Someone I Can Fall For – Written September 2010 (Aged 35)

Someone I Can Fall For

she said,
i just want a, ‘normal’
someone i can fall for
someone i can understand
some girl who makes me laugh
and holds my hand
kisses me passionately
and does not let go
some girl i can talk to
someone i really know
and someone who knows me
inside out and then inside in
she said,
some girl willing to begin
and do cartwheels on parade
because all those others
ruined everything i gave
she said,
i just want a girl
and i knew what she meant
love should not be a story
of which we once dreamt
so she keeps on looking
and drinking,
in so many different places
i hope this time,
she has found the girl
who goes on to own her time
