The Obvious Denied



His first reaction on finding himself irreparable severed from the others is to bask in the comfort of the isolation that he had been searching for





DonÕt pretend you care again

and stop demanding where IÕve been

itÕs a long time too far alone


Your girdleÕs growing tight my friend

and I wonÕt deign to not defend

Your weatherÕs growing bolder yet


ItÕs a long time too far alone


If marriage makes the most of us

a greener green than weÕve become

will deign to swallow up our hearts


The obvious all but denied

I will wait Ōtill you arrive

ItÕs a long time too far alone
