14/9/16 A recollection of many different aspects of my life
This is a song of love and adoration,
of deep sighs and longing eyes.
This is a tale of woe and misery
and joy and creation and hunger.
This is a hand-me-down history
of humanity and its trials and tribulations.
This is the scream in the night
and the whisper on the edge of hearing.
This is a gritted-teeth recount
of agony told, retold and told again...
This is a murder report, a plea of guilt,
a confession and exoneration.
This is a breathy, sweaty declaration
of passion, involvement, fulfilment and sex.
This is a story of bruises and scrapes
and calculated-to-within-an-inch-of-death bleeding.
This is life.
