I’ve been sitting here for an hour trying to write something in the way of a poem that doesn’t make me sound like a lovesick high school girl.
It’s been threatening rain all day and finally it starts to fall… I can hear distant thunder and I’m screaming with the storm.
Today has been the worst day i’ve had in a very long time, and it’s all because I love you.
The thunder rolls closer now. My bedroom lights are flickering, the rain pounding, heavier, in my ears.
John Martyn is going down easy and I want you. Take everything else from me because I want you.
Take from me all my comforts, my necessities. Take my material possessions, I care not.
Let me have you…
Outside it sounds as if the world is falling apart, but inside, it’s me that’s falling apart… Yet you’re here… Lighting up my Southern Sky.
