Conker & The Wheel

from by Luke Keegan



You fell like from a chestnut tree
conker shining up at me
its been too long, I'd forgotten
how it feels when you find one

Do i dare to reach and break the seal
take you from the land
cause i long to touch and i long to feel
hold you in my hand

my timing wasn't perfect
both arms frozen and off set
from the road you turn to go
it felt like the wheels had left their spokes

Ive tried to turn and I'll try to turn
but I'm nothing without my wheels
I'll try to learn and Ive tried to learn
but i hate the way it feels

making shadows from the dark
an owl to the barn departs
leaving soon leaving fast
leaving nothing only the nights remarks
no white from a tunnel of black
no time for the holes or the cracks
no cross on a penny-less map
no morning with a moon out to catch

with the lights and the movement
it made know clear coherence
i thought this must be an illusion
my eyes are playing games and I'm losing

and I'll run... running after you
