pretty words

save your pretty words love
give them to those that care
I’m drinking down your nightmares
and floating in mid air

I’ve seen what you would offer
and none of it is real
a trip around the heartlands
a touch of sharpened steel

I’ve smoked too many pipes full
and sold too many lies
I’m here not for the first time
just watching how time flies

and this is not my future
of that you can be sure
I’ve plumbed the depths of Hades
and won’t be back for more

so save your pretty words then
and I’ll be on my way
we have nothing in common
except the time of day

    Excellent last stanza..and yet I thought this wasn’t going to be the last break-up..for even a stopped clock is right twice a day so having that in common won’t change. πŸ˜€

    • With this one, it was plain which were the first and last verses, but I spent some time trying to decide in which order to place the internal verses πŸ˜€
