Wham



Speeding towards fifty

Trying really hard

to avoid patterns

from my past

Half-read Mars & Venus

learning how to listen

without calls to action

talking through feelings

listening to her needs

Opted for commitment

Then – WHAM – out of the blue

live across the wires

across the ocean

She’s got another playmate

so I’m on my own again

She’s connected with her birthplace

enchanted by its spell

found a worthy playmate

so I’m on my own again
