I don’t know what.

I don’t know what. 7/28/19

I don’t know what

I’m trying to say

is it a confession

or a poem

or an unraveling of words?

I just don’t know.

I write as long

as my heart speaks

I write to empty

this foolish mind.

I write to fill a void

in this bathtub of my soul

so much just water

with nothing left to fill.

Poetry is my shadow

She follows me around

whispers her sweetest nothings,

then she slams me to the ground.

I don’t know why.

I don’t know if I am confessing

to the everything I’ve done

or simply writing poetry

the lost songs

never song.

Sadness among song lyrics

Sadness among song lyrics

as a song trapped in half

like a fluttering moth,

mumbles lyrics in my head-

just random snatches of song

now that i found you,

your the one who can

pull me through

deliver me,

deliver me…”

( a song by Sarah Brightman called Deliver Me.”

then I cannot recall the rest of the song

except for “deliver me, out of the? sadness? madness?”

The butterfly lies trapped and broken

in my head. It stops singing to me,

because it does not know the rest of the words.

so the butterfly twists turns and hums

stumbling backwards onto the chorus,

all over again, hmmm hmmm hmmm

Deliver me.” hmm hmm

the butterfly snaps shut its wings and mouth.

I sit here vaguely wondering,

what the hell

am I thinking about?
