iv / Thoughts…Exploding In My Head

Through narrow streets
Releasing fuming bile
Words spoken in hurtful tongue
Swords in a duel
Like thrusting
Taking bits of life with each
Eye to eye, burning red
Lips that sour words, loudly said
Hearing the pain that breaks the heart
Two to tango in this ring of fire
Tearing the seams, pulling apart
Anger fuels the pace
Distance carries away
Left without a trace
Time, tick tocks, tick tocks
Cools this cock
Was it worth the fight?
Without a bell to claim an end
No winner, never is
Between two vowed to each other
The street sounds mellow
Passing cars to cooing birds
Streetmeat vendors grilling
Missing the company
The one left crying

Drop a coin, make a call
Straight to voicemail
Hi, it’s me…
Sorry I left so abruptly
You deserve so much more
Than my selfish need to be alone
Baby, I hate when we fight
Just isn’t right
Am walking the streets with a stupid frown
Wish you were here with me
It would turn this frown around
Baby, you there, please pickup the phone

A click, a clack
You said hello…your voice brought me back
It watered my heart
Bloomed like a flower
Coloured the sky a beautiful blue
It was spring in that booth
The air fill my lungs with a sigh
It made me high
Baby, please forgive me
I didn’t mean what I said
Got caught up, you know what I mean
I’m coming home to work this out
If it takes all night
I just need you more than you know
I hope you do, though
See you soon
I love you…
