Close My Eyes – Written Saturday 6th August 2014 (Aged 39)

Close My Eyes

close my eyes
all this is too much
lucky me,
tied to such love
but the damage
hangs in my galleries
pictures scrawled
of bitter sweet families
i laugh
sometimes i joke
but do not tell me
only understand the choke
take your scarf
and then fly away
maybe these years
are spent staring through windows
maybe i need a lift
you are my fare
close my eyes
