I’d rather be with you


I’d rather be with you

Wondering through vacant rooms

Looking at old photographs

Of how it used to be


When we loved with such abandon

All you did was look at me

Just a gentle flick, and like hot wax

I melted, flowing everywhere


I’d rather be with you

In the dark silence of the night

Where we fumbled and stumbled

Over each other’s words


Eventually tossing them out

With the past hurt and pain

Their resurrection would bring

No more tears, all we did was cuddle.


I’d rather be with you

Knowing where we both had been

Then turning down roads untrammelled

Where surprise is an aphrodisiac


Harmonising signs of the zodiac

Connecting our separate worlds

Like the first man on the moon

Anticipating fresh discovery anew


I’d rather be with you.
