tough bikkies

every second drags its weary feet
time slows to a crawl
knees buckle under the pressure
of a bowing spine

momentarily close my dusty eyes
to erradicate the memories
cleanse the pain
with peppered tears

walk away from the dream
turn my head, in hopeless hope
that you’re right there
but no, your gone

thistle ridden heart
ripples of memories flood
and i remember every scene
in my long lost dream

scream at the stormy sky
and the sky screams back
and as i turn away
it apologises in the breeze

follow my shadow
back home
leave my heart where it lays
in the red sand

i rue all i didnt do
and recall in warmth what was said
goodbye and thank you
for the dream that nearly happened

return from where i came
gaunt and wide eyed
ready to start again, rekindle and repair
life isnt fair…
