I Could Melt – Written Thursday 18th October 2001 (Aged 26)

I Could Melt

i could melt,
into these walls
it seems no surprise
that individuality starts to call

i could melt,
out here on my own
i will try and catch the memories
the ones which have flown

i could melt,
just trying to catch time
how on earth did i get here
it is fine but it is so strange
and sometimes it is clear

i could melt,
like ice cream turned towards the sun
like the visions i once had
son to his mum
and then onto his dad

i could melt
