The Cupboard

 The Cupboard.

 

A room to escape

Solace

Peace

Laughter.

 

Friends finding comfort with idle chat

Music

Sport

Misery.

 

Her scent stirs his desire she is

Oblivious

Unknowing

Smells good.

 

She can’t read the man of many words

Confusion

Stomach churning

wanting.

 

Months pass and a tension builds

Fire

Passion

Yearning.

 

A cupboard stands dark in the corner of the room

Pencils

Paper

Tools of imagination.

 

As she leaves she passes the cupboard

His eyes burn her, her desire floods her

She turns

He’s there

Trapped.

 

Can they hear each other’s hearts beat?

BOOMING!

POUNDING!

BOOMING!

 

She’s pinned against the cupboard

Tools of imagination scatter

His body presses against hers

Heat warms her scent

Hot breath on skin

Thrill of being caught.

 

Lips gently touch

Hands cradle face

Bodies touch from breast to toe

Dark cupboard fills will loves glow.

 

The same time each day

Lovers light the darkness of the cupboard

Passion stolen

Sated.

 

Cupboard’s doors open like arms

Pulling in the lovers

Enjoying the forbidden love

Heat

Passion.

 

He’s gone.

 

 

Cupboards doors stay closed

No more love

No more glow

No more

No more.

 

 

The room of escape is now more

It is a room of heart ache

Broken dreams

No more laughter

No more idle chat

No more stolen kisses

No more

No more

 

 

The cupboard houses still,

Tools of imagination

But stands forever dark

Holding onto the secret of forbidden lovers

When they once lit it’s darkness.

  1. Tears, Sarah Jane? Don't be sad. Where'e there's life, there's hope. No Anger, No Conditionals, Never cowardly or cruel. And when you need a person to hold out their hand to pull you out you, well...

  3. Guess I'll always have to be
    Living in a fantasy
    That's the way it's got to be
    From now on


    Guess I'll always have to be
    Living in a fantasy
    Though it won't be really me
    From now on


    You think I'm crazy I can see
    It's you for you, and me for me
    Living in a fantasy
    From now on

    Flip side of Baker Street 1978 - nice country feel to it. Hope one day you see and like. Don't stop dreaming.

    If your head is in a mess why don't you give yourself a rest
    Before you finally reach the end?
    When your bubble is bust and you don't know who to trust,
    I hope you recognise your friends,
    I just hope you recognise your friends

    Oh you want to be a writer
    Fantastic idea
    You say you've never seen America
    I really think you'll like it there
    Maybe you should travel with me
    Is this the best idea
    Because you've never seen a Redwood
    And you've never touched a deer

  6. TUUUUUNE!

    Because we need each other
    We believe in one another
    And I know we're going to uncover
    What's sleeping in our soul....

    Keep dreaming, never give up.
