A Lick of Paint – Wednesday 8th February 2011

A Lick of Paint

i found a relationship
needing a lick of paint
the love lines –
had begun to look faint
but i am no –
painter and decorator
and i am no –
full time educator
i found a relationship
with a roof –
in need of repair
but i am no roofer
and i had no tiles
she said we have come a long way
but was it really miles?
i found a relationship
that no longer felt secure
i offered to change the lock
find a different way
but i do not think
she wanted one that belonged to me
