celebrating and creating our own LGBT history

day sixteen

Euroboy

 

Meet me in a library if you think you have to leave me

Then I can hide behind the fiction

And not think about the drama

Perhaps I’d read some Stephen King as a way to face the horror

Of our own lives as they unravel

Like a badly written story.

It’s not easy when the night comes

And the world is full of demons

And you turn to face the one you love

And they turn to skin and bone

 

Meet me in a coffee bar if you’ve got something you need to tell me

And if you have to say it quickly

We can order an espresso

Because there’s not much time for reason when the shot is fast and bitter

Best to take it all in quickly

Before it blows your world completely.

It’s not easy when the night comes

And the world is full of demons

And you turn to face the one you love

And they turn to skin and bone

 

Meet me in a restaurant if you’re going to have to tell me

That you need a second course

And that it’s going to get much harder

I won’t pass any judgements and I won’t ask any questions

I’ll just hold you until the pain stops

Then we’ll rebuild our lives together.

It’s not easy when the night comes

And the world is full of demons

And you turn to face the one you love

And they turn to skin and bone

 

So we’re saying goodbye my Euroboy

Goodbye my Euroboy

Give him a hand with his luggage

Better kiss him on the forehead

Wave him off from the station

Secretly glad that he’s leaving

Because when he comes back, he’ll come back a man

 

 

Anon, Kent
