DON’T LET ME IN

Don ’t let me in,
For I’d rather you lock me out,
Loudly bang the door,
For if I come in,
I’ll stay,
Yes, if I come in,
I’ll stay.

Let me stay in the rain,
Let hailstones hit me hard,
Till I’m wet and sick,
For I might then decide to leave,
For if you let me in,
I’ll stay,
Yes, if I come in,
I’ll stay.

Let your dog called Mark bark,
Let him chase me off,
For if he bites I’ll get a jab,
But if you let me in,
Know I’ll stay,
Yes, if I come in,
I’ll stay.

Don’t be afraid to-
Don’t pity my sweet sob,
Don’t forsake your watchdog task,
Don’t let me in,
For if you let me in,
I’ll stay,
Yes, if I come in,
I’ll stay.

Know better please,
Than to let me in then out,
For I hate leaving,
I hate goodbyes,
I hate moving out,
And setting off,
All sombre and lovelorn,
So please,
For this piece,
Give me some peace,
Don’t let me in.

FOE OR FRIEND?

Two questions linger in my mind,
As silence rules all around-
Are you a friend?
Or are you a foe?
My eyes look into hers
I suddenly feel it,
She can’t be a foe,
Look how she smiles at me
I quit surveying hers
She goes on to talk
Telling tales of olden days
Awakening memories buried in the past
I judge the tone of her voice
And sense what feels like betrayal,
But quickly shove it off
Am I wrong to judge her
Has she a dagger in her purse?
Or are these merely speculations?
Her folks in the past rejected me,
As a bad egg that doesn’t hatch,
Whose inner parts spill odour and filth,
A disgust distinct from afar.
I suddenly question this affection,
This friendliness is uncomfortable,
I feel confused!
Yet love covers a multitude of sin
I choose to love.
Even though evil would have me avenge,
Love bears all that,
I am free from foe and friend.
