taken from my book, "Beyond Free"



Think of it all

Blot it out of your mind

Twinkle like a star

Say that you're mine

You know I want you

To "come undone"

Here, let me love you

We'll fall in love

If it's for the best

You'll stay in my head

In order to get over

The way I feel instead

Mountains of anxiety

They fool me, like plenty

Look all around you

There's words spinning 'round you

Camaraderie "is a must, where I'm coming from"

But don't blame me

I don't even know what I mean

Sing to my heart

And stomp out the bees

The wax will fall out my ears

And I will be singing to the deers

But don't be afraid

Of the nothingnesses I may say

When I open my heart

I open all the way

Moralizations hover above my head

But when I drop dead

Will I ever see you again?

What if I get stuck in limbo

And you go to Heaven?

Or even more so

What if one of us gets reincarnated

And not thee other?

Bells don't tend to ring that very often

But as far as I'm concerned

Nothing has to become

Of anything I just make up to go along

When my fear leaves me bedazzled

Sing for me, in my place, where I have left off
