Miss Ya!

Ya dropped outta me world
like a spud out of a sack
I knew you’d be comin’ back
but I missed ya!

An’ sometimes ya drive me mad
like chasin’ a lone pea round a plate
makes me   r-e-a-l-l-y   irate
but I still miss ya!

So next time ya swing on me door
like Tarzan lookin’ for Jane
I pray ya’ll never go away again
‘cos I’d miss ya!


A Captive Compliment

On a loop in my head
your voice
all the things you’ve said
emotions that swelled
and rolled off your tongue
through liberating lips
flew vowel and consonant
sentencing me…
with a captive compliment
