Confused – Written Thursday 8th August 2006 (Aged 31)


brain gripped by thought
and eyes cast downward
do i like this ‘me’
as i feel changes inside

not there to dry my eyes
seeing you
as i had not seen you before
my conscience calling

after all these years
it is me who says we can talk
i delayed the communication
in hot pursuit of dreamless insanity

you pull at my heartstrings
that i had tried to cut
in youthful defiance
there you are, falling apart
here i am, confused
