See, I never understood why you turned, why you yearned to change direction. In my humble point of view, I knew that it just couldn’t work out the way you planned.

You’ve perplexed me, set my mind alight with words and pictures I never wanted, that I never asked for. Why would you try to drown any sense of love, of joy; all you do is frown, look down your nose as you compose the words you’re about to say.

Your demeanour is stranger than I’ve ever known. So, I’ll say it again, stop defending, stop pretending that you say you’re ok; no way- all your actions and words peturb me, disturb me, unnerve me until my bones quake with despair; listen, I care, I’m there and I’ll always watch your back for attacks but you’ve gotta give me some slack.

Perplexed time and time again; I say one more time, then I’m gone, but still you hold on, “you’re the one “; my heart can’t take much more of this pain, there’s no gain from what we have.

Can you tell me you’re willing to listen, participate in a way that will bring you back from the edge?

Can you promise you’ll stop biting back; we need to form an attack from the stuff that wants to pull us apart.

Wipe my tears away, just say that it’ll all be fine in time before we cross the finish line, before it all falls apart in my heart, before I fall to pieces.



There's always stuff in life we're not sure of. I'm thankful , and eternally grateful, to have a love for God. Yes, I've put my life, my family, my everyday existence, into God's more than capable hands. Some would say I'm mad, some would pooh pooh the idea... As General Melchett once remarked in Blackadder Goes Forth.."You know, if there's one thing I've learnt from being in the Army, it's never ignore a pooh-pooh. I knew a Major, who got pooh-poohed, made the mistake of ignoring the pooh-pooh. He pooh-poohed it! Fatal error! 'Cos it turned out all along that the soldier who pooh-poohed him had been pooh-poohing a lot of other officers who pooh-poohed their pooh-poohs. In the end, we had to disband the regiment. Morale totally destroyed... by pooh-pooh!" So, have a read, have a think. I don't have all the answers, but I know a man who has ;-)
