VOL. VII

Dutchbag

I feel blue when I’m sure I like you more than you do


I feel blue when you talk in your language,

I can’t follow the conversation and am sat there

like a stale-old-useless sandwich


I feel blue when we run out of words

and have nothing more to say

“oh let’s Google that by the way....”


I feel blue when I pluck up the courage

to put my arm around you,

which in a few seconds is hastily removed


I feel blue even when I’m next to you

with such a distance,

babe why the resistance?


I feel blue with the unspoken words of what this is,

what do you intend?

I’m struggling with my thoughts,

it’s like I can’t swim and I’ve been thrown into the deep end


I feel blue that I now don’t hear from you,

I’m left wondering what did I do?

I’m not settled,

I can’t move on and yet again,

not found the right one


I feel blue that deep down I know and always knew it’s not you
