I will memorise you.
Tell me your stories –
Fix them tightly in my mind.
Well-worn lives that shine behind your eyes,
That speak of past and future like
Those memories of histories unwritten.
I will listen.
Let nothing go unsaid.
Speak of bombs and barricades. The price of bread.
Talks of trains and talk of ships
Let every flooded fen flow from your lips and
speak to me. I need no pen to write this tale.
I will memorise you.
I need no pen to write this tale. Speak to me.

Those memories of histories unwritten
That speak of past and future like
Well-worn lives that shine behind your eyes.
Fix them tightly in my mind.
