Is It Sunny Side Up or Over Easy?

Sometimes I sit here broken hearted thinking about the days

When I had no cares and lived everyday in a daze

I’m older now and have lots of mind left to grow

No end in sight for this power’s so slow

Wanting to make things better

Wanting to change the world

Forcing miracles to happen

Experimenting for cures

Running from place to place breaking my neck

Getting boney fingers and breaking a sweat

Drenched in fear, constantly looking for slack

Get me the hell out of here

There’s no time for that

What if life started differently new?

Would it contain a middle verse?

What if the past always changed?

Would it have a similar course?

If we were left for dead

Quickly would anyone show?

Laying so graciously still

Years worth of blanket thick snow

UNGUIDE THIS GUIDED

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Sometimes people just don’t understand what it’s like
To be haunted by death
To be haunted by life

To people without this unfathomable gift
It can’t be turned off like any button or switch
It follows you everywhere, wherever you go
It’s like a misunderstood web fan or lousy night stalker
You can hear it and see it
Sometimes taste it and smell it.
However the fear originates in the touching
It can take over your head and not ever once mind.
Do you know what it’s like to talk to the dead alive?
To know things without lecture?
To smell an idea or thought?
To hear silent treatment?
To see the kettle say “You’re black,” to the pot?
These are my everyday pleasures
But they are nothing I want
I crave to unknow the truth
Wishing for screaming of silence
Desperate for a blank canvas to watch as the beautiful sun rises
When you have it, you hate it
If inexperienced, you’re jealous
Sometimes things to be studied are better off when unguided.

INSTANT HEALTH (A Tribute)

Sometimes we just have to give up

Divulge ourselves in the basking dusk

There’s a pain so deep that can’t be written with words

A pain that makes you wish to freeze the whole world

My mother raised me to stand alone

If ever came a day when I would be on my own

Now that a loss of sweet symphonies has come along

I can’t fathom the pain for what it brings on

A broken window doesn’t need replacing

Simply change the glass in the casing

But with the makeup of genes and the impossibility of reversing aging

Mortality ensues and your personalities leave with you.

No wonder fear is brought on by the unknown of one’s dying

A lot of hours will be spent in your new destination

You’ll have a good excuse now for procrastination

Sorry you’re gone and know you’re now well

Glad that your pain has deceased; you’re no longer going through hell
