” THE MAN IN BLACK “~by Martin Gedge



POEM ” THE MAN IN BLACK ” by martin gedge

Image may contain: one or more people

I’ve lost in love and lived in pain
I’ve paid the cost that shall remain
to rule myself outside the game
and have it pass me by
for all I seek has played my mind
to cut so deep that every time
a foolish soul who cannot find
the willingness to try
for hard of hearts you made me so
this thick of skin that I now know
to ever let my feelings show
would surely be a chore
for here inside a vacant lot
you took the everything I got
and left the rest to spoil and rot
this shipwreck on the shore
and in this light that I have found
two steps to walk on solid ground
no ties or lies to wrap around
the lessens that I learn
I have the fuel to feed the fire
and if the need a strong desire
to dip the wick and clip the wire
and watch the buildings burn
not once but down and driven out
I think of what it’s all about
to clear my way from all this clout
a heart that’s made of stone
I face the crowd and dare not hide
of all the fear I feel inside
to never bend or break my stride
this man that walks alone…
