Another Lunchtime Meet – Written Wednesday 19th April 2006 (Aged 31)

Another Lunchtime Meet

another lunchtime meet
you body frail
once beautiful eyes flicker
like the family neon light
that cackles and hisses
your hands,
nervously placed on the table
your smile still lights up a room
it is a shame you are not able
Another lunchtime meet
your mind hurts
from the sheer weight of honesty
you have heaped upon yourself
know how ill you are
and see how you ache
your body ravaged by a disease
the stem of self hate
brought to bony knees
and i just want you to be well again
the beautiful blonde you were
with a heart of pure gold
and such caring, caring eyes
another lunchtime meet
damn the disease which had you
