like those moments in harmony when i say "you drive" and you say "i drive" and the universe concurs that the one of us will tip our head back and the other one of us will clench the wheel-- wherein both parties reap the spoils of our little zero-sum game because i get to leave the ground "don't stop" kicking up gravel with the heels of the rubber and you get to feel the earth "let me go" leaving acrid smoke and burning metal and then, there, that somewhere in the middle i win and you win and the windows close us back up against the cold whiplash of sand and air and the sums cancel out like they always, always have.
If she could only see me now struggling to survive each every day her tears they would fall on me probably drown me For the sadness, she would see and my sorrow she would feel If she could only see me now she would comfort me and try help through my times of trouble I find myself now In Sometimes feels as If there's no way out of the suffering and the griefing plus financial hardship of letters making demands And the pressures of a government who as no compassion for the most vulnerable In a society but what chance do any of us have In worlds full of corrupt people that are only Interested Inlining their own pockets the rest of us forget about It Oh If Helen could only see me now and my constant every day struggle to live without her And a government that won't even let me grief or retire to finish my remaining days In peace
A poem for all those who struggle with grief and the every day strugglss of life and a government that has no compassion for the vulnerable In our society shame on the MP who allows this
You made me better You made me feel like your hero Someone who wanted nothing but the best for you Someone who wanted to see you smile You told me I helped you with your trauma You told me you missed me When you kissed me you said that was the only kiss that meant something
You said you weren't ready to be tied down You said you didn't want a label
Now I feel like a zero Walking endless miles I ask myself is this some kind of trial? The hole in my heart hurts more than a gunshot I can't even run the miles like I do every day I try to stroll to walk off the pain But I'm to maimed and lamed to walk off the pain
I can't frame you as the bad guy I can't even be mad All I am is sad You said you were lonely before me But did I mean anything? All I am is a Zero I am nobody's Hero
