Moment From A Manuscript – #2

I sense my words no longer move you, that I no longer touch your heart. You seem so distant from me and what I have tried to say. You say you could not meet me, as if you fear I’d harm you. I can’t imagine life without you and it haunts me that I may never see you. I have always believed in you and trusted you to be guided by your heart, I dare to hope you’ll find you need me too?

#

What on earth has made you feel so insecure with me. Your words mean so much and have always meant a lot to me. I know you trust me and I do you but I just have something in me which makes me hold back when it comes to meeting up. Please snap out of this, you’ve sensed me wrong, I am and have always been here for you, and yes, I need you too.

No Bodies

She of an age, not young
nor old, she knows he
knows, her lines and eyes
he pins within a decade

He shows his own, tells
who asks, yet as if, he
not believed, she says
(more wish) he can’t be

No time to tell, no hand
to hold, line after line
she feels, he too, soul bites
no sound, no bodies.

Woken up now…

I’ve become a little lost on here
not being the man I am
to those who know and need me.

I’ve been distant, distracted
passive, as if waiting for something
to happen in my life, this isn’t me.

I’ve woken up now, can’t keep
waiting for a future I have no
say in, impossible to make real.

You live for today not tomorrow
I make you feel good, it’s only here
you want me, this reality for you.

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

‘You like space to be yourself as I do, you have commitments you take seriously, I too very much so, you feel most alive exposed to nature, the feel of warm rain on your skin, and now and then a need to feel a beating heart, close, not tied to, free to be you, like me.’
