Lost Verses

Three, Two, One…

Thoughts run together–hear the roar of a crowd
Wake, inhale influences, reach for coffee in that chipped cup
Must run when dreams run long 8:29 is here, then gone.

Moments jolt like random jets
sprinkling the lawn when no one’s home.

Stand at the door keep checking a watch
How many years can it go before someone sets off
in the middle of the street?

Just wait–e x p l o d e.

Boxes

For years you’ve been packing emotions in tiny boxes. What are you afraid of? Does it come from a dream? Some long forgotten dream? Seeded deep in your mind is a metal fan catching fire, Bigfoot stomping down Broadway and a place where boys and girls can float up and down knobby apple trees…Where did those years go? How many boxes surround you now? Some boxes can even carry the sweat and blood of memories into the next life.
But where is that?

Tune Out

It never happened
You never reached it
Hands outstretched
Your melody completed

Found Verse

I can’t go on
With everyone
Disappearing
Every phantom
Memory I keep
Peels lifetimes away
Here it is…

Original version of ‘Boxes’

For years you’ve been packing those emotions in tiny plastic boxes. What are you afraid of? You can’t confront it. Instead you run upstairs and slam the door, escaping imaginary beasts below.

Does it come from a dream? Some long forgotten dream? Seeded deep in your mind is a metal fan catching fire, Bigfoot stomping down Broadway and boys and girls that float up and down knobby apple trees.

Where did those years go? How many boxes surround you now? What happens when all you love is lost? Then, you’re left with just the boxes. Boxes that carry the sweat and blood of your memories into the next life.

But where is that?
