You Never Miss?

And You’ll Be
Like Clementine

A Social

Better Late
Than Never?

One Out,
One In

Out Of
Your Shade

Into Twilight

You Are There

Commentary
Our perceptions of reality areaffected by our emotional state.  Here, loneliness & isolation result in the creation of an invisible 'friend' who is somehow always just out of reach.  And is this a future which awaits me?


 I  know that you're there.

When I am dressing

you're watching through the shutters.

It's naughty to peek!


I know that you're there,

hiding in the bushes on the far side of the street

or somewhere


I find it reassuring just to know that someone's there.

There's nothing for you to be frightened of

yet you have to play your games.

You have to play your games.


I know that you're there

when I'm cooking the dinner,

laying the table for one.


I know that you're there

when I'm doing the washing up,

drying the dish.

Come and eat if you wish.


But sometimes I even wonder if you're there.

Sometimes I find myself screaming at you:

"Won't you come in?"

"Won't you come in?"


You can't be warm out in the snow.

It's not so hot in here.

You just have to come to my door.

You'll find it's open.

I'm waiting for you.


I know that you're there.

I know that you're there.

I hope you are there.

I know you are.
