Another Night – Sunday 18th March 2001

Another Night

another night
if you ripping me apart
you need a heart that works
you have got my heart
i would like to move on,
but it really hurts
another night
of seeing me making a fool of myself
of seeing me crying
you must have loved me
but dreamt of somebody else
the way things are now
i cannot believe it was me you wanted
another night
of your flirting
misunderstanding and walking
i am okay with ‘friendship’
but i never find it in our talking

    • This is going to be a disappointing answer because I can’t remember who specifically this was about – I think at this stage in my life, I was 26 and the casualness of relationships in my life was becoming frustrating. I had on / off relationships and they were all quite destructive. It was a tipping point in my life – i was to meet someone who would later marry (we aren’t together now). This is a piece about personal frustration with someone but it’s also a wider life frustration. My writing at this point had get a bit caustic and a bit short in its tone. I’d also stripped back a lot of the word play. When you’re 26 you can’t keep on living as if you are say 20, the same things either don’t matter or don’t give you what they used to

      • I am 22, so it’s a bit scary to think that this is possibly what is awaiting me when I turn 26. I am immensely sorry for what you have gone through, and thank you so much for being strong about it. Life takes strange corners and we don’t have any other choice but to adapt. Thank you for sharing your story. I hope that you are in a better place now.


      • Depends how you live your life and how you manage your wellbeing. I struggled a lot in my early 20’s with lots of things. So, for me, there was always an uphill struggle to get to where I wanted to. I’m 44 now and life is much better. I will say, the nature of my writing is to moments and feelings and magnify them. So my writing can be magnified in that sense. Thank you for your kind words
