    Gotta keep my head up
    or my head may bang on
    pitying stars that have died and
    reside just above my head
    at six feet two before
    I bend on my wounded knees
    to bury my happiness
    six feet....
    ................under

    Gotta keep my head up
    before I run head on and
    collide with a smile that has
    met it's date after the "dash"
    read on tombstones

    Gotta keep my head up
    before I slip back in time
    and enslave myself to
    a stocism that despair
    hung around my neck like
    an upside down cross

    excuse me Lord blasphemy
    is not the intent because
    my faith soars with the clouds
    that play with the birds that
    fly free but my vision is
    blurry, my mind is water logged
    my tears flow INversely

    and I'm drowning.

    Sounds like.....

    someone needs a friend today?!

    Just remember, if you feel like
    you need to talk ~ call me...
    I also "listen" ...

    This is a tight piece ~ but when
    I read this, I know something is
    not right!

    You need to get at me!!

    One :heart:
