dusk arising

walk away



 

i
walked away
again
today

today
i
walked away

self preservation
i tell myself
again
i
walked away

alone
I
took it home
again

where
i don't
walk away

      I know you walked away from my singing, but there's no need to rub it in, by reminding me in this (fine) poem! lol.

        I would like you to try gargling the communion wine for that voice,... let's start you on three bottles a day and see how you get on. we can up the dosage if needs be.

        A telling write on self-preservation D.A. - - such a scent of sadness to the whole read.

        • dusk arising

          just a simple little ditty which wrote itself... i have something more substantial planned for you tomorrow

            i heard theres a pile of old books fell off the edge of the world, but some folk still read them LOL.

            high praise from you thank you so much. i guess sometimes the simple writes hit the mark

            • dusk arising

              I'm honoured ME. as i've said here to others, it wrote itself. Such a simple piece

              They say
              Home is where the heart is," but it's not always true. Home can be a lonely place without any love.. Yet, self-preservation is a natural instinct. And the battle goes on

                maybe refusing to allow oneself to walk a path which when previously walked led to heartache too many times

                  Dusky,

                  I know you, you never walk away! Well not until you’ve exhausted every avenue, realised you are fighting an idiot & then walk or maybe run as quick as you can before they convert you! Lol!

                    I'll have to turn into a rugby ball before they can convert me m8

                    Dusky,

                    I know you, you never walk away! Well not until you’ve exhausted every avenue, realised you are fighting an idiot & then walk or maybe run as quick as you can before they convert you! Lol!

                    Unsub.

                    • dusk arising
