Poem from Prague



Your text message:


Where are you when I need your love?

All you offer is the darkness of your rage

If loving me is such a difficult religion

Maybe my death will wipe the anger from the page


Bohemia is here, it’s where it started

And is coiled within these walls

I can hear the venom calling

And drips poison in me, then crawls


Where are you my love?

My savage jealous night

The toxin has me now

And paralysed, I feel just right


My reply:


And outside that crumbling wall

I will for you to collapse and fall

Into the suffocating poisoned dark

Where my love will constrict and scar


Bohemia did not start there

And does not end just anywhere

It belongs under the spell of me

And you are trapped and I am free


Return your love to its rightful place

Do not let time erode and waste

Escape the monotony of the same

Embrace the anger and enjoy the shame
