I wrote this poem – friends…discombobulated – over a year ago when I first started working seriously on the manuscript for my third book – currently titled Trust is a Big Word – though this may change.
For those of you not up to date with my next story it is about a friendship which begins online, across Twitter, as a bit of harmless flirtation and which ends up crossing the line and developing into an illicit affair, the main character is married.
It is a story about why so many people stay in relationships and make do, thinking they are not worth more, getting so comfortable in their relationship they lose their own identity and how one casual comment can turn their world upside down, make life worth living again.
It is a story of love and lust, of friendship and more and of how accepting who you are can create a whole new world where you can live, and breathe and laugh…it’s going to be an incredible story.
And in the meantime this poem catches some of the essence of the book…hope you enjoy it.
I always believed you would be the one
From the wannabe excitement to the
Fat belly diets and silly football jokes
Besties through the good and the bad
But then something changed
Like ships on the wild sea, discombobulated
The clouds leaked unwanted watching
Into what became a useless, wrong lazy love
From gay spring happiness to utter desperate failure
Our love from virgin pure
To a disgusting addiction, intoxication
Now unusable, a one-sided single passion it seemed
Ears listened no more, lips moved wordless
Emerging, sounds solidifying on the ice air
Likes and fans, watching moving Twitter blue
Our bed a cake of disappointment
Bitter taste on our tongues,
Like a telling off from our mums
So we turned away from each other
To never return, to never say I could love you again.
Thank you for reading and I hope to share some of my writing with you again soon. Until next time, Happy Reading, Happy Writing, Happy You.
