If Only I Was There


The roots of my brain

The gamma rays that display

The motion of the potion

And then the begetting of the gruesome

Launched into the files

Brought back into the seat of my pants

I've been laying low with a bad back

Looking for the lost meaning

__to be found again

Shuffling thoughts

__to shatter them inside

Most of being begun

Out of so much fun

Sinking terribly

Letting the world sparkle with life

Gets a little harder

With the creeps that walk this Earth

I splatter into suggestions

Emerged into drowning into suffering

Pull me out

__and I just dive back in

Is it my choice?

I don't know

"Is it easy to forgive?"

Uncle Sam says "we must punish"

If I ever let doubt struggle

__to come over me

Even the bacon grease

__can tease me with delight

In the most honest way

__of scorning myself so freely

____I could pick myself up completely

But where I lead myself to arrive

__somewhere where I can easily strive

I get pulled into a gloom

And sucked into a black hole

Maybe grieved into a time of goodbye

My fairy tale of a relationship

Between me and Chloey the cat

Slapped me in the face

As she passed away

I'm not allowed to feel relieved

__of my pain

It hurts she is gone

And I just lose my brain

Over the cheesy drops

__from a cheese waterfall

I get bewildered with madness

But what's the big idea here?

Am I just getting my wits

__hammered out of me?

Or am I just losing all hope

__growing sadder and sadder?

Or fatter and fatter?

It's never gonna be O.K.

It's much too horrible

To not have my kitty
