A Poem by David R. Mellor



Dating in a State

 

I’m hanging around on a dating
In a state
Keyboards covered in tobacco, crisps, sticky with beer
Telling someone I like to climb mountains,
I’m calm and sensitive and in control
But I’m typing.. words …I can’t ….see
 
And I’m starting to spill truths
 
“Divorced” “Kids”
 
“Oh “
 
I like betting, drinking, smoking ,doing most things to stop me thinking or feeling
 
“Mmm”
 
Kids miles away, and I’m up in the air
 
………..
 
Are you still there?
