The Status Quo

It’s that always-inevitable,

Nettle sting time again,

After the anticipation,

The first-time-again surprise

And pleasure;

That heartbreak song again:

A bus stop song,

A railway platform song,

A tomorrow morning-alone song –

The bye-bye song,

Gently savage chords,

Mellow move-away melody

That mean –

Almost certainly –

We will never meet again.

      Sometimes, even for wordsmiths, words are not enough.
      For me in those times music fills the gap …
      that or silence.
      Appreciate the …….
      Thank you.
