Like a chess board..
May not be perfect
Everyone fits into a place.
You know who they are..
You know your relationship to them.
What if someone takes that board
Throws it high into the air.
You stand watching all of the pieces
Landing this way and that.
Back to front.
You remain suspended.
Looking down at them.
Unrecognisable in their new roles.
Chess board no longer your life.
You no longer fit.
Totally confused. Head fucked.
another reality? parallel universe.
anxious, angry so very scared.
Floating fuzzy, stand outside your body.
stand and watch the chaos.
No one is who you thought they were.
Like a sick game of musical chairs.
Who are these strangers
Not family anymore
lies and deceit
A charade an elaborate false tapestry
Years to embroider
Minutes to unpick.
Davina McColl your a lier
Long lost families
Happy endings, smiling faces,
Open doors big family reunions
Happy tears and welcoming arms.
Chess pieces that fall into place.
Not on this board.
