A PEACE Of My Mind!

RENDEZVOUS

I want to run and hideAnd it’s so sad

That at this point

I have no one by my side
But I want to go away

With all this negativity

And all this drama

I don’t want to stay
And I don’t know

Where I should be

And I just don’t have

Any idea where I’ll go
But if you feel the same

From being lost or lonely

It doesn’t matter

I’ll just be glad you came
I’ll be so glad when I get there

Wherever it is I can’t say

I know it’s far from here

And I’m packing today
The grass is green

Tucked deep between the trees

Lined along the flowers and the bees

Something seldom seen
House perched by the dock

Fish jumping in the lake

No demands to make

Never ever have to live by a clock
Rendezvous

Skies of blue

Life anew

Rendezvous
Rendezvous

Fields of happiness

A soothing caress

Rendezvous
Rendezvous

Nothing to do

Nothing more to go to

Rendezvous
I want to live

I want to enjoy

These are my final years

I only have myself to give
I need my peace

No more distractions

That bring me down

I need the inner noise to cease
And if you’d come with me

That’s okay

If you’d be happy

To let me just be
Rendezvous

Skies of blue

Life anew

Rendezvous
Rendezvous

Fields of happiness

A soothing caress

Rendezvous
Rendezvous

Nothing to do

Nothing more to go to

Rendezvous
I need a rendezvous

With life

A rendezvous

With you

A rendezvous

With me

A rendezvous

To get back
To get back

With what I lost

What I can’t find
A rendezvous

MISGUIDED GIRL

I don’t like to see you cryYou say you tell me everything

But you know I know that’s a lie
If you want to blame me

That’s just fine

You still have my sympathy
And you don’t think you’re happy

And you’re afraid of yourself

And you say it’s because of me
And heaven ain’t close

And hell can’t stop you

Didn’t you’re momma tell you you can’t bury ghosts?
Oh well

Misguided girl

Oh well

Your head spins

It’s easier to look around

Than look inside

It’s not about who loses

Or who wins

A soul that can’t be found

Oh well

Misguided girl

Oh well
Now you say you’re gonna move on

Do you think he’ll be any better

You have a problem that’s pretty common
But the perpetual cycle repeats itself

And you shout, “why does this keep happening?”

But that book you wrote sits unread on your shelf
Now I just don’t want you to see me

Cause I love you and I’m rooting for you

But it’d break my heart if you said you aren’t happy
Oh well

Misguided girl

Oh well

Your head spins

It’s easier to look around

Than look inside

It’s not about who loses

Or who wins

A soul that can’t be found

Oh well

Misguided girl

Oh well
I tried to give you all I could

Never guessed if I should

I didn’t ask you

But I did answer you

And it wasn’t enough

Trying to get your approval was so tough

But at the end of the day

It was your decision

No matter what I’d say

I could not fix that division
Oh well

Misguided girl

Oh well

Your head spins

It’s easier to look around

Than look inside

It’s not about who loses

Or who wins

A soul that can’t be found

Oh well

Misguided girl

Oh well

An Old Story

A friends post tonight reminded me of an old story from 30 years ago. True story. One night in college I was in my apartment with my very first girlfriend. It was late, and she had to go back to the dorms. I was going to be a gentleman and walk her back. We were in the kitchen, with the lights off, and I slipped my bare foot into one of my shoes, and a big old Oriental Water Bug squeezed his way through my toes! I screamed like a little girl, kicked out my leg, and my shoe went flying through the open kitchen window!! And the damn thing had wings (which prior, I did not know), and flew back in!!! I was jumping up and down, screaming. And my roommates and my old girlfriend never let me live that down…It is pretty damn funny now thinking about it…

The Big Fall

A beautiful thoughtIs a long string

How long it is

Depends who’s holding the other end
And you can hold my hand

And we can lock our fingers

And let these moments linger
And seal it all

With a kiss

Lick your lips

Wet your lips

With a kiss

A taste of love
Jumping off of rocks

Into the water in the quarry

Is a lot

Like how life is

And our love
You can hold on to me

And I will hold on to you

As we fall

As we fall

In love
And we can have this feeling

Floating high above the clouds

As we fall

As we fall

In love
You won’t ever have to look to find me

Because I promise I’ll be what you want to see

It’s right where we’ll be
The music that we hear

Is two hearts racing

When we are dancing

Dancing to our own music
As we fall

As we fall

In love
And we seal it all

With a kiss

Lick our lips

Wet our lips

With a kiss

A taste of love
As we fall

As we fall
