All awry

His beauty moved me like owl at prayer
I’d better share my love of birds on here

He touched me like a marble falls down drains
Thank God we then had lots of heavy rain

He told me he was angered by my face
I drowned on his tweed jacket spiced with mace

I read so fast the teachers were amazed
My secret was adrenalin and haste

I never loved my neighbour as myself
For I was deep in love with someone else

We think we long for love but I say
IIntimacy rots if we can’t play
