– the next time –

‘Behold my future be-

loved… a

rare gem that all men will

covet. I’ll

keep close to my breast, a

firm fit for my chest’ –

those will be my words the

next time. I’ll

close down my worn-out well of

wishes, for

my mouth will be worn out from your

kisses. I’ll

keep safe in my dreams, with

gold-plated lock and key –

these will be my actions the

next time.


I may never learn…

I may never get a straight-up

clue. I may always burn…

if there’s a chance to burn for

you, the wish worth waiting on,

when the next time’s come and gone.

Still – I may never learn…
