I Write

If you could only see the world the same way that I do,
You would have to see that it has a crowded view.

Bits and pieces of random things that to me seem inviting,
Get included as elements into the play that I am writing. 

You complain that you’ve told things to me but I say I’ve never heard,
While an old Twilight Zone has dialogue that I’ll remember word for word.

And sometimes at night a smile will come across my face,
As I run lines in my mind until I figure out the pace.

Would it drive you nuts to know that there’s a stage inside my mind,
Where actors are working diligently on a set that I’ve designed?

And I know the worst part of it for you, the thing that you really dread,
Is when our son will start to laugh as he watches cartoons in his head.

    Tony, those lines that run through your head are running through mine as well. Guess we get a lot of fragmented thoughts. Sometimes lines from a play I was in will come back to me with no provocation. I LOVE the last couplet!! Your son is only showing his creative imagination if he laughs at the "cartoons in his head." Like father, like son. Awesome! Love, Carolyn

    Cartoons are a good thing to have in your head. I liked it Tony. Now can you write one for me and title it "The Attack Of The Killer Tomatoe" Pelllleassseeee. It's an old movie. I hope you saw it. If not check it out. Love,Vie
