The Show Never Stops

oh yea, we had a headache today
and also a luncheon meeting
a new project being proposed
and, of course, he was a half hour late

so while I’m waiting, the waitress was fine
she brought me a paper to fill up my time
a slam, a bam, a wicked little twitch
a seizure hits my right arm, man what a bitch

I get up and ask for directions to the loo
not that far the first door to the left for you
I go in there and close the door real fine
and put my arm out can’t let it incline

I push my palm up, flat against a wall
to stop to muscles from seizing I also stand tall
it pauses at my wrist, while others muscles are seizing
I got it to stop within three minutes, how pleasing

Back out to the table, hand and arm are dead
He shows up for the meeting, have him butter my bread
We talk and eat discuss different angles
It is going so well no run ins with tangles

We agree on the next meet and how it should go
I get a ride home with lamps don’t cha know
I get inside and just to chill for a while
end up napping not knowing that I’ll

be woken by another seizure 2 for the day
jump out of bed and head for the wall again say
do the same trick with the arm and the hand
it stops quickly but I’m feeling bland

I’ll be down for three days, recovery time for me
I hope everyone’s patient as each day you will see
Improvement for sure but I will be still slow
at least I will be strong enough to go

patient, yea right, I just got a call from the studio
there is a session tonight, from 9 until 5
so where’s my socks to hell with my hair
here we go again baby I’ve just got to be there

…the show never stops

Headache

I am awake
with a headache
I can see the pain
on the other
side of my eyes
tears waiting to form
but can not
migraine, no
just pain
enough to say
give up today
but I won’t…

I Am Free

wow, there must be something in the air today
for the simple fact that I am having a depressive day
there is no reason for which I can see
but of course there is, I am free

I am free to go back to bed today, and sleep
roll over a few more times and not make a peep
there is no reason for which I can see
but of course there is, I am free

I awaken with tears in my eyes and on my cheeks
wondering how they got there and what are the mystiques
there is no reason for which I can see
but of course there is, I am free

lets just face it I am in a funk
all I want to do is sleep and eat junk
there is no reason for which I can see
but of course there is, I am free

I can get up alone and roam the big valley
but I’d rather sit in this place or roam the back alley
there is no reason for which I can see
but of course there is, I am free

I feel as though the world has left me behind
not that I mind that it is all in my mind
there is no reason for which I can see
but of course there is, I am free

so tonight will be this way tomorrow yet different
I will hold back the tears let no one make judgement
there is no reason for which I can see
but of course there is, I am free

Hello My Friend

hello my friend with an old soul so sweet
difficult to remember those that we know, how neat
don’t forget me with my old sore feet

you have found my love and shared her with me, discreet
through Davids pen you had us meet
and you it was we had the pleasure to greet

hello my friend with an old soul so sweet
do you hear the drum with it’s life long beat
going on and on until the next suite

my girl you mean so much to meet
a lullaby for those that need, for you a love seat
are you still waiting for your retreat

I follow your writing still, it moves within its heartbeat
I wonder though if you are on the browbeat
or maybe you have just taken the backseat

talks with you are few but oh so complete
do you have time for another, dutch treat
or allow me to lead you to our box seat

hello my friend with an old soul so sweet
do you hear the drum with it’s life long beat
pull over, lets talk, on the next side street

Myself

no time to sneeze
falling on my knees
can’t seem to please
myself
gotta go get to the bank
got a feeling like I sank
I think I should just spank
myself
what will happen if I can’t
will I need to get an implant
I know that I can enchant
myself
just wait and look at me
I’m the one that’s almost free
so close I will not deceive
myself

Different Thoughts

Here is another oldish one, started about two months ago and finished tonight.

how many people can be hurt today
can I shock them into saying that i should go away
or can I beat the doors so hard that it has been led a stray

friends, friends what good am I to them
I don’t know them, never wanted them, they could just be phlegm
even if they are to be the friend of the femme

I shit on myself for the things that I say
I read so much into I spit it out like hay
and where do I have the right to even think I can play

everyone else can eat it and die
I care not about them, this is no lie
so pull up the reins and let the dust fly

I am a misanthrope and you are my lady
I will do anything and I love to call you Baby
I want to be with you at least til I am eighty

I want a family to honor and raise
we can all walk around wearing silly berets
let them try to stop us there will be hell to pay

how many people can be hurt today
the ones that I ask to just go away
and not be a part of my last assay

and you, are my gem among gems
lets live in a house they can not condemn
and float it inside the canal of Schlemm

I Lied Today

This was written a while ago and I just wanted to get it out of my draft pile…

I’m fragile
this sucks and I am fuckin fragile
I am trying to get a new life
I want it so bad
and what happens today
I see the wife that I want to leave
and I lie
about a doorknob
I was going to get a new one
I forgot
and I lied
made up some story about how
solid it looked
and
what a great job she did putting it
back together, in other words
I lied
now I feel like shit because I lied
sent her an email explaining that
I actually did forget about it
but
that does not make me feel any better
in fact it make me feel worse
I don’t want to lie anymore
and
why do I always lie to her
anyway
what is the deal that makes me do this
what is it about her that says
make it up and it better be good
or else
get the fuck outta here
well, I am trying to do that
I am trying to leave
why can’t I just clear my brain and
be gone…
