Autumn Lovers

Streetlight lamplit autumn coloured leaves

Rustle and huddle together

Scarlet cheeks shying away,

from the cool morning breeze’s,

amorous advances.

The skyline, streaked with cloud wisps,

awaits the hand of the sun,

to draw the signature of the day

Such a Pretty Sight

Sandy Ln is a place you take yourself
Alone at the dawning of the day
Where no-one knows your name
And nobody remembers
If it was you that came in yesterday
Still burned around the edges
With the final glowing embers
Of a love that strayed.
And you know before the coffee’s poured
You’ve already had much more than you can afford

I live out the day with the remains of what you gave me
I try not to name it, you know my heart always strays to what my mind knows ain’t right
I try to make it plain to you and one day I may, but till then there’s the night
And in the morning a vapour trail makes such a pretty sight
