London    1999 -    
There is a hidden beauty within us all
As well as an external truth.
The trick for a happy life
Is an equal balance of the two
There is a hidden beauty within us all
As well as an external truth.
The trick for a happy life
Is an equal balance of the two

i couldn't paraphrase us.
and if a poem is only worth
the words written within;
i don't have an introduction.

i don't know where to begin.

wishing upon stars
never was my style.
i just looked skyward
and refused.
i was in nothing but denial.

Tell me right now.
Truthfully, my ravaged nerves;
Talk much. Rather not,
Tales merry- running noiselessly;
Through merciless river nights.
Tell me right now.
Too many readied "no"'s
Trusting Malice. Reserved? Never.

"Red wire, Red wire;
Oh won't you let me go to bed?
The days' been so long,
the nights' too
and I'd like to rest my head!"

But no- The Red wire replied.
The clocks yet to tock,
the stars are yet to align
and the moons not yet sighed.

"Oh Please," I begged
"Red wire, let me sleep.
Take my arms, my legs
or my heavy heart instead!"

I see, the Red wire said,
Snaking around my throat.
My lungs filled with dread.
"I will make you dream.
Dream.
Dream.
until we are dead."                          
                                       So i dreamed  with your silky red thread
                                       where i wished for your hands: to be led.

Couldn't telegram the truth;
so i just relayed an excuse.

Re-reading past conversations
just to double check,
you dished out
the same words you'd get.

and not feel at fault.

Why do i fear
Running ahead?
because i consider whatever's
left unsaid.
