right and wrong

alone by phil burns

alone by phil burns

You tell me I will soon forget
That you already can’t remember
But you are sunshine in July
And I’m the east wind in November

I tell you that you’re always right
You tell me that I’m wrong
I say I want to stay with you
You say I don’t belong

You bring the music to my life
You are my favourite song
You tell me I am out of tune
When I try to sing along

You never want for company
Without you I’m all alone
You stand above adoring hordes
I am soon lost in the throng

You ask me why I hang around
Why don’t I just move on
Perhaps there’s nothing better than
The agony prolonged

I know I never will forget
And you will not remember
You’re the Cote d’Azur in mid-July
I am Scotland in November

    exquisitely heartbreaking.
    I keep putting scotch tape on my heart, but each week it breaks again with your saturday offering!


  2. Flowers bloom in your heart, and all should be able to smell the beautiful fragrance.

    This must be the muse:
    “Perhaps there’s nothing better than
    The agony prolonged “

    Yeah that’s an awesome and sad poem AnElephant has created. I love it.

    Beautiful. An elephant is in a different mood today.


Go on, say something, even if it's rude!
