Am I untying the ties

Or just relying on lies?

These are thoughts that I think when I wander in whys

And in what did I do’s.

When I’m slipping on shoes

To step in outside.

Bearing this load that I carry implies

That something is wrong.

No words in the song.

I wonder why I long to splash in the rain

To soak myself in the hurt of the pain

That aches like a bitch and is blacker than pitch.

I sit in my tent a rather peculiar gent

The fool at the tiller the innocent killer.

Am I untying the lies

Or just relying on ties?

    By ‘eck, chuck, them’s long words at t’ top!
    On a more serious note, this is a poem I truly enjoyed reading and want to read it again. Have you got anywhere near to publishing something, yet? Surely you’ve got enough material.
