Success

Stasis in Darkness

So they preach you what success is;

Sunlight through the vacant mist,

They tell you you need to fall in love

Whilst the sun shines up above,

Pass away each ugly year

Washing pans, eating food,

Act all kind, nice, subdued,

Your husband needs his clothes cleaned,

The children need their parties themed,

And the office goes out for a Christmas do,

Their tales of love shall tell,
In language whose excess imparts
The power they feel so well:
There may, perhaps, in such a scene,
Some recollection be
Of days that have as happy been,
And you’ll remember me!

*We make several friends in our life, some stay along and some carry on. This is for those with whom I have lost touch.*
