Other Side of The Rainbow

It was on the other side of the rainbow
When I slid into a dream
I guess at that time nothing was, as it truly seemed
People came and people went
The needle played my blues
Through the rainbow dreams into leprechaun schemes
I was Papa Smurf with the magic brew
I built a Crystal Castle
On the shores of nevermore
I guess sometimes I wonder, “What was I searching for”
Beauty danced with big brown eyes
Though the faces always changed
Many times I slept with gals I thought were rather strange
Magic slides that no one hides
I wonder where they go?
I once slid down the rainbow just to see the show
The stars are bright it’s a beautiful night
Moonbeams illuminating mushrooms all around
Here by my house crickets and frogs are the only sound
Fairies dance like fireflies 
It’s really quite the sight
Ever tripped down Hollywood and Vine on a Friday night
I have lived through many dreams
Shared many angels souls
Shattered dreams and broken schemes, nothing but empty goals
Broken hearts torn apart
Blowing in the wind
Like fairy dust you just can’t trust
Not even your closest friend
I dove into a crystal pool on the other side of the hill
I swear sometimes in my ears I can hear the ringing still
I rode upon the tornado just to go spinning through the sound
Landed in a concrete room bouncing all around
Leprechauns and rainbows
Unicorn’s beautiful and white
When I finally kicked the horse
It wasn’t a pretty sight
Like a frog on the log or a sick old dawg
Just a skeleton in a box
With the strength of Arthur's sword and trust in the Lord
I shattered a thousand locks
Now I’m back on this side of the rainbow
And every thing’s looking bright
My Guinevere is here and I love her dear
She is such a lovely sight
Trials come like waterfalls
Flooding though our life
I truly am a lucky man to face them with my wife
Well let’s gig the frog and fire up the log
We’ll roast us a pig tonight
Life is good in my neighborhood
Nary a single vice
The other side of the rainbow now seems so very far away
I guess that is really about all I have to say

    Quite a written piece this, i have never taken drugs, but i can probably bet many many things have been seen, remembered and forgotten in the taking of them >> James

    Mesmerizing !... Truly Mesmerizing. The Dialect is Delectable, Imaginitive, Flowing, and taking us to the Heart of the Storyteller. The Honesty Comes Ringing Thru... Crystal, The Horse... It's Ok ... From Great Pain, Comes The Richest Gain ... Humility !Obviously, The Prodigal Son, Has Returned ... God Bless You and Your Wife and Family, Michael ... This is going into my Fav's...

    Another awesome write from you, Michael. Line #8 I think you want to begin with "I" rather than "A" and, Line #20 you want to say "I once slid ..." as opposed to "I once slide" ... just a couple of typos that caught my eye and my perfectionism can be a character defect .... Have a wonderful Holiday weekend and don't eat too much candy ... LOL
