly believe that these constant threats

of you going are doing you any favours at all

let’s be clear, I’m not playing your game any more

you’ve shown what you are, and that’s not nice at all

Dawn:

Dawn light filters through

Shutters angle a rainbow

I wake warm space beside

Your scent upon my body

 

My eyes look into yours

You cat-stretch on all fours

The curving of your spine

Send tingles into mine

 

Your knees astride my hips

You dip to touch my lips

Tongue tips taste prelude

My rise and fall in you

 

Laid in hand held silence

A new day … you and I

The night before unknown

Two strangers we no more
