A Way In – Written Wednesday 17th June 2009 (Aged 34)

A Way In

i saw something,
a toy,
one which i knew she would like
but i know,
sometimes decisions grip you
despite the pain
and the heartache
you have to make them

i look in the mirror
and sometimes, these days
i can see shadows
under my eyes,
and on my shoulder
i would love it,
if love knew a way in
a chance,
just to begin
