I'm just a soul, hooked on magic & poetry sandwiches. My words are fools, dancing as they flirt with the life you give them... & then there's the naughty stuff that wakes me in the middle of the night... one day all that cheese'll kill me.
What did I just read the old guy said My words are fools flirting with the life you give them I said Sometimes it's the naughty stuff that wakes me in the middle of the night and sometimes it makes no sense at all to anyone but me but there are over 171,000 words to choose from so the permutations are almost endless
Shake hands with a rainbow and part of you must know there comes a moment when you have to let go Holding on to forever only works in the movies The real world starts where the subway groans when 6 am coffee burns through the cold Each gray city breath marks a freedom they stole from the same crush of nobodies all paid up to trade their souls counting every day every month every year while time drowns dreams for a pot of gold
Tomorrow we can start again the first day of our new life The war will be over cats and dogs will become friends Politicians will never lie the sun will shine nicely and the birds will sing on time Technology will save the world everyone will smile and say good morning like they mean it No-one will get old unless they want it Death and the Devil will sulk for eternity-- and after he pats us all on the back up in the sky God will dismantle heaven
One day we must leave the exit is the same but not one of us can be certain of the path The answer perches like a king enthroned in silence upon the hard edges of time where dunes of logic shimmer promises to muddle senses and trembling horizons conspire to deceive the eye At the place where distance and direction become equal where good and evil vie for our choices in life beyond that surely something waits

Another day waits the trees sigh for spring lovers crave summer while sparrows guard silence in a huddle of icy wings and I dream you by the fire braiding my hopes through your hair chaining daises round my heart as time drives the last nail home into the prison we'll always share for you know I have waited this long have waited a lifetime for you
