Should we escape?

We certainly are not the best

When talking of our hurts

We always do just what we do

And everything gets worse


We row and row and never stop

Until we are blue in the face

We never stop to think about

Giving each other some space


When we really need to discuss

We do all we can to evade

When things have gone on surely like this
Is it not time to escape?

Why do we continue?

Why do we continue?

In our history

There’s no happy ending

No wonderful to be

The talking has finished

Between me and you

Silence envelops us

It is what we do

It is always the other’s fault

Blame always has its place

Pointless arguments

In one another’s face

Depression setting in

I am sure for you too

Cause it eats at my soul

Devouring me all through

Hopelessness to leave it all

To find my own place

Being together a day

We need our own space

It’s impossible to quit

To say those last words

To read the final page

To fly off like a bird

When kids are involved

Tearing us apart

Shattering us to pieces

Breaking our hearts

That final decision

To close that door

For it will never re-open

Your decision, evermore

I never thought it would be so hard

To let you go

Out of my life

Thoughts smeared my brain

As I tried to prepare

For the eruption of emotions


I knew there’d be repercussions

As I closed the door

You’d smash through it

Splintering my face

Begging my acceptance

Your claws pulling me down


Liberated from your grasp

Power ignites my soul

The first time I am in control

Of my future, my solace

My sanity is my own

Free from you, be gone!
