Love And Null Things

Love And Null Things

It's the absolute tetherness, 

All these jiggling chains

That has tamed me. 

Perhaps the only untamed 

Thing is my breath,

Whooshing around at times,

Snailing around at times.


Last week I weighed my head,

And it was twice the size.

I hear these four walls yelling

At me to cut loose and run 

Out into the wilderness. 

But where do I set free? 

My head will always be 

Wrapped around the memories. 

Memories that only exceeds,

Whenever I hear you say - 

"Do you remember that day?"


My heart does make me 

Thrust forward at times. 

But heart is just a network

Of labyrinths ain't it? 

You get out of a door 

And you just have to pass 

Another arcade full of doors.

Until you meet the estuary,

Down the fjords. 


There shall come a day,

A silver lining day.

Where I would wake up

And take my rucksack

To the dumping ground.

And weigh my head back again,

Grinning at it's result. 

Get back home just to watch -

The chains melting and 

The four walls unmoulding. 


Saying goodbyes and kisses to all 

The love and null things.
