Where we are now is where we’re friends.
“Turn round and close your eyes,
For fancy that wisdom transcends,
That makes of us mayflies.”
Where we are now is where we’re fools
Helped by a lot of wine
Drunkenly breaking all the rules
With: “So. Your place or mine?”
Where we are now is we’re in love.
The two of us melt as one,
Our voices rising by octave,
Forgetting it’s just for fun.
Where we are now’s where time won’t go.
Be still and hold me tight.
Enjoy this time we have although
It won’t keep past tonight.
The walls I built come crumbling down,
Although you don’t mean to.
They fell quickly, without a sound,
And I really don’t blame you.
Where we are now is where you leave
And I expect as much.
I don’t have time, or need to grieve,
Already forgotten your touch.
Where I am now is writing out wrongs
Choosing a ballad form.
While listening to Emo songs,
To ‘Romance’ I conform.
Where we are now: that story ends.
The rest is not yet writ.
The awkwardness and sorrow mends.
There was no true culprit.
Where we are now’s where I don’t learn.
He’s not my first mistake.
Our actions we cannot govern,
And they’ll lead us to heartache…
