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
