Getting up to go

When I get up to go

it will be something,she said.

A long pause after, she added,

It will not allow change

nor a turning about.

There will certainly be no room

for under the table discussions

nor over the top theatrics.

No slyness, no manipulations

Nothing shall stall what is to come

The repercussions?,she laughed

the who’s whos and the not so whos?

and murmuring silences and silent noises?

Well,they don’t fit into my scheme of things.

The tapestry is a mirage.

The glitter glowing harsh,

The ash hides the amber,

The sea is deeper than the seen.


And she got up to go…


Only just so much

I shall teach you this

only just so much

that you know the way

my way, our way

I shall hold you thus

only just so much

that you know my side

the only side you will ever know

I shall open you up

only just so much

that you know what’s right

my right

Go on be independent

only just so much

just enough for you know

you are dependent on me

Go on be assertive

only just so much

to know to assert

my right over you

You my love be proud

only just so much

to know the pride

of being mine

and she broke away…
