My Engine Needs Love – Written Tuesday 26th July 2022 (Aged 47)

My Engine Needs Love

my engine needs love
my ego,
needs the softest glove
my bones,
need warmth
my hope needs pushing
just as love needs you

my engine needs love
before it breaks
or runs dry
before its moving parts
start to cry
my ego,
needs sunlight in its eyes
a field with open space
and waterfalls that do not run dry

my engine needs love
i am perched here,
face pressed up against
the current changeable weather
my imagination
is going hell for leather
and sometimes the pack feels tough
that is why,
my engine needs love
