We Are Made – Written Thursday 15th December 2005 (Aged 30)

We Are Made

i think it is called love –
when you want to spend time
with the one you love
i know life can be brutal
and i know life can be tough
when you are emotionally redundant
the sea can seem so rough
what to do when the glass is half empty
and yet you are still drunk
will life ever be enough?
but i think it is called love –
wanting to be with the one
who you dearly love
damaged by ignorance
and fixed by special touch
life is what you make of it
and remember we are not made
it is us who make life
