I longed for you through inky night and harsh sunlight I called on the stars to help me. I summoned the winds to bring you near. My every thought was spattered with you Scattered by you. Your effervescent tongue had awakened every nerve. I felt flooded by your spirit Engulfed by your soul. And then it stopped. I stopped. And you called. (c) Slumpless
I fought the fight
Then saw the light
In a million drops of rain
Each perfect and sharp
Each pointed at my heart.
You squandered this clown.
Your mean frown
Shows no pity for silly things
For imperfect creatures.
For uncertain features.
Oh to be you, so sure and strong
So full of conviction with your pretentious diction.
You stand in the door , while desperate creatures like me
Try to see
Try to catch a glance
A second chance.
Am I out of chances friend?
Is this really the end?
Have I used them all up ?
Been a chance slut?
I suppose I have and this really is it
It’s a pity you turned out to be such a
I followed the wind today If it can make haste Then so must I. I rode its unpredictable back An elemental goddess in my prime. I moved with the leaves Swept willingly along the path. They danced jigs around my feet, my head I was crowned their Queen. Me? A Queen! I felt all the power of the gusts inside me. A whirling dervish, hovering above ground Nothing but the sound of leaf adulation Oh what a sound! Yesterday I trudged through mud Pulled my collar up against the draught Sighed as the leaves stuck to my shoes. Heard nothing but howling. But today at last I will not freeze I will harness the power of that wonderful breeze. (c) Slumpless
Can I draw the liquid lines of you with my thumbing stroke?
Bleed the sap that I know lingers in the funnel of your heart?
Oh there are ways and means to make your fountain flow
I know most but not all
I will find the waterfall
I strum and hum the tunes that make oblique, the straight lines of your beautiful legs
You beg for more lick and that’s the trick.
Just a breath away.
I’ll stay just a breath away until even a whisper, will send you to simmer
The releasing breaths of a chord too highly strung
Is magic, melody to ears and head that need a patting. A petting.
Wet. Wet. Wetting.
There is only silence when we’re together
In my heart and in my head.
No gaps between us to let echoes bounce and bound.
No slivers of space where splintering whispers can flay my nerves away.
When your skin is on mine
Hush. Hush. Hush.
An occasional hum.
An occasional groan.
But mostly blissful
When we’re alone.
I wrote them for you.
Some of my best work
But you’re not vain just blind
You didn’t think those songs were about you.
And though you felt the sentiments my words evoked
It wasn’t my face you saw
How cruel this world
You told me you were such a fan
And I wanted to say it back.
But I refuse to reveal my muse.
So I watched you dance around the room
A big silly smile on your face
And though my heart was breaking
Crumbling away little by little
My soul knew it was being fed
More melodies than I could ever wish for.
