Rusty Railing – Written Wednesday 17th July 2002 (Aged 27)

Rusty Railing

i guess,
i have found another failing
the one true impaling
on the eternal rusty railing
i guess,
i have got a terminal problem
a strike or one hit
giving to others what i really am
mastering relationships
i start out in the lead
but it changes so soon
and sometimes in the night
i am trying to hold onto the wooden spoon
i guess,
this is where i fall down
running into hurdles
tripping over my shoelaces
i am obviously lacking in ultimate care
relationships do not do me any favours
though i am desperate to share
