Talk, Talk

Talk, talk A talking head A constant stream Of incessant chatter Talk, talk Words in my head Is anyone listening Does it really matter? Aren’t we all talking to ourselves? A running commentary on our lives Describing that reality Emphasizing finality Gibbering our thoughts aloud Streaming podcasts in our head Writing, filming or recording The words we just said Talk, talk The walking dead It’s a constant dream That doesn’t matter Talk, talk Words that I have read Is anyone listening? Or am I already dead? likeheartlaughterwowsadangry0

All Sixes and Sevens

Six strings Strumming along Six stars In this song Six days to work hard And one to rest Six metals to reduce To the best A sixth sense Or six of the best Perfection Add one for Completion Six points to make Six cakes to bake Six maids a dancing Around a point Six gates to open Six planets around A golden Sun This song is nearly done Seventh heaven Seven seals Seven balanced Gently heals Six Seven On our way To that place heaven likeheartlaughterwowsadangry0

A Debt

You owe $5.56 Owe You owe Debt Owing Money Not a favor Buried in debt Owing you Owing me Silly me Indebted to you For what? A priceless thought Some brave and foolish action? No $5.56 That’s what. likeheartlaughterwowsadangry0

The Question Song

Am I alone in thinking these things? My imagination stirred not shaken Is it just a feature of disintegration? Do I run and hide or simply wait On the inevitable. Is action now too little too late? And simply horrendously regrettable? How will I know right from wrong? How do I tell true poetry from a lyrical song? What happens when we die? Why are we even born? Why are people so brutally cruel? Why do little children suffer? Why do the words that I utter Fail to find a mark? Is anyone really listening? Does anyone really care? Is anyone out there? Or am I all there is Alone Forlorn And ultimately forgotten. likeheartlaughterwowsadangry0

Love is all it Takes

Violence flares Bombs fall and rockets rain No one cares No one seems to give a damn Taking sides Pointing blame Both sides Are exactly the same! The only winner here Is the policy of hate Perpetrated by both sides Closed minds Innocents die Children cry No one gives a damn Love bleeds Hope dies Truth lies Evil stirs them on to war Stop this insanity No more Love is all it takes So simple a solution So hard to implement The resolution Is love. likeheartlaughterwowsadangry0

Divine Mind

Slinky silver surface Golden granite glow Show me what’s up And point me down below Ripples disturb the surface Images moving to and fro Shimmering silent shards With nowhere left to go Molecules are jostled Writhing en masse Weird wispy waters Lapping up to grass Moving like Mercury But not so retrograde Patterns in the mind The Gods play charade This pool goes deep Constantly water churning Eternal perpetual motion Intelligently discerning All is mind of the deity Vibrating fractal thought Reality as it might be Or was, but now forgot likeheartlaughterwowsadangry0

Fame Seeker

How fitting To see your name in print Fame always eluded you Now you are a household name A life lived in vain How very apt To see you truly succeed To have all those things You chased and fought for daily How bloody erie What a shame Your fame came too late Posthumous recognition Are you watching from some other place? Is there a smile upon your ghostly face? likeheartlaughterwowsadangry0

Atomic Antics

A fork in the road Tensions mounting Worries echoed Which way to go? Seeking insights Help me take a decision Claim my birthright Taking the low road Sinking deep into darkness Sluggish movements Through the bitter blackness A nightmare ride Emergence into light The warming encouragement Of a hint of sunlight Landing on my skin Choices are irrelevant The future ordained Tomorrow is already ancient Observed and now collapsed The path I must take Is ordained by the watcher The decision I must make Chosen by an actor Quantum mechanics Parallel worlds Atomic antics Me likeheartlaughterwowsadangry0

Hexagrams

Six Six and six Six and six and six Is this the number of the beast? Six is followed by seven Is this the number of heaven? Who knows what these numbers Really mean, if anything at all Hexagram Is it six or is it seven Is it hell or is it heaven? The symbol of completion Hexagram is six but one more A point of balance Lets get right down to the core Six is incomplete But seven is really heaven Why?
