Forfeit

So even though you know

That you deserve love

Like you know your own name

Like you know the colour of the sky

You’re willing to forego, forfeit

Because the pieces of your heart

Back together anymore, don’t quite fit

And you don’t quite feel like dancing anymore

To the acid jazz waltz tango tiptoe

Through Love’s emotional array

Of human sunshine thunder lightning rain

Seasonal ghosts and echoes

On constant replay

Haunting taunting memories of pain

Downright willful damage of those

Entrusted with the care and condition

Of ones tender heart throes

Can never be forgotten

Never be the same

Predisposed

To never staying present in the now and again

For any decent length of time

Fractured heart tangled mind

Loves not a game!

Loves not a game!
