"My greatest trouble is getting the curtain up and down." - T.S. Eliot


walk on, walk off
flying is rough

up and down, down and up
nothing is enough

this ground
no more than a place to walk

those lips
no more than a way to talk

come with me, and we'll take flight
come with me, we'll take the night

don't try to whisper
don't try to talk

words are simply no good
when you don't know where you've stood

you say "I love..."
I hear two words

but only in glances, remote second chances
will I ever hear the third

This is great, I like the rhyme scheme of it and how not every one has a line that rhymes with it. Very good!
