Life’s Too Real

Life’s too real on many days,
On those I wish you’d come to stay.
Come to me, come to play,
When life’s too real together we’d escape.
Life’s too real when it really hurts,
But when your here the pain desserts.
When you come joy asserts,
I’m ten feet tall, your armoured sir.
Life’s too real when it’s kicking my arse,
And only you can make that pass.
Giving me the strength, the strength to last,
Protecting me, healing me, with spells you cast.
Life’s too real on days like this,
I wish it’d leave, just go, dismissed.
To be replaced by you in a seismic shift
To make life worth living, the gift you give.

Trying Not To Hide

I’d sit and watch,

As you chat and smile.

I’d listen mostly,

Think to interrupt once in a while.

But I couldn’t I’d stay silent,

Enchanted by you.

Your personality,

Shining through.

Your beauty stalling me,

I’d try oh so hard.

But I know I’d fail,

End up watching you depart.

And there’s the regret,

I’d hold for all life.

Too shy to speak up,

Try as I might.

So I’m glad I didn’t see you,

In a cafe or bar.

For there I could only,

Admire from afar.

I’m glad that I met you,

Here in this web.

Where my confidence oozes,

With no sign of dread.

I’m glad that you saw me,

What I hold inside.

For without your love found,

I’d be alone, trying not to hide.
