one tough winter

one tough winter

came on strong stayed the same

she said her name was Liz

seemed good enough to me

invited me in stay for a while

took a month before it was time to go

being indoors hogging the fire

drinking smoking the days away

& if I saw her in the street again

I’m not sure I’d recognise her face

but I do remember the warmth

the bed I stayed too long in

being a stranger in need of comfort

who took more than he gave
