    Eyes are sizin' up my hair
    My eyes are in a daze
    Remembering the "HEYS!"
    In the hallways over there.
    Now--I am sitting here
    In a lacadasical haze.
    It flies so fast, the days.

    The Green Eyed Greed

    Suffered great embarrassment at the post office up the road:

    Some absurd
    fellow guy gave his sister the evil eye
    Cuz another guy
    glanced at her and saw
    something he thought he was blind to before
    she was all up on the jealous lovers arm
    Talking 'bout she loves when he's around
    When she knows she can't stand being on the same ground;
    he pouts What she knows is she is being cheated on
    beaten upon
    she is aware
    and is even scared even
    but rather suffer great despair
    when he scolds her then
    gives her gold nugget bars and money to do her hair.
    He can afford to, so,
    she would rather be seen with a black eye
    covered with a gucci eye glass;
    an injured spine, hidden under her burberry shirt and matching shawl
    All
    bought by him,
    she is fought by him,
    Just to have materialistic things
    Suffer her own spiritual and mental being
    Look at what she'll put up with!
    How crazy is our society in creating
    or attempting to create
    the portrait
    Of a perfect family.
    Their own green eyed ways is their foe
    together they'll witness the vile
    Accusations greed will enfold.
    The green eyed monster of her lover and her greed will forever proceed in their circle of a hurt and the hurted, greedy fiends.

    The Lost Search

    Searching...
    For something that has chosen not to be found
    by me or maybe I am searching for too much,
    with my heart on the ground.
    Looking...
    Not finding what is needed for me to be completed thoroughly and fit into society and it's business of being blissfully accepted and happy
    mmm....
    Somebody needs to tell me, just exactly what am I doing wrong? Whay am i finding myself singing the same sad songs?
    Pretending...
    Everything's alright when during the night sleep takes it's flight; Leaves me losing sight of something I have never seen
    being...
    The silence that drives me crazy while the quiet makes me feel so serene and keen to :
    Think[ing].....
    On these things; Ponder-ing what the singer sings; Sweet sugar-coated pain in every grain of the verse which is rehearsed through life's glass pane.
    Everyone....
    Sings the happy one, while, I-I stay in search of what seems to be hidden in dirt, where i seem to refrain from all the hurt...

    It's just, well, for me, it's just -(stuttering) It's like a search that cannot, has not, perhaps will not or wants to be found. By Me.
