No Strings Attached

To things without beginnings but when they end, leave you in the middle of bereft and relieved…

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
So I watched two play the game
No strings attached, I heard
I saw differently

Actions speak louder, that’s a no
Listen to the words
Actions are just for the medal

A string of events
…Unattached

At every stop, another You
Calls, tutorials, movie invites,
Things extra
Thinking there’s more
Listen to the words
Actions are just for the medal…

So maybe it’s all a lie
All that is
The smiles on your face
Keeping at bay
All colours of her footprints
As they trample,
Pouring sand, on your ego

But of course it’s no biggie
Buddies yea?
Taking your pain, until you’re whole again
And I’m broken

Maybe it’s not the pain
Maybe it’s not her
Nor you.
It’s me
Wanting another to feel the pain of being
Left behind

So I sit back and watch the curtains close
Happy you’re there
Once again, the star in the loft
Happy that again,
I fixed another broken caterpillar
And set it free; a butterfly
