Pay With Space

Poem By Jane Sparkes

An empty space between us
Because of a mistake of mine
Is a gap that I now yearn to fill
With our bodies intertwined

Is it now to late though
Years past and chances lost
I didn't make the move I should
Now I'm counting dear, the cost

Honey tell me something
You used to feel to much
For me, now I know I need
Those loving arms to touch

Did the years make you sour
Or did you just exhaust
The love I thought you felt for me
Or was I mistaken most?

Darling its our time now
To live our feelings through
There's nothing that I've ever felt
That is what's between us two

The longer I am
The more I know
The less I know
Was what I thought

If You Look After Me

If you look after me
I’ll be a good companion
I will stand in a stable and look forward to the food you bring
I will ignore my urge to wander, to roam

End It Now

If I end it now, before its dead
He'll remember it fondly
To herself, she said.

Stranger Passing Through

See you stranger with your eyes that measure, take notes and absorb my reality.
A strange place discovered, call it middle ground or no-mans land.
Funny that where no man treads a woman is safe but unaffected, no woman wants this anonymity, this vacuum.
So onwards into new regions we wander.

Suddenly Single

Rolling down my cheeks the tears
Shoulders shaking, the pain sears
Burning heart with hurt and fear
Anguish reigns now you're not near.

The Sting In Your Tail

Fly with me said the honey bee
Hour by hour set your heart free
Feel our love, trust our harmony,
The futures bright for you and me
