He knew not much happened

By staying quiet

Although he urged himself

To try it once

To lay down

There by her side

With desire to confide

To show that he was sincere

Not with doubt or fear

For here he was clear

He hoped silence

Might shear

Her last…

His shift

Into the kindly curse of verse

Was the first certain line

The most demonstrative sign

That he was becoming redefined

The writing was on the wall

He had to make the call

He would rise

He would fall

But always

Yes, always and forever

He would always, yes

He wanted to grow

To grow into another life

Without doubt he knew

That his current store of angst

Was way too high

He paced

Without face

He retraced all his options

He lived out in the sticks

Yet had found his hits

In the clicks of art

Of culture

His desire was to rearrange his life

To extract the strife

Which had brought down

The darkness

To set aside the rife depressions

Which had incisively

Parked themselves

Into his restless mind

He knew he was being unkind

But he had to find out more

He had to explore

He…

With time he lost his sense

He lost his sense of shame

He was so deeply in the game

His defences no longer came

With any thoughts of risk

Lust

Wrapped with limitless love

Was his only fix

Cruel with tricks

He was driven

He sought out not to be…

There to dream

For to dream seemed the only way

Yet, on those business trips away

He relayed his delayed gratification

Night and day

His mind began to play

He sent her cards

Which he hoped would sway

Her pure, oft repeated quip:

Are you sure

Are you sure

Are…

He wrote her senseless words

Quite absurd to talk of work

To edge his position

When to touch

Was his fairly robust

Realised reverb

He stirred himself so deep

He fought

But almost lost his keep

At night-times

He paced off into sleep

He was in, he was way over

He was in, he was way over

He was no more

The lonesome rover

No more to grovel or scream

He was

In among the richest of seams

He knew that this would mean

That everything

Oh yes, oh yes

Absolutely everything

Everything…

Oh no, oh yes; oh but no

Oh but yes

Then, as if from nowhere

She showed herself

His wealth was reborn

She played down her trip to town

Said that it was a mistake

Somehow one date too many

But anyway

She was here, she was now

She wanted…

He talked of fear, of risk

He described her heavenly kiss

A kiss placed so so softly

By the sweetest of lips

He protected her, he indulged her

He lost her to the night

He committed

To those wild excesses

Of lovers who sulk

He was high, he was low
