Relationships – Written Thursday 3rd December 1999 (Aged 24)


relationships let you live
but they also let you die
it seems it can hurt
to reach out and find the sky
relationships, always complex
i am complex…
they are complex…
people we have been with in the past
haunt the present and cause a mess
the baggage is sometimes too heavy
but it is difficult to leave it behind
i hang onto those memories
those memories in my mind
relationships like the seas
that are unchartered and stormy
however, sometimes there is calm beauty
i can look back on years
clothes in laughter and tears
relationships in gold
but sometimes the gold starts to peel
relationships, they can be old and cold
just as they become real
