Love Letter

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 No other lover could snub like you
and still survive this affair;

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 the constant promise of better days
dissipating in December drizzle;

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 the embarrassment of underachieving
before friends served adulatory notes,
your indifference to constant failure
traipsing away at the final whistle
without even looking into my eyes.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Then your tacit assumption I’ll be there
to cheer your next entrance, ignore your impotence.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 I have caught pneumonia for you,
fallen through wooden seats
chanted your name in snow,
parked, to be booked
to prevent being late
for our torrid love affair.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 I have dreamt of Europe with you
but Scunthorpe,Llincoln, Hull and Carlisle
are the furthest we’ve been.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Is this a fling or a disease?

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Is there a drug to take away the longing
that fastens like a vice
every Saturday and many Tuesday nights?

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Or am I doomed to worship Wrexham Football Club forever?
