The lonely fight

A long time has passed
between words that I have written

a passage from one sea
to another

a passage from word to letter
a message from bottle to shore;

the miracle of communication in every sense.

So free I feel tonight to write

so easy the words come to hand and mind

the truth is that it has been a long fight
between two lovers,
both known to bite.

My love is now away, my parents are long gone

my friends I hardly know


They all have their lives
to ride, to live and fight for

as I stand alone
once more

in the middle of the night

to fight the lonely fight.
