Sometimes

I thrive on the motion of creation
Imagination driven interpretation
making chaotic circulation
through the pathways of my mind.

Penny

In for a penny, in for a pound
pick up the penny you find on the ground,
a thought for your penny, now penny poor,
opportunity knocks just once on the door,

Melancholy

Melancholy comes a-callin' and I
in folly
lowered lids and heavy heart
welcome it home to settle down
nest and burrow
in my chest

Instructions for the Fallen

Climb to your feet when the weight pulls you down
Stand yourself straight as the world bends you round
As despair takes your heart, bears it high like a crown
Keep hold of your head to keep you aground.

I’m Falling

Hills too high to climb, though the sun shines bright above
Space too large to fill, though it may be home to love
Path too long to travel, though you carry me in your arms

Wishes

I wish I had done more
been more
I wish wishes were chips
and cash them all in
I wish I could quit
while I was ahead
Say goodbye to it all
with a winning hand
I wish more than all
That I had never learned of wishes

The Little Man

How brilliant said the little man
With his little heart in his little hand
He usually wore it on his sleeve
But he took it off when she chose to leave
Just like the ring he had always worn
Now weighed him down, his love forlorn
Just brilliant indeed was all he could say
As alone in the day, in his bed, did he lay

Sometimes

Sometimes, I like to lay and think of her
Nothing too complicated
Just enough to keep me sated
Enough to keep me sane
