lost in slumberland

the world is up
and moving round
and here i am
on the other side
of the land

thinking of you

i know
you're sleeping
renewing
and dreaming about
men things

like food
and technology
and boobs

and such

and even though
i know
i'd be a bit of distraction
for you

as you frolic in dreamland

i would walk through
hot coals
i would swim through
glass seas

i would sit through
a thousand tea party speeches

just to rest with you again

heart to heart
hand to hand
pillow stealing
blanket taking

forever lost in love

(soon)

needs

all i need
for a good poem
to happen

is a pencil
(not a pen, because
i don't trust the
meanderings
of
my own mistakes)

some paper
(even a scrap
taken from the
backside
of a magazine
will suffice)
and you

(looking over
my shoulder,
causing ideas
to happen
just by being
the warmth
by
my side)


(lean)

incomplete

you know
i'd call you up

but by now it's awkward

words would trip out
of my mouth
like a baby
just beginning to walk

in starts and stops

wavering to whatever point
i could find on the way
to the end of the sentence

grasping for meaning
while
gasping for air

wondering why the
distance was so
hard to overcome

and why you even
cared
for a dork like me

when i can't even
see
what i was before

...when i can't even find
the way to the door

(blah)

a pledge

let the trees pass fast
across my vision
let the sun flash bright
across the way

let the feeling of you
stay in my heart
let the thought of you
stay in my memory

forever

forever

will we sing to-gether
forever?

we will sing to-gether
forever.

will we write songs
forever?

we will write songs
forever.

will you stay by my side
forever?

i will stay by your side
until the next truck comes
down the street....

then i will drag you...
guitar and all...
into the soft grass of
the forest

then...
i will stay by your side
forever.

good plan

(forever)
