BECAUSE

Is it because we saw each other on a near-empty bus
And not across a crowded room
Is it because I asked you out for dinner
But not to stay for breakfast

Is it that I agreed to that weekend in Paris
But that I wasn’t the one who suggested it
Is it that I refer to you as ‘the love of my life’
But not when anyone else can hear

Do I talk too much or not enough
Do I flirt too much or not enough
Do I say what you want to hear
Or is it obvious that I’m just saying what you want to hear

Is it that I know I’ll never be as important as him
Or that I don’t seem to mind
That is the reason you are still in my life
Or the reason you never really will be.

HAIKU

Wondered always I’ve
? forward moves only time why
Boring very how.

Beer cider spirits
Why were all these invented?
Champagne, all we need.
