November 1982 - August 1984

 

Antagonist

 

you and I

we've had our fights

some of them

            mine

some of them

            yours

most

for no reason at all

other than simply

we had nothing worse to do

some for ideals

we have long since

laughed at

and still we argue

and rant

and rave

 

it's about time

that one of us gave

a helping hand

to the other

to put it all

behind closed doors

 

I'm reaching

but I can't quite make it

please!  don't pull back

 

I need you

 

Number one, thanks to E. F.

E. F. a poetry pal, helped me

not to use capitals at the start

of every line this is the result
