    On the inside of my mind
    are perturbed thoughts
    resting in obscure angles
    on the precipice of
    davenport
    counting fingers and toes

    A series of
    complex sighs makes
    the room loud
    closing my eyes
    my conscience is sitting
    silently on the
    other life of this sofa
    telling me that
    I don't know how the
    French Riveria feels
    at sun set or
    just how vast
    are the skies
    and
    blue my passing thoughts'
    suprise

    On the inside of my mind
    all things matter
    however
    they seem to be caught
    in the impatience of a
    dream...
    unclear

    On the inside of my mind
    it's so peculiar
    and so preserve a calm
    from calamity
    ... sounds through this
    grove of a shattered spate
    of resonances jarring the
    mind awake

    On the inside of my mind
    into one's self come in again
    where Once upon a time
    is old
    if ever now wants to begin again
    I hear an echo as my heart unfolds

    On the inside of my mind
    empty space it comes to be
    rooms full of possibility
    ... a depth so great
    ... a way so free
