You are a speck of dust that goes unseen

a feckless spot

                      that makes us

                                             come undone

I collect you from places you have been

and call your face the surface of the sun

like Ovid's amores surrounds my heart

a tiny seed that grows inside my lung,

but at first I did not pay you heed

I shivered when we met but

you never saw me bleed

so I wandered


                                without regret

and I apologise for what I've said

I did not want to stay in bed

and now I forsake outside

I'll stay inside instead

so you'll remain

unseen and



you're nothing like the sun

you're not like us

cos' we're all in it together
