Now It Is Over – Written Monday 16th August 1999 (Aged 24)

Now It Is Over

now it is over
i feel the strain –
ebbing away
i breathe a sigh of relief
but do not believe,
there is no grief
there is a lot of that
but perhaps this was the only way
if that is a fact,
this is some price to pay

now that it is over
i feel scared –
after all,
i have lost the most special friend
but that is the nature of life
i cannot say i am overjoyed
but it does feel like the end of a fight
and now i need –
to rest my emotions
i feel the strain –
but then it was a tired old game
