Rom Con – Written Monday 20th April 2009 (aged 34)

Rom Con

this is not a life scripted by richard curtis
i will not be running or driving past,
conveniently placed landmarks
i will not be standing in the rain
declaring rain soaked undying love
or jilting someone at the altar
and it is okay, because –
no one falters
this is not that life
this is away from a big screen
where there are colours
and i do not exist to articulate dreams
there is no happily ever after
if this story, our story –
if it was a film
the happy ending it would always lack
the audience, so tired, shuffle –
and they ask for their money back
this is not a life scripted by richard curtis
