6/10/16 Poetry - Stephen Williams

That's nothing.
Get this:
I'm not pulling your leg
I'm not having you on
It really kicked off
The minute you'd gone
It's a pity you went
And missed the event
We did what we could
To try to prevent it
But you should have seen it
I think that she meant it
I'd tell you, but really
You couldn't invent it
You know what I'm like
I'd misrepresent it
But take it from me,
It was massive, I swear
Shame you missed it
I mean it
You had to be there.

You had to be there 

A pity you missed it

I fell down and hit my wrist

 After, she helped me up, and then we kissed

 You should have seen it

You would have smiled

As I fumbled down

And smacked a child

He started to scream

So I cheered him up

By giving him ice cream

You would have laughed

Until you fell

It’s a pity you missed it

What a shame

Why did you do this to me?

It is hard to lift my spirits,

Now that you turned your back, and left

like I was something that never mattered to you

on any level.

The happy days are vacuumed sucked,

For all eternity.

But you couldn’t have come

Could you?

Since you left me all alone

And for that I can’t forgive you

I now have a hole inside of me

That not even she can replace

As hard as it is to say, you’re gone

I keep my feelings locked in a case

Why would you do such a thing?

Leave me all alone

I would never do something like that to you

Now I feel isolated right down to the bone.

I lost everything when you left

Everything I cared for

You missed the moment a brother should see

My heart is just so tore

I don’t like to talk now

As maybe if I get to close they go away just like you did

She isn’t like that though,

You would have loved her, she loves to kid

It’s a pity you missed such a fortunate event

But for you, I would do it all again

It seems like you’re completely gone

But I know you’re not, Ben.

What did she say?

You said in reply

Are you sure that she meant it

Or did she just lie?

Shut up and I’ll tell you

Just give me a minute

I need to go the loo

And then I will tell it

The second you were gone

Her old man walked in

And just like that

She was obsessed

With the house next door

And a wooden picket fence

But still he saw us

And there was a fuss

For when he came over

There was no four leafed clover

His eyes did not focus

He was clearly drunk

And we did not realise

That he was some junk

He pulled on her arm

But she drew right back

He said that he owned her

She could never look back

Then her husband came in

And stood in front

Whatever you say

She’s not a prostitute

I made her

That makes her mine

But I’ll deal with you

Some other time

But then she said

Very quiet and calm

If you come near me

You’ll come to harm

Then she just

Punched his face

Then walked away

With amazing grace

I know that she meant it

You said with a cry

If he comes back

He will surely die

You had to be there

it was so sweet

I wish you saw it 

her eyes sparkled in the night

just like a torch

shining so bright

The wind picked up

as it got colder

the wind blew me over

and I hit my head on a rock

and my memories got lost

the only thing I remember

from that night

was I found my four leaf clover.
