I'd Do That for Love

entry picture

I feel weird today. And it’s pissing me off.
And sure - I could blame beef stroganoff
But this felt like I hadn't eaten at all.
Wouldn’t stop - despite paracetamol.

And I - didn’t feel - that I could adopt the
Bravery needed for seeing a doctor
And Google basically forecast my death
On the offchance that there was any hope left

And I must admit, it did take a while
Considering I was knee-deep in denial
To be an adult, and dare to speak of
The fact that – oh for god’s sake, It was love.

Leave it to love, to ruin the night!
Right before X Factor too, Oh delight.
So excuse me, whilst I rip up my diary
Since here's an event that has no expiry.

Because love goes on forever – like a big bitch
And I’m supposed to just let it enrich
My heart – or something to that effect.
And that could take a while, I suspect.

Great. Now my heart feels all sordid.
It’s doing that thing that Celine Dion’s did.
And then I start dreaming. Dreaming of every
Thing I now crave, drifting in reverie...

The instance of a burning kiss
Two lovers take on 'The Abyss'
My flickering eyes - closing on bliss -

Doesn’t love know I have box-sets to watch?
Rather than dream of a non-descript crotch?
I have things to do, I have people to meet -

And these supernoodles won’t cook themselves!
There’s unread books all over my shelves
I need time for Rihanna’s back catalogue!
I have a life! I have a BLOG.

But hey. I’m not saying I just won’t try.
I’ll do stuff for you – I’ll make you stir-fry?
So until I admit love's inevitable
At least you have some sautéed vegetables.

And I would plunge the depths of my soul
To stretch over and pass the remote control
Just so you could watch The Mummy 2
I’d risk a pulled muscle to do that for you.

I don’t have much money, but boy if I did
Elton John would sue me for this bit.
And I would lie penniless, in Cliché Ditch.
But I’d do that for love. The selfish bitch.

Love is All You Need – Said The Beatles. True -
But they also said shit about submarines too.
Yet despite the doubts, I’ll just follow them through
I’d do that for love. I’d do that for you.

It's a shame you blogged 2 so close together Sopie - this one would have attracted more comments I think.Lots to chuckle at in here. Loved the bit about Elton John and also the bit about the submarine - it touched my funny bone!

Not sure what I'm up to next week - will have to check it out. x

Absolutely brilliant. Sophie Hall on true form. The humour is superb - so many funny, dry lines. I'll have to return later to comment - you're making me late!
