Last Attempt

I think that perhaps kissing will make

everything better, and I’ll be able

to tell you how I feel totally hidden,

how I feel like I’ve been mistakenly

exposed to the world too early.


You’re rushing, trying to catch the sun

before I’ve had chance to show you

how tender I can be, how loving.


It snowed last night, but not enough

to make a difference to my mood,

and I know, for a fact that I’m losing you.
