poetry

How many times.

The fire crackles

the waves roar

pale moon light pours

into your roof

The world around us

is lit in fluorescent

The ice blue

coldest colour

in the summer heat.

I have to leave now

Oh how many times

I have fallen in love with you

How many times I have died

on the inside

But I have to leave this town

We can’t walk down

this path again

So I hurry

I scurry in haste

through the buttons

Bury my lips on the side of your neck

Because it’s getting late

And I have to leave

But darling how many times

I have fallen in love with you

How many times I have died

on the inside

But I have to leave this town

We can’t walk down

this path again

You push me away

pull me closer

We can fly

But you want to swim

You show me oceans

And I show the space

We meet at horizons

Mere tangents

Intersect and then we deflect again.

So I part in silence

And let my love go deeper down

Cause’ I have to leave this town

now love

Oh how many times

I have fallen for you

How many times I have died

on the inside

But I have to leave this town

And we can’t walk down

this path again

But tonight we burn

and we drown

As you sleep

I leave this town

We may not be old

But we ain’t wild no more

just between times

Spaces and lives

And we will meet again

Oh how many more times

Will I fall in love again.
