An Ode to Dreaming

An Ode to Dreaming

Dreaming
Everybody needs a dream
Everybody needs to dream

Dreaming
Lets you be everything
You want to be
Lets you do everything
You want to do

Dreaming
Frees you
From yourself
Frees
Your mind
Body
Soul
From everything

A Not a Poem Poem

A Not a Poem Poem

I will not write a poem
For I am not a poet
I cannot makes things rhyme
I’ve tried for quite some time
So will I write a poem?
NO!

I can’t write poetry
I’ve tried to all my life
Once, I tried to write a poem
About a husband and his wife
It sounded really silly
So I crumbled it up into a ball
That’s why I decided
That I couldn’t write poetry at all
Am I gonna write a poem?
NO!

Maybe Crazy Is Catchin

You know, in my day
I’ve met some mighty strange folks
People you just might call crazy
But sometimes I get to thinkin’
They just might be the only sane people among us
Maybe crazy is catchin’.

I’ve spit farther than most of the guys
And seen some mighty strange “planes” in the air
I got layers....different flavors
There’s the girl the whole world gets to see
And then there’s me, hiding inside
Maybe crazy is catchin’.

I’ve learned that forever can be an hour, a day
I’ve stood in the rain without gettin’ wet
I’ve been punished for every imaginable crime
I’ve died before...I’ll die again
Sometimes I think this whole world’s crazy
Maybe crazy is catchin’.

Running For My Life

Running
Down the hall
The bell is ringing
I’m late for class
I’m late for life

Running
From this thing
This big, black, ugly
Swirling, shifting, changing thing
This thing that is everything
But is thin as air
Is really nothing at all

Running
From this thing
This thing I call “The Black”
That chases me
Seemingly
For all eternity

The Princess and the White Knight

My life is a fairy tale
That’s not as great as it sounds
You see, I’m Cinderella
The lonely princess
Trapped
In a turret
Inside of the castle
In my mind

I am lost
Cold
And alone
No one understands
No one sees this me
Waiting at the window
Watching the destruction
Watching the outside world
Through her little hole
In the turret’s wall
