Let’s Skate Together – Written Tuesday 31st August 2010 (Aged 35)

Let’s Skate Together

i crept out of your life,
i think it was last week
maybe tuesday,
well it is the truth we seek
holed up with the king
when they are too weak
i think i swapped –
your chest of drawers
when i found your ottoman
and opened up your doors
i crept out of your life
and i put my boots back on
i knew i had my roots
so i was already gone
maybe we could catch up
in much better weather
we could put on our skates
let’s skate together
