Back in My Life – Written Monday 20th September 2010 (Aged 35)

Back in My Life

is a part of me –
still attracted to you
is it?
i mean after all these years
we are still on a rollercoaster
costing our fears
what is it –
that brings you –
back into my life
i am never sure about you
do you ever turn on all the lights
you stand me on a cliff
and then you make me fly your kite
and i wonder,
is part of me –
still devoted to you
and even though you hold so much back
do you just –
expect me to accept
because we were swept from a similar mess
i do not see you reveal
perhaps you say it under your breath
i never really know
but i find us –
under a similar patchwork cover
somehow just –
still dependent on each other
