first love

Sigh
Foolish, is I
Found not truth
In your doe-eyes
Sigh
Foolish, is I
Scalded as I tasted hot lies
In your loose tongue
Sigh
Foolish, is I
Saw but a child
In your man-girth

Sigh
Wise is I
Give you hot kisses
In honour of my love
Sigh
Wise is I
Laced my lips
With goodbye rums
Sigh
Wise is I
Intoxicate you to sleep
As I stealthily slip away

Sigh,
Foolish and wise, I
See scared little you
Simply as you really are
Afraid to grow up or own up

Sigh,
Foolish and wise, I
Listen to your jumbled lies
Still loving you as I let you go

Sigh,
Forever foolish is I
Missing the cold warmth of you
even when you’re not yet gone….
