A Nightmare Disguised As a Daydream


Those blood red lips

Thick black hair

Mustn’t succumb to temptation

But I’m already there

 

You’re playing with my heart

Loose and fast

Embroiled in a love story

That can not last

 

I can’t do anything

But surrender to your eyes

Totally entranced

By the devil in disguise

 

My exposed emotions

You chop and dice

It’s a living hell

Dressed up as paradise

 

Release me from your spell

I’m so desperate to live

I’ve bestowed on you my soul

There’s nothing left to give

 

There were beautiful moments

Played out in the sunshine

It felt like forever

But you’ll never be mine

 

The dreams I harboured

Descended to dust

But life moves on

As it must

 

A fragment of time

That should have been ours

You promised me rainbows

But delivered showers

 I Miss Your Roast Dinners


In the game of love

Neither of us came out as winners

I don’t long for those days

But I miss your roast dinners

 

We often argued

Sometimes lied

But your roast potatoes

Were extra crispy & soft inside

 

All our dreams

Ended in the trash

But I often think

About your creamy mash

 

Our strained relationship

Was little more than a sham

But I never stopped loving

Your minted roast lamb

 

Our time together

Wasn’t a stroll in the park

But we had your gravy

So rich and dark

 

Divorce is messy

There are no winners

If only I’d got custody

Of your roast dinners

  A Nightmare Disguised As a Daydream Those blood red lips Thick black hair Mustn’t succumb to temptation But I’m already there ...
