Best Craig Cornish Poems

+ Fav Poet


It's funny how the words of songs
Can climb into your mind,
That same song they've played
A thousand times.

The melody is all I'd hear,
The words were muffled then,
When we were so much in love
And oh such close, close friends.

But now the sadness in my heart
And fear of losing you,
Makes my thoughts a fog of feelings
Drifting out of view.

And the song they've played a thousand times
That slips within my ears,
Can live without the melody,
The words are all I hear.

    Nicely done. As someone that writes songs, I find that I usually forget the music first, so I have to keep practicing the ones I like most or that I thinks have the most market potential.

    Hey Craig, shirt up, dude! This latest is amazing. I don't know how many times I've had this same experience. Great rhyme and meter. Straightforward and simple, like the best poetry. IMHO.
