You were once the greatest thing that ever happened to me
and now you are just thrown in the back of my mind.
Now you're just scattered memories.
I was always afraid of changing.
I was never made to do this because
my life revolved around you.
But life does keep going.

As you decide to jump off this runaway train,
leaving me in the dust left to rust.
Leaving these grounds to become a beautiful flaming light in the darkness.
Every night I would look into the sky and talk to you,
telling you that life does keep going on
but it's making me sick, love.

But in the morning I will awake and rise from the ground
not knowing how to walk properly again.
But I'll find enough strength to walk to your resting place
and find peace in it and slow down in this race.

But I gave you all I had
and now I have nothing left to hold
I took all my love and spread it across your wild footprints
and grave, like ashes, to let it sink down into you once again.

We all get older.
We all lose things.
Life doesn't stop
and I have never
felt more alone,
but time continues
and the days go on.
But not a day goes by that I forget you
because I never dreamed of meeting someone like you,
but now you're just a memory
in the back of my mind.

Oh, the tragedy I have seen,
leaving my eyes burnt out.
"Please don't be dead."
I repeat countless times to your stone,
to the sky, to the heavenly stars that shine so bright
leaving the darkness in the pity shadows.
"Do this for me please."
"Just one more miracle."

Being just friends is not something I prefer
To the lack of intimacy which now is deterred
But to me this relation has been so instrumental
I needed this... a force rough, yet gentle.
Viola you appeared, to ally all my sighs and moans
At these feelings you jeered, even with my barren tones.
You would put a smile on my face just by poking.
I don't bathe much but I let those moments soak in.
I don't remember every conversation but I know how I felt.
I remember when you'd hold my hand I'd melt
I remember the tingle I got with your hand in my hair
I remember staring and thinking how such a fair
Smart, comforting woman could find me appealing.
I remember... that you were the first person to return my feelings...
You and me is still the favorite of my ships
The way you make me feel... you just can't buy this
No amount is enough to pay so
Offer me a thousand planchas DE queso
Or An Emma Watson, one or two
But no matter who we chose to pursue
At the very least i can say that we knew
That both of our skins were both very blue

Yin
I need a strong yin
to rein me in
to be by my side
kicking my shin
when I need to restrain
my under their skin
to pull me out of my dive
and control my fast spin

it's then that my watson,
my bucky, my tonto
comes into their own
and suppresses my ego
So don't go when I strut
when I trigger disgust
just stand by my yang
and balance me up
Thank you radio 4 for a short about side kicks

What do you reckon? I know what you’ve been thinking…
We’re on a ship that looks unsteady, like it’s sinking…
We’ve made shaky plans to be gung-** and to go it all alone…
But we’re beginning to wonder… are we heading for some kind of danger zone?…
At first we were just floating along - enjoying the passing view
And 2 years off it looked a lot easier …leaving the EU!
But there’s a waterfall downstream…and it looks like a helluva drop.
And once we get too near the edge, well, we won’t be able to stop.

The simplicity of Cameron’s ‘in - out’ referendum question dawned…
Cos, divorce is complicated.  Those who voted leave were scorned,
branded racist, or at least suffering some kind of mental disorder.
“Didn’t you stop to think about the about the Northern Irish border?” (best read in a 'silly', sneery voice).
But - back then there were 2 million Syrians, Afghans, Iraqis all walking toward Calais.
Some thought serious overcrowding problems could come our way.
Single Market,? Sovereignty? Customs Union? What the hell’s all that?
It means you’ll need a visa to go to Benidorm you ****!

Meanwhile Merkel diffused things by taking the refugees in.
But only served to rattle the bars of the **** leaning right wing.
The Spanish got all Oity Toity about us having Gibraltar.
And some of those previously unforeseen problems made Brexiteers falter.
This is David effing Cameron!… Farage embarrassed him into calling for a vote.
And, when the Remainers lost, Dave saw his chance to produce his sick note.
“I’ve done my bit”, he said “so… I’m standing down…  so who do you think should take my dodgy crown.
The Buffoon, the Backstabber, the Right Honourable Lady Home Sec?”
She, the author of  Windrush, Repatriation, food-banks, lower benefits? She got it! ****** heck!…

Hoodwinked by a government you maybe invested your life in, in all the earlier polls
Now we’ve all been tricked by a bunch of, navel gazing, self serving arseholes!
So it’s the blind leading the blind… Well, no.! Misinformed…and maybe just a bit short sighted.
And, you know, Theresa… she’ll most likely still get knighted.
But I doubt this episode will score with generations yet to come,
Deserted by this Parliamentary shambles - sitting on their hands, their collective ***.
The proletariat are cut adrift, and heading for the falls…
So we’re looking for a new saviour - someone with charisma…big *****!

Let’s look forward to this time next year… When some trusty politician re-writes our little story.
When we may be out - but far from down… Well I somehow can’t see it being a Tory…
And if isn’t Jezzer - who HAS got his eye on the prize…
McDonnel, Starmer, Benn, Tom (call me Slim) Watson? Who should THEY try for size?
And, just supposing, by chance, the Conservatives actually crack it
who, amongst the front runners there, could get the job and hack it?
Lord Snooty, Gove, Hammond…Hunt the err… Foreign Secretary,  Javid, Liam Fox (surely not!). Bojo?
With this current stay of Brexicution, for just a couple of weeks… the petition, the march, the chaos, could it still be NO-GO?…
Whatdya reckon?
The complexion of this subject - Brexit (if I hear the word one more time on TV I think I'll unplug the thing and throw it out of the window) changes by the minute so it's hard to pin it down - Here is where we're at up to this point.
➡️➡️➡️➡️ “Follow the path of the unsafe, independent
thinker. Expose your ideas to the dangers of controversy.
Speak your mind and fear less the label of 'crackpot' than
the stigma of conformity. And on issues that seem
important to you, Stand up and be counted at any
cost.” ~ Thomas J. Watson (1874-1956)

I want to feel the warm sun,
Feel the warmth of a burning fire.

I want to feel the warmth of your hugs,
And feel the warmth of your love.

But you don't love me.  
I am rejected.

Aphrodite has her beauty,
And Hades has his coldness,
Persephone has her king,
And Ares has his queen.

But where, oh where do I belong,
The twisted circles,
The rounded squares.

Every feeling new,
Every thought an equation.  

You are mine,
But I am not yours.

All I want,
Is to make you laugh.

To smile,
To laugh,
To fantasize me,
with you.  

You are a fantasy,
That can never be my reality.

My moon,
To your sun.

My tears,
To your laugh.

Cause you, my dear,
Are diamond that shines so bright.  

But I,
Am like stone,
Of the blackest night.

I am the Watson to your Sherlock,
The Robin your Batman.

You are mine,
But I am not yours.

This is my reality.

— The End —
