I’ve Started Yawning When You Strip

The Enthusiasm to Leave
… is gaining Momentum
and risING like a God
Impressing Effortlessly.
Whilst, that Sense
of ‘Duty’ to Stay-Put
is Yellowing…
like a once Brilliant
Black-Eye… No [Real]
Dilemma, all Timing.
‘Hurt’ is just a Corridor,
the Quicker you Traverse
along its [Aching] Path
… the SOONER
Spring comes Skipping
BACK into…
a Life become Dimmed
by Routine and Boredom.
