I can put some sugar on it,
you can eat your spoils of war
You can give yourself a medal
for using her like a whore

Like prey, just sitting there
and she fell foul of you
You used her and abused her
Now you are her ‘past’ too!

love, war, past, medal

Most of my writing is auto-biographical.
I wrote to rid myself of the ‘rubbish’ in my life, I found it extremely cathartic. I called these early pieces “C’est le Vie!”
For many years I hid them away until a dear friend on RB convinced me to publish them here – for that I will always be so grateful.
