A Dash of Repair

Lift your dreams to the air

Lift your arms in despair

Feel the crash

Scratch the rash

Of loves unusual dare

—-

Hear the break of the bone

While you throw the first stone

Losing sight of those things

Dropping grip on those strings

You thought you had known

—-

Oh but let love be shown

To know we aren’t alone

—-

Stitch on a fresh patch

Whip up a fresh batch

Clean the mess side by side

While you sew up your pride

And open the floodgate latch

—-

Always last

Way too fast

—-

Tap your glass to tomorrow

Dwell upon all the sorrow

Wash off yesterdays tears

As you drink today’s beers

And pretend this love isn’t borrowed

—-

Lather, rinse, repeat

Run away on your feet

While you talk in glorious circles

About all of the little miracles

That you let crash to the floor in defeat

—-

Raise your hands to the air

Colour your dreams with despair

As you realize this is beyond repair
