Not for me another love

Not for me another love

like choking fear

It will not budge

I dare not blink

for it now seems

that by choosing drink

I dwell in dreams

I grind to bits

my words and teeth

when searching through

my history:

to lift above

what lay beneath

all that broken masonry. ...

marvellous stuff Tommy. Starkness is great. I am personally just a bit too verbose.
Nice one

Really like this, though it's a bit stark, but stark is good it's good.
