i think to be unloved is to be damned.
for a while i thought myself damned.
can you really be damned at 16?
i gave him two cigarettes this time,
and offered another two.
he smoked them till the tips of his fingers burned,
i wanted to place them on my lips.
suck them, kiss them, cool them.
i sat across from him, nursing one drink, careful with my teeth and my brow.

Without a chance, at that first glance,
A heart stopping moment frozen in time.
Nothing made sense, except, with electrifying suspense,
That the universe had spoken as your eyes met mine.

We met through a personal ad
Two desperadoes with sad eyes
Putting our pride in our pockets
Pained from others goodbyes

Half a loaf is better than none
I wasn't keen on her manners

She pushes it away,
an embarrassing parent
hugging her outside the school gates.
She stitches her words together
to avoid the inevitable stumble
over ragged letters
and shards of silence
and talk so small it could be shattered underfoot

Yesterday. Tracy told me about her birthday, of how she went on a date to a nice city pub with a cool guy. He was tattooed and wore a stylish baseball top. They got on, made small talk about their lives, ambitions and dreams. They planned to meet again next week.
