How could I have left you if we don’t have
Property together. I’m a drifter.
I trespass and I leave when I’m
A bother, I don’t like being told to go
So I leave before I’m asked.
I’ve been wandering around desperately looking
For someone to notice when I leave but
You have to say something, please.
I can’t reciprocate what you don’t enunciate,
I am going to keep looking for someone
Who wants to keep me in one place.
Nobody wants an old love with weight they all
Crumble when I start to speak. My love has too much baggage now
I have no belongings but my past is heavy.
Just a word about it makes them worry.
So they talk to me with one eye outwards
Hope I find someone else to bore.
Don’t be mad if I leave without telling I am
Used to being shooed out the door.
How did I become so old.
When you are young and heartbroken you are
Endearing but when you are
Grown, it’s just frightening.
