    Ach bonnie lass, you’ll not hurt any more
    Standing under the water of the waterfall,
    Washes all the blood off, washes the shadow
    Down to the pool we dove in as weans
    And all your skin’s young again with no marks
    At your throat where the Cori Cas wind cut into you
    No more peeling on your cheeks where the salt of
    The Forth Jabbed you

    And when we were down Troon Beach
    Among the sand, way down all by the shingle
    With you all made up in black like you saw your
    Funeral coming in two years’ time and I didn’t
    Ach, that night you had your head in your heart
    And your heart in your head and your feet on the sand
    Dancing in my hands a gothy pixie
    With no wings cos the gale would pick you up
    And fling you into the heavens pulling me with you

    And under the drookit downpour we fell
    Down on the sand, wet sand at my back, rain
    In the howling gale like bleak thorns it was that cold
    Thunder rising to a dull shriek whipping clumps of sand
    Into our hair; mine a mess, yours falling always falling
    Around your cheeks and we were spinning in dark skies
    A hurricane of our own making

    And I wonder sometimes if you knew you had the decline in you
    And lived hard cos of it, saturating time with all the sensations
    You could manage with everybody around you only being alive an instant
    With our days and our worlds scurrying by, but we were still all colourful
    Amongst a pale blurry ghost
    Ah, you were that beautiful
    And none of it’s right
    It’s all that pale and all that ugly
    Ah Christ I miss you, lassie
    I miss you, lassie
    I miss you

    This one held my attention VERY well...

    Thank you Moments.

    I like how it is written in an older format but still reads as present day material...if that makes any sense...
