The Girlfriend – Written Tuesday 6th July 1999 (Aged 24)

The Girlfriend

the girlfriend,
and all her amazing worlds!
gifts for the gifted
and swift with her sweet talk
something that i need to share

the girlfriend,
away in another place
photographs on my mind –
of a deep and smiling face
something i must find

the girlfriend,
to my mind she is at ease
with my jewels, i would entrust
never let us turn to rust
let’s hang on for the future

the girlfriend,
in all her amazing worlds!
beyond physical galaxies
to a place for her and me,
this is it,
the moment where i want to be
