Bearded Lady (A beginning in Stanyan Street, and a tearful end on Rockbourne Terrace)



Upon our parting

I should've went home

and freshened my sheets


a faint smell lingered,

I went to sleep

crying more than ever

and haunted

you were still in my bed


And perhaps I was in love

but it was love that I couldn't accept


No,

not even yours my sweet

your love

was no match for my heart

forever stained.


From the deepest oceans

I'm sorry I couldn't trust you

even when you spoke the truth


but you must know

I was comfortable in solitude

everyday in every year


except that night,

after many tears

and a final kiss


that night

I didn't want to be

alone.


Not even in sleep

do I stop to wonder

if I made the right decision

Not even with closed eyes

do my scars

fail to burn


I'd like to do everything for you

but a coward will do none


so please

tell me you'll be okay


I couldn't live

with anything less.
