Put Your Arms Around Me – Written Tuesday 20th April 2010 (Aged 35)

Put Your Arms Around Me

put your arms around me
and tell me,
it is going to be okay
i am not convinced
it feels like with age,
there also comes a weight
i think in all seriousness
memories become a gate
put your arms around me
tell me politics are not real
that these back garden liars
have not got their hands in the till
i need you,
i need my feelings
put your arms around me
it is true,
this whole yours and mine
but we can find something
and like this new found sunshine
when we hold each other
then we start to combine
