Another Word For Coward

Cat and mouse throughout my dreams
At play, we
I don’t win

Pedigreed, you chose, not me — then you began again

The poor girl of your youth
I am
Too much proof of your roots

Together nevermore, old friend — how urban lights pollute

Before You Kiss

Pretend you’ve a past together
For we’re all made of the exact same starlight stuff

We share an ilk
We each have hopes

Pretend that time stood still on your best schoolday
That you mean to steal a kiss before the bus departs

That Summer is on the horizon
All is right and you can do no wrong
