Another one from back when. I think it’s my favorite. And then off to bed with me.
Said you wouldn’t do it but
In ways I can’t explain and you
Won’t understand -
Touched me with no passion
And no care
And no love,
just an empty, unsure hand.
You left me
Whirling screaming shaking feeling
Knocking on the doorbell of
Your savage home,
Leave me on the doorstep in the
Playing with the children inside
Where you keep it warm.
…an old dog laying on the doorstep
Starves to death,
…nobody has time to feed her and there’s
No scraps left.
And outside tempest rages and
The fire and rain pour down and the
Wind whips everything around me
In a maelstrom of light and heat and sound and
Everything feels like it’s converging
Crashing down around my soul,
And I am at the center
