With bated breath
the lovers await you
They smile; soon you’ll kill the light
They close their eyes, inhale and exhale deeply
Already they feel the heat … between their legs
They smile knowingly
Soon

The broken-hearted curse your arrival
You herald the long lonely nights
Nights so long, they long…

Through the sound of the telly, you hear them
Your neighbours
The nocturnals in the derelict building
Soon the heat from their fires will warm your wall
Whisps of smoke will drift through the old brick wall
You wanted neighbours, but… not drug addicts
You hope they don’t set the place of fire, again
Sigh…
