For those who’ve been missing “johnboy life theatre” I now offer a small piece of where I’m at.
If you don’t like angst ridden blank verse then best give it a miss.
You can offer it all
Everything you’ve got. All that you are.
The very essence of your being.
The best bottles of wine, the funniest DVD’s
The smoothest dacquiris, the coolest shows.
Witty conversation into the smallest hours.
You can share the deepest secrets of your soul
And the darkest desires of your heart.
All your fears, all your hopes.
But, if you were born without that vital spark,
Some tiny missing piece of character,
Then all you can do is lie between your teeth,
Run before the wind,
And pray you can fake it long enough.
Because no-one will love you for your honesty.
