Ensnared in the lyrics of romantic songs

dressed to kill with a story to tell

no one wants to hear.


Lend me your ear.

Not today - nor any other day

yet the lyrics weave their spell.


Hollow footsteps up my spine

those of only me and mine.

A lonely echo of a silent voice.

Is there a meaning?   who can tell.

I'm so gratified to get these likes folks: David, Rachel, Kevin, Damon ,Brian, Anya, Heart of Lead and Dorothy. Not feeling too confident with the writing at the moment, so it really helps!

Martin, so glad you liked that line thanks. Yes, I was in melody territory, and there was a hit for the Four Tops with that title. I hope I avoided plagiarism!

Too kind Stu.!
