A Feeling and a Pretty Face – Written Monday 17th August 2009 (Aged 34)

Every Time I Stroke Your Face

what can i do when i am stuck
stuck between a rock and hard place
i am falling –
every time i stroke your face
rationality pipped at the post
every time i kiss your lips
and it is the most,
most difficult thing
but then, feeling this alive
riding on this dream
feeling like i do inside
what can i do when i am stuck
stuck between a feeling and a pretty face
or as it could be seen,
a rock and a hard place
