My Monday Metrical Musings #1

background brick wall bricks brickwork


There’s the wall
Run to it and 
Hurl yourself against it
Again and again and again
Don’t waste it

Til you’re completely bruised and battered
Til you fall to the ground all spent and splattered

Here’s another
Throw yourself at it too
Like a long-lost friend
Back from world’s end 
Wrap your arms around it
Again and again and again
Don’t relent

It’s like that 

When your child spurns your love
Doesn’t give what you give back
Ranks you fifth in a line-up 
Of the usual suspects

Leaving you feeling like 
All the years
All the tears
Were for nought
My heart now a Gordian knot

Makes you wanna curl
