the cosy little nest that she had made of their relationship is empty the straws at which she had one clutched strewn all around her now she runs around as a headless chicken would trampling on the empty eggshells she now recognises as his promises of eternal love
She wanted to travel Unravel the world Like famous explorers Who's wandering was all the will to ask If there was anything beyond the horizon That they could see.
Now shes everywhere -
Frozen stare, pigtails and grey red uniform, Tie needling south with the straightness of a compass And shes lost.
Where is she? Everywhere anyone turns Trapped in the undergrowth Where cans and cat **** go to pasture Her wrinkled smile Is caked onto the branches Paper machet - ed and as brittle As an old map. She breaks apart like bread crumbs That will never lead her home.
Have you seen her? Not tumble weeding her news Across the m2 Or pinned to a lamppost Weeping her ink into the missing like a watercolour.
Have you spied her? Not tied with weak ribbon to brown stalks who's little Notes speak of hope And other things, like Angel's and innocence, The innocence shes frozen in.
Can you find her? Not hopefully Flying her flag of the forgotten On the tv Budget crew Remaking her last seen With shaking cameras And discount queens of the smaller screen Hoping for Hollywood.
Is there a tangible Left to her name Thrown as it has been across State lines, and small places That only the locals know. She has Columbus - ed the globe And she only left home Walked down her drive And disappeared.
You said you miss me With a pouting face For a second I felt for you But you don’t know anything about me You’re clueless You don’t care how I am So how can you miss me… If you don’t care about me? Maybe it’s the idea of me that you miss Or the attention I gave Always ignoring me Till it suited you to respond I feel no bond So here I am letting go It’s over now.
The tears rush up into my eyes Every time I see you Because I know you’ll never be mine In the past I would have given it all But now when I fall I can’t… My heart’s too weak Like a bone that’s broken It never heals to be the same And I know I’m not worth your time But I’ll admire you in the golden light While your eyes shine like the brightest stars It’s a lovely sight
