I'm part of the exclusion zone.
Of you and them and me.
I'm lost in past, forgotten fast.
Old news, and ceased to be.
All well and good in time to brood.
For memories remained.
I'm outside staring, sightless, glaring.
Forget me not, refrained.
I hope for love's sweet comfort.
In shattered future's loss.
When I'm remembered fondly.
And swept away the moss.
If recall be painless.
Reminded with a smile.
Sit aside my resting place.
And think of us awhile.
You've got to have some rhythm if you're going to boogie down.
At the latest tango hotspot at the Roxy in the town.
The principles of foxtrot and the sways of swing will show.
That dancing with your heart will always make your passion flow.
When the bossa nova starts and the lady sings the blues.
The time is now to shake your hips and don your dancing shoes.
You trip the light fantastic, your shoulders shake in time.
Your fingers snap and feet will tap along to mambo rhyme.
The rumba stirs the frenzy of your heart in Latin beats.
You feel the crazy samba in the footsteps on the streets.
Your ready for your spotlight doing cha cha cha and jive.
You can never stop the lindy hop to keep your soul alive.
I am the pip in your apple.
I am the cloud in your sky.
I am the air that you breathe in and out.
I am the tear in your eye.
I am the reason you're weeping.
I am the season you love.
I am your favourite colour.
I am the sun up above.
I am the coin in your treasure.
I am the prize in your win.
I am the drought in your river of doubt.
I am your heartbeat within.
Your teeth are the colour of off milk.
Your odour is of rancid butter.
I see you and I feel sorry for everyone that you spitter on.
I'm sorry for your loss.
You took the **** from the current.
You wiped the floor with your wit.
You helped yourself to the hate on the shelf.
And now you're left stirring the ****.
You put the bad in the *****.
You took the **** out of me.
Your bitterness trait, your mouth spouting hate.
I'm done with you, now let me be.
You **** the life from the living.
You should just walk to the door.
Exit stage right, with your hypocrite *****.
Your company needed no more.
So glad I got that off my chest now.
New chapter, we're clear, no more stress now.
So beat it - retreat, turn sour into sweet.
Our future no longer depressed now.
I don't know who or what this is about, other than tedium.
I never remembered needing you.
Or craving your hand on my back
I never surrendered to love
I intended to never be broken, in fact.
I never had dreamt that I'd long for your touch,
And oftentimes thought I was stronger.
But days without seeing and crazily being
The one who was needed no longer.
I'll hold up my hand when you choose and demand that I be by your side on this journey.
But hopes have been halted, my heart strings assaulted,
By truths and decisions that hurt me.
I'll heal and take glory
That I'm in your story
And hopefully thought of with care.
We said we could try.
I'm sad it's goodbye.
It's now that my heart can repair.
The apple of one's eye.
The creme de la creme.
The buffet at the wedding.
Where it's us and them.
The glow of the neon.
Instructing us to buy.
The latest moisturiser
For wrinkles round the eye.
The canvassers cold selling.
The need of starving cats.
The aforementioned wedding.
The shopping for the hats.
So come give us your money.
Your precious hard earned cash.
We'll offer you perfection.
In your supermarket dash.
The things you'll buy tomorrow.
Are better than today.
The new improved conditioner.
The advertisements say.
Consumers to be nourished.
Big spenders treated well.
You'll need a coat for winter.
And scarves and coats as well.
Your funeral arrangements.
A monthly simple plan.
Your loved ones fear when you're not here.
You've left them all you can.
So now our claws are in you.
Please kindly move along.
The facts and claims are always true.
We're seldom told we're wrong.
We're business types converting.
Your little wants to needs.
We'll squeeze you dry until you die.
From birth we plant the seeds.
