'oh the cruel rain & the wind'

An unconventional suggestion:

"I've only got one good shirt left and it smells of stale perfume"

If you parse this little line out there's an entire story within it. A man in tough times only has one shirt worth wearing left, but he may as well have none because he just can't bring himself to wash it because the smell that clings to it is all that he has left to remind him of the girl who who is now gone.

All the lines you wrote here, LOVELY: and

They are painting the passports brown

Forget the dead you left they will not follow you

never could learn to drink that blood and call it wine

Draw conclusions on the wall

See the writing on the wall


Proud neath heated brow
Flung down by corps evangelists
EH...The whole poem MY BACK PAGES

there’s violence in the eyes, girl, so let us not be enticed on the way out of Egypt, through Ethiopia, to the judgment hall of Christ

You can have the best there is, but it's gonna cost you all your love. You won't get it from money.

true, like ice, like fire

Louise holds a handful of rain tempting you to defy it

you raise up your head and say is this where it is and somebody points to you and says it's his and you say what's mine and someone else says where what is and you say oh my god am i here all alone?

Oh the evening train is rolling
Along the homeward way
all my hopes are over the horizon
all my dreams have gone away
the hillside darkly shaded
stars fall from above
all the joys of earth have faded
the nights untouched by love

I cannot grasp the shadows
that gather near the door
rain falls round my window
I wish I'd seen you more
the path is ever winding
the stars they never age
the morning light is blinding
all the worlds a stage
