Emotional Fatality – Written Tuesday 1st February 2011 (Aged 35)

Emotional Fatality

it changed today
i felt the wind
and it changed the direction –
of this vessel
it changed this selection
i thought,
that all these games –
are no more than that
no more than silly, silly games
do you believe –
in those three words –
that you said
and i am always guilty
of falling into bed
but today,
somehow it changed
the fakery of it all –
knocked as loud as a solid reality
and i know, i am the leading candidate –
for every emotional fatality
