Story Books – Written Friday 30th October 2015 (Aged 40)

Story Books

false gods create false profits
save your faith
pack it away
find a suitcase –
in the lost property office
grab a bus –
when your love feels too much
and your care –
has washing to hang out
and when your hope –
has something going spare
i remember that place
the one to which i pledged
that i would always stay
but it was not the tide –
that took me away
it was not the cancer of boredom
or the cancer that results in death
it was not because –
i had run out of specific breaths
life is all these story books
and not so much a quest
