Day #287 of my 365 days project – a self-portrait a day for a year.

She doesn’t have to go to work
but she doesn’t want to stay in bed
‘cos it’s changed from something comfortable
to something else instead.

This bed has seen it all
from the first time to the last.
The silences of now
and the good times of the past
and it only cost ten pounds
from a shop just down the road -
mind you that was seven years ago
and things were very different then.

It didn’t get much rest at first,
the headboard banging in the night.
The neighbours didn’t dare complain.
Oh everything was going right.
Now there’s no need to complain
‘cos it never makes a sound.
Something beautiful left town
and she doesn’t even know its name.

Now every night she plays a sad game.
Called pretending nothing’s going wrong.
Oh but she knows
if this show was televised
no one would watch it
not tonight but 7 years ago.

La la la la la la la (etc.)

Now there’s no need to complain
’cos it never makes a sound,
something beautiful left town
and she never even knew its name.

She doesn’t have to go to work
but she doesn’t want to stay in bed
‘cos it’s changed from something comfortable
to something else instead.
