If I could give you a sad smile.


 
                                    
Who would take a broken heart?
                   
Ugly and slower than some

Who would want a silent talker?

Who would want second-hand love?


No lady needs a tattered dress
                                           
From a bombed charity shop
                                           
No one hopes first for a second-try
                                  
Or a love proved to drop.

                                   
I can offer a collage of love

To somebody someday 
                                 
But I couldn't give an accurate

Self-portrait 

                                         
I can give you what I gave her
                                        
Though I value it a little less
                                            
If I could give you even a sad smile
                                    
I confess I’d feel blessed

                                    
Who would take a broken heart?
                                       
Ugly and slower than some
                                       
Who would want a silent talker?
                                        
Who would want second-hand love?


There’s a sale on for all of me

No, don’t all rush at once

I’ll make you take a second look

Make sure I’m chosen.


There are elephants in my mind 

They’re spectacular, but they’re hers

My heads filled with stamping 

It’s really nearly burst


Who would want 4 punctured tyres

A car keyed green to white

Who would want a broken windscreen

And no head-lights.


Who would take a broken heart?
                                       
Ugly and slower than some
                                       
Who would want a silent talker?
                                        
Who would want second-hand love?
