    Help me
    Through this crisis
    Of loneliness
    That has taken control
    Of me

    Let your playful
    Tenderness
    Take me back to
    Another day
    Another way
    Of looking at this
    …this drama mess
    I’m drowning in

    I…need…you.

    Help me in my quest
    For sincerity
    Unless
    You would rather see me
    Sleep walking
    Through a make-believe reality
    Wading in a river
    Unfamiliar to me

    I…need…you.

    Not Bobbie Jo, or
    Betty Sue
    Nor all those who
    Profess to be
    The moon and stars
    Of the night
    For me

    Caught up
    In an early morning
    Fantasy
    Come…
    Lay with me

    Oh, I see
    You’re back with your husband
    And your lover is coming over
    And you don’t have time for another
    And…

    WAIT!

    I understand
    You can’t come over
    …can’t be with me
    Like you’re supposed to
    But it’s o’kay
    I ain’t mad atcha.

    SOMETIMES
    the dam bursts
    SOMETIMES
    the river flow
    SOMETIMES
    we recognize mistakes from long ago...too long to correct, wisely.
    SOMETIMES.:)

    THANK YOU.
