    Crazy is knocking
    and I simply refuse
    to even look thru the peephole.
    I ain't even tryin to hear no bad news
    See, I let crazy in before
    it was so hard to resist
    It captured my heart
    long before we even kissed
    Made it so I couldn't quite
    concentrate
    Burned my memory
    so I couldn't even compensate
    for it had me, wined me and dined
    me, had me feasting on humble pie
    and dranking to the point I thought
    my name was Nemo, and that's no lie
    We did the town, or maybe the town
    did us, doing the one step forward, two
    steps back shuffle, slow dragged to where
    it became one long slow comfortable screw
    Yea, I was screwed alright, crazy **** near
    ****** my brains out, to where I'm still
    looking for some of those **** marbles,
    to add to a bag I have yet to refill.
    So, keep on knocking, Crazy
    My mind is channel surfing on chill
    If I let you in, all hell is apt to break loose
    and I'll be damned if it will
    Again....

    Thank you Rich, one eye is on that door, but the other is lookin up towards the one who rests on high. For he always seems to know which direction he should lead.

    Oh myyyyyyyyyyy
    You know, sister, earlier this year I unleashed myself from a nasty cycle that sounds like what you're talkin about here. The way you put this almost has a touch of humor to it. My respect for you just went even further up, if that's possible.

    Thank you gempis, much respect toward you also. Sometimes it can be funny. It's what I feel when there is so much...too much crap going on in my life, and I know I need to just chill. Perhaps my environment and the folks in it won't change, but I sure as heck can. And a little prayer goes a long way too.

    First off sage, your comments aren't quite like anyone elses, you make a poet feel so appreciated...*smirk* I kinda know what you expected, but you can always count on me to do the unexpected, so I can't disappoint now can I? Can't afford to let crazy in, nope. Thanks a million times itself sis.
    Thank you for visiting this scribe again Rich, never know where the vibe will take me brotha.
