by omegapaf

a lovely girl busy as a bee
wish she had more time for me
i owe her what in japan is called giri
a debt of honour that can never be repaid
my worthless life she saved
five hours on a sunny afternoon
smoking dope
talking hope
not having to be a sunderland bloke
worrying about subdural haemotomers
falling asleep in the bath in comas

Okay, I can honestly say this is the first poem that speaks exactly where your from. Well, maybe not the whole poem but the last few sentences anyway. I really enjoyed this piece. Friend For Life -- Christa Wink

    thanks millie. yeah, just started writing. just got my first ever computer. didn't know nothing, and nobody. watch out for the new poets, and send them an encouraging message. i was just going to post a few poems for posterity, and then pack it in. but some people were very kind to me, and persuaded me to stick around. otherwise i don't know where i'd be today - i still don't know how to work computers without shouting at them ha ha - paul.

Interesting poem Paul.
Are we born to be who we are or is it our environment that molds us?
It also made me think of Billy Joel's song, "Uptown Girl". I really liked it. Thanks for sharing -- Paula.

    i think events that occur sometimes make us in to people we never thought we would become.....good....or...bad. i believe it's birth, love and death that change us the most - i like a bit of billy joel - paul.
