Bowl of Cherries – Written Tuesday 28th November 2006 (Aged 31)

Bowl of Cherries

trying to work out marriage
i never expected life –
to be a bowl of cherries
and to be truthful,
i am not that keen on cherries anyway
the ups and downs
making sure the theme park
remains open and interesting
thinking about your sex life
is it wrong…
is it right…
is it too much
or is it, tonight i have a headache
well, people long for touch
trying to work out marriage
hold me and tell me how it is
tell me it is going to work out fine
hold me, just for a moment in time
tried of waves and circles
just find me a line
