When We Were Young

when it comes
it comes down to this
such a long way from where
it started just for us
I know I know
and so do you
that the love that we once had
has faded down the paths
like loves
that lasted
just for lips,
and oh those eyes
and all it makes me do now
is want to cry
you’re in pain, I am too
and together we are making
life to be a big taboo
it needs to hurt to make me cry
the tears of laughter have gone and
left us by
only I can say, only I can see
I loved you with all my soul
and that was me
but now I know
but now I see
the pain it comes
from a need
that I still need
and yours of course
it comes from me
to all the others
once and true
and those that disbelieve

Just Some Words

so what do you say when the world goes crazy
when everyone around you seems so lazy
and your mind is stuck in nothing but hazy
like drowning in a sea of endless jacuzzi

I want to know more but keep learning less
my time on this world just tells me to guess
the more I try seems like a bigger mess
and all I have left is something to compress

I am feeling trapped in my own creation
like a teacher holding me back for detention
or my outwardness squashed by depression
I could use a little accommodation

so scratch my back and tickle my toes
and find some peeps to call my beaus
my numbers are fading and this I knows
so call on the stars to throw me some virgos

Not today

I have done nothing
I am getting swallowed up
in my own self pity
my strength is gone
out the window with
my last seizure
down the hole with
the nothingness
of life
today is not the day
to talk to me
I will take you and
everyone you know
down with me
so just leave
me be
