THE SECOND TIME

(old poetry 1990ish - reworked)

THAT MOMENT

THE SECOND TIME

IT WAS ON MY MIND

WAS IT TRUE

THIS WOMAN

GOT USED TO THIS

LIVING

DO YOU REMEMBER

HOW THE

ANGELS SO SANG

AND YOUR

SORROWS

LEFT YOU THERE

RIGHT BEFORE

THE LIGHTS

CAME UP

DO YOU REMEMBER

YOU TOOK MY HAND

DO YOU REMEMBER

MY FRIEND

OH DID IT FEEL

RIGHT

IN THAT MOMENT

DID YOU FEEL

LIKE IT WAS

THE SECOND TIME

WITH YOU

THE VIVID MEMORY

WELL IT HAD

TO DO

OH THE DREAMS

THAT COME TRUE

AND THOSE

THAT DONT

TO SOMEONE THAT

YOU LOVED

AND

BOTH WOULD

ALWAYS LOVE

NEVER LOOKED BACK

THE SECOND TIME

AROUND

FOR US

MAY NEVER COME

BACK AROUND

EVEN

THOUGH I STILL

LOVE

OH TO THE

SECOND TIME

AROUND

WHICH WE KNEW

WOULD NOT LAST

WE HOLD IT

ANYHOW

AS LONG AS WE CAN

SO MOVE

PASS THE FIRST TIME

SO MOVE

PASS THE SECOND TIME

AND

ONTO A SPACE

WHERE REALITY

IS FOREVER

IN THE SPACES

WE KNOW

THE REST

IS LET GO OF

PAST IS PAST

HURT IS DONE

WHAT IS DONE IS DONE

AND OVER WITH

I KNOW WHO

IS WHO

AND WHAT IS NOT

NO GAMES

COME FROM MY

HEART

NEVER HAVE

NEVER WILL

BUT IF SOMEONE

TRIES TO PLAY

IT

KNOW IT WILL

BE PLAYED BACK

TOO

I KNOW WHAT

THE DIFFERENCE

IS

SECOND TIME

AROUND

HAS COME AND GONE

SO

WHERE DOES

THAT LEAVE

THE TRUTH

AFTER SO MUCH

LIES

CARRY ME AWAY

AND LET

THAT BE THAT

SO THERE ARE NO OTHERS...

BECAUSE I AM

DONE
