#1
she was filled with regret the moment her lips stopped moving
the part where she had parted them was still looming
upon them like a thunderstorm as they wound their way back home

she was equipped with the smile that had won him over
but he didn't want to register the callback right now
and if he did he sure hid it well beneath his creasing brow
increasing now they rounded the last corner

the last corner

as they pulled to a stop he dropped his toe in the water
couldn't remember the last time that he had fought her
she twigged on and dropped her chin
he wasn't to do a thing
the ending was in sight now, save the torture
of having to follow her round the corner

the last corner

the angles all tightened, the cuts quickened up
no-one else present to interrupt
the eyes narrow down, the lips start to grip
disaster descends as quip builds upon quip

they never made it past
the last corner

the last corner
