man

~

He’s got a mental disorder…
Affecting his brain…

It’s why he keeps on running…
Back to her again…

At every opportunity…
And any chance he gets…

He finds his way to her…
And tries hard to forget…

The pressures and strains…
That surround his tired eyes…

His stressful environment…
Which forces him to cry…

And pine for her excitement…
The adventure she brings…

Because wandering around her…
Makes his heart sing…

Giving him chance to reflect…
To make sense of it all…

And where all his mistakes…
Vanish in her seductive call…

Those open, sore wounds…
The deep and painful scars…

Overfilled with fear and hate…
Like some flooded reservoir…

Leaving him quietly praying…
For something to hold…

To keep him afloat…
Whilst out of all control…

As when he’s feeling so lost…
In his distorted reality…

She gives him distraction…
And moments of pure clarity…

Much needed perspective…
Arrives when she is so close…

And next to her beauty…
He’s like an imperfect rose…

Out of his natural habitat…
And growing out of place…

But when he sees her light up…
A smile crosses his face…

Because this mental disorder…
May affect his brain…

But nothing can ever hurt him…
When he’s in her arms again…

“No time to think about what she’s done”…

alone

~

She lost her mind a long time ago…
She lost it in the deep White snow…
She lost her will and became a ghostly shadow…

She lost the man, she lost her love…
She lost the spark, her hand in glove…
She lost all belief in the Gods above…

She lost her way and could no longer see…
She lost her spirit and was forced to her knees…
She lost her life, to some degree…

She found by chance, the chance to grow…
She found someone, who let her know…
She found some pieces and began to sew…

She found the strength to live again…
She found warmth in the freezing rain…
She found some courage and caught the train…

She found a place where she could belong…
She found her voice and now sings his song…
She found her soul, after all hope was gone…
