Absolute Beginners


We are absolute beginners

and as long as we’re together

the rest can go to hell.

The leaves whisper heroes

and stars fall in the lake

for nothing much can happen

with nothing much at stake.

I absolutely love you

can they understand?

And my love is your love,

what a surprise.

Don’t talk of heartaches,

I remember them all,

strung out in heaven’s high,

the stars look very different today.

If you say run, I’ll run with you,

for we’re absolute beginners,

nothing will make us stay,

we could steal time, just for one day.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
