Tonight you ask
With that half baked smile
Will you be there?
Maybe, I say
What do you mean?
I mean, maybe I’ll be there
And maybe not???

You’re grinning now
Like a Cheshire Cat
You’ll be there, you say, and laugh out loud
Your hand on my shoulder
Willing me, to come
I can feel you through my shirt
Cocky confidence

I’m not so convinced
I should be there
I don’t show up
Unwilling to make the effort
To move from my couch

How come you are not here?
I thought …….your voice trails off
Good movie on Telly – didn’t wanna miss it
Like I said….. Maybe

Some days you just have to
Let the game go

Take a cold shower – you’re not that hot
