Fundamental Feelings


Ripped out of courage

There is no mountain top that I can let

__the water flow from

It's not my fault why people come up to me

__and run

Renting thee atmosphere just to crumble and jump

I'm hearing none of ya

I'm closing my ears now

Don't bug me, ladies and gentlemen

__for the refrigerator magnet knows all

And when you fade away

You can always burry your pillow

Don't talk to giant demons that help

__the weight fall

Downward, tumbling to fulfill

__the most cavity filled accesses of

____tarring away up a sleeve

I want none of nonsense

__so come up to feed

These Marshons my see-saws

__and climb up above

I'm tarring my thoughts out

As if that's what I need

It's bound to fallow me out

To a trucks felt pen stop

Later then, emptying

__all it's frostbitten tinkles

That lock up the skin

With soft reminisces

Of just about anything

So run me over with your buckets of cheese

No common undertow

__can pull you away

For you've stained my heart

It pulls me apart

Look at us now

You bring about whatever comes out

It's not so cruel to feel for you

When you mean just about anything

That is needed to be meant

As tangerine

__as lemonade

But as Gatorade

__as strawberry fields

____on a sunny day

Where all the froggies throw down

Getting whatever done

__that is needed to be finished

But skip this

And hold tight

The mark you leave upon my life

Is a shadow in the lovely dim night

Freckles at the corners of home

__can back up and fall down

____like a parrot on a landing strip

No time to delay

Shall I see you at work on Friday?
