I Miss It (Response)

I miss it too. Of course I do

Hours together in fading light

Then off adventuring

Into a warm distant night

 

We get shots at the ready

All in a line

Camera’s held steady

Taking snapshots in time

 

I miss your little made up tunes

And your cute dopey smile

I especially miss the way

That you could bring mine out

for a while.

 

It’s weird to think

how far apart we are

and the distance we travel from

even weirder that time flies by

when you’re here

yet ceases when you’re gone.

Dear Lady

My lady,
Thou art disgraced.
Your future is in a gutter,
That was constructed in haste.

Your guardians promised protection,
But were swiftly led astray.
Dear lady, protect your neck,
For it lies exposed today.

I have loved you lady,
And the promise on which you stand,
Your torch which once shone brightly,
No longer reaches land.

Oh lady, my lady,
May my words find you well,
a ship for you to travel on,
as your nation goes to hell.

know you did not fail,
it is the people who want you gone.
you cannot expect to offer help,
to those who wish for none.

Sweet lady I still love you,
I promise it’s not an act,
The people will crawl on hands and knees,

Begging.

to take you back.
With open arms you shall welcome them,
It’s in your nature to forgive.
I hope today doesn’t kill you lady,
We desperately need you to live.

 

*Anyone want to guess who the lady is?

Boyfriend

You didn’t explode into my world

like colourful sparks of light.

More like, cannonballed at full speed.

And knocked out all my fight.

 

And though you couldn’t brighten up my dark corners

Because they were already bright.

you made yourself at home in my heart

where I welcome you each night,

 

there is so much I love about you

so much more that I can say. Like,

Your goofy smile and, pretty eyes

That I could look at everyday.

 

How your passion’s not just for existing

Though it’s rarely ever seen.

It lies in art and, stars, and stories

And everything in between.

I realise now,

 

I don’t want someone with no faith

Someone who thinks they’re flawed

I need someone like you around.

Who refuses to be awed.
