For a sunrise or a sunset, you’re manic or you’re depressed. Will you ever feel ok?
For a sunrise or a sunset, your lover is an actress. Did you really think she’d stay?
the way that you screamed
the way that you cried
the way that you wipe your eyes
and fall against my side
Now I know that I’m blind
And that you’re all I see
And yeah I know it’s not clever
But I just want you with me
I’ll tell you all my secrets
but I lie about my past
So send me off to bed forevermore
Tom Waits, “Tango Till They’re Sore”
What’d you do when I was gone?”
I pretty much just hung around.
“Did you get any work done?”
I said, “No, I just hung around
I’ve got a lack of motivation, a lapse in ambition,
I sit and watch this fire burn and wish I could burn with it.
I’ve fallen by the wayside of pretentious young writers looking for inspiration in party-time liars.
I am a visitor here; I am not permanent.
