Mix a favourite song with the contents of your junk drawer
I Got Dragged Away With
those wild horses in me,
didn’t know they’d drag me away.
made a quiet exit with a sleight of hand.
one day they’ll pull me back, you said,
like a snapped rubber band.
slide away, melt away with those
candles in the window,
burning for anyone who’s left home.
but we’re sliding apart all the same,
never saw it in you, your twisted ties,
never saw the dull ache coming that
I don’t feel so much anymore.
Those wild horses left me many years ago
